Occupy Vancouver, Part Deux

I sort of figured turnout was going to be much smaller when I arrived just before the start time at noon and easily found a parking space close to Esther Short Park.

Speaking with the Columbian’s writer Eric Florip after the rally took to their march, he expressed doubt that even the Columbian would cover this one.

UPDATE: It appears Eric guessed wrong Occupy Vancouver rally collects donations for food bank

Of course the Columbian will paint the movement in every good light they can muster. I do applaud them for conducting a food drive now, but what about all of the other groups around town that do it all years long and never make mention in the Columbian? This is hardly the first or only time food is collected for food banks in town.

Injured "Ex-Marine" Founder of IHateTheMarines.com

The left’s spin of Scott Olsen, purported to be a two-time Iraq veteran who received a fractured skull in the Occupy Oakland riot, is typical of that ilk. It is unknown just what hit Olsen or where it came from, but is presumed to have been a Police Projectile.

As soon as he was seen injured, in typical fashion, the protesters leaped at a chance to now embrace one they would just as soon spit on, portraying him as a typical Marine, accusing the Police of targeting a Marine, blah, blah, blah, to quote Mayor Tim Leavitt.

While it is tragic that the 24 year-old has been injured, it should also be known that he was and is not your typical Marine Veteran.It turns out that Scott is the founder of a now defunct website, see here

A comment left on his facebook page here by a Jerry Dumas claims,

“In 2010, the Marines issued Olsen an “administrative discharge.” Maj. Shawn Haney, a Marines spokesman based in Quantico, Va., declined to discuss Olsen’s discharge, but said his departure could have been for anything from a medical condition to a punitive measure.
Im guessing the latter and not the former.
Anything less than an Honorable Discharge is a disgrace to the uniform.”

Additionally, the claims of brutality by Police at this “non-violent” protest falls apart as MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell ended yup embarrassed on the air by a protesters admission that they were in fact throwing rocks and bottles at Police.

The left’s claims of this being a struggle for freedom or improving the lot of people in America is as bogus as can be. This is obviously just what we have claimed it is all along, a move by anarchists and socialists to being about the collapse of America.

And, they have no problem using any and every thing as propaganda to accomplish that, including dishonoring the US Marine Corps.

#Hoodstock: Poop, There It Is! Occupy Portland Poop Bucket Poured on Court House

The City of Portland thinks open poop buckets are wonderful at Occupy Portland, but when they throw the containers of poop at the Court House, well, that’s not kosher. They call THAT “Bio Vandalism,” 

At approximately 942pm last night October 27, 2011, a masked individual walked by the 4th street entrance doors of the Multnomah County Courthouse located at 1021 SW 4th Ave and threw a urine and feces filled container at the entrance doors of the historic courthouse. A Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office Facility Security Officer discovered the bio-vandalism as he was preparing the building to be opened to the public. Attached is a photo of the suspect taken from a surveillance camera at the Courthouse. Also attached is a photo of the area the container was thrown at and the result. Anyone having information on this incident is asked to please contact the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 503-261-2847.

Vancouver Schools Approve of Cross-Dressing Teacher

News in just about every media outlet, except Vancouver’s Columbian, a male substitute teacher in the Evergreen School District has shown up to teach 19 times wearing women’s clothes. The District has informed concerned parents that they have no problem with him, so long as he follows dress code of not wearing anything to short of low-cut.

Children who laughed or made jokes were pulled out of class.

UPDATE: The Columbain finally posted on this here

UPDATE: Law protects cross-dressing teacher. He is a mamber of a “protected classification”

Mayor Leavitt gets Testy

My opposition to C-Trans’ Proposition 1 is well known in town to any who read the Columbian or my blog. I have never hidden the fact from anyone. I frequently express that opposition in comments at the Columbian and elsewhere.
But, I was surprised to see the following reply left today on a comment I made weeks ago from Vancouver’s Mayor, Tim Leavitt.

Is that the best argument the Mayor can muster to promote a measure, telling a citizen “blah, blah, blah” and to “give it a rest?”
