Redress, you're under the assumption that your "legitimate news sources" would report on a discussion panel entitled "The Abolition of Capitalism". Ha!
I suppose Beck and Breitbart created some very life-like puppets, stuck their hands under their shirts and read from the "anti-capitalism" script. Your refusal to believe what is coming out of their mouths (wait, I'm guessing you didn't even watch it) so.... Your refusal to even open your eyes and ears because someone you really hate pointed it out to you is incredibly closed-minded. At least some people here are intellectually honest and admit that some Occupy big wigs are anti-capitalists. You... not so much.

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
Now, what you have yet to show is OWS leadership. Not even one scrap. You showed a video from a source famous for editing videos, and even then it does not show that the people in it are OWS leaders. People in OWS do not claim them for leaders, but somehow you are sure these people must be those leaders, knowing more than the people actually in the movement. It's been part of the great fun of those attacking the OWS that they would be the first to throw a fit if people used their tactics against the Tea Party.
