    Sorry for using logic...

    In the opinion of many, OWS does enable and foment the direct violent acts as happened in Seattle.
    How?


    But let's assume as you do. That they just want all things peaceful.
    They do that is way the VAST MAJORITY are peaceful marches and peaceful protest tactics..


    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.

    I ridicule those who support OWS. I ridicule those who lap-up Obama's class envy BS.

    Violence will follow OWS. They advocate law-breaking. They seem to think that horse is somehow still contained once out of the barn.

    "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."

    "infering" =/= "showing"

    I stand by my position that they are infering folks get a little dirty....








    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...


    Why are they defending themselves? Are they blocking a bridge or doing some other illegal activity? all we have is their history.


    How do you suggest the movement to stop this?

    The same way the tea party dealt with racism..


    \

    By direct conforntation....

    When #ows was bigger, they used to disavow them and their actions. What happened?



    Ohh ahhh scary...
    Not scary, it sends a message about who they are and what they are willing to do.


    Rejected violence... Not anarchists and black blocs in general..
    .

    Chris hedges from that #ows website to amy goofball:

    "And so, my criticism of the Black Bloc is one over tactic. And I will just conclude by saying I’m not a pacifist. I was in Sarajevo during the war. Human beings can be pushed to a point—you were in East Timor—where violence is the only way that they can protect themselves, their families, their communities. But we’re not there yet. And hopefully we’ll never get there."


    not "yet" he says, yet he uses thier imagery on his website.



    Not really. Earlier in the thread i believe Top Cat posted an apology...

    huh?




    Im sure that is about to happen any second now...
    It is rhetorical in nature, My office is too high up.



    THEY ARE DEFENDING THEMSELVES...

    So when they throw a brick through my window, would they be defending themselves when I retaliate? /facepalm
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    '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.
    What is their base anger? Wall Street? What do they want done to remedy whatever flaws they find there?

    What do they expect Obama to do?

    These are not America's best and brightest.

    Of course, one must be prepared for retaliation. It's not like the British let us off the hook either.

    The base anger is against the Corporate State.

    Re: May Day protests turn violent in downtown Seattle

    Already addressed in a previous post, when you use vernacular of dirtbags like blac block and pictures of people in said black garb, the message is clear.
    WTF "vernacular" are you even talking about.

    You fling pee in a jar, I had the article this morning showing a down cop from said jar, can't find it again. so here are more reports from various times.
    Yes, it is reported in newspapers. As I was saying, I don't buy it. Someone claimed that someone threw feces on the window of a military recruiting center here when in reality all that was thrown was red paint. I know this because I witnessed the event in its entirety, and yet the newspaper flat out lied about it. I don't buy it.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    I'm not surprised.

    More stupidity.

    Rocks thrown through windows of Mayor Mike McGinn’s home

    One of the two suspects who threw rocks through the mayor’s windows overnight waved at his wife before walking away, according to a police report about the incident. The Seattle Police Department is looking for two suspects who threw rocks through windows of Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn’s home in Greenwood early this morning, his spokesman confirmed. The windows of the mayor’s living room and dining room were broken.
    I hope they catch these knuckleheads.

    Agreed.

    However, do you think that there will be similar nonsense with every round of OWS protest rallies ? There has been so far. And I think there are plenty more knuckleheads waiting in the wings for exactly the opportunity for mayhem which OWS enables.
