Obama Endorsed “Occupiers” Now Openly Calling for Violence

As Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano constantly reminds us, if you see something, say something.

Well, Janet, can you see this? (Langauge warning, of course; this isn’t a Tea Party video)

In case you missed any of the none-too-subtle language:

Later in the video, he then goes on to say “No more talking. They’ve got guns, we’ve got bottles. They’ve got bricks, we’ve got rocks…in a few days you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”

Sounds like a terrorist threat to me. Meanwhile, there’s a gunman on the loose who took a shot at the White House and is considered a threat to Obama. And you’ll never guess where he may have been staying while in DC:

Authorities suspect Ortega has been in the area for weeks, coming back and forth to the Washington Mall.  Before the shooting, he was detained by local police at an abandoned house. U.S. Park police say Ortega may have spent time blending in with Occupy D.C. protesters.

Remember, though, these are “mostly peaceful” protesters simply exercising their First Amendment rights while Tea Partiers pose a threat to the very fabric of our democracy or something.

Meanwhile, back at Zuccotti Park, the epicenter for the movement sweeping the nation and the world, reporters outnumber the protesters.

As of 11:15, it’s about 60 reporters, 45 occupiers.

The new count at Zuccotti Park – about forty five protesters, about sixty media types, and about one hundred security officers and NYPD officers.

Pathetic.
There’s even more bad news for Obama’s Army.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is not wearing well with voters across the country. Only 33% now say that they are supportive of its goals, compared to 45% who say they oppose them. That represents an 11 point shift in the wrong direction for the movement’s support compared to a month ago when 35% of voters said they supported it and 36% were opposed. Most notably independents have gone from supporting Occupy Wall Street’s goals 39/34, to opposing them 34/42.
Imagine how low they’d rate if they didn’t have two months of glowing, fawning coverage.
