If you blindly support the blind then what are you?
Unlike the blind, screeching opposition evidenced by yourself and others, nobody supporting the movement is going in blind. Bottles were thrown? Okay.
As even you seem to admit, this does not excuse the police response. Nor does it discredit the movement - remember, these are the same cops that had
just gotten done committing assaults and vandalism by gassing people out of the park and then smashing all the belongings left behind. if the police
can get away with destruction of property - and they clearly can in many books, so long as that property is owned by people without a corporate
charter - then they can handle a bottle. You know, with their inch-thick body armor, plexiglass tower shields, riot helmets, gas masks, etc.
This is not even anti-capitalism, it's even worse than that
It's pro-stupidity and everyone should pay for everyone equals Socialism!
What a perfect launchpad for full socialism, because it comes from the people
Oh look, another ATS poster who uses words he doesn't know the meaning of. How cute
But what is socialism in a nation cursed with this much special interest groups?
These idiots are protesting and will only end up making the major corps they hate even stronger.
Oh yeah. You're confused. One time when I was really little, i tapped on the side of an aquarium really hard, and the fish kind of started going
sideways. You remind me of those fish, you have this wide eyed "dude, what?" thing going.
There is too much OWS support on ATS!
What ATS are you looking at? The majority of posts on OWS are from blithering morons who just foam at the mouth and rant about socialism, without ever
knowing what the # that word means, or how it could possibly apply to anything in the discussion. And this is NOT counting the many, many posters who
are outright hoping for violence to be used on the protestors.
What happened to focusing on the issues?
What happened is that there are morons who ignore hte issues in favor of derping around like stunned fish and yelling random # about "socialism"
with a clear lack of understanding about either that word, or the goals and interests of the OWS protestors. In other words, the issues are clouded by
people like you who go "THEY'RE ON THE LEFT AND I HATE THE LEFT SO I HATE THEM LALALALALA CAN'T HEAR THEM!!!!"
