OWS Day of Action: Storm Wall Street disguised in business suits; Update
Hot Air ^ | 11-17-11 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 11/17/2011 7:56:55 AM PST by Driftwood1

So this has been the marketing strategy for Mens Wearhouse all along, huh?

The “day of action” is to begin early, with protesters converging on Wall Street camouflaged in business suits hoping to blend in with office workers trooping out of the subway.

“We will rise from beneath. They can’t stop all of us. It’s going to get crazy,” vowed one organizer. “They took the first shot Tuesday night. [Thursday] we return fire. We will be peaceful, but we will resist.”

The city said it was bracing for tens of thousands of people in the streets.

“The protesters are calling for a massive event aimed at disrupting major parts of the city,” said Howard Wolfson, deputy mayor for governmental affairs. “We will be prepared for that.”

Their “tens of thousands of protesters” turned out to be about a thousand. And much of that crowd was media.

It’s going to get crazy,

Great images for the 2012 election with audio of Obama's sympathetic support.

"I understand the frustrations that are being expressed in those protests," Obama said in an interview with ABC News

This proves they have Big Money supporting them.
They aren’t smart enough to think up a plan to wear business clothes.

I bet at least a dozen of them whined, “Do I have to wear a tie?!!”

Hippie or zombie, who can tell?
At least on FR you don't have to smell the OWS zombies.

OWSSSS??

How about this?

‘Occupy’ a voting booth ... and then (like a grown up), live with your choice!!

We’re living with YOUR choice right now, and we WILL occupy a voting booth again to turn it around.

The president is using SEIU and other unions to do these disruptions. The public knows who is behind the demonstrations. Disruptive demonstrations cannot possibly help the obama presidency. They diminish his already slim chance of re-election.

They will be wearing suits and ties? The women will be wearing "power" pantsuits or dresses/skirts?
Wow, lettem occupy...it would be WORTH it to see those folks "dressed" for Wall Street.

You nailed it, Gal.
That burrows down past the symptoms and gets right to the heart and soul of the problem.

Based on watching a couple of live streams all morning, it’s hysterical to see probably 2-3 “protesters” running around with cameras per 1 protestor just milling around. These people REALLY like to film each other.

You’re very welcome. I have been watching off and on all morning. Haven’t turned my speakers on, so I don’t have to listen to them..........watching them is pretty funny though!

I just checked it out on Google Maps. Zucotti Park is a good 4-5 miles south of Macy’s, so I wouldn’t worry. You can bet the NYPD and the city will be watching the fools on T-Day. NO WAY will they want a disruption of the parade while millions are watching on national TV...especially with all the kids.

They really are uninspired lame ass revolutionaries.

They break a window now and then, then regroup over macchiatos in Starbucks.

Resist we much, lol. They are going to attack innocent New York citizens, but only in the nicest possible way. Got it.
