Occu-turf as union stiffs get paid to join OWS protest against Romney

NY’s resident citizen photojournalist Urban Infidel is at it again, documenting the latest OWS outbreak in the Big Apple. This time around, the Occupiers attempted to crash a Mitt Romney fundraiser today, but were rebuffed by security and had to settle for an outdoor march:

What makes this report particularly noteworthy are the photos Urban Infidel captured of bored-looking union members arriving at the protest where they were signed in by union reps – undoubtedly so they could pull a paycheck for their day’s astroturfing. Or should I say occu-turfing in this case.

The Left is apparently struggling to find an effective angle for criticizing the milquetoast stand-for-nothing Romney, because they had nothing better than “Romney Kills Jobs” as the theme of the protest. While the narrative lacks accuracy it makes up for it with good visuals:

And no protest is ever complete without a ludicrous and self-defeating misspelling.

Expect the union/anarchist/socialist convergence to pick up steam as election day nears.
