Following the success of the “Twilight “ movies, the next hot genre of course would be Zombies. And indeed it’s true, “The Walking Dead “ is in it’s second season. And so too is the legacy media enthralled with the antics of the brain dead Occupy Wall Street zombies.
Today’s revelation “We going to burn New York City to the [expletive] ground on the 17th, ain’t no more talking, they got guns, we got bottles, they got bricks we got rocks, let’s see what they got. In a few days they’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s” prompted quick action by the New York Police Department and an arrest. The second arrest of protester Tinsley in a month. It seems he was arrested just weeks ago for assaulting a Police Officer.
Today’s ruckus stems from OWS’s eviction from Zuccotti Park. But they’ll be back tomorrow to “put an end to Wall Street’s reign of terror”. Bill Dobbs, one of the OWS organizers, told the New York media “Tomorrow is going to be a day of action around the city,” Dobbs said. “I’m looking forward to going after wall street and also galvanizing public support and awareness of what we’re about.” So, after two months, are they actually going to articulate something. I can’t wait… Let’s see, maybe they will ask for hemp filled hacky sacks. So when they are tired of playing with them, they can just smoke them.
But, I really find the phrase “put an end to Wall Street’s reign of terror” very humorous. When I think of “a reign of terror” a different picture comes to mind. I see mafia bosses, teamsters, and union thugs, not Bob Poindexter, the Wall Street corporate bean counter. Although, you could get a nasty stab wound from a sharpened pencil, or protractor. The real “reign of terror” is the constant assault on our personal liberties brought on by an ever increasing Federal Government. The “reign of terror” is the border violence that the current Administration turns a blind eye to. The “reign of terror” is the systematic attacks against Christians and Churches in the middle East in the wake of the Arab spring. The “reign of terror” is not your inability to scrape together the required funds to acquire the next iteration of “Gears of War” or “Modern Warfare”.
The most obvious question is, why are we having to watch this in the first place? Who cares about a rowdy ignorant unwashed collection of malcontents. Rapes have become so prevalent in the OWS camps, that one encampment actually created a tent just for women, to guard against rape. Add drugs, theft, sex (either in pairs, or just by yourself) and poor sanitation habits to the mix, and you have the makings of a serious public health issue. And I’m not just talking about things that can be cured by a silver bullet. For those of you from Lake Jackson, I’m not talking about a Coors Light, penicillin is often called a silver bullet. They claim that Wall Street has stolen their wealth and opportunities, meanwhile they steal from each other, rape each other, and assault each other. They have no regard for the rule of law, because they feel they are above it. The way the OWS protesters treat each other detracts from any message, if they had one, that they are trying to bring attention to.
And by the way, when I see a Che Guevara t-shirt, I’m already automatically tuned out, you’ve already lost me….
… so bring on the revolution, a conservative Republican revolution in 2012!
