Video: Occupy movement takes itself … literally?

posted at 10:25 am on March 22, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

I know the Occupy protests really want their movement to spread. I just didn’t know they mean that literally:

Video footage obtained by The Daily Caller shows Occupy Wall Street protesters dumping large amounts of human urine and fecal matter around Lower Manhattan on the night of March 14.

A surveillance camera caught several people, who have been identified as members of the Occupy movement by the New York Police Department, pouring a large bucket of waste down a flight of stairs at the corner of Nassau and Cedar Streets. Around 20 minutes later, one man entered a Chase ATM vestibule on Water Street and dumped another large container of the repulsive mix.

It’s apparently not enough that they fester in disease and filth amongst themselves. A few of them want to share that disease and filth with the entire city. This isn’t a joke, either; human effluvium contains bacteria that can create serious illness if people come into contact with it, and this vandalism will have to be mitigated with more than just mops and a bucket.

On the other hand, it might be the most honest form of protest yet from the Occupy crowd. They don’t want to build anything — they just want to crap on everything around them.

Idiots but to the lsm they are awesome!

They’re just like the tea party…..NOT

cmsinaz on March 22, 2012 at 10:28 AM

Where were they supposed to dump it? There weren’t any police cars nearby.

BlueCollarAstronaut on March 22, 2012 at 10:29 AM

The very personification of their “movement”.

Tony737 on March 22, 2012 at 10:29 AM

This surely (??) is a crime, right? And since they are caught on tape literally in the act, obviously the NYPD is arresting them, right? Right??

This was just in protest of that “Toilet Tax”.

Apparently OWS has a new strategy:

Let cholera and dysentery win where we have failed.

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on March 22, 2012 at 10:32 AM

At one point, we considered ourselves better than Medieval times, because we had modern sanitation while in those days people poured buckets of human waste into the streets. It appears that the Occupy crowd really do want to return us to all the glory of those dark ages.

rbj on March 22, 2012 at 10:32 AM

How come this site hasn’t made any posts about Trayvon Martin? I mean that’s one of the biggest pieces of news around, and hotair acts like it doesn’t exist.

nonpartisan on March 22, 2012 at 10:37 AM

NYPD should bring out some water cannon – after 1st stopping off to fill their tanks at the nearest sanitation plant.

RobertE on March 22, 2012 at 10:38 AM

They are spoiled brat trust-fund babies. They think they can just do whatever they want, and if they hold their breath long enough someone will take them seriously.

These acts are simply the most honest expression of their “movement” in the most literal sense: They are there to dump crap all over everyone else who worked for what they have.

Neo on March 22, 2012 at 10:39 AM

Those are acts of terrorism. They are knowingly, willingly, and intentionally using biological WMD.

Lets see how they like occupying Gitmo with their terrorist friends.

But no, the DOJ won’t do anything to their friends.

Disgusting.

Throw. The. Book. At. Them.

UltimateBob on March 22, 2012 at 10:40 AM

Exactly what is it about this Occupy movement that they seem to be totally fixated on pee and poop? Sounds like they would be more at home occupying a waste treatment plant. At least there, they would be in their element.

pilamaye on March 22, 2012 at 10:41 AM

Just communists being communists.

They should have their noses rubbed in it and then beat to within an inch of their lives and left to rot in their own festering mess.

I’m sure the MSM will obsess for months over the misbehavior of OWS.

The main culprit in this is WASHINGTON, D.C.

This is sickening. These people, and their supporters, think that there is a point that should be taken seriously in all of this? Huh, really?

I think that you’ve really reached the limit of your argument when you resort to behaving worse than a monkey flinging his poo.

I agree. I think this is just the warmup act for what they are planning for later. These poop-spreaders are merely trying to spurn anarchy, destruction, and for what ends??? Me neither.

Verum Serum, where are you?

This video has huge possibilities!! I have so many ideas, I don’t know where to start, so I’ll make a list.

1. A soundtrack of David Crosby & Graham Nash singing “We Shall Overcome” live from Zucotti Park.

2. A montage of prominent Democrats voicing their support for OWS.

3. A montage of prominent MSM talking heads using the phrase “mostly peaceful” to describe the OWS protesters.

4. Excerpts of Obama’s civility speech.

5. A montage of MSM talking heads describing the Tea Party as an angry mob.

ardenenoch on March 22, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Are these folks raiding portable toilets, or are they planning these acts by having a bunch of people defecate in the same large bucket? In either case, I guess public health is trumped by unimaginative and juvenile thinking. What’s next, flaming bags of crap on bank doorsteps?

Springtime for Occupy! Piven & Lerner’s Six Risky, Strategic Steps Forward for the Evicted Movement

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/springtime-for-occupy-piven-lerners-six-risky-strategic-steps-forward-for-the-evicted-movement/

Two of The Blaze’s favorite leaders of civic unrest, arch-liberal sociologist Frances Fox Piven and SEIU labor organizer Stephen Lerner discussed how Occupy Wall Street will pivot to a far more local, intimate occupation this spring after being evicted from their public squatting grounds with rubber bullets and crews in post apocalyptic hazmat suits. In an in-depth interview with Democracynow.org, Piven and Learner lay out five integral steps that Occupy will be taking this spring to keep a pulse going.

It is biological warfare, and this an intentional attack against a bank in particular and capitalistism in general.

These are not “community organizers”. These are Communist agitators.

And they should be disciplined accordingly. Their acts of biological terrorism are worthy of jail time.

Perhaps these Occupy minions need to occupy New York mental health facilities instead of the streets.

You have to be a quite a few french fries short of a happy meal to pull a stunt like this.

MessesWithTexas on March 22, 2012 at 11:23 AM

The mayor is to blame for this continuing crap (pun intended). Bloomberg’s first job is to keep the city safe which involves maintaining the order necessary for a civil society. However, he’d rather regulate salt in food.

It’s almost like having a CinC who would rather play golf than defend US interests…

CorporatePiggy on March 22, 2012 at 11:23 AM

Actually it was buckets of undelivered Occupy speeches…

dahni on March 22, 2012 at 11:25 AM

This is an act of terrorism using biologic weapons.

Its pretty cut and dried.

BobMbx on March 22, 2012 at 11:27 AM

Gross? yes. Juvenile? yes. Potential health risk? YES x100. This makes it vandalism, terrorism, assault, pollution, etc. I do hope this is investigated and prosecuted. Ironically, they left evidence against themselves behind. If there can be a silver lining in such an act is that I’m betting more and more people will distance themselves from OWS as the PETA kind of organization it is.

redmama on March 22, 2012 at 11:30 AM

Ew. Groady to the max. :p

Someone seriously needs to lock these people away. They are literally behaving like monkeys.

At what point would Wall Street say that they’re quite literally tired of this @#!&, and move to a central city like Dallas or Kansas City that would welcome and possibly appreciate the presence? I’d be thrilled to watch the economic collapse of NYC. It might even lower rent prices.

Transpo on March 22, 2012 at 11:48 AM

I guess we can expect all the fair-weather poopers to come out of hibernation (at their parents’ in the Hamptons) now.

I personally saw these morons crapping up Union Square Park a few days ago. You could smell them from across the street.

TouchingTophet on March 22, 2012 at 12:00 PM

I now know why many Dems (and Odumbo) have embraced this group. They have much in common–they all spread crap wherever they go!

The important point is, was this a ‘mostly peaceful’ public urination and defecation?

jukin3 on March 22, 2012 at 12:37 PM

C’mon people! Statistically, this crime is no different to that of the general population. People transport human waste throughout cities all across America and dump it in public areas. You just don’t read about it because when the Girl Scouts do it, it’s on page c19.

One of the signature characteristics of a severe form of mental illness formerly known as “hebephrenia” is smearing one’s one bowel movements on the walls.

Any psychiatrist who witnessed this kind of behavior would have these people diagnosed and locked up in the mental ward in two seconds flat.

I don’t get it, do they think a rich banker is going to be forced to clean this up? Its going to be the minimum wage earning janitor who will have to do it. You know, one of those 99%ers. I thought they represented all those folks.

Anyone who defends OWS as a group of idealists trying to better the world should have to drink from that barrel.

No crime here. Just free speech. Of course, no tobacco smoker can exhaust his or her smoke as an expression of free speech.

rbj on March 22, 2012 at 10:32 AM

RBJ – it is worse than this. The “progressives” have been steadily weakening one of the landmark political achievements of modern times – the notion that the political elite and the pesantry must abide by the same laws. The environmentalists have been opposed to every source of practical energy (nuclear, coal, oil, natural gas) that powers our modern economy. And they ignore the predations of Jihadists who literally want to drag the world into the seventh century. And now they are going medieval with their sanitation.

Progressives – leading the world backwards to the dark ages.
