Not so much a justified excuse as an honest acceptance of the nature of these events. Also, how many times are you going to post that ****ing link? This has to be like the tenth time.

I can play that game too.

and what about all the Jewish bashing happening at Occupy ??? events.


explain to me how that is justified. this is a far-left anrachist movement who is showing how hateful they are towards Jewish people
First I must ask, how do you a justify a far right movement comparing Obama to Hitler and the very thinly veiled racism directed at him because of his Kenyan ancestry?

I'm sure if you ask around at one of their events you can find some nut going on about anything you want. I guarantee you can finds someone right here in Omaha blaming, Blacks, Mexicans, Asians, Atheists, Buddhists, the French , or just about any group you want.

Now that's not saying to forgive the actions, but something tells me these videos you're posting are being cherry picked from everything else going on.

You know what's ironic? A guy like Billie who is a "proud" graduate of Omaha North and has openly stated his dismay over the perceptions of North Omaha (an opinion I share), you would think might be more apt to not make overly broad generalizations about entire groups based on the actions of a few.

The nonsense in this thread is just as hateful and bigoted as the nonsense in all the gay threads I started, with even the same haters. Do I need to started a "Mere mention of the word Occupy thread?" LOL

I'm a proud member of Occupy Omaha, I have been to all the marches, some of the meetings and even slept over a couple nights. I even helped them move stuff out when they were unlawfully kicked off 24th and Farnam. If you don't know what the Occupy movement is about read and comprehend an article about it. Better yet, get off your butts and actually visit an Occupation site. We have people out there still, during the day at least. There is absolutely no excuse for the ignorance from the typical haters in this thread. And if your a member of the LGBT Community, we need you too!!! Just realize that *****s are in the 99%!!! (That's my sign!)

I went by 2 occupy sites and was called names at both. While I don't blame every member of your group, I will no longer support your movement because of it. Every time I bring it up your members say it's not true and I must be lying. So some of us have "gotten off our butts and actually visited an Occupation site". If you want the public to support your movement perhaps you need to make sure your members know what is acceptable at your camps. I know of several others that have had the same problem.

the same way many the far left justified comparing Dubya to Hitler between 2000 and 2008.


both were wrong and anyone who makes the comparing a US president to Hitler is wrong.




I could understand if Kim Jong Il or the guy In Iran or some other dictator who has killed many of their own country's people

being compared to Hitler, but one who makes the comparing a US president to Hitler is wrong.

I was just posting it to give a fair and balanced view of the OWS movement

the media refuses to report on these crimes that OWS has caused and the OWS movement needs to reign in the renegades in their movement



yes, I believe there are many in OWS who mean well and arent like those mentioned,

but too many incidents are going on and the OWS movement needs to kick out the troublemakers and perverts and creeps in the ranks.


the only way the OWS will be taken seriously is if they reign in their extreme far-left anarchist elements

Can you provide a link to valid info.

There is so much "info" on the web that I can't find anything without someone's personal slant on it.

I would like to know more.

So you agree that the actions of these people are the fringe are wrong, so why are you trying to act like these actions are representative of the entire group?

You accomplished that the first several times you posted it.

Oh really? Look at the first ten entries on your link. Among the sources are the New York Times, New York Post, Daily Mail (more than once), and a couple local news affiliates.

Don't you (and I'd like to ask the same question to Mike Flynn) think it's pretty disingenuous to allege that the mainstream media is involved in some kind of cover up when about 70% of the sources cited are...the mainstream media?

Fair point.
