Response to Fire Walk With Me (Original post)

53. A worldwide movement can't be condemned b/c someone thinks some "were rude." Stupid to suggest.


Rude? Really? Rude is the problem? We should abandon or dismiss the most vital, active, widespread response to the worldwide destruction and theft wrought by the owners of the status quo because someone claims someone was "rude?"

As far as that goes, they should be rude. Polite's not getting it done. Please and thank you and where is the voting booth please has not helped. This is not the time to select the salad fork and dab the lips with a napkin.

People are pissed. They're not getting un-pissed any time soon. They are reminding the powers that be in this country that when they suppose their "constituents" are banks and defense contractors and oil companies, that they are wrong, and that the needs of the people they are in fact to represent cannot be ignored. POLITELY or otherwise.

The bashing is predictable. OWS does not slot neatly into party politics. It does not support the notion that the anointed representatives need our money so THEY can fix things. OWS points out, inconveniently, that "they" cannot. This is not the accepted paradigm. It does not fit into the Business Plan.

It's not fucking polite.

It's not supposed to be.
