Where Are They Now? Berkeley Treetard Tristan Anderson
Whatever happened to the hippies who were finally made to come down after spending nearly two years living in somebody else’s trees in Berkeley? Most of them are probably teaching college classes or serving in the Obama administration, but some have gone on to exciting new adventures:
A veteran Bay Area activist is in stable condition Sunday after being critically injured Friday evening during a protest against the building of a separation barrier in the Palestinian village of Naalin on the West Bank, according to his girlfriend.
Tristan Anderson, 38, of Oakland, underwent surgery to have part of his frontal lobe removed. As of Sunday he was on full life support and heavily medicated at Tel Hashomer hospital in Tel Aviv, his girlfriend Gabrielle Silverman said today in a telephone interview.
“My understanding is that they are trying to let his brain rest as much as possible and do as little work as possible,” Silverman said.
Unfortunately that approach to life hasn’t helped Anderson much so far.
He was in Naalin to protest against Israel when a tear gas canister hit him in the face, causing the injury. As fate would have it, this event occurred the day before the anniversary of fellow American moonbat Rachel Corrie’s transformation into a Fruit Roll-Up under the treads of Israeli bulldozer, whose driver couldn’t see her boldly defending some terrorist hideout.
It’s a hard old world for witless moonbats, even if they are running the country now.
