Forum Post: 'Occupier' (Not a Tea Partier) Throws Smoke Bomb Over White House Fence....

Posted 2 years ago on Jan. 19, 2012, 11:33 a.m. EST by headlesscross (67)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

An apparent smoke bomb was thrown over the fence of the White House as hundreds of Occupy protesters massed outside the gates.

The crowds were dispersed Tuesday night and the White House was all clear. U.S. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie says there were no arrests in the incident.

The Obamas were at dinner celebrating Michelle Obama's birthday, but they have since returned to the White House without difficulty.

The tense scene outside the White House follows an earlier protest on the West Lawn of the Capitol, in which several hundred protesters affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement decried the influence of corporate money in politics and voice myriad other grievances.

Organizers had touted the rally, known as Occupy Congress, as the largest national gathering of Occupy protesters to date and secured a permit that would have allowed up to 10,000 people to participate. By mid-afternoon, the protest appeared to have fallen far short of those goals

no one should have thrown anything

that was stupid. A great way to tar the whole movement as violent, and unAmerican.

[-] 5 points by beautifulworld (21406) 2 years ago

OWS supports peaceful protests only. Any violent acts are not condoned by the movement.

[-] -1 points by justhefacts (1275) 2 years ago

They aren't condemned by the movement either.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (21406) 2 years ago

If not, they should be.

[-] -1 points by justhefacts (1275) 2 years ago

I agree, they should be. But they aren't.

[-] -2 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

That's PR talk. Exactly like the supposedly evil corporations that you are allegedly protesting against. Or even like our government which supports democracy in every place other than Saudi Arabia. You guys are hypocrites and that is well established. Sad part is, you fools don't even know it.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (21406) 2 years ago

Shouldn't you be at work, smartcapitalist? What you guys do is you put out propaganda over and over again in an attempt to besmirch the movement.

[-] -1 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

The bailout was fine it is what the corps did with the bail out that was not fine so lets get the story straight and not go off on a misinforming the people tyranny rant.....The problem is what the corrupt do with the money that was given to them to help the people that worked at these corps to help to keep them from going under,,and those who did not do right with these bailouts should be persecuted by our judicial system but of course the corruption runs deeper than corp...The best way to hit Corp is to get at their offshore banks where they have this money..and get it back..and a good place to start is to call martial law..and is that what we want? Get informed not disinformed...This info may help u decide better http://occupytogether.com/forum/discussion/2170/monetary-system-and-todays-crisis..

[-] 1 points by BannedForTruth (233) from Christiana, TN 2 years ago

Who cares it was symbolic and peaceful? It goes to show that Occupy for a large part does not support Obama!!! Hear that ZenBoT?

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Obama is a fraud. I find it ironic for anyone in OWS to love Obama. Considering he supported the bailouts full swing and his administration is full of Wall Street execs, not to forget his new campaign guy is a Wall Street lobbyist. The Obama lovers in OWS seem to forget the whole saying "Banks got bailed out, we got sold out." Yeah well Obama supported bailing the banks out and selling the people out.

[-] 2 points by Courtney (111) from New York, NY 2 years ago

seriously. His new Chief of Staff is a former Citi and JP Morgan executive, who profited from credit-default swaps and the mortgage-backed securities crisis.

[-] 0 points by Kirby (104) 2 years ago

No shit. True believers on this sight have the blinders on. Obama is flopping around in bed with these corporate scum like it was his wedding night. What a fake.

[-] 0 points by freakyfriday (179) 2 years ago

Symbolic but dangerous! It could have ended badly....good thing this is America. I have been known to be stupid with fireworks, but that move takes the cake.

Will also bet they have the face of thrower on vid and are now running it through mutliple db's to find the guy/girl. Not sure what the charges will be. but sure they will be a doozie.

Not a great PR move.

[-] -2 points by capella (199) 2 years ago

according to you reasoning you can tell a persons' net worth by the car they drive. you're dumber than dumb. stupider than stupid.
not everyone is concerned with having a new or expensive car.

[-] 1 points by zoom6000 (430) from St Petersburg, FL 2 years ago

Shat the F%%up how many rich people drive old truck or car and they almost can make it home or not you are the king of the stupid

[-] -1 points by capella (199) 2 years ago

there are people who are concerned with how they appear to the world and drive expensive cars that they can barely afford. there are more people that are not concerned with pretense and drive a vehicle that gets them from point A to point B. and they have very healthy bank accounts.

[-] 1 points by zoom6000 (430) from St Petersburg, FL 2 years ago

yes i understand that very very very well ,but when you see old beat up trucks and cars with red neck driver?look if you do not like obama that dandy with me but please do not vote for either party and do not watch fox .,try to get your information from other source like rt.com bbc.co.uk aljazeera.com did i say aljazeera i hope did not offend you

Want prospective go around asking people how our country is doing? America is in bad shape almost everyone i talk to agrees in one way or another.

[-] -3 points by headlesscross (67) 2 years ago

Obamabots are in denial about the condition of the country nobody else is.

What's your point?

Are you voting again for Obama?

[+] -4 points by BannedForTruth (233) from Christiana, TN 2 years ago

Ron PauI 2012 I never voted Obama.

[-] 0 points by headlesscross (67) 2 years ago

Paul ain't going to be able to win against Obama.

Ever wonder why the MSM isn't trying to destroy RP like they did with Perry,Palin and now with Newt and Mitt? If Paul was perceived to be a threat to Obama he would be on the chopping block as well and he isn't by the MSM. This fact alone should inform anybody that RP isn't a factor.

[-] 2 points by PandoraK (1678) 2 years ago

Hmmm, to presume that anyone (MSM) was trying to destroy Perry and Palin is a clear lack of information. Perry and Palin did a fine job of destruction all by themselves.

Newt and Mitt? They are doing a fine job of it also.

[-] 0 points by headlesscross (67) 2 years ago

" to presume that anyone (MSM) was trying to destroy Perry and Palin is a clear lack of information."

Really? And what lack of information might that be?

Hmmmm,the non-stop Palin bashing,hacked emails,SNL Fey,the constant rude,disgusting, despicable remarks in the MSM,Trig bashing,google "Palin bashing",the books,Pig Maher, the list is endless much like your stupendous ignorance.

Mr. P can't even win against Romney.

Mr. P is the perennial loser.

Ya got that right. But, we knew in the beginning that he was going down.

And he isn't going to run again. :D

[-] 0 points by BannedForTruth (233) from Christiana, TN 2 years ago

The media is not trying to destroy him they are ignoring him and in effect censoring him. Ron PauI is doing amazing and closing in on first and in all polling Ron PauI is the only one that can defeat Obama. 3ed in Iowa and 2nd in NH very much a factor.

[-] 0 points by headlesscross (67) 2 years ago

" in effect censoring him"

Thanks for making my point. RP is not going to make it.

If Obama wins it will be RP's fault and all of you closed minded Discipaules.

He is just a spoiler and robber of Republican votes.

[-] 0 points by BannedForTruth (233) from Christiana, TN 2 years ago

Mind wash media has got you. So how does he get 3ed in IA 2nd in NH and not stand a chance. Get real.

[-] 0 points by headlesscross (67) 2 years ago

" 3ed in IA 2nd in NH"

If that's all you're pinning your hopes on,that's too bad.

He is the Ross Perot of our day. Even the same initials.
