Tea Party Smears Homeless Vet With PTSD In Effort to Discredit OccupySTL

The flailing St. Louis Tea Party, seeing their relevance decline almost to the point of oblivion, is getting desperate to try to discredit the actual grassroots Occupy Wall Street and OccupySTL movement. Tea Party bloggers Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft and Adam Sharp posted the following video with the header "Hippy Fight!"

The altercation, however, was not between organizers of the occupation, but rather between two homeless men, and organizers quickly cooled them down. In fact, one of the men is a homeless veteran who suffers from post traumatic stress disorder. From a friend at OccupySTL:
Ronnie - who was yelling- is a homeless vet with ptsd who was sleeping in keiner since before we arrived. He has gotten in arguments with other homeless people - but hasn't bothered anyone else and has never actually hurt anyone.

Don't expect Hoft or Sharp to have any remorse about using a guy who fought for our country to try to smear the group. In fact, they take pride in the fact that they're deficient in normal human emotions like empathy.
