The insane, the moochers, the looters, and the parasites have found their movement. And Obama supports it, a marked difference from the millions of tea partiers who peacefully and hygenically protested high taxes and big government. Pamela Hall snapped the scene.
Astroturfing: who is paying for this?
BFH has this:
2. I already reported in an earlier briefing that unions like the AFL-CIO, SEIU, ACORN, The New Party, The DNC, Democratic Socialists of America, TIDES, have been contributing monies, food, supplies, and workers to support these protests. This continues with additional unions joining, as well as Hollywood celebrities. Now, political heavy weights on the left, Congressmen Charlie Rangel and Nancy Pelosi have come out publicly in support of these protests. At the larger sites there are protesters who have come prepared to create disturbances for media attention as well as to “punish” any and all who attempt to quell these slow boiling disturbances. A fair number of protesters have been “schooled in civil unrest.” They actually have attended classes to learn tactics for just such an occasion. Among law enforcement it is known these schools exist. Officers report: the demonstrators will not bathe for weeks which creates a horrible smell you can not imagine unless you have worked such an event; some will put dog or human feces in their pockets to make police searches as obnoxious as possible; they will partake liberally of codeine, or other pain killers ahead of time in order to blunt the pain, or better resist any police attempt at physical control or handcuffing. They are schooled how to scream, kick, writhe and resist wildly at any touch by a police officer; this action plays well in front of cameras and gains sympathy. They are taught to spit, curse vile words and personal verbal attacks, use rocks, and other “less-than lethal” means.
3. The current “Occupy Now” demonstrations are the beginning, the first round in what is to come. These multiple city demonstrations, in essence, are “practice runs” for even larger and more disruptive demonstrations; I am talking the likes of Greece, England, and Spain. These demonstrations will grow in intensity and hostility, and the participants are willing to be jailed. The leaders and organizers of the current demonstrations are practicing non-traditional communication, polishing tactics and logistics, and working on recruitment techniques. Of concern: “satellite riots” and “riots for fun and profit” are a very real possibility. These types of unrest stem from gangs and crooks who organize and “swarm” a business district or set of shops or mall smashing windows, looting stores, challenging police for sport. They have no cause, other than how much damage can they achieve, and how many items for profit can they obtain. The current demonstrations are also costing cash-strapped cities additional money in police department overtime.
Karma is a bitch:
(WSJ) Brookfield Office Properties Inc., the landlord that owns Zuccotti Park, has repeatedly asked the NYPD to keep people from sleeping in it, according to a person familiar with the matter. But police have not acted on those requests.
A spokeswoman for the company said in a statement that the protesters are keeping other people from using the park, violating rules posted after the occupation started against setting out tarps and generally dirtying up the place. "Sanitary conditions," she said. "have reached unacceptable levels." She said Brookfield is working with the city to "restore the park to its intended purpose."
