ABC’s Sawyer Trumpets ‘Occupy Igloos’ at ‘Camp Igloo’ in Switzerland

Diane Sawyer remains enthralled with the far-left “Occupy” protesters. Last October she championed “the Occupy Wall Street movement” by ludicrously claiming “it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries -- every continent but Antarctica.” (There are fewer than 200 nations.)

On Tuesday night, she trumpeted “Occupy igloos” at “Camp Igloo” – in Switzerland, not Antarctica.

Over still shot pictures of a small igloo with an “Occupy WEF” sign draped on it, Sawyer announced on the Tuesday, January 17 World News:

And a picture that caught our eye today. Evidence that Occupy Wall Street campers are about to deploy again. Take a look at this: These are igloos. Occupy igloos. The protesters are getting ready to demonstrate at the world’s fanciest conference, the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland under way next week. And to do it, they are building “Camp Igloo.” We are told it has a working kitchen and ice houses that will sleep up to 50 protesters.

How quaint.

(In a later broadcast she changed her verbiage to this equally ludicrous claim: “It has spread to more than 250 American cities and more than a thousand cities around the world -- every continent but Antarctica.”)
