Protesters shut down streets in Charlotte on Tuesday amid the DNC Convention. The Washington Times reported that officers with  “paintball guns and plastic handcuffs lined the perimeter of East Stonewall Street and South Caldwell Street while cheers of ‘Free Manning, Arrest Barack’ and ‘You are the army of the rich’ rose from men and women sitting and standing in the road.”

Almost one year ago House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appeared to believe the Occupy Wall Street protests was a movement that was favorable towards the Democratic Party.


“The message of the protesters is a message for the establishment everyplace,” said Leader Pelosi back in October of 2011. “No longer will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street,” she added.
