This OWS experiment is fascinating. It’s like being in a laboratory and watching Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies unfold before our very eyes. Just for those of you keeping score at home, here are some of the very latest dispatches from the OWS frontier. Remember, this is what leftism looks like.

People, these stories keep coming out at a rapid clip, so it’s really hard to keep up. But never fear. One of our favorite blogs has neatly summarized the whole thing in song, and is running a music video challenge — check it out!]]>
Here’s the deal. Fester has written you a little ditty about the Occupy Wall Street goons, and has recorded it. It’s called “We Gonna Occupy.” (Guess what it’s about. No really. Guess dammit!)
The thing is, we have no video. Well, okay, we have a video, but it does nothing but flash the lyrics:
We want something funny. Something scary. Something funny and scary. And that’s where you — the most clever readers on the Worldwide Web — come in.
First, watch the video. You’ve probably done that already, so you already know that Fester ain’t no Sinatra, and he ain’t no Edward Van Halen. But he’s a damn sight better than these commie wastes of skin.
Second, download the mp3 version of the song here. (Windows users, do the right-click “Save link as” thing. Mac users, do whatever it is you people do.)
Third, use the song to make a music video. When you’re done, upload it to YouTube and send us a link at tips@TheMorningSpew.com. We’ll review it and, if it meets our ground rules below, we’ll post it here and ensure your immortality.
The first three people to get their videos posted will win a coveted t-shirt from The Morning Spew. (Look, if we had the money, we’d buy you a new Ferrari. But we’re not George Soros, people.) That said, we’ll continue to post videos as long as people want to send them in. Later submissions might not get a t-shirt, but if we post your video, you will receive immortality, high praise, and our undying gratitude.
A few ground rules:
Other than that, you have total creative control. Now go forth and make music videos! Fester sez enjoy!
The other day, we featured Urban Infidel’s excellent work covering the “Occupy” protest at Manhattan’s Zucotti Square. (See our post: Repeat After Me: You Can Make Sweet, Sweet Love to Animals.) The whole thing had Fester wondering what kind of a man would say such bizarre things. Well, the New York Observer reports that it was Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek (H/T Urban Infidel):
The Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek turned up at Zuccotti Park to address the Occupy Wall Street demonstration on Sunday, offering up a seminar on Radicalism 101 for an appreciative crowd.
(Read it all here.) So who is this bearded bard of the Bohemian brotherhood? In Fester’s opinion, he’s a babbling pseudo-intellectual anarchist who is so thoroughly “academic” in his thinking that he’s finally become unmoored to reality. But don’t take Fester’s word for it — let’s read a few choice quotations from Žižek’s January 2009 article in The New Republic (all emphasis in original):
- “I claim that jihadis are really motivated neither by religion nor by a Leftist sense of justice, but by resentment … .”
- ” [T]he ‘antagonism’ between liberal tolerance and ethnic or religious fundamentalism is inherent to the universe of global capitalism: in their very opposition, they are the two faces of the same system. ”
- “In this precise sense of violence, Gandhi was more violent than Hitler: Gandhi’s movement effectively endeavored to interrupt the basic functioning of the British colonial state.”
- [Given the context, we're not entirely sure what he meant by this little gem, but we reproduce it anyway. Be your own judge.] ”Mr. Kirsch’s reasoning culminates towards the end of his text, where he ‘demonstrates’ that I advocate the annihilation of Jews (with some minor exceptions, true).”
Then there’s this lovely quote from an interview he gave in 2002:
BS: You’ve also left some of your readers scratching their heads over the positive things you’ve been writing about Christianity lately. What is it in Christianity you find worthy?
Zizek: I’m tempted to say, “The Leninist part.” I am a fighting atheist. My leanings are almost Maoist ones. Churches should be turned into grain silos or palaces of culture. ”
And of course, there’s his utterly insipid statement that so many things are possible these days that you can have sex with animals. So flaky are Žižek’s thought processes that other academics have described his rhetoric as “a stream of nonconsecutive units arranged in arbitrary sequences that solicit a sporadic and discontinuous attention” and “a dizzying array of wildly entertaining and often quite maddening rhetorical strategies … deployed in order to beguile, browbeat, dumbfound, dazzle, confuse, mislead, overwhelm, and generally subdue the reader into acceptance.” Fester agrees!
Are we really supposed to take these folks seriously?]]>
Fester has previously documented the Democrats’ growing disdain for the American public. To recap: we’ve heard unions call for “taking out” the SOBs in the Tea Party; President Øbama fancying himself a middle-class warrior and calling for what sounded a lot like a race war; Van Jones threatening widespread revolt; and Roseanne Barr saying bankers should be sent to reeducation camps and possibly beheaded. Along the way, we’ve experienced the offensive hippie offensive known as Occupy Whatever. These events range from ridiculous to disturbing. But the most serious development of all has been the emerging Democrat theme that voters are standing in the way of real progress, y’all. And today we learn that the Dems’ theme continues to develop.
As we’ve noted before, Obama’s former OMB Director Peter Orszag recently wrote a column in The New Republic proposing that we “counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.” Then, a couple of weeks later, North Carolina’s Democrat Governor Deb Perdue proposed suspending Congressional elections for two years – presumably so that Congress could enact more cramdown legislation without having to worry about We the People.
And now, as reported in The Hill, we have Democrat Steny Hoyer lamenting that the voters have made very, very naughty decisions and are now receiving their well-deserved spanking:
“The American people have every right to be angry [and] disappointed by the performance of the Congress,” Hoyer told reporters in the Capitol. “Of course, the American people have also elected people with hard stances, so that to some degree the American people are realizing the results of their votes.
“If elections have consequences — which I think they do — some of those consequences are getting what you vote for,” Hoyer added. “In this case, many people voted for people who thought compromise was not something that they ought to participate in.”
Translation: ”Stupid voters! Next time vote for more liberals so that we don’t have to deal with such … such principle!” Read the whole story here.
So by their own admission, Democrats despise voters — well, except the dead ones. We’ll hear more of this elitist drivel over the next 13 months. Let’s all give Steny his wish and end the gridlock by ejecting any remaining leftist bilge from the halls of Congress.
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.
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:
Class warfare? Suspending elections? Violence? Reeducation camps? Where have we heard this kind of rhetoric before? Hint: We’ve never heard this from the Tea Party. One more hint: We’ve always heard this from the communists.
If you find yourself backing this cabal — which stretches from the hippies of New York all the way to the White House — you need to take a very good look at yourself, because you’re a freaking communist. A great many Americans died to prevent the very thing these Democrats are advocating: i.e., blaming a small segment of society for their woes, taking their wealth by force, and now, literally killing those whom they illogically blame for pretty much everything. It’s absolutely okay to question their patriotism. Despite what they say, they’re not the “99%.” They’re not the “80%.” They’re not even the 10%. They’re the 1% — the filthy, lazy, violent, godless anti-intellectual losers who have no idea what it means to be an American and honestly think “liberty” is just a word.
Fester will leave you with these oft-quoted words from the late, great Robert Heinlein, describing the “rich” people whom communists so despise:
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as “bad luck.”
Oh, one more thing. If you’re really thinking that violence is the way to go, remember that other “revolutions” have never had to deal with the Second Amendment. Something to consider.
