Iraq War Veteran Injured at OWS Oakland Founder of IHateTheMarineCorps.com
Verum Serum ^ | October 27, 2011 | Morgen

Posted on 10/28/2011 7:42:28 AM PDT by Minus_The_Bear

Scott Olsen is the Marine Corps veteran critically injured at Occupy Oakland Tuesday night, during a confrontation between the protesters and the police. The latest news is good: his condition has been upgraded from critical to fair and he is apparently conscious and able to respond to doctors and family members. I sincerely wish him a full recovery, and I also hope that a proper investigation is conducted to determine whether police misconduct is responsible for his injuries.

But I ran across something this evening that may add a new dimension to this story. It has been widely reported that Olsen is a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War. But apparently his opposition to the U.S. military and the Marine Corps in which he served runs a little deeper.

The site is no longer live, but Olsen was the founder of IHateTheMarineCorps.com, a private user forum apparently dedicated to bashing the Marine Corps. (click to enlarge)

Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t the draft end in 1970? If he hated the Marines so much, then why did he join?

The video I saw last night, showed this critically injured ex Marine making a phone call on his cell phone... all the while laying on the ground.

Now, maybe he did have a fractured skull; not everybody with a fractured skull injury is unconscious. But showing him talking on the phone does bring into question the veracity of the report that he was critically injured.

Has the hospital verified this diagnosis, or is this just the opinion of the Occupy medic/s, whose “Medic” qualification is that he took a Basic First Aid course when he wasin 6th grade?

what is the njp punishment for insubordination

I guarantee that he got kicked out of the Marines. I would bet money that he at least has an Other Than Honorable Discharge.

I'm sure he joined up as a non-hack and he got out as a non-hack.

I'm also highly suspicious he was ever deployed to any of the recent theaters in the middle east.

Still, it doesn’t excuse what happened to him or to those who were trying to help him as he lay in the street.

Maybe he preferred not being asked and not telling.

Anyway, I'm glad to hear his head isn't as busted as the Marx in the Parks gang wanted.

Get better, boy.

Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen lays on the ground bleeding from a head wound after being struck by a by a projectile during an Occupy Wall Street protest in Oakland,Calif. Olsen suffered a fractured skull while marching with other protesters attempting to reestablish a presence in the area of the disbanded camp, said Dottie Guy, of the Iraq Veterans Against the War. Police Chief Howard Jordan says an internal reviewboard and local prosecutors have been asked to determine if officers on the scene used excessive force.

Need to get the word out on this. Get it to Fox News, talk radio, etc. This Olsen guy is their modern day Kent State martyr, and the media is trying to claim he is a patriotic veteran. I knew this guy would turn out to be a leftist druggie who hated the very military her served in. It was only a matter of time before his past was uncovered - now we have to get the truth out.

“My guess? To piss off liberal mom and dad. Only he got a heavy dose of Marine reality and didn’t like all the discipline.”

Why join the Corps for that? He could have pissed his parents off just as much by joining the air force.

For somebody with a fractured skull, he’s made a remarkable recovery. He seems to be doing press interviews, and on top of that, even the doctors wouldn’t say his prognosis was serious. This morning he was actually described as being in good condition, so I don’t think the real doctors want to cover for his ploy.

Odd that the lapdog media have not picked up on this interesting sidenote. NOT!

It also makes one wonder why a pasty-faced loser from Illinois was protesting in Oakland, California. Is that where his handlers had him billeted? Or couldn’t he raise enough loons to muster a protest in his hometown7?

I love the liberal media spin!.....Iragi War veteran nearly killed in the protests....(Sorry! When he entered that park he was just another protester on their side)....They want you to think: That’s just awful! How could the cops do that to a veteran?....These rat bastards in the leftist media are very clever!

I heard that last night on a radio talk show. That he was having issues with the Marines. I bet no one will be able to find “The hardcopy”.

Scalp wounds bleed like mad. Once when I was cleaning at an establishment where I volunteered, I banged my head on the metal tip of an inward-opening window. It hurt a lot when it happened, but then it stopped a few minutes later and I went on cleaning. Some visitors came into the place where I was working to ask a question and I saw them staring at me oddly. After they left, I went into the bathroom and discovered that I had evidently cut my scalp, because blood had run out from under my hair and one entire side of my face was covered with blood.

I guess the visitors were too scared to ask me what had happened and just thought they were lucky to get out with their lives!

But in any case, I didn’t have a concussion or anything except a cut about 1/2 long at the top of my head.

Has anyone verified or confirmed that this O-hole in fact served and is a veteran?

Furthermore, was he ever in Iraq, or was he merely serving DURING the/an Iraq war?

Looking at that photo, I just think... HIV...

And before anyone jumps on me for not being sympathetic with someone who is wounded... I say, "Probably wouldn't have gotten wounded if he'd been at home or at work in Illinois instead of playing Obama Theatre Street Thug in Oakland."

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

This guy is so dodgy. He hasn’t been in the SF area all that long. His linked in stuff makes him look like an unschooled computer guy (not quite good enough at it to be a geek).Did nothing special during his Marine time.

Between the bio and the footage which clearly shows him on the ground with nothing near him (including tear gas or cannister or rock) until ‘the mob’ shows up to help. This is as false flag as anything I have ever seen

There have been, and are still, pro-communist veteran groups. ie, Veterans For Peace (still active), Vietnam Veterans Against the War (John Kerry’s group), Vietnam Veterans Against the War - Anti-Imperialist (Maoist offshoot of VVAW), Irag War Veterans Against the War. All commie.

funny how most of the media ignore this little fact.

The military has been infested with fools who care more about getting free college, VA loans etc than they care about serving the military and the country.

We need to stop this PC madness, stop openly serving homosexuals and to get back to how the military should be run instead of many of the crap now joining.

looking at him he seems to have joined to get the freebies like free college and then hanging out with a bunch of men.

So why did he join then it he wanted to hang out with men in the shower.

The marytr is also anti-semitic: "By Ahab, March 8, 2008 at 10:05 pm Link to this comment (Unregistered commenter) To criticize the Turks for defending their national border and cheer on the Hebrews for expanding theirs on the land of the other indigenous people you forgot to mention. The only distinctions the Kurds have, they share with many other indigenous people is that they did not show up by boatloads to occupy and settle someone else’s land and by contrast majority of Hebrews do not even live in the said Hebrew mother land and are perfectly happy where ever it is they call home."
