The CH 2.0 Irony Meter is off the scale-kinda like one of those old Warner Brothers cartoons when something is going so fast, the speedometer breaks, and spring pops out. The sad tragedy of it all is that the Occupy Wall Street crowd isn’t in on the joke. For the set up, here is some coverage from the NY Post…
Newly sprung ex-cons and vagrants rousted from other parks are crashing the Occupy Wall Street protest, where gourmet meals are free and boozy, drugfueled parties are on tap, the movement’s leaders griped yesterday.
“They’re telling people who leave prison to go to Zuccotti Park,” lamented Daniel Zetah, a leader of the OWS community-relations group.
Volunteer Lauren Digioia, 26, said, “We have drug dealing going on here, gang activity, public intoxication. There are a lot of instigators. There are a lot of vultures.
“Everyone knows we give out free food and sleeping bags, and it’s a perfect opportunity for squatters.”
The derelicts, organizers say, are terrorizing people who are there to support the movement.
“There’s a lot of drugs, alcohol, assault [and] theft [by] the homeless groups coming in. We’ve had meetings all day to brainstorm what to do,’’ said Zetah, 34.
The hardened thugs are having a field day preying on overly trusting protesters, many of whom hail from small towns, leaders said.
On Monday, a 24-year-old Brooklyn woman originally from Brownville, Maine — population 1,260 — told cops that three men threatened her because she’d fingered one of their pals for brutally punching her and two others, another woman and a man in the face Oct. 11.
“You got our friend arrested. We’re going to kill you. Watch your back,” one of them told her.
OK then, our very naive would-be Communist overlords want an all powerful government to steal from others, and give to them. Of course, this is nothing more than a massive expansion of the welfare state. And, we know that the purpose of the welfare state is to encourage dependence, and create a permanent voting bloc for the Democratic Party. So, when the Occupy movement, and it’s glowing message of social justice comes to town, dependent class members, as well as sociopaths show up to exploit it. They are looking directly at the consequences of their ideology, and they don’t get it! They forget that in the land of duckies, bunnies, and unicorns, some wolves will come for the easy kill.
There is a danger in the long run. These idealistic useful idiots do get infiltrated by strongmen, that eventually take over and cause a great deal of trouble.
I really ought to thank these people. I can’t say that in my memory, the hard left has so exposed themselves so thoroughly. The longer this goes on, the more stupid these people look.
There’s a reason for that.
