Judging by this statement he made concerning the Occupy Wall Street movement, it seems that indeed, U.S. Congressman and Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Peter King of Seaford, NY hates freedom and is quite matter-of-fact about it.

He is, in my view, quite obviously a nasty little prick who hates all that is good. I wonder how much dirt we can dig up on this man. A heck of a lot, I’d bet.

US Congressman Peter King hates freedom. He's a prick.

The text on this photo, provided by Occupy Milwaukee, reads, (for your pasting convenience):

U.S. Congressman Peter King had this to say about the #OccupyWallSt movement,

“[W]e have to be careful not to allow this to get any legitimacy.” he warned.

“I’m taking this seriously in that I’m old enough to remember what happened in the 1960s when the left-wing took to the streets and somehow the media glorified them and it ended up shaping policy,” he said.

“We can’t allow that to happen.”

I bet he thinks he’s a good, upstanding, patriotic American.

He’s not.

Obviously.

He’s the exact opposite. He’s a shill.

Obviously as well, the good news is, if this Homeland Security Repugnican felt the need to say this on a sick right-wing talk radio show – It’s Working!

A commenter, NoRuleButThree, on a brief article on this matter at PolitickerNY by David Freedlander said it very nicely:

All this shows is that those who would see us beaten, broken and defeated are scared of the power we have. Not the power they’ve given us or the power that we’ve taken from them. But the power that we have always had. WE are the ones with the power to choose THEM. Not the other way around. They may try to silence us. They may try to convince everyone else that we’re wrong. They may try to cheapen our cause by calling us names but the fact still remains that WE are the ones with the power.

We are the numbers and we are the strength. This will end in one of two ways and the choice is OURS not THEIRS.

We can either refuse to give up, refuse to allow the atrocities to continue and force a change or we can give up and crawl back down into the poverty that THEIR systems have created.

Power to the people!

I don’t do the mainstream media thing very much at all, as it just upsets me, but the radio station I listen to plays the “news” reports of the ever more putrid by the minute NPR, or National Public Radio and I have noticed that they have recently started to cover the Occupy events whereas before they did not. Sadly they report only the government line. (Like they do on everything.) For example they stated the other day that the folks on Wall Street forcibly “took” the Brooklyn Bridge – when in reality – they were tricked onto it by the NYPD so that nasty force of paramilitarized storm troopers could have an excuse to arrest a few hundred of them.

I bet this King twerp had something to do with that…

Sigh.

Never Quit, Ever!

ETA: Come to think of it, I am reminded of this quote:

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.” – Albert Einstein

Thanks, Al.
