Muppet-Wielding Protesters Occupy Rupert Murdoch’s Speech

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.

      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.

    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.

  2. PubOption

    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?

    1. 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?

    "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.

    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?

    1. finallyhappy

      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".

    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.

  6. 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.

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

    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

    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".

    1. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. MonsterAGoGo

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

  13. DashboardBuddha

    One plutocrat…ah ah ah
    Two plutocrats…ah ah ah
    Three, THREE plutocrats…ah ah ah
    :::cue lightning and thunder:::

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