Was it wrong for people to criticize Gerry Adams? (or was it suicide not to?)


Were people wrong to  criticize Gerry Adams? Because, philosophically, I feel the same vibe sometimes from the Black Bloc. Visiting their homes one feels a sudden feel of bohemian revolutionaries- except, they never wear tie-die. And bohemians wouldn’t kneecap people. That is as likely to happen as a dehydrated man surviving by dragging his limp body up to the edge of the Curtis Brick fountain! Chief Iron Eyes Cody and Quatchi just cried…

Is Vancouver to become Belfast? Canada is one of the few countries in the world where the police are so widely co-opted to the movement. This is a magical gift.

Let me compare one of my long-term followers- Alex, a hero of the BlackBloc movement.When I say follower, I mean follows my every word through facebook, twitter, blog. I’m sure the googleVerse has records of it somewhere. He keeps his eyes on me more than a 9 year old at a screening of Porky’s at a BlacBloc party.

Abbie Hoffman said that the first duty of a revolutionary is to get away with it. Alex didn’t- in fact, he was super-proud at getting himself extra time. Meaning, keep it on the safe side of the grey zone and it won’t cross the line if you lose balance. Abbie is pissed-off he had to die before our party began- because he wrote the fucking script!

Getting arrested means less soldiers on the field and more in POW camps. I regularly survey Canadians on violence. David Andrew Beattie Remember when David Morningstar and I did an experiment? Ruth Meta was not present at the moment, she was busy making ad-hominem attacks on Facebook…

David felt that it is reasonable to expect a Canadian would advocate police violence against OV. So we grabbed the first person who came beside us and asked the question I asked the gangs of city candidates- is it reasonable to use riot squad tactics against Occupy Vancouver?

The only person I’ve met who seriously agreed it was reasonable was already under police surveilance for threatening to de-occupy. Like Michael Madlove said- “He was most likely to be a lone gunman“. I miss that guy shame he got started drinking from paper packets of Kraft sugarmix drinks!

So, for one to be at an Occupy initiated event and antagonise anyone would be the least friendly thing could do to a fellow soldier. We are soldiers of love- from our conception. One reason we did this was because if we let ourselves hate, outside forces can own us and lead us to self-harm. If our movement must pull razor blades over our arms then we cannot succeed in a healthy way.

When people take liberties to break our social contract- our whole movement must halt and fall into defensive positions until the issue is sorted. Without this trust the Black Bloc are not respecting our goal to try first we have a peaceful revolution.

If the Black Bloc believe anyone could ever win using ad-hominem rhetoric, they need to stop and look deep into their souls. I’m still on the fence about their intentions- that said, there are people who are actively manipulating in ways that hurt us.

To steal an Idea I saw about Anonymous is something like “we are chaos- if we don’t know what we are doing nobody else could either! This was from the Facebook page of an intellectual soldier.If you watch MASH on re-runs you will get the gist. I sometimes wonder if Anonymous was created using part of Abbie’s soul.

So, let me restate once more- politely and with the expectation that you will think deep about it. Our organization’s soul is based on the love of many generations who came before us. Some people are mechanics, some rocket skaters, some join CSIS and some do cartwheels at #OccupyHarper. OccupyVancouver is the latter- I think @Occupy_Police used the word goofballs about their take on the movement.

You may notice I’ve embraced my inner-goofball the past week- our global movement’s core values are directly under attack. It would be to expected that any free-mic love in will attract people who have not yet bought in. It is our job to get them to buy-in, to co-opt them with love, friendly explanations, healthy debate, and a future based on a shared set of values.

At Occupy Vancouver is a Canadian movement- and people here are some of the most co-opted to love of the people in any nation. In places like Russia, it may take decades to co-opt the police. Their police have few people with the aptitude to be Kitsilano socialites! And too many would feel uncomfortable with the lack of violence executed at a religiously run abattoir.

I can’t help but believe it is not only disrespectful, but also wreckless to do anything to provoke the police. Please tell me if there is a third- but I’m guessing  good examples would be building Fukushima and forgetting that we should respect our social contract.

Every Occupier is a tag-along, as is every black bloc. For us to disrespect past revolutionaries efforts by letting the front line fall due to semantics and wanting to be right- each inch is a pint of blood. None of us have the privilege to cause even 1ml more blood fall. Anything else is #autogenocide.

After the past two months, I have lost all faith in a ninja’s ability to keep their emotions up to the standard of an Occupy Soldier. This is the attitude that will make us strong. When we are strong we look scary- that is the point where even the asshole pigs who killed Robert Dziekański. If it wasn’t for political correctness, Seargent Argent would use the phrase “asshole pigs” for them, I’m pretty sure.

I will not fight you with weapons, attacks on your family #TickyTacky or emotional manipulation that could cause serious harm. I use a non-lethal weapon that can never do as much damage as a flagpole. They call it parody- eventually, you will either give-up or start laughing again.

Look at my story where @Quatchi (who secretly loves @RichardBranson) had a threesome with @MayorGregor and @AdrianDix on a @VirginAtlantic @UpperClass Bedroom. The ninja angle is coming soon…

A Love Letter To David Eby…

In response to A Love Letter From David Eby:

Hi David,

I’m sorry to insult you- but, this letter appears like it was written by a lawyer, not by a human being. Your letter was technically elegant, but completely lacking soul.

1.) Your Class of Travel to Prince George:

The 1% hate public transit. If their plane is ‘in the shop’ they may have to degrade themselves by flying on the same plane as the unwashed huddled masses. Down at Bohemian Grove, their most beloved ghost story is about being stuck on a Dash-8 on a flight to Prince George.

So, yes, there is no Business Class on regional flights. Thank you for correcting me on that one- you would have probably out-scored me on the aptitude test for joining the 1%. One must know these things if one is to be able to be accepted by them. Lol

2.) Your Location This Weekend:

It is good to hear you made it up to Prince George. The name of the place is a bit of a misnomer- if there were a prince there, one would be able to get themselves a bottle of Pimm’s from time-to-time, don’t you think? You lucked out with the Bread Garden plonk!

Was there something big happening up there this weekend? Because, I’m worried you didn’t come to the convention this weekend. Yes, it is tiresome to dress-down all weekend for ‘oh ye brothers and sisters‘, and it can be tiresome singing working-class songs from New Jersey– but, the huddled masses do like it, and that is the only way you will get elevated to become our benevolent leader!

3.) Alcohol Consumption

I have no doubt you enjoy a nice bottle of wine, we all figured this out back when we met you. I’m sure you had the largest collection of empty bottles in your whole frat house. And, once you moved over to Point Grey, it would have been gauche to continue bringing home a two-four. Would be just way too 99%…

I had hadn’t thought about #RiceWine before I wrote you the last letter. I asked someone who knew more about the DTES than I what was the local tipple. There were a couple choices- I chose #RiceWine over Listerine because I didn’t want to be promoting an undeserving company’s brand. But, you forced my hand on that now.

The reason for doing this was to point you looking into a mirror. It made me uncomfortable thinking that someone who is blindly labelled a ‘True Hero’ of the DTES would tweet a complaint about the fact he is fortunate enough to afford something better…

4.) Your Delayed Flight

Were you able to determine if the mechanical failure was something that was in or out of control of the airline before you disparaged their name? Could it have been a manufacturing issue- a bird hit? I certainly hope you don’t treat your butler that way- or, you may find him spitting in your kippers!

The airline business has had a rough decade– and their workforces have been at-risk of layoffs for many years. Can I beg of you to please be extra-careful next time you speak out against them? After all, the little people need their jobs- right mate?

5.) Mr. Rosenberg

Thank you for updating us on your choice of words. From the some of the things I’ve read about you on local Vancouver blogs, I’m certain you and Mr Rosenberg will hit it off big. And, since he flatters you, if you spend some time flattering him- you just may find yourselves together one night enjoying the pleasures of a Virgin Atlantic Upper Class lavatory. When the time comes for that, make sure you hit-up Mayor Gregor, he has pretty good connections at Virgin…

6.) Sexism

It is comical to read your complaints about political correctness. You are this ‘world classMother Theresa of a lawyer, and you had so little to throw at me that you correct my political correctness in a satire piece? Oy Vey!

a.) Had You been the one hiring Mr. Rosenberg, and the quote was attributed to Christy, the tagline would have been interchangeable. So, it was in no way specific to gender.

b.) The picture of Christy’s cleavage was linked to the SunVinceTai– did you complain to them? Besides, it was more a commentary on her judgement. By choosing the wrong shirt, the world was distracted from what was going on in her head (or not). A cliche at best. I expect my Grand Puba to be more on-the-ball…

You walked into that one so blindly- it deeply pains me to think you could actually have fallen for it! Did you know the word gullible isn’t in the dictionary?

7.) Bitchslapping Horses With Lawyer Cream Pies

Once again David- satire! You forget, I am probably Occupy Vancouver’s most prominent pacifist! And, I am most certainly the person who gets the most threats from ninja-clad barely pubescent angry young men. Have you been so absorbed correcting my language use that you forgot the purpose of my request?

I have been trying to tell you that the #BlackBloc have been hurting our progress here at Occupy Vancouver. I’ve not been asking you to help ‘me’, I’ve been trying to ask you to help ‘us’. Because, this sort of behaviour has been partly responsible for dropping OV’s public approval rating from 60% to 29% (at last count).

So, you really have me confused. You are afraid that I am unstable and potentially violent for asking you to help denounce violence at Occupy Vancouver? Do you not see how absurd of a statement you are making? Did you really think this through? Or, perhaps, you just don’t have a sense of humour?

Please re-read the subtitle: “Or, virtual cream pie hits Eby- Gregor & Quatchi hit with the splatter.” I just spoke to Quatchi, and he figured it out pretty quickly. He nearly blew my ears off howling when he read it!

8.) Ninjas

You have addressed a lot of things in your letter- but, not a single mention of your position on the appearance of the Black Bloc at Occupy Vancouver. This leaves me incredibly disturbed- you are supposed to be better than that….

Why the omission? Are you trying to punish me because my article didn’t adhere to the rules in the politically correct style-book? Or, did it just hurt too much when I mentioned the possibility of Christy & Rosenberg starting a physical relationship?

What could have I done that had been so important it over-rode your contributing to the success of humanity’s greatest ever opportunity to achieve universal civil liberties? If this is a temper tantrum you should be ashamed!

Sincerely,

– Greg

Civil Liberties Czar Endures Cheap Airport Wine! (Or, virtual cream pie hits Eby- Gregor & Quatchi hit with the splatter)

#FirstWorldProblem

Intrepid renouncer of Ninjas and defender of DTES civil rights David Eby had to endure drinking Bread Garden wine after his flight was delayed. This presumably coming home from what he reported as a trip to Prince George.

In his anger, he publicly shamed a great airline by broadcasting a picture of his “keeping it classy with bread garden wine” while waiting for his delayed flight- one can hope that he confirmed the delay was as a result of the airline and not weather, air traffic or other external factors. He may be at risk of losing his Elite card. It was unfortunate for Mr Eby to face such a challenging first-world problem.

Fiddlesticks! This one could be highly independent!

It is uncertain if Mr Eby coughed-up his wine when he read the tweet from the Globe & Mail’s Iain Bailey- who announced that Christy Clark had to a different country to find a trusted head police investigator.

Yeah, I she probably sleeps with him already!

I cannot confirm David was feeling catty about this announcement in his choice of the word Flattering. We will need to wait on his response to clear-up the question.

Gregor Robertson cozies up for threesome with Quatchi & Branson

While Dave Eby drops tears into his glass of Rice Wine, he realizes he is not well enough connected to the 1%. Had he been cool enough to hang out with Branson, he’d probably be contemplating his place on Virgin Atlantic’s inaugural flight in 2012. It is unconfirmed, but one can assume there are good odds Robertson will be Flying in the Upper Class Cabin.

I’m hopeful Virgin will include beds on this route- the optics will prove real life is more bizarre than art. And, with Eby on the flight- there is a possibility for a foursome! Joining the Mile High Club together will be easier this way- though, Richard Branson has been quoted saying his employees are not the type to “bang on lavatory doors when a couple slips in there“. It is unknown if Quatchi can fit in an Upper Class lavatory…

If David can’t get on the flight- or, Quatchi doesn’t fit in the lavatory, they can always sneak into one of the many empty suites at the Olympic Village. Quatchi has some fond memories there with Sumi and Miga. (link may not be safe for office).

Prince George does not have a Maple Leaf lounge, so it is unsure which cabin Mr. Eby was seated in. Please let us pray he had the dignity of a business class fare. A question is out to Mr. Eby to confirm.

There were no cell phone recordings of police violence during this incident- nor were any Olympic mascots or stallions pleasured or cream pies thrown.
