    If you were in a crowd of conservative protesters, and a small group of them were doing something odd or questionable, how would you feel if the media kept doing pieces on what that small group was doing and make it fit some representation of you? You would be outraged.

    Yet here we are, with you turning around and doing the same thing to others. You think conservatives and libetarians would have learned what that felt like during the Tea Party movement, when they were constantly characterized as a bunch of racist bigots with no real concern for the welfare of America.

    Im glad you know how Law Enforcement Officers feel...........

    Im also glad you know that a group of that size is chaos, and uncontrollable............

    Thanks for this post.. I'll refer back to it often in future OWS debates with you.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    In other words, they are making the argument for the Right regarding welfare, illegal immigration, and general laziness.

    When lib-tards were calling the tea party members tea baggers,racists and other words did you piss bitch and moan about selective outrage?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    You do not see irony in the OP? I don't sense any outrage in the OP. I think he's more laughing his ass off. As am I. Come on....lighten up....ya' gotta' admit it's funny. Or don't liberals laugh at themselves every once in a while?

    My experience is some liberals don't have the ability to laugh at all, I see a bunch of them in the real world who get almost murderously serious if you say anything against whatever little cause they hold dear........not all of them mind you.......but at least a decent percentage. Then again there are some people on the conservative side who are way too serious about their niche issues as well.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Good post. People who focus on such silly things tend to be the ones who need, for whatever reason, a distraction from the ideas of whatever group they're criticizing. It's actually quite pathetic really.

    Actually it speaks volumes about the issue. We have people who are being overworked trying to feed people who demand more of others outside of the movement. The people trying to feed the others find that there are more hands out every day and they are working constantly harder for less return. It's a perfect example of how people feel having to work themselves half to death to make the kind of money that gets heavily penalized by the tax code. It's a very valid thread and not exactly the distraction some people claim.

    The article is from the New York Post, a blatantly conservative tabloid newspaper. You might have a point if I were confident that the story was even true or even that the feelings expressed in it were widespread or even that it wasn't just another conservative attempt to cast a bad light on OWS.

    It's a legitimate newspaper, you may not like that they choose articles more to the right, but the stories are just as true as those in the opposing New York Times, or the Washington Post.
