"Cantor Smears Occupy Wall Street As A ‘Mob’"

Speaking at the social conservative Value Voters Summit today, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) maligned the Occupy Wall Street protests and the wider 99 percent movement as a “mob” that is out to “divide Americans”:

CANTOR: I for one am increasingly concerned about the growing mobs occupying Wall Street and the other cities across the country. And believe it or not, some in this town have actually condoned the pitting of Americans against Americans.

Watch it:

Believe it or not, Cantor has — by his definiton — “condoned the pitting of Americans against Americans” when he endorsed the Tea Party movement.
