    A slight problem is also that many Jews in America also happen to operate under the left of the spectrum. Also, you're likely to find far fewer making these sort of comments than other generic leftist comments.

    Ahhh! But I'm a teabagger too, in one sense or another - Ron Paul is my man... but OWS is on point too. And for the record I (for one) never bought the teaparty = racist smear either.

    Well, I see this is the state of political discourse in the US today... Tarnish a group (teaparty, OWS, whatever) with racist or other hateful quotes, and sink it without adressing any of its core assertions... sad, but hard to defend.

    The reason it is an impossible technique to defend rhetorically is because YES: 3 or more people who support OWS are also anti-semites, just as 3 or more tea partiers are racists.

    This makes for a wonderful distraction that serves as a foil for redirecting the real substantive issues (US debt death spiral for TP, 99% vs 1% for OWS) to idiotic politics of identity.

    I don't blame the system, it's only natural, but I am left to wonder if this US citizenry is capable of ever forming a coherent polity again, or are we destined to the fractured shards of identity politics?

    Distraction, my ass. Every time someone takes a microphone down to one of these things it just flows like pee.

    Uh, yeah! On point to get lost in the woods.

    Sometimes it seems like were having a thoughtful conversation... but then sometimes it seems like you're not really considering what I've said at all. Also, your overuse of the pronoun "it" makes it difficult to tell what exactly "flows like pee."

    Knowing you as well as I do, I'm fairly sure you didn't support the federal bailout of AIG or GM... don't overlook that part of the OWS message.

    Let's stay on topic why OWS can't shake this Jew hating thing.

    Or, is this where you make like Marge Schott and you say, "They have the right idea, but they are going to far?"

    On topic might also include: should this idiot have been fired? Maybe, maybe not. I'm sure I espouse some ideas my employer wouldn't appreciate, but they're my business, aren't they? If this loon kept her lunacy out of her classroom and stuck to clearly proscribed curriculum... what has she done wrong to deserve getting fired?

    I get it. You need to be tolerant of that point of view because it enables you to to build up a critical mass to solve some other problems.
