Occupy Orange County's Irvine Protest Inspires Lefty Slogans
|Huge lefty crowd in Irvine chanted their belief that they "will win"|
That's not surprising given that the diverse crowd of perhaps 1,000 people consisted of unapologetic Marxists, anti-communist advocates, Ron Paul Republican fans, mainstream Democrats, students, Lyndon LaRouche loyalists, union members, and Oath Keepers.
Here's a sampling of the messages carried on handmade placards, bumper stickers or t-shirts:
--Robin Hood was right.
--I'll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.
--Stop corporate greed now!
--I don't have a lobbyist so I made this sign.
--Get big business out of government.
--Tax the rich!
--Communism isn't cool.
--Wake up! You are being entertained to death!
--We're not from the left; we're not from the right; we're from the bottom and we're coming for the top.
--Time for an American Spring.
--The only good investment banker is an investment banker in jail.
--What would Abraham, Martin and John do?
--Hang George Bush.
--Corporate money out of politics.
--Democracy is not a spectator sport.
