Skip to comments.“Day of Rage:” Alinskyites call for pointless mass sleepover on Wall Street

What do they want? Theyre not really sure.
When do they want it? For a couple of months, or until the weather gets too cold, anyway.
A bunch of adrift Alinskyites and disorganized organizers from a group called Adbusters are converging in New York City for some reason or other. Theyre bringing tents, sleeping bags, yoga instructors, face paint and at some point, theyll get around to deciding what their one demand is:
On Saturday thousands of us will occupy Wall Street. We will wave our signs, unfurl our banners, beat our drums, chant our slogans and then well get down to business and hold several peoples assemblies to decide what our one demand will be.
Shall we demand that President Obama reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act; outlaw flash trading; impose a 1% tax on all financial transactions?
These are good ideas but not very energizing.
How about we demand the revocation of corporate personhood?
Feels a bit too abstract. Many Americans dont fully grasp whats at stake with this one. And besides, even if he wants to, President Obama cannot deliver this immediately. In the wake of the recent Supreme Court ruling, a reform project like this requires a constitutional amendment that would take a few years and a whole movement to achieve.
We could demand Obama set up an American Democracy Reform Commission tasked with ending the monied corruption in Washington? Or perhaps a Presidential Commission to rethink the American banking system?

Will the big headed puppets be there? I miss those.
Start calling it the Day of Reagan. That should get their pink undies in a twist.
Looks like 100 drum circle hippies sitting in a circle.
Apparently they could only muster a few hours of mild agitation.
“Don’t take the brown acid, man.”
Is this the possible riot Bloomberg was whining about the other day?
Must be a DUD! I haven’t heard one word of this on the news.
I’M MILDLY IRRITATED AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT FOR MUCH LONGER!!!!!!
Yeah....the protesters are wining about that online. LOL!
Ha ha ha... This was posted on their website:
Gas and riot shields. We must be guerilla

Be prepared. We need to be a mobile force. A modern army of nonviolent protest. They will bring tear gas, riot shields, undercovers, and rubber bullets. Im sure theyll have choppers a waiting too.
We will bring our bodies, spirits, our legs to stand on, our voices to speak with, and our hearts.
America will know the truth. We are legion. We do not forgive, we do not forget.
Our strength will be in our numbers, and our ability to mobilize. We can blend in with the general population. And we will carry our message by standing with signs and sleeping on our homeland, our right as Americans. We are tired of the never ending lies. America needs to find her new path, and we will not rest until we are there.
Get ready to stand, speak, and sleep for months on the streets of NYC. This revolution will not be stopped by riot shields, teargas, or force. We are legion. We demand change. Our force is in our multitude, and our ability to mobilize.
HAHAHA. I knew this "Day of Rage" would in reality turn into a day of mild irritation, and attract no more than a few hundred drug addled college mush heads following the lead of a couple dozen aging hippies.
“Typing is for the working class,” LOL!
There is some serious trollin’ going on in the chat. ;-)
Good thing he didn't shut down the subway and evacuate the city.
It would be interesting for someone to videotape these events and analyze the professional protesters. I would bet a sizable amount have no real jobs other than being transported from place to place (Madison, etc) and causing trouble. Most likely Soros money is supporting them.
