What began as an absurdly headlined epic march to Washington that later swelled to a massive crowd of 22 people will arrive in Washington today, and who knows, they may have a few dozen people on board.
To give you an idea of how in the tank the media is for this pathetic movement, the Washington Post offers a fawning story and pictorial essay chronicling the long march to nowhere.
Almost two weeks ago, 21 Occupy Wall Street protesters decided to take the movement on the road, in a march from New York’s Zuccotti Park to the White House. Their goal: to spread the movement to the 12 cities and small towns they would pass through along the way, and to protest the supercommittee’s likely decision to retain Bush tax cuts “for the rich,” or “one percent.”
The protesters embarked on the 231-mile-trek with a $3,000 check from Occupy Wall Street. But the marchers soon found they didn’t need the money, as they received donations of food and cash, cigarettes and deodorant from local residents and passersby. Occupy movements also sprang up or grew larger in their wake in places such as New Brunswick and Trenton, N.J.
While some of the original 21 marchers dropped out because of missing toenails, shin splints or fevers, new marchers have since joined, so that more than twice as many protesters will arrive in Washington Tuesday.
On Wednesday, the Occupiers intend to hold a “day of action,” to shut down part of the city in protest of the failure by 12 lawmakers to reach a deal that would ease the tax burden on the “99 percent.”
Here’s a really stirring image.
Owen Johnson of North Pownal, Vt., walked barefoot. Johnson says he hasn’t been able to find shoes that fit his left ankle since being hit by a car while hitch-hiking in 2010. Johnson wore a hand-made coat and hat, and weaved dreamcatchers as he marched. “I’d also like to make my own shoes,” he says.
Here the moonbats occupied a convenience store somewhere along the route.
Obviously a movement so massive is sweeping the nation and simply cannot be stopped. We can only hope to contain them!
This guys sums up the laziness of this hapless movement.
Dylan Bozlee, of Hilo, Hawaii, has his foot taped by volunteer EMT David McClintock of Philadelphia at the Occupy Philadelphia encampment at City Hall on Nov. 15. Bozlee dropped out of college at the University of Hawaii to join Occupy, and says he’d rather travel across America than get a job. “Do I want to work? Only if I wanted a home, wife, kids and a dog. If not, I think you’re ruining your life,” he said. Before the march, Bozlee was a member of the Class Warfare camp at Zuccotti Park in New York, where he says he joined other anarchists in teaching passersby about the concept of warfare of the lower classes against the upper class. His inspiration? “When I saw the pepper spraying by Toni Baloney,” or Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna whose spray hit penned-in female protesters.
Some people just choose to be losers. That’s their problem.
