Does a logo that is being used for the Occupy Wall Street movement to promote their “Run on Bank of America” slated to happen today, Friday April 13th, actually contain more than just their stated mission? Does it represents their “attitude” towards society? I think it might.
The logo consists of a street with commonly found stick figures running as one might see on road caution signs. In the middle of the logo, as though laying on the ground, are two red letters with a blue rectangle. These two red letters are “FU”.
Though it might be conjecture to think that the “FU” letters stand for FU## YOU, it wouldn’t be outside the realm for which OWS stands. Their deep seated belief that the world (everyone that is not one of them) owes them something because they aren’t working and because they don’t contribute to society (except to provide jobs to the police and security forces that have to respond to their public disobedience) this seems to be their attitude towards authority and those who are productive citizens of society. In other words, ”FU## YOU”.
Further digging reveals that going to www.fthebanks.org is exactly what they are saying. They believe that because they couldn’t afford loans, couldn’t make the payments, and that the world “owes” them something because their homes were foreclosed, that they should inflict their pain on others who are doing something to better themselves. Here’s a video promoting this event…
At one point the girl on the couch tells the bank manager that they are there because the Bank of America took their homes, which gives obviously gives them justification for setting up home in the BOFA lobby. Banks don’t take people’s homes. Banks take back what they own when the person who took the loan and committed, by signature, to pay it back or allow the bank to receive ownership to cove their expenses. Simple society transactions that have gone on for thousands of years in societies all around the world. However, OWS followers don’t think it should work that way.
It would be great if these “community activists” actually realized that what they are doing is not helping society at all. They are just pawns being used in a society game of chess for the soul and direction of this country. Most people with the FU attitude believe that the world is against them and they have to “fight against the man”. This attitude is a common retort. When one allows their anger to coalesce with their apathy to provide for themselves the manifestation is what we are now seeing in the OWS movement.
FU. And if I can’t have what you have, then I don’t want you to have it either.
The OWS puppets are screwing themselves because they don’t see or choose to grab ahold of life and do everything in their power to make the most of it. They claim to be the 99%. In reality, they are such a small minority in America trying to scream the loudest to look the biggest. I for one say to them, “grow up, grow some ‘nads, and man up”. Do something for yourself. No one owes you anything. So, if the FU is what I think it stands for, it is directed right back at OWS’ers.
Maybe OWS should stand for Occupying Whining Simpletons?
