Yeh "takes ONE guy to stand up"

Dont see the other protestors sending their thoughts across like this..Stupid chanting and people walking around clueless. Over half the OWS and protest crowds are just passers by looking to see what the buzz is about.

Now we see who the real "sheeple" are the ones that sit back and let others do the hard work for them as they cant be bothered to think.

Unless this guy is a plant.. Seems his shirt didn't fit him that well, maybe he served a while back as he did say 14months.

Seeing as how the thread title makes use of his service, incorrectly I might add, I think his uniform and service is a relevant topic to discuss.

If you don't think so then stop replying to people who do find it relevant and let us have our conversation while you have your own.

Again, I 100% back the protest, still think this guy is a too.


The thread title says nothing about his uniform so no, it is not really a relevant part of the discussion, now is it?

Sure, you can talk about him being a soldier, but really, it's about a veteran getting mad at the cops. It's not about whether he did or did not serve ( He did). It's not about whether or not his uniform fits him ( It does).

It's about a soldier getting mad at the cops for attacking unarmed civilians. And frankly, I don't care what name you call the guy. Like I said, it is not about the man, it is about his words!

What he said is right. It takes a coward to attack unarmed civilians.

Now, does that make me a tool? If so, so be it.

That said, I can and will reply to anyone I like. Like you said, I will have my conversation and you can have yours. Mine just happens to point out that his words are what is important. Not his service or uniform.

Hmm... Turn off the news and go to the protest yourself... Because it is NOTHING like you just said.

The news lies and this guy is not a plant... he is Lance Cpl. Shamar Thomas.

it's called disinformation when you sound as if you are genuine but the the message is clearly orchestrated propoganda. The greedy capitalists are running scared.

Yeh so you say.

We'll see then you'll all tell stories of brilliance to your young ones saying you were there and that you made a difference when really you did not.

This veteran knows how change comes and i got nothing against these guys as these guys are men of action. Unlike the rest and if you are on about the nyc police battering the protestors on the 5th or something. I've seen it a million times nothing comes from it except a good battering normally for the normal folk!

No, I don't say anything aside from stop taking the news's word for it. Don't even take my word for it! I say go see for yourself and then decide for yourself. Don't let anyone think for you, but you!

You are spouting off so many bogus news points that it is sickening.

Go see for yourself and decide for yourself because, as of right now.... You don't know what it is like!

Go see for yourself, is what I say.

You have seen it a million times? You have not seen an international occupy wallstreet movement. At all. This is not just in New York, This is all over the world. This is nothing like anything you have seen if you think this is just a few morons looking to get beat up.

You simply don't get it and that is why I say, go see for yourself! Stop letting the news think for you.

Until you go see for yourself, you are making yourself look bad because it is clear that you don't know what you are talking about... There is a reason people are calling your words disinformation...

Hmm, not sure what combat zones you have been to, but that also raises the question of whether or not you were a fobbit or something of that nature. As far as thinking you know what the Army is allowed to do, that statement makes it clear that you have never been to Afghanistan or a real warzone. Correct wear of the uniform completely goes out the window there. So unless you really know what you are talking about, please don't take shots at me. This is about the fact that it is wrong for police to harm innocent civilians, not about whatever you want to make it out to be. If you can't agree with anything then stop reading this thread just to disagree with and attack people.

Did we really need two threads about the same topic on the main page?

Before the other thread was hijacked by a troll or paid shill, I made a few observations I would like to repeat here if I may since there still seems to be some confusion:

1. He reacted the way he did because:


The NYPD ignored his questions and continued telling protestors to leave the sidewalk otherwise "they'd get hurt."


mikenormaneconomics.blogspot.com...

2. Thomas is a 24-year-old Marine Veteran (2 tours in Iraq), he currently plays amateur football and is in college. Thomas comes from a long line of people who sacrifice for their country: Mother, Army Veteran (Iraq), Step father, Army, active duty (Afghanistan), Grand father, Air Force veteran (Vietnam), Great Grand Father Navy veteran (World War II). (less info)

3. He served 5 years in the USMC between 2003-2007 and was honorably discharged.

4. His YouTube channel is here: SgtShamarThomasUSMC's Channel

5. He will be appearing on the Keith Olbermann show tonight.

Do you need DNA samples as well?

The important thing is that he could not believe what he seeing in his own country. He risked his life and served honorably to defend American freedoms, only to return and see American rights and freedoms being trampled on in his own country. The vid has gone viral, get used to it.

I would love to see many more veterans show up at the protests and do the same thing as this guy.

After spending the last few days debating against the "Occupy" ideology, I personally think its time for me to ignore the movement entirely. All this protesting is keeping the economy from growing, and its preventing people from actually going out to look for work. Once they vote in the Democrats they want, purpose behind "OccupyWallStreet", we will have another run-away government in place. Obamacare is the first of many-many-many mandates and regulations, which Obama, Congressional Democrats, and "OccupyWallStreet" will shove down everyone's necks.

Regardless about what is listed in their manifesto, the primary and sole function of "OccupyWallStreet" is to get Obama and other world Democrat politicians re-elected.

"TeaParty" - grassroots movement hijacked by the Republican Party. "FoxNews" now controls the deflated movement's message.

"OccupyWallStreet" - hijacked and controlled by the Democrat Party. Ad Busters, creator and copyright holder of the name "OccupyWallStreet", is a left-leaning socialist magazine from Canada.

We have been down this road before. Unless the movement comes out against both the Democrats and Republicans, I will never-ever consider them to be independent and leaderless.

Occupy Wall Street - Site Link: Occupy Wall Street

AFL-CIO (AFSCME), United NY, Strong Economy for All Coalition, Working Families Party, TWU Local 100, SEIU 1199, CWA 1109, RWDSU, Communications Workers of America, CWA Local 1180, United Auto Workers, United Federation of Teachers, Professional Staff Congress - CUNY, National Nurses United, Writers Guild East

All Democrat leaning unions. Majority of them have lobbysists, so they can rape the average American.


VOCAL-NY, Community Voices Heard, Alliance for Quality Education, New York Communities for Change, Coalition for the Homeless, Neighborhood Economic Development Advocacy Project (NEDAP), The Job Party, NYC Coalition for Educational Justice, The Mirabal Sisters Cultural and Community Center, The New Deal for New York Campaign, National People's Action, ALIGN, Human Services Council, Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State, Citizen Action of NY, MoveOn.org, Common Cause NY, New Bottom Line, 350.org, Tenants & Neighbors, Democracy for NYC, Resource Generation, Tenants PAC, Teachers Unite

All have lobbyists taking taxpayer money, so they can hijack elections, push social agendas, and waste money.

Did anyone notice that MoveOn.org is listed? Obama gets campaign contributions from MoveOn.org.

Don't fool yourselves.

"OccupyWallStreet" is a 'global' Democrat/Socialist political movement, which is gathering voters together for Obama's 2012 election.

Even though the site OccupyParty is not controlled by "OccupyWallStreet", the information on the site is 100% true. All of it. Its is controlled by MoveOn.org.

How the crap does everyone think this will end? Seriously. Unless you have stopped watching the mainstream media, (MSNBC, CNN, CBS, FOX, etc..), you would have known how Democrats are lining up in support of the movement. Why is the media covering this issues? Outside of the FoxNews Network, the others think you are a Democrat political machine. Why? "OccupyWallStreet" hasn't come out to say otherwise.

Sarcastically, "I wonder why they haven't protested against progressive ideologies?" Its because they support socialism.

Its that simple.

What you said might make some sense... If it was not an international movement from all walks of life, genders religions, political affiliations and more.

Try as you might, this has nothing to do with Democrats. It has to do with EVERYONE. They are not a political group and have been taken over by no one... Unless you think the US democrats control those Asian protestors, those European protesters... The Republican protestors and on and on and on.

So, no.... It's not. The movement has made it clear they are not affiliated with any political party. This is NOT a political movement. This is a movement of the people. Unless you can prove that all the people in the world are democrats, what you have said, does not really make sense.

This is a movement of people from all walks of life, all political backgrounds, genders, races sexual orientations.

I will not listen to your bogus political spin on a movement by the people. Not a political party... People... From all over the world.

Shame on you for suggesting other wise.

Good day.

The man is a Vet and an honored hero... The police know better than to mess with this. Not because the guy is big (he's fekken huge".., but because that would turn a lot of vets against them across the country. And when a lot of vets are turned, a lot of currently serving personel will follow suit to support their comrades.

Police wrer wise to move on..

There should be a guy like this at every protest.!!

Long time lurker here but I just had to reply to this. Maybe its a bad way to get a first post, but who cares...

Just tell me what exactly changed since last time he was here? Its same # as it was 6, 7 or 8 years ago, is it not? Why did he decide to go all muscular at this moment?

I am not saying that guy is wrong, tho we could argue if he was really deffending his country by going to Iraq or Afghanistan (not saying he was not there, just saying that raiding someones else country so you can spin war money making machine is not defending IMHO).

What I want to say is that I think he went a bit over the top there. I support OWS movement, but in same time I realize it is normal to have police at protests. He acted just like he wanted to be in the center of attention. Line is very small between peaceful protests and riots (like ones that were in London), police just has to be there...

Yes world is #ed up place, but I am glad you, people of USA are finally waking up and get to see how #ed up capitalism and corporate greed is.

Sorry for any bad English/grammar mistakes, English is not my native language.

At the heart of "OccupyWallStreet" is a certain reality, which many-many people on this site know is true. United States of America and Europe will not survive into the next century. As a result of two colliding and unbending ideologies, both civilizations will be left fractured and weakened. Once our societies are at their weakest, the door will be open for a third world invasion.

Link: Balkanization

Balkanization, or Balkanisation, is a geopolitical term, originally used to describe the process of fragmentation or division of a region or state into smaller regions or states that are often hostile or non-cooperative with each other[1], and it is considered pejorative.

Congrats to "OccupyWallStreet", "TeaParty", Republicans, Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives, and Progressives from around the world. You folks are doing what third world countries have been trying to do for centuries.

"OccupyWallStreet" is a global movement that will bring in a new world order, which will destroy the very foundation in which the United States was founded upon. Once they open the next door, the violence "OccupyWallStreet" brings will end everything we hold dear. Even though "Occupy" believes they are doing the right thing, the reality of our overall situation is the reverse. Yes, we have problems with politics and corporations mixing, and we do need to find a more affective solution. However, the core of our problem is much bigger than we realize. Before we are able to find a logical solution, the next phase to this chaos will leave irrefutable damage.

We will no longer be a United States, and there will no longer be a European Union.

We will not survive into the next century.

Congrats, our end begins here.

Wow good to see my fellow service men standing up to these spineless jelly fish! I guess the Banker scum did not pay them enough to batter someone their own size, sex and trained in combat. They are all fired up when it comes to 120 pound women just whaling away without fear or reprisal now aren't they? This reminds me of the end of the movie Revenge Of The Nerds
before your time if you dont remember it

I love how some people are so quick to jump to conclusions such as him NOT being a Marine, well i guess the same could be said for those cops. Just because they are wearing blues, a badge and carry a gun down not make them cops. So yeah see what i did there?

Buy yeah, he seems like he is dead serious. Paid actor? Hahahaah FOX news much?

Here is a better video



Im also a vet and I am about the same size , I think i might try this myself
