Monday Morning Crib Sheet: Bill Maher Turns On OWS, Daily Kos Bullies Food Pantry
- Bill Maher tells Occupy Wall Street to "get a job," and says:
"As I watch them on the news now I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich. Like, you know what - get a job...Now it's just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution."

- Apparently, Hot Topic is all out of Che shirts, so a bored Daily Kos decides to spend its time bullying ... a food pantry:
I just got off of the phone with someone at Paul's Pantry (the third person I was connected to). We spoke for awhile, but ultimately it came down to a few things (1) he said that they have the right to refuse to send their truck anywhere; (2) he refuses to send their truck to an organization that "kills babies" and isn't supported by 90% of Paul's Pantry's donors; and (3) the office is more than willing to accept the donations if they are brought directly there. He seemed most uncomfortable with their truck being seen near Planned Parenthood's office because of the optics and feels that PP is trying to pick a fight since this has been their position for over 12 years. I told him to expect more calls. :).."
Let's shower this POS with our calls. I have left a message. So should all of you. Maybe this is a distraction, but much is at stake-a woman's right to choose. [my emphasis]
A group of progressives who don't donate to this charity found out that a food pantry would rather keep itself free of Planned Parenthood's politics, so they decide to bully the private entity. Hysterical progressives don't care that the charity may risk losing donations if their van is spotted at a Planned Parenthood. They don't offer to make up for the funds, either, and they fail to encourage readers to donate. What is their big contribution to society? Tantrums? They haven't done an ounce to serve others as Paul's Pantry yet these narcissistic space savers have the audacity to politicize everything from breast cancer to food for the needy. Keep it up, Daily Kos.
- Occupiers reportedly threw bricks at cops and urine ad media over the weekend. Protesters in NYC upped the ante:
In New York City, Occupy protesters allegedly urinated on a cross inside a Brooklyn church.
“An occupier peed inside the building and the pee came into contact with a cross,” wrote Rabbi Chaim Gruber in a note to the New York Post.
The Occupy Wall Street movement has a history of participants urinating and defecating in public.
The group has also been accused of desecrating West Park Presbyterian Church. The pastor ordered 60 protesters to leave the sanctuary after someone stole a bronze lid from the $12,500 baptismal font.
“It was like pissing on the 99 percent,” an angry Rev. Bob Brashear told the New York Post.
Since MMFA was so sensitive over Marines urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban members, we're positive that they will react with greater sensitivity to their MMFA-endorsed Occupy movement "urinating on the 1%" and throwing urine on living people who are no Taliban fighters. We will monitor this closely.
- NBC2 finds massive voter fraud in Florida:
A local Florida station invented an unprecedented way to check for voter fraud: jury excusal forms. NBC2 compiled a list of jury excusals based on not being a citizen of the United States and compared it to a list of registered voters in two counties. They discovered almost 100 illegally registered voters, many of whom had voted multiple times. "I vote every year," one woman told NBC2, despite the fact that she is not a US citizen. The woman had told the court that she couldn't serve on a jury because she wasn't a US citizen, but she doesn't seem to have a problem voting like one.
Based on the NBC2 investigation, local election offices say they'll now request a copy of every jury excusal form where residents say they can't serve because they're not a citizen.
