Tax revenue but first -- -- activists are vowing to expand their protests this week with an eye toward disrupting the Iowa Caucuses next week.
-- -- hurt the GOP but.
How will look look to the rest of the country that prominent Democrats like.
President Obama Nancy Pelosi are supporting a movement that's trying to disrupt the democratic process.
Let's ask big government dot com Andrew -- -- -- Been following the Occupy Movement right from the beginning.
So at her first of all what are their plans.
Well yes it's to go to the Iowa Caucuses.
And two occupied.
But I first of all at the end of the year would like to take you first have been so consistently.
The Occupy Movement just as it looks like it's dead because.
It occupies San Francisco Oakland.
New York and DC.
They've they've cleared out their central locations.
Occupy is alive and kicking in doing precisely what it was intended to be.
And that is to BD re a -- Obama.
And this same group of people for the same purpose is but he did not have a -- as a name back in 2008.
Did the same exact thing.
They plan on doing an Iowa.
At Republican National Convention.
I in in Saint Paul -- two men part of this group called the GOP welcoming committee.
Protested against the the police protested against the delegates it was an.
Just as the Occupy Movement isn't -- guys -- federal prison because they were planning to use Molotov cocktails.
On the police.
What have you done all day if they do that I mean if they turned the Iowa Caucuses in two bloody riots there is gonna be hell to pay because the majority of Americans are gonna look at that even Democrats are gonna look at that and say.
First they disrupted private property that even pissed off a lot of liberal democratic mayors.
Then they try to disrupt the democratic process there couldn't be -- war anti democratic movement in the country if they do that.
Well I why I'm not suggesting that they're going to go violent in the end.
In Iowa but there are there are violent elements with in -- there are radical radical elements with in occupied.
And I'm saying that if -- get -- to it as its coming towards the election.
As this mole bile occupy group that can can can be -- -- which means it can be in Tampa Florida.
Protesting against Republicans if they see the potential that Barack Obama is losing in the polls I would it would not.
Surprise me that they would step up the violent but it would surprise me if President Obama and his cadre of of reelection experts would think that that would be helpful.
In any way to the president's reelection chances.
And yet yet we he is on record not only the president but Nancy Pelosi in support.
Of the Occupy Movement let's just play a couple of those clips.
Giving voice to a more broad based frustration.
About -- our financial system works and god bless them and respond to long -- you know it's an independent people coming its young.
It's -- loans and it's going to be effective.
Well as statement like god bless these people who were who were disturbing the democratic process and -- is is gonna come back to bite these guys isn't it.
I yes I think so but I think that a lot of these people are tonne death and what they're trying to do -- Not just to show to do it not to just become a presence there -- also there to neutralize the Tea Party.
And to intimidate the Tea Party if if occupy can be so mobile and death that it can -- show up.
At any place -- Republicans are going to be whether be at the Republican National Convention pro testing.
Somehow -- these people don't have a right to protest for being at occupied caucuses.
To disrupt or intimidate people what they're trying to do is scare the little old ladies they go to the Tea Party to say hey I don't wanna get involved and -- they well they just have enthusiasts -- absolutely focus at like a -- -- so Andrew you were saying.
That the Democrats the leading Democrats leading the reelection campaign -- the president want to use the occupied movement as a power play.
Against the Tea Party that that is playing with fire is -- not.
That's exactly what it is that's what it always -- And it this this is the -- left Acorn does the same thing as CIU does the same thing and they've gotten they've gotten like bears.
In a city you know they they they get they they go in at night and they grab food from the trash can.
These people have gotten so comfortable protests -- and the media not covering net that Acorn.
SC IU occupier going to people's homes.
And knowing that the press is gonna let them get away with that they're trying to intimidate the Tea Party an average Americans.
From protests -- or showing their displeasure with this administration.
And the Democratic Party in control.
All right well -- as you very generously suggested beginning to show we have.
Covered this from the beginning we're not gonna -- it's easy to dismiss these guys because some of them seem like such lunatics.
But some of this some of them have very serious -- is that we have to take very seriously -- we will continue to do so with your help Andrew -- -- thank you very much.
Appreciate it thanks David well our next guest says the occupy protests will fall on deaf fears that the Republicans.
Have a lot more sway -- most of the 99% -- then.
The protesters -- Michael Reagan.
