Pouncing on Pepper Spray

Pouncing on Pepper Spray
Brent Bozell


Americans awoke Monday morning to all three TV networks spreading the latest viral video by the OWS publicity team showing police pepper-spraying seated student protesters in the face. Leftist students in Davis had linked arms and refused to move despite repeated warnings from campus police to clear out. They were determined to encourage police action. Protests are designed to gain publicity. Publicity demands conflict. Publicity demands egging on the police to engage the disobedient.

They needed to be victimized by police "brutality." They wanted desperately to be pepper-sprayed. They needed to regain the narrative.


"Peaceful." That's what they called them. What if a protesting block of humanity were to appear in front of an abortion clinic? Would that be "peaceful"? You know the truth. The media would report that as a violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act. "Physical obstruction," even if it's "peaceful," is illegal in that location. Put it on a campus, have it organized by leftist anarchists and it's somehow a socialist Shangri-La.


This proves again that our TV news stars are not journalists. They are publicists. They don't report "news." They supply badly disguised advertising campaigns for the causes they endorse.
