From Fox News:
The Secret Service was responding Tuesday night to an escalating protest that may have involved one or more smoke bombs being thrown over the White House fence.
An estimated 1,000 protesters have gathered. No arrests have been made, but authorities are on alert.
Organizers had touted the rally, known as Occupy Congress, as the largest national gathering of Occupy protesters to date and secured a permit that would have allowed up to 10,000 people to participate. By mid-afternoon, the protest appeared to have fallen far short of those goals.
On 9/12/2009, more than a million Tea Party supporters peacefully protested on the mall. They got virtually no media coverage, and every media outlet downplayed the numbers, including Fox News. One thousand OWS protesters show up at their biggest demo yet, and they attack the White House with smoke bombs? They are going to get media coverage but it won’t be favorable. They are the creation of the hard-left. The President is one of them, based on his history and track-record. I don’t get it. I don’t think they get it, either. That’s when you jump the shark.
But I do know the Tea Party movement gets it. No more demos; lots more grass roots organizing. We ain’t jumping no shark!
