College Republicans to Protest College Democrats Support of “Occupy Milwaukee”

Earlier today, we blogged about a plan by the Marquette College Democrats to drum up support for an “Occupy” event tomorrow under the Bridge at the library.

The actual “Occupy” event, involving leftists from all over, will be Saturday.

The College Republicans will be staging their own counter-protest nearby.

From a press release from the College Republicans:
Milwaukee, WI – On October 14, the Marquette community will see that not all young people believe in the victim mentality of the Occupy protesters. Members of the College Republicans at Marquette will be hosting an information table outside Raynor Library from 10am through 2pm in an effort to drown out those attempting to occupy America. The students will be promoting free market values, limited government, and exposing the lackluster, job-creating performance of the Obama Administration.

Professional protesters and freeloaders that make up the Occupy Wall Street movement has spread to cities across the country. These out-of-touch demonstrators will be continuing their blitzkrieg on American values in Milwaukee on Saturday, October 14th. The College Republicans of Marquette will be making a stand to defend their turf.
So the College Democrats and the College Republicans will be simultaneously holding demonstrations a few paces apart next to the library.

Cool.

We expect everything to be perfectly civil, although a bit of good-natured badinage between the two groups would be entirely appropriate.

We would urge everybody who will be on campus tomorrow to drop by and offer your support to whichever side you happen to favor.

Even asking polite but pointed questions of the side you oppose is fine. But any incivility hurts whatever point you are wanting to make.

And besides, any uncivil behavior these days is invariably caught on video and shortly made visible on You-Tube.

But we don’t see any problems. We expect everybody to have a good time.

If the left's protestors follow their usual pattern, the campus republicans would do well to follow them with self-ID signs and large trash bags to pick up the garbage left behind by the slobs.
This would do very much to define the difference between the parties involved.

Kind of sounds like they're protesting the same corporatism that the Occupy protesters are...That both Republicans and Democrats alike have taken part in.

I don't think that the "Occupy" groups are as homogenous as McAdams implies.

David,

I never said the were homogenous. I have said that the center of gravity is socialist, with a large dollop of airheads who just want what they want (not having to pay their student loans, for example).

Of course, "socialist" and "airhead" do typically go together.
