Oppressed Wall Streeters Do Not Care For These Mean Protesters

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Here is video from Salon’s Justin Elliot of protesters having a merry little tussle this morning near the New York Stock Exchange, where cops have arrested as many as 75 protesters so far, for the crime of making it slightly more difficult for Wall Street employees to get to work, the most illegal thing in America right now.

Protesters converged on the Financial District in hopes of disrupting or delaying the opening bell of the stock market without luck in that particular endeavor, but the barricades and swarms of 99 percenters made “corrupt business as usual” a little tougher. And boy those employees think social justice is lame, when it is inconvenient (which is always)! The excellent OWS liveblog from the Guardian has some fun quotes from the crabby Wall Streeters:

Only employees with company ID are being allowed through. Workers, already blocked from leaving the subway at their usual exits are tutting and exhaling at police officers directing them away from streets closed because of the march.

There was little sympathy for the occupy movement here. “I’ve been trying to get to work for half an hour, they should throw them all in jail,” one woman said as she approached Exchange Place, where protesters had gathered and were sitting in a circle telling stories of economic hardship.

A man in a suit waiting to be allowed through a police barricade told his friend: “Don’t worry they’ll all get arrested in a minute.” Groups of protesters gathered in the streets parallel to Wall street, singing and chanting behind barriers.

Of course, not all of the financial types were in a massive hurry to get to work. A couple of them still had time to pull out their angry signs for some teevee cameras, to make an important point:

Yes, go get one of those jobs, that don’t exist! (Although, it bears repeating that 70% of OWS protesters have employment, compared to 56% of Tea Party idjits.) But anyway, forget these sad-faced slobs. Protesters are regrouping at Zuccotti Park despite the barricades, hooray! [NYT/Guardian/Salon]

Dude, that's not a job, that's a divine calling, a grace bestowed avocation! Did anybody check to see if those two douche bags were actually employed on Wall Street? Or weren't they more likely Fox News plants?

Hey Mr "Get A Job" guy. I would have a job but you arrogant deluded incompetent motherfuckers destroyed it.

They left the signs from your mother at home: "When are you getting married?" "Why don't you call anymore?" "You'd look so handsome if you wore more ties."

poncho_pilot November 17, 2011 at 2:12 pm

don't forget the signs from your grandmother: "are you…gay?" "are you ON DRUGS? you must be on DRUGS." "be careful, there are black people out there."*

*last one is an actual quote from my grandmother.

The alert from my granny, as we pulled into a 7-11, in whispered tones, was: "there's knee-GROWS on the corner!". There was, in fact, 3 or 4 sweaty* 10 to 12 yr olds standing around slurping Big Gulps.

*Looked like they'd just finished playing hoops at the school down the street.

Naw, because that might require them to fight, or sacrifice in some other way. They would be the rising capitalists getting wealthy liquidating seized Jewish property and finding ways to obtain raw materials from neutral countries. The people who would tut-tut at Kristallnacht, and express "regret that things got so out of hand", "out of an excess of enthusiasm and love of the Führer. Understandable, to be sure, but these things should be done in an orderly way. The Führer will certainly convey his displeasure at the most serious offenders." The people who will wince and shake their heads gently when their Swedish contact for iron ore shipments touches on the topic of deportations and disappearances "Yes, there are excesses, and those are very regrettable. Of course, there is no doubt that something must be done to address the Jewish Question, but I agree completely with you that [specific outrage just mentioned] was unnecessary and I'm sure the officers have been reprimanded." The people who want to cultivate the illusion that they are above all the most despicable of the acts, while facilitating, profiting handsomely from, and (in general, not always in specific) encouraging them all the way.

That's what kind of people these are.

If the protesters whack those assholes over the head with a bat they could probably have their jobs. Job creators!

Quite likely, it would show ambition, drive and the competitive instinct necessary to thrive in the current business environment.

"Occupy a Desk." The razor-sharp wit, it slays me.

Perhaps they SHOULD occupy a desk – his desk.

That's undoubtedly all HE does with it. It's not like these assbites do any real work or produce anything of value.

MilwaukeeKent November 17, 2011 at 10:10 pm

Hey! Moving money from one account to another while pocketing part of it isn't hard work? Just look at the muscles on those index fingers!

johnnyzhivago November 17, 2011 at 1:49 pm

Does that second sign say "Occupy a Dock" ?

Are these Wall Street guys or out of work Ferryboat Captains?

I want to take the two sign holders and bury them up to their necks in my yard, then introduce them to my John Deere riding lawn mower. Or maybe my old rusty push rotating blade mower might do the job–more strenuous yes, yet deliciously satisfying.

CommieLibunatic November 17, 2011 at 2:20 pm

I'd rather let them live so they can learn the meaning of regret.

elviouslyqueer November 17, 2011 at 2:51 pm

Oh right. Like these motherfuckers know any other emotion than untrammeled greed.

Numbat_Dundee November 17, 2011 at 3:57 pm

They'd feel plenty of regret as the blades of the lawn mower approached – surely?

Old Wall Street: fire workers.

They're just patriotic job creators advertising job openings they have created at their job-creating companies, right?

Because otherwise they're just being dildos.

Slightly OT, but how it is that the Guardian UK has been able to do a far better job of reporting on OWS than any stateside media outlet (with all due respect to Riley's one person news corp., of course)?

real_dc_native November 17, 2011 at 6:09 pm

Congressman Peter King explained this on Laura Ingram's radio show last month:

“It’s really important for us not to give any legitimacy to these people in the streets, I remember what happened in the 1960s when the left-wing took to the streets and somehow the media glorified them and it ended up shaping policy. We can’t allow that to happen.”

It's ironic that people with socially detrimental, made-up "jobs" in the financial industry (which seems to consist mostly of legal loan sharking and betting nowadays) would lecture others on the importance of work.

Suggestions:
1. Change slogan to "Make up your own job!" or "Pursue morally dubious paths to success!"
2. Don't borrow neon-green posterboard from Junior, he needs it for his school project

CommieLibunatic November 17, 2011 at 2:36 pm

I've never trusted anyone who made a living from an abstraction. Their "job" doesn't even produce anything or perform some act that nobody else can.

No snark here. I'm afraid it's impossible to muster in the face of such sneering, unrepentant evil.

GOPCrusher November 17, 2011 at 4:14 pm

The fact that they call what they do "work", defies all the laws of physical science.

I almost wished the economy would tank just a tad more so some bank would fail. Preferably Goldman Sachs, just to see these fuckers whine and moan when they go out the door with nothing – no job, no golden parachute, no investments left.

Unless, of course, they went short on GS stock.

I know righties reinvent history and stuff, but, maybe when you're outnumbered by 100 to 1, you may want to start acting a little less cornholish. (Though, I think it's too late).

Chichikovovich November 17, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Beg pardon in advance for reusing an old post, but every time I see slime mold like those pictured holding the signs I can't resist the urge to repeat it. It's my go-to response when talking to "OWS are moochers" types. [It is true, Chichikovna and I are close friends with the three physicians described.]:

Several friends of mine in NYC go to the OWS every day, when they're not working. The three of them are all pediatric oncologists that my wife met in med school. You know, people who do everything they can to save kids from dying of cancer?

What do you do for a living Mr. Non-moocher?

elviouslyqueer November 17, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Now Chichi, he Occupies a Desk, making him a Very Important Job Creator. Your piddling pediatric oncologist friends only merely save lives, but they don't occupy a desk. Therefore, Not Important.

Fukui_sanYesOta November 17, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Huh, pediatric oncologists? How many screens do they have on their desks?

See that guy on the right? He has eight screens on his desk. Eight. And you know what they show? Fucking graphs, man, and some tables of figures highlighted in red and green. What do your friends have? Oh, MRI scans – la de da. Patient notes. Ha! GRAPHS!

You know what else that guy on the right does? Shouts into phones all day. Yeah, that's right, shouts into phones. What do your friends do? Have "quiet talks" with some parents when they're not playing with children, delivering "diagnoses" and "prognoses". Not a shout be to heard.

EIGHT SCREENS motherfucker. WITH GRAPHS!

Nesnora November 17, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Col. Mustard and Mr. Green's milquetoast "backlash" isn't any different than the grumpy-racist-myopic-grandfather complaints over the anti-war and civil rights movements in the 60's…

What I find hilarious are the efforts to discredit the movement by calling them "unwashed masses" and unemployed hippies… they seem to have missed that the whole point of this is revealing the extreme social divides and elitist policies that protect only the rights of the people that can buy it.

So go ahead, I hope more suits come out and emphasize their unapologetic, Ayn Randian values. As someone who works in midtown, I'm happy to call-in with any travel delays I have because other Americans are out in the freezing rain takin' tons of bullshit for my democracy. I think it's the least I can do, besides donating remnants of my paycheck.

GOPCrusher November 17, 2011 at 4:23 pm

I like the assumption that the protesters engage in violent activities and therefore, the police and National Guard should be sent in to crack some skulls to break up the protests.

You guys, I'm home from work and watching the coverage of Occupy Portland, but unfortunately, the only channel that's carrying the coverage is Fox News (puke*puke*puke). The blond ditz who's narrating is giving us deathless reportage like this:
Some fuck: It looks like there's one person who got pepper sprayed.
Some other fuck: Yes, and he appears to be in a great deal of pain.
My brain: No fucking duh, sherlock!
Fuck (continuing): Although it's not clear whether that person was pepper sprayed by police or other protestors…
You know, because it's really a rarity for protestors to be pepper sprayed by police, and really a commonplace for protestors to get pepper sprayed by *other protestors*, right?Fox Fuck: Officer Whozis, at what point is it not OK for protestors to get confrontational with police officers?
Which I translated as, "At what point is it OK for armed police officers in riot gear to gas, beat, and arrest protestors for behaving in an unseemly manner?"

Part 2:
To his credit, I will say that Officer Whozis said that part of the police officer's job was *not* to react to verbal provocation, or anything short of being physically attacked, but I don't think I can stand to watch anymore of this sort of "coverage", even though it's probably my civic duty.
*raises hand*
May I be excused now, please?

I'm sure that if this were a Teabagger rally, the wall street douches would *still* be acting like unbelievable pricks, right?
