Occupy movement that Sherrod Brown praises tried to blow up NE Ohio bridge

It was only a matter of time. We’ve watched with disgust as our Senator Sherrod Brown heaps praise on the the nakedly communist movement known as Occupy Wall Street. He has even co-opted their language on his own website. Now, the Occupy vermin are actively engaging in terrorism.

Five people have been arrested for trying to blow up a bridge here in Northeast Ohio.

The final plan allegedly named the Route 82 Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge, which crosses from Brecksville to Sagamore Hills, as the designated target. The IED drop location was reportedly under the bridge on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail near the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Brecksville Station.

The suspects were identified Tuesday as Brandon Baxter, 20; Anthony Hayne, 35; Joshua Stafford, 23; Connor Stevens, 20; and Douglas Wright, 26, Fox affiliate WJW-TV reported.

So who are these guys?
Brandon Baxter is a member of Occupy Cleveland and was previously arrested at an Occupy Cleveland demonstration. Here is a picture of him at the Occupy Cleveland encampment. He also talked about plans to derail a passenger train off of a railroad bridge. Another target was the Valley View bridge, which any Northeast Ohioan will tell you would have caused massive loss of life. If blown up during rush hour, there would have been hundreds dead. Below is a capture of his Facebook page. (Down the page, he lists Sherrod Brown as one of his interests.)

Several of the others also list Occupy Cleveland as their “occupation”. The Occupy movement has been warning of massive May Day protests, but most people have been focused on New York City. It hits a little too close to home when you find out that they could have blown up a bridge and killed people right here in Ohio.

We have denounced these scumbag Occupiers and their crime-ridden demonstrations from the very beginning. But not Sherrod Brown. He embraced the movement, even though they have been involved in thousands of arrests, including rape. But he scolded the people who demonstrate peacefully at Tea Party protests, where not a single arrest has ever been required. When it comes between the freedom-loving patriots on the right, and the America-hating, terrorist communists on the left, Sherrod Brown has made it clear who he stands with.

Update: As of now, May 1st, 2012, Brown’s own website still makes it clear that Sherrod stands with Occupy Wall Street. Click here for a screen capture that Jason archived.
