Look I am not against people speaking their minds and even demanding justice and/or accountability. But the reality is that OWS is not gaining mass support by the people that matters. And reason for that failure is that even if some people claim their goals are obvious OWS does not really make it obvious to the regular 'politics bore me' crowd.
Ows is out of touch with mainstream America, their behavior shows it. Americans for the most part follow the laws of society. Civil disobedience alienates the people that do follow the rules of the communities that we all live in. Such behavior does nothing to bind the movement with the everyday law abiding people.
The Thanksgiving dinner in Oakland hammers this point. Occupy Oakland ordered two porta potties for their Thanksgiving celebration at Oscar Grant plaza. The police by the authority of laws on the books disallowed the porta potties. The Occupiers freaked out and became violent. Watch the vid in the link below. Peaceful people do not fight with the police when the police make a request that citizens must follow the laws. Watch closely as one protester tries to hit the officers with the hood of the truck. Also notice the people screaming at the top of their lungs at the officers. Peaceful people do not scream at people. Notice other people trying to remove the porta potties despite being informed that doing so is illegal.
The video really highlights the overall behavior by most of the Occupations. Video after video on YouTube shows protesters screaming at cops. And the same videos show the protesters surrounding cops and intimidating cops on a regular bases. And as I have pointed out the protesters are using known tactics to get themselves arrested so that they can tout arrest numbers.
Time after time you have tried to make excuses and point blankly tried to tell me that I am wrong or misguided. There is proof in the form of hours of video that baked my observations, there are websites set up by the protesters themselves that are thick with the observations that I have talked about. If you want to ignore overwhelming evidence that is your choice. But you have not presented a case at all that convinces me that I am wrong in my analysis of the Occupy movement.
Here is what I cannot get passed with OWS. The tactics and propaganda being put forth by OWS mirrors the same tactics devised by Karl Marx, a method to take over a country by revolution. To rally the working class against the wealthy and the ruling class, in order to dismantle the existing Government in order to make a new Government. You can accuse me of being paranoid until you wear out your keyboard, but the parallels and the fact that the far leftist element of the protest is not small keep me against OWs by what is very obvious to many other people as well.
