Well, it’s official, Occupy Toronto is dead! After many months of flogging a dead horse, dwindling numbers, and lots of negative PR, the Activistocrats have decided to throw-in the towel. Well, not quite, they are pulling a Blackwater/Xi style re-branding exercise. This is perfect, Judy Rebick can write a whole new book about it!
The Canadian Occupy movement began as a group of people from diverse political beliefs and backgrounds. As time went on, people from the anarcho-communist began to slowly hijack Toronto & Vancouver- directing the movement to being about unions and lefty causes. It got so bad earlier this winter that the people of Occupy Toronto did a flash-mob promoting usury alongside the Steelworker’s union. Judy Rebick was so proud!
Well, Occupy Toronto died a slow death after the encampment ended. Activistocrats like Dave Vasey, Sakura Saunders & Activistokittens like Krystalline Kraus let their egos, and pandering to the unions, get in the way and they crushed their own organization like a grape. And, each time someone called them on what they were doing they got angry and exposed their hypocrisy with their reactions.
But, don’t worry Torontonians! Occupy Toronto is in the process of re-branding, and the new name they chose for themselves is the Phoenix Network. So Original! But, it is highly unlikely this firebird will fly very far. It probably would have been better had they rebranded as the Icarus Network. Once they get too close to the sun their wings will likely melt off once again.
In honour of their rebranding, I have registered the domain name www.PhoenixNetwork.ca. There’s not much there at the moment- but, as time goes by and they kick-start their antics, I’m sure there will be plenty of content for the future…
Occupy Toronto is dead! Long live the Phoenix Network!
