"Occupy Wall St." described as a "mob"; Meet the 53%ers; Paid protesters in DC; Who are the 99%ers?; Meet the Coalition of American Voices; NYC mobs crippling NYC economy

The White House is criticizing House GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s description of Wall Street protesters as a “mob,” saying the activists compare favorably with the tea party movement.
“I don’t understand why, you know, one man’s mob is another man’s democracy,” presidential press secretary Jay Carney said Friday.
“I think both are expressions that are totally consistent with the American democratic tradition.”

[Tea Party attendees are not supported by far left and progressive groups such as Code Pink, SEIU (which actually received a government bailout), the Teamsters union, the Communist Party USA, and the Workers World Party and other anarchist groups; they don't have unions demanding their members to join the protest; they don't pay people to demonstrate; they don't cripple the city's economy; they don't desecrate the American flag; they do not need to be arrested for disorderly conduct; they don't take over public property to the point where people have trouble getting to their jobs; they don't camp out for weeks on end, creating filth which cleaning crews cannot clean up while they are there; they clean up after themselves; they don't make noise far into the evening, keeping neighbors awake; they actually know what they are protesting other than having a revolution; they have no mandate for government to take care of them from cradle to grave; and they don't shout obscenities against those of whom they disapprove.  Other than that, they are just like the Occupy Wall Street protesters.]
The Blaze reports: Meet The 53%. Who are they?  The term 53% refers to the people who are actually paying taxes for themselves and the rest of the country.
The 53% is a group of responsible young people organizing across the country. However, this group is not camping out in parks around the country and demanding the entire capitalist system be destroyed. These men and women have jobs (most of them work at more than one job in order to make ends meet), but they are talking about attending the Minneapolis Occupy Wall St. protest scheduled for today – Friday, October 7th.
Here’s a statement from their web page;
So, like, when you’re, like, community organizing for solidarity and stuff, it’s totally cool to have this little hashtaggy thingy when you’re on twitter, so other people, like, totally know what you’re talking about and stuff. So if you’re, like, totally gonna spread the word about being one of the 53% of people who actually, like, pay taxes in America and don’t just, like, hang out protesting stuff all day… like, here’s the hashtaggy thingy. See you at the protest!   #iamthe53
Daily Caller reports: A liberal organizer told the Daily Caller on Thursday afternoon that he paid some Hispanics to attend “Occupy DC” protests happening in the nation’s capital.
TheDC attended the protest event, an expansion of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began in New York City. Some aspects of the protest, it turned out, are more Astroturf than grassroots.
One group of about ten Hispanic protesters marched behind a Caucasian individual from the DC Tenants Advocacy Coalition, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting rent control in Washington, D.C.
Asked why they were there, some Hispanic protesters holding up English protest signs could not articulate what their signs said.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jewish World Review opines: According to the mobs occupying Wall Street and other financial centers around the nation, they represent 99% of the country. That's means out of a nationwide population of roughly 300 million people, they speak for 297 million of us. Well not us. I'll take my chances with the other 3 million, or the One Percenters if you will. And I have a solution for dealing with people like me: quarantine us. When the unionists take out the Wall Street firms that not only create the wealth that pays their union wages, but also manage their health benefits and retirement pensions, what now? When the corporations who supply the computers, the phones, the clothes, the tents and every other item that has made the standard of living in this country the envy of the world have been pulled down, what now? When the hoarders hoard because there is no more incentive to make even the slightest extra effort to produce goods and services, what now? And most importantly, when the inevitable sub-class of "specialists" arise, as they must in any society where fairness can only be assured by constant monitoring — and rigid, jackboot enforcement — what now?
Make no mistake about who these people are. This is the true face of a progressive movement which can no longer mask the ugliness of its failures. And for socialist/Marxists, what now is completely irrelevant. What now is something to be dealt with after they crash the system. The progression has a logical sequence. Clueless students have been joined by public service unions, who will add organization — and muscle — to the movement. The tipping point will come when unionized police are forced to choose between protecting the innocent or joining their unionized brethren. If they choose the latter, it will necessary to bring in the National Guard.
If the protesters decide to engage the National Guard? At that point America will find out the real percentage of people who are dedicated to the proposition of "fundamentally transforming the United States of America" espoused by the current — and worst ever — occupant of the White House.
The Hayride writes: In the last few weeks, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have declared war on the Tea Party, and slandered the movement as being racially motivated. Representative Frederica Wilson (D-Florida), for example, told people, “the real enemy is the Tea Party,” and Representative Maxine Waters (D-California) said the Tea Party can “go straight to Hell.”
But the most incendiary accusations came from Indiana Democratic Congressman Andre Carson, who told attendees of a Congressional Black Caucus sponsored event in Miami that “some of these folk in Congress would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now — of this tea party movement — would love to see you and me…hanging on a tree.”
In light of these accusations, a new group of Conservative leaders from all over the country, including several prominent and proud Black Conservatives, have formed the Coalition of American Voices, in direct response to the slanders being perpetuated by the Congressional Black Caucus.
Founder C.L. Bryant says, “In all of history, there are few activities that are more deplorable than slave trading: one of them is race baiting. The Coalition of American Voices is dedicated to opposing both.”
The group has launched a website,, which contains a petition demanding an end to the slanders and racist rhetoric of the Congressional Black Caucus and a formal reprimand by Congress and the Obama Administration. The petition also lobbies businesses that contribute to members of the Congressional Black Caucus to cease contributions, and calls for the mainstream media to explain their silence on the violent and hateful rhetoric they claim to be against. The Coalition of American Voices will be sending invitations to members of Congress to sign the petition and asking them to bring forth legislation to coincide with its aims.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fox NY reports: Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Friday accused the Wall Street demonstrators of trying to cripple New York City's economy.
"What they're trying to do is take the jobs away from people working in this city," the mayor declared in his harshest criticism of the three-week-old protest that has caught the attention of the nation.
"They're trying to take away the tax base we have because none of this is good for tourism."
The mayor's comments came in response to a caller to his WOR Radio show who asked what the city intended to do about the protest headquarters in Zuccotti Park, which is near her apartment and where hundreds of people are camped out.
"What about my rights to use the park?" asked the caller, named Marsha.
"This is a little bit of greenery that we reclaimed after Sept. 11. It's not usable. There is a general sense of incivility down there. But worst of all are the drums and the shouting. I know they've agreed to stop the drumming. Last night they were drumming until 10:45. Someone did a little practice drumming this morning at 7:50."
