It sure looks like it because this just seems too coincidental. The Guy Fawkes look-a-like cups and the comments below from their CEO seem to indicate support for the OWS thugs.
No more Starbucks for me. Dang! I just fell in love with their Gingerbread Latte, too!
Is it pure coincidence that this year’s Starbucks holiday cup features a Nutcracker bearing an uncanny resemblance to the iconic Guy Fawkes mask? Or is this is some radical graphic designer’s way of sticking it to the Man. Of course, it could also be Starbucks’ way of commodifying some of that Occupy Wall Street magic. Because what could be more punk than drinking coffee from a chain restaurant in a disposable cup referencing a 17th century religious nut!
Supporting the Guy Fawkes cup theory is a recent statement made by none other than Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. “We’ve lost something,” Schultz said. “We’ve either lost our conscience, or lost our soul… People want human connection… I thought there would be social unrest in America. I mean violence.” Sounds like somebody’s been getting into V for Vendetta.

This story comes from Jim Hoft via The Gateway Pundit:
Confirmed: Scott Olsen’s Injuries Were Not Caused By Sheriff’s Deputies – The #Occupy Goons Lied
Confirmed: Leftist hero, Jew-basher and founder of “I Hate the Marines.com” website Scott Olsen was not injured at the Oakland riots by local deputies. Olsen was hit by a projectile thrown by the protesters.
The Occupy Oakland protesters already admitted that they started throwing rocks and bottles at police before the police took action.
Today the the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department announced that it was not their deputies who injured Scott Olsen. Spokeswoman Eileen Hirst said 35 of the 37 Sheriff’s Department personnel on site for the raid were not carrying projectiles, and the two who were equipped with them did not fire.

It doesn’t get any more pathetic than this, folks. Watch as this wart tries to justify the protesters’ use of violence against the police.
Another OWS story that further illustrates the contempt these protesters have shown and continue to harbor regarding other peoples rights. When will elected city officials get some balls, find their sanity, and stop this lunacy from continuing any longer at taxpayer expense?
Authorities arrested a convicted sex offender at an Occupy Dallas rally for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old runaway in his tent, MyFoxDFW.com reported.
Richard Wayne Armstrong, 24, who failed to register as a sex offender, had sex with the teen at the encampment, authorities said. She reportedly told investigators she was 19 years old.

Save the Protesters – Changing Lives Since Last Thursday
Save the Protesters is a new progressive charity begun for the express purpose of providing financial, emotional and educational support to Occupy Wall Street Protesters as they endeavor to fundamentally change America and the world through coordinated occupations of city parks and plazas. For less than the price of a daily latte, you can provide a nurturing environment for Occupy protesters where ever they may be. An environment brimming with support, love and attention allows the protesters the freedom to continue their work on behalf of 99% of the global community.
When protests strike throughout the country and around the world, Save the Protesters is there, bringing support in the form of nourishing vegan meals, fresh cardboard boxes and tarps, much-needed STD and drug testing, and quality condoms and sanitary wipes.
So that protesters may continue their studies, our efforts also ensure that vital educational opportunities such as bongo and rhythmic dance lessons, consensus hand signals, including twinkle variations, point of process, wind it up and more, are available without cost or obligation to recipients.
And you can rest assured that Save the Protesters does not permit any religious or moralistic bias to influence our process. Won’t you please take a moment to read the heartfelt, personal stories of a few of the Occupy Protesters below and see if you are not touched by their strength and desire to destroy capitalism?
Upon receiving your pledge, a Save the Protesters introductory packet will be sent to you so that you may get to know “your” special protester. Each OWS protester you choose to support will communicate with you via text messages, emails, skype twinkles, and tweets, so that you may track his or her progress and personally witness the fruits of your financial support.
* We ask that you do not contact your sponsored protester personally as he or she may be unstable. Please remember that all correspondence be coordinated through Save the Protesters.
I wonder what is going to take to the city of New York to get control of this. Who are they protecting?
From The New York Post
Infuriated lower Manhattan residents went ballistic on Zuccotti Park protesters at a chaotic Community Board 1 meeting tonight while blasting politicians for allowing the siege to continue without any end in sight.
“They are defecating on our doorsteps,” fumed Katherine Hughes, a stay at home mom who has the misfortune of living one block from the chaos. “A lot of people are very frustrated. A lot of people are concerned about the safety of our kids.”
Fed up homeowners said that they’ve been subjected to insults and harassment as they trek to their jobs each morning. “The protesters taunt people who are on their way to work,” said James Fernandez, 51, whose apartment overlooks the park.
