New York police force out “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators
November 15th morning local time, New York police forcefully cleared out “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators. Clashes occurred between police and demonstrators in a scene of chaos with many people being arrested. At present, it is not clear whether or not there have been any injuries and casualties. New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg issued a statement that day claiming that the demonstrations have already affected the public interest. He also expressed gratitude to the police on duty that day.

In the early hours of November 15th, New York City police initiated its raid, thoroughly clearing out the headquarters of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement in Zuccotti Park in Manhattan. This was the first time the protesters of the nearly 2-month long “Occupy Wall Street” movement have been forcibly removed. During the clearing, about 200 protesters were arrested by police.
During the clearing, several protesters had physical confrontations with police due to their refusal to leave. New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said after the clearing that about 200 people were arrested during the clearing for not cooperating with the police.
After the clearing, demonstrators were allowed to return to Zuccotti Park, but were not allowed to pitch tents or sleep out in the open.

Poor people are poor people, always poor people wherever they are.

I don’t agree on this point. Don’t use this opportunity to defame the United States. Even so-called poor people are not necessarily the same wherever they are. The United States really takes care of the disabled who are unable to work. When it comes to the disabled, city public transportation, long-distance buses, etc. all take care of the very considerately. Therefore, it is simply impossible for someone to become a “poor person” simply by losing their ability to work. Rich and poor are relative here. In certain places, it is however absolute. For example, not having food to eat. Furthermore, the society here is not so snobby like in China, a bunch of Chinese people with only money in their eyes, where “poor people” is a derogatory term that hangs on people’s lips, and where there is no concept of treating people equally, only class thinking and insulting others as one wishes. In history, because the goal in life of certain great artists, thinkers, etc. was not the pursuit of money, they didn’t have much money and were also considered “poor people”, but does that mean their lives had no meaning? With regards to this “Occupy” movement, it isn’t that they don’t allow protest, the main reason is because these protesting people have set up a lot of tents continuously living there taking up public space preventing other people who want to use that park from doing so, because sanitation is bad, and because there can easily be a fire hazard. If you didn’t erect tents and live there like this, I think [the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations] would still be allowed. And there is indeed a number of drug-users who are amongst them. And the method of protest is also not one that everyone supports, and gradually those who don’t support it have already become the majority. Finally, the protestors also aren’t saying they are the poor opposing the rich. They are saying they belong to the vast majority 99% of society, opposing the wrong manipulation of the extreme small minority 1% “elite” that has taken the world in the wrong direction.
Americans are so incredible, where even forcefully clearing out people is called democracy and freedom!
These so-called “Occupy-ers” don’t have their own political agenda, are occupying only to occupy, clearly just a bunch of ordinary people who have nothing better to do than to make trouble. What more, there has been drug-use, rape, and other crimes. What more, there hasn’t been any shooting of demonstrators, nor has there been anyone sentenced to jail.
The daily post commenting guidelines for American running dogs and Japanese-loving scum: 1. Exaggerate without limits the conflicts and ills of Chinese society, then attack the government and lower its credibility; 2. Make the most of China’s social problems to provoke netizens’ emotions, the more intense, the better, and direct it towards the political system; 3. Incite netizens to oppose any decisions, actions, and policies of the Chinese government, increasing the difficulty of governance; 4. Play down to the utmost any achievement by China, even if it is the tiniest amount of progress, and strike to the maximum extent against netizens’ confidence in their country; 5. Belittle the Chinese people as much as possible, striking against the people’s self-respect, to avoid the formation of nationalistic sentiment; 6. Use a negative, hopeless despairing attitude to influence Chinese netizens, making it so that they cannot see any hope; 7. On the foundation of depriving Chinese netizens of hope, strongly talk up America and Japan, making Chinese netizens gradually entrust their hope in America and Japan, to achieve the goals of influence and penetration; 8. Anything positive and any positive comments must be attacked and labeled as “wumao” to separate and divide them from ordinary netizens, weakening the influence of those comments. Finally, we must remember one thing, a China with confidence and hope is unconquerable!!!

Sitting here waiting for the wumao wave [could also be "orgasm"] ^_^
I countries where human rights are fully respected, the people have the courage to express their demands and, even in the face of police, have no fear. Because they know the result. Whereas if the results cannot be predicted, no one would dare go “occupy”.
The operation begins!
Why are those homeless people without work or party-affiliation all dressed so handsomely? Aren’t they supposed to be poor, hungry, and have no other choice, and that’s why they’re protesting?!
No matter how much the media smears the United States, it is still better than China. After all, they can still protest, whereas we can only cheer.
The first person [on the left] in the first photo is clearly a member of China’s chengguan who has gone over to guide the work of forced evictions and demolitions, something America’s police have been longing for and now they finally dare to take action!
Obama and Condoleezza Rice are simply the lowest black dogs amongst humans. And yet there are still so many Chinese slaves who like to go lick and slurp the shit of these two black dogs. Slurping happily. Euphemistically calling it American foreign food. In the past when Grandpa Mao was still around, I was proud of being Chinese. Today, instead I feel embarrassed to be Chinese.
Whenever Americans want to borrow money they can borrow Chinese people’s money. This is too ridiculous, would you lend money to an opponent you want to strangle every day? So wrong, actually taking our money to go fight wars. Hurry and have the government take back our money.
I trust there is no country in this world whose citizens would believe: That a privileged class that lives in high-end residences, drives cars with special privileges, eats specially provided products, sits in luxury office buildings, spends up to a billion in food and drink, has retinue/entourages wherever they go, whose speech is rigid and stiff, whose sons and daughters are all sent abroad, whose assets are not transparent, who are not subject to supervision and accountability, whose powers are not restricted, all day day residing at the top of society, would serve the people. Yet in this country there are indeed so many stupid cunts who believe this, who even support them, truly so foolish as to be unbelievable!
America only supports 300 million people. If it were 1.4 billion people, who knows what life would be like there.
Should’ve been cleared away long ago, this bunch of Democrats are stupid cunts.
American officials always say China doesn’t have human rights, but them arresting people like this means they have human rights?? Americans are complete liars.
What do you think?
