*gasp*

So you are meaning to tell me that some people might support other political systems?

STOP THE PRESSES*. WE GOT THE SCOOP OF THE CENTURY HERE!

*do you think future generations will understand the term "stop the presses"?
 
2012-05-03 11:19:40 AM  
oh yes...because the mainstream press has been so friendly to the OWS movement....

/sarcasm

also - your blog sucks.

well....the downside to OWS is that you can't screen out the idiots. so if you walk around a protest long enough and are diligent, you can find pictures of people waving all kinds of stupid things.

to be fair, you can do the same things to the tea party idiots. its just that OWS never authorizes weapons. But on the sign thing, i'm willing to give the teabaggers the benefit of the doubt so long as they do the same for OWS.

The Main Stream Media is also curiously silent on which neighbor allowed their dog to dump on my front yard. Thanks Obama

To be fair, it's not really fair to compare these signs to the signs you see at tea party rallies. Most of those signs weren't all that stupid. Open the borders? Karl Marx quotes? Marx was about the little guy realizing their own power and standing up to the oppressive minority.

I was ready to cringe at painfully inane signs, but instead was met with a sh*tty blog with signs that would outrage tea partiers and not many others.

what bothers me about the tea party isn't the signs...its the open display of weapons. don't bring guns to a protest party. that's just not cool.

The open display is much worse, I agree.

Although it's hilarious when armed protestors carry signs that say "We came unarmed.... this time"

I don't like implied threats of murder at a political protest. that simply isn't helpful.

*sigh*

not that any of this will matter. this thread will implode into freeper derp once the literland GOP shills get a hold of it.

The Occupy Movement sure fizzled fast. I predicted that would happen. Once the true colors of the movement were exposed and the whole thing turned violent, decent people got out.

so if that's true...then why did the NYPD pull an early morning raid on OWS leaders (um...so to speak) and then do their level best to shut down the protests...?

I mean, if OWS is over, why the continued massive local/state/federal law enforcement pressure on the movement?

1. OWS is weak! it's powerless! it has no goal! it's disorganized!
2. OWS is dangerous! it's organized! they're goals are evil!

in order to be a Republican, both things have to be equally true at the same time. you have to literally believe that OWS has no goals AND at the same time that OWS has a plan and it's dangerous to the country.

well, this is true of many of their tenets, chiefly:

• obama is an empty suit! - obama is an evil mastermind bent on destroying america!
• obama is a muslim! - obama is a radical black christian!
• obama is a socialist! - obama is a tool of wall street!
• obama is elite and aloof! - obama is too cool!
• obama is a silver-tongued devil - obama can't speak without a teleprompter!

I'll bet there are a ton of CEOs and business who hope that Communism in China never ends, otherwise they wouldn't be able to profit from Chinese oppression.

I nail our GOP shills on that contradiction every OWS thread...and they just keep repeating the same lies. I mean that literally - they just repeat the same boilerplate statements over and over and over...

it's getting kinda weird if you ask me.
 
2012-05-03 12:23:26 PM  
I find it amusing that the people crying "OWS is dead, fizzled out, etc" have essentially been the ones to keep the movement alive by constantly whining about it and therefore, keeping the topics fresh on everybody's mind.

So thanks for that!

When all the decent people abandon a movement for being too radical, what do you got left? Radicals. Police still have to deal with them.

except that's not what happened. YOU said OWS was weak and powerless....my counter is that if the movement is weak and powerless then why has law enforcement pressure INCREASED. if the movement is weak and powerless, then the cops should be backing off. i'm sure the cops have better things to do than go after a movement that's nothing more than a handful of people, right?

Actually I find it more incredible that any of them are still doing any protesting at all. I mean really, what do they hope to accomplish? Bring the whole system down? String up the capitalists? You have to be a devoted anti-capitalist to STILL be protesting. Not to mention a total mooch.

The fact that they have become politically weak and powerless does not mean that they no longer pose a threat to public safety.

But how can OWS be a bunch of leaderless and powerless disorganized losers AND still be organized enough to be a 'threat to public safety'? And what makes you believe OWS is such a threat in the first place?

Why do we have to qualify it? I mostly support OWS and what they have to say about income inequality and whatnot. Why can't we just say, "You know what, asshole, you're not helping"? Why do we have to say, "You know what, the other side has people just as bad"?
