Other than the Democrat Party and the “mainstream” media, Occupy Wall Street animals have managed to alienate pretty much everyone. Last Saturday night they even made enemies at a pro-OWS forum in the moonbat haven Seattle:
No sooner had the panel finished opening remarks … than a woman scampered up onto stage and yelled, “Mic check!” It was an orchestrated effort by several dozen activists to use the People’s Mic to interrupt a forum at Town Hall — a forum in favor of Occupy Wall Street, featuring three wonks and three activists from Occupy Seattle. Their stunt replaced what was supposed to be an informed discussion of the movement with an uninformative, shout-a-thon about process that consumed most of the evening. They booed opinions they disagreed with and drove supporters out of the building.
“I walked in supportive and left unsupportive,” said 69-year-old Mary Ann, who declined to provide her last name. “I’m turned off by the negative shouts, repetition, and all I can think about is a cult. And I believe in every one of their damn principles.”
Mary Ann can only imagine what those of us who loathe their coercive and parasitical “principles” think of these vermin.
Activists had planned to interrupt the panel because, some said, they opposed the power dynamic created by speakers on stage talking into microphones. Although Occupy Wall Street uses the belabored people’s mic — which involves one person speaking and the crowd repeating everything — to amplify the soft spoken and encourage free speech, last night it was used to silence the panel. The call and-response created an echoing cacophony. Despite pleas from several older audience members who couldn’t hear well to let the panelists proceed, the Occupy activists demanded a vote to overtake the forum. …
By a show of hands, Nick Licata — the moderator, who some activists later claimed was a proxy for the partisan political establishment — determined the activists had been outvoted. The event would proceed as a planned, right?
Wrong. This is what Occucommies’ conception of democracy looks like:
The activists refused to lose. They demanded another vote and even insisted that, before we could vote again, they would first explain how a General Assembly worked. So for 15 minutes, the activists read the rules and we repeated them back.
“Assembly time is precious,” the man yelled without a hint of irony. “Assembly time is precious!” we all yelled back, wasting precious time.
Then they insisted that everyone discuss the issue among their neighbors. If people opposed, they were drowned out by the people’s mic. So we talked about their proposal. One activist slept on the floor in front of the stage, spread eagle. The place reeked of BO.
Welcome to the revolution. No doubt this same scene played out in Russia many times circa 1917.
It’s almost a shame that the Occupy Wall Street mob has been getting dispersed. The more people get a close up look at left-wing radicals, the less they are going to want four more years of them infesting the White House.
