What these “occupy” activists do not understand about Occupy supporting no candidates or political parties is completely beyond me, but I am beginning to think these types of people are simply people who have run out of ideas – yet their self-esteem is so fragile their egos won’t allow them to just listen and maybe even “follow” for a little while. Perhaps they believe that since they have labeled their party as “populist” it’s okay to go ahead and use the Occupy name and speak for all the other occupiers out there around the world?
And what the fuck is up with the OccupyWallStNYC Twitter? Who died and made them King & Queen of the prom? You would think they would know better? Which they most very likely do, which means they decided that they know what is best for everyone and decided they had a right to speak for everyone – cuz they’re just so goddamn fucking special.
(Our annoyance with yet another random group of assholes using the Occupy name to push yet another decidedly un-Occupy PR campaign will have to sit and stew for a while.)
Low and behold – this new political party, with the zippy name of After Party USA, falls neatly in line with the same kind of empty threat, hollow buzzword campaign we have seen being pushed upon everyone by disciples of the Einstein Institute and the reformists that made up the Freedom Plaza camp of Occupy Washington DC. In other words, the Democratic Party and the unions.
This new party also falls neatly in line with a disturbing trend seen at actions from coast to coast… Activists who can’t wait to leave the action for the after action after party. In other words, people who come out so they can go to a party and get free booze and weed. A new form of paid “activists”. Waiting around for actual change is just not satisfying enough for these ADHD activist – nope they’ve got to get their rocks off now. Plus, only the cool activists are invited to the after party, so if you’re going… You MUST be cool, right? I say fuck them and fuck #AfterPartyUSA
In the streets and in your daily life – it’s good to Know Your Rights – “expect them to be violated”. We will be uploading our past Know Your Rights segments soon. In the meantime, you can hear a few of our past Know Your Rights segments on soundcloud at: https://soundcloud.com/pruradio
Hear where it all began. Our first show was live on www.woodyradio.com. Speaking and engineering live was quite a challenge and it shows! Listen to our first show – warts and all.
As contributors to Occupy media teams we knew there was not only a need, but a real hunger for accurate news and information. Our main question was what could we bring that wasn’t already out there?
As you can see – we are still working on our site and trying to get the hang of WordPress. We hope to have both the site and our show up and running like a well-tuned machine soon.
Some areas are working just fine, so please feel free to click around, leave comments, etc.
Thank you for your patience.
