Scrolling through The Daily News’ live blog of the Occupy Wall Street protest in Times Square yesterday, this photo and caption jumped out at me:

Student loan debt a hot topic among Times Sq. crowd. “Student loans screwed up my credit!” one protester screamed while Shakina Nayfack, 30, of Washington Heights explained his...

This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

Dear Think Progress:

For the past several years you have been playing the race and extremist cards on people who oppose Obama’s policies, most particularly against the Tea Party movement and Fox News.  Your misleading video about...

I attended the Occupy Ithaca rally today, which was scheduled as a mass peaceful demonstration starting at noon outside a Bank of America branch in downtown Ithaca

As of 12:30 p.m., when I dropped by, there were about a dozen people holding signs.  I kind of felt sorry for them.

None of the...

Quote of the day, from a mostly sympathetic Walter Shapiro writing in The New Republic (h/t @SissyWillis):

How do I convey this respectfully as a veteran of the 1960s? This is not the 1967 Pentagon March or anything like it. Nothing I saw in New York this week justifies the current level of...

Today a bunch of college Dems have created an “Occupy Cornell” event. I don’t know what the objective of this is, but it looks like a pretty pathetic state of affairs in “solidarity.”

Here’s the transcript of the “occupation” if your eyes are in need of a good roll. Here’s my favorite...

In keeping with the new media notion of crowdsourcing–enthusiastically embraced by the mainstream media when trawling through Sarah Palin’s emails–Big Government will be providing...

I dare #OccupyWallStreet to try to #OccupyThisCar

Comments

I would love to see the #OccupyWallStreet protesters try to occupy this guy’s car.

It’s a fair bet that he’s not a fan of #OccupyWallStreet protesters carrying the Soviet Flag in Philadelphia, taking dumps on police cars in New York, or chanting stuff about doing it with animals.

In other words, he’s probably one of those dangerous extremists the Department of Homeland Security keeps warning us about.

Happy Columbus Day!

Where many of these protesters come from, this sort of talk is sticking it to The Man. Their sort of talk is conformity.

Meanwhile, I recommend Walter Russell Mead’s article explaining Columbus Day’s origin as a holiday celebrating the contributions of immigrants and Catholics to American society.

Is there anything #OccupyWallStreet protesters will not chant responsively?  Apparently not.

“Jump the shark” doesn’t begin to describe this sequence of responsive chanting (I think they call it human microphone or whatever).

We saw the responsive chanting at Occupy Atlanta, but this one takes the cake, as the crowd mindlessly repetively chants, “You can...

We’ve seen this before, at the celebration of Obama’s victory in 2008, where students unfurled the Soviet flag in celebration. I chalked that up to profound historical ignorance, much like the chic wearing of Che Guevara and Mao t-shirts.

The carrying of the Soviet flag at the Occupy Philadelphia protest, by contrast, more likely...

When this sticker was put on the car, the owner probably figured things were not yet out of control.  But after three weeks of #OccupyMadness, no question mark is needed.

On October 7, self-styled Occupy Wall Street reporter Allison Burtch, the proponent of “progressive stack” speech control, gave this advice to the #OccupyWallStreet movement:
