The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Occupy Portland has graduated to incendiaries

Written By: Bob - Nov• 09•11

A Molotov cocktail is the local drink, and all the want to do is dance.

Portland police said an improvised incendiary device was set off outside the World Trade Center¬† at 121¬† SW Salmon and they’re investigating a possible link to the Occupy Portland camp.

Lt. Robert King said a Molotov cocktail caused minor damage Tuesday night on an external stairwell. The building that was targeted is located one block east of the two parks where Occupy Portland demonstrators have been camped since Oct. 6.

King said “there’s preliminary information available that indicates a connection” to Occupy Portland.

He said that police received unconfirmed reports on Oct. 31 that the gasoline filled bottles with a cloth wick were being made within the Occupy Portland encampments at Lownsdale and Chapman Square parks.

They’re looking more and more like Bill and Bernadine’s old crew every week, so I’m glad Janet Napolitano is focused like a laser on the Tea Party, and groping people in airports.

How long do you suppose it will be before the Occupy movement finally kills someone?

Update: Arrest made.
