    The question was whether or not OWS protestors dislike him because he's not progressive or because he's not anti-capitalist. Both are true to some extent.

    Depends on the individual. It's alot like the tea party, there is a really broad spectrum of beliefs contained within OWS. When you oversimplify you are inevitably going to get it wrong.

    I agree that it depends on the individual. That's why I specifically brought up the left-anarchist wing of OWS. I know a couple of those people. They're rabidly anti-capitalist, and it's one of the primary reasons they don't like Obama.

    As is usually the case, I don't think the far end of the spectrum makes up a significant number of them though.

    Also true. And the anarchist wing has been around a lot longer than OWS itself. They're their own entity.

    And they are still going to vote for him...just like they did last time. For all their impotent rage and rhetoric...they elected and will reelect the single largest recipient of all that corporate, banker, and broker cash. Sell out? WHo the **** did they THINK they were electing?

    By ASSOCIATED PRESS | 3/18/12 12:53 PM EDT

    NEW YORK - Police say more than 70 people were taken into custody following a rally at the park where the Occupy movement was born.
    Hundreds of protesters had returned to Zuccotti Park near Wall Street on Saturday to mark the six months that have passed since the movement began. They locked arms and sat down after police announced on a bullhorn at around 11:30 p.m. that the park was closed.

    I seem to remember reading about some radicals back in 1773, who donned costumes to break and enter and throw private property into the water, don't you?

    The people organizing the protests, the Occupy newspapers, etc.

    Here's a video of the Occupy Strategy Session at NYU. These people are the leaders of the movement: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/vide...ith-seiu-help/

    What are these people's names? How do they control the OWS? Do you have anything other than an idiotic editorial?
