    Oakland police arresting about 100 protesters

    First I want to say hi! I am new to Debate Politics but not new to political forums. I am glad to be here and contribute to the discussions.

    This article is about the OWS which I am not a fan of but found that the clash between the police and protesters have stepped up. I noticed the protesters are far bolder than before with throwing rocks and items and making shields. Makes me wonder how far it will eventually go.


    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Police were in the process of arresting about 100 Occupy protesters for failing to disperse Saturday night, hours after officers used tear gas on a rowdy group of demonstrators who threw rocks and flares at them and tore down fences.

    Here is a Youtube video of the action. Crazy stuff.

    Violence, and images of violence, destruction of private and public property, disregard for lawful order, rape, theft, cultural Marxism is what OWS has come to stand for. In Oakland anarchists, and unemployed pissed off younger people are led by this astro turf movement started up and funded by George Soros and Ad Busters want...They are 'useful idiots'... the call now is for them all to converge on Chicago in a redux of '68... I hope that they occupy Obama's house.

    Re: Oakland police arresting about 100 protesters

    This kind of scenario annoys me. I just now saw on the news that 50 OWS members were just arrested for breaking into a government building and destroying property. The thing about liberals in general is that they say you can't blame the OWS for any of the numerous acts of violence, YET, if the TP were to have 100 members rampage through the city, you'll see these same liberals banter about it. Utter hypocrisy.

    I agree with that part. They need to occupy Obama's house, as well as the house of every other damn America-wrecking politician too, Democrat and Republican alike.

    I'm more impressed with the antics of Code Pink, and they are a public and political nuisance.

    LMAO that was funny. Those protesters cant throw worth ****. Then turn tail and run like a bunch of babies. They probably are not much to worry about when protesting. My guess is that chicken ****s like those wannabe revolutionists would do something stupid behind the scenes.

    The funniest part is that they have shields with peace symbols and they brought things to throw at the cops. Did they not understand a damn thing about what they are doing?

    I blame every city that decided to let these people camp out for as long as they want for the damage these occutards have done. And now they want to give them the boot now that the situation has kind of gotten a little out of hand. Its like letting a hundred cats stay at your house for a week and then acting all surprised that your furniture is shredded,stuff knocked down and the house smells like cat piss.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Whats even funnier is that they are still trying to say that it was the police that were being violent. I guess their reasoning is so bad that they cant figure out that if someone brings weapons to a protest it is not a protest but a riot.

    Whats is even more telling is that the normal supporters that usually come into threads like these to protect the movement are nowhere to be seen.

    Watching the video of those wannabe revolutionists wielding tin roofing and shield while throwing weapons that they brought for the sole purpose of trying to harm the police is damning evidence that the occupy movement is desperate. But they believe or at least are trying to assert that America is a dictatorship on the level of Nazi Germany. They are engaged in revolution in their minds. Things will keep progressing in that fashion. Oakland is the first change in their war against America. There will be more battles that will mirror what happened in Oakland. After that they will go more covert. The most likely avenue that the Occupiers are headed towards is assignations and attacks on buildings. They are headed towards the same terrorism used by the IRA.
    They keep telling themselves how they are justified in there actions. A few months a go the occupy supporters online were offended by any violence by protesters. Today that attitude has changed. They are are slowly progressing towards being part of an violent revolution.

    #Occupy Oakland: Young man, pick yourself off the ground! | MyFDL

    #SolidaritySunday with Oakland Marches in NYC and Across the US; Bank of Ideas Being Evicted in London | OccupyWallSt.org This mic check was read before the march in Boston:

    1) once again we are here for oakland a mighty city and a fierce ally in the international struggle for economic justice

    2) yesterday our brothers and sisters moved to convert a vacant building into a community center to provide education health care and housing services for the 99%. Police responded with tear gas, flashbang grenades, rubber bullets, and mass arrests.
    3) The city of Oakland has a longstanding policy of callous indifference when it comes to the needs of its community it has compounded this cruelty with a ruthless display of violent repression.

    4) we also recognize that the corporate media has a vested interest in justifying violence against the occupation movement city councilman de la fuente referred to protesters as domestic terrorists

    5) we ask you what is terrorism? we are 19 cities marching in unison in solidiarty with oakland is this terrorism? we seek to reclaim
    the buildings left vacant while our families suffer is this terrorism? we seek to build a worldwide commuity where there have been only nations is this terrorism?

    6) when the state is invested in keeping space empty the better to serve its billionaire masters we will act and when the police are bought and paid for by corporate leviathans we will fight

    7) and when our children ask us what it is that we did when their future was threatened we will tell them that we occupied
    NYC General Assembly # Occupy Wall Street


    It is clear now that the occupy movement is an direct attack on America. I for one will not tolerate occupiers trying to destroy my country. If they want war they will find war. I say war because Americans will not go willingly in destruction. Anarchy, Socialism , Leftist revolution its all the same they hate America and want to replace our culture. they keep crying class war while engaging in cultural war they are the embodiment of of intolerance. Again where are the supporters of the occupy movement on DP now?
