The large, metal-framed “safety tent” — which will be guarded by an all-female patrol — can accommodate as many as 18 people and will be used during the day for women-only meetings, said Occupy Wall Street organizers.
Talk about rebuilding from day one. They've got the basic tenants of state-sanctioned force and the risk of harriers and bandits absconding and abusing women.
Soon they'll discover agriculture.
Also this is in New York City where legal ownership of self defense tools (from handguns to even tasers and such) is only for agents of the state and the very highest of the elite.
But why would someone need a tool that can inflict massive pain and physical damage no mater the physique of the user?
Allahpundit stresses the seriousness.
Let it sink in: Their protests now need rape shelters. This is actually happening. And New York City lets it go on.
This can’t be repeated enough: With a few exceptions, foremost among them the New York Post, the coverage of OWS protests compared to the coverage of tea-party protests is the worst media double standard in recent history. Nothing compares, because nothing else involves this much distortion on both ends of the coverage. It’s not just that most press outlets (like the protesters themselves) look the other way at depravity happening inside Obamaville, it’s that for years they treated the tea-party movement as some sort of feral mob that was forever on the brink of rampaging through the streets — like, say, Occupy Oakland just did. If you missed it when I posted it last week, go watch the ad the DNC ran in August 2009 when tea partiers first started showing up to town halls on ObamaCare. That set the tone. We began the year with tea-party pols being smeared as killers over a shooting they had nothing to do with and we end it with actual rapes being shrugged off by the press because they’re bad PR for a movement they support. Disgrace.
Remember this next time you hear the media click their tongues over a protest they don't like or when they gush over one they do like.
