Good job shoehorning an OWS blast into a totally apolitical story about a guy trying to kill himself.

Got a green, even.

I thought we didn't have a border fence.  That's what the derpers keep whining about.

Ambivalence: I thought we didn't have a border fence.  That's what the derpers keep whining about.


It's pretty patchy in a lot of areas. A lot of it is vehicle barriers, which I think is the most we should do, the walls are ugly and ineffective. Our southern neighbors have invented something called the ladder.

From the comments: Fortunate that he did this on our side of the fence, lest he get hit repeatedly with sticks.

Unless some hippies score some easy trim among the protest groupies this protest is way stupider

Ooh don't make fun of the inept OWS protesters because...reasons and liberalism.
 
2014-07-15 05:16:46 AM
Weird, if he wanted to go straight to hell, he could have just jumped the fence instead of hanging himself from it. Although, his method was a little more permanent. Maybe he was just thinking ahead.

Yep. Nothing political about the influx of illegal immigrants.
Stay tuned for the non comments about Obama, or Teabaggers, or Libtards.

It was completely ineffective but they went to great lengths to shut it down and still talk about it.

Attempted suicide? Some how the rope got loose? Nope. He saw someone approaching, improvised, and knew they'd take him to a hospital in the country he wanted to be in. Now he can plan for an escape as he "is treated".

He was about to get caught and came up with a way to still possibly find his goal. Kudos.

Man tries to hang himself from the US/Mexico border fence in the most bizarre, ineffective protest since Occupy Wall Street Operation American Spring.

Edited for reality.
 
2014-07-15 08:42:28 AM
Shoulda left him hanging.

Buzzards gotta eat too, ya know.
 
2014-07-15 08:54:11 AM
According to the Desert Sun, the man, who has yet to be identified, was taken to El Centro Regional Medical Center by paramedics.

Uh, whom do you suppose will pay for his medical care?

If he would have hung himself from the other side of the fence what do you think would of happened?

Just saying...

Occupy was mostly just pot smoking college kids trying to hook up and get traffic to their Etsy store.

I was trying to google that OWS protester who had on Armani jeans and was carrying an apple laptop; yeah down with the 1% while you wear those $190 pants and overpriced laptop!

Yep, how are we supposed to take them serious that there is a wealth imbalance if they're not dressed in rags like a bunch of bums that should just shut up, get out of the way and work harder?

I'm sure people said the same thing about Engles as he and Marx were writing their manifesto. And when Siddhartha left his palace. Just because someone has money doesn't mean they are oblivious to the problems in the system.

So we're just going to let slide the false equivalence between someone who has a laptop and nice-ish jeans and a VP of Bank of America?

You suck at arguing.

All these. OWS may have been only slightly more effective than chicken soup for the flu, but it moved the needle enough that we can say the following:

Mitt Romney LOST. HARD.

This guy was killing himself, you retarded ghoul.

OWS is the reason why we're even talking about inequality in this country. They changed the terms of debate - the summer before the Republicans were shouting down everything with accusations of "class warfare!!"  Which was suitably ironic, in itself, but after OWS the American media was actually talking about the 10%, wealth gaps, and problems in wealth gains and distribution, leading us to Piketty, etc.  OWS may not have changed the world, but they changed the terms of debate.

/why do I bother?

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: OWS is the reason why we're even talking about inequality in this country. They changed the terms of debate -


Yup. Probably the only reason these things are now being discussed at all. Remember that HUGE FARKING ECONOMIC CRASH we had a few years ago? Oh yeah--those guys. Those bankers. Forgot all about them, it's been so long. They're all still making millions stealing our money, but because of OWS, we're still talking about the issues that they exemplify.

/Oh, they didn't "do" anything? What have you done lately for the good of the human race?

Haha, whoa, I think you just claimed that OWS made us only talk about the issue instead of, what?  Going in with tanks and guns or something?

As for the rest, I can't help you.  Guess I haven't done anything to help the human race.  *kicks a can*
 
2014-07-15 01:20:28 PM
Occupy would have been really effective if 1) anyone outside the protest knew what the protest was about and 2) they put someone in charge, even a five year old whose hippie grandmother dragged him there
