Two kinds of Obama protesters, all together at last!Â San Francisco is perhaps the appropriate location!Â The OWS 'druggies' warned Obama to 'stop enforcing federal drug laws'; Tea Party wants to secure Liberty; and the one in the middle believes Obama is 'just right'. Tea Party people became sick from the second-hand "dope smoke".Â Yep, OWS smoking it right in the open (probably all had Medical Marijuana Cards).
The unthinkable finally happened last night in San Francisco: the Tea Party shared a protest with the Occupiers, both groups angry with the same person.
Here it is: proof! All three kinds of protesters, together at last. On the left (appropriately), an Occupier angry at Obama for not being sufficiently left-wing, and promising not to vote for Obama unless he stops enforcing federal drug laws. And on the right, a Tea Partier who thinks Obama is too left-wing. And in the middle, a rare find at such events, an Obama supporter who thinks heâ€™s â€œjust right.â€
The Occupiers this time around seemed unified around a single theme, one of the few policy areas where Obama hasnâ€™t even tried to mollify his base: legalizing marijuana. Most of the Occupy protesters had pot-themed signs. As for the Occupier in the middle with the â€œTeachâ€ sign: Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m worried about!
And they werenâ€™t just carrying signs. Seemingly half the Occupiers were openly smoking marijuana at the protest, like this guy who kept bogarting his joint. But since they most likely all had their fraudulently obtained â€œmedical marijuanaâ€ cards, the cops just let them get away with it.
One of the people on the Tea Party side emailed me after the protest with this first-hand account:
â€œMany of us actually got sick from the dope smokeâ€¦yeah, wimpy TPersâ€¦but Iâ€™m serious, they were blowing it over at us on purpose. At one point I mentioned to the young smokers, â€œHey, I thought you guys were all about clean air? Your killing my carbon footprint.â€ BTW, w/ all of the medical cannabis signs, I didnâ€™t see too many people who looked sickly. Mostly young and healthy OWS types."
