Even as they went to Obama's pre-election speeches with GUNS and interrupted him every other word, even as they hung out in public "rallies" with their bretheren, all loaded with GUNS and looking as if THEY were occupying Iraq, did police ever bother THEM? Even when one of their jack-booted thugs stomped a woman's head into the curb, did police ever bother THEM?

No?

Well. Isn't THAT interesting.

2. Where did the tea partiers squat for weeks in same place?
Any rapes or deaths at Tea Party rallies? What about drug sales? At what rally did they shit all over the place?

As far as the head stomper, well he was arrested and charged with a crime.

As far as carrying firearms, well where they did that was in jurisdictions where it was perfectly legal to open carry.

6. That's debatable, with the hackable voting machines now used.

7. And, when did they hold protests that lasted for weeks at a time?
Never. Their Hoverounds would never hold a charge that long. But, yes, the guns, and their threats against the President were overlooked, particularly by the hypocritical MSM. There is definitely a huge double-standard all around.

11. I'll give you that. But OWS protesters don't openly flaunt guns
standing around like the US Army, and don't infiltrate political townhalls/meetings while armed with weapons.

I'd think that would be seen as more of a threat than weeks-long occupations of unarmed, peaceful groups.

It's an attitude on the part of PDs, OHS, etc. I find - well, interesting.

12. Apples and oranges
The teabagger rallies were brief afternoon gatherings, which ended in time to make it to the early-bird dinner specials.
