4. I've seen some posts before this incident to the effect that they hoped it served as a flashpoint.

22. I've been reading all the OWS threads & I've never seen a comment like that here.
It's weird to post such a general statement without backing it up with the actual comments you supposedly read.

24. Links?
I have reads of worry and concern, not words of wishing folks got hurt. I am not here 24/7 so either I missed something, or perhaps you and I read the same threads differently.

If there are not multiple links to multiple threads to suggest several people are expressing such a sentiment, than it seems to me that this post is simply an attempt to discredit DUers and to Discredit OWS.

I can not respond til tomorrow, but if you link some different threads (as in multiple to fit your titles) I will bookmark this and respond to those directly. Or if we have a counter view on what the intent of OPs we can discuss that here.

Otherwise that is a very harsh accusation.

26. the key word is "some"
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 09:12 PM by aint_no_life_nowhere
You get a worldwide movement together and there will be all kinds of emotional reactions on the parts of "some". Fox so-called news is having a daily slime fest by pointing out what "some" occupiers have written on a sign or stated to reporters. People are more than angry and there's worldwide suffering. Emotions are high. I think the OWS protesters have bent over backwards to be mild and reasonable, considering the way Wall Street has caused so much suffering.

When people post big old stinky bullshit all the time and offer nothing to even try and back it up. I think there is a word for those who do that.

40. How long since your last sobbing apologia for your lack of
communications skills, tact and common ethics? Seems like I just read a whole mea culpa from you recently. This OP makes that one seem nothing but pretense.

47. Why would you seek a way to frame your right wing OP in a
better light after so many called you out for it? That was the question right? Because your OP could have said anything you wished, and it stands starkly as it is. Your OP is either intentionally slanderous or staggeringly off the mark. Your history here is well known.
How long HAS it been since you last posted a general apology for your poorly phrased postings? Under two weeks, I think. One week?
'Oh, forgive me, sob, sob, I don't mean to be like that'....wearing so thin for so many here. So thin. For so many.

Considering there are millions and millions of supporters, maybe more than half of Americans, depending on what poll you look at, supporting the OWS movement, there is bound to be one misguided, twisted asshole who feels that way.

:shrug:

But your weird, veiled assertions are almost as twisted.

Your OP said that "We hoped for violence....the we being the honest tax paying, hard working citizens of the United States of America. You are so fucking wrong that it is pathetic, and I for one will fight you to the end of my life.

So how many Occupy Wall Street supporters did you find who were hoping a protester got hurt?

Two out of tens of thousands?
