Look Who's Singing Along In Karaoke Of Revolution
Jewish World Review ^ | 11/6/11 | Mark Steyn

Way back in 1968, after the riots at the Democratic Convention in Chicago, Mayor Daley declared his forces were there to "preserve disorder." I believe that was one of Hizzoner's famous malapropisms. Forty-three years later Jean Quan, mayor of Oakland, and the Oakland City Council have made "preserving disorder" the official municipal policy.

Last Wednesday, the "Occupy Oakland" occupiers rampaged through the city, shutting down the nation's fifth-busiest port, forcing stores to close, terrorizing those residents foolish enough to commit the reactionary crime of "shopping," destroying ATMs, spraying the Christ the Light Cathedral with the insightful observation "F**k", etc.

And how did the Oakland City Council react? The following day they considered a resolution to express their support for "Occupy Oakland" and to call on the city administration to "collaborate with protesters."

That's "collaborate" in the Nazi-occupied France sense: the city's feckless political class is collaborating with anarchists against the taxpayers who maintain them in their sinecures.

This old chap has got them right: "They're anarchists for statism, wild free-spirited youth demanding more and more total government control of every aspect of life — just so long as it respects the fundamental human right to sloth". I love Mark Steyn, he sure has a way with words!

They are such nincompoops - and will be the first contingent of rabble-rousers to be sent to re-education camps by their Marxist ‘enablers’.

Is there a term for a ‘group’ of fools?

i.e. a ‘sounder’ is a group of wild hogs.

There are several reasons that the communists started and took over the public education system,

one of them being the covering up of the history of communist tactics.

Stalin called them "Useful Idiots."

[Term invented in Soviet Russia to describe people who blindly supported the likes of Lenin and Stalin (socialism) while they committed atrocity after atrocity.]

What Oakland needs is the Big’un. A 9.6 quake will destroy the hell hole and the hellions that live there.

It can’t happen too soon

I remember Oakland as a great, working class port city. This came to an end sometime in the mid 60s...
