“Neo-Cannibals, Deadbeats, Dopers and Democrats Occupy Denver.”

El Marco at Looking at the Left writes:

“Occupy Denver” returned to the streets with a vengeance Saturday after being expelled, having their camp forcibly removed from Veterans’ Park by police at 4 a.m. Friday morning. October 15 was declared International Day of Action, which saw radical socialist/anarchist protests and violence in European and American cities.

The Occupy Denver crowd reached approximately 2,000-3,000.

El Marco has many remarkable photos plus biting commentary on the demonstrators. Here are some of the slogans the protesters had on their signs:

“Greed is so yesterday.”

“The war on terror is a hoax.”

“Corporate money out of politics now!”

Remember the Guillotine?”

“Another world is possible.”

“Eat the Rich!”

“One day the poor will have nothing left to eat but the rich!”

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. We are the 99%.”
(Carried by a young woman who looks as though she weighs about 250 pounds.)

“When the sword of rebellion is drawn, the sheaf should be thrown away.”

“Crush Capitalism.”

“Capitalism kills people and destroys the environment.”

“True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security.”
(LA comments: A Soviet Communist theme used against the U.S. at the height of the Cold War.)

“They are taking your happiness. We are the 99%. Steal it!”

“True Transformation Takes 100%.”
(El Marco comments: “Anarchism, according to the sign in front, is a totalitarian ideology. TRUE TRANSFORMATION TAKES 100%. No deviation allowed.”)

“Deadbeat, potsmoking hippies for … whatever we’re for!”

“Hey Wall Street, next I’m going to Occupy your Mom.”

El Marco comments: “Joe Sacco has a degree in film making. I asked him if he would turn down a job with a salary of $74,000, and he said that he would consider it, depending on the benefits package. He made it clear that his sign is totally serious.”

El Marco also writes:

One of the focuses, understandably, of the rally was the desperate need in America for jobs. While the blame for the unemployment situation was placed on the “bankers” for “ruining our economy”, many of the participants appeared to be the authors of their own misfortune. Pop-culture fashion today dictates that women and men put huge tattoos across their chests, arms, legs, backs, hands, and if they are really daring, on their faces. Top that off with a matted mass of mop-like dreadlocks and a few rings and studs piercing nostrils, eyelids, and lips, and you may be out of luck when it comes to finding a job. Add to that habitual drug use, including the chronic lethargy, munchies, and short-term memory loss caused by smoking high potency modern cannabis, and you have created a person that not even the most open-minded liberal will employ. But it’s always easier to blame the bankers than to face the reality of bad choices that ruin a person’s life.
