Theater of the Absurd

09 Oct

At first the “Occupy Wall Street” folks were mildly amusing. Unemployed college graduates being resentful that having gone to college they are just now learning that a college degree does not guarantee a job. Sleep in the park a few days, get some media attention, whine about your student loans, then go home feeling self-righteous and fooling yourself into thinking you made a difference. After all, they were protesting against banks. They were trying to slay the evil corporate dragons! Chalk it up to their youthful naivete. But now they are getting annoying, and it is getting worse. 

The expansion of this “movement” is of course no accident. Now that the protesters have gotten disruptive, having caused the Air and Space Museum to shut down, this disruption seems destined to increase. (For those who didn’t know, the Air and Space Museum was a previously undisclosed shill for the banks and corporations. Now you know!). With growing participation from labor unions and verbal support from Hugo Chavez this is looking bad.

Disruption of legitimate business and public activity is the left’s stock in trade. How long was state government in Wisconsin shut down? Remember the sit-ins from the ’70s?  Funny, I don’t remember the Young Americans for Freedom shutting down any universities. But the left, if they don’t like you they just shut you down. But it is not totalitarian, just freedom of speech, according to the media. 

Keep your eyes on this growing “movement”. With a President who was a community organizer this appears to resonate with him. His political position is precarious and his supporters can read the polls as well as the rest of us. What else do they have to fall back on? Class warfare rhetoric and tax proposals are not working the way the President was hoping, but if you can scare people…..well…….lots of bets are off.

    This movement will culminate in a disaster at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC next year, which will resemble the Democrats’ Chicago Convention in 1968, with rioting, property damage and mayhem. Which will result in an even more resounding defeat for Democrats than it did the last time.

    Just like a segment of the Democrat Party embraced the anti-VietNam war movement back in the sixties, which gave that movement false hope, The ObamaCrats are doing the exact same thing with this lot.

    And what evil banking corporation houses it’s headquarters in Charlotte? The one the left (particularly little dick Durbin) is targeting for raising their ATM card fees in response to Dodd/Frank….

    Bank of America

    What could go wrong?

    I might just need a front row seat for this.

        Yes, we’re very proud of our new correspondent, John D’Oh! We’re paying him the big bucks just like a real newsy org.

        And by big bucks I mean that I promised to buy him a beer the next time I see him.
