Did the Obama Administration Tell Local Authorities to Take it Easy on the Occupods?

We know that the occupods caused millions of dollars in damages, committed multiple rapes,  and generally made a nuisance of themselves, local governments had difficulty with assigning the necessary resources in order to protect life and property.  However, it appears that the Obama Administration was very helpful, and gave wise advise…

The Obama administration told law enforcement authorities to go easy on Occupy Wall Street protesters, even though they were violating local laws, according to documents obtained by watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Emails from the General Services Administration show that the federal agency, acting on orders from the White House, told federal law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore., not to enforce curfews on protesters camped out on federal property…

“They have chained themselves to a large drum filled with concrete,” reads an email from Department of Homeland Security/National Protection and Programs Directorate Chief of Staff Caitlin Durkovich to GSA Public Buildings Service Commissioner Robert Peck. “GSA controls the permits and has asked FPS [Federal Protective Services] not to enforce the curfew at park and the prohibition on overnight encampments…

Peck — who later resigned amid revelations his agency held lavish junkets at taxpayers’ expense — replied: “Caitlin: yes, that is our position; it’s been vetted with our administrator and Michael Robertson, our chief of staff, and we have communicated with the WH [White House], which has afforded us the discretion to fashion our approach to Occupy issues…The arrests last week were carried out despite our request that the protesters be allowed to remain and to camp overnight…”

Well, it seems that there is a big difference between the Tea Party…

No rapes

No murders

No vandalism (in fact, they often left the place they visited cleaner than it was before)

But, my friends, that same Obama Administration declared the Tea Parties “Dangerous Terrorists!”  And then, to top it off?  The administration sends letters to local governments telling them to not arrest the occupods!

Occupy Oakland Burns Flags, Offers to “Kill the Police”

Just like the mythical 99%, right?  Just like the Tea  Parties, aren’t they?

Not so much, apparently.  Occupy Oakland displayed more of the mayhem and destruction that have been typical at Occupy events.  Several sites have posts for this, so I’ll link back so you can see more.

First off, The Blaze has this photo of the occupods having a patriotic moment…

You know, because 99% of the US population burns flags in a regular basis…while they’re invading city hall, right?

Verum Serum has some video of the occupods attacking police.

Because all totally peaceful and completely non-violent protesters bring their own riot shields and barricades to protests, right?

The Blaze has a video of arrests.  Listen closely to the crowd’s verbal reaction…

Remember when the Tea Parties did the exact same thing?  Yeah, I don’t either.

Hot Air has this, from CNN…

At the very end you will see the Mayor acting genuinely confused over why these “peaceful protesters” would break in to city property, destroy a model of the city and wreck a bunch of children’s art which was on display.

Er, why is anyone surprised by this?  This IS Occupy.  One is only surprised by this when they have drank the Kool-Aid, and think that these would be terrorists are nothing more than peaceful reformers.

Gateway Pundit has some pics…

The Oakland City Administrator called today’s actions of the Occupy Goons “bullying by threats of violence and illegal activity“…said she would not be bullied.

The Occupy Oakland Thugs announced their intention to take over the Henry Kaiser Convention Center and turn it into a social center and political hub today.  The criminals carried out their threat by marching through the streets and creating destruction and chaos along the way.  Perimeter fencing was torn down and construction equipment was destroyed.

For a bunch of folks displaying peace signs, they aren’t very peaceful, are they?

All sarcasm aside,  these people are violent, and they don’t appear to be going away.  They are openly opposed to freedom, and they aren’t afraid to destroy property and attack police to move towards their goals.  If they aren’t afraid to do any of these things to public facilities, businesses, or the police, they won’t be afraid of attacking you, your family, your children, your home, your work, or your church.  Needless to say, I am increasing my preparations to defend myself, and others, against these people.  At some point, it is distinctly possible that they will come after private citizens that oppose them.  While I have no desire for a larger conflict, it may be forced upon us.  If it is, so be it.

Occupods Trash Home in Seattle, Threatens News Crew

Imagine if you will, that you own a house that is under renovation.  It was purchased by your deceased wife, who wanted it renovated to make a nice home for a local family.  Now imagine that this happened….

This, my friends, is yet another example of what the occupods are.  They displayed it openly, in actions and words.  I think the video speaks for itself.

Occupod Plans for 2012 Revealed?

We’ve been saying that the Occupods were going to come back in the spring, and we assumed that they were going to have a switch in tactics.  After all, large, static protests puts all of their rather unsavory tendencies on public display.  MSN Money has some details..

Warning; OWS tells us America’s going to be shocked by not one but hundreds of wake-up calls in 2012.

How? In a recent Washington Post column, OWS leaders say they are accelerating their battle strategy in 2012. In what amounts to a new declaration of war that promises to electrify the 2012 elections, OWS will be using new asymmetrical warfare strategies, write two of the men who have been the driving force behind the movement since early this year: Kalle Lasn, the editor-in-chief of Adbusters magazine, and senior editor Micah White.

Listen to some of the specific guerrilla tactics they warn will be used in their 2012 “American Spring” assault: A “marked escalation of surprise, playful, precision disruptions, rush-hour flash mobs, bank occupations, ‘occupy squads’ and edgy theatrics.” And in a New Yorker magazine interview shortly after New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “military-style operation,” Lasn warned: “this means escalation, pushing us one step closer to a revolution.”

As Lasn and White warned: “In this visceral, canny, militantly nonviolent phase of our march to real democracy, we will ‘float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.’ We will regroup, lick our wounds, brainstorm and network all winter. We will build momentum for a full-

Among the biggest targets are events related to the proposed constitutional amendment to get money out of voting and reverse corporate personhood … presidential debates venues are high-profile … Supreme Court rulings on health care, immigration, voter redistricting … any events tied to “voting out incumbents” … supporting “Occupy Colleges” anger at oppressive student loans and no jobs … Federal Reserve System money and credit to Wall Street … special-interest K Street lobbyists … state recall campaigns … Keystone XL pipeline … Congressional hearings on jobs … taxes benefits for the rich … and the too-greedy-to-fail banks … corporations that pay less in taxes than in CEO salaries … occupy state and local campaign headquarters … support young millennials rejecting America’s failed two-party system … occupy lawns of elderly citizens being evicted … protesting states that repealed voting and union rights … and many more.

So, they are going to escalate their efforts.  If you recall, I published a post on that very topic in November…

When a child is told “no” they have a number of options on how to react; they might throw a tantrum, they might cooperate and get over it, or they may sulk and become passive aggressive, among others.  If the child pitches a fit, and it succeeds in achieving their goal, they will continue using this response until life intervenes and makes that behavior ineffective or unprofitable for them.  Doesn’t liberal reactions to losing a vote, or demanding a result, look like temper tantrums?  Also, if organizations, governments, or individuals “cave in” when the liberals whine, threaten, and protest; you might suspect that they’ll do it again.  After all, it worked all those other times!

In other words, they are going to throw a larger, albeit more wide-spread, tantrum.  Besides inflicting Alinsky on more people, it does serve another important function-to take attention off of the left’s natural tendencies.  The long-term occupations displayed them all, as if in a zoo:

1.  9 deaths.

2.  Drug use.

3.  Sexual assault/rape.

4.  Anti-Semitism.

5.  Openly promoting Communism, and denying the 100,000,000 deaths caused by that ideology in the last century.

6.  Random violence against others.

7.  Vandalism of local businesses.

8.  Urination/Defection on private and public property.

9.  Rats, and other vermin.

By limiting the exposure of those aspects of their movements, the occupods might do a better job staying on message.  However, by blocking traffic, disrupting local businesses, and generally making a nuisance of themselves, the occupods are likely to alienate more people than they win over.  That, and they have a little more than a year in which to do it, because if an actual Conservative get’s into the White House, the recovery should start in relatively short order.  Movements like occupy depend on misery, plus a false narrative, to grow.  Obama is helping to keep the misery going, by providing numerous disincentives to hiring.  Once those are removed, the misery will decrease, and the narrative will be discounted by reality.

In other words, 2012 is going to be a very interesting year.
