Danny Cline: Occupy Wall Street Thug, Raving Anti-Semite

Lotion Man is in the house! 

If you enjoyed Danny Cline, the “Local 1 plumber's…helper” who stole Reason TV's recent report from Occupy Wall Street, you’ll love Cline’s Jew-bashing rant from earlier this week. 

Here’s Cline chasing away a nebbishy college boy and declaring himself “Information Man” at about the 1:55 mark in Reason’s video: 

 

And here’s Cline from a recent NRO video, exposing the real power behind Wall Street, the media, the 9/11 attacks and secular circumcision to a hapless interlocutor in a yarmulke: 

 

Like Krusty the Klown, another self-hating Jew dismayed to find he was actually just an anti-Semite, Cline claims to be a member of the tribe. So it’s encouraging to learn that Lotion/Information Man is catholic in his antipathy to both ethnic minorities and capitalism. In this self-promo video, the budding entrepreneur tries out for a Red Bull sponsorship on the strength of his ability to say “nigger nigger nigger nigger” again and again: 

 

It’s inevitable that the dipshit left will rush to point out that Cline is in no way representative of the good jobless layabouts who are turning out in their dozens to occupy America’s great and small cities. Right on time, here’s Gawker, with its allegedly witty use of strategically placed exclamation points, ridiculing the notion that the Lotion Man is in any way representative of people who have nothing better to do with their weekdays than camp out in parks. 

I actually agree with Gawker. This vaguely effeminate psycho represents only himself. But having listened to three years of palaver about how the Tea Party is composed of nothing but bible-thumping racists who want to strafe Mexican babies, I will not miss this chance to give the response that’s been working for me since I was in grade school and the Soviet Union was still in power: Fuck you, commie.

    Anti-commies like Cavanaugh draw on the same source as the commies--they pull their vile ideologies out of their fat asses. Fuck you, Cavanaugh.

    You first.

    No, they drool on them.

  • spencer||

    Pinko-stinko commie bastard- that's the preferred term.

  • A Serious Man||

    Two things: one, some person in the comments sections said that it's a strawman argunment because the 99% aren't against technology or entreprenurialship. Instead, they're against "the confiscation of wealth by the Wall St criminals."

    The stupidity is just too much. What the frak do you think cheap consumer goods are? A form of WEALTH that the corporations have made availible for everyone!

    Secondly, I think if I go to an Occupy rall I'll carry a sign that says "UNIONS ARE CORPORATIONS". Just to see what kind of reaction I get.

  • A Serious Man||

    What the hell? That was intended for below where someone linked an article about a mocking picture of the OWS protests.

  • Not an Economist||

    Threaded comments are just the way the corparatist loving Reason comment squirrels are extending their domination of Hit & Run commentors.

  • Koch Loving Squirrel||

    BINGO.

  • Yep||

    Threaded comments turn forums into chat rooms.
    Face it: H&R is a chat room for bored girlie men.

  • Bored Girlie Man||

    Oh, that's cold. Accurate, but cold.

  • spencer||

    By girlie men, did you mean guys with man boobs?

  • ||

    Hey!

  • jayburd||

    I think he meant plumber's helpers who wear eyeliner.

  • Heroic Mulatto||

    Secondly, I think if I go to an Occupy rall I'll carry a sign that says "UNIONS ARE CORPORATIONS". Just to see what kind of reaction I get.

    Violence. The reaction would be pure unthinking animalistic violence.

  • ||

    You need a two-sided sign.

    When someone challenges you on UNIONS ARE CORPORATIONS, turn your sign around to FUCK OFF, SLAVER.

  • Dick Trumpka||

    You want "pure unthinking animalistic violence"? Gimme a few minutes, I'll make some calls.

  • Dick Trumka||

    Me too!1!!11

  • Bill||

    Is this the same Wall Street that both Bush and Obama and most of congress insisted we bail out?? I'll bet many of the protesters were for the bail-out.

  • sevo||

    Well, they would have been, but they didn't get their cut.

  • ||

    pass tarp 17 with more bailout goodness for wall street AND total write offs of student loans. Then let's see how anti wall street they are.

  • Suki||

    An even better, but not as funny, video is of 9/11 Troofer man at NRO. He hates capitalism while not having a clue what it is.

  • Bee Tagger||

    I didn't watch the videos. Does he at least make more sense than forgiving all of the school loan debt in the country?

  • Herman Cain||

    If'n you make industrial-sized ovens you might call it sense.

  • Timmah||

    Fuck you, commie!

  • Mr. FIFY||

    Can't remember which fucktard is using Cain's name as an alias, but I think it's Max.

  • Heroic Mulatto||

    I think it's more like Juba the Iraqi Sniper.

  • Mr. FIFY||

    Good call.

  • Mr. FIFY||

    Or, perhaps, Baghdad Bob?

  • Herman Cain||

    Ron Paul kicked my Black ass at the Christ-Fag straw poll.

  • Timmah||

    Fuck you, commie!

  • Herman Cain||

    Yo Momma likes my 9-9-9 plan.

  • Mr. FIFY||

    Wait, never mind... it's shrike. The "Christ-Fag" gave it away.

  • ||

    shrike never capitalized either word in that epithet.

  • Herman Cain||

    As Silent Cal once said:

    You Lose

  • Mr. FIFY||

    Who else USES that worn-out phrase, Tulpa?

  • Mr. FIFY||

    Yep... my money's on it being shrike.

  • Restoras||

    Definitely shrike - the tonal moronicness is a dead giveaway.

  • ||

    Who else USES that worn-out phrase, Tulpa?

    Ever since shrike first used it?

    In jest and in parody just about everyone uses it now.

    Fake Cain could be anyone.

  • ||

    That's clearly a spoof of shrike, not the real thing.

  • ||

    9-9-9 has to be the lamest marketing gimmick since the $5 Footlong song.

  • Herman Cain||

    Yo' Momma likes my Footlong...in her ASS!

  • Mr. FIFY||

    I'd take 9-9-9 over the convoluted horseshit tax system we have now...

  • ||

    What was the lamest marketing gimmick since Hope & Change?

  • ||

    9-9-9 has to be the lamest marketing gimmick since the $5 Footlong song.

    Cain has surged in the polls since he started taking about it...

    ...so there is that.

    Can a political jingoism that works be lame?

    By the way i don't have a link to the league at work....did i win?

  • ||

    Ron Paul should offer a 0-0-0 plan.

    Danny looks a little swarthy to me.

  • mike c.||

    Sorry, I watched the first video. He said he was Jewish. Is he like a self-loathing WASP liberal?

  • Alan||

    Um, WASPs and Jews are kind of mutually exclusive.

    Yes, someone might have one WASP parent and one Jewish parent, but they cannot be both.

  • Pedro Cerrano||

    Gawker: Danny Cline had a One-Night Stand with Michele Bachmann

    I don't know whose fen is more grating: Ken Layne's or Nick Denton's.

  • Stretchy||

    I watched the first video, couldn't stomach more than 30 seconds of the second. To his credit, he does seem like every Red Bull drinking asshole I've ever met so, perhaps he has a shot at becoming their spokesthing.

  • The Art-P.O.G.||

    I usually recognize learning disabilities in others, and I'm pretty sure Cline has at least two.

  • sevo||

    Pretty sure Cline is missing even one learning *ability*, but I'm also not convinced Cline represents anything other than a run-of-the-mill whacko.

  • Dave||

    No. Every Teabagger is racist scum because there are allegations that at least one person who has associated themselves with the Tea Party uttered a racist epithet - so it is clear that every OWSer is a low IQ meth-head like Cline.

    Fuck Unity on the chief points that matter and which Teabaggers and OWSers agreee on - No, there's a chance to be hateful and divisive and self-destructive, so why on earth wouldn't we take it?

  • ||

    Yeah, cause branding the entire Tea Party as racist wasn't hateful, dismissive or destructive.

  • Suki||

    The minor disagreement the Tea Party and the OWS slackers have is who pays for everything.

    Sort of like that little disagreement the Communists have with Libertarians.

  • Suki||

    Pretty sure he is missing a chromosome.

  • ||

    I'm thinking drugs personally. Crystal meth, if I had to take a wild guess.

  • The Art-P.O.G.||

    Yeah, the guy's clearly whacked out. It might be crystal meth.

  • $6M RoboTorso||

  • PeoplePower||

    The OWS crowd is against corporations running our government. That doesn't mean everything they are and do is evil. The distinction is too subtle for you.

  • sevo||

    "The OWS crowd is against corporations running our government."
    Uh, try that the other way around, and you'll get some support.
    Without government handing out dough, there is no reason for "corporations: to have any interest in government.

    "That doesn't mean everything they are and do is evil. The distinction is too subtle for you."
    Uh, see above.

  • Heroic Mulatto||

    Do you even know what the word 'corporation' means?

  • Mr. FIFY||

    Apparently, PenisPower is in favor of government running the corporations.

  • ||

    I find this post offensive to Real PenisPower. (Unagi Powah is also slightly miffed.)

  • Mr. FIFY||

    You're right, wylie... I should have been more seeeeeennnsiiitiiiiiive.

  • A Serious Man||

    Corporations make Solyent Green.

  • Fluffy||

    And to show how much they want to stop corporations from running our government, they all demand higher taxes on individuals and sole proprietorships.

  • Mr. FIFY||

    Sad, innit?

    Yeah, corporations run our govnerment. That's why we have the world's highest corporate income tax, idiot.

    Not bad.

    We actually agree on a great deal with the OWSers, it's just that they ... have some learning difficulties.

    "Get your corporations out of my government!"

    "Get your government out of my corporations!"

    You'd think we could find a compromise ... but Lefties are a bit slow.

  • Suki||

    Looking for this one there, without any luck.

  • Heroic Mulatto||

    Hold up, you mean a populist, anti-banker/capitalist protest attracted a few anti-Semites?

    Color me shocked!

  • sevo||

    "Hold up, you mean a populist, anti-banker/capitalist protest attracted a few anti-Semites?"

    And I'll bet that's the most recognizable whacko that showed up.
    Pretty sure some of them are so far afield that I'd have a hard time even guessing at the message.

  • Not Team Blue, Just Annoyed||

  • NTBJA||

    This guy's an asshole and deserves to be made fun of, it's more the smug and dismissive tone of asides like "people who have nothing better to do on a weekday" that appear to refer to all protestors.

    The fact that leftblogs used this tactic to attack the Tea Party doesn't make it okay for Reason to do so, because engaging in that kind of tit-for-tat is petty and childish. Which is what I expect from TEAM RED rightblogs, but not Reason.

  • Heroic Mulatto||

    Spare us your sanctimonious bullshit. Everything about these protests is risible, and there is nothing wrong with pointing that fact out.

    Do you find it risible...when I mention my friend?

    "Look at me archly employing your dishonest mode of argumentation, while calling attention to the fact that I'm doing so, to shame you for your previous conduct."

    This is totally the mirror image of when the Tea Party protests were happening, and the media tried to portray them as all racists and nutcases because of a few bad eggs.

  • Herman Cain||

    They ALL "bad eggs" in the Occupiers.

  • johnl||

    Except that the Tea Party protests were shorter because the participants all had other responsibilities to attend to (jobs, families, ...). You can't up and take weeks off when people count on you. Something has gone very wrong when middle class America produces so many people who are not missed when they don't show up.

  • ||

    people who are not missed when they don't show up

    Hmmm. Ideas. I wonder how much SpaceX is going to charge for a passenger launch?

  • ||

    Not sure I get the point of posting about this guy. Nor why you pointed out that he's "vaguely effeminate." (could be something at one of the links that makes it worth mentioning, but based on this blog post, I just blew my whole load of interest in this on this comment.)

  • Herman Cain||

    We know what YOU watchin' on dat IPad!
    Mo' like "downlownumber".

  • ||

    Oooo. It's almost freaky how he knows!

  • Herman Cain||

    Once at a Godfather's retreat, desperate for some porn and no women on the management team at the time, me and a couple of other guys jerked off in a semi circle to a poster of Lonnie Anderson. My buddy Chris being a bit 'effeminate' and a joker came up behind me and stuck his pinky up my ass. I told him real mean like, "boy, you got thirty minutes to remove that pinky from my anus!"

  • Chris||

    That wasn't a pinky.

  • Esteban||

    It also wasn't Lonnie Anderson.

    Louie Anderson probably.

  • ||

    Lonnie Smith actually, I specifically remember someone yelling "Yes yes fuck me Skates!!!" at climax

  • Mr. FIFY||

    LONI Anderson, perhaps.

    I doubt, though, that a guy named "Lonnie Anderson" would have a poster of himself printed, as it would be a huge expense for a very narrow market segment (i.e., guys named "shrike" who would have erotic fantasies based on said poster).

  • Fluffy||

    Dude, it's a run of the mill insult directed at a fool.

    You can take your blue shirt off and calm down now.

  • ||

    Doubling down on homophobia, eh?

  • Fluffy||

    How is it homophobia?

    Half the guys at Boston Pride Weekend could kick my fucking ass up and down the street.

    Frankly, you're the one stereotyping here, by asserting by implication that all gays are effeminate. They aren't.

    How about we just agree that being an effeminate man is kind of lame ("Gasp! Able-ist!"), but has little or nothing to do with your sexual preference?

    I'm also not buying into this "It's even bullying when you insult a psycho douchebag like this guy" nonsense. I don't care how many PSA's you've seen, this guy deserves to have all of his personal characteristics mocked.

  • ||

    Frankly, you need someone to explain to you why using "vaguely effeminate" as a pejorative is homophobic. It will not be me. I already understand how willfully obtuse you are.

  • ||

    And, again frankly, it's insulting to women to say that effeminate is an insult.

  • ||

    Is calling a woman masculine an insult to men?

    Cuz I really could give a shit if people call a masculine woman masculine.

    As a man it does not bother me in the least.

  • ||

    Simply describing a specific woman as masculine is not an insult to men. The insult comes from attaching a negative connotation to that quality.

  • ||

    Ain't nothin' 'vague' about it. I had him pegged as a queer his first semi-coherent sentence.

    You know why liberals hate capitalism? Because making money is fun! The whole political philosophy is about raining on people's parades with secularized guilt trips. So far, I've made seven hundred bucks off of three bets on the playoffs. Even bet against my Philies.

    A liberal looks at that seven hundred dollars and sees a few hundred of it going to bullshit like self esteem courses for the homeless at the local community college, and that gives them a stiff woody. I see the money being split by several single mothers over the next several weeks after servicing my stiff woody!

    Okay, in truth, if the next two bets hold up, that mullah going to a spanking new gaming system. Hey libs, I'm not going to declare that ill gotten loot for taxation purposes, so stop drooling over it already, you pervs.

    GOP's embrace of Cain, Cynical Ploy or Principled Progress?

    That Cain’s campaign is so studiously scrubbed free of race is a commentary on the very racialization he eschews. His Web site features his stances on immigration, national security, taxation, energy and health care. There is no reference to civil rights concerns, disproportionate incarceration or what is, at this point, a racialized unemployment crisis. This is curious only because, unlike the other Republican candidates, Cain believes that he can win a solid third of the black vote. Late last month he said blacks have been “brainwashed” into voting for Democrats (always a smart move to insult the intelligence of people whose votes you’re seeking). But it would require a specific kind of brainwashing — the doctrine that epidermal allegiance should trump actual political interests — for Cain to win a third of an electorate whose key issues don’t even crack the top 10 on his Web site.

    Son of a b*tch computer. Here's the second, pro-Cain article:

    During his campaign four years ago, Obama generally refused to invoke race or racial imagery. Now he apparently feels compelled to do so to generate support for his policies and his reelection bid. I thought the Democrats had maxed out the race card and cut it up with scissors, never to be used again.

    But it seems that Republicans and conservatives have taken a step forward to support a black candidate for the presidency, while Obama has taken two steps back by using race to divide Americans, rather than bring us together.

    He probably could've worded it better, but he does have a point. I think many people who vote consistently Republican as well as those who vote consistently Democratic just kinda go through the motions.

    always a smart move to insult the intelligence of people whose votes you’re seeking.

    I would like to think there is some threshold to how much smoke you can blow up someone's ass before they smarten up. If someone, anyone decided to run for President, got up in front of a live camera and said "you know what's wrong with America? Every. Single. One. Of. You. You have ceded your responsibilities as citizens and free people to the whims of unelected bureaucrats and panels made up of well-connected corporatists who rob you blind then fuck you in the ass to add insult to injury. But as long as they have the right letter behind their name, or their putting the stolen money in your pocket, you're okay with it. So what's to be done? Not a damn thing. You're slaves. Congratulations, the republic is finished and apparently failure was the only option.

    Peace out, bitches."

    "Vaguely effeminate" refers not to whatever Cline does in the privacy of his own home but to the fact that he goes around acting like a tough guy and manages to push around another adult male even though it's clear he couldn't punch his way out of a wet bag of donuts.

    He kept running from that scrawny old fart. Geez dude, just walk fast so you don't look like that much of a milquetoast.

    If that's what you meant by effeminate, it was a poorly chosen adjective. Not only does it not mean what you think it means according to your explanation, but it has sexist implications (even aside from any suggestion of homophobia per se) that should embarrass the sort of person who writes for Reason.

    Note on Lotion Man=

    The guy who has the most video of the fella is Normal Bob Smith, a guy who dresses like Satan and hangs around Union Square filming oddballs.

    http://www.normalbobsmith.com/

    Lotion Man (Danny Kline) was figured in his vignettes well before the OWS events. I think it might be unfair to associate him with the OWS thing at all. He's a union square (possibly crackhead) personality who latched on to the party occurring downtown and just basked in the attention. I think if anything Reason is making the guy to be something he's probably not = politically motivated, or sane.

    FWIW, Normal Bob Smith is pretty interesting, and has tons of hilarious clips (some linked above) of some of the odder denizens of NYC's Union Sq scene.

    He also is the man who invented the "Dress Up Jesus" kitchen-magnets.

    http://www.jesusdressup.com/

    credit where credit is due.

    His videos are pretty funny too. I think I've seen him around the city once or twice, both in and out of his Satan-in-Tux garb. I'm going to see if he likes to play pool. That would be fun... kicking Satan's ass at pool. I'd bet my soul, why not. Maybe he'd bring his Unholy Army of Catholic Schoolgirls along. That would be a fun night out.

    I think I remember seeing the lotion man's grandpa in the movies at one time. Oh yes, here:

    Three years of Obama - the VERY BEST the Democrats have ever had to offer - has given us:
    
- $14 trillion deficit
    - 98.9% Debt to GDP
    - US in a depression
    - ruined economy
    - US credit rating downgraded
    - 20% real unemployment
    
- ignores the War Powers Act
    - gas/food/clothing prices skyrocketing
    - 5 wars, one with a record death toll
    - foreign policy disasters

    - raiding the public pension fund to avoid the debt ceiling

    - lost 800+ seats for his own party
    
- poll numbers in the toilet
    
- 44 million Americans on food stamps
    - Over half the states suing to get out of Obamacare

    - 1 in 4 mortgages under water
    
- ATF gunrunning scandal unfolding
    - Solyndra scandal unfolding
    ANYBODY BUT OBAMA!

    In communist countries you have the right to a job.

    In capitalist countries you have the right to start a business.

    If these protesters don't want to go out and start a business but only want a job they should be protesting in front of the white house for policies that would make it easier for entrepreneurs to start companies that would create jobs.

    They should be protesting in front of the white house for lower taxes and less regulation.

    The guy's name is Danny Cline. He has a Jewish name, a New York Jewish accent and claims to be Jewish, yet he has become the poster boy for alleged "anti-Semitism" among the protestors. How precious.

    If you buy this you're a bigger idiot than he is.

    He is either an agent provocateur or a genuine nut case, it's hard to tell, but he has certainly managed to get a lot of air time and attention. If this pathetic asshole is the best example of anti-Semitism the media and its hacks can come up with, they'd better hire a better quality of agent provocateur.

    There are always idiots and assholes who will make anti-Semetic or racist comments or carry racist signs, and these people have showed up at Tea party rallies as well. Where they don't exist, agent provocateurs can be enlisted to carry out this function for the purpose of demonizing any mass movement.

    The real question you need to ask, is why does the media always focus on these outliers at both the OWS and the Tea party rallies? Why do so many Leftists and conservatives who fancy themselves "free thinkers" always fall for these transparently manipulative tactics and conclude that Tea partiers or OWS movement are all racists and don't represent the people? The sad irony is that jumping to conclusions about an entire group of people based on the behavior of a handful is bigotry in and of itself. But it very clearly works when people already have a bias against the people in question such as "commie" or "fascist."

    Whether you consider yourself a conservative or a left-winger, don't fall for the ruling elite's divide and rule bullshit that aims to pit us against each other rather than against them.
