My Fox Boston reported that a female Coast Guard member was harassed and spit on by protesters while walking past the Occupy Boston tent city. The Coast Guard has issued a directive to members to avoid the area, especially when in uniform. Nice.
The Coast Guard in Boston confirmed that a woman in uniform was harassed and spat upon near Occupy Boston protesters.
The woman was walking to the train and said protesters spit on her twice, called her foul names and even threw a water bottle at her.
Now, the Coast Guard is warning all staff working on Atlantic Avenue to avoid those protesters while in uniform.
A spokesman for the protest says it was probably infiltrators trying to make them look bad. If that was the case, wouldn’t it have been caught on video?
Scared Monkeys2e weighed in:
The LEFT likes to compare the “OCCUPY” protest crowd to the Tea Party. Democrats also seem to support the “Occupy” protesters, Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi even stated … “God Bless them”. So this is what the Democrat Party wants to attach themselves to, huh? These are the same politicians that called the Tea Party extremists.
I doubt you’ll hear about this on the evening news, but had it occurred at a tea party you’d never hear the end of it.
