Not All Occupiers throw party for suspected terrorist

Just the ones at Occupy Boston. Courtesy of the Boston Herald:

The downtown protest group Occupy Boston threw its proverbial doors open yesterday, and played host to supporters of accused terrorist Terak Mehanna, who are looking to raise awareness of the Sudbury man’s upcoming trial.

The Tarek Mehanna Support Committee came to Occupy Boston’s ever-evolving tent city on the Rose Kennedy Greenway to say Mehanna, a Muslim American pharmacist, is a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment.

The U.S. government says Mehanna, 28, provided “material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization,” and acted as a “media wing” for al-Qaeda.

Occupy Boston hosted the pro-Mehanna rally, but, officially, the leaderless group doesn’t have a position on the case.

Hey, it’s all good. Stopping corporate greed, helping out guys who want to blow up Americans, whatever. They don’t judge people who don’t make more money than they deem appropriate.

How about another Occupy Boston gem? Here’s a few of them outside the Federal Reserve of Boston. It’s a left-wing protest, so consider this a language warning:

It’s fun to yell bad words! And also it produces sociopolitical change and whatnot. Like the ’60s, except with smartphones and Axe Body Spray.
