Eric Cantor “Concerned” About Occupy Wall Street “Mobs”

Speaking at the so-called Values Voters Summit, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor called Occupy Wall Street protesters “mobs,” stating, “If you read the newspapers today, I for one am increasingly concerned about the growing mobs occupying Wall Street and other cities across the country. And believe it or not, some in this town have actually condoned the pitting of Americans against Americans."

Of course, Cantor never expressed alarm at disruptive and divisive behavior on the part of the Tea Party. Cantor knows that the Koch-backed Tea Party's efforts ultimately benefit those for whom he works and pit the interests of the wealthiest Americans against the rest of us.
