    and using words like "retaliation", the message is clear to me.
    They dont use the word "retaliation"....

    I dont know about that TC. I think a majority of OWS supporters, while not wanting to engage in violence themselves, do support the violence that some of the other followers employ. At the very least they justify if.

    right, care to mention the bags of feces, and jars of urine thrown? The rioting, brick throwing and other violence black block is known for?

    My bad, overwhelming "collective resistance".....


    Sounds... almost.... revolutionary.

    So now we move from specifically this picture and article written 3 months ago to today?
    Ok. Yea it was idiotic of them. Its stupid.

    The rioting, brick throwing and other violence black block is known for?
    Yea its idiotic. But this picture does not show that and article does not call for that.
    So for you saying that OWS condones and welcomes these actions is just not true at all.





    My bad, overwhelming "collective resistance".....
    Ohhh ahhh scary. Passive resistance...



    Sounds... almost.... revolutionary.
    Peaceful sure..

    Never said the picture shows violence...

    Ok. Yea it was idiotic of them. Its stupid.

    But it is who they are. #ows would have done better not using a black block picture, would you not agree?

    They march side by side with people dressed like and doing black block things. hell, they use pictures of black block types on thier websites...


    I think at one time they rejected them I remember folks complaining back in the day, but now? with the movement becoming desparate not to be obsolete and irrelevant.... we see a fundamental shift.



    Ohhh ahhh scary. Passive resistance...

    Until a guy dressed like the assholes on that website throw bricks through my window. not scary at all...






    Peaceful sure..

    Then why have pictures of non peaceful anarchists on your website.

    The apologies from the left with this crap is pathetic. In the opinion of many, OWS does enable and foment the direct violent acts as happened in Seattle.

    But let's assume as you do. That they just want all things peaceful.

    When you break the law and block another man from getting to work. From pursuing their livelihood for that day. From providing for their family for that day. Just WTF kind of peaceful reaction is that supposed to getcha ? But all that is OK with the free-loading left. Because its about being "fair"

    Hey OWS. Try blocking my driveway you parasites.

    Where do you get that? I have certainly not seen it. All I have seen are tons of people condemning the violence. It's possible they are afraid to in front of a camera perhaps. But I haven't seen it.

    And in little paragraph you condemn everyone to the left. And yet there are plenty of lefties who have condemned these actions including me. So do share, what exactly does that make you?

    If violence and destruction is not a problems for the OWSers then that is what they are personally going to get. Perhaps you can explain your rationalization to them when it happens.

    "#ows main site, wants you to look like that when you retaliate."
    "Why would they #ows website, use a picture of violent assholes, if thier aim was nonviolence, It makes little sense and I find your excuse making, suspect."







    But it is who they are. #ows would have done better not using a black block picture, would you not agree?
    No.... As long as the Black Bloc is doing something legitimate like defending themselves and other protesters from a police barrage..
    Not all Black Bloc tactics are bad. Saying that however the vast majority of Black Blocs are Anarchists taking part in "propaganda of the deed" and violent "direct action" but this picture seems just to be a bunch of Black Bloc anarchists defending themselves...





    They march side by side with people dressed like and doing black block things.
    How do you suggest the movement to stop this?

    hell, they use pictures of black block types on thier websites...
    Ohh ahhh scary...



    I think at one time they rejected them I remember folks complaining back in the day, but now?
    Rejected violence... Not anarchists and black blocs in general..
    .
    with the movement becoming desparate not to be obsolete and irrelevant.... we see a fundamental shift.
    Not really. Earlier in the thread i believe Top Cat posted an apology...





    Until a guy dressed like the assholes on that website throw bricks through my window. not scary at all...
    Im sure that is about to happen any second now...






    Then why have pictures of non peaceful anarchists on your website.
    THEY ARE DEFENDING THEMSELVES...
