As American recoiled with disgust over the weekend, the violent images of these disgusting anarchists has the slobbering media back firing up their romantic nostrums about this wild pack of human debris.
Oakland City Hall reopened Monday after municipal employees worked to clean up damage they said was caused over the weekend by Occupy protesters, about 400 of whom were arrested following clashes with police in the Northern California city.
Marvine White was one such worker, called in over the weekend to help scrub graffiti and vacuum floors, CNN affiliate KTVU reported.
“This is not protesting. This is something else. When you protest, you protest. This is madness here,” White said.
The mass arrests, described by police as the largest in city history, appear to have injected new life into the Occupy movement as protesters in a number of American and European cities took to the streets Sunday to express their solidarity with the Occupy Oakland group.
“The Occupy movement will respond, as we have always responded: With an overwhelming show of collective resistance,” Occupy Wall Street said in a statement posted on its website.
Every couple of weeks we see another organized temper tantrum, then we’re told by these delusional schmucks how “overwhelming” they are. Yet their numbers continue to dwindle, propped up only by an adoring media that often outnumbers these protests.
As for injecting life into the movement, it’s s shame that won’t be happening with the parents murdered by the Occupy Oakland maniac.
And now what do you know, but the scumbags burning the flag Saturday have “rekindled” the national debate over flag burning. Well, not really, but the AP will have you believe it.
Many in the crowd outside Oakland City Hall shouted “Burn it! Burn it!” as masked protesters readied to set fire to an American flag. That’s when a woman emerged from the scrum, screaming for them to stop, that it would hurt the cause.
Moments later, the flames began, and suddenly a movement that seemingly vanished weeks ago was back in the spotlight, this time for an act of protest that has long divided the nation and now the movement itself.
The images of the flag-burning went viral in the hours after Saturday’s demonstrations on Oakland’s streets, with Occupy supporters denouncing the act as unpatriotic and a black mark on the movement. Others called it justified.
The flag-burning, however, raised questions about whether the act will tarnish a movement of largely peaceful protests and alienate people who agree with its message against corporate excess and economic inequality.
Largely peaceful? Really?
