The Return of Asshat: Consider Yourself Warned

Posted By on Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 1:30 PM

According to an announcement from Occupy Tucson, Asshat is planing to make a downtown comeback beginning tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the sidewalk facing Veinte de Agosto Park and no, the name of his forum has nothing to do with us. Asshat's been hanging out at the occupy, even participating in the occasional general assembly. Since the Occupy movement is all about democracy in action — the beautiful and the ugly, well here he comes:

(Asshat) will begin his Tucson Weekly Public Forum once again on Wednesday, November 30th at 2pm, on the sidewalk facing Veinte de Agosto Park, to allow Tucson citizens and occupiers alike to voice their concerns regarding First Amendment issues, occupation, the exploitation of America's and Mexico's poor, etc. The public will have access to a loudspeaker to make sure their voices are heard.

A few years ago, (Asshat) had this same forum in front of the main library. But back then, he had a weapon at his side and would have yellow caution tape around a small perimeter where he would speak from within, along with his usual warning of blowing any one's f-ing head off, if they came inside his perimeter.

Within a few minutes, his forum would become a circus as onlookers would begin firing back with comments, and then (Asshat) would start arguing with the local high school kids on the immigration issue.

Don't know what to expect, so expect the unexpected, but it might be interesting to see if you have the time.
