Lefties Agitating For Main Street Destroying Main Street

I’m not sure who green-lighted this kind of information over at the Huffington Post

As the Occupy Wall Street protests lurch into their third week, the movement appears to be gaining steam. What began in New York’s Zuccotti Park has spread to cities across the country, and has become emboldened by well-publicized arrests and celebrity supporters. But the group that says it’s fighting against banks and corporations on behalf of the “99 percent” of America’s “have-nots” may have caught Main Street in the crossfire — with their continued presence causing big headaches for nearby small businesses.

“Usually, there are hundreds and hundreds of people in this area,” said Stacey Tzortzatos, owner of Panini & Co. Breads, which sits adjacent to Zuccotti Park. “People do not want to have to pass through the crowd or walk through the park to come to my business — so they go elsewhere.”

Dude, you have to just make allowances. The agitators are just trying to ……. well, something.

For Tzortzatos, the “occupation” has resulted not just in a loss in business. “I’ve had a lot of damage from the protesters,” she said. “I’ve had to put a $200 lock on my bathroom because they come in here and try to bathe. The sink fell down to the ground, cracked open, pulled the plumbing out of the wall and caused a flood. It’s a no-win situation. If I open the restroom for one, 30 people line up outside, disrupting my business.”

A manager at the nearby Essex World Cafe — who asked to remain anonymous — shared similar complaints. Referring to three young men waiting at the end of the counter, he explained, “They want to use the toilet, the phones, we give them free water and free ice. They sit here and don’t buy anything, but they recharge their phone batteries with our plugs, and I tell them, ‘Hey, if you guys are going to come, I need to do some business here. We are suffering, too!’ And then they start with their own words, going against you.” The three young men eventually left the cafe, each carrying large containers the staff had filled with hot and cold water for them.

This manager also cited damages, including graffiti on his restroom walls. “For eight and a half years, there was nothing on those walls,” he said. “Now it says ‘Viva la Revolucion’ everywhere. Yes, ‘Viva la Revolucion,’ but don’t write it on my toilet. I let you use my facilities without being a customer and this is what I get?”

Well, yeah. It’s not about you, Mr. Manager who is a dupe for the Big Corporations linked to Wall Street and …. OK, I ran out of Liberal Speak.

At Zuccotti Park, just south of the World Trade Center site, hundreds have set up camp and show few signs of dispersing. The ground is littered with cardboard signs, awaiting new revolutionaries to pick them up and join the movement.

I’m shocked! A liberal protest which is filthy and damages the environment? Has this ever happened before?

    Someone should be documenting the cases of vandalism. It makes foe a very good contrast with the Tea Party behavior.

    Let these scum into your business and you can kiss your business goodbye.

    The social media of Facebook and twitter and blogs along with a MSM that is way left and hollywood which is CHE left is leading this nation down a path that might very well see civil war in the coming years.

    The internet is the “666” and its going to ultimately be destroyed or it will destroy civilization.

    I guarantee it.

    Word.. learn to love destruction because it is coming.

    These anarchists and Communists have teamed up to do nothing but destroy. They want a revolution at all costs. One group wants one to enact their failed dream of a socialist utopia. Another wants to enact a failed dream of anarchy lead by a single leader (hello? totalitarianism? Thugocracy?)

    Heard story that the owners of these places these lovely kiddos are camped out in can’t get them kicked out. Wonder why?

    Course, I wonder why these business owners don’t kick the bums out of their businesses.

    Seems awfully strange that for a group that hates capitalism, they sure depend on it alot. Wonder how many of them utilize their Apple iphones to contact their friends using social media over the internet (isp), then drive over to these places? How helpful to the environment is it to destroy a park by throwing hundreds of nasty lazy commies on the grounds?

    Heard another radio interview. A Professor who was participating, said that they were there for a revolution, but they don’t know what for yet.

    Unfortunately, some sort of war is coming. I just pray that I am not here at the time. I pray that I have been on the right path and the lord sees fit to remove me before he lets all hell break lose here on Earth. And the way things are working out here……. I hear a clock ticking down….

    There single most common demand is free college.

  7. Trish says:

    Yes, suddenly, now that they have finished 4 or 5 years of college and have to begin paying their loans back, they want free tuition. Not that they gave a flying leap before, when they were partying and hanging with their school friends. Not that they cared one whit while in school, and tried to get ahead of the game via JOBS in the summers and weekends.
    Not that Mommy and Daddy hadn’t warned them to buckle down. Well, at least in some cases they did. In other cases, they probably explained to their spoiled rotten kids that in an Obama world, you won’t have to pay back your loans, you can stiff the government and by virtue, every single tax payer in the land. This OWS is just another big shot at class warfare, and indoctrination of our youth. Th emore who get charged up for it the better. He had to wake them up again, or he will lose. Now if we can lull them back to sleep it would be good.

    Meh, I think he needs to prop them up more. More protests. More arrests. More violence. Shows the “independents” and “moderate” who the left really are. Shows them what voting for DEMOCRAPS really gets them.

    Is this how you want your future to look? Is this how you want your kids to grow up? If not, then vote Conservative and save our union.

    We can sure hope that that is the result, but I feel a civil war a coming. I believe that there are adults who aren’t paying attention to what’s happening out there, as well as way too many commie/socialist/marxist types left over from the 60’s running orgs like Move-on and it’s offshoots and too many worthless spoiled “kids” who like what they hear from the aging hippies and feel entitled to handouts and hatred for the rich. It scares me; I would never accept that attitude from my own kids, I believe I brought them up far better than that, even though I was a sort of hippie back in the day. Oddly, I registered republican at 18 and always voted R, if the candidate deserved it. It always drove my lib brother CRAZY!(he was the only liberal among 6 of us, but we were closest in age)
    We will be tough to beat though, of that I am certain!
