How to Write an Occupy Child Abuse Update

Filed under: parenting, politics — Tags: , , , , , , — edge of the sandbox @ 5:21 pm

Glenn Reynolds made it easy.

Step 1: Look up #Occupy fail to pick up the top #Occupy location that had an outburst of violence, death, drug dealing, pimping, confrontation with police or any other shady activity.

Step 2: Google “#Occupy [location]” + parents.

Step 3: Write your post.

Example 1: #Occupy London was taken down by police today.

#Occupy London is upfront about their intent.  They “invited” (their word) mothers and children to participate in occupation.  At the time the call was issued a violent confrontation with police was expected.   This post by Zelda is revealing of the sentiments of occupying mothers:

Hello all,

Would anyone like to meet up/ travel together to the protest at St Pauls, on Weds 26th?

I went to the start of it, on Sat 15th, with my children (aged 1.5 and 3.5) and was struck by the need for more so-called ordinary people to show support, as otherwise it gets dismissed as just the usual suspects (far left agitators etc).

I am impressed that people are braving discomfort, cold and inconvenience to highlight the inequality in our country and I would like to support that (if only for a bit).

Nice of her to volunteer her kids to brave “discomfort, cold and inconvenience” so that the movement doesn’t get “dismissed as just the usual suspects (far left agitators etc)”.  Raising future RP ponds for radical movements — what joy!

Very funny.

Perhaps UK child protective services don’t think that putting children in the frontlines of battles against police endangers the well-being of children.  What they are known for is taking away obese children.

Example 2: Body of a man was found at#Occupy New Orleans site.  He has been dead for at least two days.  Caring occupiers didn’t notice.

What does the #Occupy New Orleans squatter park look like?

Children: They hold up your posters, and they risk their emotional and physical well-being, but they can't vote at #Occupy.

The #Occupy movement actively courts kids.  Recruitment websites are set up, funds are allotted and donations are solicited to put young families in front of the cameras.  Who is responsible for it?  Every participant.  After all, everything that happens in #Occupy squat cites happens with approval of a 90% supermajority of occupiers.  Although those holding the purse strings are uniquely responsible, if the movement welcomes kids to live in squalor, surrounded by filth, drugs and violence, then occupiers approve.

Exit question: Now that #Occupy Zuccotti has a separate women’s section, where do families “sleep over”?

UPDATE: One doesn’t need to go through the trouble of looking up #Occupy Fail, to gather materials about #Occupy child abuse.  It pops up everywhere.  Urban Infidel writes about the general depravity at Zuccotti and posts a picture of little girls holding odd signs.  (Via Zombie.)

Is this plea is directed to the occupiers?

The stars of David look like they were drawn by a child.

Ringo snapped pictures of several enthusiastic underage participants.

See, they have a roof on the wagon -- parents must really care for their well-being.

Well, mommy and daddy look proud.

Like many other #Occupy sites, LA has a special kids section.  Ringo points out that the kids were given art supplies to make signs:

It appears to be a part of the permanent camp.



  1. Those kids are like… what am I doing here?

  2. I read today at Drudge Report how various illnesses have now broken out at some of the Occupy camps: tuberculosis, Norvo Virus, lung disease.

    Parents should not be exposing their children to these illnesses!

    • I haven’t seen Drudge yet, but I do have a post coming up on that. It’s not just that parents are reckless, which is bad enough, but the movement obviously encourages family participation. It’s insane.

  3. that photo of a girl carrying an anti semetic flag drawing makes me sick to my stomach. these people should be fully discredited in the MSM by now. I had a quick glance at ABC news website, and I did notice they had only two OWS headlines, both negative: rape and small businesses being hurt.

    Man I hope these cities run these folks out soon.

    and LOL the method to write about them. Good system you have. Hope your feel better soon, by the way.

    • It certainly looks like occupiers are going home, and mostly on their own volition. At this point one has to be either crazy or greedy to stay there.
      I am better — thank you. Actually I weathered this flu/cold pretty well, but both of my kids had fever.
