OWS 99% Resent Feeding the Homeless

They say they’re the 99% protesting against the greed of the 1% filthy rich. So it’s strange, to say the least, that the 99% have no compassion for the people at the rock bottom of American society — the Zero Percenters with no income, no assets, not even a home.
Selim Algar and Bob Fredericks report for the New York Post, Oct. 27, 2011, that the Occupiers are getting resentful about feeding “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.
OWS volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for the moochers who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day.
In protest, for three days beginning yesterday (Oct. 28), the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.

To show they mean business, the kitchen staff refused to serve any food for two hours on Wednesday in order to meet with OWS’s “General Assembly” to air their grievances.
“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer. A security volunteer added that the cooks felt “overworked and underappreciated.”
Protesters got their first taste of the revolt within the revolt on Wednesday when the kitchen staff served only peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and chips after their staff meeting.
Organizers took other steps to police the squatters, who they said were lured in from other parks with the promise of free meals.
A team of 10 security volunteers moved in to the trouble-prone southwest section of Zuccotti Park in a show of force to confront them. Some arguments broke out as the security team searched tents — but no violence erupted.
Overall security at the park had deteriorated to the point where many frightened female protesters had abandoned the increasingly out-of-control occupation, security- team members said.
Rumors swirled that one homeless man had pulled a knife in a dispute the night before — and that there had been yet another case of groping.
But the fight isn’t just between the Occupiers and the moochers. Melanie Eversley reports for USA Today, Oct. 28, 2011, that fights are breaking out among the Occupiers, “so much so that one corner of Zuccotti Park has emerged where protesters say they won’t go for fear of their safety.” Police officers have been warned of “dangerous instruments’ being concealed in cardboard tubing.”
Sadly, it looks like Zucotti Park is no Woodstock 2011.

Do Occupy Protesters Even Know What They Want?

Occupy Los Angeles protesters are so ignorant, they signed a petition demanding four things that we already have:

  • A currency backed by the government, and not by gold.
  • A central bank to fund the government and fix prices.
  • A 35% income tax for the wealthy.
  • Government aid for housing, e.g., FHA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Obama, Lovechild of Saul Alinsky

Design by BKeyser

Michael Walsh has a good article in the National Review of October 18, 2011, warning us that the Occupy Wall Street movement is “the Full Alinsky, brought to you by the same malcontents who have been awaiting this moment for more than 40 years. It’s been a long time wandering in the desert for the Sixties Left, but this is their moment, this is their time, as somebody or other from Punahou once said.”

Saul Alinsky

Walsh goes on to narrate his encounter with “the Great Man himself” in the fall of 1967 when Alinsky was doing his “community organizing” in Rochester, N.Y.  “His target was the Eastman Kodak Co., and his human battering rams were members of the city’s black community, which had exploded in a riot in 1964. In the wake of the unrest, Rochester was already visibly on the slide when Alinsky got there, whipsawing both the black neighborhoods…and the useful idiots of the Rochester Area Council of Churches to hack away at the city’s then-prosperous business community and its WASPy leadership.”
Walsh points out Alinsky’s tactics:

“Alinsky rode into town on a one-trick pony that the Left has since turned into its warhorse: Agitate one side’s grievances, and appeal to another side’s decency and gullibility in order to provoke the establishment, whose reaction will unite the other two. Then the community organizer charges in on his nag-turned-steed and proceeds to set the rot in motion under the banner of ‘progress’.

Alinsky dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer

It is the very devil’s work, and Alinsky certainly made a splendid devil: unctuous and whiny at the same time, and always casting himself as the real, heroic victim standing for progress, when in fact he was a particularly nasty, cowardly kind of cultural vandal.

[…] Setting the template, Alinsky ‘organized’ a front group called FIGHT (the martial imagery so beloved of the peaceful and tolerant Left always makes me laugh) — Freedom, Integration, God, Honor, Today — and then induced guilt-ridden white liberals to join the ‘Friends of FIGHT’ to finance the scam; the reference to ‘God,’ coming from the man who in part dedicated Rules for Radicals to Lucifer, was a nice touch. 

But the key to Alinskyism is the whipsaw, a constantly shifting ‘moral center’ that can argue both sides of an issue at the same time. Thus Alinsky’s love child, Barack Obama, can boast of being rich and siding with the ‘99%’ simultaneously; attack him as one and he’ll say he’s ‘really’ the other. Just look what the Obama administration is doing now, claiming to suspend the ‘CLASS’ act of Obamacare while the president swears to defend it. Intellectually absurd — but emotionally pitch-perfect: Barry as the eternal outsider, battling dark forces inimical. For Alinsky always needs a villain, even if the villain is Alinskyism itself. But what do you expect from a political philosophy that claims up is really down, in is really out, and black is really white?

Alinskyism forces the Right to always be on defense, shadow-boxing in a hall of mirrors against a foe whose moral turpitude it refuses to credit.

If Alinsky stood for anything, it was, like Lucifer, destruction; the Left’s rage is animated by its lust for demolition, and the sooner the Right stops accepting its pretensions, the quicker the real battle can finally be engaged. […] somebody should turn the tables, and instruct the Right how to use his principles against him. It’s the only way to beat his ghost — and his hate-filled love children.”

So, did Alinsky and his community organizing actually help Rochester?
“Once a glorious monument to hard work and creativity, the city that gave the world Kodak, Xerox, Bausch and Lomb, Ragu spaghetti sauce, Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass,” Rochester today “is just another post-Alinsky ruin, shorn of its heritage and condemned by its weather. If you want to see the future of America under the shade of Saul Alinsky, Rochester is a good place to start.”

OWS Protester Wants You to Pay for His College Tuition

And the reason?
Because. Just because I say so!
Interviewer: “Why should anyone pay for your college tuition?”
Protester: “Why? Because these millionaires are getting a lot of money, just out of greed. You know, they’re exploiting people. Lower class people. Middle class people.”
Interviewer: “How do they do that?”
Protester: “Just through…Well I guess it has to do with the government as well. For example, we get taxed more than they do.”
Interview: “That’s not true.”
Protester: “Not true?!”
Interview: “This country has the highest corporate tax rate in the world…. And also, one percent of the population pays 40% of all the taxes.” ….
Interview: “Why should anyone pay for your college tuition?
Protester: “Why? It’s just, it’s just my opinion.”
And that, my friend, is the Socialist Mentality: “What’s yours is mine. And what’s mine is mine.”
H/t my dear friend Sol, who points out that the protester is wearing a $375 Burberry scarf.

Susan Sarandon, OWS Hypocrite

Definition of hypocrite: 1: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion or 2: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.
Limousine liberals are a sub-group of hypocrites. The term was coined in the late 1960s to refer to the hypocrisy of wealthy liberals who call for the use of mass transit while frequently using limousines or private jets, claiming environmental consciousness but driving low MPG sports cars or SUVs, or ostensibly supporting public education while actually sending their children to private schools.
If there’s an award for limousine liberalism, I nominate actress Susan Sarandon.

Susan Sarandon in Zucotti Park

On September 28, 2011, the 64-year-old Sarandon, “a veteran of protest marches and civil disobedience actions for liberal and humanitarian causes,” stopped by the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park on her way to Italy, to show her support for the anti-corporate “eat the rich” movement.
She told the crowd: “I’m just here to be educated and offer my support. There’s a lot of different kinds of people here who want to shift the paradigm to something that’s addressing the huge gap between the rich and the poor.”

On October 14, 2011, the same Susan Sarandon appeared at the launch of clothing company Uniqlo’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
As the new face of Uniqlo’s US Autumn Collection, Sarandon obligingly wore an ugly jacket made out of a fabric covered with the company’s red logo.
Sarandon has an estimated net worth of $50 million. If she hadn’t recently divorced Tim Robbins, another loud-mouthed Hollywood socialist who’s also an OWS supporter and also has a net worth of $50 million, the couple would have a net worth of $100 million. That would get them beheaded — according to the yardstick ($100 million and over) of yet another phony Hollywood socialist, Roseanne Barr.
Conveniently, Barr’s estimated net worth is “only” $80 million, which is $20 million short of that guillotine magic figure of $100 million. Barr should really try not to get any wealthier, or she would have to behead herself.
Umm…. What was that definition of “hypocrite” again?

The 10 Richest Celebrities Supporting Occupy Wall Street

From Celebrity Networth: Street’s slogan “We are the 99%” is derived from the idea that they represent the difference in wealth that separates the top 1% and every other American citizen. The top 1% of Americans is defined as anyone who has an annual household income greater than $593,000. So why are multi-millionaire celebrities showing up to offer their support and grab attention? And why is Occupy Wall Street taking them seriously? Here is a list of the 10 richest celebrities supporting Occupy Wall Street (they have a combined net worth of $1.255 billionby the way):
#1 Yoko Ono Net Worth – $500 million.  Ono stated “I love ‘Occupy Wall Street’! John is sending his smile to ‘Occupy Wall Street’. I am sending my love to ‘Occupy Wall Street’. We are all working together. ”
#2 Russell Simmons Net Worth – $325 million. Keep in mind that on top of being a hip-hop mogul Simmons is the founder of a high fee credit card company called UniRush Financial Services.
#3 Roseanne Barr Net Worth – $80 million. Roseanne thinks anyone with over $100 million should be beheaded. Interesting that her net worth is $80 million. I guess she doesn’t make “the cut”.
#4 Deepak Chopra Net Worth – $80 million. Chopra said #OWS is turning anger into awareness. The fortune he has made off his fluff filled books has just turned me to anger.
#5 Kanye West Net Worth – $70 million
#6 Alec Baldwin Net Worth – $65 million
#7 Susan Sarandon Net Worth – $50 million
#8 Michael Moore Net Worth – $50 million
#9 Tim Robbins Net Worth – $50 million
#10 Nancy Pelosi Net Worth – $35.5 million
How come these Occupy Wall Street protestors aren’t demanding these celebrities, part of the very rich they claim to despise, cough up their fair share?
As for these rich celebrities showing up at Occupy Wall Street, have they no shame?  I guess when you are seeking publicity, shame knows no bounds.  How shallow and empty their lives must be to pursue such a desperate/hypocritical move to enhance their egos.

Do they even know what they are saying?

I heard this on the radio today and couldn’t believe it.  Well, sadly, I can.  These protestors at Occupy Wall Street in New York are repeating what some dude is telling them. 
Toward the end of this video they repeat his words, “You can have sex with animals, or whatever.”  And Skippy says these protestors “express the frustration of the American people”….yeah, right.
Um, what exactly does this have to do with Wall Street?  These idiots have no idea what they are protesting. And each day it drags on, they make even bigger fools of themselves.

Robotic Chanting Commies at "Occupy Atlanta" Rally

Today, Oct. 8, the 3-week long “Occupy Wall Street” movement spread to other cities across the United States.
The creepy video below was taken at the “Occupy Atlanta” rally.
A bearded guy in a red (red! get it?) T-shirt leads the protesters in a strange robotic chanting ritual, wherein “the leader” says 2-3 words and the crowd repeats the words, then he says a few more words and the crowd repeats those words, and so on and so forth.
Then, another bearded guy in a red T-shirt in the crowd does the same thing: says 2-3 words that are repeated by the crowd, etc.
Then, a woman in a pink jacket stands up from the crowd to speak, and the crowd behaves the same way, repeating her words.
The Borg-like crowd’s willing surrender of their individuality and autonomous thought is frightening. They even frighten Congressman John Lewis, a Democrat and longtime civil rights leader.
