Political supporters of Occupy Wall Street are probably going to be watching their backs after some of the stuff that has happened in recent days at the protests. Glenn has been having a bad feeling about these protests since they started, but has even deeper concern after seeing the events that unfolded this weekend.
Glenn first addressed the way the protestors in Atlanta treated Congressman John Lewis. You can get more details on this story HERE.
“The only time I've ever had a real cold chill run down my spine for real true evil when I'm watching the news I think has to be, when it comes to our country at least, I think the only time I've done that is when I first found Van Jones. I knew exactly who he was,” Glenn said.
“The only other time I've had this feeling was this weekend when I watched Congressman John Lewis,” Glenn said.
Over the weekend, Congressman Lewis was denied the opportunity to speak due to protestors in Atlanta believing that it put him on a higher level than those gathered in the park.
“What happened in Atlanta this weekend should be a clear sign to all of those who are in office now,” Glenn warned.
“Nancy Pelosi, you really think these people are your friends? Are you that stupid?” Glenn asked.
“People around Nancy Pelosi, are you this stupid? Do you really think that you're going to be able to somehow or another control these people?”
“Nancy Pelosi, do you really think that these people are somehow or another going to reason with you? You really think that the people who are out in the street right now and saying that the government betrayed us, that they have gotten rich, that the politicians are only in it for themselves, that they don't believe in either party anymore, they don't believe that the politicians are anything but corrupt, that the politicians took all of the money themselves, robbed the treasury, and gave it to the big bankers? Do you really think Nancy Pelosi as someone who voted for TARP, they're going the reason with you?”
“They're going to take you off of your private jet and they're going to burn your farm down to the ground. They're going to burn your vineyards down to the ground,” Glenn warned.
