SF Protesters to Obama: Please Be a Dictator!

November 26th, 2013 - 10:59 pm

Fundraiser #2: The San Francisco Jazz Center

I then hustled at top speed down to Hayes Valley, to keep ahead of the official motorcade which was sure to follow soon. I already knew from previous intelligence gathering that this second event was to be the main focal point for the day’s protests. Even so, I was seriously underwhelmed.


Maybe a hundred (to be generous) anti-Keystone Pipeline activists from Credo.com gathered across from the new San Francisco Jazz Center and chanted their usual conspiracy theories about fracking and “climate chaos.” And I will note that making a photogenic pipeline to protest the creation of said pipeline is not the right way to go about it. Since protests are based on magical thinking, when you create a visualization of the thing you hate, you’re unintentionally bringing it into existence.


But it’s the freelance protesters who are always the most entertaining.


Great artwork; incomprehensible message. One out of two ain’t bad.


Obama’s #1 fan in the whole wide world was screaming obscenities at the other protesters for daring to criticize his god.


Wait — “the 99%”? Occupy? Those people still exist??? Apparently there are still a few of them on the loose, if this guy is to be believed.


The Killer Pipeline will create Climate Chaos!!!!!!!

I’d only been there a few minutes when the motorcade arrived — on schedule, for once. If you watch carefully, you can see the presidential limousines pulling into the Jazz Center’s parking garage between 0:22 and 0:37 in the video. As you’ll hear, the protesters greeted Obama by chanting “Stop the pipeline!” over and over, until one guy breaks the monotony by reversing the chant with “Pipeline stop! Pipeline stop!”


Remember how over at the first event, the Secret Service ensured that no one had “the high ground” overlooking the venue, for security reasons? Well, for some reason, at this event they allowed a clutch of wild-eyed protesters to occupy the roof of a building towering many stories over the Jazz Center. Why these people were given a pass and deemed harmless, I could not say.


I had seen online that Code Pink and World Can’t Wait had also announced their intent to protest Obama at the Jazz Center, but they decided to stake out an entirely different corner, so as not to be overwhelmed by the Keystone Kops. Big mistake. Without a larger group to dazzle the eye, the truly pitiable tininess of the anti-drone protest was a sad spectacle. Not counting passersby, there were about nine or ten Code Pinkers and World Can’t Waiters, combined. Their own members couldn’t even be bothered to come out and protest against the president.


Pretty much the entire Code Pink contingent.


As usual, the wildcat protesters had the best signs.


Whatever your politics, you gotta admit: That is how to make an effective protest sign.


There was one — one — person protesting against NSA (and IRS, etc. etc.) surveillance. This should be the biggest issue of all, but for some reason it never caught hold as a protest topic. Perhaps because everyone concerned about it is too justifiably paranoid to show their faces at a public event.


I returned to the Keystone protest, but they were still chanting the same goddamn chant, ten minutes later. Get me out of here! I took my own advice and left.

As I did so I encountered a group of guys eating lunch on the corner, discussing how the White House had to drop the price of the fundraiser tickets because they weren’t selling. I managed to capture a few snippets of their bronversation.


On my way to the next event, I passed an art store on trendy Hayes Street that had marked Obama’s arrival with a window display of a 2008 poster commemorating his election. Kind of telling that they had to retreat into his pre-failure fantasy beginnings, back when he still had promise, and hadn’t become such a big disappointment. Sort of like a traumatized mother who still displays a school photo of her smiling 14-year-old cheerleader daughter — who is in reality now a 30-year-old meth-addicted stripper. Denial.

Obama sees the polls plummeting, knows that Republicans stand to make huge gains in the elections for Senate seats...and knows that Obamacare being forced down people's throats AND NOT WORKING AS PROMISED...is the Achille's Heel to implementing small c communist tyranny.

So, he invents a play....where he "opposes" someone who asks him to be a small c communist tyrant...and he replies..."we have checks and balances, a Constitution,....and I'M behind them as a way to govern...or at least won't circumvent them"

This is a stage play for fellow Democrats running for office.

And...the Propaganda Machine to fill the airwaves with his devotion to it.

In the cascade of lies and fraud...this is the "pushing stone" to get the lying message out to the knee pad troops.

Of course it was staged. Would Obama share a stage willingly with someone who wasn't already part of the scam? It's a con game, the guy was in on it. There is no other theory. Grifter Government playing three card Monty and the shell game with their marks and pigeons.

Believing deportations should end is pretty much the same thing as declaring every person in China a U.S. citizen. Despite claims from this bunch that the GOP is the KKK, it is groups within the Dems that practice naked racial advocacy for themselves as well as hate-speech about the "white gaze" and "white privilege."

After the Trayvon Martin trial you saw a lot of stuff on blogs and Twitter about laws being made for white people. Anyone who actually believes that certainly has no use for the Constitution. Obama himself seems to see the Constitution as some kind of niggling technicality.

Are Dems dangerous? Any group of people who are brutally stupid are dangerous.

Again the compliant press allows this man to present false visions and prevarications without any challenge. When they thought Bush was being too theatrical in joining the troops at Thanksgiving they howled like banshees. Here we have staged protests "obvious to the casual observer at an infinite distance" and nobody raises a question except for Z. Reasonable people no longer have a chance in this country as long as all info is filtered thru the lens of the MSM.

The KKK, Bull Connor, Gov Wallace etc etc were all Democrats. As was the slave holding South. History, look it up.

The protest-droids on the rooftop say it all - no way the SS would allow that unless ordered, and ordered hard.

Me, I prefer Opera to Kabuki.

When Wolf of CNN suspects a planted heckler, it is now common knowledge.
Hecklers are in the back of the room, not behind the President. The guards would have been on him in seconds and third, Obama was prepared with a speech. He is usually bumbling and mumbling at such activities. Truly a Plant.

Another point I'd like to make is that the focus should not be on the "protestors"
but on the organizers OF the protests. How close are they to the White House.
As Zombie points out these protestors, especially the heckler Ju Hong, seem to be bought and paid for. Astroturf, indeed. One could dismiss this as political dirty tricks but depending on what happens, especially in the area of immigration, this is getting to close to the line.

Does this remind anybody of the Reichstag fire of 1933/34(?)

A friend of an acquaintance asked on Facebook before the shutdown, "Can't the President just suspend Congress?" I chimed in, "Only if the Capital burns down." I'm astounded how many liberals have no idea what the Constitution says. When it was Bush/Cheney, they decried the tyranny that was not actually tyranny and now they beg for tyranny because they like how Obama looks in a suit.

I am almost disappointed that there weren't any anti-Israel signs. Eh. Good report as always, Z.
