Repugnant backlash over the growing protests across America

I honestly wonder how some of these Republicans are able to sleep at night. They’re already attacking the people who are protesting the inequality of taxes and corporate power in politics. Cantor says he's concerned by 'mobs' at 'Occupy Wall Street'.

Mitt Romney accused the protesters of engaging in "class warfare." Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called them the "Obama demonstrations.” The only honest Republican, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, encouraged the protests.

Representative Paul Broun (R-GA) accused the Occupy Wall Street protestors of attacking businesses and freedom. Broun said the protestors “don’t know why they’re there. They’re just mad,” and that “I see people angry in my district too. But this attack upon business, attack upon industry, attack upon freedom and I think that’s what this is all about.”

Mr. Broun really needs to learn exactly what the word attack means because if peaceful protests can be misconstrued as attacks, then this nation is in worse shape than it appears.

This growing movement is class warfare brought on by the oppression of the wealthy few. So let the Republicans call it whatever they want. They just don’t get it anyway. The majority of Americans are angry and tired of being marginalized by the power of a corrupt federal government and the puppet-master corporations.
