Occupiers Revealed: Common Criminals and Thugs

Occupying a Jail Cell

Three “Occupy” protesters were arrested and charged with hate crimes and robbery in Oakland on Friday after hurling epithets and generally battering a woman who asked them not to protest in her neighborhood.  They took her wallet, but she was able to break free from the thuggish threesome long enough to get away and call police, who arrested the assailants in short order.  While not clear from the Reuters article, it seems unlikely that the woman had been part of the “1%,” offering some substantiation of what has been alleged all along:  The Occupiers are nothing but garden variety hoodlums who have adopted a political excuse for their behavior.

According to the police:

“She was surrounded by three protestors and battered as they yelled vulgar epithets regarding their perception of her sexual orientation,” Oakland Police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said.

The female victim was not identified except as a 20-year resident of the neighborhood.

“Her wallet was taken during the crime,” Watson said. “The victim broke away from the group and called police, who were able to arrest one suspect near the scene.”

What this reveals is how the “Occupy Movement” has relied upon the recruitment of thugs to swell its ranks.  This isn’t a movement against the top one-percent in wealth, so much as a movement by the bottom one-percent in moral standing.  The Occupy movement has continued to lose the support of the American people as many more incidents of this sort have dominated the news from the various protest sites.  That fact may help to explain this, in the Reuters article:

“An Occupy Oakland organizer could not be reached for comment on Friday evening.”

The Occupiers have lost all ability to control their would-be movement.  Instead, due to the ugly behavior of its generally thuggish members, Occupy organizers are ducking the press. With a history of burglary, rape, sexual assault, robbery and murder, as well as rioting to their credit, they have finally begun to full reap what they have sewn in terms of public perceptions.  While there are plans for a repeat of Occupy come Summer, and into the Fall, it just may be that their time is up.

Most of the public seems to think so.


Occu-Pests Vote to “Liberate Oakland”

What Democracy Looks Like?

In the latest story of the bizarre sense of  inflated self-importance of so-called Occupiers, these loons in Oakland have actually voted for a proposal that would seem to instigate a complete shutdown of the city.  Of course, I realize this is California, so I suppose it’s possible they could make this happen, but  I want to know from these totalitarians: On whose authority? In whose name?  By what right do you claim to have the authority to shut down the city of Oakland in order to carry out your protest?  They are planning this action for November 2nd.  I think it’s clear that these people are prone to violence, prone to dictatorial demands, and clearly a mob of Bolshevik ne’er-do-wells who have designs on overthrowing our nation.

Let’s take a look at their proposal as posted on their website, shall we:

We as fellow occupiers of Oscar Grant Plaza propose that on Wednesday November 2, 2011, we liberate Oakland and shut down the 1%.

We propose a city wide general strike and we propose we invite all students to walk out of school. Instead of workers going to work and students going to school, the people will converge on downtown Oakland to shut down the city.

All banks and corporations should close down for the day or we will march on them.

While we are calling for a general strike, we are also calling for much more. People who organize out of their neighborhoods, schools, community organizations, affinity groups, workplaces and families are encouraged to self organize in a way that allows them to participate in shutting down the city in whatever manner they are comfortable with and capable of.

The whole world is watching Oakland. Let’s show them what is possible.

Bear in mind that they actually voted on this.  They actually claim the right to shut down a City of four-hundred thousand people on the basis of a vote among 1607 people, some of who are undoubtedly not residents of Oakland.  If you wonder about the legitimacy of their claims to being the “99%,” you’ve just had it answered:  They are able to count votes in their pathetic crowd, and yet they are unable to recognize that they are not even 1% of the town in which they’re rallying.  This is really disturbing, not because their math skills seem flawed, but because of what it indicates about their mind-set:  They are willing to interfere with the lives and livelihoods of 400,000 fellow citizens on their say-so.   Who elected them?  Who appointed them?


This is what “Democracy” looks like?

Looks more like a mob trying to justify its actions by pretending to act democratically.

Here’s a video on youtube of their vote:

These are dictatorial thugs who believe they have the right to impose such things on an entire city of people, most of whom signify their disagreement by their absence. I certainly hope that the authorities there, famously liberal, remember that this crowd of ne’er-do-wells do not speak for the citizenry of Oakland.  This is just one more bit of evidence to show you who these people are, and what they believe.  When they run around chanting “we are the 99%,” you can know with certainty what they must know too:  They’re lying.

Occupy Wall Street: Fail

Occupy Oakland Out of Control

The Occu-Pests are beginning to realize that while they’ve been camped out in Zuccotti Park, and elsewhere around the country, they’ve merely provided a distraction from other news that has permitted banking to go on as usual.  As I reported here over the week-end, the actions of Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, and JP Morgan should have caught the attention of anybody concerned about the continuing threat of a US debt crisis, but everyone is distracted with Gaddafi’s death, and several other over-hyped issues, including the Occu-Pests.  The problem is that the Occu-Pests are mostly Marxists, being organized by people friendly to the administration that is actually carrying out the very policies the Occupiers seem to oppose.

What they haven’t figured out, yet, is that they are being used as a distraction.  The longer they sit in their tents and march in the various venues around the country, they’re being made into the bad guys because they truly are a nuisance, and some lesser proportion of their number are prone to violent acts and vile behaviors.  In short, they’re shooting themselves in the foot.  Each day they remain on station, they are decreasing their impact and merely giving cover to bad government policies.

Last Friday, on Rolling Stone, one of these Occu-Pests laments that “Washington still doesn’t get it.” I’ve got news for the poor fool: Washington “Gets it” quite well, but you, on the other hand, do not.  Washington understands very well that the longer you occupy Wall Street, the more cover they will have.  At the end of his article,   Matt Taibbi posits this:

“If anyone thought OWS has already done its job, and Washington has gotten the message already, think again. They’re not going to change until the protesters force them to change, it seems.”

This is maniacally self-aggrandizing, and it’s also delusional.  “Force?”  Does Matt Taibbi really believe that they can “force them to change?”  They number in the hands-full of thousands, but even a mass march of perhaps a million or more Tea Party types was unable to “force them to change.”  Or is Mr. Taibbi admitting of a willingness to use actual violence?  If he is, he has even less grounding in reality than I had suspected.  There is a simple fact that Mr. Taibbi doesn’t understand, but he eventually will, one way or the other:  The protesters at OWS are being used.  Their numbers are insignificant to anything but a publicity stunt, a photo op, and a distraction.  This sort of protest will have no effect against the greater will of the American people.  The very people who have helped to create the OWS movement have been using them as cover for their own agenda right along, but the OWS folk have been too naive to realize it.  George Soros, who is indirectly behind much of this, must be laughing at the harrumphing going on among the OWS folks about their lack of impact.  They’re having exactly the impact they were supposed to have:  While they protest, Soros and his pals are looting the future of this country and the OWS people shriek at Wall Street.

It’s sad in one sense while fitting in another that as they protest for notions none of them seem too firmly to grasp, they’re being played by the very people who have organized them there.  They still believe they’re an organic protest, but it’s laughable to suggest, and besides, to the degree there is any real grass-roots activism, it is being steered by those who have stage-managed this entire side-show.  Now here’s the real problem they face, these poor Occu-pests: The day is quickly approaching when they will have out-lived their usefulness, if it hasn’t happened already, and then the people who helped organize them are going to make examples of them in the name of “maintaining order.”  Watch and see what happens.  If these poor fools stick around very long, the powers who brought them forth will use agent provocateurs to instigate violence, and it will be made to look like the Pests themselves initiated it.  George Soros reportedly met with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly in New York, so it’s possible that the hammer is about to fall on the hapless Occu-Pests.  I’m not certain that this isn’t part of what caused the riot Tuesday night at Occupy Oakland. I think the natives are getting restless, and the provocateurs are pushing things.  This is how they will create the spectacle in which the Occu-Pests will be sacrificed.  It’s sad to think that these poor knuckleheads have been so thoroughly duped by their leadership, but there you have it.  There’s a reason they’re known as “useful idiots.”
