Michael Moore on the pepper spraying of “Occupiers” at UC Davis:
“The images have resonated around the world in the same way that the lone man standing in front of the tanks at Tiananmen Square resonated. It is an iconic movement in Occupy Wall Street history,” Michael Moore declared on MSNBC’s “Last Word” program.
I highly doubt they will resonate in the same way:
The comparison is especially ridiculous for anybody who has seen photos of the aftermath of the Chinese Army crackdown at Tiananmen Square. The Tiananmen protesters ended up in body bags — the protesters at UC Davis just had to pour water in their eyes and they weren’t even late for their LGBT Studies class. Yeah, uncanny similarities.
