The Denial of the Left

Here's a most "fascinating" video from the Occupy Wall Street "protest". It's introduced here.

It's bad enough to see ignorant Leftards parading around in Che t-shirts but for this fellow to proudly wear an East German Military uniform has to take the cake. There should be required viewing in our schools of the startling film, The Lives of Others, which illustrates how incredibly terrible that particular Leftist Utopia really was.

Update: Perhaps this is what the protesters in America are ideally hoping for.   h/t Stephen

He does not have a clue as to the results of what he wishes for. Typical mentality of the tools of those who do know what they work for.

As a German I find the idealizing of the ex Stasi disturbing, clearly this man never lived under a government where every factory every apartment building had at least one Stasi informant to keep the populous controlled.
Stalin called people like him "useful idiots."

He states the Republicans are asking for Class Warfare??!?!?!?!?

The tool doesn't realize that HE and his Donkey cohorts are the ones trying to stir up class warfare.

They know what they want, they just won't say it

East German leaders were just "ham-fisted" and "unimaginative" - that's all....

What an A$$hole.

What a twit!

My best advice is to leave the lot of them alone. Let them prance around, have their group orgy, group pout, and hissyfit, whatever. As long as there is no violence, nor blocking of lawful citizens going about their affairs, including all those going to work on Wall Street, then let them accomplish nothing.

We will see how devoted they are come the rains of November, and the sub-zero of December/January.

Best to ignore them, and give them the attention they so desperately crave. They are the idiot fringe, hardly a Leftwing Tea Party, these people are the epitome of stupid

Pity he can afford the uniform and not the dentist.

Posted by: sylvanguy at October 8, 2011 2:58 PM

.....and 'not' give them the attention.....of course.

Of course the dummies in the MSM will fawn all over them, trying to make heroes out of turds

To quote Don Cherry, they are "pukes".

Come October 17th I will see get to see the Canadian version of the Occupiers up close as I walk to work.

My suspicion is that the typical Toronto "meh" will be the result. The only problems will be if the idiots prevent the commuters from getting to their trains, streetcars and subways.

Utopianism is popular among the young, as they have newly adopted ideals and too little of life's experience to evaluate their practical application.

Their naivite´ or childishness is increased by being uneducated about history, most especially the history of Western Civilization.

One way to confound "progressive" types, mired in mid 20th antique 19th Century leftism, is to point out we have more people suffering from overeating than hunger now. That our system has produced so much wealth, managing that surplus is now a health crisis.

Posted by: Larry at October 8, 2011 3:28 PM

Now, now - would we complain if the Toronto Party and their bunker in TO were paved over for more highways? Or if McSquinty built a version of the East German Wall around it????

Wait, already is and they charge a Toll to roll over it?

Socialism's natural end result.

Socialism's Grecian Formula and free "psychological support".

Wherein George prays to "God".


"Suicide watch"

"The crisis has not only caused a rise in homelessness, but also in depression."

"George Barkouris, a 60-year-old unemployed radio technician who comes to the centre for psychological support, says he has experienced “huge distress” and suicidal thoughts since losing his job in public radio after 20 years of service. “At my age it’s difficult to find a job in anything,” he explained.

For the country as a whole, Barkouris is far from optimistic. “Greece?” he asked, looking up to the ceiling. “God help us.”"

Looks like the CBC greeter.

Those who will not learn from history are condemned to repeat it. Slavery has been a much more common "economic system" than a free market. Those jokers think that they'll somehow end up on top of a rebuilding of "the system"? Or, even less likely, that there is some system resulting in equal outcomes that isn't grossly unfair?

Thank you for posting this! I'm glad to have found your blog!!

Hell, even Brecht said something mean about the East Germans regime. "Would it not be easier... for the government to dissolve the people and elect another?"

And he was a hateful little commie tool (in both senses of the word.)

Saw a kind of organizing meeting in the old Woodward's complex on Skid Row in downtown eastside of Vancouver re: Wall Street type demos coming up shortly. I'm sure there was police undercover there, though no obvious evidence, though I think the CBC was there (of course).
We used to have an army base in Chilliwack a short distance away, but the Liberals in their wisdom and cowardice, shut it down. Most everything is now in Quebec. We may need them if the thing turns to ugly rioting like at the hockey play-offs, as the anarchist groups were active then too.

For another prime example of the lunacy of these morons,just saw interview on cnn with Don (I love Obama) Lemon.He had a 'Reverend' Billy Talen from 'the Church of Earthalujah,and the Stop Shopping Choir' on.My God,these people are out to lunch......and Donnie Lemon was just orga*mic.Putrid stuff.

ITYS: Socialism is a cannibal.

(*Don't look, Ethel.)


"'Occupy Wall Street' Protesters Call for Cannibalism (With Pictures)"

"Here are some of the dumbest signs that I had the displeasure of reading from the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement, which calls on people who work to pay for everything. In the meantime, the "poor" protesters get the word out on their laptops and iPhones.

Oddly enough, it seems that sign after sign talks about eating fellow human beings. This "movement" was already bizarre and phony, without the push for cannibalism:"

And not just any East German uniform, by the way.

The uniform of a captain in the "Grenztruppen der DDR". That is to say, the old East German border troops: the guys who shot anyone trying to escape to the West and freedom.

He must feel very proud indeed.

God save us all.

East Germany or socilism group link with Russia
West Germany more god lover link with USA

both proof of how one country get divided because sever different opionion of how to run country

now all problems in North America may create differences among people opionion
and how each can see it

Uniform was not wrong but also thier how to run country of German was issue with it

this is like one supermodle made nice dress but later can arrested for crime

these two are not related

thier evil do not wipe their beauty
this is like beauty and best in one body or one country
again I guess

I never care appearnace as I care about thier action of each individual to dislike a person or group

Check out this video clip of Occupy Atlanta posted by ConservARTive. Con. John Lewis(D) came to speak to the gathering but wasn't allowed the mic because the group couldn't come to a concensus and agree he could speak!
The video is hilarious.

"West Germany more god lover link with USA"

Where the f*ck do you get this stuff?

"Uniform was not wrong but also thier how to run country of German was issue with it"

Tell that to East Germans murdered for simply wanting to live in the west.

Just wait for the first Arctic airmass-carrying cold front to sweep through. That'll thin them out. Maybe even carry out some 'natural selection'.

Every nut and granola crunching/foam at the mouth tree hugger will see the Wall st. "rebellion" as their Mecca. I think this is good because it keeps them out in the open where rational and sane people can study them. After work and on days off of course. The East german guard is a perfect example. Note the beautifull locks of hair on his shoulder. A prodigy of our university system no doubt, tenured of course. Ah...the depth of his wisdom. Go through the crowd and enjoy. This type of entertainment is so hard to come by on cable TV. Most of them will be there for weeks as they do not work for a living and probably never have. The rest are faithfull Obama followers who know all their needs will be looked after as long as the anointed one remains in charge. The one theme they all have in common is "if it make money, it is evil". Not sure what the exit strategy is though. If they get their wish it would mean starving to death. (Warm fuzzy thought).

I stole this from the link:

His uniform and teeth say old line commie, but his hair says Berkeley professor. (Oops, sorry. Same thing.)

Posted by: dwright at October 9, 2011 4:24 AM

What do these folks do for a living?

Liked the part in the first clip with the EGerman uniform with a girl in the background jumping over a ledge with some sort of yellow fashion shopping bag.

The second video a nice lady in blue comes by and chats for awhile with a tall guy. Only pretty one I've seen in that crowd as well.

Maybe we'll get lucky and this gollem will get carried off by a tooth abcess.

"His uniform and teeth say old line commie, but his hair says Berkeley professor. (Oops, sorry. Same thing.)"

And how ironic too! No self-respecting officer and trusted party member in the old East German border troops would be seem sporting that particular haircut...

This buffoon wouldn't survive a day of service in the East German military; the National People's Army wasn't an organization for cosmopolitan and dilettante "useful idiots".

A few days as an infantry officer in an NVA motor rifle battalion would be an eye-opener for this fool.

I think if Americans ignore this made-in-the-White-House movement it will be at their own expense.

On that note, I just have to comment on that Chavez article at the link above. Note this: "Los Roques was declared a protected area in 1972 and it is unclear why local authorities permitted any private properties on the islands, effectively allowing the archipelago to become one of Latin America's most exclusive beach destinations."

Well, d'uh. Makes perfect sense if you're a tyrant. Declare a protected area; allow others to put their money into developing it; then seize control. What's not clear about it? And who couldn't have seen that coming.

The Canadian version is also coming to Vancouver and the crowd will be comprised of the usual suspects...anarchists, socialists and bongo drum beating vegetarians from East Vancouver. Libby Davies will be in the forefront with a bull horn.

I've seen "The Lives of Others". Absolutely chilling.
