MSNBC Host: This OWS Movement Could Really Use a Kent State Moment

Just when you think the nauseating media cheerleading for the anarchists “occupying” something or other had hit rock bottom, along comes MSNBC idiot Donny Deutsch to plumb new depths.


Just imagine the mileage the Democrats would get out of seeing some of their props gunned down in the streets.

Meanwhile, as the animals roam wild, the pipsqueak Mayor of New York City acknowledged the folks running Zuccotti Park have succumbed to threats by unnamed politicians.

Brookfield reversed its decision to clear the park because it was intimidated by elected officials who are siding with the protestors, an angry Mayor Bloomberg said today.

“My understanding is Brookfield got lots of calls from many elected officials, threatening them and saying if you don’t stop this we’ll make your life more difficult,” the mayor said on his weekly radio show.

“If those elected officials had spent half as much time trying to promote the city to get jobs to come here we would a lot more ways towards answering the concerns of the protestors.

“I’m told they were inundated by lots of elected officials…”

The mayor said he didn’t know which elected officials applied the pressure.

Maybe he should ask his girlfriend, the one who sits on the Brookfield Board of Directors.

Meanwhile, don’t expect the Donny Deutsches of the world to look too far into this. Too much inconvenient truth.
On August 10, 2011, the hacker group “Anonymous” announced that it would join the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. That’s what sparked my interest in monitoring #OccupyWallStreet.

I reached out to a colleague and asked if he would be interested in studying the protest with me. At first, it seemed disorganized, and we believed it would only be a few hundred protestors.

As we engaged in monitoring its growth, we recruited other people to help us begin the collection of data available via social media. We began mapping out key players, and monitored Anonymous’s efforts to organize protests in the San Francisco Bay area public transportation system (#opBART) in order to detect patterns and key influencers.

Then, at the end of August, we were alerted by a fellow researcher that information about USDoR (U.S. Day of Rage, to which Occupy Wall Street is connected) had been posted on Shamuk and Al-Jahad, two Al-Qaeda recruitment sites. We began to take the “Occupy” protest more seriously, and dedicated more time to research and monitoring.

Days later, Anonymous announced that it would be releasing its new DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) tool. Because of the Al-Qaeda posting, we contacted the New York Field Office of the FBI so they could investigate the potential threat. From that point on, we decided we needed to include the Human Element of Intelligence (HUMINT), and to infiltrate the protestors to map their ties to Anonymous, and to the postings on Shamuk and Al-Jahad.
