Much of the fault for the failure of the protestors here at the Charlotte Democratic Convention lies with – the protestors themselves.
Why isn’t their message getting through? Well, as appealing as soggy, unwashed, tatooed Marxists yelling obscenities may be, their message is hopelessly muddled.
They say they want Obama tried for war crimes. But how can you say you insist that the rule of law be applied to all when you support illegal aliens who DEMAND (their word) halting all deporations?
The Occupy protestors scream at the Bank of America building for the number of home foreclosures, apparently unaware it was their hero Barney Frank (and other liberals) who imposed “affirmative action” lending, making it all too easy for unqualified people to get loans. People who can’t discipline themselves to save for a down payment won’t be able to make future payments. It’s that simple.
Saddest of all, the Occupiers denounce the loss of middle-class income, while supporting floodtide immigration, which has suppressed wages. Big business loves an overabundance of cheap labor. That’s why the Wall Street Journal supports Open Borders.
And while the Occupiers think it’s grand that Obama can impose the Dream Act by imperial decree, they dislike his use of drone strikes. But when one man has that much power concentrated in his hands, don’t be surprised WHEN (not if) he abuses that power. That’s just human nature.
