You know, I’m getting a sneaky suspicion that maybe Jesse Jackson doesn’t know that much about Jesus and is more interested in political agendas than in the Lord’s agenda. Maybe, that is. Details:
Veteran activist the Rev. Jesse Jackson compared the global anti-capitalist movement to the U.S. civil rights struggle, the battle against apartheid in South Africa and the fight for Indian independence during a visit to an Occupy camp in London on Thursday.
“Jesus was an Occupier, born under a death warrant, a Jew by religion, born in poverty under Roman occupation,” the two-time candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination told a crowd near Saint Paul’s Cathedral. ”Gandhi was an Occupier, Martin Luther King was an Occupier, (Nelson) Mandela was an Occupier.”
Look, Jess, Jesus never stayed where he wasn’t welcome. He still doesn’t. The Occupy trash, on the other hand, is defined by their insistence on staying where they aren’t welcome.
Additionally, comparing the Occupy vermin to Jesus, MLK, and Gandhi is appallingly offensive. Jesus died for the sins of the world, while MLK and Gandhi were willing to die (and did so) for their cause. There is not a SINGLE Occupy scumbag who would die for his/her cause…especially since they have NO FRIGGIN’ CLUE what their “cause” is, other than to commit acts of crime in their zealous attempts to avoid responsibility for their own lives and to live off the public teat in perpetuity.
Jess, I say this with all the love that this Christian can muster: You suck.
But hey, where would you get this crazy idea that the Occupiers were a bunch of filthy, disgusting, unemployable miscreants? Oh, I dunno.
Sanitation workers wearing hazmat suits and masks moved into City Hall park Wednesday to clean up tons of trash, debris and human waste after police evicted the 2-month-old Occupy LA tent camp and arrested almost 300 people in a mostly non-violent pre-dawn raid.
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said the cleanup and repair to the damaged lawn and park facilities would cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars, possibly more than $1 million.
So how does the 99% live? Apparently, like this:
By dawn, trash, flattened tents, strewn clothing, bedding and the stench of urine were the legacy of the Occupy LA.
“It’s so contaminated that it doesn’t even make sense to sort it out,” said Jose Garcia, sanitation superintendent of the city north central district.
An estimated 25 tons of trash and debris were to be carted away by mid-afternoon. Workers were finding bottles of urine throughout the camp.
Who knew I was a 1%-er, huh?
“I appreciate you guys making your point; let me go ahead and make mine,” Obama said before continuing his speech. “I’ll listen to you, you listen to me, OK?”
A few minutes later, Obama acknowledged the Occupy protest movement again, saying: “You are the reason I ran for office.”
I guess he ran for public office to guarantee that lice- and flea-infested unemployable socialist miscreants who rape, defecate in public, threaten to firebomb Macy’s, and push old ladies down stairs need a proper advocate. He cheerfully lets them know that he’s their guy.
Both viewers of Mike Brzertdvasewdsmsdwrfsfsfnski (or whatever the heck her name is) couldn’t agree more. From Newsbusters (video clip at link):
Shades of “Special Comment”! In a rant worthy of Keith Olbermann at the height of his Miss Precious Perfect histrionics, Mika Brezinski began today’s Morning Joe by tearing into Newt Gingrich for his recent suggestion that Occupy protestors should “get a job, right after you take a bath.”
It wasn’t merely Mika’s words: “arrogant, disgusting, sickened.” So strongly ran Brzezinski’s rage that more than once her voice quavered and she seemed on some sort of emotional brink. Video after the jump.
Yeah, where does Newt get the crazy idea that these are a bunch of filthy, lice-ridden, flea-ridden, street-crapping losers? Oh, wait…
Gratuitous hippie bashing from Mr. Gingrich warms my heart. I just may vote for this guy yet!
You scumbags MUST be proud! Real tough, #sshats. Excerpt:
In the middle of thousands of protestors yelling and chanting — some kicking and screaming – CBS 2’s Emily Smith found little school kids trying to get to class. Nervous parents led them through the barriers on Wall Street. The NYPD helped funnel the children, anything to ease their fears while some protestors chanted “follow those kids!”
“These guys are terrorists, yelling at little kids,” one father said.
“For them it’s horrible. They’re afraid of all the crowds. We’re not even able to get through. They’re just, he’s … very afraid now,” a mother added.
Bloomberg, you are about as useful as boobs on a boar, pal.
But hey: They are the 99%, right? Because 99% of this country terrorizes children on their way to school, I guess.
Short version: Occupiers want to destroy our country, and Tea Party wants to restore our country. Occupiers are violent and destructive, and Tea Partiers are non-violent and constructive. Amen!
Video (about 1:36 long): Newt tells biased media the big difference between Tea Party and Occupiers
Multiple varieties of parasites: lice, fleas, and Occupiers themselves. Details:
Poor sanitation and evidence of lice and fleas at the Occupy San Francisco encampment endanger the health of everyone in the overcrowded, makeshift tent city at Justin Herman Plaza, public health officials said Wednesday.
“Everybody that’s been down there knows it has to change,” said Dr. Tomas Aragon, a public health officer who has been conducting inspections twice a day at the Occupy SF protest. …
Yeah, really. Why can’t San Fran clean up these losers and go back to the pristine sanitary condition it was before? Pfffff-bwahahahahahaha!
San Fransicko: You reap what you sow.
When asked to comment Wednesday about the deaths and crimes that have occurred around Occupy protests being held across the country, Rep. Maxine Waters said “that’s life and it happens.”
“That’s a distraction from the goals of the protesters,” Waters, who says she supports the Occupy movement, told CNSNews.com after an event at the Capitol sponsored by the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Video and full comment at the link, so don’t take my word for it.
Yeah, Maxy. Let’s take a look at just a couple of things that “happen” at Occupy sites:
The Associated Press reported that there have been at least three deaths recently at or near Occupy encampments. A man was shot and killed near the scene of the Occupy camp in Oakland, Calif. A man reportedly shot himself at the Occupy camp in Burlington, Vt. And a man was discovered dead in a tent at the Salt Lake City, Utah, Occupy camp.
At the Occupy L.A. site—in the city where Rep. Waters’ congressional district is located—five people have been charged with crimes, according to the Los Angeles Times. These include a man who allegedly exposed himself and masturbated in the presence of children.
Hmmm. So exposing yourself to kids and playing “tug-of-war with the cyclops” is all part and parcel of the Occupy movement? OK, got it. Thanks for the clarification, Max.
This is the same woman who said “As far as I’m concerned, the ‘Tea Party’ can go straight to hell.” I’d say that since there haven’t been ANY arrests at Tea Party events, and since no Tea Partiers of which I’ve heard have killed anyone or dropped trow in front of children, I’d say that the Occupiers are a better representative of Hell than anyone on the right.
Score a victory for public health and private property! Details:
Finally. Common sense and decency — not to mention ordinary rules of sanitation — reign downtown.
For two months, the lunatics had taken over the asylum, as if the right to use a park as a public outhouse was in the Constitution.
But yesterday, in a display of courage I didn’t think he possessed, the mayor got it.
He ordered the cleansing of festering Zuccotti Park.
Sexual assault, rape, thievery and the scamming of gullible people into donating their hard-earned cash for nefarious purposes — including the possible purchase of drugs — had become not the exception but the norm at the Occupy Wall Street enclave. For weeks.
Yesterday evening, Supreme Court Judge Michael Stallman proved he got it, too. He upheld the ban on tents, bedrolls and all manner of paraphernalia there.
It will no longer be easy for the Occupiers to occupy. Not if they don’t want to catch pneumonia or tuberculosis, which has broken out at Occupy Atlanta. …
A judge ruled Tuesday that the protesters could return to Zuccotti but could not set up camp with equipment that the city said created numerous hazards. Police raided the site early Tuesday morning and confiscated much of their camping gear.
Protesters were allowed back into Zuccotti Park Tuesday evening but were banned from bringing tents, tarps, generators and camping equipment after a judge sided with the city following a surprise overnight raid of the Occupy Wall Street headquarters.
“Individuals who attempt to enter the park carrying these items may be refused entry,” an NYPD chief bellowed through a bullhorn as several hundred demonstrators filed back into the plaza after a tumultuous day.
The key component of the ruling (PDF):
The parties dispute whether the First Amendment applies to the actions of the owner in enacting the rules. For purposes of this application, the Court assumes that the First Amendment applies to the owner of Zuccotti Park, thus obviating petitioners’ request for a hearing as to whether Zuccotti Park is traditional public forum, or a limited public forum. Assuming arguendo, that the owner’s maintenance of the space must not violate the First Amendment, the owner has the right to adopt reasonable rules that permit iUo maintain a clean, safe, publicly accessible space consonant with the responsibility it assumed to provide public access according to law.
The Court is mindful of movants’ First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and peaceable assembly. However, “[e]ven protected speech is not equally permissible in all places and at all times.” (Snyder v Phelps, 131 S Ct 1207, 1218 , quoting Cornelius v NAACP Legal Defense
& Ed. Fund, Inc., 473 US 788, 799 .) Here, movants have not demonstrated that the rules adopted by the owners of the property, concededly after the demonstrations began, are not reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions permitted under the First Amendment.
To the extent that City law prohibits the erection of structures, the use of gas or other combustible materials, and the accumulation of garbage and human waste in public places, enforcement of the law and the owner’s rules appears reasonable to permit the owner to maintain its space in a hygienic, safe, and lawful condition, and to prevent it from being liable by the City or others for violations of law, or in tort It also permits public access by those who live and work in the area who are the intended beneficiaries of this zoning bonus.
Contrary to what these smelly, disease-ridden, filthy, unemployable savages stated, you do NOT have a constitutional right to set up camp on private property and use it as a community commode. Kudos to the judge for getting this right.
Rapper Jay-Z, who sympathizes with Occupy Wall Street, plans to cash in on OWS movement and keep all the money for himself
Right now there is a slightly heated debate going on in the Abrams Media office as we’ve found a story that somehow intersects the purviews of three of our different sites; Jay-Z’s company, Rocawear, is now selling a t-shirt that says “Occupy Wall Street” with graffiti style lettering modifying the message to read “Occupy All Streets.” A mini scandal has brewed over the shirt as it’s become clear that Rocawear, currently, has no plans to give any of the procedes to the occupiers themselves.
Not big on “spreading the wealth around” like their boy Barry is, huh?
So is Mr. Z really sympathetic to the OWS crowd? I mean, here he is teaching them a lesson in capitalism, and my guess is that the morons will be stupid enough to buy his attire, oblivious to the irony of the situation. They already are clueless, railing against corporations while buying goods and services from corporations.
Either he really is sympathetic to their cause and is just another clueless celebrity who doesn’t recognize his own hypocrisy, or he isn’t sympathetic to the OWS cretins and is simply being a savvy capitalist. If it is the latter, then well played, sir!
But hey, where would you get the crazy idea that the left doesn’t support the troops? From Californiastan:
The mayor of Richmond, Calif., is under fire for her decision to skip a Veterans Day memorial to attend an Occupy Rally.
Mayor Gayle McLaughlin sent an email to the San Jose Mercury News explaining why she would not be attending a Veterans Day salute that included a re-enactment of the launch of a World War II-era ship at the Richmond shipyards.
“I choose to honor our veterans, not only on Veteran’s Day, but daily, but supporting an end to military warfare to prevent further fighting and dying in needless wars,” she wrote. “I am a strong supporter of Veterans for Peace and Iraq Vets Against the War.”
The mayor said that since the city is not sponsoring the Veterans Day salute, she chose to attend an Occupy rally – an event that she has been actively promoting.
The left is reflexively anti-military. It’s in their DNA.
About 5:30 of awesomeness, coated in rich chocolatey truth.
Hypocrisy: the other white meat. Details:
Last week, one or more Occupy Oakland protesters smashed the windows of a Wells Fargo branch.
This week, the group’s general assembly agreed — in a near-unanimous vote Monday — to temporarily place $20,000 of the group’s money in an account at the country’s fourth-largest bank holding company, Wells Fargo Bank.
Whether the decision was an abandonment of the movement’s opposition to big banks or an ominous affirmation of the hold that big banks have on Americans, Twitter was ablaze with outrage last night, as news spread about the 162-8 vote, from which 16 people abstained.
This dovetails nicely with the story about how these leeches are angry at the homeless leeching off of “their” food. See, these mental midgets are angry at…well, they don’t know. Not really. See, they rail against corporations, all while using products and services of corporations. They rail against “the gap between rich and poor” and demand seizure and redistribution of wealth and assets, yet they deplore the thieves and leeches in their midst. They rail against banks, yet they deposit the money people have given them into a bank.
In short, it’s exactly as I’ve maintained all along. The Occupiers are nothing more than a bunch of idiotic young people who have no idea how society works, no concept of the marketplace, no appreciation for private property, and no real purpose. They are a gaggle of unemployable, vile, filthy miscreants (many of whom are engaging in criminal activity) who lack the skills and/or drive needed to succeed in America. Their anger is chaotic, misdirected, and baseless. In short, they are worthless wastes of oxygen who will wind up as ticks on the public teat for the foreseeable future.
Occupy vermin throw bodily fluids, level death threats at vendors who aren’t providing free stuff anymore
Remember, folks: this is the 99%. Details from San Diego:
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.
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.
“Both carts have had items stolen, have had their covers vandalized with markings and graffiti, as well as one of the carts had urine and blood splattered on it,” said Councilman Carl DeMaio.
The damages will likely require at least a complete cleaning if not a replacement of the cart covers, DeMaio said.
In addition to the attacks, the vendors also said they recently received death threats.
At least these cretins didn’t push an old lady down a flight of stairs like they did in DC.
But hey, where would you get the crazy idea that the Occupiers are a bunch of dirty, smelly, violent hippies who are just looking for handouts?
Exit question: Remember when the Tea Partiers threw blood and urine at people, and leveled death threats, and pushed old ladies down flights of stairs, and defecated on police cars and people’s doorsteps, and had sex in the streets, and needed to be fumigated for lice? Remember all that? Me neither.
Like Mickey D’s says: I’m lovin’ it! Details from Portland:
I saw a dirty, smelly hippy on our local TV insisting that Occupiers aren’t a bunch of dirty, smelly hippies. Hey, loser: yeah, you are…and infested ones, at that!
Just remember, folks: this is what the 99% supposedly looks like. Mass vandalism, shouts of “F*** the police!”, etc. Why, they’re practically indistinguishable from our neighbors!
Story and video, lots of video, here.
Remember when the Tea Party folks were called racist? Good times, good times.
But what really struck me was the small number of black and brown people among the marchers. I had to hunt for Brian Johnson, a 40-year-old African-American male who was surrounded by a group of college-age white males wearing bandanas.
Johnson said he is committed to doing whatever it takes to support this cause.
“If we would pay attention to this movement, we would understand that it is not about young white people. It is about all of us,” he said. “A lot of people are struggling when they don’t have to.”
Zakiyyah S. Muhammad was the only African-American female I spotted.
“I’m here because this has gotten the attention of the people who make policy, but I don’t think enough of us has gotten involved,” she told me.
“It’s a funny thing to see white people marching and black people sitting around talking,” Muhammad mused.
“White people are marching for change like we used to do and black people are complaining.”
To paraphrase Kanye West: The Occupy Wall Street type doesn’t care about black people. Or the homeless, either.
Ace lays it down on ‘em:
When you buy a loaf of bread, you are giving up some of your time, in the convenient unit of exchange called money, by which you were paid for your time, for someone else’s time.
This is why virtually everybody works. (Except for that blessed, tiny cadre of people who literally love their jobs and do their jobs almost entirely because they so enjoy it.)
So, these guys work for themselves. When they are compensated for the time they spend at work, they put that money into their pockets, and spend it on themselves (or their families).
And yet the self-deluded, entitled OWS crowd are absolutely insistent on the idea that other peopleshould spend large amounts of time working for the benefit of the OWS parasites.
Imagine walking up to any of these people on the street and ordering them: Come back to my house and clean my gutters, for free, because I want you to dedicate your time towards making my life easier.
Can you imagine the shock? The outrage? …
So does Peter Schiff:
Irony: you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup. Savor the aroma of the details:
The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday — because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters. (How funny is it that the homeless are indistinguishable from your average OWS protestor? - CL)
Some protesters threatened that the high-end meals could be cut off completely if the vagrants and criminals don’t disperse.
Unhappiness with their unwelcome guests was apparent throughout the day.
“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer.
Scarcity of resources? Rationing? Welcome to socialism removed from the pages of academia and put into practice, boys and girls! Sucks, doesn’t it?
See, while OWS is a bunch of freeloaders looking to mooch off of the taxpayers for the rest of their lives, they don’t like the homeless and vagrants and other moochers. See, if you want to get fed, you have to be their kind of moocher!
Exit question: Since the homeless are being excluded from the so-called 99%, does that put the homeless in the same category as the 1% the OWS crowd deplores?
Not just cop cars, mind you, as if that weren’t bad enough. No, now these vermin are defecating everywhere other than toilets. From JWF:
Infuriated lower Manhattan residents went ballistic on Zuccotti Park protesters at a chaotic Community Board 1 meeting tonight while blasting politicians for allowing the siege to continue without any end in sight.
“They are defecating on our doorsteps,” fumed Katherine Hughes, a stay at home mom who has the misfortune of living one block from the chaos. “A lot of people are very frustrated. A lot of people are concerned about the safety of our kids.”
Fed up homeowners said that they’ve been subjected to insults and harassment as they trek to their jobs each morning. “The protesters taunt people who are on their way to work,” said James Fernandez, 51, whose apartment overlooks the park. (Because work is for suckers, right? – CL)
Remember: these are the scumbags to whom Obama says “we are on [your] side!“
Because 99% of the country attempts to stow away on a flight from JFK, right?
Breitbart has the video and the details, but how awesome is it that the poster boy for Occupy Wall Street is living off of a trust fund, managed by Wall Street brokers, set up by his grandfather…all while protesting how bad Wall Street is?
So the OWS folks are the 99%, huh? That’s odd, because I don’t know anyone, much less everyone, who does the following:
- Goes on anti-Semitic rants;
- Vows violent revolution while proclaiming “Long live socialism!“;
- Craps on a cop car;
- Spits on members of the U.S. Coast Guard.
And now, MSDNC hosts are thinking that the best way for the OWS movement to succeed in their goals is…to get gunned down by the cops or the national guard, Kent State style. And to think that MSDNC has a ratings problem!
But hey, where would you get the crazy idea that this movement was anything but a bunch of average Joes and Janes with legitimate grievances?
Excellent column from James Taranto, an excerpt of which follows:
The left got what it wanted in 2008: a liberal president with a sweeping agenda and big Democratic majorities capable of enacting it. The result has been a great and failed experiment in progressive politics and governance. In due course, one hopes, the left will absorb some lessons–but for now, they seem to be suffering a nervous breakdown.
That is one way to understand why so much of the liberal establishment is rallying behind Krugman’s Army, as the “Occupy Wall Street” protests are known. Everything they believe in has failed, so they are turning nihilistic.
Awesome takedown of liberalism’s failed experiment in America, and how the left is coping (hint: not very well).
Thanks to George and The Conservative Manifesto for this:
1. Remember when Speaker Botox said that the Tea Party movement wasn’t spontaneous or grassroots? She’s now saying, of course, that the moonbat-o-thon on Wall Street and elsewhere is definitely spontaneous. If, by “spontaneous”, she means “bought and paid for by unions“, then yeah…”spontaneous”.
2. Anyone else find the humor in the irony? A bunch of losers who are spending their time with “occupation” instead of spending their time either at an occupation or looking for an occupation?
3. The common phrase among these unemployable miscreants is “We are the 99%!” Really? 99% of the nation doesn’t bathe, doesn’t want a job, and wants the government to take care of them for the rest of their lives because they’re too stupid and lazy to take care of themselves? I’m dubious, to say the least.
4. You want to see a dressing-down of one of these loons (albeit a well-dressed, though thoroughly dishonest, loon), on national TV? Answer: Of COURSE you do! Then enjoy!
5. Just a bunch of average Joes and Janes, right? Yeah, right:
Just your typical 99 percenter, right?
