Of Michelle Goldberg Part 3, OWS – And Why You “Can” Evict An Idea
Police can’t be “harsh” enough when it comes to arresting “peaceful” abortion protesters outside an abortion clinic, but Michelle Goldberg is having another liberal conniption fit when it comes to Occupy Wall Street protesters and the recent raid law enforcement made on their not so peaceful little stage-in which had cost the city taxpayers many thousands of dollars up until the time of the arrests, and now will incur many thousands more in the aftermath. Michelle seems to think the mass arrest of these protesters will “reinvigorate” them.
The New York Police Department, with its wildly overwrought response to civil disobedience, may have reinvigorated the movement it meant to crush.
“Wildly overwrought”? “Civil disobedience”?
How many rapes, murders, suicides and drug overdoses occurred during all the many Tea Party rallies? How many Tea Party protesters set up tents and camped out all night on public land, and in the morning begged for food from local eateries? How many Tea Party protesters urinated and defecated on police cars or on other public landscapes? How much of a “nuisance” were the Tea Party protesters compared to the scum and filth within the OWS movement? How many taxpayer dollars did the Tea Party rallies siphon away from local governments, compared to the OWS lowlifes and vagrants? The same type of “lowlifes” and “vagrants” Michelle says were “migrating to Zuccotti Park” and intermingling with the OWS lowlifes and vagrants.
The only difference between these “lowlifes” and “vagrants” and the OWS lowlifes and vagrants? The OWS lowlifes and vagrants can go back to all the comforts of their middle and upper class homes, back to mommy and daddy who will take care of them. Because, obviously, if the OWS lowlifes and vagrants could not take care of themselves at Zuccotti Park, or anywhere else they trashed and left for someone else to clean up, how can they possibly know how to take care of themselves when they return home, where there is undoubtedly someone there to wash their clothes, clean their dirty dishes, throw out their garbage and flush their toilets?
There reportedly were several rapes and sexual assaults.
Has anyone asked Michelle why she has not bothered to investigate these “several rapes and sexual assaults”? Has anyone asked Michelle why she seems to be unresponsive when it comes to these “several rapes and assaults”? Has anyone asked Michelle why she seems to feel it is not worth the time of day to worry about these “several rapes and assaults”? These “several rapes and assaults” were committed against women, after-all. And in Michelle’s opening line, she writes, literally mortified:
Before a New York City cop pepper-sprayed peaceful female demonstrators at Occupy Wall Street in September, few were paying attention to the movement.
So “peaceful female demonstrators” were “reportedly” pepper-sprayed and Michelle convulses into another liberal conniption fit. But when “several rapes and assaults” occur against women, presumably “females”, and somewhat more offensive than being pepper-sprayed – reportedly - Michelle simply rolls her eyes in the other direction and yawns.
Those who’ve been living in the park will surely mourn the end of the grubby utopia that they built, astonishingly, amid the financial district’s uninviting concrete brutalism. But it couldn’t have lasted, and it’s better for it to end on a note of righteousness than to become increasingly squalid and then peter out.
A “grubby utopia” which local taxpayers will have pay to clean up and restore back to order. Therein lies the real definition of “utopia” for a liberal like Michelle Goldberg – a place where one might find free food, free lodging, free comforts, free everything, all catered and paid for by someone else.
But Michelle Goldberg is not the only person yawning and rolling their eyes. So too is liberal agitator Sally Kohn who, according to the Huffington Post “makes the world safe for radical ideas”. She writes in her piece “You can’t Evict An Idea“:
In the middle of the night, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and hundreds of police in full riot gear crept up on peacefully sleeping American citizens early Tuesday morning and evicted them from Occupy Wall Street, reportedly using pepper spray and aggressive force.
Here is another liberal throwing another liberal conniption fit and using that “peaceful” and “reportedly” crap. For all we might know, Michelle Goldberg and Sally Kohn are one in the same person, or perhaps share a desk.
Kohn compares the OWS lowlifes and vagrants to the Boston Tea Party.
Think what you will about the protests. Maybe they weren’t your cup of tea. But do know that our forefathers who destroyed private property by dumping crates of tea into the Boston Harbor were not initially praised as heroes but attacked as criminals. But we look back with deep gratitude that they stood up to the fundamental inequity and injustice of the British monarchy and its stranglehold over the colonies. Without their bold action, we would not be a nation.
The protesters are scum and filth fighting against capitalism and for socialism. And socialism, compared to capitalism is indeed a weak “cup of tea”. Our forefathers who “destroyed private property by dumping crates of tea into the Boston Harbor” were in and out as quickly as they could. They didn’t camp outside for weeks on end trashing Boston Harbor, urinating and defecating where they pleased, begging the locals for food, leaving a filthy mess in their wake. Our forefathers were fighting against the tyranny of the monarchy. The OWS rabble is fighting for the tyranny of a new monarchy under the guise, the umbrella, of socialism. The “stranglehold” our forefathers fought against and “stood up to” was the “inequity and injustice” that resulted from an arrogant monarchy which saw the colonies as their own property to do with what they pleased and to tax as they pleased. How is that different from the Obama Administration, which has been treating Americans in the exact same manner the British Monarchy of old treated our forefathers, and for which they fought against? And who was it calling our forefathers “criminals”?
There is no such comparison between the actions of our forefathers and the actions of the OWS filth. There is no “bold action” by them. The OWS protesters, puppets for Soros as they are, have acted with absolute contempt, indignity and disrespect. Our nation was founded by forefathers who fought against the very ideas and ideals the OWS protesters/puppets are fighting for. The British Monarchy supported “wealth distribution” just as liberal do. And just as the British Monarchy supported redistributing that wealth back to themselves, liberals support redistributing wealth back to our federal government, and the people in charge of this over bloated, ever expanding monstrosity – which is liberals themselves.
Our forefathers evicted that idea over two centuries ago when they wrote and passed the Bill of Rights, the bases for our Constitution. And that never sat well with some people, even back then. And while the idea of socialism was evicted from the framework of our Constitution, it is true the idea of socialism was never really evicted from the framework of human minds which has ever sought to reinstate it back into the American landscape and into our Constitution. They succeeded in 1913 with passage of the 16th amendment, making the income tax, once unconstitutional, now constitutional.
Kohn sums up the arrests by writing:
Time will tell if the end of occupy camps is upon us, but without a doubt, the larger movement for opportunity in America is just beginning. You can evict hundreds of protesters, but you cannot evict an idea whose time has come.
This “idea that has come” is the very idea our forefathers “boldly” fought against. In other words, this “idea” is nothing new. It’s merely been reconstituted, repackaged and resold. And with our “bold action” we, conservatives, will “remain a nation” despite the cowardice of liberals and OWS protesters.
Goldberg writes nearly the same ending as Kohn:
The quixotic little village in Zuccotti Park may be gone. The movement isn’t.
Great. Invoke Don Quixote, who was an impractical dreamer too. And for all the impractical dreaming of Don Quixote, after he returned home from his “adventures”, much as with the OWS protesters, he suffered from his “humiliations” and “defeats”. Of course what happened to Quixote at the end probably will not happen to the OWS protesters themselves after they return home to their posh settings. But – what happened to Quixote at the end, will indeed happen to their idea.
So, Michelle was inadvertently right comparing Don Quixote to the OWS protesters. There indeed is much similarity between Quixote, liberalism and the “idea” the OWS movement is pushing. All of which is, and remains, “impractical”.
How “reinvigorated” was Don Quixote when he returned home?
