Pelosi: Occupy Movement Enhances Dems’ National Message
Here's what political genius and architect of the Democrat party's "shellacking" in the 2010 House elections, Nancy Pelosi, said of the "Occupy movement" at the end of last year:
“Our statement is we are reigniting, Democrats are reigniting the American dream, building ladders of success, removing obstacles to opportunity to all who work hard and play by the rules,” Pelosi said. “We have work to do. We think that important to that is enhanced by what’s happening in the Occupy [movement].
And here's what's happening in the "occupy movement":
Mayor Mike McGinn authorized a seizure of potential weapons after crowds of vandals dressed in black known as the "Black Bloc" smashed up banks and other businesses with sticks, batons, and rocks, reports the Seattle Times.
Niketown and American Apparel downtown were hit. A half dozen Starbucks closed early after stores reported broken windows.
At least two were arrested during the vandalism spree. Police said the vandals dressed in black were hard to track because they discarded their clothing to blend in with onlookers. Tear gas was used to stop some of the vandals.
The protesters also took out their anger at the U.S. Court of Appeals building, shooting paint balls at it, shattering glass doors, and attempting to ignite an incendiary device.
