A blog about Learning, about Education, about transformation, about change, about youth voice, about democratic human centered education. I am trying to ask the question "Why we educate" and what my answer means to me as a teacher and how my role shapes society and the whole.
Mark Meckler (Tea Party Patriots co-founder): They’re not law-abiding citizens. They’re camping in a park where camping isn’t allowed. They’re breaking the laws on the Brooklyn Bridge. That’s not Tea Party behavior.
Jon Stewart: Everything you described there I believe is a misdemeanor. The actual Tea Party was a fucking felony. Do you know who the Tea Party actually was? Do you know how much trouble you’d get in if you broke into a ship, stole the cargo from the ship’s owners and just threw it overboard? Not to mention the EPA fines and the damage it would do to your Indian costume? The Tea Party namesake - you’re named after the most celebrated act of theft and vandalism of private property in our nation’s history! And you can’t stomach a little park camping?

Reblog even if you don’t plan on it so someone else can!
Thank you. :)
(I’ll be posting talking points when I return from the bar.)
I edited this to make it more rebloggable.
Meet NYPD Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna, former Commanding Officer of the First Precinct and a leader of the violent brute squad who maced a group of unarmed, nonviolent women during the Wall Street protest.
I love that his name is Tony Baloney. How perfect is that?
Here is a little puff piece on him.
My name is Kelly Schomburg, I’m the girl with the red hair in these pictures. I was protesting at the Occupy Wall Street march yesterday when I and several other women were sprayed with mace and subsequently arrested. Many have already seen the video, which has been spreading like wildfire over twitter, Facebook, tumblr, and other video feeds, along with hundreds of other photos and videos. This is my recount of what happened.
How is it that an NYPD lieutenant — or someone ranked higher — has essentially been cleared of assaulting protestors with pepper spray simply by having a police spokesperson say that the incident was justified, and that the pepper spray was used in response to “something that was edited out or otherwise not captured in the video” that has since gone viral? Why aren’t the news media asking Mayor Bloomberg or Police Commissioner Kelly exactly what it was those women did that warranted being corralled and assaulted like animals? And who was the cop? There are media here on Tumblr who should be asking these questions.
