Happy Halloween from OccupyOakland
November 1, 2011
No, these are not actual OccupyOakland Halloween pictures, they are pictures of every day life at the Marxist Occupation in Oakland.
I wonder what they WILL do for Halloween…..
What is the real TRICK or TREAT surprise they have in mind for America?
I don’t trust putting the future of our country into the hands of these occupiers.
That is what I call SCARY!
Many in the crowd, such as QPOC (Queer People of Color, for all you ignorant
facsists) called for the death of capitalism in a more generic sense.
Some of the speakers addressing the rally wanted to go “the full Lenin.”
This guy was sitting outside his tent, riffling through and counting huge wads of greenbacks. I can’t say for sure that he was a drug dealer, but I found it mighty suspicious that he would have such a massive amount of cash amidst such squalor.
The City of Oakland issued an eviction notice the day before the rally, citing sanitation issues, garbage, rats and other hygiene problems at the encampment. The protesters announced that they simply wouldn’t budge, and the city temporarily caved in, so for now the standoff continues, though the eviction notices are still taped up around the plaza. But as far as I could tell — yes, the city has a very good point. The place was pretty disgusting.
Paradise for rats.
Even more disturbingly, all over the camp were signs that said “Not a toilet,” because some occupiers basically relieve themselves wherever and whenever they feel the urge. Disgusted campers started putting up signs so that their particular tents wouldn’t be on the receiving end of any effluvia.
Everywhere I went, I encountered people taking drugs — mostly marijuana. Many of them were understandably camera-shy. But this guy stood right on the main walkway and puffed away on a drug pipe.
To show how egalitarian and open-minded the whole Occupy Oakland movement is, they have workshops both in Marxism 101 and in anarchism. Being mutually exclusive philosophies doesn’t matter — as long as they’re both devoted to destroying capitalism, we can work out the details later in a brutal post-revolution civil war. Sound familiar?
