US Military 1 — Occupy Movement 0

My latest report, up at Pajamas Media:

US Military 1 — Occupy Movement 0.

And here’s an excerpt, to whet your appetite:

The “Occupy” movement claims to represent 99% of the people (hence their motto, “We Are the 99%”).

The US military stands for everything the Occupiers oppose; it is after all the force which imposes the evils of capitalism on the nation and the world.

Wouldn’t it be interesting if, as an experiment, we arranged to have the Occupy movement and the US military each hold events in the same city on the same day — and then see which one drew more visitors? If the Occupiers truly represented the 99%, and if the military really were the musclemen for the corporations, then it’d be no contest — right? And what if we even held the competition in the nation’s most left-leaning city, just to give the Occupiers home field advantage?

Well, we don’t have to imagine any of this, because it happened yesterday, in San Francisco. The “Occupy SF” protest group held yet another shindig in front of the Federal Reserve Bank on Market Street. And as luck would have it, San Francisco was at the same time hosting “Fleet Week,” an annual celebration of all things military and patriotic, including performances by the Blue Angels, the US Navy’s aerobatic team. Since the “Occupy SF” group was having a protest at the exact same moment as the Blue Angels show, this would be a perfect test case: Which is more popular?

It’s 2pm on Saturday, October 8, 2011: Let the showdown begin!

We start our duel at the Occupy SF encampment on Market Street, where the “greeter” stood stark naked with a sign welcoming visitors to the occupation.

Let we ever forget how significant and popular they are, a row of Occupiers held up signs reminding everybody that they represent the views of 99% of Americans.

Important questions were asked — such as “My Mom has lupus…Why can’t she have an American dream?” Indeed. Powerful stuff.

Love and bloodshed,
Love and bloodshed,
Go together
until corporate greed’s dead.
This I tell you brother,
You can’t have one without the other.

Moms of America: If your daughter got sick, would you prefer that she visit a licensed physician, or instead curl up in agony with a shaved head and a sleeping kitten on a urine-soaked sidewalk in the “Occupy SF Infirmary”?

    Got to love the picture where they are asking people not to smoke, because it stinks…………….ha ha! I am guessing tobacco cigarettes, imagine if you are smoking weed they wouldn’t care. My guess is you can smell that block before you can see it. The odor from tobacco smoke probably barely cuts through the smell of the BO of the naked guy.

    It’s deliciously hilarious, watching the media first, and now the unions and Liberal Dems attempt to portray these people as:

    1. Middle class

    2. Legitimate protesters: They simply have no real objectives and fight for the status quo of big government liberalism, while the Tea Party fights for getting back to Constitutional foundations, less taxes and government, and more liberty.

    Sadly, but appropriately, the teaparty will save America and these people will think they had something to do with it. Sometimes you have to let the kids think they’ve won to have peace in the car.
