What if some of those occupiers are veterans with PTSD?

Ever consider that angle, blower?

All within big brothers plan. Concentrate dissidents, infect with the zombie virus, then the CDC puts them in quarantine by shipping them out west to the new top secret FEMA camps.
A thread that could only be started by a bunny of constant sorrow, alas it is as if he trying to sell roses in a fish market.

The insulated, self-important Occupy protesters – with whom Chicago Teachers Union leaders recently declared their “front and center” allegiance – risk developing post traumatic stress disorder, according to their leaders.

All of that daily pouting and shouting can really wear on a soul, they say. And the best way to deal with it is to have a good cry.

Occupy Chicago explains the warning signs in another document titled “Crisis Fact Sheet: 10 Ways to Recognize
the self-important audacity of Occupy shines through in another document, titled “Trauma and Healing." It calls for a healthy dose of self-pity and weeping to overcome the effects of PTSD
If these folks spent half as much time dropping résumés as they do feeling sorry for themselves, they wouldn’t have anything to protest.

But employment would be tantamount to giving in to “the 1 percent” and the evil capitalist system. These folks believe it’s far better to stand around blaming others for the problems in their lives and to demand reparations from those who bother to work for a living.

Those poor Occupiers. What dreadful lives they’ve been forced to lead.

Tissue, anyone?

Damn all this protesting is to much like work, this is way to stressful. Geez these people to lazy to work for their own cause. I liked the idea of OWS at first, then my aunt said she wanted to go out there (doesn't have a job of course) and protest because we are such a wealthy country that people shouldn't have to work if they didn't want to, and the government should take care of them.
apparently she could be doing alot of charitable work If she just didn't have to worry about her bills.

After looking more into it there doesn't really seem to be a clear objective, but that many agree with my aunts views. I don't like getting up to go to work as much as the next guy but it's what I need to do. I'd suggest they could go start a little hippy colony and barter their skills, goods and services, but that too requires work.

Hmmm, they feel they didn't get enough support from their allies(which would be the communists, the Neo-Nazis, the homeless, and Nancy Pelosi???)

I dunno, I guess I'd be feeling sad too if they were my allies.

For the record though, getting maced or beaten is worthy of PTSD, but they did overstay their welcome a bit.

#Occupy should take a few pointers from the Jews in Israel.

The general public there seems to have similar issues.

Difference is ...... they might actually know what they're doing !


Thousands march for social justice in Israel's major cities



At least 7,000 demonstrators march in Tel Aviv; smaller crowds take to the streets in Jerusalem and Haifa.



complete with:

The band Izabo, which represented Israel in the Eurovision contest last week, performed at the Tel Aviv rally.

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.


Did you click the link in the OP and see the name of the website the article is from?



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.


Obviously I did, as I found the source this BS piece comes from.



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.


Sadly it won't as people for whatever reason will stick with sensationalism and lies and completely over look anything that they can't claim isn't a good thing such as stopping illegal foreclosures.



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.


Co-opted by whom?



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


Occupy as a whole only accepts donations anonymously.

What Occupy function are you referring to?



The "Meeting" in Chicago was supposed to be the great Protest we have been waiting for but it never materialized.


Are you talking about the NATO Summit? The one where there were massive protests that began days before?

reply to post by beezzer
 


Did you even read my post? There isn't a massive claim of PTSD nor has that PDF been seen anywhere but in that Breitbrat article. And to say that there's not anything going on at protests (not just Occupy) that can cause short term PTSD, is just being obtuse. Is it comparable to what soldiers go through in war? No, nor do I see anyone claiming such.

Then the PTSD is from being a veteran and not because they are occupiers.
Considering that the occupiers claim PTSD is 'spreading through ranks' it
sounds like it's supposedly a new thing. Any veteran coming back with PTSD
would know it already. Sounds like they aren't veterans in the ows camp ...

Young men and women with no formal training tend to get depressed and troubled when they're beaten, gassed and pushed around by armored ranks of troops, for months.

Now, this article is sensational and the facts are flimsy at best. I imagine some people got affected with bouts of depression and other symptoms and most people didn't. Plainly obvious. I would like to see all of you tough keyboard warriors get beat with truncheons and gassed all day long and you come back and talk to me. Or are you too much of a pussy?

Anyway, this is beyond propaganda, and just a total hit piece, but it saddens me that someone with the wherewithal to get on ATS actually swallows this hitpiece up and gladly spits it back out.

These people are doing something, and its far more than what I'm doing which is virtually nothing. If any of you are capable of having children, and they live happy lives and have other children, etc. What do you suppose they'll think when they learn you were complicit in the destruction of what was to be their future, to why they live in a nightmare of dystopian fiction, because it got progressively worse. "Oh, they did nothing." Do you suppose they'll be glad you were so "tough" as to sit behind your keyboard and lament the only people standing up for your rights? Yea, they'll love that... but what am I talking about, you people won't be having children....

Is Occupy Wall Street a communist movement? Is it being run by socialists who wish to bring down the free enterprise system? As you will see in this article, the answer to both questions is yes. Of course many of the people participating in these protests want nothing to do with either socialism or communism. Many of the protesters are simply angry at the big banks or they just want something to be done about the economy. But the truth is that when you take a close look at the "organizers", the literature and the stated goals of this movement, you see socialism and communism everywhere. As our economic system crumbles, an increasing number of Americans are coming out of the woodwork and are proudly declaring that they are socialists or communists. An increasing number of Americans truly believe that the free enterprise system needs to be brought down and that the answer to our problems is to fully embrace socialism and/or communism. Sadly, this puts Occupy Wall Street in direct opposition to what our founding fathers intended.

If you want to know what these protests are all about, just go down and visit one of them. The following is what Charles Gasparino of the New York Post found when he recently took a trip down to Zuccotti Park....

It’s not an overstatement to describe Zuccotti Park as New York’s Marxist epicenter. Flags with the iconic face of the Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara are everywhere; the only American flag I saw was hanging upside down. The “occupiers” openly refer to each other as “comrade,” and just about every piece of literature on offer (free or for sale) advocated socialism in the Marxist tradition as a cure-all for the inequalities of the American economic system.

Occupy Chicago published the pdf's.

ay what you want, but this is not a sneaky scam by conservatives wanting to smear Occupy.

They've done that to themselves.

Of course! They're filthy, unwashed socialists after all, aren't they! Somebody bring McCarthy back, quick!

edit : seems like we can't raise McCarthy, so let's just stick to the good old, tried and tested, disinfo!

I didn't know I had to vet the writer.

I'm sorry. I will endevour to provide something that strictly caters to you.

Humble apologies.

I already did it for you and have pointed it out twice...there's nothing besides a blurb on Occupy Portland's site which strictly related to police brutality.



I didn't know I had to vet the writer.


You didn't? You just automatically trust what or who you read? In other words you liked the picture the article painted and ran with it. You really didn't know you should look into your news/opinion sources so that you know they are honest? Really?



I'm sorry. I will endevour to provide something that strictly caters to you.


Don't go trying to cast me in a negative light just to cover your own failure. You're doing the exact opposite of what we're supposed to be doing on ATS, spreading ignorance instead of denying it.

So you just ate it right up then? You believe everything you read or just everything you read that is anti- the other guy?

Hey, all you are being asked for is some validity.
Is proving the source of your claim really too much?
If I were talking about how the TEA party passes around copies of rules for radicals, would you just believe me?
