Leftists love to get arrested at protests. It must make them feel like adults and compensates for their otherwise very childish behavior.
But new video released exclusively by EAGtv shows the protestors pre-arrange who is to be arrested. That’s right – the arrests are as scripted as a professional wrestling match, at least on the occupiers’ end.
Cameras were rolling in Chicago recently and captured Chicago Teachers Union organizers finalizing plans for who in the crowd would be arrested. That’s right – it was staged.
Comparing lists on clipboards, the footage shows two union organizers in CTU shirts questioning whether a man standing with them would be arrested or not.
Organizer 1: “He said he’s not being arrested. He’s not on the list.”
The intent is clear: Overwhelm the system. Occupy the police. Provoke confrontation. Produce beautiful footage for naïve local TV
rubes reporters. Clog the courts. Gain sympathy from citizens.
But it’s all just a game. And the media is continuing to fall for the ruse.
As more fringe elements continue to emerge in the #OccupyWallStreet movement (the Nazis and Communists recently declared their support), these types of staged activities will continue. But as their actions continue and there is inaction on the part of President Obama and the Congress, look for things to take a turn for the worse.
Sadly, I’m afraid, the teachers unions’ brothers and sisters in law enforcement will be the target.
