Imagine if Tea Partiers Were Treated like This: Wall Street Protesters Maced, Arrested, Tased

September 24, 2011

While right wing talking points are circulating that only a handful of protesters showed up on Wall Street on September 17th, just disregard it just as you would Fox News, because this ain’t no Tea Party — this is a peaceful protest that is a nonpartisan event.


Reports include: police abuse, bloody arrests, over 75 arrests thus far, tasing peaceful protesters, pushing protesters back and now reports of tear gas being used are pouring in.


This protest was blacked out by all media outlets. When the Tea Party has an orgasm, CNN is there — where are they now? MSNBC can’t seem to be bothered reporting the news either.

Jason Easley from PoliticusUSA reports:

The hypocrisy related to the lack of media coverage for this protest is obvious and undeniable. If twenty tea partiers stood in the very same spot and had announced that they were occupying Wall Street, it would have been all over the news. I think there is a great deal of truth in the idea that any protest that is deemed liberal gets classified by the media as non-news. Why this occurs is up for debate, but the message from the corporate run media is clear. It doesn’t matter how many people come out to protest in favor of collective bargaining or against the corruption on Wall St, the mainstream corporate media is not going to cover them.

If you’re a blogger, I urge you to blog this protest, or you are as much a part of what we/they are protesting against. We can not count on the MSM for accuracy, or even a semblance of such — the MSM does not even put on a pretense of reporting on this major event.

Journalists were arrested, a cameraman doing the livestreaming was arrested, even reports of a protester holding an umbrella was reportedly arrested. This is not democracy – this is oppression.

Livestreaming, after this video. Halfway into this, take note of females being maliciously maced by NYPD officers. Imagine if the same had been done to Tea Partiers.

    There isn’t police brutality at Tea Party movements because the Tea Party hasn’t broken the law. The Tea party is proactive in geting permits for their rallies while OWS is not.

    I think the real sad think is the people who are demonstrating are actually seriously pissed at what this government gets away with and pissed that everything we work for is just getting pulled out from under us and no one does anything about it, certainly not our politicians. Alot of people hate on these people and call them right wing this and right wing that….but the sad fact is that they are actually getting angry and protesting which is more then i can say about the majority of you all that just sit there and are silent. Really it just shows what breed of cowards people have become. I think these people are more american then the rest of us, at least they use their freedom of speech to protest on the streets, not to be bitching cowards attacking them on a forum. But if you are content with our lives being sold down river then w/e GG to you.

    So was the problem delivering yahoo mail with “wallstreet protest” human error by yahoo, spam filter manipulation by protestors, or something else?

    I don’t remember who said, “There comes a time when you just have to pull on the black mask & start slitting throats,” or something to that effect. I’m a peaceful person, really I am, but seeing those girls, my daughter’s age, get maliciously maced by thug cops really makes me want to grab a mask and a knife.

      1) Why bother with a mask?
      2)Never show up to a gunfight with a knife..
      Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth.
