#rsrh From the Mailbag.

The terrifying thing is, this guy probably thought that he was reaching out.

It is, of course, endlessly fascinating just how far a liberal will go to avoid noticing that the default option in pretty much any cop/Occupier confrontation these days will involve professional protesters (read: typically either progressives, or liberal Democrats) on one side and unionized (read: usually Democratic-affiliated) policemen following the orders of urban elected officials (read: usually Democrats) on the other.  Conservatives have about as much oversight over the process as we do over their primaries, which I am starting to suspect is what the Occupy movement is starting to serve as a proxy for, in a demented sort of way.  Certainly the Democratic establishment would want to turn it into one; after all, under current circumstances they can rather easily “stuff the ballot box,” as it were…

At any rate, I invite the Occupiers to start cleaning their own house, if they don’t like being pepper-sprayed. It’s not the VRWC’s fault that their own party establishment hates them.

    Nolte’s piece on The Grand Re-writing of the Narrative–Occupy and the Democrats never took to each other–fascinating. So now The Man is always a Conservative? Er, ok. Flail, much? And if there’s another Debt Ceiling Cotillion . . . how can O survive?

  • lourae says:

    As to fella above’s email: seems to me the officer was availing himself of a very ‘practical solution’. You won’t comply? Ok, I’ll spray you down like I’m hosing leaves off my deck. Ahhh–compliance.

  • Ric Locke says:

    What this and the rest of the Occupy protests reveal is the completeness of “epistemic closure” among those we are currently miscalling “liberals”. Anything that voids, challenges, or even questions Teh Narrative gets immediately cast into Outer Darkness. At this rate, the brains of the Occupiers and their sympathizers will be squeezed down to the size of a walnut in another year or so, not that some of them aren’t there already.

    I’m kind of curious as to what the redacted part of his comment was all about.
    Still, I have no love for dirty hippies. Or clean upper-class hypocrite hippies (I actually hate these kind more).

    • Moe_Lane says:

      BG5: It was just some irrelevant bad advice and a futile attempt to foment class warfare. Nothing worth reading twice, or even once; and nothing that would put money in my pocket, which is of course the fundamental reason for me publishing it in the first place. 🙂

      Also: you saw that story, too? I was just getting ready to write on it.

  • BigGator5 says:

    @Moe: Are you kidding me? Even without a computer to call my own, I think I might be more connected on this #OWS story than you.

  • Catseye says:

    Occupy as a form of Democratic Primary “the Occupy movement is starting to serve as a proxy for, in a demented sort of way.” Interesting idea, I’ve been looking at it as a sort of Left wing nervous breakdown. Could be a bit of both.

  • qixlqatl says:

    Wait, Catseye…I thought the left was the result of the nervous breakdowns stupid people have when trying to be intellectual….

  • DaveP. says:

    While I DO have a problem with police using spray and tasers for ‘compliance’ purposes (the same problem I have with ANY LEO using weapons against the unarmed without being offered violence first) I am finding it hard to muster up any sympathy for what the military used to call “Red-on-Red”.
    I’ll also point out that if us evil Christianist conservatives were really as bad as Moe’s poster wants to think… he’d be headless in the bottom of a shallow grave by now. People of his sort need to demonize their opponents to excuse themselves from actually examining their beliefs (and, eventually, actions).

  • Catseye says:

    Dave Gateway Pundit had piece earlier on how the use of pepper spray on protesters who resist is pretty much SOP. The point he made was people don’t have handles when they resist and you use force to end t he resistance they tend to break the person. I’ve been broken a lot during my life I know how it feels, pepper spray may seem cruel but it’s better then a broken limb or torn ligaments.

  • DaveP. says:

    Catseye, first of all any PD will automatically defend anything- up to and including rape and murder- as “SOP”, in order to reduce the odds against it in a lawsuit. That doesn’t make it right. Second, police were breaking up conga lines like this for years without gas, tasers, or broken bones, as “SOP”. Gas is just easier… which, again, doesn’t make it right. Third, police for years now have been walking the slope from weapons-only-when-threatened to weapons-whenever-we-feel-like-it. Wanna see where the next stop is?
    And finally, anything you cheer being done to these vermin today may end up being done to, say, a Tea Party crowd or a OC activist tomorrow. Gonna cheer then?
