Mr. DaTechGuy & Blogcon meets the Occupy Denver movement

Around 2 p.m. with my under the Fedora way behind I left the main room to sit in the hall, both to have some time to write but also because I was aware that the Occupy move­ment was plan­ning to raid our area and I fig­ured they would be com­ing early to say hello.

Some­time around 2:30 or so we noticed by sign and scent some peo­ple who looked very “occu­py­ish” and started snap­ping pictures:

One cou­ple didn’t like pic­tures being taken the women cov­ered her face and they ran in the Ele­va­tor, I found it very funny as they pushed but­ton after but­ton with­out know­ing that the ele­va­tor needed a key card.

Once it became clear that the tar­get was the con­fer­ence room the two Stephens took action Crow­der was Hor­atius at the bridge and Kruiser who had just two hours ear­lier called him self the Gan­dalf of the Tea party posi­tioned them­selves in front of the door as to say; “You shall not pass!” At this point came the “engage­ment” if you can call it that:

Mean­while Tony Katz in a side room was doing the Dana show as a guest host when a dif­fer­ent Occu­pier came into the room and placed him­self in the pro­duc­ers seat. it was a rather young kid and Tony tried to explain to him that the chair was not his and he just couldn’t get it. When things got loud over in my neck of the woods he left on his own accord but got into a scuf­fle with the police than ended in the only arrest that took place.

When the attempt to get in fail­ing and the occupods look­ing fool­ish they con­tin­ued out­side. I tried to engage a few of them Jason con­sented to an inter­view and I con­vinced a sec­ond occu­pier named Tony to sit for a few minutes.

It is my opin­ion that this is the real dan­ger for the occupods. If the peo­ple who are not hard­core pro­fes­sional activists are sep­a­rated from the crew and can be rea­soned with and engaged (on areas of agree­ment and dis­agree­ment) it human­izes us and shat­ters the illu­sion that has been cast. That more than any other rea­son should cause them pause.

I hear the Occupy folds will be back at 5. I will have more updates and video as band­width permits

I inter­viewed a 2nd mem­ber of the occupy movement:

And there was a civil con­ver­sa­tion between Lisa of Free­dom­works and Tad of the occupy movement:

Once they left the MSM came and inter­viewed peo­ple. I talked to a young lady from the Den­ver post and filmed the MSM inter­view­ing Tabitha

and Tony Katz

all was then quiet.….until 5 p.m.

Update 2: some­how mis­spelled “Den­ver” too busy rush­ing to get it all up

Update 3: Yid with Lid’s take and now the sequel

and an Insta­lanche!

Update 4:

Update 2: I’m so tied up in the news for­got to plug our Novem­ber fundraiser in full swing. if you would like to help keep DaT­e­chGuy going strong please con­sider sub­scrib­ing at any level or kick­ing in if you can.

Around 2 p.m. with my under the Fedora way behind I left the main room to sit in the hall, both to have some time to write but also because I was aware that the Occupy movement was planning to raid our area and I figured they would be coming early to say hello.

Sometime around 2:30 or so we noticed by sign and scent some people who looked very “occupyish” and started snapping pictures:

One couple didn’t like pictures being taken the women covered her face and they ran in the Elevator, I found it very funny as they pushed button after button without knowing that the elevator needed a key card.

Once it became clear that the target was the conference room the two Stephens took action Crowder was Horatius at the bridge and Kruiser who had just two hours earlier called him self the Gandalf of the Tea party positioned themselves in front of the door as to say; “You shall not pass!” At this point came the “engagement” if you can call it that:

Meanwhile Tony Katz in a side room was doing the Dana show as a guest host when a different Occupier came into the room and placed himself in the producers seat. it was a rather young kid and Tony tried to explain to him that the chair was not his and he just couldn’t get it. When things got loud over in my neck of the woods he left on his own accord but got into a scuffle with the police than ended in the only arrest that took place.

When the attempt to get in failing and the occupods looking foolish they continued outside. I tried to engage a few of them Jason consented to an interview and I convinced a second occupier named Tony to sit for a few minutes.

It is my opinion that this is the real danger for the occupods. If the people who are not hardcore professional activists are separated from the crew and can be reasoned with and engaged (on areas of agreement and disagreement) it humanizes us and shatters the illusion that has been cast. That more than any other reason should cause them pause.

I hear the Occupy folds will be back at 5. I will have more updates and video as bandwidth permits

I interviewed a 2nd member of the occupy movement:
