A lone photojournalist exposes the madness.

Neo-Cannibals, Deadbeats, Dopers and Democrats Occupy Denver

Back with a Vengeance, Evicted Protesters Take the Streets

Denver, October 16, 2011  –  by El Marco

“Occupy Denver” returned to the streets with a vengeance Saturday after being expelled, having their camp forcibly removed from Veterans’ Park by police at 4 a.m. Friday morning. October 15 was declared International Day of Action, which saw radical socialist/anarchist Occupy protests and violence in European and American cities.

The Occupy Denver crowd reached approximately 2000 – 3,000.

Chanting “Whose street? Our street!,” Occupy Denver blocked off Broadway street in front of the State Capitol Building for much of Saturday afternoon and evening.

Colorado State Troopers ringed the State Capitol to protect a gathering of veterans, as well as a State Congressional prayer meeting. Already wary after protesters disrupted a press conference on the Capitol steps by rushing the building en masse late last week, troopers stood guard all day and into the night.

This was the scene across from the Capitol at noon, as protesters gathered before the planned march on the Federal Reserve Building six blocks to the north. Left-wing protesters have the clenched fist as their symbol just as the Tea Party uses a teabag. The term “Fister” is now commonly used to describe any fist-pumping leftist protester.

The crowd, which later distilled into a hot-headed mob battling police, included an odd mixture of liberals dominated by organized communist, trade union and anarchist groups, as well as a large presence of 9/11 Truthers and Ron Paul libertarians. Tie-dyed psychedelic geezers from the ’60s tottered about amongst more recent generations of drug-users, and the smell of medical marijuana mingled in the air with the sounds of the zombie-like chanting made famous by the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York.

An Occupy Denver community organizer leads the bizarre chanting ritual. Never have I seen anything that comes as close to a mind-control exercise in a free society.

The orange tape insignia on this woman’s arm indicates that she is a leader. I was told that any questions I had could be addressed to someone with this type of insignia. When I first saw this militant-looking marking, it reminded me of the Order of the Double-Cross, made famous in the Charlie Chaplin movie, The Great Dictator.

Charlie Chaplin, complete with fist pumping, comically portrays a famous mid-20th century socialist dictator speaking out against Jewish bankers and capitalists in general.

A self-described union activist swore allegiance to the labor movement and revolutionaries in general. He wore a shirt with the image of Emilio Zapata, the famous Mexican guerilla army leader of the 19th century. The back of his shirt was imprinted with Zapata’s words, “It is better to die on your feet, than to live a lifetime on your knees.”

 The man on the right was the main leader, who did the most talking. He led the march, barking orders and conducting maneuvers with military precision. He is definitely the main character of the day, and I will refer to him as El Comandante. The vast majority of the speeches/zombie chants throughout the day reminded me of:

Love that gay patriotic humor.

This speaker was definitely a community organizer with assigned responsibilities. He’s the guy who hands out the orange armbands to other organizers so that everything will run smoothly.

The crowd in this shot included an anarchist (right), a 9/11 truther (with sign The War on terror is a hoax,) and a flag-waving socialist. Many, if not most, of these people are remnants of the massive anti-war movement that seemed to disappear when Obama was elected. They’ve been sitting around with nothing to do but drugs, and you can expect to see more and more of them on the streets as this “new movement” grows.

Hippy geezer activists, with orange double-cross insignia, reliving their ’60s glory days. The days of yoer when the music set the tone for the REVOLUTION.

Today there is a new anthem for this modern day movement … and it is a great song that serves as a perfect  …



This leather-clad woman brought her own megaphone and spoke in a faux-Russian accent about “extra-terrestrial financing,” and other important topics relevant to the day’s march.

She calls herself Mufti which is a reference to the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hitlers guest in Berlin and fellow genocidal war criminal during WWII.

Ever since Karl Marx defined his vision of a future utopia, socialists have been awaiting the complete collapse of the world-wide free enterprise system, and the beginning of a cataclysmic international Marxist revolution. This mans sign means the beginning of that revolution is near.

The Occupy Wall Street movement is supported by Communist Party USA, the Islamic Republic of Iran, communist dictator Hugo Chavez, China, as well as the AFL-CIO, SEIU, AlgoreNancy Pelosi, Bill Ayers, Barack Obama, the Democrat Party and Marxist-Leninists generally.

The violent Jacobin tendency among socialists was evident in many of the signs carried at this march.

They start training them for the revolution very young these days. Note the proud father looking on as his daughter hoists her protest sign, background left.

Above we see a classic astroturfing operation. Handmade signs produced by a radical organization are intended to lend a “spontaneous grassroots feel” to what is a highly organized leftist operation. Nobody has ever witnessed this type of activity at a tea party, even in Washington, D.C. when there were a million participants. Yet  astroturfing is standard procedure of every leftist or Obama administration-organized “action” that I have photographed.


I have a number of photographs of children who you could tell were very uncomfortable at this strange event. Ryan Shaw from Parker CO holds an astroturf sign, above. He was brought here by his grandmother, who told me that he didn’t want to attend because he was afraid he would be arrested, and that could ruin his dreams of becoming a U.S. Marine. Hang in there Ryan in a few years you will be a free man.


Neo-cannibals seemed to be everywhere. Above, a sign adorned with a skull with a red anarchist ‘A,’ and bloody knife and fork recall the peak of the psychedelic revolution in 1969, when Charles Manson and his crew of hippy chicks went on a murder spree and bragged about defiling the corpses of their wealthy victims with flatware.

President Obama’s friends, infamous terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn, shocked the world by publicly rejoicing and declaring the three-fingered fork sign as a new revolutionary symbol. This guy looks ready to chow down.

One day the poor will have nothing to eat but the RICH!   More evidence of a growing neo-cannibal tendency on the left? This photo records the return of the Manson hippy chick cult type to the anti-american protest scene. What’s with the plastic fork pasted to her sign à la Bernardine Dohrn? Are the “RICH” the picnic luncheon meat of her utopian vision of future America?

“Dohrn was criticized for comments she made about the murders of actress Sharon Tate and retail store owners Leno and Rosemary LaBianca by the Charles Manson clan. In a speech during the December 1969 “War Council” meeting organized by the Weathermen, attended by about 400 people in Flint, Michigan, Dohrn said, “First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, then they even shoved a fork into the victim’s stomach! Wild!” In greeting each other, delegates to the war council often spread their fingers to signify the fork.” – Wikipedia

I was young and stoned once but at that time I recoiled in horror when the news of Dohrn’s violent exhortations became headline news. I remember the day when I heard her statements. I followed the news of the Weather Underground carefully in real time and it became a snippet of reality that helped make clear to me that those with violent lunatic impulses inevitably rise to the forefront of radical leftist movements.El Marco Touchy Feely Moment

Here are three protesters who definitely brought their own signs. This is the real grassroots movement that will save America and the world?

One of the focuses, understandably, of the rally was the desperate need in America for jobs. While the blame for the unemployment situation was placed on the “bankers” for “ruining our economy”, many of the participants appeared to be the authors of their own misfortune.

Pop-culture fashion today dictates that women and men put huge tattoos across their chests, arms, legs, backs, hands, and if they are really daring, on their faces. Top that off with a matted mass of mop-like dreadlocks and a few rings and studs piercing nostrils, eyelids, and lips, and you may be out of luck when it comes to finding a job. Add to that habitual drug use, including the chronic lethargy, munchies, and short-term memory loss caused by smoking high potency modern cannabis, and you have created a person that not even the most open-minded liberal will employ. But it’s always easier to blame others than to face the reality of bad choices that ruin a person’s life.

 This fellow is the lone representative in this post of the many, many photographs I took of people who were there to support legalization of drugs as their main issue. When I asked him about his shirt, he told me that it is from a glass-pipe shop in Denver, which supplies drug users with paraphernalia. When I asked him what the most expensive pipe there costs, I was surprised when he said $7,000.

 Joe Sacco has a degree in film making. I asked him if he would turn down a job with a salary of $74,000, and he said that  he would consider it, depending on the benefits package. He made it clear that his sign is totally serious. Note the high quality, expensive astroturf signs stacked in the background.

Many college grads voiced their grievances about the fact that they didn’t immediately get high paying jobs right out of school. Choosing fields of study that are not in high demand, or racking up debt rather than working and saving, were their choices. The consequences of getting a degree in art history or an advanced degree in basket weaving, like Stanley Ann Dunham, can be living on food stamps when one is unwilling to take a job below one’s qualifications. Boo Hoo.


 Yadda yadda yadda. To whom is his sign addressed? The job fairy!

Tragically, this little girl looks like she’s already on a course that may damage her possibilities. Please, sweetheart, don’t get any tattoos or piercings. According to one professor I heard speaking on the subject, fewer university students are disfiguring themselves these days and the fashion seems to be going out of style as the weak economy presents them with a serious reality check. An amazing number of the protestors have prominent tattoos.   Slavery was another theme. I didn’t ask any of them if they’ve met someone who has actually been a slave. I personally know two men who escaped slavery in Africa and made it to America. Simon Deng and Francis Bok both love America, even though they are not wealthy here. They were both tortured for yaers by their Arab masters and forced to drink water and eat food with animals.

What these protesters refer to as slavery, i.e. working for a paycheck, looks like Nirvana to the vast majority of the world’s population. People who think like these leftists are slaves to their own sense of entitlement and are victims only of a culture of unwarranted grievance.

 Another Jacobin threat of violence? At least she’s not a slave.

 This is a utopian airhead leftist who, on her own, has come up with the Pol-Pot formula for a perfect socialist society.

 Capitalism Kills People & Destroys the Environment.

 The REVOLUTION is NOT an apple that falls when it is ripe. YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT FALL.”   – Che Guevara

More violent thoughts from the highly indoctrinated youth of America. Did you learn that in art school from your commie professors?

Michelle Malkin linked to a video of a Denver University student at Occupy Denver saying “There’s a lot of stuff that needs to change, and if it doesn’t, violent revolution will come. If you get the thirteen families that own the world, including George Bush and his administration, get them in front of the White House and hang them and shoot them, because they deserve that.”


 When the march to the Federal Reserve got underway, it was done with an odd kind of lefty militancy, complete with drummers, drill Sergeants and El Comandante barking orders and leading the way.

Lots o’ rage. People who didn’t appear angry for the last  hour now seethed with white-hot anti-capitalist passion.


 As they approached the Federal Reserve, the anarchists moved in to lead the march with locked arms.

Anarchism, according to the sign in front, is a totalitarian ideology. TRUE TRANSFORMATION TAKES 100%. No deviation allowed.


 The socialists, left, and the anarchists, right, take turns giving speeches to the crowd in front of the Chase Bank. Every time violence breaks out in recent years, the socialists say, “Oh, that was the anarchists. They aren’t part of our movement.” This is always a lie. They are allies, they are joined at the groin, and they share the same aim: toppling western civilization and free democracies worldwide.

 El Comandante has retaken the lead in front of the Federal Reserve. Time for some more zombie chanting, and then the Long March back to Civic Center Park, where they started.

Police vehicles loaded with  heavily armed riot teams followed along with the mob at every block. The man with the humorous sign was the only counter-protester that I saw.

UPDATE: No that is not me, my beard is much longer, but I am curious about his tee-shirt, Team America maybe?

This Somali taxi driver looked at the passing protesters in perplexity. He asked me what they were doing. I explained that they are demonstrating because they are angry that there are not enough jobs, and they hate the free market economic system. On top of his cab, an ad: From ASPIRATION TO REALITY. Argosy University, aspire to be.

He calmly said to me, “I’m working, and I’m studying. What do they mean, there’s no jobs?” From his textbook I saw that he is studying DNA in a biology textbook. Bet you this guy is going to be a doctor some day.

 As the marchers neared Civic Center Park, a couple of dozen plonked themselves down on the street and refused to go any farther, sending El Comandante into a rage, background center right. “Not f##king here. Get up.” He told them they should occupy the street in front of the Capitol.

 They rose in awe of El Comandante’s power, and followed as he led to the Capitol.

El Comandante led them to the front of the capitols west side where 200-300 sat on Broadway St. and started with the zombie chanting again.

The occupation of the street seemed to be a tantrum in reaction to Governor Hickenlooper’s order to clean them out of the park on Thursday night. Up until that moment, protesters had considered the Governor to be a radical like them. He was outed as a radical during his tenure as Mayor of Denver, when it was revealed that he established and funded the Chinook Fund, which he specifically created to support organizations that were too extreme leftist for other liberal foundations to channel money to. Now they see him as a traitor, no longer an extremist but a sellout.

Sitting away from the crowd I spotted a group of neo-cannibals handing out free water. I took a chance and asked for a bottle and came away without a bite or a scratch. The sign on the right, is that about cannibalism, slavery or rape?

Not all of the crowd was extreme. There were people there with whom the average Tea Party-er could wholeheartedly agree. Ben Meyer was there in honor of his college friend, who committed suicide after being offered a credit card with a $50,000 limit on it by a big bank. The friend lived off the credit card, paying  his rent, and when that ran out, compounded with his student loans, it became too much for him to bear.    STOP PREDATORY LENDING! It’s wrong, it’s dangerous, and it’s not fair to young people.


I was also very attracted to this lady’s um, message. Her sign should read, “RE-ENACT GLASS-STEAGALL” and I am 100% in agreement. By separating investment from lending, and breaking up the banks into smaller institutions, a number of essential reforms are achieved, including cutting the size of the “too big to fail” institutions.

I left at this point knowing there was trouble to come. Rioting and skirmishes with police went on well into the night in Denver and around the world.

UPDATE: Barney Frank supports protesters, raises Wall St. cash

    This is the best site for anyone who desires to find out about this subject. You notice so much its almost onerous to argue with you (not that I truly would want…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a subject thats been wrote about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!

    These complete morons need to get lives. How sad having these kids in these protests. GLEN BECK IS THE MAN!

    so check this out el camandte whatever you said he did not actually do that march it was me Im a veteran of two tours and you have no idea what im capable of doing, if I actually got complete control you have no idea what I could do take care.

    • El Marco

      Here we have three examples of what goes on inside an OWS protesters head. Actually this is what it’s like talking to some of them.

  • VaidLeVey

    I have a simple solution for all those ex-students with college loans to repay, join the Army. That’s what I did when I got out of college back in ’94, the Army had a program where if you joined the active branch for three years they repaid your loans up to $55,000 and deferred your interest on said loans while you were in an active status. (This was back in ’94 so the amount is most likely higher at this point.)

  • dan-o

    El Marco – you are one righteous dude. Thanks for your photo essay, and more importantly thanks for your response to the 3 apples idiot.

  • bruce108

    I think 1 platoon from 1 company can do the job when the time comes.

  • Grady Meggison

    The OWS talk about economic injustice which can be solved fundamentally through redistribution of wealth, but how is that done? Do we forcibly take money from the “rich” and give it to those who are “needy”? Are they serious?

  • john

    To whom it may concern,
    If you do-not remove my picture and subsequent comment’s about me immediatly ; I WILL sue you for libel…I am a college student and single father and , also very dedicated at both…I do-not use drugs and do-not drink …You have cast me in an insulting light as well as stated untrue and antagonistic lies about myself and others…cease and desist -or I will be forced to take immediate legal action against you and any subsidiaries you associate with.
    John Rogers.

    • El Marco

      Dear John, I don’t wish to mischaracterize anyone. Which photograph is of you?

    • Cate

      I have to reply here. First off, defamation of character is VERY difficult to prove in court. The First Amendment protects our free speech. It protects you, but it protects El Marco, too. And frankly, an opinion is not regarded in court. El Marco has an opinion, based on where you were, and the situation in which you placed yourself. Blaming someone else for the situation in which YOU placed yourself is your own issue, and further highlights what people are saying about your…”movement.”

      Next, let me pose this question for you. Has it occurred to you, even a little bit, that the situation in which YOU placed yourself is out there for all to see? The internet is unforgiving and everything that shows up there will remain there forever. Pictures of you were not just taken by El Marco, but by many, many other people. They show up on blogs, YouTube, Flickr and thousands of other places. Don’t forget, potential employers look at the photos, videos, and blogs, too. When you show up for an interview, and the person in front of you puts two and two together, that person will have already formed an opinion about what kind of person you are, and what kind of employee you will be. First impressions are everything, and you chose to put yourself where you were. I am an employer, and here I am reading and responding to this blog. You can be very sure that I have already formed an opinion of you.

      Next, if you are in college, you will have more credibility if you use proper grammar. Shall I redline your entire comment? There are more mistakes than I can count on one hand. That also does not show you in the best light, and doesn’t say a whole lot about your college education. For example, the word usage in the first line is, “comments” not “comment’s”. Please. We all learned the proper use of possessives in the 2nd grade.

      Lastly, threatening a lawsuit means that you have money to spend on an attorney. Sure, an attorney will gladly take your case for upwards of $300 or more, per hour. And yes, that would be a capitalist attorney. Think someone will do that pro bono for you? Stand in line.

  • Cate

    Love the photos of the idiots who are railing on about how EEEVVVIIILLLL capitalism is. Yet, they show up wearing their designer clothes, expensive sunglasses, sporting the latest in digital cameras, iPhones, iPads, you name it. Look at the photo 4th up from the bottom. Don’t you just love the gal in the red shirt who is texting on her smart phone? Probably texting all her friends about the cool protest, and how they are going to take down capitalism…but hey, let’s meet for drinks at Lodo’s after the cool protest is over!! And how about the guy in the upper left who is setting up his tripod, so he can snap pictures using his digital camera! Oh, those poor misguided fools. I wonder where they think they will get all their expensive toys, gadgets and clothes should the companies who actually MAKE those things shut down.

  • Rita

    These protests are outdoor asylums. Seriously!

  • Timothy Noffsinger

    El Marco,

    I appreciate this close, clear look at these political events, especially with appropriate humor.

    The most devastating kind of lie is a partial truth, a devious mix of truth and lie. That’s a tyrant’s main tool, or “stock in trade.” I see that much of this kind of statement are present with the protestors. For example, debt truly is a kind of slavery…but who signed the contract?

    Who sets the students’ expectations anyway? I think the parents are fooled also. Where are the guidance counselors when you need them? Oooops! They work for big education too. But each student’s decision is his own.

    Does the pinch of educations loans help the student understand the problem of national debt? He who doesn’t learn from his mistakes…

    I like the idea of doing away with government subsidy in the form of student loans. It has been a major factor in making our colleges and universities into slovenly fool farms. The prospect of easy money for education balloons the price up and attracts those who hate accountability like any government subsidy does. This also destroys the consumer’s (student and parents) impetus to get a good value for his money…because it’s not his money! Then when reality settles in after graduation; and the bill comes due; irresponsible people like these, whose bubble has burst by not getting an easy “$75,000″/year job, want to blame their reality on another. There you have it.

    Hey wait a minute!! Haven’t we heard of bursting bubbles before? Yes! This is the same thing as forcing banks to fund stupid mortgage contracts, and then have the government buying them…and then the foreclosure/default cascade wreaks havoc on the real estate markets.

    Well…it’s difficult to identify the motivations and intentions of another, but we can see the results. Democrat (mostly Democrat) policies have tweaked, bent, and weakened our free enterprise with such government misadventures; and now the Communists et al are swooping in to “capitalize” on the pain of foolish youngsters. And thanks to El Marco’s presentation, I see that there’s certainly no shortage of “useful idiots” of all ages to follow a young tyrant’s lead.

    Beware! The Communist playbook is always the same…they foment/join a popular anti-government movement, infiltrate the movement, help “the people” make it successful; then when they come to power, they eliminate all competition and set up neighborhood committees for the defense of the revolution. That’s when all children are tasked with spying on and telling on their parents by their new father, the tyrant head of the ruling party. It takes less than half a generation to complete control. No more liberty.

    And our present government makes us pay dearly to run the programs that hurt everybody. It’s time for regime change in Washington…via the true American way…ballot. Lies are put down with truth. Thanks for helping spread some, El Marco.

  • Marco…Superb work as always. Really enjoyed your upbraiding of Mitch and Kasey ~ They certainly made great spectacles of their massive ignorance ;>)

  • Lori McGuire

    Excellent photo essay as usual El Marco. Your reply to Mitch is priceless!
    Thank you for all the great work you do

  • John Thomas

    There is no common ground to be had with Communists, Socialists or Marxists. Do not try to cuddle up with these people and “Find things we can agree on”. Let the sun shine on this filth and let the world see them for what they are. Their goal isn’t to end corruption, their goal is to get their slice of the corrupt pie and get rewarded for their taking of sides. If this planned Communist movement gets violent and actually grows steam towards anything that resembles “Revolution”, the people in these pictures will be the first ones tossed into the mass graves that always follow Communist revolutions. Useful idiots, all of them.

  • Kasey

    Wow. You really are spreading lies, misinformation, and propaganda. You clearly sought out the people that would fuel your message. The 200 photos I took represent people from all different backgrounds, not on purpose, that’s just who was there: teachers, doctors, nurses, lawyers, military, students, retirees, businesspeople, etc.

    I’d just like to speak on the picture you took with the caption: “More violent thoughts from the highly indoctrinated youth of America. Did you learn that in art school from your commie professors?”

    Normally I leave websites like yours alone, however this is a picture of my friends-oh and me in the background.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with art school, but we are in law school. We are not communists, we are hard-working future lawyers who will all have over $100k in debt by the time we sit for the Bar. I’m sure you will be pleased to know that most law students end up taking jobs in corporate interest as it is the easiest way to pay back student loan debt.

    And violent? One poster is talking about BEAUTY in the streets: civil disobedience, not violence. The second is about stealing… back your HAPPINESS.

    • El Marco

      “Lies, misinformation and propaganda”?

      I’d say that you are the one who is spreading misinformation here. Your friend holding the “Beauty in the Street” sign has drawn a girl dressed in black throwing a brick so your contention that she is advocating “civil disobedience, not violence” is a lie on your part. She is advocating violence, and her sign is known as incitement to violence.

      The other one, with the Paris Hilton glasses, is holding a sign that says “They are taking your happiness. We are the 99%” showing a mob with typical Jacobin raised clenched fists. Below that are the large words, STEAL IT”. Of course, her sign is incoherent. It seems to be a poorly expressed thought, but once again, it depicts a mob, and she’s talking about money being happiness, and stealing it back? It’s hard to say what the sign is saying, but it is definitely more incitement to violence in the form of theft by a mob, which is known as looting. That’s one weird Paris Hilton wannabe.

      My comment underneath, I stand by: “more violent thoughts from the highly indoctrinated youth of America.” I have no idea where these two picked up their penchant for inciting violence, but your friends typify the tone of the crowd, which was led after all, by the anarchists who I photographed at the front of the march and their liberal/Marxist buddies, who seemed to be running the thing.

      Note that this crowd went on to riot into the night and have confrontations with law enforcement. I don’t know how many bricks were thrown though windows or what was stolen, but arrests were made. On the same day in Rome at the Occupy solidarity rally 70 were injured some severely (including 40 cops) and buildings were torched by your comrades.

      I can see what kind of a lawyer you are studying to be: the lying kind. You will have to pay special attention in your LYING: 101 class to hone your skills if you want to be a “good” lefty lawyer… – El Marco

  • It occurs to me that the sort of closed-mindedness and anti-sharing (I hesitate to use the word “selfishness”) sentiment you seem to advocate can only stem from poor parenting and individual bitterness. While I can’t help with the bitterness, perhaps I can fill in where your parents were deficient:

    When you have 3 apples and someone else has no apples and is hungry, you give them an apple. That’s called “sharing” – it’s what good people do.

    If you have 3 apples and someone else has no apples and is hungry, and you do not share, you’re being a jerk – that’s what bad people do.

    The message of the Occupy movement is NO more complicated than that – for those who call it “socialism”, socialism is when the government says “oh, you don’t wanna be equal? tough luck! you’re giving to the poor anyway!” We’re not advocating that because, honestly, it sounds as crappy as whats going on now.

    What we’re advocating is basic person-to-person sharing, respecting other people, helping each other out in a difficult time – a lot of stuff that *we* learned before we were out of kindergarten.

    Call your parents – ask them why they left you in the dark on these ideas for so long – ask them about the thing with the apples – you might be surprised what they tell you.

    • El Marco

      To Mitch from occupydenver.org

      Childish sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, and you’re not very good at it, but at least you are trying. If you bothered to take a look at my web site, and the photo-essays I do, you’d see that I work with the poorest people in the world, and advocate for them.



      Your ad hominem attack about my parents and upbringing indicates the low quality of your character.

      My mother was an intensive care cancer nurse and death psychologist for many decades in the top cancer institutes in Canada. She was a pain expert, and led the campaign to legalize heroin for cancer patients who’d had radical surgery because morphine just isn’t powerful enough. She sacrificed her health and her life to alleviate the pain of others.

      My father was medical officer for the government of Canada in charge of health care for Seven Nations Indian Reservations, which included everything from surgery by satellite communication in the north, to building clinics and toilets for the poorest people in Canada.

      Me, I spent my life creating jobs for the poorest people in Latin America, i.e. Guatemala ten years, and Dominican Republic eight years, as well as Indonesia, Bali for ten years. At least half of the people I created jobs for came from homes with dirt floors.

      In many cases, the jobs I provided were the first jobs anyone in their families had ever had, in any generation. I created permanent jobs, and they still exist today. And how did I do that? By dropping out of high school, (grade 10) working in factories, saving my paycheck, not eating in restaurants, not consuming like an idiot, getting married young and staying married, and then taking the money we saved and creating small businesses (corporations) in a free market system in the third world.

      I employed and enjoyed working and living with people as nice as anywhere in the world and I can assure you they would be disgusted with the Occupy phenom.

      So, as far as your pathetic little sharing apples, you can take them all and shove them up your spoiled brat, unwashed leftist arse.

  • Colorado

    Has there ever been a larger collection of irrational “useful idiot” nitwits in a single place in the history of Colorado? I think not. This is an embarassment to humanity. I thought more of Americans than this. Sad.

  • El Marco – Have never seen your site or your work before now. Very impressive. Thanks for what you’re doing.

  • Had about the same experience here in Seattle, it’s kind of eerie how they are exactly alike, almost like someone is planning the whole thing…

  • Jay

    They might be crazies, but they vote. These are the same loonies that put their loony in the white house.

  • Jim J. Narcy

    Wow. Excellent work. Thank you for sharing. Important work. Keep it up.

  • retired military

    If they want jobs, free health care, free room and board and to get out of their parents basement they can always join the military.

    Oh wait that means they would have to ummm actually work.

  • Hil…Air…E…US!!!!!! I never laughed so hard with my wife in my life! Still laughing. It’s so funny because it is so true! It is sad, however, because those behind the protests and in the protests will never see the stupidity of their actions and thoughts.

  • yum

    Lick that boot! Lick it!

  • TSO

    I think that last lady may be carrying a sign, but I couldn’t make it out.

  • Robert

    FYI, Emilio Zapata was a 20th Century Mexican rebel leader, not a 19th century leader as you have indicated here.

  • Great photo essay, El Marco! Keep it up.

  • Deb in Texas

    If only these ignorant fools knew where this all REALLY started and the consequences of their wish. I hope they don’t get it!

  • Steve

    Love the cab driver: “I’m working, and I’m studying. What do they mean, there’s no jobs?” I have worked two and three jobs to fund my education, my 1st house, and to get what I need. These crybabies should go live in Somalia or Russia for 6 months, and see what real life is like.

    • El Marco

      Steve – You are right. I have volunteered over the years to mentor recent arrivals from the USSR as well as refugees from other hell holes on earth. It is so rewarding to share the opportunities we have with these poor people. So heartbreaking to hear their stories. For the past year I have adopted four Zagawa tribesmen from Darfur who arrived here after five years in a refugee camp in Ghana. After three months they were all working and are now sending money to their mothers living in massive camps near Sudan. We go to rodeos together and I cry when I see them place their hands or their hearts for the anthem and see the tears stream down their faces. I plan to write their story soon. …. m

  • Great report and excellent photos!

    Lots of scum-sucking socialist slugs in Denver! They are all over the place, their poverty and lack of opportunity produced by their own leftwing policies and candidates — but they are too dumb to know it.

  • Dear God, the absurdity of some of these signs is epic!
    The one of a guy in a shirt and tie holding a sign that says:
    “Corporate $ Out of Politics Now… OBAMA BE BOLD!”

    Uh dude, Obama raised $750 Million in 2008 and is out fundraising right now. Where do you think the bulk of that came from and what do you think it really bought? The letter I just wrote is almost a tribute to that guy: Dear #OccupyWhateverStreet http://wp.,me/p14vwx-Mo

    I’ll be including this post in my next ‘Mad Libs’ link dump. Nice work!

  • Monapod

    Thanks for your coverage of the Denver insanity. We saw the appetizer to this banquet of BS here in Madison, WI, last fall. To semi-quote a famous moron, “for the first time in my adult life” I am afraid for my country. Your photos shine light on the darkness stalking our streets – thank you for your bravery in walking into the belly of the beast. May God help us all.

  • All they were asked to do was read Adam Smith, Keynes and Friedman, but noooooooooo. They took too much time with Comedy Central and South Park.

  • munkeysquat

    Good job, would that we all had the drive to go out there and document these things for the people that couldn’t be there. The more we help these lazy entitled children get their message out the more people will see them for what they are. A burden we don’t need to carry.

    Thank you

  • Graycat

    Wow! Great photographs. The caption on the last one makes a great point. Remember “ma bell?” One big communications and telephone mega corporation. It was a monopoly and broken down into “baby bells.” The result was not as bad as doomsayers predicted.

  • PH

    I was in Denver yesterday, one day after these pictures were taken. Saw about 80 people total sitting on the sidewalk, waving their little signs. Guess the rest of them went home to watch the Broncos. Pathetic.

  • I found this via Weasel Zippers. I have been here in the past. This was wonderful. Every photo was great. I loved your comments. Denver has a more photogenic crowd than most plces although SanFran is good, too.

    I would to know their backgrounds. How many are the children of privilege rebelling or red-diaper babies?

  • All those people and their collective IQ level barely reaches 100

  • Paul

    Great photos! Thanks for sharing.

  • Ragspierre

    Excellent job!!!

  • Greg

    White punks on dope…………some people just never grow up and become responsible for their choices and actions. It’s always someone else’s fault. It’s second nature to a liberal because of their inability to admit to ever being wrong. Just look at the Great Odogma, a classic example.

  • Weisshaupt

    Thanks as always for the excellent journalism

  • […] When I read this story this morning in the print edition of the Inquirer, the first thing I thought about were the Occupy protests of last year. The Occupiers, a group consisting largely of college students and recent college graduates, were complaining that there just were no jobs for them. Your Editor noted, last November, an article in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL concerning American students selecting easier majors, despite the prospect of less pay and more difficulty in finding jobs, and we had some fun with El Marco’s pictures from the Denver Occupy rally.
