    "Occupy" protestors block DNC buses

    On Tuesday, a group of more than 100 protesters shouting "Obama is a traitor" temporarily shut down official bus service that ferries around delegates at the Democratic National Convention. The protesters, some of whom were lying down in the street, were surrounded by Charlotte police, who used their bicycles to build a barrier around the group.

    "What do you think of free speech zones?" shouted one protester to the police and onlookers, referring to the cordoned off areas for activists. "Does that seem strange to you?" Protesters also shouted that accused Wikileaks source Bradley Manning should be freed. At one point, the protesters raised a tent above their heads and set it on the ground. "Bad news, guys, they've pitched a tent," a police officer joked. "They might be here for the duration."

    Delegates and convention-goers who were forced to wait for buses to be rerouted expressed surprise that the Occupy presence has been stronger at the DNC than the Republican convention in Tampa last week. "I didn't see them at the Republican convention," said Wandra Ashley-Williams, vice president of the Maryland State Conference NAACP. "That's not good."

    This is interesting. Fox News painted these guys at hippie liberal scumbags. Will they even mention that now they are also protesting the DNC...?

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    I for one, would give them credit. Good for them, it's about time ONE of these protest groups were not just an arm of one of the two corrupt parties.

    Ever since the tea party became entrenched with the republicans they became worthless to me.

    Good to see. We need a lot more of this from people in occupy and tea party. Attack both parties equally because they both deserve it.

    The best analogy of the tea party and occupy movements.

    Idiots accopmplishing nothing.

    They're protesting Obama for not being enough of a Communist.
    It's not a "protest" as much as it's an "urging".

    They are actually "PROTESTING" the right in general.

    Thanks Shifty!
