It was hard for many Occupy Wall Street participants to justify our insistence on staying in one specific location — Zuccotti Park. In truth, we weren’t stopping Wall Street from expanding their destruction, we weren’t shutting down the NY Stock Exchange, we weren’t cutting off the oxygen to Bank of America boardrooms, we weren’t delivering CEOs of Goldman Sachs to prison. We were just causing a scene, and oh, what a scene we’ve caused!
The scene has now exploded beyond the park and on to a place where physically occupying a space has a direct role in stopping the thieves — occupying foreclosed homes. What was perceived by some to be a public nuisance has now inspired a direct public service; a private sector nightmare.
It’ll be pretty bad PR when you see cops bashing in the faces of Occupiers as they dive in front of a homeowner about to be cracked open with a night stick. Get ready to see shots of of senior citizens crawling out of their McMansions, vomiting up tear gas. Get ready to google “boy pepper sprayed and beaten for not leaving mobile home fast enough.”
Get ready to see FOX News addicts who once complained about the homeless occupying Zuccotti Park, now begging those same Occupiers to save them from the being thrown out into the streets.
Get ready to see some serious Tea Party and Occupier bonding, when sane Tea Partiers see that the heart of their fury – corrupt government gutting the American public for private gain – is one in the same.
Here’s a preview of what it might look like when Occupiers come to defend your home… hope it doesn’t end this way — cop on cop eviction.
