The revolutionary chaos Occucommies promised for May Day fizzled yesterday, but they did make the most of Earth Day last week by seizing control of a farm and transforming it into a farm. Zombie reports:
Before the Occupation, the Gill Tract was an agricultural research farm where twenty-somethings getting their PhDs would work the fields to grow crops, as they researched biology or how to raise better, healthier plants. But now, after this incredible revolution by Occupy, the Gill Tract has been utterly transformed into a farm where twenty-somethings work the fields to grow crops. The only difference is that before, the farm served a scientific function to improve society, and was managed by experts and hard-working students doing meaningful research; but now, it’s run by a bunch of smug amateurs and dropouts who plant store-bought seedlings in the middle of what once was a controlled research environment. Meet the new farm — same as the old farm, except worse.
The purpose of occupying Gill Tract was to provide nourishment to the local community and of course to smash capitalism by violating the property rights that form the skeleton of every free society. Even in Berkeley, not everyone is happy about it.
The scientists themselves are for the most part royally pissed off at the Occupiers and some may have years of work ruined by the Occupiers’ juvenile prank.
Researchers need access to their land immediately or they will miss the spring planting season, in addition to the long-term projects that have already been destroyed, just so spoiled trustafarians can fantasize that they are laboring on one of Stalin’s collective farms. Apparently having the police drag these sociopathic vermin off to cages where they belong is not an option in Berkeley.
At least the pathetic attempt of these useless hippies to farm was good for some laughs, as Zombie documents. Here’s an Occucommie collective farmer hard at work as he fearlessly resists conventional notions of how to spell:
At least they came up with a scary scarecrow:
Wait a minute … check out the bug-out eyes, the trendoid dork glasses, the carp-like lips …
That’s no scarecrow, it’s Janeane Garofalo!
