Commie Punks Protest Olympics

A policeman is attacked by protesters in London

The scum of the earth — wretched asinine left-wingers — have descended on Ye Merry Olde to make an Olympic-class nuisance of themselves:

Hours after the opening ceremony fireworks echoed around east London, up to 400 demonstrators marched through a neighborhood near the Olympic Park to protest what they called the “Corporate Olympics.”
The event, organized by Counter-Olympic Network and supported by 35 groups ranging from Occupy London to ecological and local anti-austerity campaigners, targeted issues including free tickets for sponsors, missile sites on residential blocks and the ethics of Olympic corporations such as BP and Dow Chemicals.
“A significant number of people in this country — about 20 percent, according to a poll — are not happy with the Olympics because of the involvement of large corporations about which are significant concerns,” said Julian Cheyne of the Counter-Olympic Network. “We are representing their views and making sure that opinion is expressed.
“It is shameful that BP is a sustainability partner of the Olympics after the damage it did to the Gulf coast with their spill, and Dow Chemicals are not meeting their moral and ethical obligations to help the victims of the Bhopal disaster.”

Julian Cheyne, just so you know, is a former resident of an East London housing co-op that was demolished five years ago to make way for the Olympics. He has managed to hustle his “victimhood” into a sort of career as the Official London Olympics Denouncer. The bottom line of all this agitated whining? They hate capitalism:

About 500 people critical of the economic impact and corporate flavor of the London Olympics marched Saturday near the Olympic Park, determined to send a message that Britain is not united in backing the games.
The protest march came hours after police arrested more than 130 bicyclists who had defied an order to avoid cycling in groups around the stadium during Friday night’s opening ceremony. . . .
Occupy London, part of a global movement that has waged demonstrations against financial institutions and capitalist policies, said some cyclists were members of the movement. They said police cordoned off more than 100 cyclists at one road junction near the stadium as Friday’s ceremony was beginning and held them there several hours.
Saturday’s protest, the largest so far against the games, drew a mix of left-wing and green activists who decry the Olympics as a corporate juggernaut rolling over residents and their civil rights.

The alleged violation of their “civil rights,” you see, justifies the protesters in disrupting traffic and attacking police. Hat-tip to Tom Lamb for this video which, according to the protesters, shows police brutality against a man in a wheelchair but looks to me more like a bunch of smelly Occupy scum assaulting a cop:


  • Beeblebrocs

    I wonder if any of their bikes were made by a corporation…

  • Soopermexican

    I can’t watch this crap.. I want to jump in and beat the hell out of those morons who attack police…

    Deploy the Vickers.

    Back in the day, cops carried riot sticks to deal with this crap.  Nothing like the sound of a stick against the head of a commie rioter when it catches the sweet spot:  THWAAAAAAAAAAACK!

    How, I wonder, do you organize non-corporate Olympics?  Perhaps it might work if you want pot-smoking Olympics, but even that will go corporate fast if marijuana is legalized.

  • Ben Franklin

    This is like a Monte Python skit.  The guy who grabbed the cop is saying “I didn’t touch you” at the end of the video.

  • K-Bob

    This is all a thinly disguised attempt to have “taking a dump on the flag” and “tent rape” included as Olympic sports.  Only then will they be appeased sufficiently to crawl back in their hive.

  • JayW

    Do these leftards understand the concept of irony?  They are protesting  an Olympics which is too corporate while inside the Stadium the people are watching a spectacle praising socialized medicine.

  • Adjoran

     Wow, man, like we could have drum circles and stuff!

  • McGehee

     Instead of a torch we could build this giant wicker man…

  • DaveO

    Considering these assclowns get most of their financing from those corporations who won Olympics contracts and are seeking to minimize the profits of their competitors who also won contracts – I don’t buy the victimhood.

    It’s like the OWS POS living in posh hotels while their hapless followers were chummed for the scum of NYC.

  • robertstacymccain

    Indeed. The very sight of these Occupy scum inspires normal people to think of automatic weapons fire as a justifiable response.

    I would prefer napalm, but a few thousand rounds of heavy machine gun fire would suffice.

  • PGlenn

    That’s one of the frightening things about the times in which we are living: the Watermelons pretend to be at war with the forces of progressive corporatism, while both elements continue to feed off eachother and metastasize.

    The London Olympics are exhibit #31,472 illustrating why “we” are actually the underdogs in this long struggle.

    I suddenly feel like listening to the Clash.  London Calling is a far better album than Sandinista.  

    Although, ironically, the Sex Pistols were rather conservative-libertarian in their views.  

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    I have heard that noise up close.  Fortunately not on my thick skull but close enough (as in the individual to my left) to get my attention to avoid it.  

  • DaveO

    EBL rocking the Casbah. Well, beat rocking the cash bar. LOL

    When they kick out your front door
    How you gonna come
    With your hands on your head
    Or on the trigger of your gun?

  • Quartermaster

    Less collateral damage. A 7.62mm mini-gun would get the job done toot sweet!

  • JeffS

     Britain is to the Vickers as America is to the 7.62mm mini-gun. 

    I concede that the mini-gun would be more efficient.  But the Vickers would be mean.

  • JeffS

     God gave us automatic weapons for a reason.
