    Occupiers Claim They Are Suffering From PTSD…

    Via EAG News:


    All of that daily pouting and shouting can really wear on a soul, they say. And the best way to deal with it is to have a good cry.


    One document published by Occupy Chicago, titled “Responding to Trauma in Protests and Mass Mobilizations: Supporting Yourself and Others to Cope with Traumatic Incidents,” begins:


    “Factors that place us at greater risk for post-traumatic stress are having a history of abuse, not getting support that we need from our allies, and being separated from others, either during or following the action. Because abuse is pervasive in this culture, learning to heal from and integrate our traumatic experiences in action can empower us to live our lives more fully every day.”


    Occupy Chicago explains the warning signs in another document titled, “Crisis Fact Sheet: 10 Ways to Recognize Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder,”



    • Feeling “emotionally numb.”
    • Crying uncontrollably.
    • Isolating oneself from family and friends and avoiding social situations.
    • Relying increasingly on alcohol or drugs to get through the day.
    • Feeling extremely moody, irritable, angry, suspicious or frightened.
    • Feeling overwhelmed by what would normally be considered everyday situations and diminished interest in performing normal tasks or pursuing usual interests.
    • Feeling guilty about surviving the event or being unable to solve the problem, change the event or prevent the disaster.
    • Feeling fears and sense of doom about the future.

    All of those pretty much describe the Occupy crowd. But the self-important audacity of Occupy shines through in another document, titled “Trauma and Healing. It calls for a healthy dose of self-pity and weeping to overcome the effects of PTSD.

    If you wag your dick at a crocodile, don't get pissed if he bites it off.

    Occupying the tracks in the subway for a day would cure that condition.

    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    I couldn't have laughed harder with their pamphlets they are handing out.

    Feeling guilty about surviving the event
    Yes, you showed up at a protest. You didn't get killed and now feel guilty for surviving it.

    Nature needs to weed more of these morons out so they don't feel guilty.

    How long before they're at their local Social Security office applying for disability benefits?
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    They sound like my crazy friend from college. One day, about 20 years after I graduated and about 10 after she did, she said about her first 4 years (my entire college time) "It's lucky we survived those tough times". I don't know what the hell she was talking about, I had a lot of fun in the 4 years I was in college. I just avoided the heartache of promiscuity, and so did she, for the most part.


    Drama Queens, all of them, including my crazy friend, who is hopefully sensible enough to avoid the Chicago OWS protests. These aren't the honorable anti-apartheid protests from our college days.
