DUmmies are angry that others think they're angry!
In yesterday's DUFU, we documented how full of hate and anger the DUmmies are toward anyone who has more money than they do, particularly toward those who work in the financial sector. Signs saying "JUMP! YOU F***ERS!" and images of guillotines were typical of the DUmmies' violent fantasies.
But even though the DUmmies and the OWSies are filled with such anger and hatred, don't you dare accuse them of posing a potential threat! No, the OWSies are non-violent, peaceful protesters, dontcha know. So any preparedness on the banks' part, trying to protect their employees' safety--this HAS to be a right-wing plot to paint the OWSies as violent types! Never mind that similar protests HAVE turned violent--think of the WTO riots in Seattle a few years back.
Today then we turn to this THREAD by DUmmie arcane1, "So, I work for a bank. Today they sent us this 'Protest Safety Handbook,'" and this THREAD by the OccuPied Piper himself, William Rivers Pitt, "Bank On It: They're Scared."
So let us see the DUmmies get all angry when others NOTICE that they're angry, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, happy to join PJ in a DUbble-DUFU night, is in the [brackets]:
So, I work for a bank.
[Bankster! Jump to your death, why don't ya! Watch your neck! We're coming with guillotines! AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!]
Today they sent us this "Protest Safety Handbook"
[A bank issuing some common-sense precautions to their employees, so they can navigate safely through a mob of angry protesters. Seems reasonable. What's the problem?]
"While this group has not yet resorted to violence the possibility exists that they can."
[Well, again, a reasonable warning, based on historical precedent. What's the problem?]
[There follow about twenty common-sense precautions, including . . .]
"When encountering a protest group or march every effort should be made to avoid the group."
[Horrible! How dare they say that! Facists!]
"Do not attempt to reason or argue with the protesters."
[Trying to reason with the OWSies would be like matching up Rosie O'Donnell and Chaz Bono and expecting a baby. It ain't gonna happen.]
I already felt like I needed another job, now I actively hate this f***ing place.
[Something tells me, DUmmie arcane1, that you may be looking for another job sooner than you think.]
"every effort should be made to avoid them or.......you'll probably end up joining them"
[DUmmie Scuba thinks this "Protest Safety Handbook" is just a ploy to keep the 1% from joining the 99%.]
Avoid the people that are going to save you and your children from a rush limbaugh, hell-on-earth, capitalist paradise! How stupid do these banksters thing their employees are???
[The OWSies are our benevolent saviors! Who would possibly want to avoid them? . . . Don't answer that.]
It just goes to show how scared the cowardly banksters are and how the cops and corporatocracy will make stuff up and create a crisis to keep the people serfs.
[Hundreds of angry protesters, dressed as zombies, calling people who work in financial institutions "money-hungry fascists" who are "dead inside," entreating the "f***ers" to jump out of windows--yeah, that's all made-up stuff.]
they are getting scared as they should be...underneath our peaceful movement is a boiling rage. However, to imply that people are out there with torches and pitchforks is seriously off base.
[SERIOUSLY off-base! The OWSies are out there with GUILLOTINES and pitchforks!]
That's basic safety information for any city dweller. And they're right that you shouldn't pick fights.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Maybe you missed what happened in Britain. This is actually more or less responsible corporate behavior. It is a cheap, minimal effort to protect nervous employees. There is no reason to put propagandistic spin on it.
[But there IS a reason to put a Kewpie Doll in your mailbox, DUmmie aquart! Congratulations!]
The Banks should issue surgical masks to all employees.
[The OWSies should issue Guy Fawkes masks to all protesters.]
Violence is not unlikely. History shows it's what pissed-off people do. History (e.g. the labor movement) also suggests that TPTB don't take anger seriously until that point.
"often encouraging the unemployed and homeless to join the movement." They weren't unemployed and homeless until you f***ing shitstains destroyed the economy because of your f***ing greed and lying. Be scared, f***ers.
[No, no reason for financial companies to worry about their employees' safety. Nope, none at all.]
They forgot, "REPORT ALL SIGHTINGS OF GUILLOTINES, IMMEDIATELY!"
Attention, all employees of banksters, rethuglians and teabaggers!! Don't forget to wear a Guy Fawkes mask if you find yourself among the OWS revolutionaries! Its MAGIC!
[What a Guy!]
Workers of the world unite!
[OWSies, meet the Wobblies!]
When you see a protest march...immediately disrobe and join the protest.
[A tip from the Ben Burch Handbook.]
I honestly don't see how they think that if they start charging more banking fees that they can stay in business and costumers will not leave them.
[Especially the costumers with Guy Fawkes masks.]
The opposition to the "OWS" movement could start to implant vandalizing trouble makers into the OWS crowds. . . .
[Beware of OWSIE FREEPER TROLLS!!!]
If you don't mind, I'm going to use this in an article.
[Which OccuPied Piper Pitt now does . . .]
Bank On It: They're Scared
[Bank it! Pretty clever there, Will! You are such a wordsmith!]
Once the "mainstream" news outlets finally deigned to lower themselves to report on the rabble down on Wall Street, their tone and tenor fairly oozed contempt. The New York Times, bastion of the status quo, published an article describing each and every participant of the OWS protest as a moonbeam-riding fuzzbrain, someone reeking of patchouli who couldn't string a coherent thought together if their life depended on it. . . .
[Incredible! The New York Times finally got something right!]
These protesters are bums, hippies, losers, anarchists, idiots, communists and fools. . . .
[OK, so what's the problem?]
According to Gandhi, the next step comes when they fight you, but here is the spot where his marvelous wisdom could use a bit of enhancement. First they ignore you, then they ridicule you... Then they get scared. And they are scared, now. You can smell it.
[Actually, Will, what you are smelling are the OWSies reeking of patchouli.]
Fact: OWS has bloomed in more than a dozen major cities all across the country. It stopped being a protest a while ago. It's a movement now.
[Fact: OccuPied Piper Pitt can't be moved out of his La-Z-Boy long enough to go and physically PARTICIPATE in any of these events.]
And it's true. They are scared. You can smell it.
[I think maybe it's Wee Willie who's scared. You can smell it. Smells like a Pitt.]
