Every day brings more of this shit.
St Pauls’ Cathedral in London was shut down after the church’s charitable gesture turned into the inevitable disaster.
It seemed a gesture of Christian tolerance when a clergyman at St Paul’s Cathedral told police to allow anti-capitalist protesters camped outside to continue their demonstration.
But the alliance appeared to be faltering yesterday as St Paul’s closed for the first time since the Blitz, claiming it had no choice because of the dangers posed by the growing numbers on its doorstep.
With 250 people living in the London churchyard, the “unprecedented” decision, which will cost the church £23,000 a day, was announced by the dean, the Rt Rev Graeme Knowles. Although he supported the protesters’ right to be heard, he said, he now asked that they leave. The decision was met with criticism from both sides. One American tourist, who had planned to go to evensong, said: “I guess you reap what you sow. They should have nipped this in the bud.”
Protesters described the decision as a “shame” and voted to ignore the plea.
They voted to ignore the plea. How democratic of them to vote in favor of trespassing.
Some of the little ‘occupy’ assholes showed up at privately owned restaurant and threatened the business after one of them bought a beer from the dirty capitalist establishment.
The spokesman – holding a beer he just bought from the “union buster” he’s protesting – couldn’t embody the entitlement mentality of the entire “Occupy” movement any better if he tried. Smug. Brazen. Dumb.
First, he is claiming to stand up for the rights of union workers by violating the rights of the restaurant owner and the people who went there to enjoy their evening. Second, the “offense” didn’t occur at the restaurant. Third, annoying people is probably the worst way you can get your message across. It’s stupid any way you look at it. They top it off by threatening to come back until the owner does what they demand.
They must have gotten the idea for that particular tactic from the (former) Democratic Representative moonbat from Florida, Alan Grayson. He barged into a Republican meeting at a family restaurant and proceeded to vent his scripted complaints.
They’ll target Fox News, but not their boot-lickers at MSNBC:
And lookie here, some desperate suburban housewife decided to leave her family and join the “cause”:
A married mother of four from Florida ditched her family to become part of the raggedy mob in Zuccotti Park — keeping the park clean by day and keeping herself warm at night with the help of a young waiter from Brooklyn.
“I’m not planning on going home,” an unapologetic Stacey Hessler, 38, told The Post yesterday.
“I have no idea what the future holds, but I’m here indefinitely. Forever,” said Hessler, whose home in DeLand sits 911 miles from the tarp she’s been sleeping under.
Hessler — who ironically is married to a banker — arrived 12 days ago and planned to stay for a week, but changed her plans after cozying up to some like-minded radicals, including Rami Shamir, 30, a waiter at a French bistro in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
She swears she’s not romantically involved with her new friend.
The unemployed Long Island native compared her decision to abandon her family to Americans serving in the armed forces.
“Military people leave their families all the time, so why should I feel bad?” a defiant Hessler said. “I’m fighting for a better world.”
She said she had been following the movement on Facebook, and the more she learned, the more obsessed she became with joining the demonstrators.
At around 11 a.m. yesterday, Hessler moved from laundry duty to park cleanup — a four-hour detail from which she broke just once to give a troubled protester a hug at the “empathy table.” She also found time for a meditation session later in the day.
Hessler has spoken with her family — husband Curtiss, 42; son Peyton, 17; and daughters Kennedy 15, Sullivan, 13, and Veda, 7 — just three times since leaving them. “Friends are taking care of them,” she said.
When the “occupy” morons collapse under the weight of their own stupidity, I hope the brainless bitch has a nice big cardboard box handy.
It figures the anti-war leftwing fuckwads would try to equate their idiocy with the real sacrifice of military personnel. Every time I read or hear one of them trying to put themselves on the same level, Ms. Hand wants to turn into Ms. Fist.
Note to Hessler:
“Fighting for a better world”, my ass.
Brave Soldiers, people far better than you, are out on the frontlines making sure you can sleep well at night and not have to worry about Islamic nutbags who want you dead. I had the honor of serving with some of the finest Soldiers ever to wear the uniform. You couldn’t shine their boots. Military personnel endure hardships that would have you curled up in a fetal position, sobbing your little heart out.
Tell you what, sweetpea, when you’ve humped a ruck instead of Obama’s leg, you can talk. You and your new-found friends in the “occupy” group, are a boil on the ass of humanity.
I’m guessing her marriage wasn’t all that great to begin with, but when you abandon your kids, I lose all respect for you. Not that she had that much to respect.
More on Hessler: Apparently the neighbors are not surprised.
The Florida mom who ditched her banker husband and four kids to live in Zuccotti Park squalor is a hippie homemaker whose neighbors are horrified by her latest antics — but are hardly surprised that she flew the coop.
Stacey Hessler, 38 — a self-described “vegan freak” who’s into dreadlocks, roller derby and “unschooling” her kids — acts like a self-obsessed college sophomore who never grew up, said a neighbor in her hometown of DeLand, Fla.
“I’m not disgusted she took off [to protest] — because I’m not surprised,” seethed one next-door neighbor who asked that her name not be published.
‘The Man’ she went up there to fight against is the bank where her husband works.
“She believes everything should be free,” the neighbor added.
The middle-aged flower child’s trip to New York to sleep under the stars with the Occupy Wall Street protesters was chronicled in The Post yesterday.
One angry neighbor said yesterday it was hardly surprising that Hessler would leave her kids behind and go radical.
“She’s very bizarre,” the neighbor insisted.
On her Facebook page, Hessler wrote about being a surrogate mom. She also boasted of a panoply of California-style beliefs.
She called herself a “radical unschooling mom of four, midwives assistant, roller-derby queen, rock-star musician, activist, dreadlock princess, African-bee keeper, organic vegan freak and a surrogate for the second time.”
Hessler has gotten even more hippie since she arrived in New York. In Zuccotti Park, she’s been sharing a tarp with a Brooklyn waiter and plans to stay “indefinitely.”
The waiter, Rami Shamir, vehemently declined to comment at his job last night.
That explains it. She’s always been a freaky little space cadet. She’s from planet batshit crazy.
Chicago Mayor Rahm (Godfather) Emanuel is getting flak from his communist constituents:
CHICAGO (WLS) – An online petition is asking Mayor Rahm Emanuel to let Occupy Chicago protesters stay in Grant Park without being arrested. Police arrested 175 protesters early Sunday after hundreds refused to take down tents and leave Grant Park when it closed at 11 p.m. the night before. Organizers didn’t seek a permit to be in the park after hours, saying they stayed because they need a home base for the growing movement. It also says, “Don’t let this end like 1968,” an apparent reference to the Democratic National Convention of that year when Chicago police violently clashed with about 10,000 protesters.
Is that a threat? I can hardly wait until Emanuel pulls the same shit he did when he was Richard Daley’s fundraiser and subsequently, Obama’s water boy. Emanuel’s reputation as a prick is well established. He’s a vulgar, rabid attack dog, going after critics mafia-style. He doesn’t like people who don’t sugar-coat results; he sent a dead fish to a pollster who dared to disagree with him.
Ok tough guy, let’s see how you handle thousands of communist/anarchist punks when they decide to riot like it’s 1968.
Your laugh for the day: The creator of “Occupy Charlotte” was unceremoniously dumped by the apostates in his own organization for claiming “leadership”:
“Occupy Charlotte” protesters have carried out an official coup within the group.
Thomas Shope, 47, credited with helping to organize “Occupy Charlotte,” was exiled from the group for claiming leadership.
“Some of your actions have compromised the reputation, motivation and unity of the protesters of the ‘Occupy Charlotte’ movement,” it starts.
……Shope shut down the Twitter profile and website’s domain for “Occupy Charlotte.” The movement now has several Twitter accounts and Facebook pages that broadcast muddled and conflicting messages.
“They’re a rogue group of kids,” Shope told CBS Charlotte. “They did anything a child can come up with to get people from the group on their side.”
“Occupy” protesters acting like a bunch of rag-tag, immature kids. I’m shocked.
Oh, and this just in: Michael Bloomberg is threatening to crack down on the protesters. Really. Maybe the filth, stench, disease, and violence, has finally reached breaking point. Maybe Bloomberg looked under his desk and found his balls. We’ll see.
