Occupy Oakland Takes on Gay Pride Festival

Of all the various Occupier groups around the country, Occupy Oakland has emerged as the champion when it comes to insane destructive behavior. Occupy Wall Street may be picking a fight with a formerly supportive liberal church, but it still doesn’t hold a candle to Occupy Oakland, the drunken idiot of the Occupation, forever picking insane fights with increasingly little justification.

This time Occupy Oakland or one of its insane splinter groups decided to stage a gay riot because a gay pride festival was charging for admission. This is the behavior of teenagers who want to get into an event for free and throw a tantrum when they’re told to pay admission. This is how pathetic the Occupy movement that Iran hopes will overthrow America has become.

An offshoot of Occupy Oakland, upset that the city’s Pride Festival was charging for admission, went on a vandalism spree Sunday, breaking windows at a Bank of America branch and tagging buildings and a police vehicle with anarchist graffiti, police said. About 50 to 60 marchers, several of whom covered their faces with pink bandannas, amassed at Snow Park at 5:30 p.m. and tried unsuccessfully to crash the gate at the Pride Festival, which was taking place in Oakland’s Uptown District.

The Sears at Broadway and 20th Street was tagged with red spray paint that read “Destroy Capitalism” and “Queer Riots Now.” A vacant building on the corner of 19th and Broadway was tagged with “Queer Revolt.”

I don’t know the details of the Pride Festival’s finances, but I’m guessing it’s probably not a major capitalist project. Occupy Oakland can make its own gay pride festival, but with their track record, it would probably end with a body count and trashed buildings.

Less than a block down on Broadway, the Community Bank of the Bay was tagged with an anarchy symbol and the words, “Queers: Burn Banks.”

Apparently not. They just spray paint graffiti on them and run away.

    Almost all Pride events these days are major capitalists projects. So much love and support to these comrades in Oakland. <3

      Which comrades? Are you referring to the ones that did not want to pay admission? Have you considered the price charged to events for security, permits to close streets, sanitation, and so on? Oakland Pride was following the rules of society, and not trying to get something for nothing. Events cost money. Both attendees, vendors, and the organization putting the event on had to pay, and rightfully so! There is not a free lunch!

        All the criminal queers scare you so much. There is a free lunch, and we're taking it. We want everything and won't settle for less.

    Occupy is nothing more than infantile rage, vandalism, stupidity and meaningless lemming like marches . Occupy is made up of drop outs, derelicts and losers.

    • Omar

      You're exactly right. The violent, anti-American, anti-democracy Occupy movement is nothing like the patriotic Tea Party, which cares about the well-being of America.

    • Summerspeaker

      Agreed. And we're coming for you and your property. Don't worry, they'll be enough for everyone. But you won't get to control or exclude us anymore. This is queer revolution.

    Marx said that when the final stage of Communism came, the state would wither away since, without economic differences, all people would be the same–presumably even as far as sexual desires were concerned. Communist countries have traditionally persecuted homosexuals. Today China has reversed itself, since the one-child policy has led to a 6-5 ratio of young men to young women. China hopes that if gay men act out their desires, that will alleviate the problems caused by the disproportionate numbers. But what about the poor lesbians?

    I'll buy them all bus tickets to the Charlotte DNC. Then tell them DNC charges admission. After making sure their surrounded by cops in a 3-1 ratio, of course.

    Occupy is a symptom of the infantile entitlement expectations in our society…gimme gimme gimme is the motto.

    • Omar

      Occupy protesters behave like spoiled brats.

    • Summerspeaker

      We want everything, and we're taking it.

  • Lan Astaslem

    why do they call themselves gay when most are so miserable?

    • stevefraser

      It's like calling a fat guy "tiny".

    • Summerspeaker

      We're not gay, we're queer.

    Well, Oakland doesn't have any white people. So Occupy is probably the few white people you see in Oakland. Some Blacks have left and a lot of illegal Hispanics and legal/illegal Asians have moved in. Oakland even march for the police protest in Anaheim, one minority city to another.

    • stevefraser

      Yep, 'cept a lot of white dikes live in the hills off of Hiway 13.

    Finally Occupy Oakland does something most people can get behind….Or is is a hate crime because homosexuals in California are a legally special and protected group (as long as they keep voting DEM).

    • Summerspeaker

      I would love to see them try to target radical queers with an anti-homosexual hate crime.

    Riots and protests are a way of life with these people. They are keenly disappointed when their grievances are settled. "Ya know, for me the action is the juice". My guess is that had they written anything disparaging against homosexuals with their tagging, arrests would have been made.

    The Occupy movement is the worst thing that happened to this country since 9/11.

      Your nightmares are my dreams.
