Recently outraged Internet theologians took umbrage at my refusal to join the effort to transform Jesus into a big government, liberal Democrat that supports the Occupy squatters.
Most echoed secular interpreters of Christ who claim, “Jesus shares many of the values of those in the Occupy movement.”
I contend Jesus had plenty of time to confront civil authority, yet Christ focused on religious authority. He didn’t discuss politics with the centurion or tax rates with Matthew. In fact the only system of government approved by God was that of the judges, and the Jews disliked that arrangement so much they demanded a king.
Democracy and social justice are not mentioned in the New Testament because it’s not a political science or economics text. The Word is directed at individuals and not Wall Street, corporations, the GOP, Congress or the Koch brothers.
Solutions will come, if ever, from individuals acting on their own and not collectivists like Nancy Pelosi telling us what to do. But I try to keep an open mind. Maybe I haven’t spent enough time with Occupy to form an accurate opinion.
Fortunately, my daughter saved me a trip and reported back on her encounter with those New Testament individuals working to establish the Kingdom here on earth. Last Saturday night Occupy was marching through Downtown DC to block Obama’s appearance at that den of inequity, the Alfalfa Club Dinner. My daughter’s car was stopped at an intersection blocked by Occupy marchers and in no time at all these “Christ–like” crusaders for Justice saw she was a young woman alone.
They surrounded her vehicle and began the spreading their word. Some dropped their pants to expose my daughter to the persuasive message contained in their genitals. Others sat on the hood and pounded their fists. All this took place accompanied by an inspiring soundtrack of curses, vulgarities and sexual harassment.
She wasn’t mistaken for a member of the 1 percent, gloating over the misfortunes of the poor. She drives a rice burner approaching 135,000 miles that’s decorated with dents, dings and rust spots courtesy of dad’s attempt to repair a broken window.
She was singled out because Occupy harbors an increasing collection of gutless thugs who get off on frightening women and the weak.
There were approximately five offenses worthy of arrest: genital exposure, attempted destruction of property, blocking an intersection, disorderly conduct, assault and wearing a mask to conceal identity (particularly ironic since these laws were passed by “progressives” to fight the Klan). Yet the DC cop standing and idly watching did exactly nothing and the media seldom reports this type of outrage.
I’m wracking my brain here, but I can’t find equivalent behavior on the part of the Apostles. Josephus writes of a Roman soldier starting a riot when he mooned Jews from his perch in Antonia Fortress overlooking Jerusalem, but that’s hardly part of the Gospel.
What’s amazing is how Democrats and fellow–travelers in the media demonize the TEA party and romanticize Occupy leeches. When the ugly undercurrent of the real Occupy movement finally makes headlines, the excuse is always these lawbreakers are “fringe elements” and not part of the main movement.
Really? Then why have there been almost 4,000 Occupy arrests? That’s an active fringe. You don’t find that when searching arrests at TEA party events.
But even the TEA party has a fringe, so lets compare.
TEA party fringe believes the Bilderberg Group is a real threat. Occupy fringe defecates on police cars.
TEA party fringe believes the moon landing was faked. Occupy fringe discourages a rape victim from contacting police.
TEA party fringe believes there was a second shooter on the grassy knoll. Occupy fringe smashes its way into Oakland City Hall, vandalizes children’s artwork and burns the American flag.
TEA party fringe believes the US should return to the gold standard. Occupy fringe urinates on food vendors in NYC when they stop giving free food to Occupy parasites.
Law enforcement wizards in DC may finally be noticing a trend. U.S. Park police commanders have decided, after four months of hand wringing, that it might be time to enforce the law against camping in McPherson Square.
Warnings have been issued against camping and its related activity, sleeping. According to spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser officers have been ordered to investigate tents for clues that include “sleeping bags, teddy bears and kitchen equipment.”
After reading that it’s difficult to decide which group is more pathetic. The unfortunate Park Police officers forced to search for binkies and blankets before making an arrest; or the Occupy cheering section that continues to insist this confederacy of creeps is on board with the teaching of Jesus.
The Occupy Wall Street mob violence flared up again this past weekend in Oakland, Calif., resulting in over 400 arrests while many mainstream media puppeteers still refer to the Occupy protesters as being involved in a “peaceful” historic national movement across America. Yahoo has decided to slap a retread of a Reuters article title today that is titled, Arrests in Oakland protests rise to over 400 into their Destination 2012 section, which is supposed to be about the 2012 national elections. How does that decision line up with the Occupy Wall Street operatives and their constant claims that the movement is not political? Certain people are trying to give this “movement” validity by inserting it into a national politics section. Reuters goes out of it’s way to try to distance this weekend’s violence from the Occupy Wall Street mob several times in the above-linked article with the following tidbits: (emphasis added)
“The protests in most cities have been peaceful and sparked a national debate over how much of the country’s wealth is held by the richest 1 percent of the population. President Barack Obama has sought to capitalize on the attention by calling for higher taxes on the richest Americans.”
“Oakland Mayor Jean Quan accused a “violent splinter group” of the Occupy movement of fomenting the Saturday protests and using the city as its playground.” ( that would be the same Mayor who spoke at an Occupy Oakland Rally and largely refused to clamp down on these misfits, even when rampant drug abuse, rape, theft, and overall filthy conditions were being reported in these Occupy camps across America, and especially in Oakland)
“Crews cleaned up Oakland’s historic City Hall on Sunday from damage inflicted overnight during violent anti-Wall Street protests that resulted in about 400 arrests, marking one of the largest mass arrests since nationwide protests began last year.” (Notice the concentrated effort to not call these people who they really are, as in Occupy Wall Street protesters?)
The media is proven to be complicit in attempting to separate the Occupiers into two categories to nudge the public perception of just who these Occupiers really are. The thousands of violent acts, rapes, drug arrests, and massive reports of theft are all put into the “violent splinter group category” in order to protect the supposedly peaceful, fun-loving, innocent rest of the group. The Occupiers claim to represent 99% of Americans while the fact remains that the informed citizenry finds them repulsive and disgusting, as many surveys have reported. Politico shows us that, at one point, 37% of Americans viewed the OWS crowd favorably. That was the headline, by the way, while ignoring the other 63% of America that sees the OWS crowd for what it is: A bunch of nasty, defecating on police cars and urinating in the street, rabble-rousers, rapists, anarchists and low-life criminals who have no respect for the rest of society. Yet the media manipulators still paint them as some type of grassroots movement that is endeared by all of America, including Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.
Of course the media has to paint the OWS mob in an angelic light, as we see in this article that the Occupiers do, in fact, have the support of the DNC and Barack Obama. Just ask yourselves one question: When, if ever, have you heard President Obama, any Democrat, or anyone in their media-puppet stable denounce the OWS perpetrators for the numerous reports of rape, theft, and their overall disrespect for the rest of society? Just watch how the media downplays this weekend’s 400+ Occupy Wall Street arrests in Oakland, just like they downplayed the planned shutdown of many of America’s shipping ports back on Monday, Dec, 12th 2011. To note that after that action, Best Buy ended up with a shortage of electronics products that were ordered for Christmas. Coincidence? The public will never know, as the mainstream media largely refused to report on the mob action targeting the nation’s shipping ports 13 days before Christmas.
This latest Occupy Wall Street episode in Oakland actually started on Saturday, when the Occupiers tried to take over an empty downtown convention center to establish a new headquarters. The Occupiers don’t think they should have to pay for anything in life, they just take it. To prove this point, they hurled bottles, pipe bombs, smoke bombs, burning flares, and assorted improvised explosive devices at police who were stopping them from taking over a convention center on Saturday. The police also warned the Occupy Wall Street protesters that they would not tolerate the continued violence and overt lawlessness on Sunday. Occupy Wall Street chose to ignore the warning, thus over 400 of them were arrested.
Finally, after months of ignoring the Occupy Wall Street protesters in our nation’s capitol on orders from the administration of Barack Obama under the guise of free speech, the National Park Service will start enforcing the decades old ban on camping overnight in McPherson Square and Freedom Plaza on Monday at noon. We can look forward to more false-flag media stories about supposed police brutality and abuse tomorrow coming out of DC, as the pattern of Occupy Wall Street protesters baiting police officers with camera’s at the ready will be sure to continue.
Update: Watch the mob violence here.
The following video comes to us via WTSP.com 10 NEWS-Tampa Bay, Florida, from an article titled, Are Tampa police using tanks to threaten Occupy protestors? Day in and day out we are inundated with false-flag sensationalism-seeking “news” headlines posed as questions such as this one. To prove this point unequivocally, the article and video itself tell us NO, Tampa PD is not in fact threatening Occupy Tampa with a tank, as their headline implies.
Members of the Occupy Tampa movement say TPD is cruising by in the big, armored trucks. Pictures spread around the country over Facebook and Twitter, leading to speculation that TPD was moving in with the tanks.”I think that it’s just another brick in a larger program of intimidation,” said protestor Joe Jay.
To which Tampa PD replies that it was just a coincidence, as the vehicle was in route to the Great American teach-in event being held in Tampa at the time. Of course that doesn’t stop 10 news from trying to further the irresponsible false-flag denouncing of our honorable police departments across America, as we see in their following paragraph:
That controversy comes as officials in California investigate why police pepper-sprayed non-violent protestors on the campus of UC-Davis over the weekend.
Which has been proven to have been a pre-planned set-up to prevent police from removing Occupiers across the country who are breaking the law by paralyzing them with false charges of police brutality.
After sifting through 150 pages on Google, every one of them spreading misinformation about the UC Davis pepper spray incident, I found this headline from NewsBusters: UC Davis Student Admits Protesters Surrounded Cops and Wouldn’t Let Them Leave
As Occupy-loving media continue to express outrage over protesters getting pepper-sprayed by campus police officers at the University of California at Davis last week, a surprising admission by one of the attendees was uncovered in an interview Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman did Monday.
One of the pepper-sprayed students told Goodman, “We had encircled them [campus police], and they were trying to leave, and they were trying to clear a path. And so, we sat down, linked arms, and said that if they wanted to clear the path, they would have to go through us
In the meantime, thousands of media outlets on TV and the internet are falsely portraying these incidents as police brutality and the uninformed masses are eating it up like starving hyenas at an all-you-can-eat free buffet today. Marxist/Anarchist operational methods call for the complete paralysis of the police force to prevent them from enforcing the rule of law. This is what is behind all of these false-flag police brutality claims coming from within the Occupy protests. Beware of the irresponsible media operatives promoting the degradation of our honorable police forces by promoting the lawlessness of the Occupy protests today. While people may laugh at the ignorant buffoons in the first video trying to claim the Tampa PD threatened them with a tank, take note that the false flag News 10-Tampa article was also used as a vehicle to promote and parrot the lies about the UC Davis pepper spray incident in it. One last aspect that seems to be forgotten in all of this false-flag police brutality, is the common-sense fact that pepper spray is an approved non-lethal weapon that is nationally approved to subdue criminals with out harming them. Refute the UC Davis supposed police brutality-pepper spray lies every time you see or hear them being parroted on the internet and across America. Without laws and law enforcement we are in a world of trouble. We need to support our law enforcement officers, not allow them to be paralyzed into not enforcing our laws with false claims of police brutality by the Occupy common criminals. Support the cops, not the criminals!
2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

- Last night at 1am, more than 1000 NYPD officers were summoned for what was said to be a training exercise near Zucotti Park, the home of the Occupy Wall Street protesters for the past few months. In a hint of what was to come, the NYPD instructed the officers to bring their hats and bats, as in riot gear. In a sign of the times, the NYPD actually made up flyers to pass out that explained why they were cascading down upon Zucotti Park at 1am on a Monday night. The flyer read as follows:
- Note the political correctness in the flyer that says the Occupiers may return to the park, but now must actually obey the rules of no tents, sleeping bags, etc.? They could have avoided this whole mess if they had simply demanded that the rule of law was obeyed in the very beginning of this debacle. Meanwhile, they have let the community and businesses suffer unnecessarily for months on end due to the filthy unsanitary conditions that prevented the real 99% of the community from using the parks/city streets/subways safely. So after months of the media painting this scourge as some kind of an innocent youth protest, during which we have seen rapes, drug overdoses, murders,massive theft and overall filth that produced a lice epidemic and two verified cases of tuberculosis, they have finally been given eviction notices by the NYPD. It’s about damn time!
- What brought on this sudden decision to enforce the rule of law, that the politically correct cowards (the Mayor of Oakland comes to mind here) across America refused to do right from the beginning ? It turns out Mayor Bloomberg had to answer calls about the posters around town that announced that the Occupiers would be closing down The New York Stock Exchange at 7am on…Tuesday! Bloomberg had to announce that the Stock Exchange will be open for business as usual and promised them that they will be able to get to work on Tuesday, rest assured. The protesters were also promising to Occupy the subways in all five boroughs of NYC at 3 pm, and “Take the square” referring to Foley square, with posters of the infamous Tiananmen square revolt for the public’s comparison. A small group of businessmen also appeared at city hall on Monday to express their disgust at how their rights to earn a living were being denied by letting this lawlessness continue unabated. Bloomberg finally got up the courage to take back NYC from the .001% ! Excuse me if I do not congratulate the Mayor here. This should have been stopped months ago. I hope Bloomberg and the other mayors across America that encouraged this lawlessness are made to pay restorations to all the businesses that lost money, and also pay for the massive cleanup of their cities...out of their own pockets, not the taxpayers account.
- Seeing as to how the Occupy Wall Street, Zucotti Park movement is considered to be the originator of this movement that spread across America and the world, seeing them evicted for being the non-paying, irresponsible, filth-inducing, lawless bunch of dis-respectable people they truly are will surely spell the end for all of the Occupy Park Benches protests. The new movement of kicking the Occupiers out should be called the “Taking back the rights of the true 99% of Americans to go to work unmolested and enjoy clean, sanitary cities across America movement.”
- PS: Last time I checked, the Tea Party movements were never evicted from anything. They protested within the law, and then cleaned up and went home. Can any of the lunatics in the media that try to equate these filthy Occupiers with the Tea Party movement, be counted on to show the honesty and integrity to report on the total cost to the working taxpayer these protests will be found to have incurred as cities across America start cleaning up and disinfecting the Occupiers mess? Don’t hold your breath. Occupy Wall Street, Portland, Seattle and others are already shut down. The rest will be soon to follow.
- UPDATE: 5:30 am NYPD reports an initial arrest total of around 70 protesters. Dumpsters now moving in to start hauling away the massive amount of tents and trash.
For those in two–income households who have been wondering what the long–term effects of parking children in daycare would be, the results are in and the news is not good.
Quite a few members of the daycare generation are currently occupying Obamavilles in New York City, D.C., Oakland, CA and points in between. This is a natural outcome of society’s reliance on strangers to raise our kids. The daycare generation’s formative years led them to become accustomed to large, mostly benevolent, third–party organizations that dried their tears, filled their tummies and enforced the rules for sharing.
Inside this primary colors utopia, the daycare generation finger–painted signs, beat on the furniture, sang songs and it was absolutely free! At snack time Juanita never charged little Belgium or Saskatchewan for the goldfish or juice boxes.
It’s only natural, now that the daycare generation no longer depends on KinderCare, that they turn to the largest organization of all and ask Uncle Sam to make everything all better.
I had the opportunity to experience this firsthand last weekend at The Koch Konspiracy, better known as the American’s for Prosperity Conference, held at the Washington Convention Center in D.C. During Friday’s Reagan dinner an occupy type attempted to disrupt the keynote speech. It started with a ripple of movement toward the front of the ballroom and then escalated into the same incoherent shouting you see in coverage of the New York City occupiers, only closer.
During breaks in the action during dinner, attendees went to the windows and watched occupiers block the street in front of the convention center. This is a familiar community organizing technique based on the theory that adding to gridlock with impromptu traffic jams is a sure way to generate support for your cause.
Once blocking traffic grew boring, the occupy mob attempted to storm the doors of the convention center and force their way inside. Security prevented this, but when the event concluded around 10:00 PM, the mob blocked the doors preventing the attendees from leaving.
These brave voices for the 99 percent used very small children in some barricades, putting them in front of the class warriors and against the door, so it could not be opened without hitting little Buffy. Other exits were blocked by jamming wooden poles through the door handles. All the entrances were treated to the usual smug tautological signs (“I am a human being”), drums and aggressively screamed obscenities.
A well–run police department would have responded by sending the civil disturbance unit. The D.C. department sent a handful of outnumbered officers who did little to clear the doors.
(As an aside, ask yourself what the city’s response would have been if NRA members had blocked the doors to Busboys & Poets or some other D.C. hotbed of failed ideology?)
D.C. Council member Tommy Wells (D–Delusional) was quoted by the WaPost as saying; “This is a very difficult job for police. Their job is keeping the protesters and people coming out of the convention center safe.”
No. The job of the police is to keep the peace and protect the law abiding. It’s not to observe the tantrums of this narcissistic mob and make a pathetic attempt to mediate between the innocent and the inciter.
On Monday, Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said she’s had all she can stand and she can’t stands no more, describing the occupiers as, “increasingly confrontational and violent.” She promised the department will “adjust tactics as needed to assure safety.”
Somehow I don’t find a 60–hour response time to a near riot very reassuring.
Mayor Vincent Gray (D–Detached) pleaded with the rabble to “show restraint” so the movement is not “discredited by violence.” But as usual he’s not exactly abreast of the news.
In Oakland almost 100 occupiers were arrested after they threw pipes, chunks of concrete, firebombs and fired Roman candles at police. In Boston crack dealers were arrested at the occupy site. In Dallas, New York, Cleveland and Baltimore there have been reports of rape in occupy sites and I’m not talking about the corporate kind.
And in San Diego street cart vendors who made the mistake of initially giving free food to occupy denizens found themselves under attack by enraged blood and urine–throwing protestors when they decided to start charging for food.
There’s essentially no difference between these pampered and petulant occupiers going on the rampage against the nebulous offense of “corporate greed” and the three–year–old in daycare throwing a tantrum at the conclusion of recess because “it’s not fair!”
They are only older – certainly not wiser.
