    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    Apparently King said this during an interview on a right-wing radio program - The Laura Ingraham Show - on Friday 10/7/11.

    It's not a question if they need to fear it, they already fear it as evidence by Reps. King and Cantor responses. Bed wetters.

    You realize this can be used universally to dismiss anything negative posted about OWS.

    Forever.

    Actual marching orders. Out of the horses mouth.

    To prevent the movement from gaining "legitimacy".

    Ingraham.

    This about . 001 % not 99% and they are goof and have no clue about what drives the economy or creates jobs.

    The are headed into a situation they will never win.

    Most of them can't even articulate why they are there or what they want.

    They are products of Obama's class Warfare messages.


    This will end in disaster and they will cause it because they are stupid spoiled idiots, who need to get a job sit down and shut the hell up.

    Something like this isnt looking for legitimacy, its not looking for a clear message...its all about a wakeup call to all the working class that have just been just sitting back like lambs letting a handful of far right teapartiers dictate....its already started to wake them up

    Re: Does the GOP need to fear the 99% Movement?

    Frankly I find it disturbing that Peter King WASN'T apart of the groups protesting in the 1960s.

    What I also find disturbing is how quickly so many on the right are branding these activists as being un-American. Last I checked, using their first amendment right to freely express themselves is 100% American.

    I think the Republicans are already scared.

    But I am cautiously optimistic about these groups. They've acted out stupidly in some cases... the Brooklyn Bridge for example. Still, if their actions lead to bankers finally being arrested and charged for their hands in the world wide economic downfall, I am all for them.
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
