Left-wing organizers are well aware of the symbolic value of confrontations with the authorities. One male student can be heard saying in the video from the Santa Monica campus, “We won! We won! They pepper sprayed us!”
The pepper spraying of Santa Monica students came months after police sprayed the same crowd control chemical on Occupy Wall Street demonstrators at the University of California at Davis in November. The Occupy movement promptly began using images from the confrontation as propaganda, ignoring protesters’ provocative behavior and falsely claiming police brutality.
In reality it is the demonstrators who tend to use brutal tactics.
Occupy Wall Street, and the satellite protests it has spawned in cities across the U.S. and around the world have been spectacularly violent. Radical activists are responsible for hundreds of crimes, including assault, gang rape, arson, rioting, robbery, and a host of others.
The anti-American activists of the Occupy Wall Street movement announced earlier this year that they plan to violently disrupt the G8/NATO summit in Chicago on May 19.
Adbusters, the radical magazine that spearheaded the Occupy movement, claims its supporters will conduct a massive occupation of Chicago “in the tradition of the Chicago 8.”
When the nations of the G8 and NATO begin meeting May 19, the movement plans to press its demands. Occupiers want an economy-killing “Robin Hood Tax” to be imposed on financial transactions, an international agreement to curb carbon emissions, and “a nuclear-free Middle East” (translation: the unilateral nuclear disarmament of Israel), according to Adbusters.
