The depths of human stupidity never cease to amaze me, and the yahoos currently making Vancouver’s Art Gallery site look like a refugee camp are no exception. The double-speak coming from some of these folks is truly amazing.
As has been widely reported, there has been one drug overdose that almost killed an American man and it is believed a second overdose is the cause of death for a young 23-year-old Victoria woman, Ashlie Gough, who was found dead in her tent.
Event organizers, of course, claim the camp is drug-free.
Apparently drug-free just doesn’t mean what it used to, but that really shouldn’t surprise me.
The folks currently making a mess of the Art Gallery lawns are, of course, not the kind of folks who will actually pay to clean up any of the mess they’ve created. They prefer to say it is their “right” to be there and along with it, their “right” to have someone else pick up the tab for their “lifestyle choice”.
I remember when the Clayoquot Sound protests were going on many years ago… Everyone was asking me if I was going. I laughed at them for the simple reason that I had a job and rent to pay…
The only people that I knew who could afford the time to go to Clayoquot Sound to protest were the guys and gals on welfare. Anyone with a job (and who wanted to keep that job) wasn’t going anywhere…
I doubt the current Occupy Vancouver protestors are much different. Who else can afford all the time just sitting around demanding someone else foot the tab for everything? Certainly it’s not the folks with jobs and bills to pay.
They’re too busy… well… working to earn the money that will be stolen from their paychecks by government in order to fund all these Occupy Protestors’ welfare checks.
Anyone that’s not homeless isn’t really about to go sleep in the rain with a bunch of people who haven’t showered in weeks when there’s a perfectly good bed (warm) and shower sitting at home in the apartment they pay for.
But hey, I’m probably just one of those nasty capitalist pigs these people seem so dead set against.
Corporations make profits. That’s their function, after all. How else do you think all those pesky employees get paid?
It’s not like the losers sucking off the government tit (aka welfare), whose primary goal in life if these Occupy Protestors are anything to go by, appears to be to destroy the very system that hands them money every month for doing nothing.
Where exactly do they think the government gets all the money these leeches demand like it’s their bloody birthright each month?
It’s stolen from the productive citizens with jobs, those working for the evil corporations whose products these hypocritical protestors use daily.
Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson has finally gotten off his ass and is attempting to get the squatters removed from Vancouver’s Art Gallery.
It’s about bloody time.
Everyone has the right to protest things they think are wrong, let me be clear about that. They do NOT, however, have the right to destroy public property and squat in tents wherever they please.
Someone sent me a link to a video that perfectly describes the hypocrisy the world is being forced to witness across North America with these Occupy protests….
It’s called “A Day in the Life of an Occupy Wall Street Participant”.
