I can’t feed my cats and it’s someone’s fault

So the last couple of days has seen a spike in media (and blogger) interest in the Occupy Wall Street protests.

A co-worker gushed about it. Democracy in action. People power etc. etc. Stckin’ it to the Man.

On a hunch, I asked him who’s funding it (because spontaneous people power, or more accurately spontaneous Leftist people power, doesn’t ever just pop up out of nowhere).

The people are funding it.

Yeah right. My first impression was that this smacked of a creepy old rich white guy with eyes that would make an unmasked Darth Vader feel lucky.

Yep. George Soros. And after some cursory stumbling round the intertubes, it turns out that it is indeed him.

So much for the will of the people.

That’s the funding, and the idea come from, surprise surprise, a Canadian far-Leftist, hardcore environmentalist, vehemently anti-capitalist group called Adbusters.

Yep. That’s a Wiki link thus further proving that even the most basic of searches proves this largely directionless mob is about as spontaneous as a death from cancer.

The overall message, if any, one can glean from this blended mud soup of various Leftist cliches is, “We don’t have much money or power, you do, we want it now.”

It smacks of a generation that developed (is that the right word?) in a world of instant gratification, entitlement, molly-coddling, being told they’re special without ever receiving the slightest notion that the world owes them NOTHING and that in the real world, real reward takes hard work and patience.

It’s a generation that thinks hitting the “like” button on Facebook means real power, Utopia will arrive, pandas will stop dying and kittens will stop crying.

To liken themselves to the American Revolution and the Founding Fathers shows, as Ann Coulter clearly demonstrates, just what kind of a dreamworld this generation – most of my generation – is living in.

It’s so stupid, it hurts.

    OK, i lasted 50 seconds, a couple of points;

    1. WTF is that bimbo doing with a sign that says “Honk if you have a student loan”, that isn’t a protest that is a friggin statement.

    That’s like saying honk if you like hooters, it’s utterly meaningless.

    As for the buttpipe with the glasses, is this dude even old enough to shave?

    These morons redefine Uber Dumb.

      Actually the hooters thing makes perfect sense. o_O

    Said bimbo was good value in the closing; “We’re the over educated and the under employed”. Aha. So, how did they end up so stupid? sheesh. Hilarious really.

      How did they become so stupid? Actually there are a few reasons. One, they were indoctrinted in most of the educational institutions starting with some preschools. Two, indoctrinated by the popular culture. Three, critical thinking was never learned.

  1. Hi,
    I also couldn’t watch the video, I only lasted about 1 minute and that was too long. 🙂
    Why is it that most of the left want other people to pay for their life styles, I am getting sick of it.

  2. Best line?

    “There are certain things called civil liberties which are limitations on democracy.”

    Rightio, then.

      Boy, wouldn’t the Founding Fathers be surprised.

      Wouldn’t it be great to see a large group of foreign born patriots take these nannybrats on.

  3. Guys guys guys, watch the video. The interviewer is a unicorn slayer.

    OK. I watched it. He’s taking the piss out of them, and they haven’t got a clue. Especially Mr Philosopher in the heavy frame glasses. He was funny in his stupidity.

    My suspicions about George Soros’s participation are confirmed. If people connect the dots the pattern becomes evident. The riots started in Greece, then spread. George is trying to collapse our banks and economy, the way he collapsed banks in Europe.

    Soros isn’t the only player. The Democrats instituted regulations on the banks that led to these fees. But now they are playing offence knowing that most of the protestors are clueless to their involvement.

    The nannybrats don’t understand banks, nor do they understand that the are tools. Wonder how many have debit cards?

    As to the cats not being fed, why aren’t these people out getting jobs to feed the cats, or helping their brothers and sisters feed their animals. I’d feed my animals before myself. Guess, the protestor tip jar is a bit low.

    This mob of brainless yobbos don’t seem to realise, that when it’s “Game Over”, you don’t get the option to play again. Reality isn’t just what you see on your iPod screen, ferals.
    And they want to take the levers of power from the Boomers?
    I wouldn’t put them in charge of a date roll even if I had two.
    Literally, over my dead body, mate.

      Do these fools who protest agaist ‘big business’ realise wearing their Nike runners and using their iPhone what the builders of these buisnesses did.

      At one stage Nike was a pissant shoe company until it signed a young basketball player called Michael Jordan & their share price in the following years went apeshit.

      That Apple was days away from being broke when Steve Jobs came back to the company and turned it around.

      They have no idea what people with a dream or ambition have done. asshats
