    Who are the OWS protesters?
    "The Beginning Is Near! proclaimed one early sign at New York City’s Liberty Plaza, which since September 17 has been held by a coalition of activists under the Occupy Wall Street banner. In the early days of the action, many on the professional left doubted that Occupy Wall Street would be the beginning of anything. “Another day, another demo…” some shrugged, weary from years of protests that never seem to stop another war, another robbery of the poor by the rich. In Washington, for two frustrating years, the debate has been focused on how much austerity to have—the slash-and-burn policies of the Republican Party or the austerity-lite measures of President Obama. More stimulus, we were told, was a nonstarter. Hope seemed a distant, perhaps false, memory.

    But thankfully, the young protesters at the heart of Occupy Wall Street are not so cynical. The kids are alright! They may have lost faith in the key institutions of America—the elected officials, the media, the banks—that ought to be steering the country out of economic crisis, but they have not lost faith in the people. Yes, they’re angry, but they are also searching and optimistic and, above all, they have taken matters into their own hands.

    The beginning really is near. The occupation of Wall Street has grown from hundreds to thousands, and more than 115 parallel occupations have cropped up in cities around the world, from Occupy Boston to Occupy Los Angeles to Occupy Finland. Crucially, labor and civil society groups like the SEIU, the Teamsters, the Transit Workers, New York Communities for Change and others have come on board, not to take over the occupation from the amateurs but to join them, won over by their DIY spirit."

    Does anyone think the OWS people might turn violent? The Tea Partiers were never violent yet liberal rallies are usually violent.

    what an unbelievably stupid & ignorant statement.

    where is your evidence that Liberal rallies tend to become violent?

    ...predictable.





    Should we talk about G20, as well? Maybe you'd like me to collect a few more videos? Let me guess. Hm... These instances weren't violent? Do note I never said ALL liberal rallies were violent.

    there must have been hundreds if not thousands of Liberal/Democrat rallies in 2008.

    how many of them turned violent?

    how many Liberal/Democrat rallies in 2004 turned violent?

    your truly ignorant statement is only shadowed by your ridiculously broad stroke.

    ...if you were listening, you would realize I'm comparing liberal rallies to the Tea Partiers. Read my starting post here, again, and again, and again.

    How about this one, as well?

    Tea Partiers vs liberal rallies. Liberal rallies have been much more violent.
