(CNS News) (http://cnsnews.com/blog/paul-wilson/magazine-calls-occupiers-come-chicago-tradition-1968-rioters) — Adbusters, the radical, Vancouver-based anti-consumerist magazine, credited (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/28/business/media/the-branding-of-the-occupy-movement.html?pagewanted=all) by many media outlets for launching the Occupy Wall Street protests, has put out (http://inthesetimes.com/uprising/entry/12624/adbusters_calls_for_50000_protesters_to_meet_at_ch icagos_g8) an ad calling for 50,000 protestors to “Occupy” the G8 summit in May. And they are not calling for peaceful protest.


The Adbusters ad (http://www.adbusters.org/blogs/adbusters-blog/tactical-briefing-25.html) shows a picture of policemen beating up a defenseless protestor, and comes with the caption: “In the Tradition of the Chicago 8.” The Chicago 8 were radicals who incited riots in Chicago during the 1968 Democratic convention. The 1968 convention unrest became so legendary that the band Crosby, Stills, Nash (and Young) wrote a song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pswvi3QN_tI) about it called “Chicago.” The “tradition” of the Chicago 8 included calling for displays of public fornication (http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/Chicago7/Account.html) and attacking police.


According to the official statement (http://www.adbusters.org/blogs/adbusters-blog/tactical-briefing-25.html) of Adbusters (titled Tactical Briefing #25), “On May 1, 50,000 people from all over the world will flock to Chicago, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and #OCCUPYCHICAGO for a month. With a bit of luck, we’ll pull off the biggest multinational occupation of a summit meeting the world has ever seen.”


The ad threatens to shut down the economy if their demands are not met: “And if they don’t listen . . . if they ignore us and put our demands on the back burner like they’ve done so many times before . . . then, with Gandhian ferocity, we’ll flashmob the streets, shut down stock exchanges, campuses, corporate headquarters and cities across the globe . . . we’ll make the price of doing business as usual too much to bear.”

How nice all 6 months before the elections. And in obama's back yard in Chicago. Oh won't it be lovely to see mass riots and violence being perpetrated by the OWS on innocent people all while the left fawn over them.

This will be entertaining. Rahm won't allow this to happen and will get serious with them, and I hope Obama will be attending. As he comes out to inform them he "Feels their pain" and "Hearing them" on their cause, he will be rubbing elbows with those they hate and signing agreements they oppose.

Rahm will either beat them down, or use their demands to take over something that he wants control of, or to extract concessions from some business interests. One thing is for certain, and that is that he won't let the crisis go to waste.

Tear gas is awful. They are fools for being willing to expose themselves to it just to make a point that nobody cares about at this point.

The skulls are even emptier this time around, so there isn't much internal support to keep them from cracking. :D
