Good to see a member of the non-kept left at this protest. I hope there are enough Zizeks involved to prevent it from being co-opted by DNC operatives.
I didn't even know there was a genre of philosopher or public speaker that could be put into a group called "Zizeks."
Zizek's just a radical socialist with intense delivery. He was there when capitalism chewed up eastern Europe and spit it out so he's allowed the luxury of foaming at the mouth a little.

I get really creeped out by call and response style speech like this. strikes me as very cultish. doesn't matter if I agree with what's being said or not, it makes me very nervous.
They're doing the human megaphone because they don't have a sound system, they are just making sure everyone can hear.
Look at it this way:
When it's a lecture format, you are listening.
In this format, you are forcing yourself to respond. You feel the words in your body. If you really disagree, you don't have to say anything. It creates a very personal relationship with the words. Sure, it's a little weird, but it makes you more involved than being a passive observer, which you can always be.
Also remember that ANYBODY can up and do this. Ron Paul people are doing this. It's pretty weird and new. And I love it.
It's creepy and I hate it. Also, Slavoj Zizek sucks.
The Catholics do this every Sunday and I've never heard anyone call them creepy for speaking en masse. And like baleen said, there are a myriad of speakers and topics being run through this conduit. With Catholics it is the same few lines from the Bible every week, and very clearly brainwashing.
Catholics are creepy as hell. That just makes this seem creepier.
You are easily scared.

Happy to finally see Zizek's position on the movement, I've honestly been waiting to hear it for weeks.

Man, he's such a twitchy, glitchy weirdo who seems to be obsessed with popular culture. That being said, I love listening to his thoughts.
