Outnumbered 4 to 1, The “99%” of #OccupyDenver Gets Mic-Checked…
...and a Lesson on Republican Democracy
After the “occupiers” of #OccupyDenver tried to occupy FreedomWorks’ BlogCon (blogger conference) mid-day on Saturday, before figuring out the hard way that a half dozen grimy squatters are really fodder for a hundred or more bloggers armed with cameras and derision for their up-twinkles, the occupiers tried to play their hand again early Saturday evening.
Unfortunately, for the occupiers, when the 99% realized they were out-numbered four to one, their demands diminished significantly–in fact, after inviting the BlogCon attendees to attend their general assembly, #OccupyDenver was mic-checked by BlogCon (at 2:25).
Then, moments later, the “occupiers” were schooled on the difference between mob rule and Republican Democracy:
Shortly after this, they quietly went back to their encampment. [Quietly slunk away may be applied here.]
