EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Blogger Andrew Breitbart to Occupiers: ‘Stop Raping People!’
Conservative blogger-star Andrew Breitbart lashed out at Occupy protesters outside of CPAC, the mass annual gathering of conservatives, in Washington, DC on Friday night. Campus Progress reporter Emily Crockett was on the scene and captured video of Breitbart losing it, screaming at the protesters "Behave yourselves!" and "Stop raping people!"
During the exchange, which occured around 6:15 p.m. on Friday, Breitbart calls the demonstrators "freaks and animals" before being politely shooed away by hotel security. [Update: Looks like it was security, and not police officers, who tried to move Breitbart away.] Shortly before his appearance, the occupiers clashed with officers outside the hotels entrance, resulting in some tense moments with police and hotel security beating back and coralling the crowd.
Check out the exclusive video clip from Campus Progress:
Breitbart is known for his far-right blogging efforts, including being the first to post inappropriate photos sent by then-Rep. Anthony Weiner via Twitter.
