Occupy protester: “Dude, let’s go get guns”

posted at 2:41 pm on April 23, 2012 by Morgen Richmond

The long-planned revival of the occupy movement is right around the corner, and we already have a new example of the violent rhetoric we’ve come to expect from the ‘mostly peaceful’ group. From where else but Occupy Portland. [Content warning for multiple f-bombs and other raw language]

If I had a f–king AK right now…

I have a solution dude, let’s go get guns.

In case it wasn’t clear, these threats were directed at the police for preventing the protesters from re-occupying the park, which city officials have wisely closed during overnight hours.

Yes, spring is in the air, and unfortunately along with it a return of all the horrors of the occupy movement. But maybe we shouldn’t judge the movement as a whole by a few bad apples. It’s not like any more official voices of occupy are promoting violence against the police. Well, except for this lovely imagery courtesy of OccupyMay1st.org, which is the communication hub for occupiers organizing a national general strike on May 1.

The file name for this image is  “rainbowunicorncopkillwsa”. Yeah, that about sums it up.

And then there is this little tidbit from the latest edition of Ignite (pdf), the official anarchist newspaper in Denver.

On the night of Feb. 20th in Denver, a “young man” described as white or Hispanic and dressed in “a hoodie with patches” was approached by police swine for alleged “suspicious activity” on 17th and Julian. The youth, evidently not the type to take any shit, pulled a pistol, fired a single shot that missed the cop, and fled on foot successfully. No suspect has been apprehended at time of press. The local anarchist community upon learning the news breathed a sigh of relief at the lack of arrests and collectively said “too bad they f–king missed.”

Makes you wonder why a mainstream progressive activist like Van Jones would throw his support behind such a movement. Hmmm.

It’s going to be a long summer.

Considering these wusses are NOT believers in the second amendment and would not actually practice with any firearms they might obtain (too much like work), the casualties will be pretty one-sided. And the police would instantly take off the kid gloves they’ve used with these whiny Momma-boy punks.

Guess who?

Van Jones group plans American’s “Arab Spring” revolt

An Egypt-styled “Arab Spring,” which has put radicals in charge of the government, will be launched in the United States this spring with a war on “corporate power, Wall Street greed and the political corruption of the 1 percent,” according to the group headed by former Obama green aide Van Jones.

“They’re really not going to like the 99 percent Spring,” said Rebuild the Dream in an organizing email Friday.

Comparing the collection of protests last year that are symbolized by the 99 percent campaign and Occupy movement, to those of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., the group said that “we were all inspired by the protesters of the Arab Spring who stood up to totalitarian governments, and inspired the Occupy movement here in America.”

The plan for now is to hold protest training sessions around the nation next week. Over 900 are scheduled so far.

Once ready, the group and dozens of others, notably MoveOn.org and labor unions, will launch the “99 Percent Spring” offensive against government and financial centers.

“We’re at a crossroads as a country. In recent years, millions have lost their jobs, homes have been foreclosed, and an unconscionable number of children live in poverty. We have to stand up to the people who caused of all this and confront the rampant greed and deliberate manipulation of our democracy and our economy by a tiny minority in the 1%,” said Caroline Murray, of Rebuild the Dream Innovation Fund, in the organizing email.

Alleged suspicious activity isn’t so “alleged” when you start shooting at cops.

I’m puzzled by the images on the poster. I admit to utter ignorance of their meanings.

There’s a rainbow, a symbol of the gay and lesbian movement; is this May 1st all about that?

The Occupiers Self-Image is of a Unicorn?! A unicorn is imagnary and non-existent! So, are they claiming that they and their agenda are nothing but imaginary unrealistic entities?

Then, does the police, with the head ripped off by the Fictional Beast, represent Work? (The wording on his uniform?). So, does this mean that the Fictional World of OWS rejects Work?

And, as others have pointed out, how can an anarchy group have anything that is ‘official’ since the basic axiom of their ideology is a rejection of anything official.

Heh – so Van Jones, selected by Obama as one of His Guys, is launching an anarchist movement against the ’1% people’ (those are the people who develop the new technology, set up the industries to produce and market this new technology and pay most of the taxes of this nation). Hmmm.

These disruptions, these violent rampages, will all be associated with Obama. Maybe he thinks that he can align them with the GOP but he’s making a strategic error – they’ll be associated with him, as the rabble rouser, the divisionist of the American people, and as the chief cause of much of the economic morass.

ETAB on April 23, 2012 at 3:02 PM

Would loved to have seen one of those cops do the fake out on the punk with the bandanna, sort of lunge out at him real quick and then stop.

That would kid would wet his pants on the spot, then the cop could just start laughing.

Bishop on April 23, 2012 at 3:03 PM

I think if Obama tries to declare martial law…. why?

I’m sure he realizes that the military hates him. And as many a tin pot dictator has found out, if the only constituency that matters is the military… then they had darn well love you.

Does he think that the military would just gun down the average american? Sure, some hippy freaks, maybe, but I can see lots of “confusion” if a tea party march was happening.

I think the police could beat the living hell out of these Occupy protestors as they kick their unbathed, lice-infested asses out of whatever public park they try to “occupy,” and the majority of the American public would applaud.

Not that I’m advocating violence or anything…but someone (likely their parents) should have given them a firm kick in the ass years ago.

darwin on April 23, 2012 at 3:11 PM

So they’re complaining about the lack of diversity in the police?

They only had white cops there because they didn’t want their police force to feel uncomfortable being the only people of color at your protest.

Seriously, you’re going to stand in a group of nothing but scruffy white guys and complain about diversity? How did you manage to avoid having any minorities at all in your liberal protest?

Were you charging a poll tax to join the protest or what?

My lunch of a Wonder Bread and mayonnaise sandwich with the crusts cut off had more diversity of color than your protest… but you’ll complain about someone else?

… some days it’s fun to point, laugh, and mock. This is shaping up to one of those days.

gekkobear on April 23, 2012 at 3:13 PM

I’m praying the OWS crowd will come back in full force as the weather gets warmer. They’ll be that much smellier and dirtier. Obama couldn’t possibly be stupid enough to think that a Spring/Summer sequel of rapes, arrests, property damage, millions of $$ in overtime for cops, mountains of human feces, etc, etc, is somehow going to help him get re-elected. But I’m sure hoping that he is.

I think the record shows they haven’t the mental faculties to organize anything without the free heroin. But maybe it would keep them occupied and away from the rest of the populous.

Just because their ridiculously high college tuition has to go up even more by $1,800 to pay for Obamacare, and they can’t get a job because Obama’s Green Bundlers are scamming the country, and choking our economy from growing……come on kids repeat after me mmmm mmmm mmmm Barack Hussein Obama. Obama, Obama, Obama. Yes we can. We are the people we have been waiting for. I like Pie :) “Wash Rinse Repeat” LOL!

Occupy protester: “Dude, let’s go get guns”

…does he have Eric Holder’s number and address?

Portland, Oregon – California’s Canada, they have sowed, and now they shall reap.

Dr Evil on April 23, 2012 at 3:53 PM

Wait, they want a general strike on May Day (the International Communists’ day)? What are they going to strike? None of them have jobs! ROFLMAO!

GWB on April 23, 2012 at 3:54 PM

You do know that, long before the Occupy movement started, protesters have an extensive history of violence against Portland Police. They openly joke about it, too.

Christien on April 23, 2012 at 3:44 PM

Yes, I do. Does that appear to be the case in the headline, though? The kid saying “if I had an AK” was more appropriate for a headline.

Be fair in all your dealings. Hypocrisy is the fastest way to undermine one’s credibility.

Well, I hope Neil Young will remember, the southern man don’t need him around anyhow.

Roy Rogers on April 23, 2012 at 4:01 PM

That being said, why do these commie anarchist rainbow killers always prefer an AK over an AR? They’re pieces of crap propped up by commie romanticists.

Durka-Durka on April 23, 2012 at 3:37 PM

Remember, these tards know nothing about guns. All they know is what they hear from the Alphabet News networks, who tell them that AKs are the “weapon of choice ™” among drug dealers and street gangs, so they think an AK is a quality piece of hardware.

Fine with me…. By the time they figure out how to switch the safety to the “fire” position, the SWAT teams will already have their laser sights drawing dots on their targets.

And then there is this little tidbit from the latest edition of Ignite (pdf), the official anarchist newspaper in Denver.

So, in an anarchist environment, who decides that something is official?

Moral relativism gets you nowhere. These spoiled brats are all yours, bigot.

Wow! Looks like it was Joke Day at Barber’s College too!

Wander on April 23, 2012 at 4:07 PM

Suddenly an old ditty I used to see at a friend’s home in their bathroom takes on a different flavor…

If you sprinkle violence when you twinkle, be a sweetie and wipe your dirty seatie.

I know, it’s a stretch.

I’ve seen this one more than a few times:

We aim to please.

You aim too, please?

TugboatPhil on April 23, 2012 at 4:10 PM

Don’t you just love that the BIGGEST MOUTH doesn’t even have enough backbone to show his face. A very good example of Chicken SH**.

IlonaE on April 23, 2012 at 4:11 PM

It’s going to take a fair quantity of alcohol to purge this from my brain.

Yakko77 on April 23, 2012 at 4:12 PM

Occupier man
Guy Fawkes mask on your head
Don’t forget
What rules for radicals said
Radical change
Gonna come at last
Now some cop cars
Are burning fast
Occupier man

If the unabashed commie truther Van Jones is ‘mainstream’ then I am the Queen of Rumania.

The Sanscoulottes were never known for their opulent uniforms, or cleanliness either.

Vashta.Nerada on April 23, 2012 at 2:54 PM

“Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm observes that the sans-culottes were a ‘shapeless, mostly urban movement of the labouring poor, small craftsmen, shopkeepers, artisans, tiny entrepreneurs and the like’.[9] He further notes they were organised notably in the local political clubs of Paris and “provided the main striking-force of the revolution”.[9] Hobsbawm writes that these were the actual demonstrators, rioters and the constructors of barricades. However, he also argues that sans-culottism provided no real alternative to the bourgeois radicalism of the Jacobins.[9] From Hobsbawm’s perspective, the ideal of the sans-culottes, which sought to express the interests of the ‘little men’ who existed between the poles of the bourgeois and the proletarian, was contradictory and ultimately unrealisable.

And, “sanscoulottes” hardly describes the upper-middle-class, trust fund babies who make up the bulk of the #owsers. The closest one can find to that are the homeless who are attracted to the free food, free booze, free drugs. And when those run out…so do the homeless.
