EvacuateOnWallStreet?

posted at 2:00 pm on October 8, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

You know, I’ve been to a number of Tea Party events.  I’ve seen plenty of national and local coverage of Tea Party rallies and activists.  And while some have accused those activists and attendees of dumping on the poor — unfairly — at least in that case it was meant figuratively (via JWF):

This are the shocking scenes that have led some people to accuse the Occupy Wall Street protesters living rough in New York’s financial district of creating unsanitary and filthy conditions.

Exclusive pictures obtained by Mail Online show one demonstrator relieving himself on a police car.

Elsewhere we found piles of stinking refuse clogging Zucotti Park, despite the best efforts of many of the protestors to keep the area clean.

The shocking images demonstrate the extent to which conditions have deteriorated as demonstrations in downtown Manhattan enter their fourth week.

I’ll skip putting up the picture, but be sure to follow the link for the, er, money shot.  Instead, just marinate in the irony of this shot from CNS News:

 Protestors at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., are promoting a wide range of causes, including saving the planet, even though their protest site is littered with trash and protest paraphernalia.

One sign, lying near a trashcan and a grassy area covered with sleeping bags, plastic bags, chairs, and other belongings, states, “We the People Say Planet Before Profits.”

Lest one think that this is an outlier, the Daily Mail has a few other pictures of the prodigious amount of waste piling up at the occupation.  Like I said, I’ve been at a number of Tea Party events, and the one consistent quality of them is the respect for public property given by the attendees.  They leave the grounds cleaner than they found them in most cases, which probably comes from their reluctance to seize property that doesn’t belong to them.

Business Insider passes along this graphic that further explores the irony, or hypocrisy, of the Occupy Wall Street movement against eeeeeevil corporations:

This would be hilarious, except that we all know who will pay the costs of cleaning up after this literal and figurative defecation, don’t we?  It’s not going to be these slackers.

Rumor has it that it was Paul Krugman trying to take a dump on the cop car; issue arose relating to arugula and how it does not help Michelle Obama’s digestive health program for America. Krugman was supposed to be a “test case” but failed to make it because arugula didn’t produce the desired result. He thought he could do it on a cop car, but…. too much cheese.

/I think it was ABC or CBS… Not sure.

“It was not immediately clear if the protesters were affiliated with the Occupy DC protest that sprung up last week as an offshoot of the larger Occupy Wall Street movement in New York.”

Tea Party Pundits Attend OccupySanDiego Rallyand answer the questions about:

* What the motivation was.
* What they think of Team Obama.
* If it was grassroots or astroturfed.
* The media presence and take on the event.

OT: Wanna laugh? Read this steaming heap in the UK Guardian!

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/oct/07/fox-news-15-years

It’s a piece about the 15 year anniversary of Fox News. Samples:

On election night, it was George Bush’s cousin, John Ellis, who instructed the network to call Florida early for George Bush.

As the 2008 election heated up, Fox – now leading the news cable news pack – also led the way in smearing Democratic candidates. It promoted an article from InsightMag.com claiming Barack Obama had attended primary school at a Madrassa in Indonesia. The story was false, but that didn’t prevent its repetition by anchors on the network.

The story had obvious racial undertones, as did the Fox’s constant promotion of the future president’s ties to Reverend Jeremiah Wright, which Bill O’Reilly referred to as “Willie Horton … times a thousand”

If its first 15 years is a guide, and as long as Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes rule Fox’s roost, the network will be the last place to find “balanced journalism”.

Brilliant Satire! What the Guardian fails to tell its “readers” at the link is who the “writer” of the piece is.

None other than one Matthew Butler, the current head of…Media Matters.

Del Dolemonte on October 8, 2011 at 6:14 PM

It seems the Atlanta Occupiers didn’t allow “Civil Rights Hero” and Congressman John Lewis speak at their event. Looks like they didn’t read the Diversity Guide by which tea parties are judged.

Chavez slams “horrible repression” of U.S. protests
http://ca.news.yahoo.com/chavez-slams-horrible-repression-u-protests-214847992.html

CARACAS (Reuters) – Socialist firebrand Hugo Chavez condemned on Saturday the “horrible repression” of anti-Wall Street protesters

Chavez, who runs for re-election in a year’s time and traditionally ramps up his anti-capitalist rhetoric to try and rally supporters before a vote, also let rip at Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, who referred to the “malign socialism” of Cuba and Venezuela in a speech on Friday.

Could that last paragraph apply to our Dear Leader?

I will also presume these slackers are from the same stock that called police “pigs” back in my day. It is more than apparent in these pictures the “pigs” are not the police.

Coronagold on October 8, 2011 at 8:58 PM

I followed this through to the guardian story; and now I’m confused.

Guardian comments have a “vote up/vote down” system of red & green arrows. The “top” voted comment currently starts:

These are mobs, they are incoherent groups of people who simply have hatred in their heart…typical socialists.

But the protesters are the “99%” as I’ve heard from them for the past week… and only the “1%” could oppose them.

I guess all of the 1%, and almost none of the 99% read the Guardian.

Or the 1% have tricksy computer hackers rigging the voting.

Or maybe the 1% have magical mind control rays that are persuading most of the 99% that taking all the possessions form those who earn them to give them to the unemployed is a bad plan.

Or maybe that the 99%/1% is bad math and their “99%” actually has much less than 50% of the support; and the voting is correct.

But how likely can that be? Occam’s Razor and all; I’m pretty sure that means it has to be mind control rays from those evil ultra-rich.

Sure seems to be a lot of polyester, nylon and other plastics in prominent use by the protesters as well ……….

Their hypocrisy is so deep! How do they figure Apple, Sony, Gap, A&F, and other brands they are sporting make money? me downtown. I didn’t because of the stupid protestors. What a bummer.

armygirl on October 8, 2011 at 2:53 PM

they compartmentalize. They use products that they want the do the things that they want them to do–Apple is a great example. Then they falsely expand their argument to an entity (Banks-Big Corporations) that is such an amorphous concept, that they cannot really explain what their hypocritical beef is with them. They don’t know what they stand for.

ted c on October 8, 2011 at 2:56 PM

In their hypocrisy, their consumption is good It’s yours they don’t like. I once had a discussion like this with a college. After a lengthy discussion about the relative merits of computer speakers at about 20 dollars for his Apple laptop, just for travelling, he had top of the range hifi ones for home, we got to politics. I said I thought it was great that many Chinese people no-longer lived in poverty. He dismissed that because “consumption is bad”.

Whaaaaaaaaa GIMME GIMME GIMME. We have at least 2 generations who never made it past the 2 YEAR OLD phase in their lives. Those TERRIBLE TWO’s. Hurling themselves on the ground, crying and screaming and making absolutely no sense with what they are saying. Throwing their toys around and pooing in their pants.

GROW UP TROPHY KIDS. The party’s over, all the cake is eaten and there’s no more Kool Aide. Blame your Tenured Professors for the high cost of the education you bought with loan that resulted in a JUNK BOND DIPLOMA. Not worth the paper it’s printed on. Better consider a PLAN B because your parents are running out of dough and can’t keep you anymore.

MAYOR BLOOMBERG – wake up this disgusting mess in lower Manhattan is driving away tourists and costing the good taxpayers of NYC a fortune. It’s time to send the WHAAAAAAAAA GIMME GIMME slackers back to their rooms.

I watched as much of the video of the Atlanta protest as I could stomach; it was astounding. Was that repetition technique novel, or is that some new ultra liberal gimmick? What idiots they all appear to be.

GaltBlvnAtty on October 9, 2011 at 11:03 AM

I told my FIL that I don’t want them in NY till these scums of the earth are outta there. My MIL goes on business trip to give seminars about the adoption agency that belongs to the family, http://eaci.com Click to see the adopted cuties!

Our most recent trip we stayed darn in the middle of Times Square (by the red seats!!) So I don’t want them exposed to this filth-not that NY is the cleanest city, but still!

I hope Allahpundit has stocked up on kitteh food. He has to take pics so we can see.

It’s too bad that it is not October 2012. It would be a big help for the Republican candidate.

All this is, is the everybody-gets-a-trophy crowd hitting their 20s. Plus, some commies and old hippie types mixed in.

In antiquity, beseiging armies would often fall victim to plagues caused by unsanitary living conditions. These ‘Beseige Wall Street’ clowns could start their own similar outbreak.

NYC is supposed to get an inch of rain tomorrow (Wed) night, and Wall Street will soon be a damp camp.

Let’s see if the protests are intense in tents, or if these spoiled brats run home to Mommy.

And who will pick up their soggy, stinking garbage”? Probably people working for a “corporation”…
