They Seriously Need to Go Home

Good news: OWS sets up women-only tent to help cut down on rapes
by “Allahpundit” @ HotAir

This can’t be repeated enough: With a few exceptions, foremost among them the New York Post, the coverage of OWS protests compared to the coverage of tea-party protests is the worst media double standard in recent history… We began the year with tea-party pols being smeared as killers over a shooting they had nothing to do with and we end it with actual rapes being shrugged off by the press because they’re bad PR for a movement they support. Disgrace.

Of course, these reported sexual assaults are merely alleged at this point, but still: If the women at OWS feel that their bodily integrity is being threatened to the point that they need to set aside a “women only” tent, that’s a sign that there’s something seriously wrong with this protest. And personally, I think it’s high time that New York City finally take down the tents and kick these people out. Yes — we all have a right under the First Amendment to assemble and express our grievances, but that does not include squatting on what is in fact private property for weeks on end. We get it. You’re pissed off. Message received. Now get a life, hippies, and go home.

  1. A listing of the ugly sex-related headlines from OWS and its' sister protests around the country:

    “Madison Protest Has Permit Yanked Due to Public Wanking”

    “Two Rapes Unreported in Zuchotti Park”

    “Sexual Assault Results in Two Arrests [Oakland]”

    “OWS Organizers Say Sex Crimes 'Handled Internally'”

    “Cleveland Protest Raided After 911 Call Involving Sex Crime”

    Google around…you'll find all of those and more.

    Of course, the great thing about this is that we can see exactly how progressives would prefer to run the country if they had a chance. They are writing their own laws (informally, of course) and ignoring the law of the land, so we can see exactly how their commune works on a larger scale now. They would protect women by…um…taking blankets away from sex offenders. They would resolve property disputes with fist fights cheered on by civic organizers. They would make it illegal to run a corporation and the penalty for daring to try would be vandalism or threats of physical violence. Yep…sign me up for that.
