That's a single email from a nutjob....Your lie comes from suggesting it's representative of the OWS youth movement.
Scroll through threads on ATS where members question the OWS movement. There are multiple comments about anyone denying the movement "will regret
it", will be swinging from lampposts, and other such violent imagery. Other online forums contain similar messages of how if the government (who is
somehow going to be our benevolent savior) doesn't confiscate the wealth of the rich, violence will occur. Not in a predictive social behavior sort
of way, but in a threatening sort of way.
And when anyone questions the logic of the demands being made (which is inevitable because there is no logic in most cases), you are called shill,
traitor, stupid and otherwise.
This "movement", which will fizzle and die much faster than the Tea Parties, is a good example of mob mentality, which has always, always been taken
over by those with agendas. Because why not? Dumdums who fall into the mob mentality are easily manipulated.
As they are being manipulated now.
I don't care for Glenn Beck but this is definitely at heart an Anti American movement. Its followers might not believe so now, but wait and see.
Once they realize that the vast majority of Americans don't agree with the aims of OWS, it will fizzle.
Now, it would be nice if the END THE FED movement gained some traction. That movement could represent a real threat to the elite. It's one that OWS
could never support because the levels of big brother government spending they seek need the banks to be more powerful than they currently are. These
morons don't understand how the government/banking system/corporations work.
They are begging to become slaves. OWS is the bankers' wet dream. Just like the "populist" anti-bank clamor after the Panic of 1907 that created
the Federal Reserve System, which is nothing but a mechanism to keep the poor down and the elite on top.
Once again, easily manipulated sheep are making demands that show how ignorant they are, thinking they are empowered when they are actually just
asking for tighter controls and more power for the elite they claim to hate.
End the Fed, Return to the Free Market Capitalism that the Fed ended.
The Socialism "99%" crud can go away.
I am an individual. Not part of any collective.
Don't claim me, thanks.
