Occupy Wall Street, Day 9
I don't know why we civilians don't wake up to the fact and realize that we vastly outnumber them.
By "them", of course, I'm referring to the donut-munching, fat fucks of the fascist NYPD who are doing a creditable impression of the basiji in the wake of the Iranian election of June 2009. And, while I understand the necessity of remaining peaceful, that tactic didn't exactly work for the Dodo bird and the NYPD counts on that.
Of course, it still doesn't stop them from making up the usual lies ("resisting arrest", "assaulting an officer", etc) when making arrests by the score. They're so desperate to justify arrests they've even begun citing an obscure 166 year-old law that, get this, bans masks in New York City, as if that's actually enforced on Halloween and New Year's Eve.
The fascist NYPD has even learned a thing or two from Goebbels and have started their own propaganda campaign in claiming the Occupy Wall Street protesters edited out their own illegal actions just prior to the now-infamous pepper-spraying of two woman. Well, here's video shot from a reverse angle and judge for yourself:
So much for that story.
The Occupy Wall Street protesters are not occupying Wall Street any more than the rats and roaches on the streets of New York. If publicity was their aim, they've failed miserably. They were naive enough to think the corporately-driven mainstream media, which have lawyers tell it what it can and can't cover, would give them more than scant attention. The fat, pasty racists of the Tea Party are a sexier lead any day than a bunch of smelly hippies, don'cha know?
Often, when anyone deigns to cover the 9 day-old "occupation", they do so sneeringly, such as this Wall Street whore Julia La Roche, who prefers to focus more on the smell from some of the protesters and a couple of bare boobies rather than the actual reason for the protests (my comment got kicked to "the Bleachers" on Business Insider's worthless website but that's OK: I reproduced it in full on my Facebook page where it'll stay up forever).
So there's a lot of shame and blame to go around: The corporate mainstream media whose nightly telecasts are good only as night lights during fornication. The protesters, who are looking more and more like the defenseless airheads who got their brains smashed by other fascist cops in the 60's for protesting the Vietnam war. You're not occupying anything and no one is listening to you. Go to the Nexus Phase. Anonymous, you listening? Gentlemen, start your hacking.
And the cops?
Well, the cop mentality is timeless, eternal and is completely predicated on fascist paranoia and the scary knowledge that they are outnumbered. The cop mentality is also necessarily a low one because if they had any appreciable cranial capacity, they'd be Republicans on Capitol Hill. Cops are essentially so bereft of brains that they're insensible to the irony that the Wall Street they're protecting by macing innocent women has also looted their pension fund. Even Madison, Wisconsin police were smarter than their counterparts in the NYPD and stood with the protesters last winter even when their own collective bargaining rights weren't under threat (yet) from Scott Walker.
Nonviolence has its time and place but then sometimes it doesn't. We can all agree that John Brown was right and that blood and iron were what was called for to end slavery when he took over Harper's Ferry in 1859. Sometimes you have to get out and actually fight when you know you're dealing with an intractable enemy that would rather die than budge an inch and bring one more job to America, to fork over a extra ha'penny in taxes.
And I think it's time we finally justify that police paranoia.
