    Trouble with free speech is it's not just free speech but a free for all.

    These "knuckledraggers" would never have tried the same thing with the Tea Party protesters because they know that any attempt at violence, or damage to public property, would have put them in serious harm's way. The Tea partiers love their country and what it stands for.

    But they know that they can get away with this sort of thing with the OWSers because the OWSers tend to behave like a disoriented mob and are, of course, not terribly bright. Their knuckles would show a lot of wear as well.

    Except that they're not liberal jackasses nor OWS. They are the ultimate extreme of small government conservatives: anarchists.
    Sorry, but no cigar for you. As noted by others, these folks do not find cover and comfort within such as Tea Party rallies.

    Look at the posts by such as Ikari and a couple of others. Its all right there.

    These most violent ones may be the fringe, but its the fringe of liberalism. No different from the tree-huggers who vandalize the logging industry. And just a small jump from such as the OWS scum who blocked the port in Oakland, or proclaimed that they were going to block bridges yesterday. All cut from the same cloth.

    I think that people are confusing the Black bloc with OWS protestors. They are two different groups.

    No they are not. Black bloc has been in and a part of ows since it started.


    That said. These savages are only "anarchists" because they have daddy's credit cards...


    On another note I read they are throwing bags of feces and urine.. I thought that's what monkeys do.

    Anyone else find it ironic, that anarchists are justifying the need for the state, by destroying stuff and hurting people.
    Funny.

    The black bloc is not a part of the OWS, they just use OWS rallies to their advantage. Look em up.

    oh really?

    Let's review "black bloc"

    A black bloc is a tactic for protests and marches, whereby individuals wear black clothing, scarves, ski masks, motorcycle helmets with padding, or other face-concealing items.[...] The clothing is used to avoid being identified, and to, theoretically, appear as one large mass, promoting solidarity. -wiki


    Now let's look at #ows of dubious causes main website:

    Solidarity Sunday




    Straight from the horses mouth.


    It's amazing I know so much more about #ows of dubious causes that it's supporters.

    As one who has a family member that is a police officer that has saved many lives, I find your response both counter-productive and naive.

    Want to wage the good fight against the government? Fine, I can understand that and in some ways understand that. Want to wage a fight with cops who protect us and sacrifice so much to do so, I'll fight along them in wiping people that use violence against cops out.
