The always-awesome Matt Labash has some on-the-ground reporting from the Occupy protests at the New Hampshire Republican primaries. It’s almost sad how far this once-mighty people-powered protest has fallen:
Here, a good four-fifths of the Occupiers’ park is utterly unoccupied. The General Assemblies are poorly attended, and when one Occupier is asked to help break down tents, he claims he’s suffering a hip pointer. When asked to draft volunteers instead, he refuses, saying that’s “excessively hierarchical.” The “Puppets and Power” theater is lame. The “Dance Party of Awesomeness / Emma Goldman Tribute” plays dated rap music from the early ’90s. Nobody seems to know what time the flash mob starts.
You should, as they say, read the whole thing.
