617.) “Judge me by the company I keep” Those were the words President Barack Obama while he was running for President in 2008. Those were the words of a man who started his career in the home of a known, unremorseful terrorist Bill Ayres, this from a who associates with George Sores a man who enjoys collapsing economies, this from a man who put men like Van Jones a radical leftest extremist, and many, many more. The reason I bring this up is due to events that took place in a New Hampshire Highschool on November 22nd, 2011. President Obama was giving a speech, but before he could dive into the depths of his speech, a rumbling from the crowd disrupted the Presidents Speech. It was not the heckling that comes from those who march under the Gasden Flag, and it was not the typical supportive cheer that the President is used to hearing, no instead it was the “Human Mic” of the Occupy Movement, “Mic check” was yelled this then lead to chanting “Mr. President, over 4,000 peaceful protesters have been arrested…” The protesters where cut off by the crowd who came to had come to hear President Obama speak. The crowd quickly overpowered the Occupy Protesters by shouting “Obama, Obama”, and of course “Yes we can!”.
President Obama, never lost his smile, he then said, “No, no, no — it’s okay”, fallowed by, ““I appreciate you guys making your point. Let me go ahead and make mine. I’ll listen to you. You listen to me” This seemed to calm the crowd down. President Obama then said, “Families like yours, young people like the ones here today — including the ones who were just chanting at me — you’re the reason that I ran for office in the first place” Really… they are the reason you ran for office in the first place. I don’t think President Obama would have said the same thing about the Tea Party… actually he didn’t he mocked them for “waving around tea bags”. This is just another in a long line of endorsments of the Occupy movement, a movement that thumbs the law, deficats on the streets, and disrupts the daily lives of innocent people.
I think President Obama is doing trying to do to the Occupy Movment, what he did to the Tea Party, manipulate its message to fit his agenda. He said, “So a lot of the folks who have been down in New York and all across the country, in the Occupy movement, there is a profound sense of frustration — (applause) — there is a profound sense of frustration about the fact that the essence of the American Dream — which is if you work hard, if you stick to it, that you can make it — feels like that’s slipping away.” Thats not really what, from what I have seen, the Occupy Protesters are protesting for. Some are calling for communism, which is the opposite of the American Dream, some are calling for fascism which like communism is the opposite of the American Dream. I know many in this movement are probably concerned citizens who are out to show their concern for their nation. But this movement has so many people who are out there looking for a free ride, trying to use this movement to plant the seeds of revolution. That is what I have seen, I may be wrong. But when I went to a Tea Party rally, if there was a racist, anti-semitic, or violent individual they were singled out and asked to leave. If they didn’t leave, they were fallowed by members of the group, who shouted that this person was not with us. I have not seen that in the Occupy Protesters. So either President Obama is oblivious to what happens at these OWS camps, He doesn’t care, or he knows but is trying to use this leftest movement to his advantage.
Now the quotes here do not, by themselves, justify a point. However, these quotes, and President Obama’s past actions with the Tea Party, do justify a point. He was never this friendly with the Tea Party, a lawful, peaceful, protest movement. Why is he so friendly with the OWS movement? As the President said, “Judge me by the company I keep.”
