Occupy Unveils ‘Spring Awakening’

During the long winter months, Occupy protesters kept reassuring those of us in the media still covering their actions that the spring would prove to be a time of resurgence for Occupy Wall Street.

Some of those Occupy protesters who famously got face fulls of pepper spray last November on the campus of University of California Davis have now filed suit in federal court.

They allege “the university used excessive force to break up the demonstration,” The Sacramento Bee writes. “The Occupy UC Davis students were sprayed as they sat on the ground.”

The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California is assisting the 19 students and alumni who are suing.

Everybody’s been too damn polite about this nonsense:

The “Occupy” movement, whether displaying itself on Wall Street or in the streets of Oakland (which has, with unspeakable cowardice, embraced it) is anything but an exercise of our blessed First Amendment. “Occupy” is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness. These clowns can do nothing but harm America.

Via Comedy Central: Stephen Colbert’s excellent interview with two Wall Street Occupiers — one awesomely named “Ketchup” — who do not bend or break under his questioning… or breakfast sausages.

(Part two is tonight, and how awesome would it be if Stephen really did put his SuperPAC bucks behind OWS?)

I was in the audience last night, and he told us that after the cameras stopped rolling, both of them were all over the breakfast items.” - academiadreams
