Occupy Wall Street protesters celebrated the movement’s anniversary on Monday by clogging intersections in the city’s financial district, marching to the beat of drums that were a familiar refrain last year.
Protesters roamed around the lower Manhattan financial district all morning in groups of a few dozen each, from one intersection to another and back again, chanting loudly about the ills of Wall Street. In total, there were a few hundred protesters scattered throughout the city. More than 180 of them were arrested by early Monday evening, mostly on disorderly conduct charges.
First up the whole “Occupy” Movement is dying…good! Second, “Few Hundred Protesters” and 180 Arrests? Not sure exactly how those numbers line up, but it sounds to me like well over 50% managed to act an ass enough to get a ride in a cruiser and face charges. Funny how you don’t hear about such assclownery in conservative protests like the Tea Party.
As I’ve said before, if you see people waiving “Progressive” signs, that’s a good place NOT to be, as a riot is soon to come. “Progressives” are angry and violent people.
