They ended up with this . . .
A guy in a Guy Fawkes mask. And that, for about six weeks last fall. The 1% are trembling in their custom-made gecko-skin boots.
This was the time that the Occupy movement was supposed to reenergize itself and sweep across the country in a massive wave of revolutionary fervor. The Prog Spring of 2012. Wha' hoppen? Kinda fell flat, didn't it? Oh sure, you still have Know-it-all Nadin Brzezinski, Girl Reporter, sniffing out stories at her local OWS GA. You still have Trust Fund Ted Hall pleading, "Help us now!" You have OccuPoet Misty Rowan huffing and puffing in her frustration. But other than those few True Believers, where are the rest of the masses and why aren't they rising up? May Day turned out to be Maybe Not Day. Heck, William Rivers Pitt, the 40-Year-Old Insurgent, is still lodged in his Barcalounger watching Bruins' games long after the Bruins were eliminated.
Doubts now are setting in among some of the DUmmies. Witness this THREAD, "So, what are your plans since the glorious revolution is not coming?"
Will the DUmmies keep the faith? Let's find out. DUmmies, Bolshevik Red. Me, Charles Henrickson, [brackets]:
So, what are your plans since the glorious revolution is not coming?
[What, you don't BELIEEEEEEEEEEEVE??]
OWS appears to be a bust.
It made a point initially, but seems to have lost steam.
[The steaming pile of crap that is Occupy is cooling off.]
For example, Chicago was practically a ghost town yesterday as anyone who lives or works here stayed away. You had a group of protesters marching through the city aimlessly for about five hours playing cat and mouse with cops. Really not sure what that accomplished.
What's Plan B?
[EIGHT hours of marching aimlessly.]
Plan B? Work like hell to elect true Progressives.
[That WOULD be like hell.]
I think we will get more help from Obama in his second term.
["Second term"? "Second term"?? Are you kidding me?? "SECOND TERM"??? < /mora>]
I agree with you about Obama in his second term--it's "Legacy Time" at that stage of the game.
[It's "Lunacy Time" if he gets it.]
It's time to turn our attention to November.
[Yes, that's right, Democratics. Be sure to GET OUT THERE AND VOTE on November 7th!]
There was little warning that the French revolution was going to break out, but indeed it did. . . .
[NOBODY expects the French Revolution!]
The same with other revolts throughout history.
[And now the DUmmies are revolting!]
You cannot predict them by how many people are out in the streets protesting. . . .
[Indeed. The fact that they are NOT out there protesting could be a sign that the revolution is about to start! Or not.]
I am not young, stupid or naive.
[No. You are old, stupid, and naive.]
The whole population does not suddenly decide it is time to stand up. Someone stands up and others follow.
[Pied Piper Pitt, get out of that Barcalounger! The nation NEEDS you!]
But OWS is not well organized.
[No way! Ted Hall tweeted me tomorrow's schedule, and there's a drum circle set for 2:45, followed by a sidewalk defecation at 3:30, and a teach-in at 4:00. And you say there's no organization!!]
even a whiff of criticism of Occupy's strategy brings personal attacks. . . .
[Even a whiff of the Occupiers brings asthma attacks.]
Yesterday's march seemed to wander aimlessly for hours on end. What did that accomplish?
[Air movement, at least.]
I definitely want to see us evolve past capitalism to socialism.
[Is that you, Barack Obama?]
Mon dieu. . . .
[Moon DU. . . .]
Plan 'C' for Chinese!
[Plan 9 from Outer Space.]
The revolution is happening. . . .
[The aptly-named lunatica weighs in.]
But you don't hear about it form the media. Thus it will take a little longer since it's the impossible.
[It's also the invisible.]
We're probably still too well off in spite of not being well off.
[So let's get poorer so we can have a revolution. Brilliant.]
Looks like porn and basements for awhile.
[The DUmmie Way.]
Passive Class Warfare.
[DUmmie Chan790 has a plan . . .]
Let's make being wealthy so unpleasant that the wealthy choose to not be wealthy.
[Yes! I get it! We'll make the wealthy . . . not . . . uh, want . . . to be . . . . wealthy. . . . Hmm, have to think about that one. . . .]
just build an eventually-critical mass of people who refuse to work for them or do business with them on any equitable level, actively discriminate against them, never pass up an opportunity to do something purely because it'll make their lives suck a bit more. Let them suffer our active contempt.
[We fart in your general direction, you silly rich pig-dogs!]
If I had a piece of land and it was next to Mitt Romney's piece of land and he wanted a 4' easement...I'd demand $1B and I'd tell him upfront that I was spending most of the money to destroy the things he loves in life. If I found David Koch's wallet in the street, I'd burn it rather than return it. If I was selling a product, I'd sell them for a loss before I'd ever sell one to Eric Cantor. Get in front of Rush Limbaugh's car on a single-lane no-passing-road in which runs in front of the police station...and drive as slow as legally-possible. If I had a dog, it would never crap anywhere but the best front lawns in gated communities. Actively conspire to make sure that nobody will mow Sheldon Adelson's lawn for any sum of money. Open a homeless shelter directly across the street from their children's prissy little private schools and halfway houses near their homes. Rent office space in their buildings on long-term leases then lend-use to methadone clinics, life-after-prison and social-welfare organizations. . . .
[Interesting plan you have there, DUmmie Chan790. We'll call it the Chan Plan. I can see you've given it a lot of thought. Does this get you excited? I mean, thinking about having a dog go poop on lawns in gated dommunities? Thinking about getting in front of Rush Limbaugh's car and slowing down? Let me ask you this, though: Have you thought about how likely any of this is to happen? Have you thought about how many you will have in your "eventually-critical mass of people" who will join you in the Chan Plan, aka the Obnoxious Neighbor Crusade? And you think this will cause the wealthy to not want to be wealthy??]
I really don't see any viability to this plan.
[Get that man's name!]
OWS is a "bust"????? WTF????
[Somehow the news didn't get to this one.]
The Movement is still very much alive.
[Today's Sidewalk Defecation is ON!]
We change or slip into fascism for as long as the Earth can support it until the resources aren't there and we see massive die off and plunge into darkness for as many generations as the eye can see and in all probability this will be the highwater mark of our race because there will be no "low hanging fruit" resource wise and our race ends where it began on this little dot in the corner suburbs of an unremarkable galaxy trapped like rats incapable of growing beyond rats on a sinking ship.
[And on that cheery note. . . .]
Does that mean you're going to sell your iPod, iPhone, iPad and iMac and do without just so you don't fatten Apple's treasury?
You filthy capitalist pig!
I'm not real sure that will work, after all, making being poor so unpleasant that the poor choose to get rich never seems to work.
Ah, Lenin's old "Vanguard of the Proletariat" concept I see...
They are victims of their own liberal policies. So many people are on welfare and unemployment and the benefits are so good and provide so much ‘comfort’ that people aren’t worked up enough to go into the streets. The ones that are not on government bennies have all of their Starbucks Lattes and beer paid for by massive student loans and pell grants. So even though they are mad, they are still taken care of enough to be comfortable.
If they want a revolution they will have to get the government to cut these benefits. The problem is that they are the ones in power and this will never happen, its a catch 22! Saul Alinsky tactics don’t work so well when allies are the ones in power.
Was this from Les Miserables? Interesting picture for the "They were hoping for this". The student revolt in Les Miserables was the June 1832 uprising and it lasted about two days before being put down.
The poor guy is getting eviscerated by the DUmmies for a small critique of the Occupy (non) Movement, which was just the facts, and even being accused of "red-baiting" when he didn't say squat about Communists.
Maybe he's a: Lousy FReeper Troll? ;-)
What’s scary is that if we vote the right people in office this year and they start cutting spending, people are going to feel pain followed by Greek style unrest.
A very liberal WaPo columnist just wrote the same thing.
Most of those DU posters are likely failures at life, many surely came from broken households and are living close to or are in poverty. Their anger at the world and everything about it is just a reflection of the hate they have for themselves, and the pathetic wastes of life they true are.

Their anger at the world and everything about it is just a reflection of the hate they have for themselves, and the pathetic wastes of life they truly are. They are their own downfall.
Are they looking at the French Revolution as a model for their uprising? Murder, pillaging, beheadings and all?
Do not doubt it. Several months ago at DU, there was a spree of postings with guillotines and "off with their heads" comments. The admins had to clamp down.
Does this one win the Kewpie Doll For A Moment Of Mental Clarity?
DUmmie nobodyspecial, who is also the OP, certainly would be worthy of a Kewpie, but I wanted to use my "Get that man's name!" line.
That was DUmmie TheKentuckian, who then goes on--and on and on--for about fifteen paragraphs. I think DUmmie TheKentuckian just likes to hear himself pontificate,
What do these people do for money? Borrow/steal from their mom's purses? I don't think I could live life with a mindset like that. Don't wanna work, don't wanna make money, wanna mooch off others, wanna merely subsist on gov't handouts.
