NYC OCCUPY SMASHES STARBUCKS, SHOUTS 'ALL PIGS MUST DIE'
breitbart.com ^ | 04/16/2012 | LEE STRANAHAN

Posted on 04/16/2012 8:23:43 AM PDT by massmike

We’ve told you in previous reports to expect the increasingly broke, desperate and nomadic Occupy movement to continue to make police the enemy and to make more flailing ‘direct actions’ in an attempt to stir up headlines. In New York City this weekend, they did not disappoint.

As The New York Times East Village Local reported... Last night’s riotous atmosphere resulted in a sergeant and lieutenant suffering minor injuries while scuffling with anarchist protesters at the Astor Place Starbucks, the police said.

According to police, around 25 people tried smashing the windows of the cafe with eight-foot long steel pipes at around 8:45 p.m. after attending the Anarchist book fair earlier in the day. “Patrons fearing that they would be hit by flying glass hid under tables,” the police said in a statement. “Several” officers were assaulted with pipes and bottles, the police added.

Good.

November is coming. I think, for most Americans, it can’t come too soon.

Does this mean that all coffee-drinking patrons of Starbucks are of the swine kind?

What a joke. Because New York City has thrown the Second Amendment in the dumpster, we now have lawless looters and rioters on the loose while Starbucks customers cower behind the tables.

Without any concealed weapons to defend themselves.

But given that Starbucks customers are liberals just only a little higher in the food chain than the animals breaking the windows.... I don’t care too much who loses.

This is recreational rioting. The penalties, if any, aren't sufficient to deter the nihilists. Bloomberg probably approves.

If Mayor Rudy (who for all of his liberal, RINO ways was still a law n’ order Mayor) was still in charge, he would have told the NYPD to kick the asses of those ‘Occupy’ dirtbags, evict them from wherever they are ‘occupying’, give ‘em a bath by hosing them down, and letting them ‘occupy’ Rikers Island for a while.

Like the Sons Of Obama looters and rioters, these types of mobs tend to stay in their own neighborhoods and attack their own people. (They don't want to fight anybody who might fight back. OUCH! That could hurt!)

No, they are not Commie enough to be down with the struggle, that is why they attacked Stalinbuks, to send a message. Ya know, that whole Russian Revolution thing which I flunked in history, ya know Bolsheviks vs. the ?

Now the Uber-Liberals get to see the evil-spawn-seed of their ways.

Maybe a wake-up moment for them....

“Several” officers were assaulted with pipes and bottles, the police added.”

Aren’t the police unions big supporters of Liberal politicians and policies? Will this change their mind or will they continue to empower their enemies?

Astor Place is a very odd place for left wingers to riot. There’s a luxury apartment building that someone put into a parking lot there a couple of decades ago, but otherwise the East Village is a hangout for hippies, both rich and not so rich. And Starbucks?

It’s just a couple of blocks from Washington Square Park, and right next to the middle of NYU. Maybe these are just people from the neighborhood, with too much time on their hands.

I haven’t been down there in a while, but there used to be a Starbucks on the side street just off Washington Square, on the way East toward Astor Place. Kind of an innocuous hole in the wall, I would have said.

Incorrect. The anarchists in Portland have been attacking Starbucks for years. A couple of years ago I think they firebombed one of their stores. I think it's happened in other places, as well.

More than anything, they despise success.

LOL! Are you kidding? Lattes are too basic for the entitlement crowd. The only way Starbucks can assuage these victims of “the man” is to supply them with free IcedFrappaMachiattoSoyDoubleShot-whatever.

Starbucks, like Wall Street, is one of theirs. The o "occupy" aand whatever else they call themselves belong to obama and the Democrat Party. Both Starbucks and Wall Street were and are big obama and Democrat supporters. The cities where the occupy crowd are most active appear to be Democrat controled. I understand that Bloomberg ran and was elected mayor as a Republican, but, do not fool yourself, he is Democrat to the core.

The sands of time are rapidly running out for the decent people to flee the big cities. I understand that maybe all they will be able to leave with is their hat, ass, and life. But should they choose to stay, they will lose all three.

The Astor Place Starbucks is huge and open all night. You might be thinking of the one at Third Ave. and St Marks Place.

There was some kind of action at the Beacon Theatre last night too. Metal barricades, lots of cop cars, nutheads sitting around on the sidewalk totally blocking the 74th Street sidewalk. Don’t know what that was about. Didn’t even notice who was playing there.

The 0ccubamas are still practicing to go full throttle when 0b0z0’s numbers for reelection tank enough to worry them.

This is their idea of reelecting the unelectable usurper without an election.

Watch the communist armed forces that consist of 0ccubamas, flash M0bamas, Barack Panthers, 0b0z0’s sons, H0lder’s people, uni0n thugs and the softening up artillery called the MSM, screaming “no justice, no peace” when people stand up to prevent turning the country into an inferno.

N0bama isn’t an option, 0b0z0-for-life IS.

You’ve reminded me of one the mentors;

Bernardine Dohrn “There’s no way to be committed to non-violence in the most violent society that history has ever created. I’m not committed to non-violence in any way.”

What failed in the sixties is being tried again.

For the first time in history, communists intend to subjugate a legally armed population.

To awaken the sleeping armed giant, they are committing suicide and causing tremendous harm to the country.

Anyway, the clean up will commence when they start their revolution that will turn into The Second Revolution.
