We need some "extremists" on the left, it's obvious the harder you derp the more your agenda moves so good for them.

We *must* maintain orthodoxy! At all times!

Democracy! This means that corporations pay lobbies to express the peoples' will!

Freedom! This means shutting up and doing as you are told so that your superiors can protect your freedom to shut up and do as you are told!

Capitalism! This means no income taxes on your betters and unions are forbidden!

Communism is evil! Communism is anti-American! Communism is blasphemy!

Orthodoxy! Must maintain orthodoxy! Only orthodoxy prevents left-wing political correctness and improper sexual behavior!

Deviant corrupt perverted sick warped twisted political ideas must be shouted down!

Looks like the right wing compassionate conservatives figured out the best signs to make republicans made and infiltrated OWS protests to cause problems.

There is no hate like conservative christian hate.

SkinnyHead: Weaver95: SkinnyHead: 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?

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.


Seriously. Radicals have always been a problem for the rightful government.

In a related story, there is a story here about a Republican fundraiser who set up a phony charity and swiped $100 million. So using the "logic" of THIS story, it would naturally mean that EVERY single solitary Republican is a thief. Also, yesterday in Az, JT Ready, Neo Nazi, Republican and murderer killed 4 people and then himself, so that would mean that ALL Republicans are Neo Nazis AND murderers.

See how that works?

Morons and your blanket statements.

MadMonk: boo hoo, mainstream media is paying too much attention to OWS......

boo hoo, mainstream media isn't paying enough attention to OWS....

Repubs say these guys are bunch of clowns but I haven't seen them so afraid of one group of people since Nixon went crazy and tried to lock up everyone with hair below their shoulders.


Sorry to burst your bubble but nobody is afraid of anything except OWS farking up their commute. When OWS or people sympathetic to OWS send packets of white powder to targets, or threaten to disrupt commerce, the authorities are absolutely correct to take preventative measures. It's not fear, it's being prepared and responsible.

I will commend OWS for having their protests in NY the other day and not (to my knowledge) seriously inconveniencing regular working people. I had to listen to some idiots on the subway but that's not unusual for the subway.

Niven's Law:

There is no cause so right that one cannot find a fool following it

It seems that this needs to be a specifically named and defined subset of the Ad hominem logical fallacy:

Look this person supposrts cause X, and this person is an extremist/racist/idiot of epic proportions, ergo all supporters of cause X are extremists/racists/idiots of epic proportions

Do we really have to do two sets of these stupid protest critiques / defenses?

By this blogger's rationale the Tea Party can't spell at a third grade level and lack any grip on the workings of government.

Yes, protests tend to bring out the more fringe-y types in political movements...

Tricone hats anyone?

FlashHarry: Weaver95: in order to be a Republican, both things have to be equally true at the same time.

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!


Truly, he is all things to all people!

how many middle class jobs do you think there are in the banking industry? Or whichever industry's corporate bailouts you think OWS is opposed to. Apparently we have different rules for different sectors.

I have no problems with Communists, not because I believe their principles, but because I believe in their freedom.

when in the absence of the corporate bailout you would be unemployed in the midst of a very tough labor market? Yeah, I'd say that's a benefit from the corporate bailout. Wouldn't you?

What's the benefit of air bags? I get to keep living? Pffft! I already do that!

Probably quite a few. The bailouts weren't there to save them however. They were provided because the industry itself farked up the entire economy and needed to be rescued. Those who benefited per primarily at the executive level.

I'm not necessarily opposed to bailouts. Depends how they are managed. I'm an advocate of nationalization but I know that's a dirty word in your book. From nationalization give control to the workers who can run the company through direct democracy (which is also probably a bad idea in your book). I believe labor is entitled to all that it creates.

Two things:

1. I say this as a committed, unrepentant capitalist: The robber baron scumbag crony capitalism which is slowly impoverishing most of us and weakening our national economy is what the OWS people are pissed about AND is the strongest recruiting tool communism may ever have had. We really have a system of oligarchic corruption being perpetuated between our political and business elites... but it's being masqueraded as true blue capitalism, even when it isn't, and that's giving actual well regulated capitalism a bad name.

2. The mainstream media hasn't exactly been all that great to the OWS movement, nor were they at first to the Tea Party - though at least they've been more fawning over the Tea Party since they were absorbed largely as wing of the Republican Party. I'd expect they'd give similar treatment to the OWS movement if it ever allows itself to be absorbed by the Democratic party, like the Tea Party was by the Republicans, because our media has an establishment bias and tends to protect the current political elite structure whose teats they suckle at so deeply.
 
2012-05-03 02:06:11 PM
It's also less ironic that the same folks who put together this blog praising the wealthy "job creators" who undermined the economy for short term benefit while demonizing unions and other middle-class professionals.
 
2012-05-03 02:06:39 PM
You know subby, maybe if we didn't cut funding to elementary and secondary education, as well as vilify intelligence in our society, these kids would be more intelligent, have better opportunities, and generally be busy being employed; rather than unemployed and looking for answers as to why, when they did everything they were told to from getting a degree to searching for work to taking a shiat job while looking for better work, why are they not successful?

At some point people will just give up and look for a scapegoat.

I swear that there are so many people on Fark shrugging this off as if its nothing... Its the typical libs, but I thought they can see wrong right away.

Sorry, but openly calling for communism/socalism, after its complete failure all over the world, and human rights violations, is just dumb as fark. I hope this is just a small sliver of the OWS. Also comparing it to Tea Party is asinine, the Tea Party actually votes, and know how the election process works, hence 2010.

heh why do you think GM needed to be bailed out? Because they were well managed? The banking bailouts saved more middle class jobs - jobs which people are just as "entitled" to - than the GM restructuring and Chrysler bailout. Yet we are opposed to them because it also bailed out wealthy people... which the Chrysler bailout also did for Cerberus

I don't think it was his point to shut them down. I'm an OWS supporter, in general terms, but think it's pretty ignorant to fly a flag of Stalin or Che. Eye-rolling "you're not helping" sort of idiotic. Not all ideas are equal. Some are just plain misinformed and stupid, and I feel it my duty if I really believe in the movement to point out the ideas that I reject. This is one of them.

I love the idea of worker owned companies. Go for it. Of course, I also am opposed to the idea that the government should steal the company and give it to the workers. Crazy, I know.
