Scott Olsen is the ex-Marine and Iraq War veteran who was injured in the riot instigated by Occupy Oakland on Oct. 25. The Occupy Wall Street movement and its institutional patrons are using the incident to rally support, declaring: “We Are Scott Olsen!”
Scott Olsen apparently founded a website devoted to attacking the U.S. Marine Corps (via Verum Serum):
It has been widely reported that Olsen is a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War. But apparently his opposition to the U.S. military and the Marine Corps in which he served runs a little deeper.
The site is no longer live, but Olsen was the founder of IHateTheMarineCorps.com, a private user forum apparently dedicated to bashing the Marine Corps…
Verum Serum’s post also points to evidence that Olsen may have been investigated by the Marines for alleged cocaine use. His Flickr account suggests an apparent enthusiasm for marijuana:
Finally, Scott Olsen seems to dislike Jews–“Hebrews,” in his terms (via Gateway Pundit, quoting an apparent online posting by Olsen):
To criticize the Turks for defending their national border and cheer on the Hebrews for expanding theirs on the land of the other indigenous people you forgot to mention. The only distinctions the Kurds have, they share with many other indigenous people is that they did not show up by boatloads to occupy and settle someone else s land and by contrast majority of Hebrews do not even live in the said Hebrew mother land and are perfectly happy where ever it is they call home.
Anti-military, anti-Israel, antisemitic–pro-drugs. Apparently.
“We Are All Scott Olsen.”
You said it…
