Seems like the Feds know more about the evolving agenda of the movement.

End the Patriot Act: Osama Bin Laden is dead. It is being used against legitimate political protest in America:

What does the Patriot Act have to do with Osama Bin Laden? He was one terrorist in the sea of thousands, he just had more money. That's like saying end Obamacare because one person survived cancer.

"18 mayor confrence call ...on how to supress Occupy"

Hmmm not sure if I care about her personal perception on the level of violence. I think it was over the top too.

OTOH I am pretty sure that this kind of organized effort against a movement that is "fizzling out" means that maybe we are really hitting a nerve. Don't let this slow our progression. If we weren't hitting a nerve we would be wasting our time.

Not a chance. Obama is hoping this thing lasts until early summer, so then he can create some disaster and then promise them all the world, thus sweeping back into office with the help of the mobs on the street.

Naomi Wolf is an idiot.. She calls the police brutality "unparalleled" in US history. Really? Tell civil rights activists about that. She sort of loses credibility right there from the get go in that article.

Ok, so there has been worse police brutality - but it's a bit much to call her an idiot and disregard the content of the article for that small error. I'm guessing as a writer she's using hyperbole.

No, she also calls the PEOPLE in OWS inchoate. I think she means the movement is inchoate, unless she really thinks you are all babies. She is an idiot.
