Occupy DC violent protests at Tea Party event video roundup

Last night at the Defending the Dream Summit in Washington DC, Occupy DC showed up and things got violent as people tried to break into the facility. Videos have been going around this morning and I wanted to aggregate them into once place to give you a good idea of what really happened last night, since the media seems fairly mum.

**************************************

CONTENT WARNING: LANGUAGE

**************************************

The first is by College Politico who was there to record protesters using their children to block the doors:

At the start of the scuffle the protesters had been able to get inside the convention center and set up a makeshift barrier. This barrier consisted of what appeared to be several large wood trash cans from the center, a large metal recycling bin from the center, the two small children sitting in their wagon, and several occupiers either sitting on the floor or standing up.

The security guards, which may have been assisted by police officers (I’m not sure), then began moving the trash cans and forcing back the protesters. At first only about 5 or 6 protesters resisted the security guards while the rest filmed everything but as they forcibly pushed the protesters and the children’s wagon out of the doorway other protesters became incensed. At that point several other occupiers began screaming and pushing back against the security guards.

***



The Daily Caller was also there to record events. It was nothing even close to peaceful:

Occupy DC protesters tried to force entry into the Washington Convention Center on Friday, where Americans for Prosperity is hosting their “Defending the American Dream Summit.” The protesters also formed roadblocks, surrounding the convention center and only allowing non-luxury cars to pass.

***

Kerry Pickett from the Washington Times was also there with video camera running:

Occupy DC protesters attempted to bust into the Washington DC Convention Center on Friday night, where an Americans for Prosperity dinner was taking place. Protesters aimed their ire at AFP donors Charles and David Koch throughout the night. Interestingly, David walked through the crowd of protesters with friends and associates of his and went completely unnoticed by the Occupy DC crowd. I captured video of a throng of protesters trying to muscle past security at the DC Convention Center to no avail.

***

All of this happened right in the nation’s capital, Washington DC. There’s absolutely no reason for this not to be on a part of every news hour in the 24/7 news cycle. But alas, it’s not the Tea Party behaving badly so why would they want to run it?

UPDATE: Here is one from Hotair of a woman in a wheelchair that couldn’t leave because of the protesters:

I am very impressed with the woman in the wheelchair. She had every right to be pissed off (possibly was inside) but was very calm and serene in spite of her rights and freedoms being denied by a mod.

This is in response to the very last video. Sadly that is what democracy looks like. “Democracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man’s life or property or reputation will be secure…” -John Adams

We have a representative republic if we can keep it. And the sad thing is even those who support the vision of the founders don’t seem to know that.

The lady in the wheel chair said it best. “Mob rule”. This is exactly like how the Central Park rapists got away with gang raping a lady. They were spurred on by each other to do something that they may have never done alone. They were emboldened by the numbers.

There’s only so much of this I can take without my automatic body responses becoming a problem. Like anger. Like having the need to bust some heads and I’m here and they’re not. I watched it with the sound off, and that helped a lot. In the second video, is one of the protestors actually waving a sign that says (in part) “I am a human being”? Couldn’t prove it by me. You use your tiny children as tools in the midst of a violent protest and you want me to respect you? Stick it where the sun don’t shine, creep. Those children should have been rescued from their parents by Child Protective Services. Those parents should have been introduced to the quaint Japanese custom of caning. Fingers that get shaken in faces should be seized and broken. People who try to force their way into a meeting to “demonstrate”… Read more »

If the protests and anarchy are successful we better be prepared: This is not an advertisment per se, I just thought it was relevent to the discussion. The point is due to the chaos and revolution in our country, citizens would be wise to learn about survival and protection. This is one of many excellent sources of information on the topic. David Morris Since 2008, “Survival Dave” has taught more than 10,000 people how to survive long term breakdowns in civil order in urban areas—without having to run away to a fully stocked rural retreat. His students range from lifelong Spec-Ops operators & paramedics to newlyweds & retirees just waking up to preparedness. They all share a common desire to “be the solution” when disasters happen rather than depending on government to save the day. He is the creator of the SurviveInPlace.com Urban Survival Course, the author of the Urban… Read more »

Jeez, I am getting sick in the stomach just watching this and I’m only on the second video!
This was not the america I’ve known when I was small child, and my parents certainly didn’t use me as a blockade. These guys are selfish bastards and their kids are more grown up than they are! I laughed out loud when the lady was complaining about the guy who ran over the protestors, REALLY?! JUST GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY, IDIOT!! If I didn’t know any better I would have thought this was a protest in Greece, Holy cow, i sure hope when we get our new president, these people would realize what blind fool they all are! (But I doubt they’ll recover from this)

Can I get a True Conservative candidate for President please ! …. Gingrich can’t be trusted because he’s a DC establishment guy and Cain is just a plant from the Left . Notice how the Tea party is being compared to with the Occupy Wall street Socialists ? Notice how the Tea Party is being more and more shunned by Republicans ? True Conservatives need to wake up …. this is all being cleverly played out by the RINO’S , MSM , and the Socialist Democrats .

This just occurred to me. Where did the name “Occupy…” come from? Is this not what the “palestinians” call Israelis? “They are occupiers!” I’ve heard them say it repeatedly. So, do the “palestinians” want us to experience what they “see” as “their land” under “the occupation”?

Wall Street is occupied territory. Oakland is occupied territory. The occupiers in this country are the radicals, and the young skulls full of mush, who know no better. The hard left, the socialists, the communists, (aka democrats and the Islamists) are taking their perceptions and facts, as they see them, and juxtapositioning those facts on us. To them, it might be brilliant. To us, it’s something else. Strange bedfellows. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

Guess what? The enemy of my friend is my enemy. The enemy of your friend is also my enemy.

“How ya’ll gonna twist this?” Really??? You are repeatedly videotaped surrounding expensive cars, scaring the occupants of the cars by beating on it and chanting protest chants at them. They’ve all seen the videos of the violence & people who allow themselves to be stopped and surrounded who’ve been dragged out of their cars and beaten by dozens of people. Kicked in the head and robbed. You better get used to it. I would run you over too. I’m not about to get “pulled over” by a bunch of violent punks, and wait to see what they’re planning to do with me. How about arresting protesters for taking away the liberties of American citizens? How about arresting protesters for keeping them from driving on public roadways and entering public and private buildings? I’m going to start carrying Bear Spray in the city. Enough of this bulls**t

I’m with the guy who stood in the window of his business in Oakland with his shotgun. As the terrorists came near he showed them he had the shotgun and racked it right in front of them.

They went away.

Having experienced the violence in the 60’s I suggest that this is what we have created with our “education system” that is controlled thru the governemnt and the unions. This is the 60’s on steriods and DRUGS! A brain is a terrible thing to waste.

The soros protesters bring us yet another example of good vs evil. And we all know who is who….

Persecution of good is happening all over the world and indeed is in America.

Example:

FAITH UNDER FIRE

Persecuted Christian? Don’t expect these pastors to speak up
Half don’t plan to mention martyrs – but 3 in 4 members say they want to know

thank you for coming right out and saying it..i have been hinting at it for a while…i just got lamb basted for a comment here about holding Churches partly to blame for the mess this country is in…i posed one question to the unhappy fellow before i would answer his question…and that is…Who was Jesus talking to when He made this statement…

Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

i said answer that and i will answer why i hold the church accountable for much of the problems here at home….

also i think we as a country have gotten comfortable in our churches…but are Uncomfortable with our relationship with Jesus…and there lies the problem…

Well planned and coordinated attack by the commie terrorist gangs – seiu, aflcio etc

They know how to use little kids as human shields.

So, how are they going to compare this riot to a Tea Party event that doesn’t have little kids abused as human shields or rioters trying to crash a commie organizational meeting of the obamessiah faithful.

We have to expect this. This is good vs evil. Evil always pushes the hardest because they are confused & used by someone above them. Good usially sits back because they know they are the right ones. Enough is enough,we need to show our strenght to these who want to destroy America. This is do or die people. Either obumma is out in 2012 or our country is no longer a free republic. There is no other answer. This is the dead line. We need to get offensive now & spread the word. Tomorrow is too late.

Where were the police arresting all of these fools? Where is the Mayor on this situation? Good grief, what a garbage dump that city truly is. I’ll stay here in my red state and my red city. We may have an immigration problem here, but most of my neighbors are normal. The OWS crowd that showed up here in Phoenix didn’t accomplish much and received little press. This is not New York, Oakland or D.C. Funny how cities like mine don’t have these freaks running rampant down our streets.
