…and what kind of assholes keep voting for this asshole?
In an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “In The Loop,” the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee was asked if he had an obligation to hear out what the protesters are saying. He slammed the cause, pointing to crimes taking place within Occupy encampments.
“First of all, you try to listen to them and they make almost no sense,” King said. “These are people who were living in dirt, these were people who were involved with drugs, there was violence, there was rape. You’re talking about a small number of people — you could probably get more people in a Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Sunday than you’ve got in Zuccotti Park.”
“I mean, what is their position?” King asked. “They’re mad that other people are making money? They’re mad that there are no jobs in this country? Or not enough jobs? All of us believe that. We’re trying to find a way to do it. You don’t do it by living in dirt. You don’t do it by carrying out rapes. You don’t do it by carrying out anti-American slogans.”
