    Anti-Tech Protesters Target VC With Vulgar Flyer

    Anger toward the tech upper class continues to simmer in the Bay Area. We've seen multiple protests against the Google Bus, and in an incident that happened just last week, protesters vomited aboard a bus for Yahoo workers.The tension revolves around the high cost of living and the argument that tech millionaires and billionaires are driving up the cost of housing and destroying the Bay Area's traditional quality of life.
    The latest incident targets one tech employee directly.
    Digg founder and Google Ventures partner Kevin Rose published an Instagram with the message: "My house was protested today by anti-tech folks, they had a large banner saying 'Kevin Rose Parasite' handed these to my neighbors."

    Several reports of this incident have made the news, all trying to re-categorize the protesters as something other than leftist OWS types. This is not far different than the discussion on another thread concerning the Mozilla exec forced to resign.

    What are your thoughts as to this type of bullying by the extreme left?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    This might be a good illustration of the downfall of the left in America. They've been so actively buying votes from the masses with hand outs for decades this illustrates no matter how much you give the entitlement class they will always demand more. The left may one day figure out they can't print up enough money to keep up with the entitlement groups demands.

    Nothing in this story says left other than right wing paranoia. I dont see the problem here.

    if they spent half the time working and investing as they did protesting then they might be in better shape.

    last time i checked you didn't earn anything protesting.

    We would do well to ignore them. Perhaps, if we do, they will stop the nonsense.

    Obama and demo's projected that they wanted to use "income inequality" as an electoral theme, and right on que the OWS stooges run with it, and start attacking people of means. And you think they're Republicans? Now that's amusing.

    Dude, progressives from the Bay are anti-everything. I'm shocked they haven't committed mass suicide as a protest against humanity.

    Their ideal utopia would be a world where only 6 million humans exist in the world and we all live in jungle communes like tribal people.

    Don't get me wrong - technology can be dangerous - especially when it comes to privacy but my concerns have nothing to do with these wacko's hatred for humanity and their desire to live in trees like the Jungle Book.

    Oh and the fact they were purposely puking on a bus speaks volumes as to how insane they really are and legitimizes everything I just stated.
