Unfortunately, most people will disagree with you.
What he did was courageous, and he spoke with his heart. I'm sorry you see it the way you do.
Look, I saw NOTHING but a man yelling at and provoking a large group of police officers. I saw no abuse, I saw nothing but one man posing as a
Marine, yelling and repeating the same phrases over and over (kind of like how the MSM does when they want to indoctrinate us with something). Those
are the facts I have. So, my "truth" is dependent, to a certain degree, by what I see, and what I see is not the whole story.
I'm shocked that so many people have fallen for a half-baked video, hook, line and sinker, with NO evidence whatsoever to back up his claims as a
Marine, or his claims of what the police were doing.
No need to apologize for my ability to use my brain and not believe everything I see, even if it happens to further my beliefs.
So do I support peaceful gatherings? Sure I do! Those are our rights! Do I support this one? If it's peaceful, yes. Some things I have seen have
not been peaceful, and so those people need to be removed and dealt with. I also support law enforcement. So if someone is provoking the police,
then they deserved to be arrested, and I don't believe their rights are being taken away, nor do I believe we live in a communist country. There is
no "right" to that sort of behavior in this country. Sorry, but protesters can be pretty stupid sometimes. Which brings me to my next point...it
appears that half of them don't even know why the heck they are there!!
But I've disliked Wall St. for years, and at least I know why. I don't like corporations involved in politics...they basically run this country.
If the protesters could get their crap together and figure out what they're fighting for, rather than looking like a bunch of idiots with nowhere to
be, then maybe more people would take them seriously, rather than just blindly jumping on the protest bandwagon again the mean, nasty, rich people,
because somehow they've prevented all of us from becoming rich as well?? Give me a break.
As for this guy, he's made a big stink over a stupid non side story, and didn't even address anything to do with the issues at hand. Hardly
