The Power of Cool

via The Power of Cool – Victor Davis Hanson – National Review Online.

“Identity is key here. In general, to win exemption from the left-wing critique of America, the affluent must construct cool identities as far distant as possible from the white Christian heterosexual male, who is most culpable for creating our present affluence from ill-gotten gains.”

Cool exemption for those drinking the Kool Aid.

Breitbart Battles Cenk Ugyur On Tea Party, Occupy Protests

via Breitbart Battles Cenk Ugyur On Tea Party, Occupy Protests | RealClearPolitics.

“Andrew Breitbart and “The Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur spar in a fiery debate over the Tea Party, alleged racism during the Obamacare protests on Capitol Hill, the Occupy protests, Shirley Sherrod and much, much more.”

Must watch video. The left hangs onto their narrative no matter what. Tea Party vs Occupy Now.

“The ad threatens to shut down the economy if their demands are not met: “And if they don’t listen … if they ignore us and put our demands on the back burner like they’ve done so many times before … then, with Gandhian ferocity, we’ll flashmob the streets, shut down stock exchanges, campuses, corporate headquarters and cities across the globe … we’ll make the price of doing business as usual too much to bear.”

Enough said.You get the idea.

Occupy Oakland: Arrests may top 400; City Hall vandalized

via Occupy Oakland: Arrests may top 400; City Hall vandalized – latimes.com.

“Quan condemned the local movement’s tactics as “a constant provocation of the police with a lot of violence toward them” and said the demonstrations were draining scarce resources from an already strapped city. Damage to the City Hall plaza alone has cost $2 million since October, she said, about as much as police overtime and mutual aid.”

More from our Occupy friends, but don’t worry Ms. Pelosi, they’re not violent like the Tea Party.

via Smoke Bomb Thrown Over White House Fence During Occupy Protest.

“Two smoke bombs were apparently thrown over the White House fence as an “Occupy” protest grew feisty Tuesday evening, FOX News Channel reported.

The White House was put into partial lockdown as a result, after the devices were found on the North Lawn.”

More from our Occupy friends.

Plans floated to fix City Hall lawn ruined by Occupy L.A. campers

via Plans floated to fix City Hall lawn ruined by Occupy L.A. campers – latimes.com.

“The Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks has created a website where the public can get information on plans to restore the City Hall lawn destroyed by the Occupy L.A. encampment.”

Key word; destroyed. Someone has to pay for this and I’m guessing it won’t be Occupy LA.

via Protesters arrested in NYC on New Years Photos | Protesters arrested in NYC on New Years Pictures – Yahoo! News.

“An Occupy Wall Street protester is arrested by police early Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012, in New York. Protesters clashed with police as they marched through lower Manhattan. Dozens of protesters were arrested as they tore down the barricades surrounding New York Citys Zuccotti Park just before midnight on New Years Eve. AP Photo/Stephanie Keith.”

Let’s count the number of Occupy people arrested versus the Tea Party. I guess the term private property is not in their vocabulary.

via Video: Des Moines coffee-shop owner evicts Occupy protesters; ‘You’re not allowed to ever come back’ | The Ticket – Yahoo! News.

“On Friday morning before a planned event appearance by Newt Gingrich, some members of “Occupy Iowa” made a stop at Java Joe’s, a coffee shop here that MSNBC has been broadcasting from.”

Free speech to the left means shutting down others rights.

“Four protesters, including the spokesman of Occupy Charlotte, were charged after setting fire to two American flags early Friday near the Occupy camp in Center City, police said.”

Don’t think there was any flag burning at the Tea Party events, but who cares.

LA Mayor calls for budget cuts – cites Occupy LA costs

LA Mayor calls for budget cuts – cites Occupy LA costs.

“Selfish, arrogant, and stupid. That’s what adolescents and the Occupy movement have in common.’

They don’t clean up after themselves then expect others to pay for it.

Why The Lack Of Blacks At The Occupy Wall Street Protests?

Why The Lack Of Blacks At The Occupy Wall Street Protests? – Investors.com.

“Back in the day, the Tea Party’s alleged lack of black participants was beyond worrisome to the media. The lack of black faces in the crowd allowed the major media to describe the Tea Party as racially exclusionary, if not … racist!”

The most obvious of all media bias examples.

Occupy L.A. plans picket line at Long Beach port

Occupy L.A. plans picket line at Long Beach port – latimes.com.

“The target of the Long Beach protest is SSA Marine, a shipping company. Occupy L.A. demonstrator Michael Novick said protesters chose SSA Marine because “they embody all the ills of this economic regime we live under.”

More from the anarchists who have the support of our President.

Obama Drafts the Tea Party into the Occupy Wall Street Mob

Obama Drafts the Tea Party into the Occupy Wall Street Mob.

“What “same perspective” would that be, Governor? The OWS folks want to replace capitalism with…well, something unidentified. The TPM wants the federal government to stop spending the country into a bankruptcy that will enslave their children and grandchildren for generations. How is that the “same perspective”? Never mind; yesterday the president made it so.”

Obama keeps running as an outsider (ala community organizer) when he’s on the inside. Tyring to link the two movements is complete dishonesty.

Sanitation officials said Wednesday that they expect to haul away 30 tons of debris from the Occupy L.A. encampment –- everything from clothing to heaps of garbage to oddball curiosities left behind by the protesters who lived at the City Hall tent city for two months.”

Well, you didn’t bother to clean up so I guess you’re not out looking for a job either.

A Tale of Two Protests: Media Cheer Wall Street Occupiers But Jeered Tea Partiers

http://www.mrc.org/realitycheck/realitycheck/2011/20111013100045.aspx.

“The Occupy Wall Street protestors have received overwhelmingly positive coverage from the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) news networks, as they used their airtime to publicize and promote the aggressively leftist movement. In just the first eleven days of October, ABC, CBS and NBC flooded their morning and evening newscasts with a whopping 33 full stories or interview segments on the protesters. This was a far cry from the greeting the Tea Party received from the Big Three as that conservative protest movement was initially ignored (only 13 total stories in all of 2009) and then reviled.”

So obvious to anyone with an open mind.
