It took two months but the leadership of the city of New York finally grew some courage and kicked the Occupy Wall Street mob out of Zuccotti Park.
It was long overdue.
The mob had been encouraged by the appeasement of the liberal city government and in particular Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
While the liberal billionaire mayor and some of the other members of the limousine liberal set would be happy to tolerate Occupy Wall Street and show their support for the (literally) unwashed masses, their tolerance has its limits and when the Occupy mob announced it was going to take actions to try to totally shut the city down, that was too much.
The Police moved in to clear the park for a long overdue cleaning. Humoursly the Occupy mob shouted, “whose park? Our park,” as the police moved in to clear them out.
The park actually belongs to someone else. The mob’s attitude towards the ownership of the park as well as America in general speaks volumes about how they feel.
The private property rights of the owner of Zuccotti Park do not matter. The rights of other Americans do not matter. All that matters is the mob.
The Occupy mob was told they could return to the park after it was cleaned but this time tent would not be allowed.
The Occupy mob has already vowed to return, with tents, so it will be interesting to see if the government in New York City will now do something about it.
The Occupy movement is becoming more radical and now it is simply a question of how long before they become seriously violent. In San Francisco, members of the mob have used razors to slash San Francisco police officers. IN Oakland there was vandalism of the downtown area.
The Occupy mob has gone in the last couple of weeks to various venues and disrupted speeches by people they did not agree with. Speeches by Michele Bachmann and Scott Walker have been disrupted, as was a speech at the US Chamber of Commerce and the swearing in of Congressman Bob Turner. The meeting of the Long Beach City Council was disrupted by Occupy Long Beach because that body would not let Occupy Long Beach have its way.
In short, the Occupy mob has no respect for the rights of anyone else. They have no respect for the free market.
While that may sound odd, the free market is the basis of the freedoms we enjoy. The free market says that you have the right to own your property and your skills and use them in the manner you think are best. Implicit in the free market is the right you have but also the right your neighbors have to do the same thing. The only restriction on that is when those activities become destructive to liberty or the rights of others.
The Occupy mob wants to see the free market system destroyed. Freedom and liberty cannot exist apart from a free market system. There is a reason why every nation that has moved to a system of central planning and massive government control of the economy has fallen to tyranny.
Tyranny is the ultimate goal of the occupy mob. The destruction of freedom is their aim. Most Americans realize this.
Unfortunately, the liberals who are running some of America’s largest cities do not. We can only hope they learn quickly.
Unfortunately, the liberal, progressives running some of our biggest cities want the destruction of freedom
did the cases of TB have anything to do with it? it is no joke.
You are right about that.
Modern TB is definitely no joke, there is a lot of it about that is extremely hard to kill. This is partly the result of the urban crack epidemic, with addicts living in awful conditions and taking irregular dosages of antibiotics if any. It is a potentially terrible public health problem.
Its about time we all started calling this movement its most precise name:PUTREFY WALL ST.!Its about time the NYPD started to enforce the law there.CLEAR`EM OUT AND KEEP `EM OUT so that the putrefaction can be eliminated!~
There's been no real law in NYC since the days of Guliani.
Liberals learn anything??????????? NEVER. A blind deaf bat could learn more than a liberal would ever hope to learn. And the OWS crowd.....a bunch of lazy useless pieces of filthy flesh..................
Judson, you ask why it took so long, it's very complex. First of all Bloomberg, the liberal, has connections to Zuccotti Park. His girlfriend sits on the board of directors of the real estate company who owns the park. The company in turn is well connected to a company who received millions of dollars recently from Obama to start a wind farm in NH.
Everything rotten that stinks leads back to this POTUS. Do you honestly think Bloomie is going to interfere with that?
Secondly, everything today is high tech and taped. The smallest infraction, by police, would be seen as a law suit by the commie ACLU. They are all scared. However, the residents and small business owners in the area are also getting angry, rightly so. Bloomie after all is still a businessman. He is torn between politics and his NYC residents.
Why on earth would they send in rookies to clear the park? It was reported on the Drudge Report, that the cops weren't told until last minute of their assignment. Nothing seems to add up in this country anymore.
that's true, Agi. The police arrested everyone at Occupy Nashville for violating the curfew and camping out on the plaza where they have taken up residence. The ACLU immediately filed suit, and now the governor has announced he will drop the charges on everyone.
The goal of these radical progressives is the destruction of freedom and the ushering in of a European socialists system. I just hope in 2012 we can flush out the group in DC and start returning our government to it's Constitutional roots.
OWS created a mess.
In my city the stupid dumocrap mayor said they could stay in the city park.
The state owned property was one that they could not stay overnight in.
Soooo....yep you guessed it. The other night OWS goes to the state side of the park so they could be arrested.
Here we go again -- the city's District Attorney, a dumocrapper, says although they are arrested because they will not leave the park by curfew (11 PM) he will not prosecute.
So on the news the OWS bums openly stated this is what they want -- get arrested and they will keep doing it since nothing is going to happen anyway.
When the dumocraps are in control we get chaos.
And I'm very tired of it.
They figured out they get free food, a warm shower and soft bed. They aren't stupid!
