The Deeply Conservative City Of, Er, Oakland California, Forcibly Evicts Local Occupy Wall St. Idiots

Oakland, California? The city that elected Ron Dellums and Jerry Brown Mayor, the city represented by Barbara Lee, one of the most liberal members of Congress decides to go all Richard Dailey on the Occupy Wall St. rabble?

Ok then.

Police said they fired the tear gas on protesters in Oakland, California, after the crowd threw paint and other objects at officers.

The crowd of about 500 people defied calls to leave an area of downtown Oakland on Tuesday, according to police. Protesters had camped for weeks in several areas in the city, including near City Hall, police said.

...

"There were a series of safety conditions, including numerous reports of fighting, assault and threatening/intimidating behavior" at the camp, police said in a statement. Medical responders could not get to the scene to provide medical care on at least two occasions, and fire and police also could not get through.

"Sanitation conditions worsened with frequent instances of public urination and defecation, as well as improper food storage," the police statement said. "The existing rodent problem in the park was exacerbated, and authorities were unable to control it because of the campers' presence. Graffiti, litter and vandalism also posed problems, police said.

Atlanta also cleaned out their Obamaville (I think it was Andy who coined that term).

This is the movement the Democrats have pinned their hopes on?

Yeah, good luck with that.

Remember when tea party rally were shut down by force because of sanitation issues? Good times, good times.
