OWS! Flea Party Protesters Descend on Wall St.
Dozens arrested in Wall Street as police clash with thousands of protesters trying to paralyse Manhattan in ‘day of action’
New York is today facing major disruption as tens of thousands of protesters are expected to flood into Manhattan to support Occupy Wall Street as the movement celebrates its two-month anniversary.
Protesters began amassing in lower Manhattan this morning to begin a ‘day of action’ in which they are expected to try to paralyse New York’s subway system. Sixty of them have already been arrested.
Riot police arrested protesters who sat on the ground and blocked traffic into the financial district on Thursday, hauling several protesters to their feet and handcuffing them one block from Wall Street.
‘All day, all week, shut down Wall Street!’ the crowd chanted. After several arrests, most of the protesters retreated down the street. A line of riot police followed them. ‘You do not have a parade permit! You are blocking the street!’ a police officer told protesters through a loudspeaker. The congestion brought taxis and delivery trucks to a halt. source – Daily Mail UK

NTEB has seen a leaked memo from a high-ranking Chick-Fil-A source outlining that the LGBT Chick-Fil-A protesters and OWS in some states are planning on “hijacking” the dining rooms and drive-thru lanes of the restaurants and staging a “sit-in” on August 1 instead of their planned “same sex kiss-a-thon” on Friday August 3rd.

Occupy May Day protests began early last night with a roving band of “anarchists” smashing car windows and store fronts in San Francisco’s Mission District. The mini-riot may have started as a “ruckus street party” organized by Occupy Oakland protesters who invaded their sister city last night, but whoever was responsible appeared to show little regard for the property of either the 1% or the other 99.

Occupy groups across the U.S. have protested economic disparity, decrying high foreclosure and unemployment rates that hurt average Americans while bankers and financial executives received bonuses and taxpayer-funded bailouts. In the past six months, similar groups, using social media and other tools, have sprung up in Europe, Asia and Latin America.

A paradigm shift has occured in America. Seemingly overnight, Eurpoean-style street riots and aggressive anarchy have become part of everyday life. While a jobless ‘recovery’ slithers its way across the landscape, cracks have begun to appear in the once-invulnerable. Might of America. We have become an entitlement society. This is the “change” you shed tears of joy for. This is the worst generation..This is the end of America.
