Occupy Oakland media spokesman Mike King, speaking about efforts to shut down west coast ports:
"It's a group that encapsulates basically everything that is wrong with society."Brilliant. Just brilliant. A leftist's version of Palin-speak.
From MSNBC (12/12/2001):
"The objective of the day is to shut down the port through mass action," said Mike King, a graduate student who acts as a media liaison for Occupy Oakland. "The Occupy movement is attacking the 1 percent at their point of profit."I beg to differ. A much wiser commenter rightfully observes:
Good job idiots! You have effectively kept 200 middle class blue collar workers from their jobs. They will not be paid as a result of your stupidity! And just in time for the holidays as well. The businesses that lose some revenue today because of your actions will not feel this shut shut down. The average worker who loses a days wages will. When will you idiots get it through your head that this type of protest is only further hurting those thay you claim to represent.My thoughts exactly.
