According to Cincinnati.com, Covington, Kentucky city commissioner Steve Frank (R) was unusually honest about his disgust for Occupy Wall Street and the similar protests around the country.
“Turn out the lights on the Occupiers, I feel like going Taliban on them!!!” he wrote in a Facebook post.
When asked to explain his comments, Frank further elaborated his harsh sentiments.
Frank elaborated: ”The Taliban, as they see it is resisting occupation. I am resisting the Occupiers and very proud to be a 1%’er. I figured that the irony would be lost on most of the dummies in Occupation Nation who oppose the war in Afganistan because they see us as occupiers. I happen to oppose the war too but for highly different grounds. PS I am proud of our troops and have a son in harm’s way.”
Ooccupy protests have sprung up in at least 72 cities across America, and over a thousand cities across the world. The demonstrations are being held to raise awareness of income inequality, the rising costs of living and the lack of accountability by anyone on Wall Street for America’s sagging economy.

Say ... Is this the same Covington City Commissioner Steve Frank arrested in July for DUI, and who told a court that stop signs don't apply to him?
Maybe with a little less boozahol, Commissioner Frank would feel a little less Taliban. . . .
