Re: “Occupy smackdown

Mr. K,
Two things, Mr. Clean's comments are certainly protected speach. He has every right to express his opinion. If it's your opinion that it represents a verbal assault, I'd state that opinion is not shared by the CSPD. The were called about Mr. Clean, more than once, and never did more than talk to him and the protestors. As for the moral high ground, I'd say that he's firmly standing there as he has not resorted to physical violence and has used nothing more than strong language to challenge the position of the protestors. Their inability to logically defend their beliefs leads them to attack him out of frustration and anger.

I also beg to differ on your contention that the people causing issues for the occupy crowd are not of them. Claiming that a person is not with your movement AFTER they do something unacceptable, even though they have been among your protest for days or weeks, does not disassociate them from your movement. This type of behavior does qute a bit to discredit the movement and impacts the overall credibility significantly.

If those "leading" the movement can not control (or expel) the various people they attract as supporters, this movement will degenerate into anarchist chaos (more so than what it is now).

Re: “Occupy smackdown

MrK, perhaps they need to learn how to deal with irritants without resorting to violence? A mature person that is confident of their position would have simply ignored him. Instead, you're excusing their behavior because the "victims are not prepared"?

"Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent." I. A.

When this group of people chose to attempt to belittle me when I was merely passing through, I was able to ignore them... However, I did like being called rich and told I was stealing from others; it let me know my Jerry Garcia tie was sending the right message...

Re: “Occupy smackdown

Odd how disturbing it is for the OCS crowd when someone expresses a differing opinion. Evidently, free speech isn't for everyone?
