As the title says, a nativity scene was set up at Occupy D.C. and the video above depicts some of the protester's reactions. I found some of them rather annoying and was interested to see what The Pit's take is on it. Is Christmas really still a big deal to people?

They obviously just interviewed the crazy ones... makes for a more interesting youtube video.

At the guy with the "fuck the police" hat.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

I don't get why this is even a big deal. Yep, there are stupid people. Yep, there are smart people. Some people are offended, some people are OK with it.

Wait... the Occupy protesters aren't saints who are after everybody's best interest, including my own!?



Honestly, I'm not surprised -- the movement itself has never been dominated by moderateness.

The protesters really need to calm down. I don't twist my testicles every time I see a menorah or something. Even if it is a government related protest, some of the people there are pretty offensive on their own.

Goddamn hipster phaggots ruining the message of occupy.
The lake was silent for some time. Finally it said:
"I weep for Narcissus, but I never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful. I weep because, each time he knelt beside my banks, I could see, in the depths of his eyes, my own beauty reflected."

"Alright, the 76%, and what about the other uh, the other 10%?"

Also I love the wiseman with his own three gifts about halfway through.

I'm not even christian and I don't get what's so offensive about this. It's not like they're there wishing ill will on anyone or they're forcing others into the scene - they're doing the exact same thing the Occupy protestors are, taking place in a public area, camping out, and sending a message. I personally don't agree with all of it, and whether or not you do is your own prerogative, but it's harmless and innocuous, I don't see why they're getting whiny. What are they doing that's so offensive?

There were only like three peeps complaining anyway.


I'm aware - I never said a specific number, I just said "they", implying the people who got uppity in the video.

I think they were just scrambling for the nearest opinion on something unusual, but pretty inoffensive. Maybe partially because they were being interviewed and thought they'd better say something. I doubt anyone was actually offended.

This.

The guy's a self-professed "conservative," do you really expect him to seek to represent a movement like Occupy honestly, or purposely target the most drugged out weirdos in an attempt to discredit it?

On an issue that's got shit all to do with the movement's aims, I'll add.

Oh, I wasn't directing it towards you; I was just saying, in general. 'Cuz when you get subhumans posting things like "fuck occupy fags hurrr," it's important to bring them back to reality.

I think if you interviewed enough people about a nativity scene in any situation you could always get enough negative comments to fill a video.

That being said, fuck the people in this video, whether they're part of the Occupy Movement or not.

EDIT: Ha, just got to the wise man. That was pretty nice.

I'd think it's clear you don't give a fuck. However, based upon the rest of this thread, some people do give a fuck. Some posters find it offensive. Some posters are ok with it. But most people in this thread seem to give a fuck.

Personally, I find it somewhat telling of the pulse of the Occupy Movement.

And, for those who think they clearly only interviewed the "crazy ones", maybe you should watch at least 30 seconds of the video. Seems to me that there's a decent showing of several occupy members who are ok with it. One woman even got a picture with the two actors.

Doesn't mean one should insult Christmas. You might hurt someone's feelings, after all.

Sure she does. It means you don't have the right to peacefully express your religion in a public arena! What is this, Iran?

Oh dear god! A nativity scene at occupy wallstreet! What horrible people would exercise their first amendment rights and practice their religion in public.


But srsly guys how is this any different then when fox gets all bent out of shape over a governor calling a christmas tree a holiday tree? Stop getting upset over stupid shit this time of year.

They have a nativity scene up in a town here in Texas in front of the town hall building that the Freedom FROM religion group is suing over to get taken down. They say it's infringing on the separation of church and state..which is stupid.

Why can't people just, ignore religion if it makes them so angry? Why completely destroy it from the public eye?
