SCENE: News footage of Occupy Boston protestors getting manhandled by police comes on screen, patrons at American Legion bar smirk and shake their heads.
Bartender: Ya’know what these clowns want, do yah? Socialism! Socialism is what they want!
Patron 1: As fah as I’m concerned the cops kin arrest as many’a’em as they like…
Bartender: 140 people got arrested last night! All ov ’em: Wellesley, Weston, Dovah, Sudbry, Conkid, Linkin… They were all white! Every single one! 140 people! Not one African-American! Not a single minority arrested!
Patron 2: It’s not like when we was protestin’ back in tha ’70s.
Bartender: Yeah, well then it was Vietnam! Now, they got two wars goin’ on, and yah know what they’re whinin’ about this time? Money! They had a survey on the news th’otha day askin’ how long these protestis should be allowed to stay on tha Common. I say let ’em stay as long as they like. Theah’s’no way this protest’ll sahvive a Boston wintah.
