The Three Principles of the Occupy Wall Street Protesters


1) We will occupy and use your property in any way we see fit, and to hell with your rules.

“Basic rules intended to keep the park safe, open, clean, and welcoming to all visitors are clearly posted,” the statement from Brookfield (owners of Zuccotti Park) reads. “These rules includes bans on the erection of tents or other structures, as well as the placement of tarps, sleeping bags, or other coverings on the property.

“Unfortunately, many of the individuals currently occupying the grounds are ignoring these basic yet necessary requirements, which interferes with the use of the park by others.”

2) We will be happy to live in filth until you come clean up after us.

Brookfield Office properties, the firm that owns the central location for the Occupy Wall Street protests, has released a statement claiming that they have not been able to properly maintain the park and that sanitation has become a growing concern.

“Because many of the protestors refuse to cooperate by adhering to the [park] rules, the park has not been cleaned since Friday, September 16th, and as a result, sanitary conditions have reached unacceptable levels,” said in a written statement by the property management firm.

3) We are so self-absorbed, money that could be put to use for the benefit of the community should be used on us.

“In addition to the growing mess at the park, The NYPD has spent over $2 million in overtime to keep cops stationed at the protests, according to a public statement by Commissioner Ray Kelly made yesterday afternoon.”

From an article on, which wraps everything you need to know about Occupy Wall Street into one nice, tidy little package.

Jack, look at this article I found today: #OWS Park and your money. I don’t think this is getting nearly enough play on our side of the intertubes. There’s no way it’s a coincidence that this company opened their park to the public a week before they pulled in $135 million in tax money bribery. An especially unlikely coincidence: The company is lobbied by Joe Biden’s son’s law firm, which has Bloomberg’s squeeze on the Board of Directors. There are nowhere near enough degrees of separation for me to believe this is anything other than another dirty democrat scandal. For… Read more »
