Zombie Pictorial: Is #OccupyOakland as bad as they say?

This protester had the answer: Behead all the evil capitalists.

Photojournalist, Zombie asked the question,”is #OccupyOakland as bad as they say?” And went about answering it in pictures:

Much ado has been made about recent media reports describing Occupy Oakland as a cross between Lord of the Flies and Animal House. The leftist magazine Mother Jones was furious about the negative coverage, deeming it “The Right-Wing Media Assault on Occupy Oakland,” and attempting to debunk the bad press. But Big Journalism lashed back with an article entitled MotherJones: Truth To Unflattering Reports On OWS.

Out of curiosity, I decided to check out the scene for myself to settle the matter.

The main problem when communists and anarchists get together in the same revolution is that the communists are by nature so much more organized. As a result, they’re usually more visible, and the reporters (at least the ones not trying to paper over the whole thing) assume that the communists are dominant. The same is true at Occupy Oakland — the signage was about 50% communist/socialist, 25% anarchist/anti-authoritarian, and 25% incoherent/confused/personal. A casual observer would conclude that the protest was predominantly communist. But I suspect the anarchists and the crazies outnumber the actual communists, but they’re just not as good at advertising themselves.

This is the reason why Oakland is in such trouble: The city has a terrible crime problem, but seemingly half the residents see the police, and not the criminals, as the problem. Any attempts to increase patrols or hire more officers are met with fierce resistance.

Read the full report at PJ Media for more pictures of filth, open drug use, menacing internal security teams, their bizarre obsession with group identity, and self segregation, etc, all with a stated goal of bringing down capitalism. All pictures taken by Zombie.

Yes, it’s every bit as bad as “they say”. Don’t believe the lies that it’s a case of a few errant signs making the whole group look bad. Perhaps #OccupyOakland is one of the more extreme groups, (50% communist/socialist, 25% anarchist/anti-authoritarian, and 25% incoherent/confused/personal as Zombie noted), but other Occupations have similar assortments of radicals with similar anti-capitalist goals.

    You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually something which I feel I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely vast for me. I am looking ahead for your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the cling of it!
