OWS: Everybody loves a parade...


... well, almost everybody.

Let's see. Rape. Check. Assault. Check. TB, head lice and STDs. Check. Hmmmm.... what's missing?

Oh, but of course. Who's up for terrorizing young school children?

OWS has now hit for the anti-social/aberrant behavior cycle:

They were caught in the middle of madness.

Some grade school students were forced to walk a gauntlet of screaming “Occupy Wall Street” protesters just to get to school on Thursday.

It was a wild day in lower Manhattan for most everyone involved, including elementary school children who had to brave the mayhem just to get to class on the other side of Wall Street.

n the middle of thousands of protestors yelling and chanting — some kicking and screaming – CBS 2’s Emily Smith found little school kids trying to get to class. Nervous parents led them through the barriers on Wall Street. The NYPD helped funnel the children, anything to ease their fears while some protestors chanted “follow those kids!”

“These guys are terrorists, yelling at little kids,” one father said.

“For them it’s horrible. They’re afraid of all the crowds. We’re not even able to get through. They’re just, he’s … very afraid now,” a mother added.

One protester followed a father and his little daughter all the way down the block. As the school day ended just after 3 p.m. children trickled out of Leman Manhattan Prep on Broad Street. Smith heard a 4-year-old boy telling his mom he was scared. He told Smith it looked like a parade.

“There was a parade. It was scary — crowded with school,” the boy said.


On a lighter note, enjoy The Daily Show's absolutely priceless and spot-on takedown of the OWS movement.

"OK, does the drum circle know we're all here, now?"

What makes this particularly rich is the fact that we imagine quite a few of these Obamaville squatters are big fans of Stewart and The Daily Show. Hey, isn't Stewart just speaking truth to power?

And we hoped you appreciated the redistribution for thee but not for me attitude demonstrated by the one gentlemen with the laptop. Yeah, everybody may be hacked off at the bailouts and subsidies for corporate interests but the redistributionist/involuntary confiscation of property-as-solution remains the unbridgeable gap between OWS and the tea party.
