Occupy hasn't failed, I think that's the wrong way to look at it. I look at it more like the media winning, spreading dissinfo and playing it down as much as possible, making the protesters look bad and the darling little boys in blue look good. Brain fodder for those who can't be bothered to find out for themselves.

It hasn't failed at all. IIRC I saw some stats somewhere (can't remember where) but there have been over 1000 occupied locations in 82 different countries. If that is even close to being right, then this is a huge succsess for a first wave type event. And there will be more waves, and they will get bigger. You don't have to take my word for it, becasue, well, I might even be wrong. (It actually happened once back in 1982) I can't tell the future, but I got a tingly feeling that won't quit, it's exited about what's happening. And Anon (who have already helped out in taking out 2 goverments) have promised that 2012 is going to be epic. I have faith in the Anon ideal, the people will reclaim their rights and create a better world for everyone.

OP, out of curiosity, did YOU visit an occupy site YOURSELF to do YOUR OWN research on the movement instead of coming online (meibe even watching MSM news too) and reading others opinions on the movement which may have helped to construct your own?

at the end of the day weather the movement has accomplished something or not, THEY TRIED, CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO CHANGE ANYTHING?
or meibe nothing is wrong, at all, and we live in a world of flying unicorns and friendly witches.



when i found out about this movement i was nothing more than sensational about it, considering that i am not a big fan of wall street, corporations and the fed. and no one was doing ANYTHING ABOUT IT. this movement gave me a chance to express myself in many ways. even tho i DID NOT agree with everything they were doing, i did have a chance to voice my own opinion to change that.

MEIBE INSTEAD OF JUST COMING ON HERE AND VILIFYING ABOUT THE MOVEMENT YOU SHOULD OF GONE TO THEIR GENERAL ASSEMBLIES TO VOICE YOUR OWN OPINION AND HELP THE MOVEMENT BE STRONGER AND IN CONVENIENCE FOR ALL OF US.

at the end, MSM was against them and would vilify about them any chance they could.
i kinda knew myself it wouldn't get too far because of that reason.

Typical leftist symbology the red? yeah meaing the Republicans elitist attitude and the smarter than everyone else just too stupid to think for themselves.

Last time i looked there aren't any rocket scientists in OWS in fact they are the products of liberal America and the Educational system.

Educate that's rich considering where they got their "educations" or lack of it want to talk about vilifying here what about those who do not agree with OWS and the majority of what they stand for.

We know OWS got their education from the "internets".

Yeah well the only thing i spoke about in my posts was propaganda and considering the anit-semitic videos by some OWS supporters wonder if there was any "outrage" about that or the simple fact that the nazi party endorsed and marched with OWS or the Communist and socialist parties.

Sorry considering the history of OWS you chose to "mis interpret" a post on here to get mad about.

Sorry i pass on that.

well i have apologised,
and you seem very unreasonable,

i will not let you rattle me any more you are simply not worth the effort,

OWS will succeed even in the face of this type of thread
thread fail
cYA

In my opinion and mine only....

The "occupation" (ironic as most probably had no occupation) was a complete joke as were the people who took part.

It proved nothing beside the fact that the Elite and Rich had something more to look down on the average person about.

It was all about individuals attempting to gain some attention and in that itself they failed like they do in real life.

All those who took part have zero respect from me. YOU are FAILURES!!

actually the whole "if you aren't with us you're against us" was pretty foolish of the protesters, i do have to admit that. i never myself used that line.

can you tell me where in the poster you see it says "we are the 99%", ANYWHERE?

that's one of the things I DISAGREED WITH ABOUT THE MOVEMENT and was able to voice my opinion on that. didn't prevent me to from participating in it tho.
see, you're jumping to conclusions already and judging people on others acts and behaviors.

Has the occupy movement failed?

Damn right it did.

I have said it all along.

The occupy movement was a fad,
it was in style and a hip cool daddy thing to do, like it was cool at one time to be a
all no bra wearing chick with hairy arm pits,
but fads come
and go.

Just like the occupy movement.

The occupy movement will go the way of
pump up sneakers, and JnCo jeans.
Good bye occupy

Oh boy more ows'ers beating their war drums
Really people
This charade has been most amusing. The evil of Wall street
Obviously without Wall Street NYC would be nothing, no it would be like Detroit. A city that lost it's prime money maker. "Occupying" is a stretch from peaceful assembly. KInda like a police action ya know? You can put frosting and sprinkles on a turd but in the end it's still a turd. To answer the obvious forth coming question as to why my opinion is such, to much ego amongst the protesters. As if your partaking in the protests makes your opinion more valid. Anytime anything negative occurs at a ows protest the people did not represent the movement! REALLY???? Even now it's the evil 1% , not the ignorance of the masses, not the poor decisions made by some homeowners or the manipulation by special interests! It's not just corporations that lobby, labor unions, groups supporting this or that special cause. In the end the worst threat to the American people is the American people. Every half-wit with a cause and like minded fellows can go and play in the lobby game. All at the expense of someone else. Ows has not done anything more then add another group of self-righteous people to the mix, to tell everyone else how misguided, ignorant or in the pockets of someone else.

I deny Occupy.
I deny ANY organization that tries to include me without my permission!



OCCUPY is not a organisation, funny how so many critics like yourself complain about occupy being so disorganised having no leadership then call it an organisation. Yet the tea party is fighting for my rights? You are a big tea party fanboy as we all know right? Well if the police and mayor stiffened the tea party theoretically then that would mean the tea part would have failed. Yet the tea party still exists and guess what?

OWS still exists too... isn't that neat ? When you try and drag down OWS while being a Tea Party advocate you are pretty much kicking yourself in the pants.


As someone who isn't caucasion, I've been forced into "groups" and "categories"s all my life.


How? Ive noticed most blacks, latinos and asians in the city tend to stick together. But sometimes you will find one of each in a group of Caucasians. Unlike the token white guy "me" running with a bunch of black guys. You see nobody forced me to have most black friends. I just happened to grow up on a block with mostly black families.



Like I've said before, I am 1.
An individual.

No group, no class, no category will EVER define me.


Good for you, criticising people that criticise corruption. You have really defined yourself there.

If you’re not with OWS you’re sitting on your couch….blah…blah…blah! Stop using that line because it’s completely pathetic and played out!

The majority of Americans (you know…the ones who go to work) are not down there protesting because they don’t want to be seen with communists and all the others “ists” and “isms” that frequent these events. They don’t want to be involved or associated with the madness that is OWS. It is now a movement dominated by miscreants and instigators who live for the day; no vision, no plan, no clue!

Most Americans fully support many of the things OWS initially stood for. When the freaks came out and joined the party the normal people went home.

The people who don’t understand why OWS has a bad image and has lost support are the same people who just don’t understand why a dude with a Mohawk can’t seem to find a 9-5 job!

Some of you won’t understand that last sentence so just ask somebody around you.

Agreed Neo, and with a lot of them being Ron Paul Supporters...

And the spin there is that he's anti-Semitic (i'm not starting this debate) However like I said spin could be taken that he is anti-Semitic (even though he just wants to pul out everywhere)

it does seem correlated though....

I remember this.I also remember how it was "supposed" to be a gaff,a joke,when confronted with it,and that he KNEW it was a hoax,but put it up there anyways. Now how does one legitimize his right to even talk on the subject,if hes willing to deceive everyone on ATS??
