Yesterday while the press was focused on Obama in Afghanistan and the online community found the one job loss that mattered in America more details about the Cleveland Bomb plot have come out that really illustrates the mindset of the Occupiers who have been so embraced and supported by the MSM and the left.
As the alleged plotters batted around assorted attack ideas–like bombing a “Nazi/Klan headquarters” or blowing up a Federal Reserve bank–Wright joked that he would wear a suicide vest and blow himself up, “but advised he would have to be very drunk.”
Look at the thought process, to the occupod there is no difference between a “Nazi/Klan HQ” and a Federal reserve bank.
* A local Justice Center was considered a good target, but a bombing there was rejected since the accused plotters believed “they would risk hurting inmates.
The guards, the nurses, the staff, no big deal if they are killed or hurt.
can you imagine that if instead of the story being about Occupy Wall Street doing Obama’s bidding, if this was the Tea Party threatening to close bridges and cripple the American economy on behalf of Romney? Do you think under those circumstances the corrupt media might be screaming from the rooftops about a promised threat?
Actually John we don’t have to imagine it, we saw it with the Gabby Giffords shooting where the MSM immediately tried to blame Sarah Palin, but rest assured other than a brief mention as the various court dates go on, this story will be quietly ignored and consigned to the back page or passed over by the MSM.
So we can’t expect the media to remind us of this plot when discussion of the Occupods come up. After all it’s not like one of the plotters was an Occupy Spokesman or something.
Update: Smitty noticed Cleveland:
If President Barack Obama deserves any credit for the takeout of bin Laden, then he certainly deserves to eat the dog that is #Occupy. This movement represents the culmination of the societal decay that BHO was supposed to fix. Somehow. And yet, as always, he achieves the opposite of his stated objectives.
And Jim Treacher continues to roll.
Update 2: At least Michael Moore thought it was a good day.
Update 3: Why does this story out of Quebec seem relevant:
The truth is, the education they’re getting is overpriced at any cost. The protesters do not include accounting, science and engineering students, who have better things to do than hurl projectiles at police. They’re the sociology, anthropology, philosophy, arts, and victim-studies students, whose degrees are increasingly worthless in a world that increasingly demands hard skills. The world will not be kind to them. They’re the baristas of tomorrow and they don’t even know it, because the adults in their lives have sheltered them and encouraged their mass flight from reality.
Update 4: Nothing to see in Seattle either
Update 6: Newsbusters details the cone of media silence
Baxter, Hayne and Wright all appear to have connections to Occupy Cleveland and the overall Occupy movement –a movement marked by extensive violence and criminality, yet embraced by Democrats and liberal leaders such as Nancy Pelosi and President Barack Obama. That may explain why the liberal media is downplaying or ignoring the Occupy connection – it might embarrass Obama.
USA Today? No mention at all.
Bloomberg? No mention at all.
CBS News? No mention at all.
Voice of America? No mention at all.

This should surprise absolutely nobody paying attention.
