Occupy Unmasked


It was Andrew Breitbart’s final project before his untimely death.

And the full movie is about to be released.

Meanwhile…

And currently…

Occupy Unmasked


The other side to the story most people have heard about the Occupy Wall Street and related movements around the globe.

The trailer for the new film produced by Citizens United and directed by Stephen K. Bannon. “Occupy Unmasked” goes deep into the “Occupy” movement and exposes its origins as well as the radical ideas behind “income inequality” that has become the centerpiece of the Obama re-election effort.

OWS was a spontaneous, grass roots movement? Yeah *cough bullshit* OK.

Er, a point of order


Has anyone else noticed the hand signal OWS protesters use for “point of order” looks disturbingly like a certain other hand gesture used in sign language that made the news recently?

An alternative for the alternatives?


Via reader JM Heinrichs, Instapundit has put up a good discussion that could well benefit the white collar university/OWS types.

(And whatever you do, DON’T come to Korea! It’s terrible over here!)

OWS censorship


Far from the Occupy Wall Street being  a “leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions”, they are fast becoming – have become – exactly what they claim to be protesting about.

Their homepage states:

This #ows movement empowers real people to create real change from the bottom up. We want to see a general assembly in every backyard, on every street corner because we don’t need Wall Street and we don’t need politicians to build a better society.

Occupy: procrastinate, deliberate, obfuscate, intimidate

They wanted more power; they wanted to speak. They were also being rank hypocrites. Here is a group purporting to give people a voice and cut through the bureaucratic layers of government and capitalism. Instead, they silenced speech, quashed ideas, and replaced it with their own bureaucratic process reserved for a minority that wanted power. One gray-haired woman who was walking out put it like this: “It was very divisive. Now they are a little group, like the 1 Percent.”

Occupy FAIL


Is anyone surprised it hasn’t stuck at Harvard?

For the past couple of days I’ve seen reports about the “Occupy” movement reaching Harvard — how hundreds of protesters stormed the gates of Harvard Yard Wednesday night, how they were rebuffed by security forces who sealed off the Yard to everyone not possessing a Harvard i.d., but how the protesters with Harvard i.d.s eventually managed to erect a “tent city” next to the John Harvard statue in the Yard.

And after three days?

2 photographers, 2 cops, 0 occupants.
