Obama’s #OccupyDC Victim Speaks Out: ‘I Went Down Those Stairs Because I Was Pushed’
Breitbart TV ^ | November 7, 2011 | Breitbart-citizen journalist

Posted on 11/07/2011 5:38:28 AM PST by penelopesire

Video at link. Other reports that the DC police did nothing to help.

The woman, 78, revealed that she rode a bus for 11 hours from Detroit to attend the conference. Truly, she must be apart of the evil 1%.

I hope my fellow FReepers will join me this morning in calling the DC Chief of Police and the Mayor to lodge as many formal complaints as we can. Time to stand up to this collusion between the democrat politicians, the thugs and the SEIU police. Attacking a private conservative gathering, pushing little old ladies down stairs,blocking traffic and threatening violence cannot be tolerated.

If they want a fight...we will most certainly give them one.

I saw a video from this incident. Made me want to wade into DC’s ‘99%’ with a baseball bat.

Their objective is to create a disturbance. They have the Obama administration, thus the Federal Government every bit on their side as do the NBP. It’s up to the States, and the local governments to handle this, and stop their crap.

Watch for the Obama Administration to then charge States, and locals with Civil Rights violations if they do attempt to stop OWS, and take authoritive action.

Last night I was so furious that I wanted to pump the little fools full of lead, but this morning my cooler side has returned. We need to stand up to this assualt through legal and formal means.The commie powers behind this whole thing want violence.Let’s make sure that when it starts..that it is clear exactly who started it.

Not to say that if we are threatened by thugs like this in the future that we have to just ‘take it’. We can and will defend our life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If these people threatened me or my family...they are going to get hurt.

A week or two ago, I had a long distance telephone conversation with a city councilman’s aide in Atlanta, warning him that things were going to get out of hand...and sure enough, they have. Obama has turned this country into a hellish nightmare in record time and he is just getting started.

I entirely sympathize and I think most Americans would agree. I was so enraged when I saw it that I could barely sleep that night.

Note that we both said “I saw this video...” - and we sure didn’t see it on your nightly news or in the press. The media is cooperating with Obama 100% in suppressing news of the OWS attacks, which has the effect of isolating the victims and victim cities, letting OWS escalate freely, and preventing a groundswell of opposition from developing among ordinary Americans.

Absolutely a critical component in countering this is to make sure they never have a moment where they are not being filmed, and to make sure video of their antics is always posted and available for view from multiple offshore video hosts.

The light of day.

Dittos! I can assure you that Mark Levin will be talking about this tonight on his show because he was there giving a speech. I love the ‘Mama Grizzly’ shouting at the punks to stay away from her kids in the other video at the Daily Caller. It looked like her husband actually pulled her back by the hair of her head just trying to get away alive with his family. I had to laugh because my husband probably would have done the same thing to me...lol. I was thinking..so this is what a Mama Grizzly looks like!

Does D.C have law covering crimes against the elderly.

In TX if they had done that to those ladies, they could get 10 years in prison. (60+)

since these crimes were perpetrated in front of the POLICE there shouldn’t be any doubt.

Exactly! The fact that the lamestream media isn’t touching any of this is so infruriating. If it were Tea Partiers doing this (which obviously would never happen) it would be on a nonstop loop on the worthless networks and cable news channels.

And whose bright idea was this classification, anyway?

Yes, they were desperate to make the Tea Party look bad (I was in DC, and while there was booing at the name of certain congresscritters, that was the extent of it).

They were probably frustrated because we wouldn’t oblige.

They aren’t 99% of anything..it’s all a well known commie agitator tactic. ‘Perception’ is everything. Hitler used the same 99% meme and commie/fascist regimes have used it for decades to excuse everything from mass murder to election ‘results’.

I know how you felt, I felt, still feel the same way. For some reason, this video really infuriated me...disturbing on so many levels and for so many reasons. I’ve watched it several times, thought about it off and on all day yesterday, last night and woke up thinking about it this morning.

I’m not sure what disgusts me the most, the protestors or the lackadaisical attitude of the cops. I don’t understand why those aholes weren’t arrested for banging on the door. I can assure you if a group of people in my county did what they did, banging on the doors, trying to stop people from leaving, etc. they would have been told to take a hike and if they didn’t they would have been arrested. Knocking people down like that, no way in hell, they would have been arrested.

That is the part that pisses me off the most. We know those people are whacks but the cops there seem to be nothing more than Ofaggo’s brown shirts. Also the woman that was knocked down and hurt, it was obvious those cops really didn’t care, just going through the motions for the cameras. Is that what America has become. How sad. We let it go too far, we should have stopped it years ago, I’m not sure we can ever get it back.

Thanks for the info, I am also going to call all three of my representitives (who unfortunately are all Dems - I live in a liberal state.) Usually I just leave a comment, but today I am going to ask for a response. What are they going to do about it!?
I am also going to email all the media outlets, inlcuding Fox, and ask them why this is being kept from the public.
We have to constantly let our presence be known. That there are tax-paying, law abiding, citizens out here who are watching.

During the prolonged days of the 2000 post election decision, many freepers, and conservatives marched around the Governor's mansion in Austin, TX.

An eighty year old lady who was with her husband was knocked down by a 20 something, hippie wannabe type.

Even though the person who did it was identified to the police, the police did nothing. They just told the hippie wanabe to leave. The poor elderly woman was shaken, but not injured, thank goodness.

Seeing those poor senior citizen women knocked to the ground upset me more than anything. I just lost my mother on 911. She had fought cancer bravely for years, but fell in the hospital and broke her hip back in July and it was the beginning of the end. These punks could have just shortened those women’s lives with their thuggish antics!

It really pisses me off just thinking about it! Bast@#$@!

That’s exactly the plan - to provide an excuse for federal law enforcement and the military to “restore order” because the locals cannot.

I’m so sorry to hear about your mother and I think anyone that watches that video has to think that could have been their mother, grandmother, sister, friend, relative....even though we don’t know the 2 women in the video, it was heartbreaking to see it happen. The thing is, had the police done their job it should never have happened. They should have made those cretins stay away from the doors they were pounding on and cleared the way for people entering and exiting. I blame the police just as much as the low lifes that did it. I expect if from them, I do NOT expect law enforcement officers to NOT protect innocent people from animals like that.

First of all, they do not care about the women's lives. That being said, it is up to the males to protect the women.Thank God that I was not there because the D.C jail would have had one more occupant and hell would have had one more occupant.

I will gurantee you that if some sonofabitch deliberately pushed my mother down a flight of stairs, or for that matter just deliberately pushed her, before the clock struck 12 they would be in hell and I would be in jail.

If they had pushed my mother, they damned sure would have created one. The D.C. jail would probably had one more occupant, and for sure hell would have one more custmor. I have two brothers who feel the same way.

If you watch it closely it looks to me like several of the slugs were taken aback and afraid of mama grizzly. If they were afraid of her imagine if someone pulled .45 on them while they were assaulting them. It’s just a matter of time before they put their hands on someone that is carrying and then it’s SHTF time... or not. Wait until winter sets in and the weather gets really bad. I suspect they will all face away back to their parent’s basements.

Just got off the phone with the DC mayor’s office. Spoke with several people as they shuffled me around from person to person. My main question was where do these people have a permit to protest and does it give them the right to move about the entire city terrorizing private conservative functions and assaulting old ladies and pushing them down stairs?! They all tried to claim that it was not their responsibility..it was the ‘feds’? I gathered that the permits are pulled from the federal park service but I reminded the gentlman that it is the police’s responsibility to protect the citizens and enforce the laws of the city and country.

Gads..I am steamed! Calling the park police next and then the DC Chief of police. Will report back.

if then the local police say it is the "feds" responsibility , that means the feds told them to stand down, it makes Obama personally responsible because he is the cheif executive in charge

evidence exhibit A : Obama spent a lifetime devoted to being a "community organizer" which is an organizer of these Occupy type events

there is no plausible deniability

Occupy Capitalism is "Obama's War"

Obama has atared a "civil War" and attempted coup on the financial system with this sanctioning of the "Occupy" Movement

The first big communist push was made successful in the 1930's by deliberatly orchestrating the "Great Depression" which resulted in the New Deal and the Interstate commerce clause,

Obama is just phase II of attempted economic collapse and socialist takeover

IMHO

Bingo! I am on hold right now with the park police who issued the 4 month long ‘permit’. Next stop will be Salazar’s office because they direct and head up the park police through the Department Of Interior. This is top down..bottom up community organizing on steriods. Now park police are saying that it is the DC police’s responsibility to police the convention center where the women were assaulted and I was told that the protestors usually alert the police when they are going to ‘demonstrate’ on city property.
Bottom line..it a run around game with no-one accepting responsibility for the OCCUSCUM!

It would certainly be interesting to find out if the metro police were told that the demonic mob was headed to the convention center because the place should have been cordoned off and protected.

I called my reps and all the aides said that it was not their jurisdiction, of course. I pointed out that as a representative of the people, they could certainly make phone calls to local mayors and discuss their concerns, and the concerns of their constituents. Our local council is having a meeting next week, I plan on attending and voicing concerns then as well.
On the upside, I did see on the news today that DC police say the protesters are no longer acting peacfully and they will begin to take stronger steps! I wonder if they heard from some unhappy citizens?
