“…George Will: ‘I wish the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators long life and ample publicity’…“I disagree with some of the Republicans. I wish the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators long life and ample publicity for two reasons: I think they do represent the intellectual spirit of the American left, but also I remember 1960s. We had four years of demonstrations like this led up to 1968 when the Nixon/Wallace vote was 57 percent — the country reacting against demonstrators, and Republicans went on to win five of the next six presidential elections.”…”
Please, quit complaining about the occupation of Wall Street. Stop infiltrating and making trouble. Just let them be themselves. We want them to be themselves. We want them to be smelly, have no manners, stink to high heaven, defecate in public, litter, and eschew deodorant. Let ’em reek!
Quit crying about the end of the world as we know it. It’s not going to happen. There’s really not much difference between the occupiers and tea partiers – other than hygiene, deodorant, brushed teeth, clean cloths, fairly good manners, lack of littering, and the fact that the tea partiers are potty trained. Other than that, half of the occupiers agree with the Ron Paul Bot libertarians: Audit the Fed!
“…“Stand up for your country! Stop being a bunch of sheep! Stop being a bunch of cowardly sheep! Stand up for your country! Abolish the Fed! Better get those guns ready! We’re gonna have our Spring in America soon! We’re gonna have our Spring! Yeah! America ain’t invulnerable to a revolution! America ain’t invulnerable to a revolution! It can happen here! Get caught on the wrong side! Get caught on the wrong side, get caught against the people, and you’ll see what happens! Stand up for your country against these coward-ass politicians! They don’t represent me! Obama don’t represent me, Bush don’t represent me, none of them represent me! This is a protest, this ain’t no tourist walk! This is a protest! This is a revolution taking place!”
These incitements to violence were not universal. The Socialist Workers Party, who declined to be recorded, sported several signs opposing the war. Some protesters were so strongly anti-violent that they even marched on the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum and “shut it down” because they felt that some of the exhibits tacitly supported war. Signs could be spotted in a large group of protesters who were marching in circles that read simply, “We love you.” The effect was somewhat spoiled, however, by other signs that read “F**k you, disgusting greedy unconscious mosquitos! You are a virus = We will find the cure!”
Even Ron Paul supporters showed up to the protest – 2 of them, to be precise. One of them told FrumForum that she had voted “straight Democrat” up until 2008, but now thought Obama was a “lying son of a b***h” and wanted to End the Fed and bring the troops home.
However, perhaps the most eloquent statements came from a small group of protesters who had set up signs protesting what they saw as unfair discrimination by the DC police force against skateboarders. “Everyone has a unique story, but we all have similar views. We all want equality, we’re not little people, we are people. I don’t see these people as out-of-towners. I see ‘em as my neighbors, because they’re fighting for the same thing that I’m fighting for, which is the right to fight,” said one of these brave souls..”
Once upon a time, The Pink Flamingo’s mother, father, grandparents, aunt and uncle went to Woodstock. They were there antiquing, during THAT weekend. The tales my mother still tells about how filthy it was, the degeneracy, the garbage…. well, this sounds like the 2011 version.
There is a bottom line here. Don’t complain. Don’t worry, be happy, and just let them wallow in filth.
Let ’em reek. Just let anarchists and liberals be liberals.
Eventually public support will wan and the locals will call in the fire department to blast ’em with clean water. We want people to see the difference. Long live the difference!
George Will is 150% correct on this one!
