In case you don't know...and how would you, since it's NO WHERE to be found on the "news"....
The Wall Street protestors are being arrested and roughed up by the police.....
No guns, as the TP had. No threatening signs, as the TP had, and NO media coverage, as the TP had.
In fact, if a TPer breaks a nail, the world knows.
This is un-equal treatment, and shows the right-wing, corporate bias we live under.
Citizens United, we bow to you.
You forgot to add that the "protestors are being arrested and roughed up by the police" for no reason.
Methinks you are spending too much reading propaganda on the web if you have privileged information not reported anywhere else.
Some people get messages that some of us don't. Its really, really weird.
No it's called "not being blind to the truth"
I agree. With just a few google searches we can find that 911 was a CIA plot and the planes were empty of passengers, as was the Kennedy assassination. We can know and understand that mankind has never walked the surface of the moon and that aliens have abducted and probed 100's of people.
It's just a matter of accepting anything and everything written on the WWW as absolute gospel. I typically require a little more, but also understand that many don't. Anything showing that government, rich people and particularly anyone in the banking industry is evil is sucked up like water on the desert.
Well, if you're "not blind to the truth" and believe everything you see on the net that is what you can learn...
The two aren't mutually inclusive. It depends on where the truth is, sometimes it's on the internet, sometimes it isn't.
Yea I had this message from my bank saying they made a mistake and refunding $$ back to me.
Nonsense! They are a bunch of law breakers trespassing and protesting without a permit harrassing the police disrupting business and citizens with their disorderly conduct and their stupid ideas! Protesting capitalism as unfair? Why don't they get jobs? Oh that's right because Obama the anti capitalist is busy destroying jobs! Those idiots are protesting the wrong thing! Someone should direct them to the white house.
You can google it! And you can see pictures of it!
But the best part is when tp'ers whine about "their rights beiong violated", when they are given free reign!
WHO ever bought a GUN to a political rally? Would have been wham bam thank you maam---hands behind your back!
But not the TP......oh no.
And here's something else you can google: 72 year old man ARRESTED at Cantor meeting--for speaking up!
oh the shame!
Yes, you can google Tom Nielsen. You find dozens of inflammatory blogs about it, but very little actual information.
Reading through around 20 of them I find that Nielsen was arrested for tresspassing (NOT "speaking up") and resisting arrest.
The Ryan meetings have apparently suffered escalating levels of disruption and there were around 100 protestors creating another disturbance at this particular event.
Why can't you simply post factual, complete information instead of falsehoods intended to raise emotions about something that didn't happen? Arrested for speaking up indeed!
Guess it depends on where you look:
"WASHINGTON -- A Democrat was arrested by local police at a public meet-and-greet event for Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) on Monday, with three men pulling him out of the building and pushing him to the ground for allegedly causing a disturbance in the coffee shop.
Jon Taylor, the man at the center of the controversy, said he was "manhandled" by police from Louisa, Va. He and three other Democrats -- including his wife, who held a sign promoting Cantor's Democratic opponent Rick Waugh -- went to the event with the intent to ask Cantor questions since he has refused to debate Waugh."

Now--where's the bleating from the right about "our rights being violated"?
Pshaw.....it's JUST the opposite!
Interesting. ONE of us (probably me) picked up on the wrong man.
Nevertheless, he was arrested for causing a disturbance in the coffee shop, not for speaking up at a political meeting (unless it was held in the coffee shop?). He might have intended to as Cantor questions and to "speak up" but it doesn't seem he ever made it to Cantor at all.
Not true. He was arrested after he began speaking to Cantor...Cantor probly did not like his tone.....not bowing and scraping enuff would be my guess.
??? Your own link says he was arrested for creating a disturbance in the coffee shop. So he made the disturbance, left to talk to Cantor and THEN was arrested for being in the coffee shop?
What's odd is that Cantor the big cry-baby had him arrested!
You have a short memory.....
Remember when the Baggers first came on the scene? Yelling about Obama?
Remember the healthcare debates that were going on around the country?
Remember how the Democrats were getting harrassed, confronted, yelled at, screamed down by the Tea-Bags?
Funny--no one was arrested. Funny, they came to see Obama sporting guns. Went to parades with semi-autonmatic rifles for all the kids to see....ooooooh, big man!
But now that the pinky-ring boys are in charge, they can't handle any dissent. In fact, dissent is not allowed. Just like the Bush era. JUST.
Wall Street protestors are treated like criminals. Baggers with guns are treated with kid gloves.
Face it...dissent is not allowed when the righty's are in charge. It's a fact of life.
Then, they cry waa waa when someone tells them to tone down the violent rhetoric.
Never mind...I just saw it on the National News....this poor kid...on the ground, bloody, and the cop being very rough....a dam kid!
Screw that. It's obvious you can protest the president, but not Wall Street....
Citizens United, we bow and scrape to you.
This discussion actually raises a point that bothers me on almost a daily basis.
I don't think there's anyone among us (hubbers posting on the forums) who
believes that just because we read it on the Internet it's gospel truth. Or even truth. Or even semi-truth.
There are no standards of journalism on the net.
Anyone can post any damned thing they want in support of any damned cockamamie conspiracy theory they happen to espouse.
On the opposite side, we also know that just because it doesn't appear on the mainstream media news doesn't mean it didn't happen and isn't significant.
An example is how long the media ignored Ron Paul in favor of its darling du jour -- first Palin, then Bachmann, then Perry.
If we ONLY get our news from the networks we're equally at sea in terms of educating ourselves.
So the question I have (which is likely rhetorical) is:
Are there ANY reliable news sources any more?
No. Oh, I will believe my local paper that the high school is having a football game Saturday evening, but that's about it.
Absolutely everything we see is being spun one way or another. No one gives all the information available; only that which will bolster their desired point. Few outside of professional journalists (because of legal issues) will even bother to check their news sources of info.
Check and question everything you see.
This was from an article on an NBC affiliate website..."Jon Taylor, a member of the Louisa Democratic Committee and a supporter of Rick Waugh refused to leave the private event. The owner of the shop then got police involved."
It was a disturbance at a PRIVATE event on private property...It would seem the owner of the establishment would have the right to secure his/her own property. Whether Republican or Democrat, they should have the right to determine who stays in their private establishment.
On the Second point about the guns at a Tea Party event...was it in in a right to carry state? I'm asking because I am not familiar with this incident...do you have a link or anything to help me read about this incident?
Don't you remember seeing it on the news? Men had guns strapped to their legs at an Obama rally....because that is another Obama smear...that he is trying to "take away your guns". They had to stand there and be threatening to prove they could, I guess.
But I geuss Cantor taking away a constituents free speech is A-OK with the Baggers.
Taking away my privacy rights is A-OK too.
Pick and choose your rights. The ones they don't like can go, and the ones they love must be blasted across the National stage with a bullhorn.
And our fellow YOUNG PEOPLE....who are standing up to Wall Street, when we won't....they get manhandled, bloodied and arrested by the police: aka the Guardians of the Wealthy.
Oooooh, Go Boston!~
Rumsfeld here, people protesting, promising a citizens arrest.
The people will not go back to sleep again...ever.

http://www.allheadlinenews.com/briefs/a … 20buildingI haven't seen much reporting on this! Looks like the left has a penchant for weapons! I wonder what they were planning to do with this? This is an indication of what to expect when the left doesn't get their way!

Is it just another version of Occupy Wall Street? I failed to understand how a major US city would just allow a group of protesters to take over a section of a city including a police precinct. It is George Orwell's 1984 coming true in front of our eyes and we have city officials standing by...
