Apparently, Occupy DC thinks they are the Amish:
Occupy D.C. protesters started building what looked like a small barn early Sunday in the middle of a park two blocks from the White House where they have been camping out, setting off a series of arrests and a standoff with the police that lasted into the evening.
Ann Wilcox, an observer from the National Lawyers Guild who was in touch with both sides, said that the police had made clear in advance that protesters inside and around the structure would be arrested, and that any delay was simply to safely remove a handful who had climbed on top of the half-built structure.
You know, Occupy DC has a liberal bent. They have a strong belief in government power and regulation. So let’s not forget – let’s *not* forget, dudes – that building a barn, keeping wood, a large structure, for uh, domestic, you know, within the city – that ain’t legal either.
It’s amazing how just when you think the Occupy movement can’t get any sillier, they manage to find a new low.
