Union Square Locals on OWS Clowns: “They Smell Like Wild Piss”

Posted by on Mar 26, 2012 at 4:00 pm

The usual inhabitants of Union Square aren’t exactly fond of the bedraggled OWS lowlifes. Who can blame them?

“They smell like wild piss,” screamed a lanky skateboarder last night at the large crowds that had assembled on the steps as part of Occupy Wall Street in Union Square. “What are ya’ll still doing here?” A pair of BMX riders had a little more sympathy, saying the message of the movement is ultimately a good thing even if it means a little less room at the highly active public space.

More here.

We had our own interaction with a local around 5:00 p.m., when we were walking down 15th st. and Irving Plaza. A young man approached us.

“Have you been over there,” the dread-locked kid asked us, shifting his backpack so he could point over to the square. “It’s nuts.”

We had heard about the protests…were they really out of control?

“Yeah!” The young man exclaimed. “Especially when you are tripping on acid. I just had to like, get out of there before I started to feel bad about things.”

Some video gold via the first link. Wait for the third guy about 25 seconds in for the fun. Listen to the very end.

    definition of pathetic: your lofty movement is viewed with contempt by skaters.
    Second: so low, even nancy pelosi won’t suck up to you anymore.

    Meh. You should have seen Union Square back in the 70s when my father worked on 15th St and Union Sq W. You wouldn’t even step into the park in those days, except for, maybe, the middle of the day.

    Losers. Union Square has always attracted them (probably the location – near NYU.)

    I remember after 9/11…a day after actually….the peacenicks were protesting U.S. aggression in Union Square, singing “Give peace a chance” and painting peace signs on the statue of George Washington.
