From Megyn Kelley: "This was not at the bank's corporate offices - it was at a man's home."
Mark Sawyer is completely insane, so this clip is a little rough. I apologize in advance.
First of all, he claims the Black Panthers haven't been around since 1968? What? Did he forget this? Or this? Or this? And this was just this month! That's right y'all. A Black Panther is on the ballot as a Democrat in Philly.
But I digress: This is the SEIU. The same SEIU that is so connected to the White House. They're pissed off about the bailouts. I get it. I understand. I am too, for clearly different reasons. They're free to protest - I'm a huge fan of protests myself. I'm grateful that we still live in a place where we CAN protest.
The line gets crossed when you take a protest from a public venue and place it on someone's doorstep. When you invade someone's home and trap their kid inside while 500 people rage on their front lawn, it ceases to be a protest, and becomes a mob.
Then Sawyer has the cajones to say this is "what the tea party would be if they weren't so reactionary and misguided... this is where they would be focusing their rage." So... wait, what? We should be focusing on a lawyer from Bank of America - who isn't even a CEO or executive - and going to their house? We sould rage against private citizens and send 14 buses to trap their kid in their house? It's one thing to protest the Capitol, state capitols, Congressional offices, places of business. If he thinks we're "misguided" to go after the Congressmen and other elected officials who FACILITATED the collapse and cut the checks to the people who he claims causes the problem, then there's really nothing I can do to help him.
The Tea Party has been around for almost a year and a half now. There has been no violence and only minimal arrests - only one comes to mind. It's absurd to even place these two protests in the same category.
The bottom line is that the SEIU is dangerous. This isn't a new thing, and I don't want to give the impression that they only recently crossed lines - it's been happening for ages. My theory is that they're becoming bolder as a result of a) having the support of the White House, and b) being challenged. They don't know what to do with opposition but beat them down.
Gird your loins.
