This Is What an Authentic Leftie Political Movement Looks Like

Filed under: politics — Tags: , , , , , , — edge of the sandbox @ 12:50 pm

We’ve been there before.  Not at Woodstock or Altamont, actually, because those were only a few days long and tucked away from cities, but in San Francisco with the Summer of Love, which, if we trust George Harrison, was a bunch of ugly, disoriented kids.  Now we have an Indian Summer of Love brought to you curtsey of OWS.

Now they are chanting, cult-like, after High Priest Zizek, apparently, registering their approval for bestiality:

I don’t think they are actually for bestiality.  The Milgram experiment and Stanford prison experiment showed that individuals are capable of blindly following authority figures.  And so Zuccotti Park occupiers thoughtlessly regurgitated whatever drivel the oft-cited guy with a PhD threw at them.  This phenomena is known as anarchy.

And now they are threatening violence.  Check out this racist tweet threat (via Conservative Hideout):

OWS violent threat

Or this thoughtful middle age gentlemen:

ows marxist

How's that for a message?

Or this young lady:

call for violence occupy

And spitting on a member of the Coast Guard (via PJ Mom).  When lefties tell you that they are not anti-troops just anti-war, don’t believe them.

And now they are crying for help:

This monologue is crying out for a companion video, so enjoy:

I’m amazed it took a few weeks for the criminal element to turn up — the cameras were probably some kind of deterrent.

OWC media

I get the impression that if one is at OWS and doesn't want to take a picture of certified nut, he'll be taking a picture of photographers.

Then again, while the cameras are rolling, some are not too shy to take a dump on a cop car (via King Shamus):

ows obscene

I must be with the 1% that doesn't defecate in public.

Always eloquent, and so considerate, he’ll bring his own handcuffs:

When words fail... as always.

Always ready to overdose in some family’s backyard.

But even a broken clock is right twice a day, and so even OWS have good ideas:

ows is right!

I think I might just do that.

And bad ideas from Occupy LA:

It only works if you are hot female

Any luck, buddy?

Some of those doofuses managed to breed with each other, hence child abuse:

Subversive power of capitalist entertainment.  Go Disney!

I spot Ariel on her tiara. One short meltdown, and the doe-eyed Disney mermaid is yours. I bet her parents won't stop talking about the "art" she makes.

Oh, and, of course, there are the racists the major media sweeps under the rug.  As documented by Zombie and Ringo’s Pictures:

Paulistas at OWS

And whose poster could that be?

OWS LA anti-Semitism

Also in LA.

Oh, and this educator, via Reason, via Instapundit:

Incidentally, American Nazis support Occupy.  I mean — doh! — they don’t like the Jewish banksters like any other guy.  I actually saw their website, and I’m not going to link to it.  I’m not sure it’s fair to say that those are fringe elements.  First, the movement is too small to have fringes.  Second, the movement seems to embrace everyone.

Apparently the types who live in tents in city parks for weeks on end have plenty of time to find the inner goddess:

the smelliest cult of the 21st century

If Zizek doesn't fill that void...

Some are planning a trip home:

Occupy Wall Street

Demands met already?

They will go home soon, once it gets cold.  I hope it stays warm long, though, because Democrats will have to keep placating the far left and express some sort of understanding of the “root causes”.  The longer the occupation lasts, the more meltdowns we are going to witness.  This movement is bait for crazies.  People who have lives to live don’t squat in parks, the lumpen “proletariat” does.  And they’ll sit there, egged on by cameras, stewing in their own juices, and getting crazier by the hour.

I’m glad the worst of the protests are in a residential neighborhood of New York City.  It’s the kind of deep blue area where people need to observe what happens in real life utopias.  NYPD should arrest demonstrators who get out of hand, but let them stay until the cold sets in.

The occupiers are, of course, the polar opposite of  the Tea Party.  The Tea Party message was personal responsibility and small government.  The occupiers demonstrate that they can’t control themselves and, therefore, need Big Brother to look after them.  Imagine all the people who didn’t know that they are not supposed to live in their own refuse.  I love the fact that it took a threat of eviction to get them to clean up; they are just like bratty kids.

Of course, there are always people who can’t take care of themselves.  A shrink I knew would always say that only people who self-medicate get addicted to drugs like heroin.  I’m not sure it’s true.  But a good deal of occupiers do, in fact, need psychiatric evaluation and mandatory treatments.  It’s a proper role of government to step in here.

He-he, ha-ha!

Sure last weekend some Democrats and unions tried to astroturf a larger movement out of this freakfest.  But that was last weekend.  Now it’s becoming clear that this is not going to end well, and Bill Clinton is triangulating and telling them to shape up.  Perhaps some of the occupiers are paid for, or whatever, but what we are observing at Zuccotti Park is authentic far left culture.

And sure Soros gave money to Adbusters, the magazine that organized the protest, but that only goes to show that George Soros is wealthy.  I too was once a beneficiary of the billionaire’s largess.  I was working for an organization of the type to which he donates, so we were funded, in part, by his monies.  The irony of it is that it was in the early 2000s, and this was one of the few places in the Bay Area where Zionism was welcome.

Soros gives to Adbusters because it’s a slick little glossy and because, he figured, they will somehow serve the larger leftist cause.  He should be more cautious with his handouts.

  4. if this doesn’t scare the mushy middle and independents to the RIGHT, I don’t know what will.

  5. I hope that when it starts getting really cold, like NYC winter wind whipping off the bay cold, and the kids get cold the cops REFUSE to let them leave.

    You want socialist utopia? Stay kids. Stay. And when you start freezing to death eat the dead bodies.

  6. Angel,
    I think it’s interesting that no Muslims showed up at this one, considering that they usually go to lefty protests. Whatever you say about them, they don’t want to live in a pigsty.

    I like that idea!
