There are a lot of other religious nutbar groups....but we don't paint the main part of the group with their colors.
I got a better analogy...

The Westboro Baptists are a small group out of the large group of Christians who are hated by the large group of Christians who consider them detestable.

These Oakland protestors are a small group out of the large group of OWS that sit side by side with the OWS and are not outcasts by any stretch of the imagination.

If you take away all the people that the OWS supporters keep saying don't represent them at OWS protests, I think that OWS would only be about 100 people at any given event.

Wanna see another example of that?

Quote:
Oakland city council member Patricia Kernighan was concerned about public safety.

She was particularly concerned about the turmoil and disruption that Occupy brought to Oakland. So she proposed an ordinance that would outlaw bringing to demonstrations some of the common “tools of violence” that Occupiers frequently used, such as impact-resistant shields, hammers, aerosol cans, pressurized paint sprayers, paint projectiles, and fire accelerants—all of which have been deployed by Occupy Oakland.

The ordinance came up for a vote on May 22. Occupiers packed the meeting with about 40 people and spent almost 2 hours cursing and yelling at Kernighan and other council members.
Occupy puts out “wanted” poster on council woman, marches on her home with a pitchfork (updated new video) Citizen Journalist


Not content with that they marched on the Mayor's personal home.


So are these guys radicals, or do they have a legitimate grievance against the council member's intent to deny them their unalienable right to bring hammers, and pressurized paint sprayers to riots? I mean after all if they wanted to they could as the woman said just "Kill her with a pencil".

As citizens though, do you allow yourselves to be bullied by mob rule like that, because maybe those 40 don't represent the majority of the movement? Even if you say yes, how many times by how many groups of 40 more or less does it have to happen before you reconsider?

Personally I wish somebody like Anne Bernhardt was the council member in that video above. I'd like to see that tubby little commie threaten to kill her with a pencil.

The OWS includes a huge number of people in a wide variety of geographic areas with varied agendas. When folks - certain folks - focus on only the fringe, the miss the majority of the movement. But I suspect that is the intention.


They squeal though, when anyone attempts to broad-brush the Tea Party.

Oh really?

I'm sure you can provide me a source showing a large number of OWS groups around the country supporting their stance on child sex trafficing.

4, 3, 2....

(tons of irrelevant viral videos showing OWS misbehavior in an attempt to rationalize this)

Correct...

They have white, violent anti-capitalists and black, violent anti-capitalists and Asian violent anti-capitalists and Hispanic violent anti-capitalists...

They run the whole gamut...

The point is there are so many radical fringe splinters in the Occupy movement it requires a broad brush to cover them.

'But hey feel free to post your videos of the tea party burning flags on mayors' lawns and threatening to kill people with a pencil, or screaming and throwing trashcans in protest for more child sex abuse.

I don't see any of the people even in this demonstration saying that they support sex slavery of children.

I didn't say "supporting their stance"...

I said "are not outcasts by any stretch of the imagination"...
