Occupiers Discriminated Against Because They Are Idiots

A group of Occupy protesters on its way from San Diego to Washington, D.C. is furious after it claims it was kicked off a Greyhound bus in Amarillo, TX.

“I was discriminated against because I was with Occupy San Diego,” protester Vivian McCardle told KFDA-TV. “It’s appalling that people would treat others like that. When I walked up to that door he said you’re one of them. You people. You’re one of them going to Washington. Umm… One of them?”

The group detailed the incident on the site Obrag.com. According to that account, the bus driver became agitated with the group during a rest stop and repeatedly told members to “Shut up and sit down.” When they continued to respond to the driver, he eventually exited the bus and made a phone call. That’s when several police officers showed up and the driver pointed out the occupiers and had them removed:

After a brief conversation with the driver the officers walked onto the bus and asked him to point out who he wanted removed. The driver began to walk around and ask different passengers whether they were with Occupy. The police stopped the driver and told him that instead of asking people if they are with Occupy, he should instead point out who specifically he wanted off the bus. The driver replied, “all fourteen of them, I want them all of the bus.”

The driver failed to realize that there were only thirteen people with the Occupy group on the bus and that he was mixing in to the group another passenger that voiced her concerns about the unfair treatment she witnessed.

Police arrest more than 400 after vandalism at Toronto economic summit

TORONTO (AP) — Police made more than 400 arrests after black-clad demonstrators broke off from a crowd of peaceful protesters at the global economic summit and went on a rampage in downtown Toronto that lasted into the early morning hours, authorities said Sunday.

The roving band of protesters torched four police cruisers and shattered shop windows with baseball bats and hammers for blocks, including at police headquarters, then shed some of their black clothes, revealing other garments, and continued their rampage.

Police used shields, clubs, tear gas and pepper spray to push back the protesters who tried to head south toward the security fence surrounding the Group of 20 summit site. Some demonstrators hurled rocks and bottles at police.

The vandalism occurred just blocks from where U.S. President Barack Obama and other world leaders were meeting and staying.

“What we saw yesterday is a bunch of thugs that pretend to have a difference of opinion with policies and instead choose violence to express those so-called differences of opinion,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s chief spokesman Dimitri Soudas said Sunday.

Toronto Police Sgt. Tim Burrows said Sunday that at least 412 people had been arrested in the rampage that began Saturday afternoon. Those arrested were taken to a temporary holding center constructed for the summit.

The streets of downtown Toronto were quiet at daylight, but Burrows said police were expecting a large protest later Sunday morning at a park near the detention center.

Burrows said many of the violent protesters were Canadian. He added that authorities had known of their plans for some time.

“We’re not sure we have the leaders, but we have a large proportion of those people and the people who decided they wanted to be influenced by these violent protesters and join with their cause,” Burrows said. “A lot of them were home grown. There’s a lot of Canadian talent in the group.”

Thousands of police headed to Toronto to reinforce security there after the smaller Group of Eight summit ended Saturday in Huntsville, Ontario, about 140 miles (225 kilometers) away. Security was being provided by an estimated 19,000 law enforcement officers drawn from across Canada, and security costs were estimated at more than US$900 million.

Saturday’s protests began with a peaceful march, sponsored by labor unions and dubbed family friendly, that was the largest demonstration planned during the summit weekend. Its organizers had hoped to draw a crowd of 10,000, but only about half that number turned out on a rainy day.

Police in riot gear and riding bikes formed a blockade, keeping protesters from approaching the steel and concrete security fence a few blocks south of the march route. Police closed a stretch of Toronto’s subway system along the protest route and the largest shopping mall downtown closed after the protest took a turned for the worse.

The black-clad demonstrators broke off from the larger crowd of peaceful protesters and began torching police cars and smashing shop windows.

Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair said the goal of the militant protesters was to draw police away from the security perimeter of the summit so that fellow protesters could attempt to disrupt the meeting.

Some police officers were struck by rocks and bottles and assaulted, but none was injured badly enough to stop working, Blair said.

“We have never seen that level of wanton criminality and vandalism and destruction on our streets,” Blair said.

Previous global summit protests have turned violent. In 1999, 50,000 protesters shut down World Trade Organization sessions in Seattle as police fired tear gas and rubber bullets. There were some 600 arrests and $3 million in property damage. One man died after clashes with police at a G-20 meeting held in London in April 2009.

At the September G-20 summit in Pittsburgh, police fired canisters of pepper spray and smoke and rubber bullets at marchers.

Legal Immigrants and 10 Counties Join Help Save Maryland at Rally – My letter to the State in Silver Spring as Casa De Maryland Day Center

Maryland Citizens and Legal Immigrants Unite in Rally against Casa De Maryland and Illegal Aliens in Silver Spring – My Report May 22nd, 2010


Today, Legal Immigrants and Legal Citizens of Maryland joined forces to Rally against the Lawless Organization Casa De Maryland, who blatantly state, “Regardless of Immigration Status, we will find you work”. Today, those Law Breakers held up make shift signs as we caught them completely off guard. The Signs Read, “Maryland Loves Immigrants”, well, that is true in 2 ways, one, yes, if you come here legally, we will embrace you and take you under our wings and support you, second, Maryland Citizens despises the non tax paying, social service, health care sucking dry Illegal Aliens in our State. Funny thing happened along the way, Governor O’Malley took a stance a few weeks ago, and now his comrade in arms, Doug Gansler is doing the same, stating that Illegal Immigration is a Federal Issue. Well, let me tell you something, you could not be further from the truth, if the Illegal Aliens, not undocumented, but Illegal Alien enters our state illegally, not paying taxes, using our tax dollars to promote job placement regardless of immigration status, then yes, it is your problem and since you refuse to uphold the laws of the state and the land, you to are the problem and not the solution. I would show you some pictures from today’s rally, but why should I? You ignore the Maryland Citizen and Legal Immigrant, and would probably find someway to use it against us, after all, we are only standing up for our Constitutional Right to Free Speech and Assemble and Protest. Let this be the pink slip notice to remind you, come November, we, THE PEOPLE will decide if you should stay or go. To the ilk supporters of Casa De Maryland, Joe Vallario, Doyle Neimann, Saqib Ali, Ana Sol, Pena-Melnyk, Harrington, Ramirez, Frosh, Mike Miller, Governor O’Malley, Susan Lee, Jill Carter, and many many others to name a few, you have destroyed Maryland with your support of this Criminal Organization. The People of Maryland are demanding a Federal Led Investigation into the going’s on of this group and we are also demanding the IRS take a look at that financials to find those who are donating from outside of this country who is on the USA watch list.

Today, along with Legal Immigrants who stood with us, we heard the horrific stories of Business Owners loosing their work because of under cutting bids, day laborers taking the jobs that the legal citizen should get, but because Maryland allows the Lawless Activities to continue, boss man picks up these illegals at cheap labor costs and does not report their payroll activities to the IRS, thus, saving a few bucks on the backs of illegals. Maryland has become the poster child for the Law Breakers with Arizona on Illegal Immigration, Driver’s License’s, Voting Rights through Maryland’s Motor Voter Law, Free Health care on our Tax Dollars, Free Education, Incarceration Costs, and on and on and on. When will it stop? I guess when it affects you and your family like it has those who have been murdered, raped, burglarized, hit by an illegal alien driving drunk? How about the poor children being victimized by Illegal Aliens? How about when you lose your business, or contracting work because boss man can pay less for illegals then those who are doing it by the book?

Today, we held Casa De Maryland accountable for their misdeeds and misuse of tax dollars and the assistance of Illegal Aliens in our Communities. We will no longer take a back seat. To the Governor who says he treats everyone Equally regardless of status, well sir, you have a problem enforcing state and federal immigration laws. To Doug Gansler, unless you plain on helping hold these organizations accountable, stay out of it, you are doing more damage supporting Illegal Immigration then fixing the problem. We don’t need you standing up for Gay Rights, we need you to stand up and Investigate the misuse of Tax Dollars and to take action at the requests of Legal Citizens of our once great state. To Peter Franchot, a man of his word and has always done the people’s work, one can only hope you decide to have the IRS look into this Organization and request they open the books.

To those Delegates and Senators who approved more tax dollars this year, and the 1 million dollar vote, you are on notice for November. The Status Quo Politician must be held accountable for not listening to their employer, The Maryland Tax Payer. Remember, you work for me and for the rest of the legal immigrants and legal citizens, not Illegal Aliens or to further your career or yourself.

Today, we took a step forward at reclaiming our once great state, and we will not stop until you do the work and will of the people. You should have seen it down there, trash everywhere in the housing community, about 75 or so Day Laborer’s waiting at the 7-11 at the corner of Piney Branch and University Blvd. That my friend’s is loitering and the police in Montgomery County should be citing those there, at which point, they can check the Immigration Status, but as Chief Manger stated and I quote, “I am not going to ask my officers to take a couple extra hours checking immigration status if they run a red light”, to which I say, why not, that’s why we are paying your salary, to protect the community, not ignore it. It’s time for Maryland to wake up and do what is right, stop ignoring our pleas for help.

In closing, I will remind you, we support the Legal Immigrant who comes here, fills out their paperwork and does it appropriately, if they have to wait, well, so what, that is not a reason to enter our state and steal our jobs and live here illegally. Think about this, if you cross over to other countries, say in Africa, Illegally, you know what they do to you? I think you already know that answer, that is how they deal with breaking the law, but here, you can stay. Or how about this, in Mexico, if you are caught a second time coming into their country illegally, they can jail you for up to 6 years. Lets adopt Mexico’s Illegal Immigration Laws and SB 1070 in Maryland and then we will see how Maryland’s budget will grow, unemployment will drop, and crime will go down. As an official blogger and writer, I can only write what they ask me to write, nothing more, nothing less. Now let’s get down to fixing the problem and make Maryland a Template for the rest of the Country to follow, not a mockery and embarrassment.

Thank you for your time.
