#OWS protesters verbally abuse black man.

(Via Instapundit) Unlike Jonah Goldberg, I can still find plenty of good adjectives to describe this clip of Occupier jackasses screaming racially-tinged abuse at an African-American security guard (NSFW, due to language and, well, Occupiers):

Let’s see: there’s ‘racist,’ ‘intolerant,’ and ‘bigoted.’  Then there’s ‘smelly,’ ‘funky,’ ‘filthy,’ ‘dirty,’ and ‘lice-ridden.’  Moving on, we go to ‘unemployed,’ unemployable,’ ‘useless,’ ‘dysfunctional,’ ‘undesirable,’ ‘unfit,’ and of course ‘pathetic.’

And, lastly?  ‘Desperate.’  I like that one quite a bit, because it works on a variety of levels.  Especially the one where you contemplate that the Occupiers originally started out laboring under the delusion that they, and folks like the security guard, were on the same side.  And that folks like the security guard recognized it, and would partner with the Occupiers because of it.  Under the Occupiers’ benevolent leadership, of course.

But – as you can see – nobody gets meaner faster than a self-righteous professional liberal who’s just had his or her worldview punctured by pesky objective reality again…

#rsrh QotD, I’m Busy Downloading Albums, Sorry edition.

Glenn Reynolds, on The Secret:

Rallies don’t win elections. Neither do drum circles. Organizing does. Let Occupiers and Tea Partiers alike take note.

Although one wonders whether the former will quite get that the trick is not to keep organizing yourself until a hundred-strong group consists of one hundred working groups of one.

#rsrh Little Billy learns about democracy. #ows

In a handy, 1950s-didactic drawing fashion.  My major issue with it?  Nowhere does it include the line “Those Jew-hating, Commie-loving, low-rent drooling freaks in the Occupy movement.”  Admittedly, that line is not really compatible with the overall style of the piece, so I suppose that its omission was unavoidable.

What, there may be people out there who don’t like that comment about the Occupiers?  Hey, funny thing: I don’t like people who shove 78 year old women down the stairs because Mommy and Daddy couldn’t tell the difference between money, and love and attention.  So I guess that it all evens out.

Occupy DC tries, fails to trigger Mob incident.

Background: Americans for Prosperity is having its annual summit this weekend, and the Occupy movement decided to send some people over to disrupt it – which is to say, they tried to rush the building.  They failed, of course – the American Left simply is not very good at demonstrations* – but in the process of expressing their inner kindergarteners (the ones that weren’t using actual kindergarteners as props/riot shields, that is) some protesters got hit by a car.  And we almost had an incident over it –  only it turns out that ‘protesters got hit by a car’ actually means ‘some protesters threw themselves in front of a car.’

Imagine my surprise:

The Circle closes on #OWS.

The cycle is completed: the past and the future have merged, to become the eternal Now.  The prophecy has been fulfilled and the revelations made clear.  A man with no mask and tattered regal finery has come to the midnight feasting hall; the star-bruised sky itself bears witness to the rightness of this moment.  Things have become again as they were, and the memory of a time when things were not as they now are fades like the memory of a half-seen teardrop on the face of a passerby.  All is as it has always been.

THE GIANT PUPPET PEOPLE HAVE JOINED THE OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT.

At one of Arts and Culture’s meetings—held adjacent to 60 Wall Street, at a quieter public-private indoor park that’s also the atrium of Deutsche Bank—it dawned on Joe [Therrian]: “I have to build as many giant puppets as I can to help this thing out—people love puppets!”

(Via PJ Tatler) As God is my witness, the only thing that I added in that quote was Joe Therrian’s last name. (more…)

#rsh Dagnabbit, Ed Morrissey beat me to the punch…

Kipling and all. My original draft after the fold; guess I shouldn’t have decided to wait until tonight to record the song.

In the meantime, here’s a decent tune to sing the Kipling poem to.

#OWS releases coloring book in order to boost public image.

Assuming that it’s not just some ruthless capitalist making a buck.  In which case: Go, Team Adam Smith.

I want to show you something.  It’s called the Occupy – A Grown-Up Coloring Book Novel*, and while Hot Air is fully justified in eye-rolling it to the oblivion that such a thing deserves I’d like to point out my immediate observation** was as follows: Hey, guess what’s not on that cover?

That’s right: liberal arts majors.  Or social science ones.

Guess they had some difficulty coming up with a suitable candidate…

NYPD utilizing #OWS for indigent relief efforts?

(Via Jammie Wearing Fool) Which is a polite way of saying “New York cops allegedly loading Zuccotti Park up with real homeless.”

…while officers may be in a no-win situation, at the mercy of orders carried on shifting political winds and locked into conflict with a so-far almost entirely non-violent protest movement eager to frame the force as a symbol of the oppressive system they’re fighting, the NYPD seems to have crossed a line in recent days, as the park has taken on a darker tone with unsteady and unstable types suddenly seeming to emerge from the woodwork. Two different drunks I spoke with last week told me they’d been encouraged to “take it to Zuccotti” by officers who’d found them drinking in other parks, and members of the community affairs working group related several similar stories they’d heard while talking with intoxicated or aggressive new arrivals.

Read, as they say, the whole thing.  And after you do, we’ll discuss. (more…)
