American Spectator Writer “Infiltrates” OWS

Right winger leads charge on Air and Space Museum

At far right propaganda site American Spectator (one of the outlets for white supremacist blogger Robert Stacy McCain), Patrick Howley openly admits that he “infiltrated” the Occupy Wall Street protest in Washington DC, posing in his “left wing altar [sic] ego,” and leering at the “attractive 20-year old girls:” The American Spectator : Standoff in D.C.

And notice that Howley was one of the first ones to charge the doors of the Air and Space Museum, and provoke the guards to use pepper spray.

As far as anyone knew I was part of this cause — a cause that I had infiltrated the day before — and I wasn’t giving up before I had my story. Under a cloud of pepper spray I forced myself into the doors. Suspecting that the entire crowd would be able to get inside, I ran blindly across the floor of the Air and Space Museum to find a place to observe, drawing the attention of hundreds of stunned khaki-clad tourists (some of whom began snapping off disposable-camera portraits of me). I strained to glance behind me at the dozens of protesters I was sure were backing me up, and then I got hit again, this time with a cold realization: I may have been the only one who had made it through the doors.

The tourist reaction within the museum — like the reactions of those on D.C. tour buses and sidewalks Saturday — was one of confusion and mild irritation. In the absence of definitive national polling on the matter, that may be the best opinion sample we yet have of this rash of ill-defined, anti-corporate and anti-bailout protests developing across the country. What began on Wall Street is now spreading, and the question still remains: is it dangerous?

Socialist indoctrination methods are surprisingly effective. It’s hard not to get swept up in the Movement when you’re among a hundred foot soldiers — most of them attractive 20-year old girls — marching down E Street toward Freedom Plaza chanting, “How do we end the deficit? End the war and tax the rich!” Whenever the protesters would pass a group of tourists they’d implore them to join, and when a few smiling college kids would hesitantly jump in everyone would applaud wildly.

Just imagine the reaction from the right wing if a left wing protester infiltrated a Tea Party demonstration as an agent provocateur.

Of course, there are no “attractive 20-year old girls” at Tea Party demonstrations, so there isn’t the same motivation.
