Michelle Fields interviews the astroturf

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

The supposedly 99% attempted to occupy the supposedly 1%, the CPAC conference.

But it seems the 99% were a bit hard up for warm bodies.


Pepper spray theater

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Observe that when the video begins, all the students obviously know that the designated group of pepper sprayees is going to be pepper sprayed, and everyone has taken their positions to spray, to be sprayed, or, for the great majority, to watch the spraying in the confident knowledge that only the designated evil bad guys will be spraying, and only the designated innocent victims at the designated spray point will be sprayed.

In the first five seconds of the video, top right, a cop pats a protestor on the shoulder, murmurs something in a friendly manner and the protester replies in a friendly manner “you are shooting us, that is fine, that is fine”, which sounds like the actor playing the good guy discussing the upcoming scene with the actor playing the bad guy, a few moments before they get into character.

Police protect astroturf to obstruct Seattle traffic

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

The Seattle Times tells us that:

Hundreds of demonstrators marched onto Seattle’s University Bridge Thursday halting traffic during the evening rush hour in one of several rallies nationwide for “Jobs Not Cuts.”

You may ask:  How did they manage to get “hundreds” to show up, and how could “hundreds” halt traffic? (more…)

Cops protecting the occupation

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Observe the cops keeping the occupiers safe as the occupiers illegally confront, harass, and obstruct drivers.

Without those cops, the occupiers would have been road kill.

The sins of “Occupy Wall Street”

This should not be necessary, but I observe right wing blogs blissfully unaware of what has been going on, so, a list: (more…)

More astroturf riots in Greece.

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

At one minute fifty seconds in this you tube video, a man carrying a burning molotov cocktail rushes up to police. They don’t react. He hurls it onto the ground, not at them, but right in front of himself. There is a huge spectacular whoosh as burning petrol sprays everywhere. They react only slightly. He runs away. They don’t chase him.

They act as if they knew in advance that a man was going to come rushing at them and hurl a molotov cocktail, not at them, but right in front of himself.

At forty seven seconds in this video a molotov hits right behind a cop. He does not turn around. He acts as if he knew in advance the molotov is coming and will land a short but safe distance from him.

You are supposed to believe that unless the Greek government gets more money to allieviate the condition of the oppressed masses, there will be communist revolution, but it is all fake and staged. (more…)

Government hires protestors to demand more government

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Powerline found an interesting job advertisement in Craigslist:

Under the job category “new york craigslist > brooklyn > jobs > government jobs”, people looking for a government job are invited to: “ FIGHT TO HOLD WALL STREET ACCOUNTABLE NOW! MAKE A DIFFERENCE! GET PAID!

I knew they were getting paid to protest, but until now there was some deniability – students were being turned out to protest by their professors, employees of government unions were being turned out to protest by their union bosses, ngo employees were being turned out by ngo bosses, rather than a flat out overt offer to get paid to show up and protest.

The astroturf arrives to “Occupy Wall Street”

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Until yesterday, the movement to occupy Wall Street was genuine, with a handful of lunatics and a few homeless hippies who had lost their way to the 1969 San Francisco love in.  The hilariously tiny turnout, and the general level of idiocy, was an embarrassment to the left, revealing that the left is not a mass movement, but an elite movement, that the left is merely the voice of the state, that there is no mob with pitchforks that the state is protecting the rich from.  And so, predictably, the astroturf showed up.

NGO astroturf

Friday, September 9th, 2011

NGO stands for “Non Government Organization”. The butcher and the baker do not call themselves non government organizations, because they actually are non government organizations.  Any organization that calls itself a non government organization turns out in practice to be largely a government organization.  It follows therefore, that an NGO is a government doing something evil.

More fake violence in Greece

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

A little of the violence is real, indeed more and more of it is real, but the vast majority of it is still imitation violence by astroturf, which I conjecture is imitation riot theater instigated by the government against itself to dramatize its imitation austerity theater.

Observe the trash fires at 0:14. Real rioters burn stuff more valuable than trash, and light bigger fires.

Observe at 0:24 the group of protestors armed with white sticks, all the sticks identical, and all rather small and light, suitable perhaps for disciplining a woman or a small boy, but definitely not the sort of thing that one should strike a man with, particularly a man wearing armor. That the sticks are light, indicates pretend violence. That the sticks are identical, indicates astroturf. Someone has got in a big batch of mass produced sticks, and handed them out. The sticks are white, for maximum visibility, to make a good image, rather than to shatter the bones of one’s enemies.

At 0:51 , observe some real violence – directed, of course, at a non state enemy.

At 1:06, observe the police detonate a noisy teargas canister a couple of feet downwind of their own feet, rather than at the protestors. Similarly at 1:16, where the police are almost teargassing themselves.

At 1:42 observe a little petrol unsurprisingly fail to set a stone building on fire – someone has thrown a tiny little molotov at a target that it cannot possibly harm. Indeed, places where it is so obviously safe to place a molotov are few and far between. Someone set this molotov for the least possible risk of damage.

At 2:10, another white stick, absolutely identical to every other white stick we saw in the video. The whole riot evidently has a single weapons supplier, a strong indication that this is an astroturf rent-a-mob riot.  Observe the way he is carrying the stick, revealing how light it is.
