Auburn football fans coming to the Florida game will get to “War Eagle” members of the Occupy Auburn group we told you about last Friday.
The newly formed offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement plans to distribute literature at its second “General Assembly” in Ross Square on the Auburn campus starting Saturday at 3 p.m.
A poll posted to the group’s Facebook page asks members to vote on “possible clothing items that would help us stand out from the tailgaters
One person selected “All The Above”—like the song.

They’ll create their “literature” on a iPad or Mac, print it out on an HP printer, they’ll drive their GM (running on BP gasoline) down to Office Depot to get it copied (on International Paper stock), and tape up samples with Scotch 3M tape.
And I’ll thank them for contributing $2 per flyer to the economy.
And when the “literature” ends up in the trash – Waste Management Inc. will get richer hauling it off.
I’ll just laugh at their silliness and immaturity. And laugh. And laugh. And laugh.
Dang. Well ok…
I suppose they should quit school and use their cash to start new companies which will manufacture phones, and paper, and ink, and jet-fuel, and lord-knows-what to get their message out. But then the argument would be “oh see you had to do just what the companies you are against did to get your message out.”
We are all hypocrites. They’re is nothing new in that. Get used to it, and please chill.
Why do you have to bash Auburn folks? They are speaking for something they believe in. Be it religious or philosophical… get behind your diversity or please, with all due respect, find another forum.
That being said.
War Damn Eagle
I ditto the comments of bd. Let’em have their say. We all need to remember that no matter how much we believe something… we could be wrong. Of course that works both ways.
I’ve always found the First Amendment the most difficult for people to support and understand. If you were to point to one set of rights that has caused the most controversy, emotion, and direct conflict in our entire political history, it is the First Amendment.
To me it is an indication of just how important it is to all of us.
You can disagree, deride and disclaim their arguments as you see fit. I may or may not agree with all they have to say. But to imply they shouldn’t gather and speak or that they need to be stopped by force will cause me to cross the line and stand with them.
Who said anyone should stop them by force? They are being much more vocal whining in public than we are on here about them. How is YOUR act of asking us to stop complaining about them any less offensive than THEIR original public/vocal complaining?
Interestingly enough, I heard on the radio yesterday about a couple of folks who went to the Occupy Wall Street area, attempting to QUIETLY stand near the crowd but with signs saying maybe something like “Unions are job killers” or some other non-liberal slogan, and the Occupy Wall Street protestors began violently screaming curse words at them, SPITTING ON THEM, threatening them, etc.
In other words, most people are only interested in free speech that agrees with their opinion. And they will ironically and vehemently attack the right of others to disagree.
**Correction** I meant to say, how is YOUR act of asking us to stop complaining about them… any less offensive than any of US making fun of THEIR complaining.
As I’m sure you know “complaining” and “making fun of” are different. So it’s not more or less offensive, it’s confusing.
To Green Room Tiger:
This has nothing to do with communism; and furthermore, do you really know what communism is; in it’s ethos and tenets? I won’t make assumptions about you, but I get the inkling that you hate just about anything you find different.
GW, thanks for making Walkers point for him and me. Have a nice day.
Just as walker said, the people doing these protests only care about rights as long as they get to have them.
@GW its all about communism. Look at the majprity of interviews done on these protesters, they want capitalism gone so they can have their “fair share”. There’s is a reason that so many drug addicts and the like are showing up on wallstreet. These parasites on society are yes, fully able to protest anything they want, but when they are the majority of those demanding their “share”. I’ll admit the later bush year policys are what started this horrid economy, but its been obama’s socialist policys that have caused the largest downward turn. Point being if all these people would be proactive and find a job instead of spending weeks causing unrest and support a presidential and congressional canidates which have positive economic ideas we would all be better off.
Yo taboo17. I think you are on drugs. You hippy.
I’m just being diverse and speaking about something I believe in just as the Occupy people have their right to do so. So get behind diversity or please, with all due respect, find another forum
And with that being said War Eagle, Beat Florida!
Auburn in the clear! War Damn Eagle Forever!
