Should dedicated police officers be intimidated and threatened by street mobs or attorneys from the A.C.L.U.? Should our first line of defense against criminality and public lewdness or disorder be under siege by those intent on overthrowing our Nation’s economic system?

Yes, according to our country’s founding documents their free speech and right to assemble peacefully is protected. But, it doesn’t guarantee their right to abuse dedicated men and women who have vowed to protect and defend us and our Nation’s Constitution. Nor, should we condone groups like ‘Occupy Wall Street” that target police with rocks, bottles and other dangerous missiles. Neither, should protestors escape condemnation and punishment for spitting on law enforcement authorities or urinating and defecating on their vehicles.

Surely, most Americans consider these and other acts by OWS demonstrators disgusting and repulsive. Not Barack Obama, however. For the first time, an American President has sided with and given his tacit approval to groups bent on anarchy and insurrection. Equally reprehensible is that he and members of his Party also refuse to condemn or criticize blatant expressions of bigotry, anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment by protestors.

In America, even those who are sick and stupid are free to carry signs blaming our economic problems on “Judeo-Capitalists’ or “Zionist Capitalists” or even “Kill Capitalists” if that’s what their warped thinking suggests. But when America’s President and his Party stand mute in the face of outright bigotry, they have disgraced both the Office of President and the United States Congress.
