#Occupy Protesters Vandalized Historic Building And Statue
The Protesters of Peace & Social Justice™ are at it (again!) with more destruction and disrespect.
At their St. Louis rally this past weekend, they decided to spray paint a building in historic Reservoir Park:
They spray painted a stone wall surrounding the reservoir with the words "occupy" and "attack" (there is a third word, but I can't read it.):
They also spray painted a 100-year-old statue and city landmark in the park:
(Irony: Statue of Naked Truth is a symbol of truth and enlightenment.)
Must be a product of the American Dream.
(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)
Obama supports these protesters.
Pelosi blesses them.
@AlecBaldwin thinks its "good".
Other 'products of the American Dream' that never seemed to affect the Tea Party...
Susan Chasnoff, an #Occupy protester, assures us this was not official actions of the #Occupy St. Louis movement.
But one has to wonder why no one from the #Occupy protest tried to stop the vandals. The vandals could not have gone unnoticed. The sheer amount of spray paint around the park indicates some culpability.

Update: A media representative of the St. Louis #Occupy movement, Chuck Whitthaus, had this to say about the graffiti:
"This is the first we've heard of this incident, we have no idea who might have done it nor do we care to speculate on it. With two people being shot by police in St. Louis over the weekend and the incident that happened Thursday we're more worried about brutal police violence and misconduct than graffiti. Occupy the Midwest was a group of individuals attempting to make decisions collectively through Our General Assembly process and no decision regarding graffiti came out of that body."
It's a vicious cycle, eh, Chuck? Violently protest the rich, destroy private property, vandalize city property, provoke police, resist police, and then you have to respond by violently protesting the police, destroying private property, vandalizing city property, provoking police, resisting police...
On and on it goes.
It's no wonder the #Occupy movement is so supportive of Palestine. They have the same mentality - attack, attack, attack, and then when their victim strikes back, they cry for more violence in retaliation.
