Now that the coast is clear and there's no threat of jail, Vanderbilt's College Republican club is planning to show up at Legislative Plaza to protest the protesters.The counter-protest is set for 7:15 p.m. tomorrow, and we're sure Occupy Nashville will welcome any new media coverage the young Republicans might attract.

College Republican president Stephen Siao says, “The demands of Occupy Nashville protesters will do nothing but add to the burgeoning debt already on my generation’s shoulders. We will be the generation paying for their greed. This is generational theft.” Actually, we weren't aware that Occupy Nashville was making any demands beyond the installation of a Porta-Potty or two, but whatever.

Also from the press release:

College Republicans believe we should be encouraging job creation and the entrepreneurial spirit rather than stirring up petty class warfare. They see this as a fundamentally misguided and fraudulent movement. “These protesters should be aiming their complaints at the White House rather than Wall Street and the state legislature; President Obama’s policies have created this mess,” says senior Garrett Sweitzer.
