The ragged return of Occupy

posted at 4:15 pm on March 19, 2012 by Tina Korbe

In a desperate bid to recover the relevance they barely had, hundreds of Occupiers returned to Zuccotti Park this weekend to celebrate the six-month anniversary of their amoebic movement. It was déjà vu all over again.

For hours, the demonstrators had been chanting and holding impromptu meetings in the park to celebrate the anniversary of the movement that has brought attention to economic inequality, as police mainly kept their distance.

But New York Police Det. Brian Sessa said the tipping point came when the protesters started breaking the park rules.

“They set up tents. They had sleeping bags,” he said. Electrical boxes also were tampered with and there was evidence of graffiti.

Sessa said Brookfield Properties, the park owner, sent in security to advise the protesters to stop pitching tents and to leave the park. The protesters, in turn, became agitated with them. The company then asked the police to help them clear out the park, the detective said.

“Most of the people, they left the park,” Sessa said. “People who refused to leave and were staying were arrested.”

At least 73 of ‘em were arrested. These kids never learn their lesson. The Occupy movement might not be broke if they didn’t have to earmark so many dollars for bail money.

More troubling even than the Occupiers’ ignorant attempt to do again what didn’t work the first time, though, was a tweet from a young Occupier that didn’t deign to disguise animosity toward the police.

On Sunday, New York City police were investigating an online threat from a 23-year-old “Occupy”-linked protester who sent a short message advocated cop-killing. The sender, Rusty Braxton of Oviedo, Fla., was later identified from a screen capture of his Facebook page, which also included a photograph of his two firearms.

“We won’t make a difference if we don’t kill a cop or 2,” the message read.

In an interview conducted late Sunday night via Twitter, Braxton confirmed that he sent the message but insisted that his words were taken out of context and that he is not in favor of murdering police officers.

“We were talking about revolutions in other country’s [sic],” he tweeted at TheDC. “Never would I advocate cop killing regardless how brutal they were being.”

Jim Treacher translates the kid’s excuses:

“I didn’t say what I just said. I was taken out of context, the context being that I am not responsible for my own words and actions.” This leader of tomorrow pretty much encapsulates the Occupy mindset. It’s fun pretending to be a rebel until you have to face up to the consequences.

At least this rebel was scrutinized for his tweet, though. The seven AP reporters who covered Occupy’s six-month anniversary couldn’t even bother to mention the many acts of violence for which Occupy is responsible.

Occupiers, I know it might not seem like it to you right now, but you can still be relevant in the future. Here’s how: Own up to the idiocy, apply for a job and aim to get rich yourselves. Ever seen the movie Trading Places? The best way to stick it to the 1 percent is to beat them at their own game. If you’re not willing to put in the hours, prioritize business over pleasure, take calculated risks for the sake of reward, that’s OK, too. Most people aren’t: That’s why they’re the 99 percent.

Who is going to stand up for the little guy?

Let’s hope Bloomberg and the cops learn from their mistakes in dealing with this group of criminals last year – break up the party early and don’t let them take over like roaches.

The little guy would do far better if he learned to stand up for himself, be a man and be responsible for his own fate as opposed to always seeking “help”.

Meanwhile its a new year and guess what TeaPartiers have? VACATION TIME!! Guess I’ll be seeing y’all at the next meeting, after taking care of family and paying the bills.

The only “change” that they’ve brought about is … 6 months more facial hair [women included] and unshaved legs and underarms.

I’m sure that Obamuh is going to spend taxpayer money on giving these Rent-A-Trash permanent funding.

OhEssYouCowboys on March 19, 2012 at 4:22 PM

Well they’ve been occupting their Mom’s basement for years, why would you expect them to go anywhere in 6 months? Not when there’s “free” food, good drugs and rapin to be done! I hope these lowsers hang out until Nov. They have already worn out their welcome, they are a nice little reminder of Barry’s core people.

Lotsa standin’ there, plenty of “little guys” getting added to the list and only getting a lil’ bit of lip service from ya’ll—probably in more ways than one.

Oh don’t be a racist. Why not any person not able to take care of themselves? Further, does it always take the taxpayer to do it? Or can ANYONE help a fellow human being? Do you really need a government regulation that REQUIRES people to take money away from the their own families to help your one individual who may or may not want to help himself?

One wonders….

And how is all that government help working out?

It’s kept them in the gettos, destroyed their families, and kept the down with hopelessness.

Those that have managed to get up and get out have done it on their own with hard work; not by getting handouts from government assistance.

Buy a new calender. We aren’t in the 50′s or 60′s. And yes, any liberty loving American would still say the same thing back then. Stand up for yourself. Nobody ever gains true liberty without standing up for themselves whether or not others decide to stand with you.

And BTW, why do you have such an inferior view of blacks as being incapable beings?

APPLYING ALINSKY RULE 4: MAKE THE ENEMY LIVE UP TO ITS OWN RULES. — A “tea party leech” is deemed a “tea party leader” in our local press after he is arrested for rape. This belies that fact that there have been 75 rapes in the Occupy camps, so examples of alternative headlines to suggest in the “Comments” sections of offending sites is offered. “Occupy” is a subsidiary of the “War in Women”: A Tea Party is one of the safest place for women in the world.

I didn’t say what I just said. I was taken out of context, the context being that I am not responsible for my own words and actions.

That’s why blacks have always had it so rough. Once under the crushing control of the government, there is NO WAY to move up. The control has to be in the hands of the individual, to determine his or her own fate, without the contraints dictated by a government official.

MLK had to stand up for himself FIRST before he could seek allies.

The real question is would LBJ have entertained the thought of allying himself to an occupooper?

Therein lies the difference but because you are a Lib the difference of concept will remain unknowable to you.

HotAirian on March 19, 2012 at 4:40 PM

I’ve been studying the “Occupy” movement for some time now. With their ragged return, I have seen numerous homecoming photos of the proverbial “usual suspects”. The Occupy universe is made up of a small core of individual personalities, some of them having gotten exposure through the nearly 24-hour live streaming video they were doing from a makeshift tent at Zucotti Park from September 2011 until their eviction. Basically an around-the-clock YouTube video. I contend that this core of individual personalities in the Occupy movement, specifically OWS, has developed a weak gravitational pull that keeps all of the trash rotating around them. Much like the space junk rotating around the Earth. I have also followed the unwarranted attention they receive from the press, considering the reality of their true numbers.

I mean, honestly … Does one ever just stop for a moment and think of how liberals talk about the conservative segment of the country? From the most affluent to the average commie organizer, they absolutely disdain our intelligence and everything about us.

I just simply cannot imagine what the lefties would say about the poor and down-trodden minorities if they weren’t such a lock in the voting booth. I for one can’t imagine the disgust they must feel in their heart of hearts towards people who aren’t working a decent job, sending their kids to college, etc.

I absolutely guarantee you that all the outrage for wimmin and minorities goes only as far as vote counting time in Nov. every 4 years.

One of the consequences of such notions as “entitlements” is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence. –Thomas Sowell

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Barack Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.

Blaming the Prince of Fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President. –Author Unknown

It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance. –Thomas Sowell

 

OWS’ers will never ever realize their full potential. It is a leaderless resistance movement with no cohesive goals whatsoever, other than their pathological penchant for entitlements, bursting at the seams with the bored and lazy, deranged lunatics, criminals, predators, junkies, and self-loathing trust fund babies drowning in their white elitist guilt. OWS will never amount to anything more than a laughingstock.

SD Tom on March 19, 2012 at 5:03 PM

An interesting video I saw the other day.

MLK wanted the best, not only for “The Black Man” but for all of God’s children. Al Sharpton and others like him are just a bunch of race baiters. As are all liberals including the in the WH.

It would appear to me that if you really think your cause is just, you don’t wait for the warm weather.

Where the OWS were kicked out of their Obamavilles, they claimed they were being persecuted, and played the victim card.

When they were allowed to stay in their stinking encampments, the public saw what OWS really was: a band of degenerates, clueless college students, rapists, drug addicts, bums, spoiled trust funders, anti-semites, anarchists, and professional leeches.

the flea baggers are coming, the flea baggers are coming. Hide your tents and all camping gear, UNLESS you have one of those portable showers…

This is merely a spring traing game for the occutards.
Next game probably April 15th to protest taxes, Then May
1st – Mayday- commie Christmas.

Season opener in Chicago for NATO summit.

The fact that G-8 relocated is irrelevant, It’s about the protest, not what the protest is about.

Obama now has his civilian army.

I guess this is the downside of the beautiful weather NYC has been experiencing. If it was cold and sleeting, the streets full of dirty slush, they’d all have stayed home.

MLK asked LBJ to stand up for black people.

LBJ stood up for black people to get their votes.

Quoted in the link, from Ronald Kessler’s Inside The White House:

“I’ll have those [blacks] voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One –

“Who is going to stand up for the little guy?”

Who exactly is the “little guy” supposed to be, and how exactly is having a bunch of brain-dead Marxists make fools of themselves by revealing their Marxism supposed to help him?

We don’t live in a feudal society where socioeconomic status is determined at birth. We live in a society where anyone with the character and competence to achieve their goals can do so.

Winners win, losers whine.
