Guy Poops On US Flag at Occupy Wall Street
It appears I have been had. The pic below is from 2007 at an anti-war “peace” rally in Seattle, not New York. I will always try to do due diligence on my sources. I was moved by this picture so much [ that means I found it revolting ] that I didn’t question its veracity. C’est la vie.
Somehow i think they lost sight of what they were there for? they went from libertarian views, releasing the government from corporate hold to …. MANIA …
Now take a step back and realize that the police have been beating them senseless, pepper spraying them, arresting them, news lying about them. It is a miserable time.
It doesn’t necessarily mean you turn into some weird freak, but it does explain how awful a time they are having there.
In principle, they are trying to get a Libertarian message across, they are just unaccustomed to going about it.
I’m shocked anyone protests at all in America. Hell went gas went from 99c to $3 no one even batted an eyelash. That alone sent millions from middle class crashing into poverty. And, now we protest?
We should have been protesting about 8 years ago. It’s not too late, we just need to get accustomed to protesting.
With that said, we need to fire nearly all cops that are hired today, and require they hire actual professional police that can tell the difference between a mugger and a citizen exercising their right to protest a business / government to achieve some goal in mind.
At no point does having a badge give you any authority to put your hands on someone protesting. That was the entire point of our constitution, because the “police” of their day, simply came into your house, grabbed you by the scruff of your neck and threw you in jail for any damn reason they or the monarch felt like. And, more likely it was always to somehow get what little money you had, out of you.
Of course pooping on a flag while exercising an American freedom, seems kind of ironic and idiotic, but one person does not a protest make. I guarantee all those standing around are mewling sheep and have no clue what is going on.
Normal people do not sit around thinking about lofty ideas of freedom and constitutional rights and the monarchy. Normal people do not pontificate about fascist state of our police force. Normal people do not think, period. Someone says to a normal person “a WHOLE LOT of people are going to new york to protest the bankers for ruining the economy, come with EVERYONE” and normal people will THEN go. Normal people do not have political blogs that are completely devoid of a political mainstream agenda i.e. democrat / republican, that can clearly see that they are keeping out the real voice of Americans.
Normal people might be at a protest for bringing attention to the total capture of state and local government for financial gain, and not even know what capture means. Normal people might be at a protest about fiscal malfeasance, and see a guy poop on an American flag, and not understand what fiscal malfeasance is, nor why the guy is pooping on the flag, nor why the guy thinks he’s doing something even remotely related to fiscal malfeasance.
That is just how dumb Americans are now. Blame your damn schools. This is what it has come to.
