Tag: OWS protests
If you are not bored or turned off yet by the OWS crowd, we now have another incident that shows us what these people are all about, and it ain’t pretty but hits home:
SAN DIEGO (CBS) — A pair of Southland street cart vendors who were forced to shut down their businesses after “Occupy” protesters vandalized their carts are hoping to get some help from local residents. KNX 1070′s Tom Reopelle reports a fundraiser in the Gas Lamp district in San Diego on Monday night is aimed at helping two vendors get back on their feet.
And why did the OWS crowd do this you would ask? Maybe these vendors where part of that 1%? Rich fat cats? Nah, their crime was what the OWS movement is all about:
Coffee cart owner Linda Jenson and hot dog cart operators Letty and Pete Soto said they initially provided free food and drink to demonstrators, but when they stopped, the protesters became violent. And according to one city councilman, bodily fluids were used in the attacks.
They stopped giving the spoiled brats shit for free. If you needed an example of what the OWS movement was about, this is it. Give us whatever we want for free or face the mob. I am glad these goons never fooled me, but there are so many that still think this movement is legitimate in some decent way. There isn’t anything like that. This movement is about those that want to be the “haves” pretending they want to rob Peter to pay off themselves and become the new “haves”, and they are using the greed and envy of the “have nots” to push that.
It’s not a coincidence that supporters of OWS everywhere seem to end up covered in urine, feces, and blood when the mob feels displeasure towards those they feel should be giving them shit for free. This is what decades of “everyone is special” and “everyone gets a trophy” has brought us.
This is what the “social justice”, anti-capitalist, “we hate the establishment” crowd is all about. These are “their people” and the things they do while they are trying to “do good”.
They call the NYPD — and it becomes abundantly clear that the cops down there are sick of the antics. “Every single night it’s the same thing. I mean, some guy was a victim of rape!” an officer snarls. “There comes a time when it’s over. This is a disaster. It’s all we’re doing, every two seconds, is locking somebody up every time. It’s done.
“It’s done,” he repeats. “Occupy Wall Street is no longer a protest.” Scenes like this — and far worse — have been playing out since the Zuccotti Park “occupation” began on Sept. 17. The parcel is now a sliver of madness, rife with sex attacks, robberies and vigilante justice.
That emphasis above is mine. It’s like the lot of them want the world to be a big prison. Lord of the flies writ fucking large. They are now raping guys too. Maybe this is all the shit Biden promised us back when? I guess he knew the plan and let some of the secrets out, and we just didn’t know what he was talking about. Here is what these people are like:
And despite an NYPD watchtower overhead and the entire north side of Zuccotti lined with police vehicles, it is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous places in New York City.
That’s the 99%? Fuck, I am glad I am not one of them. Humanity’s worst, pretending they want to do well, show us what they are really about. Occupy this fuckers. The Alinsky plan seems to be unraveling. Or maybe this was exactly what they wanted? After all, Obama told us he was the one keeping these wolves at bay. The LSM will soon not report anything from these people, because all there is to report is this sort of stuff…..
It looks like one of the DNC tax payer subsidized propaganda arms, even after being defunded, simply will not go away. Who am I talking about? Well the organization previously know as ACORN. Seems they are in the news again and not surprisingly, they are part & parcel of the OWS protests.
Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York — operating as New York Communities for Change — have fired staff, shredded reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for leaking information in an effort to explain away a FoxNews.com report last week on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to sources.
NYCC also is installing surveillance cameras and recording devices at its Brooklyn offices, removing or packing away supplies bearing the name ACORN and handing out photos of Fox News staff with a stern warning not to talk to the media, the sources said.
“They’re doing serious damage control right now,” said an NYCC source.
NYCC Executive Director Jon Kest has been calling a series of emergency meetings to discuss last week’s report—and taking extreme measures to identify the sources in their office and to prevent further damage, a source within NYCC told FoxNews.com.
Two staffers were fired after NYCC officials suspected them as the source of the leaks, a source told FoxNews.com. “One was fired the day the story came out, the other was fired on Friday. (NYCC senior staff) told everyone that they were fired because they talked to you,” a source said.
NYCC spokesman Scott Levenson denied that anyone was fired for talking to the press.
FoxNews.com’s report identified NYCC as a key organizing force behind the Occupy Wall Street protests. Sources within the group also told FoxNews.com NYCC was hiring people to carry signs and join the protests. NYCC — a nonprofit organization run almost entirely by former ACORN officials and employees –did not reply for comment prior to the publication of the initial article, but later posted a statement on its website dismissing the article and denying that it pays protesters.
What? We find out that whatever ACORN now calls itself it is again shilling for the left, with tax payer money involved again, directly or indirectly, I am certain, and that they retaliate against the people that blew the whistle on them? Chicago style, baby! Don’t be too harsh on “The organization formerly called ACRON”, though isn’t alone here. It seems like another DNC financial/propaganda machine is at it too. OWS is about as grassroots and about the people as Johnson’s Gulf of Tonkin incident was legit.
And it’s not a coincidence that the only people reporting on this – that’s why both links come from there – are those that are NOT members of the usual LSM, which I should add is another branch of the democrat party propaganda machine, and the blogosphere. An unholy trinity right there – the LSM, unions, and community organizations – if you will allow the comparison. In the mean time the leftosphere is giving air time to more lies. 15%? Fuck Nancy, what are you smoking and is it medicinal and not illegal? Even the CBO, which I remind you is played by these crooks in the democrat party like a fucking fiddle, at best says, at best I repeat, that it would have been 10%. And I disagree vehemently with their assertion and actually believe that it would have been less than that, and more importantly, that we would have seen an economic recovery by now if these crooks hadn’t wasted trillions larding the pockets of their friends and their campaign coffers.
On another note, watch the LSM make a huge deal about nothing. Remember back when they used to tell us 4% unemployment was a disaster? Heh! Yeah, bullshit from the left is like Herpes. it never goes away.
Wish I can claim I articulated it this nicely:
*_Ineptocracy_****(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least
capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded
with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number
I think the 99 are definitely part & parcel of this ineptocracy: the group electing the morons. Considering I read attempt after attempt by the LSM to present shit like this in the best possible light, while someone burping at a Tea Party rally resulted in clearly false accusations of racism, violence, sexism, cruelty to animals, and chaos and mayhem that they portend will lead to cats & dogs sleeping together and grandma being pushed off a cliff by an evil rich fat cat that needs to keep his $100 bills to light his cigars, shows the double standard and complete lack of honest reporting by these DNC owned advocates pretending to be in the news business.
Here is the horrible truth: we have this fucked up world because the majority keeps giving power to the least qualified to lead, solely because they promise to steal from others to buy their votes, in the process hurting the very people they portend to want to help the most. Sadly, as things keeps devolving, I am now convinced the disciples of Ayers/Alinsky are going to get what they want. Hoepfully those of us better armed and less inclined to go along with this bullshit will prevail. Queue the idiots saying that all is well, make fun of anyone pointing out the problem, and forcefully advocating that all we need to do is take more from the deminishing number of producers, to make all well.
Things are going to come to head tomorrow. In a classic example of the tail wagging the dog (and it could only happen in a city with a weak liberal mayor bent on appeasing the crowds to the detriment of common sense) Occupy Oakland (ohhh, don’t they sound official?) has decided to declare a general strike:
Occupy Oakland has scheduled a general strike throughout the California city for Wednesday. What does that mean? “No work. No school. Occupy everywhere,” the group’s website explains. “Shut down the city.”
And: “All banks and corporations should close down for the day or we will march on them.”
Occupy Oakland activists have not only free speech rights but also the power to stomp on other people’s rights.
Oakland Mayor Jean Quan — a committed left-winger — at first welcomed the protests. But with rats, vigilantism and too much stink, City Hall soured on the ensuing squalor. Too late, Quan discovered that if you give them an inch, they will take Frank Ogawa Plaza. Let them remain downtown and they threaten to trash other parts of the city.
So what is a good capitalist to do? If you own a business in Oakland, what’s the point of opening up shop tomorrow? What’s the point of even going in to work tomorrow? As if times were not hard enough, let’s shut down and damage whatever businesses are trying to make a living, share the misery.
Where before there was at least a modest attempt to keep the chaos (and filth) pretty much limited to Frank Ogawa Plaza, but with a spineless mayor who has given back the plaza to the protestors after the police cleared them out once (Was it Patton who said that he was always advancing because he did not like paying for the same real estate twice?) the Oakland PD is left baffled as to what their role should be.
The Oakland police union released a statement today saying its officers are confused about Mayor Jean Quan’s stance on the Occupy Oakland encampment and what they are being asked to do for Wednesday’s citywide general strike.
“That’s hundreds of city workers encouraged to take off work to participate in the protest against ‘the establishment,’ ” said the union, which represents 645 officers. “But aren’t the mayor and her administration part of the establishment they are paying city employees to protest? Is it the city’s intention to have city employees on both sides of a skirmish line?”
What a clusterfark. The chief of police quit last week over a no confidence vote of that mayor of theirs, she does not have their backs. And tomorrow the whole city could blow up.
One of the smartest guys on the internet is over at PJTV. Bill Whittle has the ability to boil down the common sense of an issue to nice palatable portions, here is his take on snowflake occupiers:
A sense of entitlement, ingratitude, lack of perspective, all correct but add a few more life lessons that mommy and daddy did not teach them:
1)You are not special
2)Life is not fair
3)Government does not owe you a decent wage, a job, a house, a car, or an even a level playing field
4)Those that have made it, that have worked and pay taxes, these folks are not your private ATM’s, whatever benefits you do get from the government, these people pay for and sooner or later they will say ENOUGH, you can fleece a sheep many times but can only skin them once, the prosperous already feel skinned, don’t push your luck.
The one nice thing about trolls, me being a “glass half full” kind of guy, is that sometimes in their delusional rantings, they do stumble upon a story worthy of reviewing. Sure, they get their facts wrong,and even when presented with the facts usually come up with a bass ackwards conclusion (you would too if you barely had 2 firing synapses to rub together) but the initial event that lights their fuse did occur, so we can start with that.
We can all agree that Scott Olsen got his bell rung:
A clash between Oakland police and Occupy Wall Street protesters left an Iraq War veteran hospitalized Wednesday after a projectile struck him in a conflict that came as tensions grew over demonstration encampments across the San Francisco Bay Area.
Scott Olsen, 24, suffered a fractured skull Tuesday in a march with other protesters toward City Hall, said Dottie Guy, of the Iraq Veterans Against the War. The demonstrators had been making an attempt to re-establish a presence in the area of a disbanded protesters’ camp when they were met by officers in riot gear.
Interesting wording ,”to re-establish”, in other words, the crowd, under legal precedent and police protocol, was verbally warned that they were in violation of the law (several ordinances are in play here, from organized protesting without a permit-yes, you do need one, just ask the Tea Party, trespassing, loitering, vandalism, noise or trash violations, blocking public access, even park ordinances, etc). A sufficient time is given for the crowd to comply, two more warnings are given with the last two coupled with a list of actions that will happen if the crowd does not disperse and go home. This particular crowd did initially comply, but some tried to re-establish, and Scott was part of this crowd.
Something (unk. what object) hit him in the head and broke his melon. Some of those rush to judgment types are sure that it was a police teargas canister. Problem is, the crowd was throwing rocks and bottles themselves, so nobody knows:
The good news is that Scott was rushed to the hospital and his condition is improving.
A full investigation (level one, reserved for when officers are injured or killed) is on going, and hopefully they will find out exactly what struck Olsen.
But here is the curious part, both sides are going through extra ordinary efforts to make Scott the focus of this incident, not the initial act. You got demonstrators like this who are attempting to make him out as a good guy. Ditto with the right wing blogosphere, digging deep to come up with some truly nasty stuff, here, here , and here. It’s like if they can drudge up dirt that paints him as douchebag, drug addled, sissie boy who could not hack the Marine Corp., then somehow the tragedy of the incident will be mitigated, and that broad brush can be used to paint all the protesters as snivelling lazy degenerates, maybe even deserving of what they get.
I don’t think this is the right’s (those lapping up the story and running with it) finest hour. Yes, I think some responsibility lies with those dunderheads that not only did not leave but returned, putting themselves in harm’s way by their reckless actions. But nobody deserves getting their head broken.
Crowd control is not something they leave to chance but train for it. Given the volatility of the situation, large crowds, not all speaking with one voice, and many spurred on to violence thinking their unanimity will protect them, a greater tolerance is usually exhibited.
But when the crowd degenerates into bottle and rock throwing (please tell me again how these folks are just like the Tea Party), then the kidd gloves come off, and folks are going to be arrested.
