Members Of Denver Occupy Soviet Attack BlogCon

11 November 2011 @ 21:42

In Denver this afternoon, members of the Denver Occupy Soviet attempted to disrupt the conservative BlogCon event.

No one was hurt, but there were many good laughs to be had and some good singing on the bloggers’s parts.

Felisa Cardona of the Denver Post has filed a report here and she shows what a on-the-ball reporter he is by quoting DaTechGuy:

Attendees of Blogcon say they knew Occupy Denver was going to try to disrupt their conference because the group had advertised their intentions on Twitter.

Tabitha Hale, new media director of the conference, said Blogcon was prepared for the onslaught and had purchased Milk Bones earlier in the day for Occupy Denver’s elected leader, a 3-year-old Border Collie named Shelby.

‘We’ve known they were coming for a couple of days,” she said.

The disruption began around 2 p.m. during a data visualization seminar in one of the ballrooms. A few of the protesters tried to charge the ballroom doors to get inside. There was shoving and pushing, Hale said.

But people attending the conference had already started to notice unusual activity by a number of people in the hotel’s lobby and they began to film them, said Peter Michael Dominic Ingemi, a talk show host.

“They started bantering back and forth,” he said. “We all had video. They were filming us and we were filming them.”

Occupy Denver protesters yelled out “We are the 99 percent” and Blogcon attendees yelled back “We want the dog!”

Pete giving his full Catholic name: LMAO. 

The reporter using it: ROTFLMAO.

-Pete has uploaded video and picture of the confrontation here [tip of the fedora to Stacy McCain].

-Stacy has published another posting with links, quotes, videos clips taken by others here.  He comments:

Denver police: Not nearly brutal enough. Why aren’t they beating these hippies unmercifully?

Good question.

-The SooperMexican has over a half-dozen videos from the attempted rush.

-If I were a member of the Denver Occupy Soviet, I wouldn’t try and tangle with Dana Loesch.

    It really is a shame Stacy wasn’t there.
    Mic check:” Why aren’t they beating these hippies unmercifully?”

    That would have made a great chant.
