Occupiers Assault Pro-Lifers
For the third time in a week radicals from the Occupy Wall Street crowd have disrupted pro-life events. If they are so concerned about income inequality, why are they focusing their anger and vitriol on pro-life demonstrations?
According to LifeSiteNews.com, Occupiers disrupted a March for Youth rally in Washington, D.C., last weekend, a prayer vigil outside of the Supreme Court last Monday and a pro-life rally in Rhode Island last Thursday. At the Rhode Island rally, the radicals threw condoms on Catholic students and shouted down a priest as he attempted to give the benediction.
Barth Bracey, executive director of Rhode Island Right to Life, attempted to contact someone in leadership at the national Occupy Wall Street headquarters. They were less than helpful. Bracey told LifeSiteNews.com:
"You can't have a reasoned conversation with these people. They simply try to taunt you. They're smug, snarky, arrogant. You won't get a straight answer. Their actions have made it loud and clear, whatever else they are, they are pro-abortion -- and they are willing to attack the pro-life movement."
Yesterday we provided more evidence of the anti-Semitic bigotry that infests the Occupy Wall Street movement. But it is increasingly clear that these radicals are not just against Wall Street greed and corruption. They are against traditional American values, including free enterprise and free speech. They are anti-Western Civilization.
Two headlines today caught my attention. Here's the first headline followed by a brief excerpt:
"O'Malley Talks About Applying Sales Tax To Gas -- Maryland's gas prices could soon be going sky high. The governor [a liberal Democrat] has recommended applying sales tax to gas, and it could pump up prices more than 20 cents a gallon."
Now here's the second headline followed by a brief excerpt:
"Emboldened GOP Wants To Abolish State Income Taxes -- A year after Republicans swept into office across the country, many have trained their sights on what has long been a fiscal conservative's dream: the steep reduction or even outright elimination of state income taxes."
Remember this, my friends, when you go into the voting booth in 280 days: Democrats are always trying to raise your taxes. Republicans want to cut taxes.
Our Thin-Skinned President
Beneath Barack Obama's well-cultivated image as a supernaturally cool, calm and collected president lies a very different reality: an irritable, hyper-sensitive and bitter man who's quick to attack those who question him or his agenda. The idea of Obama as an above-the-fray figure who can unite the country has been shattered by three years of a president who seems more passionate about the opinions of his critics than about governing the country.
