Video: Crying Occupy Toronto Protesters - CLASSIC!

If ever there existed :28 of video that gets funnier every time you watch it, this one is a blue ribbon candidate. There are really two guys to watch here. The guy on the right (the one who looks like a Red Hot Chili Pepper) is upset that Occupy Toronto's library is being shut down. The guy on the left gets increasingly emotional with every word RHCP says.

"We're not hurting anyone. We just wanna be here and meet each other, and learn together. We just wanna try and build a new world."

Hey RHCP, all of that can be done somewhere else. Move along.

They need to start reading new books.

Bill Ayers: Obama's new Occupy Wall Street Czar?

Just two days ago, Barack Obama expressed his continuing support for the Occupy Wall Street movement. One week earlier, it was reported that former domestic terrorist and Obama neighbor colleague, Bill Ayers was giving instruction to Occupy Chicago.

Now, on the heels of Obama's professed re-support of OWS, Ayers will be speaking at Occupy Harrisburg.

Via PennLive:
Bill Ayers, a controversial activist and retired professor, will be back in the midstate next month to address an Occupy Harrisburg gathering. 
Ayers will lead a discussion at 6 p.m. Dec. 14 at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore. He is expected to discuss activism and grassroots organization. The talk is free and open to the public.
I took personal enjoyment in reading about Occupy's attempt to sit on the fence.
The Occupy group is hosting Ayers in an effort to hear all views, but is not endorsing him or his views, member Tyler Chick said. 
Ayers spoke at Dickinson College in February and at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore in 2010. That discussion was so inspiring, Chick said, that he wanted to invite Ayers back.
Can we finally say that Obama and Ayers were more than just neighbors? Bill Ayers, Obama's Occupy Czar.

Video: Al-Qaeda Flags Flying in Egypt...

...and the mainstream media is sleeping. The only thing more shameful than the mainstream media being so blatantly wrong so as to push a glowing narrative about the 'Arab Spring' is for them to avoid correcting the record when  it has become so blatantly obvious that they were wrong while others had it nailed.

That leads to this video from Egypt in which black al-Qaeda flags are in abundance and the cleric speaking to the camera sings the praises of Osama bin Laden.


Serving as another log on the proverbial fire is Muslim Brotherhood leader, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who has reportedly arrived in Cairo to join in the festivities.

Paging Anderson Cooper......

OWS'r Arrested for Threatening to Murder Governor

How many OWS miscreants must rear their heads before it becomes patently obvious to more than about 40% of Americans that this movement is full of miscreants? In this case, Nathan Shafer, an OWS sympathizer, threatened to murder South Carolina Governor and Tea Party favorite Nikki Haley on facebook. I keep coming back to the exchange between Piers Morgan and Gabrielle Giffords' husband Mark Kelly, in which the host brought up Sarah Palin as some sort of irresponsible accomplice to the Giffords shooting, despite the Alaska governor having NO connection to that shooting.

Moreover, the shooter, Loughner, was apolitical at best, a crazed leftist at worst.

Contrast that with Shafer, who is obviously political - he is an OWS sympathizer - threatening the life of the South Carolina governor. Wouldn't you like to ask both Kelly and Morgan who's responsible for Shafer's rage?

Here's a news report from KLTV:

Former CAIR Executive Director Heading Occupy Miami

This anti-Semitic sentiment within the Occupy Wall Street movement is becoming rather systemic. One of the founders and spokesmen for Occupy Miami was not only an Executive Director for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in South Florida but he's led anti-Israel protests that called for bombing Israel with nukes and sending Jews back to ovens. Yet, Barack Obama has recently endorsed the Occupy movement while Mohammad Malik apparently faces no repurcussions.

Via WND:
The recent executive director of the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations' South Florida chapter is a founder and spokesman of Occupy Miami, WND has learned. 
Mohammad Malik currently is as an activist with several other Islamic groups. 
He has led hate-filled anti-Israel protests in which participants were filmed wearing Hamas paraphernalia while chanting "Nuke Israel" and "Go back to the oven" – a reference to Jews being killed in the Holocaust. 
Malik has been widely quoted in the Florida news media in recent weeks speaking for Occupy Miami. 
The Miami Herald identified Malik as one of the organizers of Occupy's Miami's downtown campsite headquarters.
According to the current Executive Director of CAIR South Florida, Nezar Hamze, Malik was given an honorable discharge from the group:
Malik departed CAIR several months ago. He previously worked for ACLU Florida, coordinating its Racial Justice and Voting Rights Projects. 
He did not return email and phone requests for comment. 
Nezar Hamze, the current director of CAIR-South Florida, told WND yesterday that Malik departed his Islamic group under friendly terms. 
"He left several months ago, maybe almost a year ago," said Hamze. "He got a better position, I think, at the ACLU," he said.
Once again, in light of these realities, I think it's important to underscore the fact that Gabrielle Giffords' husband, Mark Kelly, has decided to go after Sarah Palin for her 'target' chart while these vehement anti-Semites and other miscreants within the OWS crowd get the endorsement of the President of the United States.

There is MUCH more on Mohammad Malik and OWS Miami.

Read it all.

Obama Doubles Down on Support for OWS

When Barack Obama initially expressed support for the Occupy Wall Street crowd, they hadn't yet racked up thousands of arrests and millions of dollars in damages. With the passage of time, the OWS movement has become a political liability for the administration. Obama's relative silence may have been perceived as a tacit admission that the administration should distance itself from the miscreants.

That perception would be wrong. Obama has come out and publicly re-expressed his support for OWS.

Via Daily Caller:
When Occupy protesters interrupted his Nov. 22 campaign trail speech at a high school in Manchester, N.H., President Barack Obama declared that, “Young people like the ones here today, including the ones who were just chanting at me —you’re the reason I ran for office in the first place.” 
Obama’s unscheduled Nov. 22 endorsement of the Occupy protesters broke his deputies’ month-long silence on the increasingly controversial group. For almost six weeks, Obama’s officials had not endorsed the groups’ actions, offering only bland answers when asked by reporters for comment. 
The movement garnered much favorable media coverage in October, prompting initial endorsements in mid-October by Obama and his two leading election advisers. 
But since then, the Occupy encampments have been the scenes of several murders, rapes, diseases, assaults and riots.
This re-endorsement may be very troublesome but remember what uncle Saul Alinsky says in rules #7 and #8:
Rule 7: A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues. 
Rule 8: Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this that will cause the opposition to react to your advantage.”
As for Rule #7, Van Jones expressed to CNN earlier this month that the strategy for OWS was to change the tactic, to shift away from 'anger' and lawlessness to the political arena of elections. To this point, the protesters don't seem all that much interested in doing that. This could be telling Obama the ideologue that the current OWS tactics have not yet become a drag, which leads us to Rule #8; it starts out with the words, 'Keep the pressure on.'

While this may be a miscalculation on the part of Obama, it might just tell us that he has nowhere else to go, that attempting to change the direction of OWS is too monumental, that this movement is all he has left, and that his only option is full investment.

Juxtapose Obama's continued support for the lawless OWS crowd with Gabrielle Giffords' husband implying that Sarah Palin had some culpability when it came to his wife's shooting.

Some things are beyond remarkable.

Pathetic: Husband of Gabrielle Giffords 'Targets' Sarah Palin

The husband of Gabrielle Giffords, the congresswoman who was shot last January, is shockingly playing politics with his wife's shooting and 'targeting' Sarah Palin. If you remember, the left began politicizing the shooting within a few short hours; Paul Krugman comes to mind. The left continued to fish for a narrative and found one to beat on. Before the 2010 elections, Palin's team released a map of congressional districts with targets on them to illustrate 'targeted districts.' One of those districts was Giffords. The left actually drew a connection between those targets and the motive of Jared Loughner.

Conveniently absent from the left was the fact that Loughner was not motivated by those targets at all; if he was in the least bit political, he was a leftist (communist manifesto was a favorite book).

Yet, Mark Kelly has decided nearly one year later to go after Palin instead of do the responsible thing and categorically reject that narrative. This is really disgraceful.

Via the Telegraph:
Mark Kelly has spoken candidly about the moment he learned his wife, Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords, was shot at a voting event in Tuscon - and his disappointment at not having been contacted by Sarah Palin following the tragedy. 
In a guest appearance on last night's CNN Piers Morgan Tonight show, the husband and father berated Ms Palin's irresponsibility, while Mr Morgan said he found her lack of contact 'extraordinary.' 
Recalling the horrific moments he learned of the fatal shooting in January - and the ensuing misinformation that led him to believe his wife had been killed - the co-author of Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope revealed that he believed his wife's strength saved her. 
But it was the lack of any contact from former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin that was 'surprising' said Mr Kelly.
In order for Kelly to be surprised by the fact that he didn't receive a call from Sarah Palin necessarily means that he accepted the absurd premise that she had any degree of culpability in his wife's shooting. Obviously, the media narrative was effective in this regard. It actually caused Kelly to buy into it to some degree.

No doubt, he was angry and wanted to blame someone; it's human nature, which is what highlights the irresponsibility of the media. The fact remains, however. Sarah Palin had absolutely nothing to do with Giffords' shooting. NOTHING. Logically, why would he call the Giffords? Wouldn't the media exploit that as an admission that she did?
Mr Kelly said that while he believes Ms Palin is not responsible for what happened that day, her actions were irresponsible. 
'You know, this was no surprise to us,' he said. 'Gabby even spoke about it before January 8th, during the election cycle, leading up to the election, in an interview... She made is very clear that, hey, this is what's going on, and this could ultimately incite people to do violent things. ' 
So it wasn't a big surprise on January 8th...having said that, you know, Sarah Palin certainly is not responsible for what happened. But I think the angry rhetoric in an election year is not - it's not helpful.'
Here's all you need to know. "Sarah Palin certainly is not responsible for what happened. But..." This is really, really shameful. The word "but" in that regard means that Kelly is implying Palin had a degree of culpability when she had NONE. Isn't he doing the same thing to Palin that she is allegedly responsible for doing to his wife - putting her in danger? This guy is an astronaut and obviously very intelligent, which is what makes his amazingly dumb behavior all the more troubling.
