care to back up these claims?


Not really., as these points have been covered ad nauseum on ATS and you can research them to your heart's content by using the search function. Once you do that, plop your thinking cap on your head and deploy logic. At that point, you won't be asking silly questions like this one, because you will have been able to figure it out all by yourself.

First of all you utterly failed to check sources, there was nothing issued by Occupy Chicago on PTSD. It's very easy to link a PDF that discusses symptoms of PTSD and make claims on who issued it, except the PDF doesn't even mention Occupy. It's okay though, I did your homework for you.

That PDF isn't being disseminated anywhere on any Occupy related social media. Occupy Portland put out a little PSA on PTSD relating directly to police violence which last I heard was a traumatic experience to either experience or observe. Here's the link to what your little Breitbrat is having a hissy fit over. He must have been so upset he confused Chicago with Portland and decided to attach a PDF written yesterday...wonder if he wrote it himself, wouldn't be the first time a Breitbrat fabricated "evidence" to "expose".

Occupy Portland

Are you calling people out when you have failed to do any research yourself? Even on ATS alone there's enough information on Occupy that tells you that they have NOT been co-opted.

What Id like to know, is what they claim is the cause of the PTSD. Seeing too many people pooping in the bushes next to them? Too much second hand drug use?


No, probably more like 'tired of getting beaten and pepper sprayed by cops while protecting your right to protests as you sit in your comfy chair at home while your civil liberties dwindle down to nothing while you champion the police state'.

The occuPOOPers who claim PTSD because of their protests are insulting people who really suffer from PTSD. They should all volunteer to go help people who really have PTSD and so learn just how horrid it really is. Maybe the occuPOOPers would grow up some ...

After reading this quote/response pair, I mentally heard the announcer from the 1999 version of Unreal Tournament.

The Occupy movement in this Country is a joke. Now, if these Occupiers want to really get down and dirty go to Egypt, Syria, or Ireland. Those Occupiers know how to do it right, actually PROTESTING and not running around like chickens with there heads cut off.

I watched the Chicago Occupiers running around like Rats in a Science experiment, getting cut off by Police and thinking somehow they will outrun Cops in Vehicles and Drones in the sky WATCHING EVERY MOVE THEY MAKE. It was Comedy Gold.

Than, I go on Youtube and watch some Ireland riots in Belfast (again) to see how its really done. The Generation of fighters are GONE but the Generation of Whiners is spreading like the plague.

But when the SHTF there is no one left to fight.

Those are valid complaints. Chicago was a fuster cluck, for sure.

That said, I won't call them whiners while I'm sitting here on my tush and they're taking batons in the face.

Bet you won't see THIS on Drudge, MSNBC or Fox.

Occupiers Convince City Of Buffalo To Ditch JPMorgan Chase

Addiction to MSM is a worse disease than PTSD, the former eats your brain, the latter just gnaws on your heart.


Good for them. I actually mean that though I will look into a bit more.

Occupy, just like the Tea Party started as a grass roots movement that was eventually co-opted by well funded entities.

But there are small groups within both that reject those funds and their ideologies and stick to the core message of that particular group.

One thing though is that I don’t see Tea Party people claiming PTSD. Heck, I’ve never heard of them being tear gassed.

And to ignore the MSM is foolish in my opinion. You just have to read between the lines and look for related stories as well.

Um...Breitbart is dead. He can't post anything anymore and if he could I'm sure that we would see something in the Paranormal forum.


I would suggest that you do your research as well and actively seek out other sources and people who disagree with your line of thinking. Ya know? Just to get the whole picture.

As for the .PDF you can cut and paste almost anything to fit your agenda. I see this story being forgotten before too long, but there will be people who will still try to use this as a excuse to gain monetary funds.

To say the OWS has not been co-opted is just wishful thinking. Just like people who say that the Tea Party hasn’t been co-opted.

But there are people within both camps who do stay on message and reject the big bucks financiers.

I'd say the Tea Party was infiltrated and re-directed more than being co-opted.

Major attempts to do the same thing with occupy haven't been all that successful, although the media will tell you otherwise, and there are agents provocateur out there doing their damnedest to give the movement a bad name. Which is not to say there aren't some off the wall losers involved, but most of the funding I know about is from regular folks around the country who can't or won't stick their own necks out.

I used to respect these occupy people as I viewed them as a group quite simply wanting change and willing to do something about it. I mean I thought they were a bunch of fruits, but whatever they were doing something.

But seeing how they treated Ron Paul, I realized the only change they care about is socialism.

I have no respect for these turds.

Beezer sometimes I read your posts and I think that you are getting something and that you have ideas about what kind of society you believe in, whether I agree or not.

Then you fall back into the lazy, partisan posting looking for the amen corner ego massage. Seriously though, why bother with this stuff - you are smart enough to know its not a worthy topic - unless stars and backslapping really is that important.

Didnt see one protester take a baton to the face at this Occupy function. Now, from what I understand Oakland was a little different but that was like a year ago.

The "Meeting" in Chicago was supposed to be the great Protest we have been waiting for but it never materialized. Other than that, I couldnt afford a ticket so sue me. I did hear some protesters saying they were flown out there by Michael Moore so if MR Moore is seeing this thread right now, PM me and send me my damn ticket. I am ready!!!

A simple "no, because I can't" would have sufficed.

I thought the story appropriate.

I know several warriors/soldiers who suffer from PTSD. It is real. These OWS who claim PTSD insult those who do indeed suffer.

It's akin to going to an oncology ward with a papercut.

Does this mean that every pro-RP thread on this site posted by his supporters is not credible?

Tell me you see the logical fallacy in your insinuation.


Got any evidence at all there is any truth to the story in the OP other than the word of the writer?
Tell me you see the difference.
