#rsrh Stick-wielding #OWS mob assaults NYPD.

What charming people.

Just a short while after protesters learned they’d be able to stay in Zuccotti Park indefinitely, violence broke out as a group marched away from it.

Protesters, apparently jubilant over being able to stay in the park after their furious cleanup efforts, took their brooms, flags and signs and started fanning out at around 7:30 a.m.

1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg reported the protesters were saying things to the effect that now that they’d cleaned up the park, they were going to clean up Wall Street.

Ah, a variation of the old sign trick: “It’s not a club. It’s a broom.”  Nice to see that the old traditions of the bloodthirsty Mob are being updated for the modern age.  One wonders how they’ll find an acceptable substitute for cobblestones…

    The passive voice is cute, as well. Violence just breaks out.

    While I find the utter lack of self-awareness amusing/infuriating, I worry for the safety of these people. Terrible people are behind this. That Belloc quote keeps buzzing around my head–‘large and awful faces’ not smiling, and it scares me.
