As chronicled here
over the past few weeks
, the LA Times
continues to hype the Occupy Rose Parade miscreants and its disgraced leader, convicted thief
and wanna-be one-percenter, Peter Thottam. Another fluff piece appeared in its blog, describing the human powered “float” the Occupy Rose Parade bunch intend to shove in Americans’s living rooms at the end of the televised 123rd Rose Parade. The “float” consists of numerous plastic bags strung together and dubbed a corporate “octopus of greed.”

The AP's single close-up photo
used by the LA Times
shows a paltry seven "Occupiers." Contrast this to the many thousands of volunteers who have worked for months preparing floats and practicing with marching bands for the Rose Parade.
Let’s get this straight: The century old Rose Parade uses gazillions of living fresh natural flowers and all natural organic green materials to decorate floats built by thousands of volunteers, many of them children, and is paid for by voluntary private donations. To protest this supposedly evil symbol of corporate greed, the Occupods have rigged up a 70 by 40 foot “octopus” puppet made of plastic bags and manipulated by just a handful of puppet masters. Just think of George Soros with eight tentacles.
In short, the true Rose Parade volunteers hope to evoke happiness and joy among viewers, while the Occupy frauds hope to evoke class hatred and envy.
So really when it gets right down to it, the Occupy plastic bag octopus "float" more aptly represents the monstrous tentacles of government oppression of private enterprise and individual freedom. Happy Occupied New Year.
