Really a shame liberals can’t celebrate like normal people. Here the San Francisco Giants win their third World Series in five seasons and an Occupy Wall Street rally breaks out.
The joy that erupted in San Francisco after the Giants won Game 7 of the World Series quickly turned into the same kind of rollicking orgy of fire, broken bottles, fistfights, sirens and drunkenness that the city endured after the last two world championships.
Fire, fightfights and drunkenness. That’s Nancy Pelosi’s constituency there, folks.
Crowds of partyers set bonfires and rampaged through the Mission District, South of Market area and around AT&T Park, where the Giants thrilled their fans this season. Most of the celebrants were peaceful early on, but just as in 2010 and 2012, thuggery increasingly replaced level-headed revelry as the night grew late.
Two men were treated at San Francisco General Hospital for gunshot wounds that weren’t life-threatening, according to police. One of the victims was shot in the arm in the Mission District at about 8:45 p.m.
Also, police said, a man was stabbed several times at 24th and Valencia streets. He was taken to S.F. General with serious injuries.
Police made several arrests throughout the night. Some officers hit by tossed bottles and fireworks suffered minor injuries, and one was hurt badly enough to be taken to the hospital, said Police Officer Gordon Shyy, a department spokesman.
The heavy stench of booze and marijuana filled the air everywhere the rowdy crowds gathered. Those people not inclined to break things headed home soon after the first spasm of celebration, casting nervous glances at the edgy celebrants staying behind — and then the real troubles began.
The stench of booze, marijuana and violence. Obama’s America in a nutshell.
And, of course, in a sign of the times, there were selfies!

Well, at least they have a lot of practice with this drunken violence:

And they wonder why most of America detests them.
