How was all this info used to squash the movement?
Or how is it being used now to blacklist the leaders of the movement from gaining the momentum they need to make further change?
I would really like to see this info put into another thread right along side with all of the evidence that showed the grooming and manipulation of the movement by the gov't.
I tend to think that the occupy movement furthered the divide between Americans as well as some other people's around the world.
This line of thinking leads me to entertain the idea that occupy was nurtured in some ways.
But I also think that it came dangerously close to uniting those on both sides of this divide, towards the end.
This may be why the movement almost disappeared overnight.

Forgive me for saying so...but I have to wonder how many here who seem to 'know' so much about what Occupy was and was not, actually lived in an Occupy camp? If so..Which one? Heck, I'll start the show... I was at STL.... Where was everyone else?

You will never trump terrorism with the right to free speach
You will never trump rooms of dead kids with the right to bear arms
You will never trump capitalism with protest.
You never faught when it mattered and now there is no fight to be had.
You use free spreach to talk about guns you will never use except for target practice and robbing liquor stores
You are all affraid and thats why you will never do anything but type you complaints on the internet, till that too is no longer allowed. And at that point you will humbly comply because you are too scared to do anything about it.
Are you waiting for mommy and daddy to come and discipline the government for you cause you dont have the spine?
I wish the government would finally round up you gun totting fanatics before you shake to much from fear and your gun goes off hurting someone.

Yes! it is domestic terrorism, at least in my books. disrupting the financial system could harm a lot of people. A large number don't have enough groceries to last a few days, forget a few months:
If you want to change the system, you have to work from within it. It will be attacked politically and through the media for sure but it can be done.

The FBI actually got it right,
OWS was a seditious movement, perpetrated by enemies of a nation at a time of war. So what's the big deal here? Enemy combatants have always been fair game. Don't want to be a target? Don't act on behalf of the enemy, simple age old concept played out during every war that ever occurred. Nothing new under the sun here.
War on Terror, the war is still ongoing.

And there are people out there right now that think disarming the public is a good idea because our government would never turn on us? This right here in black and white is proof that disarming the public is a bad idea. You are just scum that they scrape from their boot heel and have no regard for your existence. The fact that they even considered it, is as good as going through with it in my book.edit on 12/31/2012 by SpaDe_ because: (no reason given)
