There is a danger,” the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek warned the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park last year, and he wasn’t referring to the New York Police Department. “Don’t fall in love with yourselves. We have a nice time here. But remember, carnivals come cheap. What matters is the day after, when we will have to return to normal lives. Will there be any changes then?
Vous vous êtes engagés à la non-violence. Vous avez refusé de donner aux médias ces images de fenêtres cassées ou de batailles de rue qu’ils attendent si désespérément. Et cette prodigieuse discipline signifie que, toujours, l’histoire retiendra la brutalité policière scandaleuse et injustifiée. Une brutalité que nous n’avons pas seulement vu la nuit dernière. Pendant ce temps, le soutien au mouvement grandit de plus en plus. Plus de sagesse.

Those protesting in New York have been circulating a list of grievances, most of which are aimed at corporations that they say are too powerful and often unethical. Among the complaints: bank executives received “exorbitant” bonuses not long after receiving taxpayer bailouts and companies have “poisoned the food supply through negligence” and “continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate better pay and safer working conditions.”

La police de New-York a fait mieux en cinq heures », dénonce les animateurs du mouvement sur Twitter.

Ces arrestations massives interviennent alors que la banque JPMorgan a fait un don de 4,6 millions à la Fondation de la police new-yorkaise. Ce don sans précédent devant permettre à la NYPD de « renforcer la sécurité » dans la ville, selon le communiqué de la banque, et d’équiper 1 000 voitures de patrouille en ordinateurs portables.

"To change one’s mind when presented with evidence that contradicts one’s mind, is to be scientific, logical and rational. The CIA fucked up. No-one got fired. Condi Rice lied to the commission. Bush and Cheney would not testify under oath. No-one wants to take the blame for the incompetence that killed over 3,000 people."

This is a good time for some background information on Pamela Geller’s associate David Yerushalmi, who is an advocate for criminalizing Islam itself and imposing 20-year sentences on practicing Muslims. Yes, really.

He’s not simply anti-Muslim, though; Yerushalmi also wrote a now-infamous article titled “On Race: A Tentative Discussion, Part II,” in which he advocated a return to a pre-Bill of Rights Constitution, and the restriction of voting rights to white male land-owners. Again … yes, really.
