The occupy wall st. protest is nothing but a vanity protest 27.Sep.2011 17:43

The occupy wall st. protest is nothing but a vanity protest with no teeth and they will get nothing real from big money as a result. It seems that none of these protesters have an understanding that to confront power you must shut their business down and force them to negotiate. Occupying a park, standing around being indignant and marching around police designated free speech zones will produce absolutely no results.

I have been in direct communication with some of the protesters but they are, as a group, defensive and frightened of direct confrontation. I have attempted to push them in the direction of non-violent civil disobedient traffic blocking which would, build the movement much faster than trying to get the corporate media to pay attention to them but I've had no success in this department.

Until these protesters shut New York City down for months they will be treated with nothing but the dismissal they have for effective tactics. They have had their fifteen minutes of fame and they are now irrelevant, that is, until they do something the employed and unemployed working people can respond to like making some kind of sacrifice, like giving up their freedom and being arrested shutting down NYC during working hours, during the week days. Otherwise occupy wall st. is just another ineffective vanity protest which the Americans are very good at.

I agree to a degree, but are you armchairing in hyperbolle mode 27.Sep.2011 19:40

QB Blitz

so Lloyd are you spearheading the Oct 6 Portland occupy protest "direct actions" / "shutdowns" "etc"

I'm sure you can lead by example?

Armchair quarterbacking protest movement into direct action is an interesting model of "do what I say for you to do"

Now, I'm wondering if your QB plays will see fruition on Oct Th, or is this only "your own few moments of having your own fifteen minutes of fame and now (ironically) "YOU" are irrelevant,

Then again armchair QB usually wont be seen in the streets ... there "best" works are done sitting in a chair

As I titled this, I generally agree, but I don't agree w/ arm-chairing a slap on the face of activist in the streets *while your door is locked and your computer is on.

Hey don't worry I'm sure we will see you on Oct 6th leading nd organizing .... then again I bet you may just be QB-ing w/ your door locked

Cheers!

I've brought down the government of British Columbia with civil disobedience, have had guns shoved in my face, been stocked for death by the aryan nations and the nazi skinheads for confronting them in the streets of Vancouver while others that called themselves activists pissed their pants. I have been on multiple government's watch lists because my father was the smartest man that ever worked for them and died because of their criminal incompetence and I exposed them for it. I have had to survive several attempts on my life. I simply won't work with cowards because cowards get activists like me killed or imprisoned for long periods of time. You know like all the so-called activists who told lies about the forest activists who are now in prison to get lighter sentences.

I am the QB of effective protest but what I have discovered is most Americans are pissing in their pants cowards.
