So, I was invited out to a party tonight by someone who I’ve got to know quite well at Occupy Vancouver- a highly political NDP guy who has also been involved from the beginning. And what do I find but a room full of BlackBloc ninjas, and a number of their supporters! One of the more surprising people attending was Ruth Meta, a former director at DERA! Ruth also said that she had been connected with this group ‘for years’. No wonder she was so against me when I started to turn-up the heat!
So, now that you’ve watched the video (and you have, yes), does’t much of the language, and misguided logic sound familiar to you now? Time to take care of these people before their delusions of grandeur drive them to get too confident.
Go back to the video now to 1:08:30, and listen to what this Australopithecus has to say: “The thing about when you enter into a period of social conflict, what you don’t want is people promoting non-violence…” So, there you have it- there is a reason behind their madness! But, doesn’t this conflict with Harsha Walia’s explanation of Diversity of Tactics? Aren’t they supposed to be respecting the fact others chose a peaceful path?
People keep telling me that I should be patient, wait for them to burn themselves out. Well, I have only one thing to say, and will take a quote from Vibrator’s video: Fuck Patience!
Oh yeah, and David Eby, what is going on in your mind that you thought it wasn’t a good idea to speak up about this? Are you ignorant, insane, or just simply connected to these people?
