OWS visitors beware: The very cause that OWS once stood for has been sold out by it's co-founders. In particular, Justine Tunney, the primary site operator, otherwise known as jart. At one time several years ago, she was an ordinary person protesting on behalf of ordinary people. Unfortunately her current employer Google, a juggernaut corporation you may have heard of, dangled the golden carrot and recruited Tunney as yet another agent of obscene wealth concentrating liberal bashing conservatism.
By mid 2014, it had become obvious that conservatives hell-bent on killing liberal votes had taken over this website. They were here from the beginning in 2011 but after failing miserably to influence the group and losing the Presidential election in 2012, they had devised a new strategy. To pose as disgruntled liberals appealing to liberals and progressives to opt out of supporting 'the system' or voting for any 'duopoly' candidate.
In order to make their numbers appear greater, they did so operating under multiple IDs. A significant number of which were created in 2014 for that very purpose. To kill liberal votes. Meanwhile, Justine Tunney called publicly for President Obama to resign and for her boss, Eric Schmidt, a multi-billionaire, to be 'appointed' CEO of America. Around that time, but only after the site had been taken over by posers going out of their way to kill liberal votes, Justine Tunney shut down the 'sign up' page effectively preventing the return of diversity.
Since then, virtually every comment to be 'best' rated has been with regard to 'the system', the 'duopoly' or most often, Democrats in particular. These comments remain 'best' rated day after day after months on end of being 'best' rated leading up to the mid-term election because those posting them are still using multiple IDs to keep them 'best' rated. Meanwhile, those of us suggesting any support whatsoever for any liberal or Democratic candidate with a chance to win in 2016, even if that support is reluctantly given in order to prevent the greater evil from securing more power have had our comments marked down relentlessly.
After being called out repeatedly for doing so and having their calculated strategy explained over and over by several legitimate users, the worst and most obvious offenders of mid-late 2014, shule, turbocharger, flip, spinoza34, DNCheadquarters, johannus and SerfingUSA, all of which have expressed identical views literally hundreds of times combined, the later four of which accounts were created within days of each other in early 2014, have drastically reduced their posting frequency.
Meanwhile, in a most obvious transition, far too smooth and simultaneous to be a coincidence, several IDs which had been almost entirely inactive in 2014 have taken their places. Posting the very same arguments regarding 'the system', 'the duopoly' or Democrats in particular. Only making occasional reference to Republicans and always as a token only. As usual, the attacks on Democrats, often naming Hillary Clinton in particular, are marked up almost immediately to 'best' rated while any sort of defense, reluctant support of Democrats, even as the 'lesser evil' or attacks on Republicans are marked down. Often into negative territory.
Same games. Different names. All of which have gone out of their way to support Tunney in spite of her profound betrayal and sell-out of the very cause, the corporate/1% mantra which OWS once stood for.
I don't know how to make this any more clear to those of you visiting this site. It should be painfully obvious after considering the ongoing trend, the utter predictability of the same arguments marked up 'best' rated every single day, the near identical views and attacks on those of us who disagree, Justine Tunney's employment with Google, her publicly stated views regarding liberals, her mid-term election year decisions to close the 'sign up' page, call for Obama's resignation and her recent decision to shut down this site as a new group of IDs, previously inactive for months on end take the places of others in a perfectly executed transition obviously intended to close out with the same politically motivated arguments which ultimately benefit conservative candidates.
Don't fall for any of it. Do your research, watch the polls, hold your nose if necessary and VOTE. Even if that means voting for a lesser evil.
Make a choice or it will be made for you.
