Oh, Good Grief… #Occupy LA Goons Shut Down Burger King (Video)

No justice… No peace… Hold the pickles.

The Occupy LA goons marched into Burger King and started chanting “Shut Down Burger King.” Yup. They’re just exactly like the tea party.

What a lovely group. They’re just like you and me… The 99%.

Hat Tip Mara

Honestly, is there anything about this group of hoodlums that makes you want to stop what you’re doing and run down to Burger King and join them?

Related… Three Occupy Boston protesters were arrested at a Burger King this weekend.

    What did they think ?
    That they can have it their way….?

  • Keep it up, goons. Eventually even your lying allies in the leftist media will no longer be able to cover for you.

  • Were they all wearing them stupid paper crowns that BK gives out to the kids ?

    You know like the ones Stymie and Moochie took from BK three years ago, so they can role play on date nights……

    Only burger joints, that’s racist lol

    This is what the reality TV generation does when Jersey Shore isn’t on?

  • Bill Mitchell

    Apparently Burger King should give away free food. However, it is unclear exactly how Burger King would buy said food or pay their staff that serves it. Oh, I know, just print their own fake money – that was the OWS idea, right?

    The politicians have sufficient disturbing the piece laws to stop this,,,Burger king will probably get a fire marshall citation for locking the doors preventing escape from a fire.

  • Jim, I have an idea for a contest. How about suggestions for the next event, groups, or locations that interruption would cause these punks to get a good smack down!

    The Occupy Dopes will be the first to starve to death when Capitalism falls and the Commies take over.

  • OWSCarl Nitwit Extraordinaire

    I was there. The benevolent protesters were just wanting it “their way”—free! How dare the corporate slave, aka employees, charge peaceful cosmopolitans needing a gratis meal in order to sustain them during an arduous demonstration. Hold your bourgeois pickle, Burger King! Resist we much!!!

  • BarbaraS

    I remember several years ago Al Sharpton nattering on and on about Burger King needing to contribute to the community. Where do these people come from? Burger King is a company out to make money just like all businesses do. If they don’t make money, they die. Sharpton won that round just to keep the peace. Burger King contributed I believe $50,000 to Sharpton’s coffers. Why in the world would they be required to give any of it back? Something for nothing is the goal of the entitlement crowd.

  • zmdavid

    Obviously it is just a problem with the name of the place. Maybe if it was “Burger Community Organizer” they would have left it alone.

    These people are good for nothings…. A waste of time….


    They need to shape up or ship out… hmm.. Maybe we should bring back the draft just for them

  • OWSCarl Nitwit Extraordinaire

    I was there. It was a glorious event, shouting slogans provided by the Burger Committee, and perfoming our down twinkles hand gestures for Burger King’s refusal to give in to our collective demands. The Ministry of Hunger will be scheduling many such demonstrations across this greedy capitalist country.

    Zerobama’s Sturmtruppen in action at their best. Clear the Streets for the Occupy Battalions!

    The Barack Obama Lied (Die Fahne hoch)

    Flag high! Ranks closed tight!
    The Acorn Troopers march with bold, firm step.
    Union enforcement battalions
    March together within our ranks.

    Clear the streets for the Acorn battalions!
    Clear the streets for the Union men!
    Millions already look hopefully up to the Messiah.
    The day is breaking for hope and change!

    For the last time now the call is sounded!
    Already we stand all ready to fight!
    Soon the Obama banners will flutter over the streets.
    Our enemies won’t last much longer!

    Flag high! Ranks closed tight!
    The Acorn Troopers march with bold, firm step.
    Union enforcement battalions
    March together within our ranks.

    German original

    Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
    SA marschiert mit mutig-festem Schritt.
    Kam’raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
    Marschier’n im Geist in uns’ren Reihen mit.

    Die Straße frei den braunen Bataillonen.
    Die Straße frei dem Sturmabteilungsmann!
    Es schau’n aufs Hakenkreuz voll Hoffnung schon Millionen.
    Der Tag für Freiheit und für Brot bricht an!

    Zum letzten Mal wird nun Appell geblasen!
    Zum Kampfe steh’n wir alle schon bereit!
    Bald flattern Hitlerfahnen über Barrikaden.
    Die Knechtschaft dauert nur noch kurze Zeit!

    Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
    SA marschiert mit ruhig-festem Schritt.
    Kameraden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
    Marschieren im Geist in unseren Reihen mit.

    Approximate English translation

    The flag high! The ranks tightly closed!
    SA marches with a calm, firm pace.
    Comrades whom Red Front and reaction shot dead
    March in spirit within our ranks.

    The streets free for the brown battalions,
    The streets free for the stormtroop man!
    Already millions look with hope to the swastika
    The day of freedom and bread is dawning!

    Rollcall has sounded for the last time
    We are all prepared for the fight!
    Soon Hitler flags will flutter over barricades
    Our servitude will not last much longer now!

    The flag high! The ranks tightly closed!
    SA marches with a calm, firm pace.
    Comrades whom Red Front and reaction shot dead
    March in spirit within our ranks.

    Wasn’t it Jefferson who equated democracy with mob rule, hence the founding fathers created our nation as a republic.

    Every day the founding fathers look smarter!

    btw.. these folks will bring back many old time things… middle ages diseases, middle ages education, middle ages employment, middle ages economy,.. maybe even the Crusades (from the other side)

    “Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either [aristocracy or monarchy]. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”

    The quote is from John Adams.

  • RWS

    The last time I was in this Burger King, which is in Oakland, everyone behind the counter was Hispanic. And it seems to me that we haven’t seen many Hispanics/Mexicans taking part in this whole Occupy business. Which leads to the question…..what do these people, who have had to leave their home countries in order to find rather crappy jobs, know that we don’t know?

  • Nahanni

    Reaganite Republican,

    Taco Bell is owned by Pepsico.

    Pepsico has an Indian President and CFO named Indra Nooyi that hates America and has said that “America gives the world the ‘middle finger’.

    They are also one of the Obamamessiahs biggest corporate whores. They even changed the Pepsi logo to make it look more like the Obama ‘zero’.

    No, you won’t see them hassling Taco Bell, Pizza Hut or KFC anymore then you will see them camping out in front of those “1%’ers” Michael Moore, Jeff Immelt, George Soros, Ted Turner, Teresa Heinz-Kerry, etc. homes.

  • Heather

    Looks like a good place for the cops to practice marksmanship with their tasers. Sure would make the video more entertaining.

  • Burt

    I usually try to withhold judgement until all facts are in. Possibly this particular Burger King was so presumptive as to offer one of them a job.

  • Brian

    Oh boy, look at all the holier than thou conservative douchebags commenting on this story. Yes, let’s go shoot people for protesting. I’m sure you won’t mind when somebody starts picking off Tea Party members at the next rally, will you? You all need to get your heads out of your asses.

  • SoCal Stoli

    Hmmmm….what was the name of that fast-food (non-pizza) operation that HERMAN CAIN helped return to profitability?

    Had something to do with burgers and royalty, if I recall.

    Not that the protests would have ANYTHING to do with that! /cynicism off

  • crypticguise

    Wow, I thought the OCCUPY jerks were white IDIOTS. I guess this is an equal opportunity STUPID-FEST. Black Idiots want it “their way” and FREE. Jackasses!

  • Brian, thanks for that report from the Brain Dead Trust.

    If the protesters were mad over Burger King’s idiotic commercials (particularly that freaky king guy with the big plastic head) I might have a little more sympathy.

    No, on second thought, the way to protest a food chain’s lousy commercials and/or irritating management is to not buy their stuff. Hey, I think I’m onto something here………………

  • ripcity

    Hey Brian, when you find all the links where the teapartiers rioted, raped people, trashed property, pooped on cop cars, fought with police, attacked old ladies and got busted for drugs, then post those. In the meantime stop being a douche and a hater.

  • RebeccaH

    Honestly, what’s their beef with Burger King?

    And can they demonstrate any more laughable hypocrisy than by eating a burger and slurping up a soft drink while marching around with their signs?

  • Ed

  • Constitution First

    Øbummer’s union goon squad. Had enough “Change”?

  • RWS

    RebeccaH……their beef with Burger King is founded on the fact that this Burger King is right accross the street from their little camp. The next closest fast food place is at least a half-mile away….and that’s a long way to walk.

  • Alana

    Well. That was certainly . . . pointless.

  • WillofLa

    Where are the cops? Why didn’t this manager call the cops and have these scum bags removed? Instead of closing his business he should have called the cops. These cities mayors need to tell the cops that they do not work for their unions. And because if the unions want to support the protesters because all these other unions are, then the cities mayors need to have some way where they can force the cops to do their jobs, and not do what the unions want them to do, and that is get to the Burger King as quickly as possible just like any other crime scene and deal with the problems there.

    Why didn’t the 78 year old woman who was pushed down the stairs at the American’s for Prosperity meeting have the police called? Were they called? And if they weren’t, why not? The cops are going to have to realize who pays their salaries, puts money into their pension funds, provides money for cars, weapons, training facilities, and every damn thing else they have and are. They work for us, we don’t work for them nor do we work for city hall, and neither do they. The people of Oakland need to be calling the mayor’s office and demand that he run these people out of town, and I don’t care how he does it. If he locks them up in a tent city, I don’t care.

    I’ve reached my limit! I am a combat vet and I only know of one way to remove a threat and that is with combat. If these bastards think they’re tough and can go around pushing 78 year old women down stairs and that’s how brave they are, then lets see how tough they are pushing them down stairs. And if these SEIU thugs come out, attack them to with whatever means we have at hand. And if they think the purpose of these protests are worth more than their lives, then they ought to be ready to happily give their lives for their cause. Do you think their wives and families would appreciate it if their husbands never came home because they are doing something for Obama that was a lie, and wasn’t worth giving their lives for? They need to think about it. I just don’t see how much longer we can take this. It’s not like we’re surrendering, it’s we are tired of the interference and seeing and hearing about it when we know Obama is behind it all. We need to go after him and demand that he resign now!!

    Hey brian (#41), they were not protesting, they were illegally occupying a private business and disrupting that business causing it some measure of financial harm while also depriving private citizens the goods and services being supplied by that business.

    I do not recall any Tea Party rallies doing anything like that at all. The Tea Party groups had rallies at locations they acquired proper permits for and maintained their own security. They did not “hang out and squat” at a park and riot when they did not get their way.

    Your statement could not have been more wrong had you tried. Your rights end where mine begin. This was not a “protest”. It was an illegal occupation.

    “At some point,” I think we need to come to the realization that we are the police force which we have been waiting for.


    lucky for them it’s cali…here in fla we have the right to carry and defend if we feel threatened, even in a public place. not seeing too much of this idiocy were i live. an armed society is a polite society

    So Burger King shut down and all the employees with rent, college, food etc expenses were sent home with no wages for the rest of the day! Hopefully these idiots will alienate many of the people they claim to represent!!!

    What were these customers thinking about during the interruption of their “fast food” meals. Why didn’t some patriot American stand up and shove that stick up that worthless kid’s butt. Oh, I forget, all the patriots are busy leaving Californication or are working their jobs and have no time for this crap. I would love to do it, but I would have had to use an equalizer because of my age and physical condition. Sam Colt was famous for manufacturing equalizers.

  • therese

    It looks like the guy in the Cardinals Hat (woo hoo) is in line to buy food. I am glad he was not part of that ugly mess. Love the old guy reading the paper. I would throw up my food if I had to witness that incident, preferably on the chick with the mega phone. What a hoot that would be..

  • max

    Once again the 99% acting like 1%ers. (1%er is a term used by some of the Hell’s Angels and other motorcycle gangs to describe themselves.)

  • Victoria

    Why were the police not called? This was not freedom of association or freedom of speech, it was a riot, where guests of the retaurant and employees were being intimidated and threatened. Moreover, this was private property, not public property. The sidewalk in front of the restaurant was public property, but inside the door it is private, and they were trespassing. The owner had the right to ask them to leave and if they did not, to ask the police to get rid of them for him. Why don’t the owners of these businesses realize that they do not have to put up with this? Where are the police? Oh, that’s right, the police sympathize with these idiots and therefore don’t have to do the job for which we pay them. Fire every police officer who refuses to do his job in this situation.

  • These fools should be arrested for their fashion sense alone. Tell them to go occupy a union hall. These idiot occupiers are all being duped as this movement is merely the labor union’s grab for power.

  • I have an idea. I am tired of this crap and its cost to taxpayers. Let’s a bunch of us get together and go kick some occupier ass! Now wouldn’t that be fun??? Time to take things into our own hands people. These idiots claim to be against oppression but every headline and film clip I come across shows theme either oppressing others or infringing on SOMEONE ELSE’S first amendment rights. I all for getting them to occupy hospital beds at this point!
