I’d like to think I supplied the “intellectual foundation” for these folks:
[Can we all get those t-shirts?]
Dozens of demonstrators dashed into the Loop building housing President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters this morning, slipping past security guards and running up escalators as they kicked off what they called a “Week Without Capitalism.”
Eight protesters were led out in handcuffs about half an hour later after they refused to clear the lobby. They were cheered by other demonstrators who began dancing and singing folk and gospel songs.
After about 30 minutes marching and singing outside the building, the group tried to enter the building and reach Obama’s campaign offices around 8:30 a.m.
Guards locked the revolving doors, but protesters slipped through unlocked doors off to the sides. Some pushed past a security guard who tried to block their entry but quickly gave up as protesters poured through the doorway.
Like Elizabeth “Lie-a-Whoppuh” Warren, however, be careful whom you clutch to your bosom:
Jerica Arents, from the Rogers Park-based White Rose Catholic Workers, said some of the demonstrators had come from across the Midwest and would be joining NATO protests throughout the week. Arents said demonstrators are committed to remaining non-violent.
“We see NATO as using up a lot of resources in the city and the world,” she said.
Okay, they’re a little simple-minded—but no violence, no rape, no defecation. I’m proud to embrace these child-like creatures as Bloodthirsty Liberal’s Children.
