    Actually, Obama did come out with almost those exact words (take it to the streets) just a week or two before the OWS movement appeared on the scene.

    uhm, no that would not be my logic. This is the main #ows site, no? I am sure thier are peaceful #ows types and most of them are, however, the main #ows site is infering violent retaliation via black bloc tactics.





    Use your eyes instead of your emotions.

    And fyi...I don't support the OWS. I also don't reject them out of hand.


    Your anecdotal is far more "emotional" than my factual position regarding the main site of the #ows movement, the examples of pee and poo throwing, calls for violence by #ows folks in this thread, and on and on....

    It's a dying movement, that is being reduced to it most radical.

    Oh come on, take it to the streets is a common metaphor to go door to door, legal protests, etc.

    Nowhere did Obama say block traffic, bridges, and get violent.

    Ummm, some people aren't smart enough to understand metaphor.

    'tis true. I don't think OWS has pertinent cause for revolt. While I can understand some of the base anger, they've succumbed to simplistic rioting and looting. If one is to engage in violence against the government, at the very least they should take it out against the government.

    The mistake being made by their handlers is that they can create mayhem and revolution in America without the "silent majority" of Americans ever striking back. Like Yamamoto after Pearl Harbor, the far left may eventually realize that "...all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant."
    There are many problems with OWS. A lot I believe stems from their lack of organization and leadership. While the base protest would be OK under these conditions, without leadership you're essentially letting the inmates run the asylum. Under these conditions, fringe groups within the movement can act under the same name as the larger movement with no internal policing of action and membership. I think on many fronts we see that happening more and more as OWS stretches on.

    So Obama had no clue that his advocating class envy, and then praising the OWS movement, was not going to lead to the disrespect for the law, and the livelihoods of others, that we saw with the otherwise non-violent OWS protesters ? He is that stupid ?

    No. He is not. In fact, the educated opinions that Obama's class-envy reelection platform were going to lead to violence such as this were voiced from the very beginning. This most certainly is not rocket science.

    What does the tea party have to do with anything in this thread? Nice deflection and dodge there.
    Been mentioned a few times. In that this violence follows liberal political protests, not conservative protests. It is not a random coincidence.

    I don't see anything "violent" or "destructive" about the article you linked to.


    Violence begets violence and when you fling your poo and pee at cops, I won't care much if they don't treat you well.
    This is a common made up accusation against the black bloc. I have yet to see any actual evidence that anyone has ever flung "poo" or "pee" (how do you even "fling" pee?).

    Ahh so by your logic, if the tea party holds a rally and the KKK show up and cause problems, it is the Tea Party that is at fault. Got it.

    Yet again, Obama was praising the idea of standing up for what you believe in. Nowhere did he say go to the streets and block traffic while causing violence.

    You can blame it on him all you want, it is your own partisan hackery that is on display here for all to see.

    Bull****, ever seen a flag burning? It's always conservatives that throw the first punch or start a fight. It's not a random coincindence. I guess Cons are violent and should be outlawed.

    I have clearly proved this contention wrong.

    I was being facetious. Black Bloc are the likely perps here. However you are wrong, they are not OWS. They are thug opportunists. And perhaps you missed it, I am all for giving these perps a serious beat down. These are the same little punk bitch cowards that pulled this stunt at the WTO.
