Video: Occupy Denver Invades BlogCon

I’m at the BlogCon convention in Denver, put on by Freedom Works, and we got a visit from Occupy Denver.

I shot a little bit video of the best part, when the BlogCon attendees started calling for a meeting with Occupy Denver’s elected leader. Which is a dog. Video will be up soon, but here’s a picture:

Apparently the hotel is not impressed and has told BlogCon organizers that they may cancel the event if it happens again. And, apparently, the hotel staff says that they can’t keep the protesters out of the lobby because of…discrimination laws?

What about, you know, property rights?

I’m not sure I understand this tactic. They chant, “this is what democracy looks like,” but is attacking peaceful assemblies of those you disagree really democracy?

Update: Here’s some video shot by another attendee:

Update: Here’s longer video, including video of a high school student and some students (juniors or seniors in high school):

    Hope you all got your vaccinations and are wearing breathing protection. Lots of these Occupados are walking disease emitters.

      Personally I’m hoping for the 1,2 knock out punch of Dysentery and Typhoid, Plague would be nice though a little bit of overkill.

    So let me get this straight.  The hotel can’t keep the protesters out because of discrimination laws, but they’re perfectly able to kick you out?  That makes no sense at all.

      Confuses me, too.  A group paying to use the facility and probably occupy a bunch of beds…so the hotel is threatening to cancel the event because they can’t kick some people out?  Guessing there are never any homeless people allowed to stay in the hallways.  Guessing a group of people couldn’t loiter in the lobby either.  But since they are the uneducated (uhhh…we have a Republic and not a democracy and here’s the difference and are so indoctrinated to get everything and anything they want by crying loudly instead of working their way into the workforce and up the ladder, the hotel can’t make them leave?  For some great commentary, see this guy’s take:
