What did I tell you this “occupy” movement would come to? Rioting in the streets. And here you have it happening all around our country. The 99%ers are breaking the laws of our land. They’re setting fires and looting. Damaging property. Attacking the police. The protesters have gone from sympathetic to pathetic. They are criminals and should be dealt with accordingly.
And when the authorities go in to restore the peace, the protesters have the nerve to think of themselves as victims in all this. What do they expect the rest of us to do? Let them have their way just because most of us agree with what they are protesting against. WE (“we” being the lawful people of our country) hire the police to protect us from lawlessness. We don’t want them to stand back and let these lawbreakers wreak havoc in our cities. Put up tent encampments in our parks. Clog our sidewalks. Stop traffic and blockade our ports. We want to live in peace. And if it takes tear gas and rubber bullets to send the criminals packing…then so be it.
The more these protesters force the police and our government to protect our American way of life, the closer they push our country to the brink of tyranny. Look at what happened in Libya. The people rose up against their government. Kaddafi was forced to fight back to protect his country. Sure he was a dictator… but not unlike the “corporate greed” these Occupy Wall Streeters have vilified. Now the Libyans’ country is in ruins. They have to start over with a new government and a new way of life. But they are free now…you say. NO THEY ARE NOT. Like Egypt after ousting Mubarak, they are now under military rule, and military rule has never ended well for anyone.
Is that what these protesters want America to become? A crumbled nation? Do they want a bloody civil war? Military rule? Because they believe they haven’t been given their fair share of the wealth? How pathetic is that?
It goes beyond American Pork, my friends. Way beyond common sense.
