What is it that they want? OWS protestors disrupt Romney rally
If they are going to protest against candidates just because they're rich, their already incoherent message becomes even more obtuse.
What is it that they want? Do they want Romney impoverished - taking away his wealth and punishing him for his success? Why violate his free speech rights? What does that prove?
It is becoming clear that as the OWS movement goes along, they don't have a clue about how to achieve any of their goals except to take from those who have more and give to those who have less. The concept of creating more for everyone escapes them as does a basic sense of propriety and good manners.
Occupy Wall Street protestors interrupted Mitt Romney's speech in a suburban Des Moines warehouse Monday night, breaking in with their rallying cry of "mic check" and yelling up at the candidate.
Romney paused, seemingly thrown off-balance, and the crowd began chanting "Mitt, Mitt," loudly to drown out the protestors.
The protests quieted down for a moment. Romney thanked his supporters and then tried to return to his speech. "Let's talk about the Constitution again," he began.
"Citizens United is not a part of the Constitution," a protestor yelled. "Stop the war on the poor," another proclaimed, leading to boos from the crowd and a tight smile from Romney.
A supporter yelled "go to work," drawing laughs from the partisan audience.
Romney then praised the first amendment. "Isn't it great to live in a country where people can express their views?" he asked." I'll tell you one thing: When President Obama is here I hope some of you in the audience will make the same sounds about his policies."
About fifteen protesters were pulled away from the campaign event and three arrested sources said.
Occupy Wall Street protestors have disrupted various political events around Iowa in the last few weeks - five were arrested outside Ron Paul's headquarters last Thursday and others have protested outside of Romney's and President Obama's Iowa offices.
There are concerns that the OWS crowd will show up at caucus sites tonight and attempt to disrupt the proceedings. In other words, when the "99%" engages in participatory democracy, their voices must be sacrificed for the cause - whatever that is.
In truth, these jamokes are only concerned about publicity. The numbers of OWS protestors have fallen catastrophically and their only strategy appears to be mugging for the TV cameras. As clowns, they make good entertainment. As a political movement, they are a joke.
