MSNBC Analyst: You know what OWS needs? A Kent State moment

For those of you who don’t know what a ‘Kent State moment’ is, here is Wikipedia’s quick summary:

The Kent State shootings — also known as the May 4 massacre or, frequently, the Kent State massacre — occurred at Kent State University in the city of Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of unarmed college students by members of the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4, 1970. The guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.

Some of the students who were shot had been protesting against the American invasion of Cambodia, which President Richard Nixon announced in a television address on April 30. Other students who were shot had been walking nearby or observing the protest from a distance.

Now that we have that squared away, heeeeeeeere’s Donny!

  1. The left doesn’t want violence, call for insidious violence, nah, there just peace loving people. What a “joke”. Here’s your prime example from NBC’s Deutsch calling for people to be shot.

  2. It seems like the world has gone crazy. Socialists, Commies and crazy leftists like this man seem to be crawling out of the woodwork. What happened to our wonderful America, land of the free, home of the brave?

  3. so the LSM helps plant the ‘seed’ for the OWS ‘revolution’ to move fwd…just like Breitbart noted today with the plans of activist Beka …yep, I’m wondering what #4 is??..but if they pull out their ‘old activist playbook’ from the Weathermen, I’m sure they’ll use it as ‘Beka’ notes later. Unless their ‘demands’ are met y’know…free stuff all around, $20 wage, ‘behead bankers’ as Roseanne said, etc. The longer this lil flame smolders, the better chance of a real wildfire. Pray. Keep your powder dry. Stay one step ahead.

  4. Quick, bring the white coats with long arms for the pmsnbc crew, they are officially certifiable as of this idiocy, done zip zilch nada for brains.

  5. Did Donny forget the people got killed at Kent State?

    According to GB the missing piece of what the leftists have in store for us cannot be implemented w/out violence.

    Some people think that obama is using the leftists so that right before the election he can call marshall law under the guise of protecting the American people from his thugs.

  6. It looks like there are some ‘familiar’ faces behind the ‘OWS’ movement, the re-branded ACORN for one among others, but the “genesis” seems to be a Vancouver, BC based firm called Adbusters, run by one Kalle Lasn who owns the domain name Occupywallstreet dot org, his bio is here, Lasn also has ties to ACORN.

    1. IMO anyone with ties to ACORN is a squirrel 🙂

      Ok, I couldn’t help it. Sioux me. Just leave my scalp intact.

  7. Donny Deutsch was comparing Cain’s 999 focused marketing approach of his tax plan to the killing of four peaceful students at Kent State in 1970 and then said that is what the Occupy movement needs.

    No, he was not!

    He was softening his remarks by using Cain’s 999 marketing message. “What this movement needs…” is an incident like Kent State.

    His message is that the Occupy Wall Street movement needs to have some of their peaceful protesters killed in order for the movement to solidify. This is Mr. Deutsch’s advice as a successful marketer.

    Mika Brzezinski picks up on what Donny is really saying and says, “You know for a guy who eats Fruit Loops in the morning, you’re really smart.” She says this after she blows out a deep breathe, looking at him askance and then pushes an off-camera object at him. She was not at all pleased with his advice for the Occupy movement.

    Have no idea what she meant by her remark but her body language was clear…she was pissed. It would have made more sense to me if she had said, “you’re not smart”. Because it was one of the stupidest things I have ever heard.

  8. Seems like they’re trying to instigate something…so that they can then blame it on the Tea Party

  9. Hey Donnie how about your volunteering. Go on down and see if you can’t get shot. Vounteerism is always appreciated.

  10. Kent State was the tipping point for me and many. I was enrolled at a very conservative college campus at the time where we did very little protesting. Engineering study really didn’t leave much free time. Upon hearing the news, I distinctly remember thinking, well if this is true, then I will get involved. “Tin soldiers and Nixon coming. We’re finally on our own…..Four dead in Ohio”

  11. Is there not a law against inciting violence, riots, murders? Should the local District Attorney not be calling for Herr Deutsch’s arrest and indictment? Would love to see him frog-marched off the set in handcuffs.

  12. He’s one of those crazy racist violent tea partiers isn’t he? That is one of the most outrageous comments I’ve heard. Ends justify the means to those nutjobs.

  13. This proves that democRATS are beyond crazy and hopelessly confused

    All they think about is racism and violence

    “if you can’t win the debate – make it personal” is their motto

  14. The left wing media here is advocating that a martyr give his life, in order to legitimize the “occupy” cause. That’s just sick. He’s saying, in effect, the “occupy” cause is illegitimate, immature, without purpose… unless someone dies for the cause… literally sheds blood, like at Kent State.

    He’s almost begging some young deluded protester out there to get himself shot, somehow, or run over by a car, or beaten up, in order to advance the cause… now, how sick and twisted has this pro-Obama, pro-socialist, pro-ratings media culture become when it blatantly advocates the death of individuals in order to promote Obama’s socialist message. Are there morals anymore in this country? Do leftists have any human conscience left whatsoever?

    Bigger question… will there emerge any articulated purpose behind these “occupy” protests, even WITH a martyr? This is all theater of the absurd, Obama style. The “occupy” cause better hope to start occupying indoor facilities… winter is here.

    1. Yep, I wonder where Bloomberg will house them all once the snow flies.

      Perhaps they could institute an adopt-an-ass program. Any takers?

  15. How about all these celebs and talking heads that are advocating violence put there money where their mouth is and lead the way!

    1. I’m sure they will, right after the celebs advocating taxes the rich put their money where their mouth is… and give it all to the government.

      (Mind you, they are often the same celebs)

    2. I don’t see them down there passing out Benjamins either, “Where’s the support? WAH< WAH…….

  16. I lived through the sixties and I remember the Kent State Massacre as it was called. The sixties produced 3 assassinations of major political and social leaders: JFK, RFK and MLK. By 1968 I thought the country would collapse into absolute chaos. Nixon ended the draft and the protests literally vanished overnight.

    Today we have a president who WANTS the collapse of the system so he can grab power and establish his Marxist Utopia. Donny looks at life as one big video game for his entertainment. He will retreat to his mansion and we will be left to clean up the mess. Donny is a fool.

    1. You are absolutely right about the sixties. It was more about the draft than anything else. But when the majority of the protesters were not really against the USA the radicals continued their violent anti government activities with limited followers. Think Bill Ayers and his wife. But most of the violence was just stupid which was when I had had enough. Once when an Otis Redding concert was cancelled due to Otis being ill the attendee who had gathered for the concert took the cancellation as an excuse to break windows and set fires in town. The fires burned for several days causing major damage.

  17. So he wants to see some young person lying dead on the pavement with all his blood running down the sidewalk from a massive head wound?

    If this video clip accomplishes anything it should be to let the protesters know that Soros, the Unions, and the MSM consider them nothing more than props to be used and then disposed of.

  18. Cabrini Green riots come to mind and if I remember correctly the entire nation was experiencing social upheaval prior to Kent State. The OWS protesters are trying to incite a remake of the late sixties early seventies and the spark for that is being orchestrated by the current anarchists surrounding Obama.

    1. It didn’t help Jimmy Carter either 🙂

      Once “Happy Days are here again”, I’m going on the road with Potsie Webber.
      A little song, a little dance. Soldout venues!

      Oh yeah!

        1. I sent RS a “tip” message about it earlier today, but didn’t want to step on his toes. This is his blog and I want to respect that.

          1. I ran a blog at one time and I can tell you from my perspective that you handled it perfectly…..I don’t want to speak for RS, but I would be willing to bet his toes are just fine.

          2. I can’t imagine how he keeps up so well with current events, so yes, I respect this blog and his decisions to post whatever he chooses.

  19. I was on Kent State’s campus that day after flying from NY to see my fiance and soon to be wife. It was a very difficult time for our country. I was back from RVN for a little over a year…..and still adjusting. Actually, I’m still adjusting….

    The speaker’s comparative comment is specious, vacuous, unnecessary and pointless.

    What a fricken’ A-hole!

    That’s as close to cursing within this pages that I will ever do! Hope it’s okay, RS.

    1. I got back from RVN in April 1969 the 13 months there the majority of the letters I sent home were related to the state of our riot torn country. I deliberately went to Gitmo for the next year to avoid possibly doing riot control on our soil. I sincerely share your empathy.

  20. Deutsch compassion on parade. What a lovely sentiment.

    Maybe we need a visual aid/ad showing a rich banker pushing junior off a cliff. He could be riding a Big Wheel or something. If there were such a thing as a mental wheelchair, that would also work.

    Seriously though, it sounds like he is hanging his hopes on a Syrian type of response from the authorities, huh?

    Sprechen sie Deutsch? Nein!

  21. Did I hear him correctly, did Donny say he wants a Kent State moment that has nothing do do with the Kent State moment?

    1. Deutsch is calling for violence in the streets, for some college student to be shot. Hope Obama is proud of what damage he has done to this country.

      1. The protestors are hoping they get removed by force so the police can be made to look like the oppressors. Silly times we live in, isnt it?
