Occupy Atlanta: Not So Much?

Just when you thought it couldn’t be any more ludicrous, it turns out that some within the Occupy Atlanta crowd have said that the radical racist organiation Nation of Islam will be providing security for their intended re-occupation of Woodruff Park.  This may yet turn ugly, as Occupy Atlanta protesters were rousted from the park on October 26th by police, and are now planning a return to the park on Saturday.  Whether the Nation of Islam will be involved is anybody’s guess, as CBSLocal Atlanta reports that the Occupiers are denying the Nation of Islam will be involved, while some members of the organization say it’s going to happen:

“I think that will make a huge difference,” protester David Smith added to the Midtown Patch on the matter.

This is the last thing we need to have added to this freak-show.  The Nation of Islam has a history of violence and intimidation, and it can’t possibly improve conditions to have their presence as a “security force” for protesters.  If indeed the Nation of Islam shows up, the potential for violence will jump too.  All of the leftist and anarchist forces are aligning, and it has all the earmarks of collusion.

This entire movement is intended to intimidate, disrupt, and cause chaos, and slowly but surely, it’s succeeding.  In related news, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said today that Obama owns the Occupy movement, and that “this will be the millstone around Barack Obama’s neck.”  If he’s right, and I suspect he may be, there is going to be an all-out effort to deflect any criticism on this basis by this White House.  The problem will be that President Obama has been too close to this all along, and his surrogates have been involved in it directly.  Combined with the facts of his own radical past, the President is going to have a hard time distancing himself from all of this.  Maybe he has no intention of so doing.
