    Well, I watched the clip...

    First, one whackjob does not make a movement anything but remorseful it has the support of a whackjob.

    And secondly, the woman refered to "zionist Jews running the Federal Reserve."

    So really this is just the old Zionist banking conspiracy garbage that has been around since before the days of John Birch and Barry Goldwater. I guess conspiracy theorists are less partisan than I thought.

    We have certainly answered the question "are there some idiots in the OWS movement?" with a strong affirmative.

    That being said, the old Rothschild and NWO conspiracies are entertaining, aren't they? Alex Jones has practically parleyed them into a lucrative broadcast career.

    You'll note that was a schoolteacher making those statements, a product of the California educational system and among the best, supposedly, that system has to offer. And she was not the only OWL member to shout out these accusations. You'll also recall how the Tea Party were cited as "Racists" by the mainstream media, or "Tea baggers" while this clip, and others, will never make it onto the mainstream media.

    Doesn't it follow that perhaps the news is being filtered and adjusted to promote a particular point of view? If that schoolteacher was a member of the Tea Party talking about Blacks, don't you think there would have been more of a media outcry and less of the "all movements have the occasional whackjob" responses? Remember when Tea Party members were accused of shouting 'Nigger" at Black congressional members and we learned it was all a lie? But the media ran with it and the damage had been done. They'll go with the false accusations rather then publicize the truth.

    yeah, especially when they are being led by Jews and promoting books written by Jews.

    The 60's anti-war hippie protesters (I was around and knew more than a few, though I was a kid), were not exactly diplomatic genius types who had a viable plan for world peace. From what I recall, they were composed about equally of stoners whose main motives were not wanting to go to Vietnam, preferring to stay stoned all day, avoid work as much as possible, and take advantage of the sexual revolution.... and hyper-idealistic college kids or college dropouts who were so full of slogans and chants and RAGE that they couldn't stop to consider an alternative viewpoint.

    So many of them thought if we just laid down all our arms and put daisies in our hair and sang "Let the sunshine in", the Soviet Union and etc would go "Aw, how sweet, let's be nice to them and go have a drum circle and score some weed." Um, No.... the truth of the world is that showing an unwillingness to fight is like wearing a roast pig on your back in a tiger cage.

    Like the hippies of the 60's, I tend to think the OWS protesters are a mix of naive ideologues and lazy opportunists, based on what I've seen. Many interviewees seem to have only a very vague idea of what they're protesting for, and even less idea of what they'd replace the current system with. Others have these incredibly unrealistic anarchist notions that in the absence of all gov't that people would just naturally be cooperative and communitarian and everything would be groovy, baby.


    The 60's anti-war, anti-caplitalism, anti-Establishment hippies didn't really change much in the world, overall. Society is still structured much the same, with work and jobs and corporations and rich people and politicians and wars. Many of the very people who were hippy protesters back then are now capitalists, corporatists, and politicians, and they're not ushering in any Age of Aquarius.


    The OWS is likely just another flash in the pan, but an even smaller and less significant one.
    Correction. They became professors, educators, and politicians, and spawned the idiots we see in OWS "movement".. LOL Laughing at the use of the word.. "Movement"..

    Well, you won't catch me defending media coverage of the teaparty or OWS. I'm proud to have been a participant in what I consider the first Teaparty event, the Ron Paul moneybomb in2007. It's sort of gone downhill from there, but I digress...

    I think the media does a pretty horrible job altogether. But, I would point out that the MSM does include Fox and the big AM talkers, which have covered this, so I don't see the big deal... I mean if you didn't know the slant of NBC by now you haven't been paying attention!

    Doubly unfortunate she is a teacher. I hope she keeps the conspiracies out of her classroom.

    It was eradicate the Zionists.....You define it.........There were other protestors who were hollering F__K the USA....It was sickening.........
