"On Thursday the August 14th, a gang of anti-hipster hooligans trashed an Urban Outfitters in Milwaukee.
Around eleven in the morning, the group infiltrated the store, one-by-one. Then, when the moment was right, they made their presence known.
"Die hipster scum!"
A person juggled eggs (all over the merchandise) while informing the customers that the circus was in town, but they were the freak show. Displays were broken, tables were flipped, merchandise was scattered all over the store, and piles of shameless Obama gear was looted and destroyed.
Let it be known, hipsters, your time has come. No longer will we sit by idly while you appropriate symbols of the working class, queer culture or revolutionary struggle while creating no cool of your own. We'll meet you on the front lines of gentrification and cultural erasure and fight you at each encounter. And Richard Hayne, don't think we've forgotten about the disgusting amounts of money you've donated to Focus on the Family and Rick Santorum, and all their anti-queer crusades.
Today we hit one of your stores. Tomorrow it might be one of your clubs, your cafes or maybe even your condos.
Put down the Polaroids and V-necks; take up the rocks and bottles.
some fans of stores in shambles"
