Listen as two "victims" of the "torture" pepper spray incident smile and giggle at how horrible it was:
And, of course, it wouldn't be a California campus without a groveling chancellor ... and her totally unforgiving horde of pampered, spoiled charges:
Yep, you heard that right -- this pepper spray incident made international headlines. The myriad instances of OWS violence, property destruction, rape, theft, disease and DEATH? Not so much. In other words, we have an international mainstream media (along with the OWSers themselves) craving a Kent State moment by which to rally around.
Good luck with that. At Kent State, you had kids with real gripes, most especially that of conscription, which in Vietnam's case frequently meant death. The National Guard actually killed several students during a protest. The OWSers' gripes are not even close to being on par with that 'Nam generation's, and being pepper sprayed for absolutely refusing to move while you're blocking normal business and refusing numerous police orders ... is supposed to get my sympathy?
Cheeyeah, right. I happen to think that was the wrong tactic by the police; however, the denunciations that those cops are getting when compared to the pathetic shenanigans demonstrated by the OWSers is preposterously lopsided. Which, knowing our media, should be no surprise at all.Posted by Hube at November 22, 2011 04:45 PM | TrackBack
