As always, you can click on the cartoon for a larger, easier-to-read size
On Wednesday, the mainstream media was filled with stories about the "tens of thousands" of Occupy Wall Street protesters who were expected to clog the streets of New York, shut down the stock market, and basically give the Evil Rich the big spanking they so richly deserve.
And it's a good thing those stories were written, published, and telecast on Wednesday...because if the media had actually waited for the "Day of Action" to occur on Thursday, they would have had to report that it was a miserable, poorly attended, disorganized failure... just like everything else the Occupy idiots have attempted to date.
But as much as we'd like to criticize the half-witted protesters, we think the punishments they've self-administered pretty much fit their crimes: where they were once simply spoiled, bongo-whacking kids who didn't want to pay back their student loans, they are now spoiled, bongo-whacking kids who are infected with scabies, lice, tuberculosis, rickets, and STDs which don't even have names yet.
No, our real derision is reserved for the mainstream media who are the real "99%" behind this protest "movement" that was never a movement at all. The media which has whipped up false numbers, false stories, and false sympathies to promote their own political agenda (and that of pro-Occupy cheerleaders like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi) while failing to report on the mongrel horde's taste for rape, murder, drug use, public masturbation, destruction of property, and rampant anti-Semitism.
Simply put, the many reports predicting "tens of thousands" of protesters were never about covering an event...but hoping to create one. And that's a frightening thought.
Hopefully, now that many municipalities have undergone de-lousing and closed their various Obamavilles, the whole "Occupy" myth will evaporate for lack of camera-friendly images to serve as backdrops for the talking heads.
But it would be foolish for us to either forget or forgive those who have been promoting blatant anarchy and anti-Americanism. And more foolish still to think they won't try to up the ante dangerously before next election day.
