I don't see any Democratic propaganda organizations creating "documentaries" to smear the movement:

Produced by a group called "Citizens United" which tweats Fox News propaganda all day: https://twitter.com/#!/Citizens_United

Notice that the bots only attacked people that expressed support for Democrats or were neutral in the political debate here. The pro Romney supporters and Republican trolls were left alone:

The progressive press on the net are indeed about the only outlets left that do still support OWS and report on it in a positive light.

I've been attacked, mostly for posting anti GOP info.

I witnessed NO "right" wingers attacked in any of the bot runs.

yeah, why is that? some good people were caught up in it too, not their falut

All of this would be a moot point if we could have categories/sub-forums on here. The political pandering is off-topic according to forum rules, and should be separated from the discussions on income inequality, the 1%, OWS, etc.

My post about Obama refusing to sign an executive order that would have barred discrimination based on sexual orientation is 100% factually accurate.

Refusing to sign this executive order is something Romney would have done. Only Romney would have said he didn't sign it because of his bigoted views instead of making some dumb excuse like Obama. That's the difference.

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Wow you cited me in this?

Well here's what my link states

If this happened under Bush... maybe the democrats would speak out against this like they did during Iraq.

Gaddafi threatens to destroy a city of "rebels." Saddam also killed his own people.

In order to prevent this from happening, Obama and NATO then destroy the city of Sirte.

The assault on Sirte, a city of 100,000 people, left virtually every building smashed, with untold numbers of civilians dead, wounded and stricken by disease, as they were deprived of food, water, medical care and other basic necessities.

Hypocrisy anyone? Here's some photos of the destroyed city where civilians lived.

http://www.informafrica.com/blog/photos-of-sirte-after-the-nato-bombing-in-libya/

What was done in Libya was not a solution. Why would NATO and Obama resort to destroying a city and putting a country in turmoil over threats, if diplomacy once before got Gaddafi to turn down the idea of having nuclear weapons?

Dennis Kucinich railing against Al Qaeda ties with the Libyan rebels.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSUnluGSOdM&list=FLEwSllwonAZBCc7W3e27_dQ&index=43&feature=plpp_video

NATO commander admits that "flickers" of Al Qaeda and Hezbollah terrorists among the Libyan rebels. This should officially classify them as "associated forces" under the NDAA of 2012. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtGe6zk52Cw

More inhumanity amongst the "libyan rebels" surfaces as they torture blacks on video for being black - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4icorYD_mE&list=FLEwSllwonAZBCc7W3e27_dQ&index=1&feature=plpp_video

How is all of this an answer to the problem?

At the end of this I even side with a democrat, Dennis Kucinich who factually states how what was done in Libya was unconstitutional and could be ruled as war crimes because it was a war of aggression and not self defense.

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

I remember a lot of impeach Bush stuff back in the day. I fully supported impeaching Bush for war crimes. I feel the same way about Obama. Targeted killing programs? Of a US citizen in a country we're not at war with? The Obama administration even gave a 250 million dollar contract in Afghanistan to Bush's Black Water.

There's not a republican president right now which is why you won't see any smear ads against a republican president for their time in office. Does that make sense?

There's plenty of smear ads against Romney for all the crap he's done. All his bullshit in Bain Capital exposed. His bigoted stance on marriage. All that.

Actually I appreciate the mental defectives like IIII... They demonstrate that Occupy, nationally and internationally, has them sweating. I can point to several right-wing sites that indicate they fear an impending collapse. Many of these doomsayers attribute the supposed collapse to "social unrest." http://www.moneynews.com/

The time has come for workers to claim the whole pie, not just a small share.

Hmmm... You really don't understand who I am and what I stand for.

[-] 2 points by TitusMoans (2451) from Boulder City, NV 2 years ago

I have read your posts which basically contain naysaying but make no positive contributions or suggestions. If you mean well, I apologize because I certainly have misunderstood.

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

didn't you say you were republican and supported Romney? You certainly seem like a republican. You certainly are anti OWS!

[-] -1 points by llllIlllllllllllllllllllllllll (-44) 2 years ago

Nope, hard core socialist. I support same-sex marriage, and even polygamy for those into that.

[-] 1 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

Support OWS Vote out anti alternative energy politicians

[-] 3 points by XenuLives (1645) from Charlotte, NC 2 years ago

I may get flak for this, but...

I think some of you may misunderstand III/Thrasy's posts. That poster has helped out behind the scenes, and I don't recall anything specific that he posted that was purely pro-Republican or anti-Democrat. This thread is about trolls like peacup that just post the latest right-wing attack on Obama or Democrats instead of contributing to other discussions. The people who clearly have an agenda to push.

Thrasy isn't a saint, but I'm not his enemy either.

[-] 1 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

Ok. He did threaten to attack me, and frequently uses offensive, vulgar bullying tactics, of course, so although I don't have to consider him an enemy he doesn't usually offer productive posts. And I am not convinced about his politics because I see great inconsistency in his posture/posts. I could be wrong.

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21611) 2 years ago

Um, 'cause they're scared, Xenu. Their perfect little world that they set up to benefit themselves is going to soon crumble.

[-] -1 points by 8675309 (-5) 2 years ago

Should we consider XenuLives and beautifulworld idiots, or liars?

BOTH sides of the two-party tyranny have been assigned by their global elite masters to deal with OWS: The Republicans by killing it, the Democrats by co-opting it. But don't think for a moment EITHER party had anything to do with the down-voting of the pro-regime plants that infest this forum. That was all "us", and we are NOT Demopublicans!

[-] 4 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

You are anti OWS. Thats what you are. And you are a republican plant

[-] 3 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

You curse me bacause you have no strength in your argument. You can't address the issues. Like wall st corruption. Support OWS. Vote out anti fin reg politicians

[-] -2 points by 8675309 (-5) 2 years ago

"You curse me"? Yes. I meant to. And you copy and paste the same innocuous blatherings over and over and over again. Prove you are not a bot...

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

I'm no bot. I'm a protesting OWS supporter who cares about the issues that the 99% care about. Like the environment. Support OWS Vote out anti alt energy politicians

[Removed]

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

Fin reform, alternative energy, Tax fairness, Healthcare for all, these are wedge issues? These are THE issues that OWS cares about. You don't care because you are anti OWS. Support OWS Vote out anti buffett rule politicians

Forgive V. He doesn't understand that anarchists are not Republicans.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (21611) 2 years ago

Okay. So, you are so smart and truthful, right? Some of your monikers included synonyms for the truth, right? I'm well aware of how Reps and Dems are handling OWS, and I want the movement to remain apolitical, however, what you want to do is shrink the movement down from the 99% to the .09%. Not so smart.

[-] -1 points by 8675309 (-5) 2 years ago

So you suggest Grant should grow his army by adding regiments from Lee's?

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (21611) 2 years ago

If his army was the size you want to shrink OWS to Grant would have lost the war early on, say, at Fort Donelson.

We would accept any one who believes in the issues we do. Like tax fairnes. Support OWS Vote out ant buffett rule politicians

"We would accept any one..."

WHO THE HELL IS "WE", SISTER?

You make the same wedge issue posts over and over and over again - ad nauseum - "VQkag". I have no proof, but I'd bet the farm you were SENT here to make the same wedge issue posts over and over and over again...

[-] 3 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

We are the 99% We may not agree on all tactics but we agree on the issues that hurt the 99% like money in politics. Support OWS. Vote out pro citizens united politicians

Attacking each other gets us nowhere, friends.

Attacking each other is how we settled the Civil War, Chump. And sadly, sooner or later, it is how we will settle today's injustices..."

Guns are how we settled the Civil War. guns and a lot of death.

Yes. And your point?

My point is: save it for the enemy, friend.

[-] 1 points by XenuLives (1645) from Charlotte, NC 2 years ago

So you are threatening to kill other Americans to get your way? We have laws that criminalize traitors and people who make death threats.

You're stepping on egg shells, buddy. I'd choose my next words carefully if I were you.

Politics MOST CERTAINLY has EVERYTHING to do with "it" ~ the censorship of Free Speech especially that which conflicts with the dictatorial propaganda that comes from the 1%-owned, RepuliCon, RW, MSM, Fox (RepubliCon-TV) Lies, and Hate-Lie Talk Radio ~ UNDENIABLY and IRREFUTABLY!

Specifically, "conflicting Free Speech" that advocates a solution to the 1% tyranny of our Government, Media, Country and the 99% People: UNITY and VOTING!!!!

Sorry to spoil the party, but we are in a Class War! We, The People, are suffering the casualties, are losing the war, and fight each other instead of who our real enemy is. The real enemy is a group of would-be Kings (the "descendants" from the King of England's Loyalists and Royalists and hate democracy) in the 1%. We abandoned our democracy so they stole it and use it against us to make unimaginable wealth and power. That we might get smart and Unite against them, makes us mortal enemies. That's why we are the most ignorant, divided, non-voting, slave-waged, uninsured, population among modern democracies. All of which makes the "Kings" very happy and rich!!! And they will do whatever it takes to keep it that way!!!

That's the RW, RepubliCon, 1%, POLITICAL reason they sent out their cretinous Zombie Trolls to Censor posts on this Forum ~ and why we have to VOTE to kick and keep them out of our Government, local to DC!!

UNITE AND WIN!

Unite and Win! Unite and Win! 2010 Never EVER Again!!!

Register and Vote! Register and Vote! "We the 1%" NOT What They WROTE!!!!

Occupy the America's Alarm Clock, then Occupy the ELECTION!!!
