What OWS Really Thinks of the 99 Percent

Jack Kemp

The mainstream media was very upset about a few Marines urinating on the bodies of dead out of uniform terrorists who have been trying to kill them in a war. This story was all over many websites. Even Hillary Clinton denounced the Marines who did this. At the same time, Obama union ally the SEIU supports Occupy Wall Street. But when OWS members urinated on a cross in a Brooklyn church that gave them sanctuary, as well as stole from a Manhattan church, the mainstream media and New York local Democrats remain silent on the issue reported in a major newspaper.

The NY Post reported that Occupy Wall Streeters will no longer allowed to find sanctuary at the West Park Presbyterian Church, on West 86th Street in Manhattan – unless they return part of baptismal font that was stolen and make amends for their damage. The Church has given them two weeks to leave. West Park Presbyterian, with both services in English and Spanish listed on their website, found a bronze basin and lid to a baptismal font gone. Although the basin was later found, the lid is still missing. The Post also reported an unusual expression of outrage for a churchman – but not for a New Yorker – when the Rev. Bob Brashear told the Occupiers that the vandalism “was like pissing on the 99 percent.”

The Post also reports more outrageous acts by the “people’s movement,” OWS:


The artifact vanished just three weeks after a $2,400 Apple MacBook vanished from Brashear’s office.


In Brooklyn, at another church housing OWS protesters, an occupier urinated on a cross, according to Rabbi Chaim Gruber, who has angrily abandoned the OWS movement.

In a letter last week to OWS obtained by The Post, the rabbi fumed, “The Park Slope church housing occupiers was desecrated when an occupier peed inside the building and the pee came into contact with a cross.”


These are the same Euro Utopians, “building a better world,” who took over a house in Brooklyn, raped a woman in Philadelphia and allegedly raped a man in New York, nurtured conditions for a tuberculosis outbreak at their encampment in Atlanta – and tried to shut down all ports on the West Coast of the United States while having some success in shutting down Oakland’s port.

The OWS disrespect for communities has gotten so bad that even earlier supporter and New York City Councilman Charles Barron (D) has turned against them because of the OWS house occupation and related reasons.

I recall seeing Charles Barron in person at the New York City Council hearing in February, 2011 on the issue of whether to allow Walmart to open a store in Brooklyn. As Wikipedia documented,

Barron called Walmart a "roving plantation" and said "There are no slaves in East New York. We will not be your slave workers.”

I believe Newt Gingrich addressed Mr. Barron’s concerns about entry level jobs that teach skills to teenagers when he replied to Juan Williams, telling of his (Newt’s) daughter working as a church janitor as a teen. And at that City Council hearing, I was surprised that Barron didn’t object to black teens working at McDonald’s, where many a black teen gets their first opportunity and job training – and pocket money. I guess attacking McDonald’s would be way too unpopular a remark for him to make about the beloved “Mickey D’s.”

Charles Barron is clearly a liberal, as are the two clergymen quoted above - but even they have to draw the line somewhere – between legitimate protest and nihilistic anarchy and license which destroys a community. They are finding out that when Lenin (borrowing from Robespierre in the French Revolution) said you have to be willing to break a few eggs in order to make an omelet, that often in a political movement one gets more broken eggs at one’s feet than nourishment. And the mess from the “broken eggs” flows into their communities, not just staying as clean illustration on the pages of some book of political sayings one can pass along to one’s followers.
