THE FIVE

Hollywood's Occupy Hypocrisy?

Alec Baldwin supports protest, buys $12 million apartment

 

This is a rush transcript from "The Five," October 31, 2011. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: As "Occupy" protesters wage on, some protesters have truly become adorable. Did I say adorable? I'm sorry, I meant unstable.

Here's FOX 5 News reporter John Huddy, brother of our Juliet, in Zuccotti Park.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JOHN HUDDY, FOX 5 NEWS REPORTER: He is making no sense right now. He's ripped this off the mike. He ripped this off as well and he just threatened to stab me in the throat with a pen. OK? Is this how you treat people who come in here? Is this how you treat the media?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: Oh, delightful.

But can we really condemn that threat when it's for greater good? And yet, the Tea Party didn't break any laws, but weren't their principles the real crime? The kind that offend movie stars in toupees?

Well, here's one now yakking about the protest.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

KEVIN SPACEY, ACTOR: We live in the United States where you can protest. And so, you know, God love `em. And I think it's less about individuals than it is about systemic problem with a system out of control.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: He left that toupee at home.

Oh, yes, another overpaid actor complained about a system out of control. The solution? Buy $12 million apartment -- which is what Alec Baldwin did right after visiting the protest. With places like that, who can blame them if they feel all that liberal guilt?

But I have an idea. Since the protesters have had their gas run generators removed, they must use a stationary bike to charge their battery, which means by hopping on, Alec Baldwin can do his part and lose the fat without spending a precious dime.

So, Eric?

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: Yes, sir.

GUTFELD: I think you have a prop.

BOLLING: I do. You know, it was a big massive nor'easter was coming up the East Coast. And I was thinking, what's going to happen to protesters when the snow starts falling on them. It gets cold? And then, you know, it kind of hit them, but kind of didn't. But then I have a great idea for a real capitalist idea.

I'm going down to the protest and I'm going to sell them hot chocolate and blankets. And the good news is daddy's credit card accepted there. I'll take it. Guess what? The best part is, I'll pay taxes on it.

GUTFELD: I don't think you're really going to do that, though.

BOLLING: Probably not.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST: I think it's not safe.

GUTFELD: Kimberly, this is what interests me about the protest, there seems to be an element of people entering the protest that aren't great. That guy bothering the reporter is one of them. And the protesters don't want to report this stuff because it makes the protest look bad.

So, they're kind in a weird bind, aren't they?

GUILFOYLE: Of course. But they don't want to say someone tried to stab a reporter in the throat. This wasn't the only incident that John Huddy had with this guy. There were other incidents that preceded it.

So, look, obviously, there's going to be some people out there who are lawless and aren't behaving appropriately. But when you look at the sum total in aggregate, there's been a lot of incidents down there. That's why there are cops there, even though Bob doesn't like it, you have to protect the public order.

GUTFELD: Just think, Bob, all the cops are down there. And if you got mugged here on Sixth Avenue, they wouldn't be here to interfere.

BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: Yes, that would be very helpful. First of all, Eric, nor'easters don't come up the coast.

BOLLING: Oh, that's --

BECKEL: OK, just so you understand that. Don't bring that -- don't do a weather service.

GUILFOYLE: Bob is our weatherman.

BECKEL: I'll make this very simple for you. I'm not going to contribute to the slanderous, ridiculous, disgraceful put-down of people who have every right in the world who go down and do their constitutional rights. You're slandering them.

(CROSSTALK)

GUTFELD: How are we slandering them? What did I say?

BECKEL: I'm not talking about it anymore. We shouldn't talk about it in this country.

GUTFELD: Tell me what I slander.

BECKEL: We should not be talking about in this country.

BOLLING: Well, of course, you don't want to talk about it --

(CROSSTALK)

BECKEL: Because you call them communists.

BOLLING: Look, Bob, "Occupy" protests arrested in Texas, California, Georgia, Colorado, Oregon, and the one, the most important one, Greg, yesterday, New York Post reported, a girl said she was assaulted and she said, by the way, two weeks ago, one of our protesters was raped but, quote, "we don't talk about that. We handle these internally."

BECKEL: Three thousand cops and she got raped? I thought these were the best cops in New York.

(CROSSTALK)

ANDREA TANTAROS, CO-HOST: Wait. This is a good use of their time, cops' time? Biggovernment.com put a list of all the arrests.

GUILFOYLE: This is good.

TANTAROS: This is very, very fascinating list of biggovernment.com. They have just a list of every reason people were arrested. There were flyers that you can have sex with animals. There's a man defecating on a police car. There's flyers that say when to shoot a cop.

Let's see another one. Man accused of exposing himself to children. Bob, you were here that day. I checked. So, it wasn't you.

But there's a huge list -- I mean, they are animals. I can't read most of the things on here.

BECKEL: Was the Tea Party guy an animal showing picture of monkey with a bone in his nose? A black guy? Was that acceptable to you guys? How about the Tea Party guy that put a gun to Arizona and took it to Tea Party rally?

(CROSSTALK)

GUTFELD: Here's the thing, Bob. I will set myself in the middle and admit that there are good decent people down there. But they are doing themselves a disservice by not policing themselves. They've got some very dangerous people down there. They've got to work with police or they got to be honest. They can't create their own Sharia law where they say, if you get assaulted, you come to us -- Kimberly.

GUILFOYLE: It's such a great point and John Huddy said the same thing. He said majority of the people that he had dealt with had been accommodating. He was going back down there to do follow-up on the weather conditions and whether or not people were moving out of there, which is a legitimate story. He has a right to be there and report the news of what's going on. So --

BECKEL: I want a report from Eric's story when he gets --

BOLLING: I just want to know -- we probably want -

(CROSSTALK)

BECKEL: Can we stop talking about this?

GUTFELD: Bob, I have to talk about Solyndra. I don't like talking about Solyndra.

BECKEL: I don't like talking about Solyndra either. I mean, how many times do we talk about the ridiculous story?

GUTFELD: As long as it keeps going.

(CROSSTALK)

BECKEL: It's not important.

TANTAROS: But you said it's important.

BECKEL: No, no, these allegations you're making are unimportant. They're insignificant.

TANTAROS: They're not allegations.

BECKEL: If you got 3,000 of your best supposedly storm trooper cops down there, how did anybody get --

(CROSSTALK)

GUTFELD: Don't call them storm troopers. That's degrading.

BECKEL: No, no. That's the best ones. Aren't they the best ones?

GUILFOYLE: Can we go to break? I want to eat some more candy.
