    At the very least, this is further proof that the protests aren`t supported by just a bunch of young free-loading hippies who don`t know what they`re protesting about like the media wants you to believe.

    Okay, Chomsky has done some decent work in his field of linguistics, but when it comes to politic, economics, and foreign policy, he`s a fapping retard.

    She sets the premise of the conversation as; conflict with the police. Turned it off at that point. The issue is not police vs protesters.

    OWS is going to fail because it cannot focus. Nearly every video or story is about police action vs protesters. It is not a protest for better protesting conditions.

    That + winter are the 2 biggest threats to OWS

    Genius? The man is an idiot and an anti-Semite. So he is supporting a protest full of ... idiotic anti-Semites!

    OK, he might be good in linguistics, but he has no idea how to find reality, let alone make any sense of it.

    @randomxnp, Are you drating stupid? I mean seriously, are you mentally retarded?

    He was born Jewish, just because he opposes Israel doesn`t mean he`s anti-semitic.

    Have you heard about the Orthodox Jews that are anti-zionist? They must be anti-semitic, because Zionism affects all waves of Judaism...

    Get a drating clue.

    "The man is an idiot and an anti-Semite. So he is supporting a protest full of ... idiotic anti-Semites!"

    This statement is so absolutely and incredibly foolish I don`t know where to begin. So I`ll just consider it a joke. It has to be...
    And I`m not going to get into a discussion with Crakr or Ollie (they probably wouldn`t care in any case), that would be "fapping retarded" ¬¬ (Seriously? "fapping retard"? Nevermind...)

    AGit: Perhaps you didn`t notice that this anti-capitalist, anti-bank protest has started to turn anti-semitic as well. A few examples.

    "the protests aren`t supported by just a bunch of young free-loading hippies who don`t know what they`re protesting about"

    Except, of course, they are just a bunch a hippies that don`t know what they`re protesting about. For example, they protest the 15 trillion debt, but at the same time, they want more stimulus spending. They`re too uninformed to even realize how muddled their cause is to the point of hypocrisy.

    The whole movement just became invalid.

    "Perhaps you didn`t notice that this anti-capitalist, anti-bank protest has started to turn anti-semitic as well"

    No, I did not notice. And I`m surprised that you, being capable of logical thought, would infer that from such a small sample. The fact that there are some idiots doesn`t mean that they are all idiots, you are perfectly capable of seeing that.
    It`s if I said that all republicans are like Bill O`Reilly and put a any video of his. Even though I disagree with many things you say, I know you are in no way incapable of logical thought as is Billy.

    Noam Chomsky is the guy who also supported the revolutionary Pol Pot when he was murdering millions of people.

    The right lying over the claims OWS is anti-Semitic.

    Madest

    That would be the Tea Party who have never actually done anything racist, have supported candidates of a variety of racist, and are simply smeared by disgusting little creeps like you?

    Oops, mistype. Shouldn`t post after drinking. Madest, the Tea Party that has never been shown to be racist, supports candidates of various races, and is smeared by lies from disgraceful little creeps like you?

    You lying just shows you have lost. If you can`t be honest, you know you are wrong.
