Down twinkles: ACORN is paying homeless people to come down here and protest, says OWSer

posted at 5:40 pm on November 2, 2011 by Allahpundit

Another good one from Lee Stranahan, Brandon Darby, and Big Government, starring the same well-spoken protester from last night’s clip. We already knew that New York Communities for Change, a.k.a. the artists formerly known as ACORN, were hiring the homeless as ringers to pad the size of the protests. Fox News reported on that a few weeks ago and further alleged that some of the new hires were being sent out to fundraise under false pretenses. What’s curious about this clip is that “Channing” thinks some of the ringers being shipped in by NYCC are creating problems at the park, going so far as to call one of them an “instigator.” I get why the cops are directing derelicts to the park — it’s a reckless, dangerous tactic, but it serves their goal of scaring the occupiers out of the space — but you’d think NYCC would take five minutes to vet their astroturfers for, shall we say, eccentricities before sending them in to mingle with college kids. As it is, here’s what one cop told Joel Pollak:

It is far from the butterflies and Bambis that the media is trying to portray…

There are many incidents of sexual touching and groping that goes unreported to us, mainly because the alleged victim is either too stoned or high to properly ID them or they “dont want to get the guy in trouble.” One girl, with hickeys all over her neck was brought to us and claimed she was raped….She said she had gotten high and had sex with one guy then sex with the other guy, but when guy #3 tried, she rebuffed him. She later got stoned somewhere else and returned to her place where guy #3 came back and had sex with her (she thinks) but she remembers blacking out and him leaving and her pants off.

A suspect was arrested just a few hours ago. So here’s what we’ve got in the petri dish downtown right now: (1) Actual protesters, many of whom live very comfortably when they’re not busy “raising awareness” (which bolsters the theory that OWS is chiefly a civil war within the upper class); (2) quasi-protesters who simply enjoy the scene or want an excuse to drum 15 hours a day; (3) homeless people and addicts drawn to the park in hopes of free food and a tent to sleep in; (4) ringers hired by NYCC, apparently with little regard for their stability; and of course (5) assorted lunatics and degenerates eager for an audience to scream at and/or prey upon, some of whom are allegedly being directed there … by the police. At the rate we’re going, soon the city will be dropping off prisoners from Riker’s Island at Zuccotti Park. Assuming they’re not doing that already.

Two clips here, one of the interview with “Channing,” the other of the daily delivery of Ben & Jerry’s to keep those revolutionary, corporation-hating bellies full.

Update: Jim Treacher wonders below how long it’ll be until Snake Plissken shows up.

Update: Joel Pollak e-mails to clarify that the suspect arrested today isn’t the same suspect described in Big Government’s post. Duly noted.

Update (Ed): Snake?  Snake Plissken?  I thought he was dead …

I wouldn’t think that. ACORN is a criminal organization.

Homeless rapists getting paid…

Well, it certainly bears repeating, and repeating, and repeating, but didn’t we know this already?

You know who that place needs?

Snake Plissken.

This Channing girl should have her own show.

She thinks the guy said his name was Herman Cain.

Too bad I’ll never purchase anymore “New York Super Fudge Chunk”. Darnit, I really loved that stuff!

All we need now is a documentary narrated by “Randall” (of honey badger fame).

I want to see more of Ketchup myself.

Deaf guy was raped, eh.
Ernie, where were you when this was taking place?

That girl, Channing, looks so familiar to me. An actress, maybe?

Doesn’t that describe most of the Democratic Party?

Chip on November 2, 2011 at 6:03 PM

Channing needs to go home. She’s too smart to be there.

…And, I worry for her safety.

meh, it’s never been much of a secret they’re big ol’ liberals. I cannot go too long without some of that NY Super Fudge Chunk.

JetBoy on November 2, 2011 at 6:06 PM

Their numbers were dwindling so acorn and seiu were paying people to do down there to make the crowd look larger.

These ows people think they are so much better than the homeless? They are not.

NY Super Fudge Chunk

JetBoy on November 2, 2011 at 6:06 PM

Was that flavor created in honor of OWSers crapping on cop cars?

malclave on November 2, 2011 at 6:13 PM

Many of the services and donations meant for the poor are being co-opted by these ows aholes. They have money and homes – the poor and homeless do not. This woman has no reason to complain.

Also, in case of cold snaps, the ows plan to transport their people to homeless shelters. And I’m sure the ows people don’t drink or do drugs. [eyeroll] What a bunch of snobs!

Blake on November 2, 2011 at 6:14 PM

Why are they eating ice cream? It’s cold. Also, weren’t they on a brown rice diet?

Alert Nazi Pelosi. Astroturf has been detected.

It’s called product placement.

So when a guy is molesting a liberal chick, does she tell him to knock it off by down twinkles or point of order?

FWIW: South Park is going to cover the OWS crowd tonight.

1% vs. 99% or Cartman vs. the World.

Always good for a chuckle.

You could disrupt their whole language structure by spreading the word that down twinkles represent the wisdom of older women and up twinkles are for alerting people to the exploitative ideas of young men.

pedestrian on November 2, 2011 at 6:32 PM

A rash of finger breaking will occur at OWS because dudes are tired of being told NO by the women they’re trying to molest.

“Did you tell him to stop?”

-No officer, I couldn’t, he broke my fingers!”

Bishop on November 2, 2011 at 6:40 PM

She said she had gotten high and had sex with one guy then sex with the other guy, but when guy #3 tried, she rebuffed him. She later got stoned somewhere else and returned to her place where guy #3 came back and had sex with her (she thinks) but she remembers blacking out and him leaving and her pants off.

Arrest her for criminal stupidity. What, theres no charge for that? Well then charge her with admited drug possesion and use. Then reminde her that her admitted stoned blacked-out memory and previous slutty behaviour is not going to convince any jury of a charge of rape. At this rate she’ll be safer in jail anyway.

AnotherOpinion on November 2, 2011 at 6:45 PM

She said she had gotten high and had sex with one guy then sex with the other guy, but when guy #3 tried, she rebuffed him.

Because she’s got standards, obviously.

..Jeeee-zus! With people..like..droning on..like that terminally stupid Channing and the..like..constant sugar high from Cherry Garcia B&J’s, and..like..the incessant drumming by the mindless gorts, I would hafta see about getting my brain lanced.

Just to state a long-lived policy of mine, I’d rather make Chunky Monkey from my own feces than pay so much as a dime to the foul, America-loathing corporate villain that is Ben & Jerry’s.

You don’t really have to wonder. He prefered a stoned gal. He was willing to use a gal that he knew had multiple partners, fresh multiple partners. And when told no once, he came back later. How he is much different from #3 guy in line in a gang rape or customer #3 in an hour at a prostitute, I don’t see. I bet both in my example are cleaner than a month long OWSer too. Talk about unapealing.

AnotherOpinion on November 2, 2011 at 8:24 PM

How long before the former head of the IMF (DPK) shows up? Or Bill Clinton? Talk about a wonderful place for them to troll.

PattyJ on November 2, 2011 at 11:08 PM

A lot of the homeless are petty criminals and/or people with … reality issues. People who are sane, non-criminal, and sober, rarely stay homeless for long.

So if you exclude the addicted, the criminal, and the nut-cases, from the homeless pool, there is hardly anyone left to recruit.
