It’s been said that if you grant the local anarchy group permission to hold a book fair in your town, they’ll cover your town in graffiti and attempt to cause, well, anarchy. You know what? That old adage must be true because that’s just what is happening in the small North Carolina towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
You might remember that back in November, many members of the Occupy Chapel Hill group (who were permitted to camp out without proper permits on the sidewalk in front of the Post Office because the Mayor believed in their cause) combined forces with the locally embraced Carrboro anarchist group to break into and “occupy” an empty, privately owned building. The Morning Spew posted about that story here. There were eight people arrested by the local SWAT team and all were charged with misdemeanors. The local, liberal moral outrage that ensued, over the use of what they claimed was excessive force by the local SWAT team as they stormed the sidewalk and building to arrest the anarchists was truly astonishing. It was the stuff of great comedy.
Anyway, fast forward to today: Carrboro We Have A Problem. The small town of Carrboro has been inundated with anarchist graffiti of all sorts, on both public and private property, costing the tax payers and private property owners thousands of dollars for removal and/or replacement of the vandalized property. According to the Carrboro Police Chief Carolyn Hutchinson, “Anarchists have claimed the area and are marking their territory.”
Common sense would indicate that this type of graffiti is the precursor to the violence that anarchist groups promise us. Even more reprehensible is when community leaders allow, embrace and defend groups that openly declare their intent to cause violence and mayhem as a free speech issue. This is irresponsible and morally repugnant. Here’s one of their posters that advertises a local anarchist book fair:

Graffiti on the rise, Carrboro police chief says
By Mark Schultz
CARRBORO – Police Chief Carolyn Hutchison is convinced the problem is getting worse. “It’s on buildings. It’s on signs. It’s on bike paths. It’s on private property. It’s on public property,” she says.
Nathan Milian rattles off the spots:
There’s the loading dock outside the DSI Comedy Theater, the transfer box behind Harris Teeter, the wall on the old Fleet Feet building facing the railroad tracks.
The property manager at Carr Mill Mall knows the spots because he spends a lot of money cleaning them up. Last year, he estimates, he spent $3,000 removing graffiti and glued-on fliers.
“It used to be once in a blue moon,” Milian said. “Now it’s almost weekly. … In many instances it requires repainting a whole wall.”
The Carrboro Police Department has received 14 graffiti complaints this year. Last year, from March through December, the town received 35 complaints.
The numbers don’t reflect all incidents because some property owners and tenants don’t report graffiti.
Police Chief Carolyn Hutchison is convinced the problem is getting worse.
“It’s on buildings. It’s on signs. It’s on bike paths. It’s on private property. It’s on public property,” she said.
Hutchison blames anarchists for much of the graffiti increase.
”Anarchists have claimed the area and are marking their territory,” she told town officials in an email this month.

Truly, OWSers are smug, hypocritical, phony slugs.
From The New York Post
They’re occupying his home.
Occupy Wall Street protesters announced with great fanfare last month that they moved a homeless family into a “foreclosed” Brooklyn home — even though they knew the house belonged to a struggling single father desperately trying to renegotiate his mortgage, The Post has learned.
“They’re trying to take a house and say the bank is robbing the people because the mortgage is too high — so contact the owner!” fumed Wise Ahadzi, 28, who owns the home at 702 Vermont St. in East New York.
Occupiers “reclaimed” the row house on Dec. 6 and ceremoniously put out the welcome mat for a homeless family.
But Bank of America, which has been in and out of foreclosure proceedings against Ahadzi since 2009, confirmed to The Post that he is still the rightful owner.
Meanwhile, the family that OWS claimed to be putting into the vacant house has not yet permanently moved in. And it turns out the family is not a random victim of the foreclosure crisis, but cast for the part, thanks to their connection to the OWS movement.
OWS last week said it has spent $9,500 breaking into the house and setting it up for the homeless Carrasquillo family. A photo of the smiling family covers a window, under the slogan, “A place to call home.”
The head of the family, Alfredo Carrasquillo, 28, is an organizer for VOCAL- NY, a group that works with OWS. His Facebook page shows him in a “99 Percent” T-shirt at an OWS protest in November.

The distinction between the 99% and the 1% assumes that there is a ruling class that is permanently in place, but this view is completely inaccurate. It misses the story of income mobility.

I found this poem on the same website that I found the Kim Kardashian portrait I posted earlier. It is a lefty, revolutionary, “activist” site which in my opinion seems to be a clearinghouse for disturbed thought (except for that Kardashian thing – that was right on the money).
Case in point – this poem called March of the Rats by H M Bascom (who also happens to be “Party Member #1930” – talk about rats). Obviously, too much “Willard.”

March of the Rats
by H M Bascom
Fat Rats with flesh between their yellow teeth
Spread the virus foul to extend their reach
Flea bitten rodents fear the light of day
A pox infected vermin stowaway
A fine line drawn straight between Hell and Earth
As Mother consumes young and afterbirth
The Father prances proud on arid sands
Directing a cappella all Rat bands
They stalked and trapped the prey their Owner sought
Identified their victims by their Thought
Groveling servant Rats brought home the prize
And looked up to their Master’s rheumy eyes
Line up you Rats and take your rightful place
Among the fools the wicked and debased
March to the tune banged out on flesh drumheads
Mark the cadence with bone sticks of the dead
The land laid waste by Rat boots on the ground
The Master Rat hides safe in his compound
Contentious seeds of bramble bushes sown
What They did in secret now all is known
March on proud Rats parade around the square
Until the day you’re caught by your own snare
The Master then will dine on your gray flesh
Replacement Rats are playing in the creche
A few weeks ago, The Morning Spew gave our readers a heads up about the OWSers’ plan to “occupy” stores and malls on Black Friday, usually the busiest shopping day of the year. You can read that here.
Apparently not getting enough attention from “occupying” public spaces, the OWSers want to bring their collective tantrum to us, by blocking our right to freely choose where we shop and engage in commerce. Even though they claim to be leaderless, this sounds like something which should fall under the RICO act. Somebody, somewhere is pulling the strings for these lawbreakers.
I wonder if these OWSers have any idea as to what they are getting themselves into. If they think that they can waltz right into a store on Black Friday and prevent people from shopping, they are incredibly naive.
Here’s a video that helps make my point. Imagine, if you will, a moron in a Guy Fawkes mask trying to prevent this crock pot from finding a good home. I’d pay cash money to see that.
Here’s the short list, straight from their website, for their Black Friday targets:
On Black Friday,
Occupy or boycott:
– Abercrombie & Fitch
– Amazon.com (yes, we
have to stay away from Amazon, too!)
– AT&T Wireless
– Dick’s Sporting Goods (I was surprised, too!)
– The Home Depot
– Neiman Marcus
– Verizon Wireless
Some demonstrators are planning to
occupy retailers on Black Friday to protest “the business that are in the
pockets of Wall Street.”
Organizers are encouraging
consumers to either occupy or boycott retailers that are publicly traded,
according to the Stop Black Friday website.
The goal of the movement is to
impact the profits of major corporations this holiday season.
“The idea is simple, hit the
corporations that corrupt and control American politics where it hurts, their
profits, ” states the Occupy
Black Friday Facebook page.
A few of the retailers the
protesters plan on targeting include Neiman Marcus, Amazon and Wal-Mart.
Their website states the following:
“Keep in mind that we are not occupying small businesses
or hardworking people—we must make a distinction between the businesses that are
in the pockets of Wall Street and the businesses that serve our local
We are NOT anti-capitalist. Just anti-crapitalist.Below is a shortlist for publicly traded large businesses
to Occupy or to boycott on Black Friday. Luckily, most of them don’t have good
presents anyway. If you want to see the top 100 retail businesses for 2010 to
boycott, click here.

OWSers think they own us and the world. The two Wall Street guys are great!

I have to wonder why any woman would subject her unborn baby to any occupy event, but then these people are liberals, so who knows. I thought we could help by suggesting a few baby names.
Here’s mine: “Free To a Good Home” – That was easy and it works for both boy and girl. Feel free to put your suggestions in the comments.

Meet New York’s newest hero.
Kevin Hiltunen, a former NYPD officer, yesterday grabbed an Occupy Wall Street demonstrator by the collar and dragged him out of a Queens school where he’d been heckling US Rep. Bob Turner at the congressman’s swearing-in ceremony.
“I guess you could say I sorted him out,” said Hiltunen, 48, his jacket and tie barely mussed after dragging the scruffy protester out on his rear end.
“All I was doing was trying to stop this historic occasion from being disrupt-ed. There is a time and place to exercise your First Amendment rights,’’ said Hiltunen, of Bergen Beach, Brooklyn, who was identified by people at the ceremony as an ex-Marine.

CHAPEL HILL — Police brandishing guns and assault rifles entered a Franklin Street car dealership and arrested a group of demonstrators who had taken over the building Saturday night.
A Chapel Hill Transit bus sat outside the long vacant University Chrysler building where the arrested protesters were taken.
Police officers stationed themselves around the building. One officer against a tree aimed an assault rifle at a dormer window where protesters had hung signs that said “Occupy” and “Everything.”
Carrboro Mayor Mark Chilton stood across the street in a crowd watching. He said he was up the street having tea when 15 to 20 officers arrived at the Chrysler building shouting for the protesters to get on the ground.
A crowd of more than 50 people watched and jeered from across Franklin Street.
“Shame! Shame! Shame!” they cried.
When someone noticed that the bus had an ad for Wells Fargo, the chant changed to “Who do they serve? Wells Fargo! Who do they protect? Wells Fargo!”
