Wall St. Squatters – like the Tea Party? I don’t think so!

This is like the tea party?

Someone needs a reality check if this can be compared to the Tea Party.

There is no comparison – NONE. Tea party people don’t crap on police cars. They don’t prod and provoke the police. They don’t leave trash when they go home.  And they go home at the end of the day because they have LIVES and jobs.

Tea party people bring lawn chairs and bottled water and signs for the day and then they LEAVE. They don’t stay and make the neighbors lives miserable with drum circles and chants. They don’t stay and harm the economy of the small business people in the area.  And when they leave,  they leave it cleaner than when they arrived.

Finally, the stupid Mayor is coming to his senses. Be sure and watch the video at this site too:

NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Friday accused the Wall Street demonstrators of trying to cripple New York City’s economy.

“What they’re trying to do is take the jobs away from people working in this city,” the mayor declared in his harshest criticism of the three-week-old protest that has caught the attention of the nation.

“They’re trying to take away the tax base we have because none of this is good for tourism.”

Although he expressed sympathy for “some of their complaints,” Bloomberg warned that addressing them has to be accomplished “without hurting people and making the problem worse.”

“If the jobs they are trying to get rid of in this city — the people that work in finance, which is a big part of our economy — we’re not going to have any money to pay our municipal employees or clean the blocks or anything else.”

The mayor’s comments came in response to a caller to his WOR Radio show who asked what the city intended to do about the protest headquarters in Zuccotti Park, which is near her apartment and where hundreds of people are camped out.

“What about my rights to use the park?” asked the caller, named Marsha.

“This is a little bit of greenery that we reclaimed after Sept. 11. It’s not usable. There is a general sense of incivility down there. But worst of all are the drums and the shouting. I know they’ve agreed to stop the drumming. Last night they were drumming until 10:45. Someone did a little practice drumming this morning at 7:50.”

“We couldn’t agree more,” replied the mayor.

“We are trying to deal with this in a way that doesn’t make the problem grow and protects everybody’s rights.”

He hinted that the city is hoping the protest peters out on its own.

“I think we let some of this — not play out, isn’t quite the right word, but let them express themselves,” said Bloomberg.

President Barack Obama on Thursday defended the protesters, saying they expressed “the frustrations that the American people feel. People are frustrated and the protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works.”

    I heard someone last night comparing these protesters to the tea party, like they actually support the tea party in some way. I thought Ok, you trash the tea party groups at every turn, calling them racist, hateful and crazy, but then when it’s convenient to your argument, you compare the protesters to them. How does that make sense?

    Clearly, the tea party rallies are NOTHING like these OWS protests. I tried pointing this out to a blog full of liberals, and what did they do? Pulled TWO examples tea party protesters breaking the law. Two. Out of thousands of tea party rallies over 2 years, you give me TWO examples of “bad” protesters. Meanwhile, they have absolutely nothing to say about the 800+ protesters that have been arrested in the last 2-3 weeks, the drug use, the nasty conditions they’re leaving behind them…shall I go on? I brought the conversation back to that point every time they tried to trash the tea party. They finally quit responding to me. How can they possibly justify this behavior?

    What amazes me, though it shouldn’t at this point, is the way they’re being praised by the likes of Pelosi and some other Dems. It’s embarrassing. I wouldn’t go near that situation with a 50 foot pole, if I were in Congress. Those people are toxic….in more ways than one.

    If Obama believes that this anarchist mob is a refletion of the frustration tha Americans feel, he is even more out of tough than I could have imagined.
