Muppet-Wielding Protesters Occupy Rupert Murdoch’s Speech

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

This is going to be what’s it’s like for the Rupert Murdochs of the world, from now on. We hope, anyway! Just full-on harassment and outbursts until these kleptocrats are scared to leave their penthouses, which will then be burnt down, by dragons.

    I'm surprised his wife, Kato wasn't there, in the bitch slap of a hummingbird, to clear the joint.

      You don't think Wendy's equipped with some kind of MMA skill set to defend Rupert the Meal Ticket? She moved like a cat last time.

      • Barb

        Bitch is part cat, part Ninja.

        • ttommyunger

          Don't forget Rupert's favorite part.

  • AnAmericanInTO

    Certainly old Rupert recognized the Count as one of his own bloodsucking brethren.

    Occupy Sesame Street? I didn't realize that Kermit was an investment banker.

    • flamingpdog

      It's not easy stealin' green.

  • littlebigdaddy

    Was the hungry muppet girl there?

    "Muppet-Weilding Protesters"
    Needs more spell check.

    (Mission Accomplished!)

    A better, truer, more come-to-life impersonation of Montgomery Burns I have never seen.

      Sadly he's no muppet but an actual (soulless) human.

  • offbrandboobs

    Very classy retort, Rupes. But we all know you'll tap the one phone call she gets in the jailhouse, you slimy goat's ass.

    Murdoch's comments on education are reminiscent of what he did to the newspaper business in Britain in the 1980's: don't just put computers in old newsrooms, but build new printing plants with fewer unionized workers. Is he intending to have children taught lies and propaganda as well?

    • KrayZBaggerLayD

      Why would he want them taught anything else? More to the point, how could he hold on to his empire and the DragonLadyBitchWife if the children are taught anything else?

    • LuthielV

      The fact that Murdoch is talking about education just gives me chills and not the good kind.

  • paris biltong

    "A little controversy makes it more interesting." If I remember correctly, Louis XVI and Nicolas II also said something along those lines. Good luck, you Aussie asshole.

    • nounverb911

      Madame Defarge is still knitting.

    • Negropolis

      Let them eat Twitter-cake.

  • DahBoner

    Rupert Murdoch?

    I thought he was in prison….

  • http://wonkette.com Pres.Libunatic

    Ah, the nervous titters of the 1% realizing that the proles are kinda pissed off at them right now.

    You know who ELSE got heckled by giant-puppet wearing protestors?

      Dick Cheney. I got to wear the DIck Cheney head at a Green Fest event and people hit me in the head. So I started to give them the finger and scream " Fuck You".

      • Schmannnity

        The true Cheney response is to shoot them in the face after a half dozen beers.

    By dragons? I didn't know Trogdor was an Occupado

    To be honset, his speech was pretty boring up until then.

  • BarackMyWorld

    I'll feel better when I see the Muppets doing a cover of "Fight the Power." Fozzy would do Flavor Flav's lines, of course.

  • ThundercatHo

    Too bad Miss Piggy wasn't there or she would have Hai Ya'd those bitches faster than you could say "Makin' Bacon".

    Let's see…Murdoch has to fire his cabinet, announce some half-hearted reforms, vow never to leave, transfer power to his son, hide in one of his redoubts, and then finally capitulate.

    Just fantasizing here. What step are we at now? It's wonderful when the Obscenely Rich become subjects of public scorn and ridicule: once you've bought yourself every conceivable plaything, public adulation is the only reward worth having.

  • Callyson

    Occupy Sesame Street, indeed. I'd love to see the Cookie Monster make mincemeat out of Rupert Murdoch…

  • arihaya

    from wikipedia:

    On this day…

    October 16
    1793 – Marie Antoinette, queen consort of Louis XVII, was guillotined at the Place de la Révolution in Paris

    • Dudleydidwrong

      Let the tradition continue!

    • Geminisunmars

      Viva La Revolution!!!

  • Antispandex

    Some say, there is nothing of value left in America. I disagree! Murdoch is a priceless asshole.

    I thought his lizard skin was about to start coming off there for a second.

    Occupy Sesame Street! Big Bird's reign of tyranny must come to its end! For goodness sake, he's nested so much he's got Oscar living hand-to-mouth out of a garbage can! Mr. Bird needs to be taught that lobster is but a "sometimes food".

    I live for the day when Rupert Murdoch dies.

    • flamingpdog

      But I'm not watching the TV news or reading newspapers for a week after he dies so I can avoid all the stomach-turning tributes to his legacy.

  • LetUsBray

    Hey, is that a Teleprompter Mr. News Corp. is using? I thought only Secret Muslim anti-colonialist Kenyans used those. Let's see Rupert's long-form birth certificate!

  • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

    C is for Kochsuckers, that's good enough for me…

  • MonsterAGoGo

    Die, Rupert. Die a hated sick old man whose passing will be celebrated. Die of something cripplingly painful.

  • ttommyunger

    So many assholes, so few Muppets.

  • DashboardBuddha

    One plutocrat…ah ah ah
    Two plutocrats…ah ah ah
    Three, THREE plutocrats…ah ah ah

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    The muppets should give Murdoch a break. After all, he has phones to tap and circulation numbers to forge. He is a busy man.

  • LuthielV

    Dragons are the 99% :)
