Past Musings from The Lady

Yesterday was the 4th installment of “Moral Mondays” organized by the NAACP in front of the NC General Assembly. I’ve retitled them Meltdown Mondays, which is exactly what they are. No costumes this time, but I have high hopes for the next one. Highlights included Melissa Harris Perry showing up in order to apply her own brand of creepy shame, a couple of social justice speeches, chanting, singing and of course, more arrests. Without arrests and a big hoopla surrounding it, the media and people get bored and tune out. This is how Occupy did it, but they eventually wore out their welcome and people’s patience. ABC11 hits the nail on the head in the middle of their report:
Protesters have been seeking to call attention to the rightward shift of the state legislature, which was dominated for decades by moderate Democrats.
Yep. Elections have consequences.
“Mega Moral Monday”
The turnout was larger than last time, even with a week off, police said 1,000 and protesters said 1,600. Usually a break like that kills momentum and crowds are smaller, so what gives? What gives is the various Lefty organizations coordinating behind the scenes to pump up the numbers. Via watching the streaming online video, watching Twitter and noting the signage, the following groups were there:
NC Student Power Union
NC Justice Center
That probably isn’t all of them either. I added SEIU to the list since they clearly where there (ABC11), emphasis added: Continue reading
Looks like more proof I was right about NC Student Power Union being one of many offshoots of Occupy Raleigh, or at bare minimum comrades in arms. They all celebrated May Day together in downtown Raleigh. It wasn’t as dramatic as Seattle, but it wasn’t totally boring either.
Thank you to those with the NCSPU (Student Power Union) who engaged in civil disobedience yesterday as the fight… fb.me/2Vts2XVfV

Uh oh. Looks like someone is sad panda that I called them and their Occupy pals out.
“Can’t wait to see how they freak out when we get in their faces.”
Ah…shades of Occupy. Mostly peaceful except when getting in people’s faces, defecating on cars, destroying public parks, destroying private businesses and their property, shouting at school children, throwing molotov cocktails, murdering people, raping people and of course, plotting to bomb bridges.
Yes, Zaina Alsous — you are an occupier just changing ships, often actually. Same goes for the laughing Juan Miranda. I chuckled.
The comments are precious, as was the comment posted on the cross-posted article at WatchDogWire. The young man posting at WatchDogWire ranted about the cost of living and paying for education yet according to Facebook, he’s in the Wake Tech Network. For those not local to the Research Triangle area, that is one of the most reasonably priced community colleges around. I replied to the young man as I can understand he’s frustrated, however he did little to convince me what I wrote was inaccurate. I know how the Left rolls.
The assumption about Wake Tech was cemented here, with the commenter’s occupy fascination here and here.
Oh whoops, did I just commit more of that ‘serious investigative journalism’? I laughed at that line. The ties between NC Student Power Union, Debt Strike and Occupy are clear, aided by the same people being recycled and involved in them. It’s also clear, by the reactions here that I hit the nail pretty squarely on the head with the article.
Side Note: Occupy NCSU, NC Student Power Union both have blocked me on Twitter. So much for getting in my face. Continue reading
