You are ridiculous.
So provide it. I can't discount what hasn't been provided. Or, are you just going to run a bunch of arrest stats stripped of context? Like - what were the arrests for? How many protesters were there? Remember - we're talking about "most" here and if we don't have numbers for comparison, how do we define "most"?

Since this is so "ridiculous" it should be pretty easy for you to debunk with actual facts right?

It's been provided before and all you've done is dismissed it because it didn't fit with your agenda of ridiculous apologetics.

There's a saying about throwing pearls before swine....

You can just save your breath Coyote.

Some people have a narrative to get out regarding the OWS, and no amount of reason or facts...will sway that.

It is much easier to attack a portion of the protestors (because quite frankly, there are some fringe elements in the groups).... than to address the reason for the protests in the first place.

The blog linked it's claims to other sources. Nice try sweetcheeks but don't blame me for your inability to follow links.

Where have actual numbers been provided?

Numbers of protestors?
Numbers of actual violent incidents?

I've kept an eye out and have yet to see it provided. Instead I see all kinds of deflection and insults bandied about.

I think you've pretty much hit the nail on the head here - it's the unruly element that gets the most coverage (just like the Tea Party) and yes, they are more unruly than the Tea Party overall but - that by far doesn't make it "most of them" - they are also a much bigger movement overall, in terms of numbers of protestors. Even police keep saying in many incidents - they are mostly peaceful, but that gets quickly slapped down by those who deplore the same tactics when use against their pet movements.

Doesn't change the fact that a blog is nothing more than opinion. Try again, sweetheart.

You see what you want to see in order to continue justifying your ridiculous apologetics.

Ask till you are blue in the face. I'm not repeating information that's been given to you on multiple occasions that you have just dismissed.

Pearls before swine.

Again - where were those numbers provided? You can't find them can you? Because they've never been provided. Just lists of arrest articles.

Nope, it doesn't change what a blog is. It does however, reveal an inability or unwillingness on your part to check for sources becuase it's easier to dismiss the points raised then it is to refute them.
