This whole Occupy mess has pretty much run its course. They can’t even muster up more than a couple dozen of these losers to harass shoppers in America’s most liberal city.
Bargains and a pretty holiday tree trumped politics Friday night.
Occupy SF activists had hoped to keep shoppers out of downtown San Francisco stores to protest corporate greed, but no matter how hard they yelled, shoppers shoved right on by.
Two dozen Occupy protesters began marching around downtown at sundown, chanting protest slogans. They’d hoped to make their anti-consumption point at the annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Union Square, but the crowd was so massive they couldn’t get near.
The marchers then blocked the intersection of Market and Fourth streets for 15 minutes beginning at 7 p.m., but left when police arrived.
“Don’t use credit cards to show love this holiday,” said Occupier Michael Byrnes, 31.
