Here’s a telling video from “Occupy Atlanta.” It’s so weird on every level. First, there’s the bizarre practice of having the crowd repeat everything the speaker says. It’s like a cult — or the Borg. As the video description says: ”People abandoned their individuality and liberty to be absorbed into a hypnotizing collective.” They weren’t even allowed to vote — instead, they had to express their “feelings” with “hand signs,” which the predictably unmanly leader was then free to interpret how he saw fit.
Second, there’s the fact that Congressman John Lewis came to speak to the group — and the “consensus” (as interpreted by the leader) was that he should just go away. Now just imagine what the media would have reported if this had been a Tea Party. Third, around the 8:30 mark, someone dissents. Immediately the leader shouts him down by repeatedly yelling “Mic check! Mic check!” as the well-programmed crowd again parrots his every word.
Watch the whole thing and prepare to be creeped out. There is no way in hell that these people represent any more than a fraction of a percent of the U.S. population, let alone 99%. LOL.
The American Left
How desperate are the Democrats right now? As they watch their popularity tank because they are so head-scratchingly incompetent, they seem to be fomenting some kind of communist revolution/freak show. What losers. When the going gets tough, they lose their cool and start preaching violence.
Fester thought it would be a good time to recap what’s been happening over the last month or so. It seems there’s a theme developing. To-wit:

This video has been making the rounds and is being offered as proof from the lefties that the NYPD pepper sprayed innocent bystanders during the ongoing Wall Street protests. The New York Daily News reports an investigation into the pepper spraying incident has been launched, and that anonymous protesters have made public the personal information of the police officer they claim sprayed the women. Here’s the video:
If you watch the video, you can devise your own theories as to what happened. Here’s what I think might have happened: I think the police officer in question saw the innocent bystander women as they were being corralled into the portable orange holding pen by the police officers and he came over to offer the poor victims assistance.
As he approached the shrieking, hysterical women, he noticed an overwhelmingly strong stench of B.O. Seeing that the odoriferous women’s beckoning arms were upright and outstretched, the officer logically thought they were presenting their unshaven, stench laden pits to him for a quick spray of official NYPD deodorant.
In the midst of all the chaos and obviously not thinking clearly, he mistakenly pulled out his pepper spray canister, thinking it was the coveted spray deodorant they so desired. What happened next is simply a tragic case of a good intention gone wrong. Although the officer sprayed the deodorant/pepper spray directly into the hirsute pits of the innocent women bystanders, the wind kicked up and all hell broke loose.
In a state of shock, the shaken officer re-holsters the spray canister and wanders back aimlessly into the crowd. Of course, I am not saying this is what happened, but only that this is what could have happened. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the video as much as we at The Morning Spew did. Please feel free to leave your theories as to what you think might have happened in the comments.
