GOP Rep. Peter King: ‘We Can’t Allow’ More Coverage Of Occupy Wall Street

via Andrew Jones, The Raw Story

Add another Republican to the growing list that loathe the Occupy Wall Street protests.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) is upset at the growing movement and the media’s coverage of it, hoping that a modern day version of protests from five decades ago isn’t being recaptured now.

“It’s really important for us not to give any legitimacy to these people in the streets,” said King on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Friday evening. “I remember what happened in the 1960s when the left-wing took to the streets and somehow the media glorified them and it ended up shaping policy. We can’t allow that to happen.”

LISTEN: Audio from Think Progress, which happened on October 7, 2011.

  1. That’s right, Peter King only supports social upheavals if they’re started by the IRA and involve car bombings.

  2. Thanks for the words of encouragement and acknowledgment Mr. King, on mainstream media, saying one thing and doing another, giving the OWS movement “more coverage”.
