The national media has been disgracefully silent the past several weeks over the ugly crime wave sweeping the so-called “Occupy” protests. Numerous incidents of sexual assault and rape have been occuring and there’s total silence from all the Democrats who so enthusiastically support the movement. Not a peep from “women’s rights” groups, either.
How can they just sit there mute when we see incidents such as this?
Listen to the despair of this woman and wonder how much reportage we’d have seen had anyone ever been assaulted at a Tea Party rally. Instead, watch the smug “Occupiers” tell the reporter how things are handled by their crack security team.
Sure, handled just like the incident reported a couple of weeks ago.
Efforts by the Occupy Baltimore protest group to evolve into a self-contained, self-governing community have erupted into controversy with the distribution of a pamphlet that victim advocates and health workers fear discourages victims of sexual assaults from contacting police.
The pamphlet says that members of the protest group who believe they are victims or who suspect sexual abuse “are encouraged to immediately report the incident to the Security Committee,” which will investigate and “supply the abuser with counseling resources.”
That’s really working out well, huh?
Baltimore is hardly the only hotbed for rapists. It’s out of control in New York, where even a deaf man was reportedly raped.
To their credit, the New York Post has been one of the few “mainstream” outlets reporting on the ugliness in Zuccotti Park. Again, however, “organizers” are handling the rape epidemic internally.
“Pervert! Pervert! Get the f–k out!” said vigilante Occupiers, who never bothered to call the cops.
“They were shining flashlights in his face and yelling at him to leave,” said a woman who called herself Leslie, but refused to give her real name.
She said that weeks earlier another woman was raped.
“We don’t tell anyone,” she said. “We handle it internally. I said too much already.”
An “Occupy Cleveland” protester tells police she was raped in her tent over the weekend.
Cleveland police are investigating an alleged sexual assault incident Saturday at the “Occupy Cleveland” rally involving a 19-year-old female student from Parma.
Again, zero national coverage of the incident, outside of the blogosphere.
Then there was this incident in Dallas.
Dallas Police continue to investigate whether a teenage runaway was sexually assaulted by an adult male at the Occupy Dallas encampment behind City Hall.
A source within the Dallas Police Department who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation said the girl ran away from home in Garland last month and that she is now refusing to cooperate with investigators. She initially told officers that she had sex with a man in his early twenties and had engaged in sexual activity with several other people.
The girl is 14 years old.
Speaking of young kids, how much attention do you recall being paid to the man exposing himself to little kids at Occupy Seattle?
Then there was the enterprising “Occupier” up in New Hampshire who tried to pimp out a 16-year-old.
Again, mostly ignored.
Also ignoring the rapes of the occupiers? Why, none other than Baltimore native Nancy Pelosi, who recently said:
“God bless them for their spontaneity,” Pelosi told reporters. “It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.”
Ah, nothing like a little youthful spontaneity to take the edge off of those long, arduous days of laying around doing nothing but whining and complaining about your miserable lot in life.
While you’re not busy trying to rape someone.
Update: Baltimore police are now investigating the latest incident while the “occupiers” feign concern about the lawlessness they’re breeding.
