"5. Treat protestors like naive children who must be protected from themselves and don’t understand deep economic complexities of markets."
Probably the most common character attack by the people that disagree with the OWS movement.
"4. Call the movement and/or its participants any of the following: confused, unfocused, aimless."
character attacks are pretty effective at getting people to hate or distance from a desired group
"3. Attempt to brand participants/supporters as extremist loons."
The old "they are crazy people" meme.
"2. Dismiss all frustrations as coming from people who want to blame their lack of success on those who are successful."
They are just losers that are rich people haters. Ignore their argument and tune them out. Again pretty effective tactic.
"1. Ignore it. Dismiss it as a fad, things of a bygone era – like parachute pants and the middle class."
I see the media do this often. By even bringing attention to it they legitimize it. So they have learned to ignore it and wait till it goes
Even though OWSoros was a fake tide foundation funded movement that was used to gauge the effectiveness of the system's normalizing mechanisms.
TPsychopathsTB needed to see if thier police state apparatus could coral the enemies of the state without waking up the programmed entertainment
addicted consumer drones in the process.
