Small Business Owners Fight Back Against Occupy Wall Street

Small business owners and local residents fed up with the “Occupiers” at Zuccotti Park in New York City are planning a counterprotest and news conference of their own Monday, to make clear the crowd has long overstayed its welcome — and that businesses will not survive if the “occupation” continues.

…In recent days, shopkeepers, restaurant owners and others with small businesses located near Zuccotti Park have been quietly meeting to share stories of the damage they say has been caused by Occupy Wall Street: theft of property, vandalism, threats, violence and even incidents involving the throwing of fecal matter.

The flyers were printed out by a 46-year-old unemployed teacher named Leslie who has spearheaded the counterprotest efforts. She asked her last name not be used out of concern the protesters would retaliate against her, and that her involvement in the counterprotest might negatively affect her job search.

It’s time for them to go,” Leslie said of the Occupiers.

…A police officer who was posted at the perimeter of the park for seven days said he would be attending the Monday event out of uniform, “as a protester and fed-up New Yorker.”

“After speaking with many of them, I realize they are unemployable takers,” he said, asking that his name not be used. “They just want to be able to tell their friends, ‘Hey, I was there.’ There is no leader, no voice. They have money in the bank but can’t agree on using it and no one knows who controls it.

I’m sick of it. Fed up like everyone else.

Our own little cadre of Pensacola Occupiers are “fighting” to stay at City Hall ~ yes, that’s where the douchey, no-spine City Council let them MOVE their tents, instead of telling them to grow up and go away, like any OTHER citizens would have been forced to do.

But the special children cling on. And their enablers let them, so we’ll see what happens after this weekend. If somebody grows a pair and if a temper tantrum ensues. One hopes not, but it should never have been allowed to fester this long anyway.

For a palate cleanser, imagine Steven Crowder. Now imagine that sweet face as it got snarly with an Occupy Denver type rude enough to attempt a crash of BlogCon11 and then accuse CROWDER…of violence.

Yes. I got it right here.

    I wondered when the New Yorkers would get fed up with these cretins. I imagine that Bloomberg will use the (rightly) complaining small business owners as an excuse to do what that spineless dweeb should have done weeks ago.

    I can’t believe that some of these business owners haven’t sued some of these cities. I’m also surprised that some of these owners haven’t resorted to a bat or clue-by-four in some of these situations.

    Some smart enterprising lawyer should be able to find some statute that states the police cannot sit there with their thumbs up their butts while thugs rob, assault and destroy peoples property.

    Silly rabbit: this is the Obama Regime and New York City. Business people have no rights.

    Fight liberals with their own weapons. The businessmen and local residents affected by these scum should sue the Commie scum for damages, lost income, mental pain and anguish, and any other thing they can dream up. And, since they won’t get any money out of the Commie scum, make the city co-respondent on the grounds of its failure to do its duty enforcing the law; misfeasence, malfeasance, and nonfeasance in allowing these torts, lawbreaking, and insanitary practices leading to a danger to public health, to be committed in the presence of agents of the city government, to wit: police officers.

    Yeah, that’s what I was trying ta say!

    And torts should work well with the food service industry!
