Well here’s a little anecdotal assholery for everyone!
Following in the footsteps of pretty much every major Occupy encampment in the country, Occupy Philadelphia is facing eviction tomorrow at 5 pm. Philadelphia police officer Mark Sidebotham found it prudent to post this photo to the Occupy Philadelphia Facebook page, with the note “5 o clock [sic] is coming.”
When faced with some questions as to whether a police officer should be antagonizingand perhaps even threatening the protesters in such a public and lowbrow manner, Sidebotham retorted “there [sic] just hating on my freedom of speech.” As people pointed out that freedom of speech does not make one immune from criticism of one’s speech, nor does it protect one from repercussions from one’s speech at the workplace, Sidebotham responded to one poster, “you used to many big words for me to uinderstand [sic] chief.”
This came to my attention because an old buddy from high school, who is currently quite the radical, left a particularly scathing response, which I will end this post by quoting in full:
Pathologically speaking, the sort of people who take time out of their day to repeatedly try to antagonize others through the internet, especially those like Mike who tend to devolve into homoerotic suggestions, are generally similar to the sorts of people who jerk off on chatroullette and then go out gay bashing. It didn’t make him feel enough like a man to join the military so he joined the police. That still didn’t help him forget his little dick so now he strokes it by trying to be a bully. Bullies are by nature cowards, and bullies like Mike are by nature deeply repressed about their own desire to be someone’s bottom.
Don’t worry, Mike. I’m sure we’ll find you someone nice to break you in.
