What good is a Day of Rage without any rage? Then it’s just a day. Days are boring!
Thursday’s “National Day Of Rage” planned by the hacktivist group Anonymous against the Aug. 9 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. failed to materialize in any remotely significant way.
Anonymous had called for a protest in 37 cities…
A smattering of dedicated protesters showed up in front of the White House, demanding the arrest of Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot Brown…
Downtown Tampa saw about 30 protesters. Maybe 20 people showed up in Denver. The scenes were about the same in Boston and Baltimore.
The edge of downtown Des Moines saw about 20 protesters hoisting signs and holding up their hands, reports The Des Moines Register.
Same deal in Oakland, Chicago, Spokane… even St. Louis. Guess the death of a criminal who attacked a cop isn’t as outrageous as they thought.
The nice thing about being Anonymous is that when you fail, and fail really really hard, nobody knows who you are. Thank you, Guy Fawkes masks!
I can’t hear “Day of Rage” without thinking of this song from Misfit Politics, back when Occupy was still a thing:
Aw, leave ’em alone. Down-twinkles!!
