racking up bills for the cities in which they gather.
If there's one thing I'm really getting sick of, as far as conservative attitudes towards Occupy are concerned, it's the claim that they
are responsible for the expenses incurred as a result of policing them. The only reason why you believe this, is because you refuse to believe that
the basis of police action against Occupy has consistently been brutal, psychopathic, and completely legally and morally illegitimate.
I'm not saying I never have conflict with Occupy supporters here; I do. I've written at length about the Marxist connection. As far as I'm
concerned, it is
The thing that I've noticed about conservatives though, and you're a good case in point with this, jibeho...is that they refuse to think in terms of
anything other than stereotypes where Occupy are concerned. My own profiling of Occupy as Communist comes from direct observation; I can go to the
web sites, listen to what they say, compare it with known Marxist philosophy, and draw a conclusion from there.
Conservatives don't do that, though. With the possible exception of Breitbart himself, most of you haven't engaged in anything remotely like due
diligence, where learning about the movement is concerned. Your stereotyping is generally based on the civil rights movement from the 1960s. As much
as you might refuse to acknowledge this, Occupy are
different from the groups that existed back then. It is inevitable that they would
be, purely because of technology, if nothing else.
If you've got legitimate criticism of Occupy as a movement, that's fine. One of the ways in which I'm different from the people here who are
unequivocally supportive of Occupy, (such as XPLodER, primarily) is that I don't believe that people should be denied the right of expression if they
disagree with me; nor do I necessarily interpret negative feedback as a form of personal attack. One of my main grievances with Occupy supporters is
the fact that they tend to do this. You either love every single thing about the movement, or you're considered an enemy of the people.
As you'd know from following my threads, I have quite a lot of issues with Occupy myself. Most of what you say, however, is not only repetitive, but
also oversimplified and terse; you really do come across as persistently trolling, purely for the sake of being antagonistic.
