Protesters damage Obama Oakland office
|BLAX NEWS: Occupiers Discard Voter Registration Cards On The Sidewalk Are Guilty Of VOTER SUPPRESSION
Every one of those cards that lay upon the ground is an aborted vote for Obama. The US Justice Department, Civil Rights Division should count the number of voter registration cards that lay on the ground and the amount of blood spilled from the hands of the Obama workers that have to reach through the broken glass to rescue them and then charge the Occupiers with Voting Rights violations in line with this act of voter suppression.
AOL Huff Po - Reports Attack On Obama's Office, Accompanied With A Medley Of 13 Obama Ads - Just In Case Their Readers Get A Tinkling Of Intellectual Curiosity To Ask WHY Anyone Would Protest Against President Obama
AOL Huff Po does a blurb on the broken window at the Obama headquarters in Oakland.
Knowing that leftist attackers have attacked a Progressive President's offices - the fair-minded editors at HuffPo knew they had a problem on their hands. Since "The Tea Party" was not guilty of the attack, it would be counter to the agenda of Huff Po to EITHER:
- Inspect the hateful motivations of the attackers against a President that they favor
- Inspect the President's policies and/or results that have driven otherwise clear thinking Progressives into a state of violence.
Blax News wonders if AOL HuffPo will be allowed to join the "Unity Conference" of Progressive Journalists? They deploy the very same techniques and would benefit from the joint venture collaboration.

Protesters smashed a large window at President Obama's re-election campaign office in downtown Oakland late Friday night, tore down a nearby fence and vandalized cars, according to police, witnesses and video footage.
Staffers and volunteers were inside the Organizing for America office at 1714 Telegraph Ave. when it was vandalized after 9 p.m., but no one was hurt, said a staffer who declined to be identified. The office is a joint effort of the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
When the window was broken, well over 100 people had joined what began as a rally against the city's handling of growing crowds at the first-Friday-of-the-month event called Art Murmur, a gallery crawl centered in the Uptown arts district from 6 to 9 p.m.
Protesters - who included Occupy Oakland activists - said the city was cracking down on vendors and performers who came into the neighborhood during the gallery crawl without permits. Until June, the galleries had closed down a block of 23rd Street, but the approach got too expensive and hectic.
Danielle Fox, who directs Art Murmur and owns a gallery called Slate Contemporary, said of the vandalism: "It's very unfortunate and we're very concerned, because our commitment is that when people come to visit the galleries, they should have a safe and positive cultural experience."
City Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente said the frequency of vandalism at downtown protests was "unacceptable" and hurt restaurants and other businesses.
"It's continuing to be bad publicity for us and the merchants trying to revitalize downtown," he said. "Art Murmur is something that is getting bigger and becoming a destination for people. Obviously, this is something that is not good for the city."
The vandalism happened a little more than a day after someone damaged two Oakland police cars near City Hall and attempted to break a window at a police station early Thursday.
A group calling itself the East Bay Uncontrollables said it was responsible for the attack and called it a reaction to a federal investigation into anarchist activity.
Lauren Smith, a 30-year-old activist, said the goal of Friday's demonstration was to "create a space where people could have their social gatherings without asking permission from the city and the police department."
She said she was not at the rally but watched it live online. She said she did not agree with vandalizing cars, but that the window-smashing at the campaign office was justified.
"People feel betrayed by Obama. ... I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now," she said. "Oakland is a place where people are really struggling. When the pressure is released just a little bit, you see people go after those things that they see as responsible for the conditions."
