Villaraigosa to Occupy L.A.: ‘You’re Wonderful. Now Get Lost, Ya Bums.’

Posted on | November 26, 2011 | 6 Comments

Praising them in preparation for shutting them down:

Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa announced on Friday that City Hall Park would be closed at 12:01 a.m. on Monday. Those who refuse to leave may face arrest.
“The movement has awakened the country’s conscience. It has given voice to those who have not been heard,” the mayor said. “I am proud of the fact that this has been a peaceful, nonviolent protest. It has been peaceful because we decided to do things differently in Los Angeles, not stare each other down across barricades and barbed wire.”
The impending end of Occupy L.A.’s stay outside City Hall — one of the last of the movement’s major encampments — may signal the end of a phase of the protests that has been characterized by large camps in parks and public spaces.

Via Memeorandum.

    They could have gotten them to leave two month’s ago. All they had to do was tell them that “Globull Warming” had awakened an ancient volcano and it was about to erupt.

    “Given voice to those who have not been heard?” What was the Tea Party? Evidently they weren’t the right people who had not been heard.

    If by “it” you mean a bad smell outside of the polling stations that scares the crap out of soccer moms inclined to vote “R,” you are indeed correct, sir 🙂
