All this Occupy Wall Street nonsense has become is an opportunity for these preening douchebags to get some attention. Here you have this paunchy hag smiling for the cameras as she pretends to be a freedom fighter raging against "greed" or something.
Author and activist Naomi Wolf was among about a dozen people arrested on Tuesday night outside of a Huffington Post event in New York.So she writes for the PuffHost and was a guest at the event, yet manages to have herself arrested.
A group of approximately 50 demonstrators from Occupy Wall Street showed up at the event--held at Skylight Studios in Manhattan--to protest in front of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who was being honored as a "game changer" by Arianna Huffington's site.
Wolf, who contributes regularly to the Huffington Post, was a guest at the event. According to Gothamist, the modern feminist icon challenged a police officer's claim that the protesters needed a permit to use a megaphone.
"After numerous warnings that she would be arrested," Bucky Turco wrote on the Animal New York blog, "she ignored the police and was promptly arrested."
You may barely remember this has-been as the woman who used to advise Al Gore to wear earth tones and for some of her comic stylings at the PuffHost.
Early on, Hitler sought legislation that retroactively protected the SS from war crimes. This was a major step to opening the door to the violence against German citizens that followed. The Bush administration has sought to shield its violent interrogators retrospectively from being charged with war crimes.Funny, but I don't recall her getting arrested during the Bush years.
