Occupy DC Promises to Bring the Revolution—and Big Labor—to CPAC
Having been driven out of McPherson Square in Washington, D.C., Occupiers are now planning to set up camp at the Marriot Wardman Park Hotel, where they will harass the "bigots, media mouthpieces, corrupt politicians, and their 1 percent elite puppet masters" slated to attend this year's Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC.
Occupiers will join up with the "AFL-CIO, SEIU, National Nurses United, Metro Labor Council, [and] OurDC" at Malcolm X Park (located at Euclid and 16th Streets NW). From there they will march to the Marriott in Woodley Park (that's a 1.2 mile hike.)
Once at the hotel, the Occupiers and their Big Labor compadres will "have actions" and "make our voices heard."
Occupiers are inviting "ANYONE WHO HAS EVER BEEN SUPPORTIVE OF REAL DEMOCRACY, EQUALITY AND POSITIVE DISCOURSE" to help them shout out people whose politics they find intolerable.
Here is 1-percenter (and friend of Reason!) Peter Schiff speaking to the 99 at Occupy Wall Street:
Bonus: Here's a video of me asking women at CPAC 2010 if they were there to find boyfriends; a question that got me flogged by every corner of the Internet for being a leering misogynist. (Not a single one of those sites, nor the conservative commenters who lit into my ass in the Youtube comments, awarded me mitigating points for having soundtracked the video with Jemina Pearl-led Be Your Own Pet.)
