your welcome to eat up the propaganda fox puts out but im not. explain to your kid what is going on and that the protestors are not there to hurt them. and then proceed to talk to the organizers of the protest about trying not to occupy streets that are the only routes for kids to get to school. and the protestor who was following the guy is an individual acting on his own. the occupy movement has repeated several times that this is a PEACFUL PROTEST and yes i agree there are many who are fighting for a cause without really knowing what they are fighting for and that makes the movenment look bad but a whole group cant be held accountable for the actions of a few.
Mom just saw this. She said dad wont like it either. why are you guys scareing little kids. There just kids. I would be very scared if i were them. Why didnt the good people stop him. Is everyone like that. Why do you let people like that in the group. I dont like bad people. Mom said something like Birds of many featheers fly toogathers, I dont get that.Holla
It appears there was some very poor judgement involved. The movement knows there will be protesters that do not contain themselves. If they can not manage their group and the individuals wisely, then they should not be doing it. When someone YELLS "This is a PEACEFUL PROTEST" or anything else with anger, they are confusing a child, because the child knows yelling like that is not at all peaceful. AND that is downright scary, no matter what their parent tells them. In addition, children can sense when their parent is scared. Protesting in this situation was bad enough, but crowding in on the children like that is horrific.
You would think adults would know that angry yelling is not peaceful….and this is one of the problems I have with this so called peaceful movement. I am not going to defend everything they do. In fact, right now, I am just patiently waiting to see if they can do anything more than go around and yell, scream, use aggressive close body language, and try to intimidate others in doing what they want.
This is NOT an example of a peaceful protest. On the contrast, this is a perfect example of UGLY, SCARY AND MEAN. And that makes me want to simply walk away.
If the leaders are going to shirk their responsibility of not containing their group, that is not admirable. If someone organizes an event that gets out of hand, that is not admirable and NOT EXCUSABLE. The 'blame game' by those that lead or initiate is not acceptable in my social circles. If you can't PEACEFULLY protest, then don't pretend it is something it is not. The label 'PEACEFUL' does not make it so; the ACTIONS or BEHAVIOR of the movement determine whether or not it is actually peaceful. The 99% are not that stupid.
This is what starts happening when OWS starts adding labor unions just to incress there numbers. There very unions are part if not a large part of out problems in this country. Are they noy aligned with the current President. Do they give Millions to mainly the Democrat party. But the alignment with other groups will mean they will take over everything the group stands for. Whe the President of a major labor union comes on stage to speek before Obama and say that "we are your army".That we should "Take the son of a biches out". If people march along side other groups you are accepting there vision of America as you own and all there actions will now be your problem.
