6. Correctly pointing out foolish, self destructive tactics isn't "virulently anti" anything.
The problem is that, again, what people believe on the internet doesn't reflect the real world. You could find plenty of people on DU who thought Code Pink was brilliant and wonderful, while the rest of the world considered them insane kooks, and they set back the idea of an anti war movement in America by years. That's the direction that some people see OWS going in with the latest round of protests, harming the union workers they're supposedly supporting.
