OWS Support Crumbling from Inside; "Look Up Hypocrite in the Dictionary, [edited]!"
Pundit Press ^ | 10/21/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 10/21/2011 7:03:22 AM PDT by therightliveswithus

With "Occupy Wall Street" now over one month old with no coherent plan or demands, it is not surprising that the movement is now faltering. However, the collapse is coming from a slightly unexpected source: inside the movement itself.

Already there are reports of rampant thievery and rape. More telling, however, is the in-fighting all over the Occupy Wall Street forum and another, separate website called "The Multitude."

Most stark is the fact that Occupy Wall Street says that it stands for Democracy, yet those with dissenting opinions are castigated and ridiculed, while being told that they "don't count." Take this comment, for example, on a thread entitled, Maybe OWS is not for me?:

Considering that these people supposed support the "99%," it is exceedingly hypocritical for them to only think a small gathering at the "head" of the group are the most important.

In a post entitled Profiting From Protesting, one person decried making money off of the protests, arguing that they should not both argue against capitalism yet make money off of it. One enraged OWS member angrily responded (obscenities blurred):

The more they stew in their own urine and feces, the sooner the flies will come, lay thier eggs, and the maggots will come out to consume the whole pile of filth. This will eventually end with each infected city being forced, purely for sanitary and public health reasons (no sarcasm intended), to oust its “Occupation” and sanitize the entire area.

These people are ingrates of the highest order. These people are similar to the hippies and commies from the 60’s who advocated the destruction of our system and way of life while abusing the freedoms that said system extended to them in the first place.

The Left is composed of a bunch of factions that can only get along as long as they do not come into close contact.

With “Occupy Wall Street” now over one month old ..


Darn,I forgot all about the one month aniversary.
I would have given you a bucket to do your business in.
Here’s to the next several freezing rain and snow filled month.
May the ghost of Marx protect and keep you.
Otherwise, what’s next? Maybe Ibama will declare OWS day as a national holiday?

It’s getting cold. The pinkos will pack it up and continue planning for next year. This year was just a dry run anyway. This has always been about the 2012 election.

I can tell you this is so similar to the Madison sit-ins this past Winter, right down to the same drumbeats. I was working with some people in the Madison capital during the big crazy and union standoff and they told me the smell from these people was something they would remember forever.

The first few nights below 32 degrees and a little sleet and snow would dissolve this protest in short order.

what I find interesting is that each city group already had lawyers at the ready.

The democrats and leftist power grabbers are looking to create their new brownshirts.

The only common theme, “HIGHER TAXES”

We’re seeing a collision of people who espouse a dissolution of private and personal possessions,

yet want to keep their own,

and can’t see the contradiction.

Also, I’ve read that the “postmodern” generation is “comfortable with contradiction”, ie, they don’t automatically make the logic step to “one of these things is wrong”. These people are asking for a dissonant disruption in their psyches if they try to maintain this mindset.

I recently had the privilege of meeting the father of the young lady that stood up and spoke in defense of Walker (who was yelled/cursed at by a union thug).

And every day, the weather gets colder and the rain becomes more persistent. Their ranks will get smaller and smaller as colds and flu set in. Eventually they will sulk back to their Tribecka apartments and slide even deeper into depression as they realize that their love-in/hissy fit only made them look foolish.

And hey, you OWS'ers... There will come a time thirty or forty years in the future when you will look back upon your behavior over the last month and you will be very, very embarrassed at how childish and incoherent you were. Trust me on this one.

The OWS Movement may well be faltering but the idea that they have "no coherent plan" is simply nonsense. Unfortunately that nonsense is repeated daily in the MSM and, sad to say, here at FR as well.

I suggest that anyone who continues to believe this MSM lie simply take a look at their candidate list of demands and plans for an OWS "National General Assembly" to be convened in Philadelphia on July 4th 2012 to finalize that list. They may well fail in all of this, I expect they will, but they have a very detailed plan and they are executing it quite well.

Here is the link to the The 99 Percent Declaration

Read it and you will start to understand.

It starts off good, and then deteriorates into all sorts of issues. By the time I got to forgiveness of student loans, they had lost me.

Yes, it does start off good. I assume they think they can pull in some Ron Paul and even some Tea Party support. I don't think that will work given the rest of the list that is basically your typical Marxist agenda.

It’s too bad they can’t just go with a few of the top items like stopping corporations funding politicians and term limits for congress critters.

Teaching postmodern thought, ie, relativism,
is simply another symptom of communists infiltrating our education system.

Thank God we have the internet, if we had it int he 60’s maybe more people would have seen the hippies for what they truly were and they would have been heckled back into the holes they crawled out of.

Not to mention the people sneaking in tents to smell girls feet. The people getting arrested for exposing themselves to young girls.

I am so glad that we have cell phone cameras and the internet this time around dealing with hippies because now we can see all the Dirt and Filth of these hippies, not the dirt and filth on their bodies but the sewage that also spews from their minds.

I think someone should print up some slick brochures showing a tropical island they can all Occupy and create their dream society from scratch. Collect all the miscreants all across the country. They can set up all their committees and general assemblies and get away from that nasty 1% forever. Paradise!!

At the moment the question I’d love to have answered accurately is “where is the money coming from?” When it’s all over the only one that will be asked is “where did all the money go?”
