How many Tea Parties have been broken up with tear gas and rubber bullets?

It’s a lot, right? At least, what… one?

No? Zero?

Well, last night Occupy Oakland showed ’em how it’s done. (WARNING: Adult language from overgrown children)

They’re chanting “Our world! Our world!” Fortunately for the rest of us, they’re wrong.

Just something to remember the next time one of our moral, ethical, and intellectual superiors on the left calls you “terrorist” and other such epithets. Words are weapons when they threaten the left, and defying the cops until they have to break out the riot gear is just a peaceful demonstration of free speech as long as it’s convenient for the left. They are abject hypocrites, and it’s actually kind of a relief that they’ve stopped even bothering to hide it.

P.S. Surprise, surprise:

The former New York office for ACORN, the disbanded community activist group, is playing a key role in the self-proclaimed “leaderless” Occupy Wall Street movement, organizing “guerrilla” protest events and hiring door-to-door canvassers to collect money under the banner of various causes while spending it on protest-related activities, sources tell FoxNews.com.

The former director of New York ACORN, Jon Kest, and his top aides are now busy working at protest events for New York Communities for Change (NYCC). That organization was created in late 2009 when some ACORN offices disbanded and reorganized under new names after undercover video exposes prompted Congress to cut off federal funds.

NYCC’s connection to ACORN isn’t a tenuous one: It works from the former ACORN offices in Brooklyn, uses old ACORN office stationery, employs much of the old ACORN staff and, according to several sources, engages in some of the old organization’s controversial techniques to raise money, interest and awareness for the protests.

Sources said NYCC has hired about 100 former ACORN-affiliated staff members from other cities – paying some of them $100 a day – to attend and support Occupy Wall Street. Dozens of New York homeless people recruited from shelters are also being paid to support the protests, at the rate of $10 an hour, the sources said.

Hey… at least it’s a job!
