Skip to comments.Occupy's Descent Into Mobbery Threatens Democracy
Posted on 05/02/2012 2:13:20 PM PDT by IBD editorial writer
The Left: After a day of mayhem, Occupy protesters have shown themselves to be little more than a dangerous mob. Democrats coddle them even as their outrages escalate. Criminal behavior has no place in a democracy.
After turning New York and other cities' public parks into open sewers with their extended camp-outs last year, the left-wing protestors of Occupy had little more to do than look for ways to remain relevant after public sentiment turned on them, crowds thinned and donations dried up.
By descending into a mob that is the antithesis of democracy, they found one.
May Day arrived and suddenly Occupy decided the holiday of the international left was its ticket to getting names in the news again.
But instead of peacefully assembling to present their dog's breakfast of causes from hating capitalism, to amnesty for illegal aliens, to halting foreclosures they descended into violence and criminality that can only mean worse to come.

They are a hideous bunch, no doubt about that.
It sure grates on my nerves, though. when the writer keeps calling America a “democracy”.
“Criminal behavior has no place in a democracy.”
James Madison would differ with you. Democracy Breeds Criminal Behavior. Criminal Behavior is the Only thing Democracy is good for.
See Federalist #10.
“Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”
The fact that we’ve descended into a Democracy is how these Occupy morons come to view Their right to riot as something they’re somehow entitled to.
Very true & the Republican party is silent on these communist agitators being run from the White House being more interested in stopping any & all influence of the TEA Party. I swear I truly think that the GOP elites have decided that being liked by the communists in the Democrat party is more important than preserving freedom & the Constitution .
Take, make and break. Take names, make arrests, and break heads.
