Glenn Greenwald - What's Behind The Scorn For The Wall Street Protests?

White shirt NYPD officer above is none other than Anthony Bologna, the thug who maced innocent female protesters over the weekend.


Call NOW and demand that Bologna be charged:

Mayor Bloomberg: +1 (212) 639-9675 or +1 (212) 788-2958
Deputy Commissioner of Public Information: +1 (646) 610-6700
NYPD Switchboard: +1 (646) 610-5000
First precinct: +1 (212) 334-0611


Glenn Greenwald - Salon

It's unsurprising that establishment media outlets have been condescending, dismissive and scornful of the ongoing protests on Wall Street.  Any entity that declares itself an adversary of prevailing institutional power is going to be viewed with hostility by establishment-serving institutions and their loyalists.  That's just the nature of protests that take place outside approved channels, an inevitable by-product of disruptive dissent: those who are most vested in safeguarding and legitimizing establishment prerogatives (which, by definition, includes establishment media outlets) are going to be hostile to those challenges.  As the virtually universal disdain in these same circles for WikiLeaks (and, before that, for the Iraq War protests) demonstrated: the more effectively adversarial it is, the more establishment hostility it's going to provoke. 

Nor is it surprising that much of the most vocal criticisms of the Wall Street protests has come from some self-identified progressives, who one might think would be instinctively sympathetic to the substantive message of the protesters.  In an excellent analysis entitled "Why Establishment Media & the Power Elite Loathe Occupy Wall Street," Kevin Gosztola chronicles how many of the most scornful criticisms have come from Democratic partisans who -- like the politicians to whom they devote their fealty -- feign populist opposition to Wall Street for political gain.

odd to see your site sympathizing with these Wall Street whiners, while your site has WALL STREET types in your PARTNER CENTER...

I believe one can get their attention by calling the Chamber of Commerce & let them know that one will not spend any money in NY CITY or NY STATE. When businesses start to lose revenue there might be a change. The rest of the country holds the power.

@David G. Mills "sympathizing"

While you are sitting at the keyboard could someone spray you in the face with MACE? I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem.

How to fight back:

1. Buy some of the Worlds HOTTEST PEPPER! Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) powder off Ebay.
2. Mix 1 cup of powder with 6 cups of hot water and let stand for 24 hours
3. Strain through coffee filter
4. Pour liquid into a "Super Soaker" water pistol and fight back.

Bhut Jolokia chili pepper (Ghost Pepper)
Ghost Pepper: is the world's hottest chili pepper on earth!
Its 300x hotter than a jalapeno.
In February 2007, Guinness World Records certified the Jolokia as the world's hottest chili pepper.They are known as BHUT JOLOKIA, NAGA JOLOKIA, BIH JOLOKIA, AND GHOST PEPPER OR JUST NAGAS.

The pepper is used as a spice in food or eaten alone. One seed from a Jolokia can sustain intense pain sensations in the mouth for up to 30 minutes before subsiding. Extreme care should be taken when ingesting the pepper and its seeds, so as to not get it in the eyes. It is used as a cure for stomach ailments. It is also used as a remedy to summer heat, presumably by inducing perspiration. In northeastern India the peppers are smeared on fences or used in smoke bombs as a safety precaution to keep wild elephants at a distance. The Jolokia is more than 3 times hotter than the feared Habenaro pepper. So enjoy these peppers with extreme caution. In Stock Date 2/11/08. Over ONE MILLION scoville units puts this pepper 3 1/2 times hotter than the Habanero pepper THE HOTTEST KNOWN PEPPER IN THE UNIVERSE !!

One of those "Wall Street whiners" was federal Judge Rakoff in the Southern District of New York. For an adumbration of the scum that is Wall Street, read his opinion in S.E.C. v. Bank of America, wherein he BLASTS the S.E.C. for its collusive attempt to sweep fraud by banking executives under the rug--and make the victims of the fraud pay for the malfeasance in the bargain:

http://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=14424144582837922601&q=rakoff+bank+america+s.e.c.&hl=en&as_sdt=2,14 ("the parties were proposing that the management of Bank of America—having allegedly hidden from the Bank's shareholders that as much as $5.8 billion of their money would be given as bonuses to the executives of Merrill who had run that company nearly into bankruptcy—would now settle the legal consequences of their lying by paying the S.E.C. $33 million more of their shareholders' money.")

Eventually the S.E.C. and BAC were able to duck Judge Rakoff and get a dismissal. Well, guess what. BAC shareholders aren't done with management for its corruptly inept handling of the bank's merger with Merrill:


It couldn't happen to a bigger collection of nozzles.

Carry your own mace. If you are illegally sprayed by a cop, spray him back. When you are arrested for assaulting a police officer, tell them you had the legal right to defend yourself against an unlawful use of pepper spray. No one is supposed to be above the law. Just make sure that the people who are near you are also not being violent, otherwise the cop will say the mace was meant for them and not you. Also make sure you are being recorded on video. That is your only defense against a lying officer. Be prepared to still face jail time though, because we are NOT a nation of laws, we are a nation of men who selectively enforce the laws. And unfortunately most of the men who are enforcing the laws right now are corrupt to the core.

To the people who work in the corporate media, be aware. If the cops can pepper spray people illegally and get away with it, then what's to stop them from using their guns to get away with murder? And then, what's to stop them from forming death squads like they have in Brazil? Is that the kind of country you want your families to live in? Our government is forcing us down a road to tyranny, and unless enough people oppose them, we will have tyranny.

When I said that most of the men who are enforcing the laws are corrupt to the core, I was referring to the prosecuting attorneys and judges, not the police officers. While most are not corrupt, they also don't care about their freedom either, just like the general population.

Ernest, Almost all, if not all cops are corrupt scumbags. Otherwise, they wouldn't be cops.

They need to be careful. The girl in the pic. looks like she is about to kick the 3 cops asses.

Bologna has the look of a sadist.

Could this guy's surname be any more ironic?

Also, the girl in the first picture looks like the one interviewed on RT - perhaps there was the motive for the attack.

if officer Bologna is doing his spraying according to the guidelines of police policy, why then every time we see him in action he is sneaking up like a coward, spraying and running away like the coward he is. why does he not do it openly if it is correct police procedure?

You know what they are waiting for. Lets hope they dont do it. With it in 3 towns right now the "Wizzered of O Bama Oz" would call it for all 57 states..........!

That 80% (which personally I'd put at closer to 95%) is melting fast.I'm telling you, I walk by the protesters in Chicago multiple times a day. And I'm in the working crowd that's supposed to ignore them. It's a way different vibe this time. Normally your day workers like me are politely hostile to protesters.

Not now. You can feel it, the electric energy that wants to hop the fence.

Rules of engagement apply to all police officers. Use of force continuum is a method to control a situation where someone will not comply with direct orders from a police officer. Assemble and protest peacefully without disrupting the normal course of business. Get out of the streets and let the rest of the world get on with their lives.

Umm. They are doing just as you ask. They are blocked from protesting on Wall Street. I believe they are in Liberty Park nearby. Now, when the unions join in, and the numbers grow, that might be another story.
