OccupyWallStreet and May Day

Zombie of PJ Media has a superb photo essay of the OccupyOakland May Day demonstration...

Part One here...
Part Two is here...

Highlighting the essay...

Back on the main stage, a member of “Modesto Anarcho,” a notoriously militant and violent anarchist group, gave a rousing speech that was so extreme it even started making some of the girls in the audience a little nervous. The video of his speech is four minutes long, but well worth a listen. In it, he savagely attacks the Occupy movement as being too moderate, too passive, and too open to being co-opted by lily-livered liberals and totalitarian communists. In his mind, Occupy is already contaminated by acquiescence to the status quo, and needs to be discarded. We need to skip any intervening steps and rush straight to the end of civilization right now: smash it all, tear everything down, eliminate all existing rules, laws and customs of society and start again.

If this was the ’60s, then Occupy would be the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society), and this guy would be Bill Ayers, trying to transform it into a terrorist army like the Weather Underground. Amazing how history repeats and repeats and repeats.


Fox News Sean Hannity battled an OccupyWallStreet organizer on his prime time program earlier this week...

As Hot Air's Allahpundit notes -
He seems almost eager to confirm people’s worst suspicions about the attitudes of a young entitled socialist d-bag, which makes me wonder if any part of this is a goof. Then again, maybe I feel that way because it’s the only way I can rationalize the attitude seen here. Normally when someone from a “controversial” group shows up on cable news, they’re keen to shoot down the host’s worst assumptions about them. Not this guy. Points for honesty, I guess.

The OWS organizer also appeared on Sean Hannity's radio program for almost an hour - demanding that he be given a job - but when the host offered to do all he could using the reach of his program to get him a job, based on the skills that the organizer could offer an employer - the nimrod not only demonstrated a complete lack of basic skills, but an obnoxious demeanor as well as a preference to only take a certain job (high paying with little or no accountability or responsibility to actually produce something).

Bottom line - he just wants to suckle at the teet of the Government as long and as hard as he can. So, no, this is not a goof. He really is a young entitled socialist d-bag.

I wonder if he will vote for Obama - or avoid casting a ballot because Obama didn't push the hard left agenda sufficiently enough to 'fundamentally change' the United States.

To close - here's Dennis Miller on OWS....(and Elizabeth Warren - a doubleheader..)
