Video: Fox reporter threatened with stabbing by OWS protester; Update:NYPD, FDNY seize OWS generators as “fire hazards”

posted at 10:05 am on October 28, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Lest one think that the allegation in this clip from the local Fox station is an outlier, it’s worth noting that John Huddy’s not the only one worried about assaults.  One police union has apparently warned the Occupiers in Zuccotti Park that any assaults on police officers — or at least sergeants — will result in lawsuits. That may not have the Occupiers too concerned, but that threat might not be aimed entirely at OWS, either (via JWF):

Fox 5 News Reporter Assaulted At OWS: MyFoxNY.com

A protester, angered by the presence of a news crew inside Zuccotti Park Friday morning, threatened to stab Fox 5 News reporter John Huddy.

What has been an otherwise violence-free period during his six weeks covering the Occupy Wall Street movement, took a turn for John Huddy. He explained what happened during Good Day New York:

“This is somebody I’ve come across several times for the last few days. He threatened to stab me in the throat with a pen. He ripped the mic out of my hand,” said Huddy.

“I have a meeting with Bloomberg,” said the incoherent protester. The man was soon arrested by the NYPD.

It’s a little difficult to imagine winning any kind of cash award from people who don’t have jobs and are living off donations while squatting on someone else’s property. However, it’s the “someone else’s property” that might come into play. If the union wanted to make trouble, it could include the owner of Zuccotti Park as a co-defendant, as the owners have allowed the demonstration to take place on their property. The threat of such an action might be enough to push park’s owners into demanding action from the NYPD to clear the park. I wouldn’t bet on them taking it that far, but it’s certainly possible — just as it would be for anyone who gets assaulted by protesters in the park, for that matter.

Remember when Tea Party protesters threatened to stab reporters and rioted in the streets, destroying public property and refusing to disperse? Oh, yeah, that never happened. Meanwhile, our friend Steven Crowder takes a look at the Occupy Movement with one of the most scurrilous accusations against the Tea Party in mind, and discovers that perhaps the media might want to take a second look at Occupiers:

For more on the Occupy Movement’s flirtations with anti-Semitism, see Zombie’s posts at PJ Media. And don’t miss what San Francisco health inspectors found at their own Occupy demonstration. These demonstrations have become a physical health hazard, not just an intellectual health hazard.

Update: It’s going to get cold out there tonight (again via JWF):

The city has stripped Occupy Wall Street protesters of their power. …

“They made an announcement on a bullhorn saying: ‘We are here to take the generators, could you please bring them up to us on the corner of Broadway and Liberty Street’,” said James Bennett, a member of the information working group.

When no one from Occupy Wall Street surrendered the generators, more than 20 uniformed FDNY and NYPD officials entered the park to seize them, witnesses said.

The protesters say five generators were seized in total, including one which was biodiesel and ran on used vegetable oil.

How long until iPads and iPhones have to be recharged, and lantern batteries die?  I’d give it a night or two at best.

There are allegations of rape, and theft going on right now, and that’s done NOTHING to take action against these violence induced vagrants.

I’m sure the fact that they’re living in these conditions is taking it’s toll now. Not to mention drug use. It’s seriously becoming a dangerous situation. Not just physically, but mentally. How long now, before they take action on those threats? Someones going to be seriously hurt, or worse…killed. Will that be enough? Should it be?

It seems to me, we want to avoid that kind of situation, yet it’s being allowed to fester. So now we just sit, and wait.

For those who want to keep up with all the crimes at these OWS events, there’s now a handy site for that!

I wrote yesterday that the occupiers aren’t a political movement, they are a crime wave. Until now, however, it has been hard to keep up with all of the occupiers’ misdeeds, most of which are reported, if at all, in local press outlets. Now there is a single web site, OWS Exposed, devoted exclusively to revealing the truth about the disreputable, crime-ridden, far left Occupy Wall Street movement.

“The marchers say they are here for the long run and are not going anywhere”

…unless of course Obama is re-elected…then they will disappear from the streets just like they did when they used to be against war.

“The OWS protester threatened to stab me and stated we needed to get out of here”

….then was happy to turn around and declare how important it is that they be allowed to stay there and practice their first Amendment rights.

Rudyard Kipling described the OWS protesters to a tee in “The Jungle Book”. The OWS protesters are the Bandar-log, or Monkey people. Here is a short description from Wikipedia:

“In Hindi, Bandar means ‘monkey’ and log means ‘people’. The Bandar-log feature most prominently in the story “Kaa’s Hunting”, where their scatterbrained anarchy causes them to be treated as pariahs by the rest of the jungle.[1] Their foolish and chattering ways are illustrated by their slogan: We are great. We are free. We are wonderful. We are the most wonderful people in all the jungle! We all say so, and so it must be true. Bandar-log communicate almost entirely through the repetition of other animals’ speech.”

and here is the poem he wrote about them:

Here we go in a flung festoon,
Half-way up to the jealous moon!
Don’t you envy our pranceful bands?
Don’t you wish you had extra hands?
Wouldn’t you like if your tails were–so–
Curved in the shape of a Cupid’s bow?
Now you’re angry, but–never mind,
Brother, thy tail hangs down behind!

Here we sit in a branchy row,
Thinking of beautiful things we know;
Dreaming of deeds that we mean to do,
All complete, in a minute or two–
Something noble and wise and good,
Done by merely wishing we could.
We’ve forgotten, but–never mind,
Brother, thy tail hangs down behind!

All the talk we ever have heard
Uttered by bat or beast or bird–
Hide or fin or scale or feather–
Jabber it quickly and all together!
Excellent! Wonderful! Once again!

Now we are talking just like men!
Let’s pretend we are … never mind,
Brother, thy tail hangs down behind!
This is the way of the Monkey-kind.

Then join our leaping lines that scumfish through the pines,
That rocket by where, light and high, the wild grape swings.
By the rubbish in our wake, and the noble noise we make,
Be sure, be sure, we’re going to do some splendid things!

“If the union wanted to make trouble, it could include the owner of Zuccotti Park as a co-defendant, as the owners have allowed the demonstration to take place on their property.”

Union? Heck anyone who is injured has that option. It’s called deep pockets, and considering the coordination between the City and Brookfield Properties, Brookfield’s knowledge of the self-imposed limits the City is putting on enforcing the law at the Park, would certainly put Brookfield in dangerous territory for a negligence decision in any suit.

Documents from discovery wrt Brookfield and the City, as well as that of any politicians personally (and, maybe, those from ACORN offshoots) putting pressure on Brookfield, would be a very interesting read.

Dusty on October 28, 2011 at 11:18 AM

Michael Savage alluded to this on his Tuesday show. He even read a portion of the story.

I’m sick of them.

You, and millions of others.

Generators?
Do you mean generators that burn gasoline produced by corporations like Exxon which stock is traded on Wall street?

They can also be used to power those little 1000 watt ceramic heaters which would heat a tent nicely. I think that’s what’s behind the generator confiscation.

Ohhhhh, you mean like HOUSES??? Now, there’s a novel idea, going home. They continue to re-invent society and call themselves brilliant and edgy.

Yeah, but see, they won’t have to buy lots to put them on. It’s all free!

Really ? I was wondering if anyone had made the connection yet, since I find it so obvious. (Who is Michael Savage? I should watch his show)

Well, this will make things interesting: http://www.accuweather.com/blogs/news/story/56969/nyc-philly-boston-snow-versus.asp

They’ll have to make a few more runs through to get them all, methinks. Sooner or later it won’t be fun anymore and they’ll all leave.

ZOO-cotti park needs to have “Do not feed the animals” signs attached to the fence baracades.

Surely a tent city fire started by biofuel is harmless.

“If the union wanted to make trouble, it could include the owner of Zuccotti Park as a co-defendant, as the owners have allowed the demonstration to take place on their property.”

At some point it does become the park owner’s problem, just as for the owner of a crack house. They have an attractive nuisance and are responsible for what happens as a result of their neglect of that property.

Bloomberg is a ass-kissing weakling and New York deserves him….. moron liberals. Remember? Elections have consequences.

How long until iPads and iPhones have to be recharged, and lantern batteries die? I’d give it a night or two at best.

LOL

No, what we’ll be hearing next is how local business owners will complain of them coming in their building and using the receptacles.

Plus, I’m sure a large majority of them will just go back to mom’s basement for a few hours while they wait for their laptops, tablets and phones to recharge.

Is there a pool about which ows site will have the first murder?
