Debunking, uncovering, and just plain mocking the Occupier movement could be a full-time job, but some things just stand out:
The $700-per-night W Hotel Downtown last week hosted both Peter Dutro, one of a select few OWS members on the powerful finance committee, and Brad Spitzer, a California-based analyst who not only secretly took part in protests during a week-long business trip but offered shelter to protesters in his swanky platinum-card room.
“Tents are not for me,” he confessed…
Dutro, 35, one of only a handful of OWS leaders in charge of the movement’s $500,000 in donations, checked in on Wednesday, the night after police emptied Zuccotti Park…
“I knew everything was going to be a clusterf–k in the morning,” he told The Post, alluding to Occupy’s own disruption plans. “How would I get over the bridge when they were shutting it down?”
Oink oink, piggy piggy.
It really is getting more and more like Animal Farm all the time, isn’t it?
Animal Farm has been on my family reading list for a while, and the whole devolution of the Occupier movement has had me thinking that perhaps I should put our current family read (Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard) on hold to get in while it’s so clearly relevant.
I really thought that once all the kids hoping to get their college loans paid for with tax dollars went home, enough serious people would be left to form a valid political movement, sort of Left-leaning cousin to the Tea Party. But it looks like most of the serious people (well, besides the serious Marxists and anarchists) went home, too.
