The Man - 1, NYU Hippie Protesters - 0


The above video is the local authorities at NYU breaking up some "Take Back NYU" protest, which was about free trade bagels or sympathizing with Hamas terrorists or some bullshit. They had occupied one of the campus buildings, and there's a hilarious video of these youngsters getting strongarmed by the police. Nothing will bring a smile to your face faster than seeing self-righteous college kids living off their parents trust fund get the cold slap of reality.

I believe you're wrong, Nixon. This was probably a "Free Mumia" event.

I was hoping the police were going to take out the billy clubs and give out some 'wood shampoos'.

These people need to get some new ideas. This whole thing is so 1968. I'm surprised "The Age of Aquarius" wasn't playing in the background.

How pathetic. I mean, it's good that no one got hurt, but maybe the police should have tossed a little tear gas in and give them something to really complain about.

Jesus,

I just read their History and FAQ sections. It's such an unfocused, hypocritical, and hilariously ironic jumbled mess, that I decided it was not worth my time to respond critically.

Dude, you go to a private educational institution. No one forced you to go. Legally, a private institution owes you NO accountability unless you are a shareholder, which, you are not. Goddamned hippies.

since i'm an NYU grad, i tried real hard to think of something i could say to defend these students, or at least stand in solidarity with them, but i came up short - they're idiots. their demands were unrealistic, illogical, and disorganized. they should stick to what they do best - reading ginsburg and smoking clove cigs on the street corners. better luck next time, hippies.

You should have been in Seattle during the WTO riots. There were so many competing protesters it was rediculus. People dressed up like whales, lobsters, then there were the even more fringe groups that just came from wherever to bust a Starbucks window out.

Where are teh rubber bullets when you need them... strung in belts of 200 and ripping out of the end of an M-60. Seriously though, free trade bagels are tasty but since they started the "save the salmon" protests you can't get any decent free trade lox anymore.

As for the "hilarious video" you hae a gift for understatement. I love the part where he says "excuse me, excuse me, you may not come in here... this is students' free space". God I love it when hippies get the backhand of reality across the face.

You sir, are a god for this post.

God bless the hard-working NYPD.

I just read the comments in the NYU link. To the great credit of the commenters they hammered the hippies.
