Dear #OWS: This is what a REAL brutal crackdown actually looks like / #OccupyCLT

Posted by: ST on December 18, 2011 at 10:45 am

Egyptian woman being beatenI read/see horrific stories/pictures/video like this about brutal crackdowns on opposition marchers in Middle Eastern countries and, of course, become enraged. Then I think about how both the pampered college-aged & middle-aged hippies equate their “struggles” to that of militant countries like Egypt and the like just because they’ve been (gasp!) pepper-sprayed to prevent them from continuing to camp overnight in places across the country they aren’t supposed to, and I become even more enraged at their sheer audacity. These willfully ignorant fools actually believe that being pepper sprayed means they live in a “police state.” Maybe they should talk to the young woman in this video to find out what it means to live in a real police state where the authorities don’t give a damn about human rights and liberty and justice and equality.

Assuming she’s still alive, anyway. The Atlantic describes the scene in the photo:

But there is something especially barbaric about this photo. The taboo of violence against unarmed women is unusually strong in the Arab world. But to watch three soldiers beat a defenseless woman with batons, their fists, and for one extraordinarily cruel soldier with his boot, is not even the most provocative part. For these men to pull her black abaya above her head and expose her midriff and chest is, for Egypt, a profound and sexually charged humiliation. And there is a certain awful irony of using that abaya, a symbol of modesty and piety, to cover her face and drag her on the street that, though probably not intentional, will not be lost on Egyptian eyes.

The Occupy “revolutionaries” here are fond of pointing to pictures of protesters locking hands in solidarity against the police as an example of “what democracy looks like.” They’re also fond of shrieking “police state!” every time a cop even looks at them funny. And when they’re told it’s ok to protest at a park, but it’s not ok to camp there overnight due to health/safety concerns & are forcibly removed via pepper spray and sometimes rubber bullets used by police who – most of the time – show remarkable restraint, they liken their “plight” to protesters in countries where police are allowed to do whatever they want to protesters whose paths they cross, including brutally beat, sexually assault, rape, torture, and/or kill.

Next time you come across one of your local Occupiers and they whine to you about alleged “police brutality”, point them to this link, ok? And then tell them that if they’re smart they’ll get some perspective on how they’re treated here in America versus how they’d be treated in other countries for what they’re doing. Chances are, you won’t get through to their tiny, narrow, closed minds but at least later on you can say you tried.

    They’ll just replace the soldiers uniforms with LAPD and CMPD and others and say they’re the same thing. Because, you know, being pepper sprayed after being warned nicely a dozen times is the exact same thing…

    The woman was in her rag cage and the men drug her out to expose her and beat her. Looks like a rag cage doesn’t count for much when the men around you want something different. Keep on wearing those rag cages for “protection,” sisters; they sure do a lot of good when you have the nerve to have an opinion that men don’t like.

    I love to mess with our local “occupy” encampment, on the SC State House grounds. Went there the other day with a sign that read “NOT the 99%” on one side and “100% astroturf” on the other. I discovered what really makes them mad and want to resort to violence……mockery. They started their “we are the 99%” chant and I pulled a harmonica out of my pocket, started playing and doing a crazy dance to their chant. they were so stunned they couldn’t do anything but start calling me names and threatening me with violence. Why is it that the only dogs you see at “occupy” encampments are pit bulls? Yeah, they aren’t violent!

    One of the greatest leaders of the 20th century, Winston Churchill once said, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”.

    The Democratic Party, having been hijacked by Socialists, which has become clear to most intelligent Americans now, is in the process of being rejected by the average American voter who doesn’t subscribe to the “philosophy of failure” narrative.

    So we see Obama trying to pretend he’s moving back toward the center of the political spectrum as he struggles to overcome record setting disapproval numbers. And the Socialists in the Democratic Party, feeling abandoned by Obama, are spilling out into the streets under the ruse of the OWS Movement, like angry hornets from a rattled nest.

    The OWS protestors, trying to capitalize on, and equate themselves to, the “Arab Spring” protestors in real totalitarian states, constantly try to bait the police in various OWS cities into using more aggressive crowd control tactics by breaking any and all laws regarding “peaceful assembly”. This creates a “photo opportunity”, that the OWS allies in the MSM, are all too happy to exploit in their attempt to sway the American public. But so far it has back fired each and every time.

    If this was a real totalitarian state, none of those OWS protestors, would have the courage to come out into the streets.

    Oh, but if only the protestors were facing a government that actually called themselves “Communist”! Ooopsie, that happened, didn’t it, at Tienanmen Square.

  6. William says:

    There is no doubt that the woman being exposed in the photographed, while being batoned or clubbed, dragged, kicked, and more, was, or will be arrested for sexual fornication and exposing herself, found guilty because there will not be four Muslim men to come forward as witnesses in her defense, and she will be sentenced to prison time as well as being buried up to her neck in the earth, then stoned to death, or bound and flogged from 70 lashes to a few hundred, often passing out, and even dying before, or around the 70th lash.

    You gotta’ love the logic, love, compassion, tolerance, respect, mercy, and kindness of the members of the Religion of Peace, Love, Mercy, Tolerance, and Compassion, as well as those who are devout Communists, Fascists, Stalinists, Leninists, Marxists, and Maoists.

    Truly the USA’s police are the most violent, mean, and sadistic in the universe, for they kidnap and torture women and children 24/7, and they kick dogs and cats, while in other nations they always have time forl hugs and kisses for everyone, and they would NEVER rip a woman’s clothes off and beat and abuse her (Sarcasim = off/)

    The “Occupiers” are too stupid to realize that this photo is what Obhammud’s “democracy” looks like, if given the chance.

  8. Drew the Infidel says:

    Occupy this!

  9. Krystal says:

    In the US the Clinton regime went after 80 people in Waco TX killing them – men, women and children. Seems the left doesn’t care about that brutality or Ruby Ridge and the list goes on with the brutal tactics and corruption of the Clinton regime.

  10. Carlos says:

    Ruby Ridge, Waco and all the rest were GW’s fault, don’tcha know, Krystal? After all, he was just getting warmed up for his run at the presidency and was only acting through the marionettes he surrepticiously made Clinton appoint…
