I suppose for an encore performance they’ll be calling them poo-poo heads. Seriously, have these people looked in a mirror lately? They’re saying someone else looks stupid?
Denver police forced stubborn protestors out of Civic Center park early this evening, tearing down illegally pitched tents.
About half of the protesters had started to leave Lincoln Park and Civic Center after a parlay with police. But half had voted to stay and some of them blocked Broadway about 5:15 p.m.
Riot police moved quickly to clear Broadway. At 5:30 p.m., Broadway was closed by police between Colfax and 14th avenues. Lincoln had been closed earlier as police gathered.
A city garbage truck pulled up as some protesters continued to chant anti-police slogans: “You look stupid in your helmets and with your clubs …. This a peaceful assembly — no weapons allowed.”
If you need an idea what a pathetic group this is, Kurt Schlichter has an account from the silliness Friday when these idiots ran up against a gathering of conservative bloggers.
The big lesson of the Battle of BlogCon? When the Occupiers encounter resistance – real resistance that attacks their cherished premises with mockery and contempt – they will fold. This is a generation of special snowflakes, of kids instilled with self-esteem instead of a drive to achieve. No one has ever called them idiots before and treated them accordingly.
And they can’t take it. They’ve never had to defend their views against people who think they’re stupid. They simply don’t know how. The Occupy movement is performance art, not political science. It is an information operation, not an authentic, organic expression of beliefs.
They have not earned respect and they don’t deserve it. Don’t “engage” them, don’t “reason” with them, don’t try to “understand” their views.
Mock them. Treat them like the buffoons they are. And win.
