Occupy Portland Worships Golden Bull On May Day - YouTube!


I do not get it. They are fat and they can not dance. What is the point? What are they trying to do? Is it s reference to the Israelites? Why are they trying to dance like Hindus?

Well it looks like a performance piece, and I would guess that the bull is in reference to the Wall Street bull in lower Manhattan.

Do they realize White Supremacists link the Israelis worshiping a Golden Calf to the stereotype of Jews having a love for gold and money?

Is there an actual bull in lower Manhattan? I always thought that was an advertising prop.

I probably could, however given the rest of your post I don't believe that you have the correct mind set for me to put in the effort.

Is it obvious to any one else that there are some who will do anything to discredit Occupy? ... Other than actually debate any of the actual issues they brought to the fore front.

Well they are clearly not there for the aesthetic of dance, so presumably they are trying to say something but if no one can figure out what it is, what is the point?

I have never heard that before and I am sure there are many of other people out there that have never heard that before. It is impossible to know about every stereotype in the world.
