The ego's on these people.

I get it. Times are tough. Brutal even. UNBEARABLE. Bill Whittle said this all very well HERE.

These misdirected spoiled-brats are desperate for meaning... a cause... a revolution for our generation. They will stop at nothing in their futile attempts to convince us (and mostly themselves) that they are fighting the good fight. That they are morally righteous. That they are the shining light of the brave new world. That they are Pillars of Virtue!

I suppose this all works on them and people like them. Much in the same way that young girls actually believe that they are royal princesses, these people believe they're incarnations of Che Guevara [you remember Che- he's the guy who was purported to say "Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man." but actually said, "Do not shoot! I am Che Guevara and worth more to you alive than dead."Anderson, Jon Lee (1997). Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life. New York: Grove Press. ISBN 0-8021-1600-0.) aka "same thing" to a Liberal.] and other legendary freedom-fighters of yore.

Let's face it- revolutions are a lot less interesting when you know the truth. Especially revolutions by Liberals. It's easy to tell stories of greatness when you're witnessing the actions of great people. However, when the people acting are incapable of the selflessness, courage and strength of character which are requisites of real heroes, they're forced to make things up (all in the name of advancing their ideologies, of course).  As we all know though, the truth will always come out and they'll be exposed for the fools that they are. Just not to other Liberals or the MSM. They've already moved on to greener pastures... fresher stories.... the new black, etc.

You might think that their motivation is moving on (no pun intended) and letting go but it seems to me that it's more about sweeping their mistakes under the carpet and hoping that nobody notices. They'll admonish you for "living in the past" while ignoring the fact that if you can't acknowledge your mistakes, you're doomed to repeat them.

It's this lack of foundation and this lack of permanence that bothers me most about Liberals and people like them- they will never build anything of worth, they will never accomplish anything of merit. They only "keep busy" and spin their wheels on endeavors which amount to nothing but make great bragging-material with which to impress their friends at cocktail parties. I can't think of anything less "noble" than that. Except perhaps, renting a fancy car to impress old classmates at your 25th high school reunion.

Nevertheless, Occupiers continue with the self-aggrandizement with garbage like this:
"Iconic image of martyrdom"? Ridiculous.

Here's a commentary on the topic from Facebook:

"Well in the same vein that you can't cheat an honest man, a peaceful protestor doesn't experience police brutality. It's always the ones who don't see the line who cross it. I'm not suggesting that anyone sit idly by and do nothing. I'm just suggesting that the ones who go out and get their heads bashed in are praying for that result so they can prove their dedication."

 Well said. Personally, I suspect she didn't know what she was in for. I suspect that in spite of numerous warnings, she and the people with her figured "hey- what's the worst that could happen?" While all the people who were actually paying attention backed off and listened to the directives of the police, she and the others stood there and got taken by complete surprise and instead of feeling the normal emotion of discomfort, shame and embarrassment, they feel heroic. 

Of course, their crowd is so desperate to join the ranks of true heroes that they automatically reinforce this ridiculous idea.

Well, their "lack of foundation and permanence" might bother you but it doesn't bother me a bit.

The thing that "bothers" me about liberals is they can never carry through with their "plans" without involving me (and by extension, my money.)

All their ideas involve me. They all revolve around getting the government to steal more and more of my freedom and money. And, no matter how much the government steals and spends and regulates, it's never enough ... ever.

Precisely. They spend my money on their latest fad so we end up with a closet full of bell-bottoms, nehru jackets, and leisure suits. I wouldn't mind so much if they had any sense at all and bought stuff with my money that I actually wanted... that ANYBODY actually wanted... but they never ever do.
