This content is user submitted and not an official statement

they are most likely in opposition to OWS and not what they project. they are most likely under the assumption or intending to paint OWS as a leftist movement. they are here simply to pi$$ you off and make OWS look bad.

Hmmmm. statements like occupy the foreclosures I suppose. Pay no attention to this kind of statement. It would make it too easy to find all the dissenters that way.

You know most of them aren't part of the 1%, they don't make enough. They are carrying the water for the 1% hoping to get a glass someday.

I am at Occupy Atlanta-food is OK-but thats about it. Heard the food in Zuccoti is better so thinking on making the trip. I can get early flight out of Atlanta in the morning, however if one could be so kind as to let me know what is on the menu for Tuedsay. Thanks in advance.

You're also forgetting trolls. Not everyone has a dog in this fight, sometimes it's just funny to watch people who've gotten so angry they've turned their brains off fall for bait.

If you want to avoid falling for that, don't type angry.

It's a people's movement. My view is that most Americans are instinctively left, but that they don't realize it. Americans tend to shy away from ideology, which is actually quite smart. Ideology leads one to fundamentalism, which makes ideas a prison, not freedom. Search for truth and you find the enlightenment attitudes of the 19th century, where progressive ideas come from. As American as apple pie.

Shit, are there even any protesters left on this forum? Last time I checked, it was all right wing trolls, kicking the crap out of the few leftists who decided to stick around.

hell i would say 1% here are the protesters

[-] 0 points by MikeyD (581) from Alameda, CA 2 years ago

So it really is a protest of the 1%? I knew I hung out here for a reason!

They are lying shit

You forgot "necklacing", ANC style. The amount of violence spewed on these forums makes the mind reel. And that is one of the many reasons why its doomed to utter failure. Which is very depressing.

Anger motivates the movement, but it shouldn't get out of hand. Shills are the evil tentacles of the 1% and they have attacked me with shit and lies for 5 years now.

[-] 1 points by sensiblebystander (31) 2 years ago

Right. I guess you can't wait until you're the 1% of this so called "movement" - as a "history buff" you might recall what happened to Kamenev and Zinoviev. Retard.

K and Z were right, I'm for direct democracy

Better yet. Why not prove them wrong? Ignoring it just makes it look true.

They are most likely paid political operatives of the Koch type; If they are not paid they are psychopaths; if you convince them they lose their jobs; ie you're never going to convince them they are wrong. So you should do the worse thing you could do to someone in a forum: ignore them.

Most likely they are not. Real people are skeptical. I am an advertising exec. Trust me. You are making real mistakes.

[-] 1 points by Socrates469bc (608) from New York, NY 2 years ago

Let me put it in advertising parlance then: The paid operatives are examples of false advertising; or in ordinary parlance: Con Artists.

[-] 1 points by RexDiamond (585) from Idabel, OK 2 years ago

But it is only a theory that paid posters are trying to derail the protest. You need to be clear about your origin, true intention and disprove any claims untrue to people who have no idea what paid posters are.

You need to address adbusters and their anti capitalist stance. You need to prove you are not connected to George Soros and other far left loons.

Calling people trolls just makes it appear the accusations are true.
