Protesters doing more harm than good
Letter to editor

Editor, President Barack Obama, the Democrats and the liberal media have endorsed and encouraged the protesters currently polluting New York City and elsewhere. They are trying to compare the dirty mobs protesting Wall Street to the Tea Party rallies, which are civil and leave their venues all cleaned up. The minority leader of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, is proud of the rent-a-mobs, the dirty masses of hippies and union thugs trashing the streets as they broadcast their hatred of capitalism and America. They could be called the BEA party, as in “Bathed Enough Already.”
Several hundred protesters have been arrested for committing crimes while raging in New York City. Most of the protesters I’ve seen interviewed on television have given no coherent answer when asked what specifically they are protesting for or against, but they are mad as hell about something.
The Tea Party is the “Taxed Enough Already” party. No Tea Party rally has resulted in the arrest of any attendee. Unlike the angry liberal (or worse) mobs, they respect the law and the land. The Tea Party is a grassroots movement of mostly conservative people who believe in limits on our federal government, cutting government spending and lowering taxes. Their strategy is to convince people to vote for fiscally responsible politicians only.
It just turns out that there are no fiscally responsible Democrats in our federal government. The left’s endorsement of the lawless protesting is an attempt to get Obama and the Democrats re-elected by blaming George W. Bush and Republicans for all the economic destruction forced upon us by Obama and the Democrats.
What will the Democrats say when their soulmates start flipping police cars and setting buildings on fire?
