We do hope that some members of the Occupy Oakland splinter don't devolve into aesthetic gobbledygook more focused on protest fetishization, bandana-wearing and Oscar Granting than they are in maintaing the Occupy Wall Street objective. Alas, it might be too late for them. As Suise Cagle and Boing Boing point out, this creepy anti-nonviolence leaflet (reminiscent of Tea Party 'Mericanism) was handed out today by the Oakland Liberation Front. It's rather icky.

Among other jarring tidbits, it asks Bay Area pacifists to wreak havoc on authorities at Wednesday's general strike. Starting out with "the cock of the American empire in your supple hands," it gets better/worse from there. Enjoy.
