26. I don't see any DUers
"calling people conspirators, trolls and corporate stooges for asking questions and ... for supporting OWS".

You're doing the same thing as the OP. Instead of discussing the issue - the aims and tactics of OWS - you're making it about DUers and throwing around claims that I see no evidence for.
