Stronger Than Ever! Tens of Protesters Descend on the NYSE

Posted by on Nov 17, 2011 at 7:16 am

The media dutifully regurgitated the absurd claims of the failed OWS protesters than tens of thousands of protesters would shut down the New York Stock Exchange starting at 7 am today.

So how’s that working out?

6:59 AM We’re on the move now, down to Zuccotti Park. Some protesters are walking, others are taking the train.

The group, about 50 people, is walking slow and fairly orderly down Thompson Street, at times joining in a group chant of “We are the 99%!”

As they moved towards Bleecker Street, chanting, a woman began screaming at them from her second floor window.

“Quiet down! Stop shouting, people are trying to sleep!” She yelled. To which the group began chanting again “We are the 99%!”

The woman then laid into the group in a profanity laced tirade. The “99%” chant continued and a few protesters yelled to the woman, “We love you!”  

About 50 people?
We can see this peaceful, fairly orderly even is getting off to a rousing start.

The Fox News reporter is letting the crowd know when he is doing his live shot and the crowd is showing up on cue and shouting him down.

Democracy in action!

It’s going to be ugly today, folks. This is the final, dying gasp of a failed, far-left fringe movement. They’re now  hugely unpopular and throwing a city-wide temper tantrum while tying up traffic and commerce will only further alienate the people they purport to represent.

Chief organizer Barack Obama was unavailable for comment.

The always clever Occu-criminals will also be cleverly disguised as normal people.

The “day of action” is to begin early, with protesters converging on Wall Street camouflaged in business suits hoping to blend in with office workers trooping out of the subway.

“We will rise from beneath. They can’t stop all of us. It’s going to get crazy,” vowed one organizer. “They took the first shot Tuesday night. [Thursday] we return fire. We will be peaceful, but we will resist.”

Nothing like some peaceful violence.

OWS organizer Chris Reider, 49, of Freeport, L.I., predicted the “day of action” would reenergize a movement sapped by police raids and signs of waning public support.

“It’s going to be massive and historic,” Reider said.


Update 7:50:  Confusion reigns:

Tiny rain drops fall now as the group arrives at Zuccotti park.

As opposed to those dreaded giant rain drops.
The protesters have quieted down considerably, there is a more serious, determined toneto the group.As they come up to Liberty Plaza, however, the group begins their chant, louder than ever now, “We are the 99%!” Surprisingly, there is no response from the crowd gathered outside of Zuccotti.
That’s probably because they’re not as sympathetic as this so-called reporter.
Mike Esperson is on his cell phone now, apparently attempting to get orders from organizers and figure out where to go. The group looks a bit disorganized and confused.

They’ve looked that way for two months now. This is a surprise?

Marchers are trying to turn down Pine. NYPD holding their ground at Nassau and Pine. Protesters cursing at cops. Calling them pigs.

Ahh, so peaceful!
Update 8:30:  In a surprise development, the Communist World Workers Party is in the house!
The mob has now “swelled” to several hundred. Where are the tens of thousands we were promised?
A group of small children trying to take a class trip look afraid as protesters momentarily blocked the childrens route.

But … but … but what about the children?

Update 9am: A good Twitter feed to follow here.

Protesters seem concerned that if they all get arrested today at Wall Street no one will be left to go to subways later today


Check out this pathetic crew:

One thing these people do is bring the ugly, and they bring it strong.

 Update 9:20:  In another shocking development, the mob has become violent.

Violence has broken out at Broad and Beaver. Officers falling down. Woman on the ground screaming. Several arrests. A photographer was shoved to the ground.

Update 10:55: More peaceful violence!

Violence is again breaking out on William Street as NYPD are trying to wrestle back control of the street. Its complete chaos right now.

    If those 50 people are the 99%, then there are, what, 51 people in the world?

    I’m pretty sure there are more than that… let me count…

    Over on the Occupy Wall Street site, they have a running feed, and they appear to be running a disinformation campaign.

    At 9:11AM, they claimed the opening bell was delayed, but the market normally opens at 9:30AM, so this was wrong.

    The market opened at 9:30, and at about that time, the OWS page had a post saying that the 9:11 entry was wrong, and that the market was not delayed.

    I checked the site a few minutes ago, and the entry saying that the opening wasn’t delayed had been removed, and there is now an entry at 10:16 stating that there is going to be a victory march to Liberty Square to celebrate the delay of the opening of the markets.

    It appears that they have their own reality distortion field.

    Saw all sorts of helicopters early this morning hovering over Canal Street (I live in Village hi rise).

    Yes, I too can’t wait for the red hordes to storm the bastille, Duma, Reichstag (pick one) and proclaim victory for the people.

    Meh. I saw this show 30 years ago at Brooklyn College when the head of the Puerto Rican Studies Dept. (yup, that was [still is?] a real dept. at BC) led a group of “students” and occupied a building. Then Chancellor Kneller called in the cops and they busted heads.

    Revolution quelled. Or in the case of the OWS crowd KWELLed.


    Wow, a meh and a heh in one post.

    I guess they are going to follow the founder’s advice and declare victory. That shows what I know. I thought you had to win something to do that, but apparently, I was wrong.

    Damn, wish I’d been there. It would ahve been a lot of fun to walk through that “line”.

    Fuzzlemutter, lets add pathogenic to the list.Moreover, thanks to the “leadership” of Bloom cluster fu.k, you could have ended this disease much earlier without the cost rising to the taxpayers.

    I actually was at Broad and Beaver at, oh, 9:40 or so. I saw a woman sitting on the ground being tended to by several bored-looking emts. Obviously she suffered grievous injuries at the hands of the jackbooted arms of the fascist state. Or not.

    I didn’t see any blood, and what very few Occupiers were about were looking very bored.

    It impressed me so powerfully that I didn’t even think to take a picture.

    I wonder if Men’s Warehouse supplied suits gratis to the freaks. The owner of Men’s Warehouse is a sympathetic lefty. Boycott them!

  10. J.J. Sefton on 17/17/11 at 5:51 pm

    Men’s Wearhouse clothing is in fact a half grade below that of your average kid’s K-Mart Halloween costume. Essentially, whip-stitched toilet paper.

    And as for the “bloodied” protestors, they had plenty of time to stock up on ketchup packets at the McDonald’s that they trashed for the past 2 months.
