Spanish Protest Turns Violent

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Sadly the social unrest that we had predicted, when over 50% of the youth are unemployed and the politicians are navel-watching, has erupted, as angry protesters charge the local police, who in turn are arresting rioters and using volleys of rubbers bullets to keep the crowd at bay.

I am surprised the Spanish police have not joined the protesters due to the fact that they just protested pay cuts 2 months ago.

I guess some sadistic bastards just like stomping skulls.

It reminds me of Oakland last year. Police pensions were decimated by the city yet they were still out there bashing the heads of OWS protesters.

Deer Dance - System of a Down lyrics

Circumventin' circuses
Lamentin' in protest
To visible police
Presence sponsored fear
Batallions of riot police
With rubber bullet kisses
Baton courtesy
Service with a smile

Beyond the staples center you can see America
(Lalala lalala lalalala)
With it's tired poor avengin' disgrace
(Lalala lalala lalalala)
Peaceful lovin' youth against the brutality
(Lalala lalala lalalala)
(Lalala lalala lalalala)
Of plastic existence

Pushin' little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around
Pushin' little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around

A rush of words
Pleadin' to disperse
Upon your naked walls, alive
A political call
The fall guy accord
We can't afford to be neutral on a movin' train

Beyond the staples center you can see America
(Lalala lalala lalalala)
With it's tired poor avengin' disgrace
(Lalala lalala lalalala)
Peaceful lovin' youth against the brutality
(Lalala lalala lalalala)

(Lalala lalala lalalala)
Of plastic existence

Pushin' little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around
Pushin' little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around

Push the world around

A deer dance, invitation to peace
War starin' you in the face
Dressed in black
With a helmet, fierce
Trained and appropriate for the malcontents
For the disproportioned malcontents
The little boy smiled, it'll all be well
And see the little boy smiled, it'll all be well

Pushin' little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around

Pushin' little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around
Pushin' little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around

Push the weak around
Push the weak around
Push the weak around
They like to push the weak around

Just wait to see what happens in America when they take social security and medicare from those who paid in to it.

Most of these countries in Europe do not have guns like we have here. That's why they have armed guards at the SS office now.

I have even been told they have dudes with riot gear at unemployment offices.  OWS will seem passive if they steal

Social Security from those who earned it. It will be interesting to see, for sure. Yachts, horse dancing and jets for those

who will and can party in Greece, France, Asia, and the Tropics. The rest will be a combat zone. Unbelievable. 

Depression II for sure.  Never thought I would see it here. But hey. We had a ten year war that was never paid for. Check please.

Agreed.  The EU experiment is a huge failure in that they have denied themselves the ability to do what Bernanke and Geitner do - buy endless debt by creating endless money from nothing and forcing interest rates to zero.

Japan has done it successfully for years.

No, it's not.

This is nothing.

Until snipers start putting bullets in the heads of the elites, nothing will change.  Until bullets start generating blood flow, this is just a bunch of people talking loudly in the street.

Insignificant.

It doesn't matter if the thought is horrifying or if you advocate it.  It's just factual.  Demonstrations can't change the math.  Bullets can because the math arbiter can be killed.

If you look at the 3rd pic down I think the cops are going to have a hard time putting down any serious rush by protesters.  Once stripped of batons and gear, they're going to get mauled.  I think it's only a matter of time before the protesters resort to the type of violence your vid portrays. Once they cross that line, shit gets really bad for the baton twirlers...

I don't much blame the baton twirlers. Historically, they are the key to the whole situation. When the military/police split and begin to turn against the regime - and they will - then the revolution/civil war is on. It'll work the same way in Amerikwa.

Hell Motocross gear would be helpful or even shin guards strategically placed.  You can tell by the dress of the police that they are looking for violence, the protestors were not.  Enough of these videos should get the protestors in gear.

My company was entertaining a Spanish visitor last year. My boss and I were trying to decide how to show him a good time in the off-hours. I provided the winning idea, and we took him shooting. The guy had never picked up a gun prior to that, and he had a great time.
He was a smart man. If he didn't see that practical value to the hobby before, I'm sure he sees it now. Best of luck to the Spaniards in resisting the NWO.

When it comes to the capital markets I am a complete and total cynic and fully admit it. I wish more than anything that the market would finally expose Bernanke and the rest of TPTB. It is funny I watched it before basically go bidless for a few mins but as usual, someone decided that was enough of a correction.

What I don't want is a slow implosion that erodes most of my adult life and the people around me. I fear that is what we are going to get. This big crash moment never happens but the world just becomes a shittier place by the day.

It's funny I think a cynic today is someone rooting for the status quo and trying to rationalize it to me. I appreciate the tip with your daughter by the way. I do still enjoy the day and I will make that list as well with my daughter. Great idea and thanks for passing it on.

Sometimes Pods after you've been here long enough somebody eventually gets pissed off about something you say and they junk you no matter what. I just accept them for what they are... Badges of honor.

No, it was me. I am offended nobody gives me credit for being $anta Clau$. I even have a beard and an pet mutt named Jamie who, every year, leads me through the fog of truth to arrive at...???. Jamie, the bald-faced liar. There's even a song about it.

"Jamie the bald-faced liar,

had a very annoying look

and if you ever saw him,

you would know he is a crook..."

I love that song

This social unrest may seem as serious now, but surely all these people will barely remember it in the future.

Mainly 'cause most will probably die from malnutrition, as well as lack of medical care, for a prolonged period of time.

Its coming folks.  You can feel it, see it, smell it, taste it.

This is what the PTB fear the most.  It is a revalation, an eye opener for those who are not clued in.  The masses will awake without us giving signs or help.  They will know when they cannot put food on the table.  This game is almost upon us.

Roll the fucking dice  bitchez.

"when over 50% of the youth are unemployed "

youth unemployment is apparently not 50% but actually much lower:

That article must have been written by someone who was not part of the 50% unemployed, probably an economist. 

If there are ten million young people looking for work and only five million of them finds a job, who cares that there are millions still in school?  The unemployment rate for those looking for a job is 50%. The 50% that can't find a job are angry. In the video there were only a few hundred.  SHTF when they get organized and all of them show up.
