Could we finally be coming to the end of “twinkles”

Honestly, I wouldn’t bet on it, but if it is to be so, in a strange, awesomely macabre way, I will miss them. Their crazy demands, Marxist philosophy, anti capitalist slogans were not only entertaining but also head scratching as they carried on their protest with their capitalist tools … umm … computers. Read on.

AP at Hot Air tweeted on this yesterday and even he was skeptical at first. But, alas, there are indeed cracks in the movement and its all the fault of those doggone drummers. Boom, boom, boom.

Friends, mediation with the drummers has been called off. It has gone on for more than 2 weeks and it has reached a dead end. The drummers formed a working group called Pulse and agreed to 2 hrs/day at times during the mediation, and more recently that changed to 4 hrs/day. It’s my feeling that we may have a fighting chance with the community board if we could indeed limit drumming and loud instrumentation to 12-2 PM and 4-6 PM, however that isn’t what’s happening.

Last night the drumming was near continuous until 10:30 PM at night. Today it began again at 11 AM. The drummers are fighting among themselves, there is no cohesive group. There is one assemblage called Pulse that organized most of the drummers into a group and went to GA for formal recognition and with a proposal.

The conclusion:

We need to take this seriously, and be clear that if we can’t deal with conflict and self-organizing then we are facing eviction very soon (this week), and the allies that helped turn out mass numbers at the last one will not be around this time, nor will the press be supportive. Additionally, Bloomberg released a statement a few days ago that said that he/the City plans to crack down on any violations as of this week. Once we lose community and ally support at Tuesday’s vote, the door is wide open for an eviction.

What to do?

So the same site has sent out a call to action, I presume, drummers not welcome:

PREAD THE WORD: (Substantiated call) ALL CALL FOR #OWS EVICTION DEFENSE SUPPORT FRIDAY 6AM. City is coming with sanitation crew to clean the park, requiring us to leave. We can come back provided we abide by the (public) park “owner’s” rules—no lying down, sleeping bags, tarps, generators, et cetera. This is how they evicted Bloombergville earlier this summer, and how they ended the M-15 encampments in Spain this year. Need mass numbers. PLEASE FORWARD / SHARE.

Meanwhile in Atlanta the Democrat Mayor is gettng ready to evict Occupy Atlanta, as opposed to negotiating with them in NYC. Oh the humanity. It’s always the drummers. In the meantime enjoy this video, also via HotAir … taken by a man who once lived under socialism, confronting the utopianists.


Ignorance is bliss, comrades!

    Go, stay, cost Nanny B. and the ‘good’ peeps of NY millions?? I don’t care.? Irrelevant doesn’t begin to describe the little whiners.? That this orchestrated Democrat sit-in has already failed has backfired for ineffectiveness should be enough, but I just know that the core of the little dim-witts has some violence in them.??

    It’ll be delicious to see the MSM defend the OWS dweebs (for whatever course of action a group, a few, etc. choose)?while defending Hizzoner while defending the (pro union)?NYPD while defending the right to assemble while defending the?illegal assembly on park public property while defending the rights of citizens of the city affected by the love in while…you get?the idea.?

    Too amusing.? Meanwhile, Rome burns – film at 11.?

      Irrelevant, really?
      Where are the Tea Parties?
      Oh, wait, I think they got sucked up by the very interest groups they originally were against.

        Ask the Democrats, who are demonstrably obsessed with them.? OWS is old news, while the handwringing about the TEA party is ongoing.

    They all want to march to their own drummer.? Not very communal.
    Cameras attract the foolish, including the wrinkled old guy.? “Capitalism is where people with a lot of capital want to make a profit.”? What?? Was he educated in public schools?? Could he be a teacher in the public schools?

    This is sad news from OWS.? We’re here reading the final chapter in “Clean Your Bedroom” aka how to “deal with conflict and self-organizing.”? Mommy was right.? Children who can pick up after themselves turn out to be adults who will be readily reliant.? Oh the drama.? And think about those poor moms when their adultish-children arrive home and the dirty laundry mothers will be expected to tackle.? This is an Armor Hammer moment if I ever read one.
    Dryer Sheets to the wind!

    Thank you – I’ve not had a good laugh in a few days.? This is what I needed to get out of my funk of the death of my friend.? I am amazed that there are people still around that are so uninformed as to what economic systems are and how they work.? Isn’t bailing out banks and financial companies creating a command economy?? The government is in control at that point, not the market.? Man, there just is no compensating for the stupidity of mob mentality.? Jefferson was right to declare Democracy mob rule.

    The woman in the video missed a golden opportunity to learn about real socialism from someone who actually lived under it. I can’t believe how dismissive she was when the videographer stated he had lived in the USSR, and blew off the fact that Che Guevara was a mass murderer. Do your homework, lady.
    A closed mind is a terrible thing.

    It’s amazing that this woman in the video actually heard of North Korea. This guy, I think his Russian accent is better then my Polish accent,?forgot to tell her that N. Korea also has nice and shiny concentration camps for people who?don’t “pull the wagon fast enough.”

    Consistently, the people most enamored of socialism/communism are those that never experienced it.? They like the rosy theoretical side of it their college philosophy professor lectured about, but never considered that people in those systems flee to America.? Not the other way around.?? Which explains why those loons were there.

      crystal4 says:

      Dimsdale, I am enamored of the fact that the right wing media is running around looking for idiots like this. Cherry-picking …and you jump right on it and run with it.
      Are you that easily manipulated or are you just goofing on this blog?

      • Dimsdale
        Dimsdale says:

        Isn’t supposedly finding racism at TEA parties an extreme version of “cherry picking”?
        You’ve done that.

    Just saw a thermal imaging of the London protest camp at night outside St. Paul’s cathedral.? Turns out only ONE tent is occupied…all the rest of the protestors?apparently leave their tents and sneak out to sleep, eat, shower, etc!? Far more civilized!

    crystal4 says:

    @ Dimsdale..only in answer to the people posting here that there were NO racist signs at Tea Parties.
    That would be like me saying there were NO socialists at OWS.

    • Dimsdale
      Dimsdale says:

      No, they were simply saying that if they existed, they were extremely hard to find, and condemned by the TEA party members if found.?? You can’t say that about the socialists, communists and anarchists at the OWS demonstrations.? I think only the Nazis have been low key, if you don’t count the extreme antisemitism displayed at OWS.? That’s racism, by the way.

      • crystal4
        crystal4 says:

        No, it was said that there were NONONO racists at ANY Tea Party and that I was not there so I was wrong.
        So I am assuming YOU personally went down to NY and now you are adding nazis and anti-semites to the mix of anarchists, communist and socialists…oh, and don’t forget dirty hippies.
        Why does the right want this movement infringed upon (an Iraq war veteran is in critical condition after being shot with a rubber bullet in CA).. serious question? here, hmmmm?

        There were Yom Kippur ceremonies held in OWS NY and other OWS cities. Did you know this or did Rush fail to comment on that?

      • Dimsdale
        Dimsdale says:

        Nope, just watching the disgusting display on YouTube like everyone else (except the media).?? I went to the communist/socialist sites and saw the “support” for myself.??? As for the dirty part, I have friends in NYC that say you smell OWS before you see it.? I was thinking of a foray to Boston though.
        Last time I looked, there was very little of the right running much in California, so whose rubber bullets were they???
        I really wish I could listen to Rush….

        You would think that with all the OWS approved technology (read it: Apple), there would be tons of evidence of all this TEA party racism.

    Enough with OWS already! OLD NEWS! And, boring.
    Let’s move on and have a civilized discussion about the failures of the current Zero Regime, for example. Or, why the Republican candidates criticize each other when Obama is the problem?
