    The US media doesnt want to report on these riots and protests.

    The protesters are not the tea party, the same tea party that the Media has been saying is racist, stupid, fundamentalist, on the verge of rioting. No no, the anti-obama tea partiers are not the ones protesting here.

    These protesters are all obama supporters. They support Obama and the destruction of capitalism. These are the Leftist Base supporters who still agree with the president. Obama doesnt want us to know who his real supporters are during election season. How is he going to get the independents to come back and vote for him if these people expose his true point of view?


    The 1st protest was like 50 or 60 people last week.

    There was a video released of a group of hippies getting maced who started crying.

    Then that hacker group anonymous released a threatening statement about a day or so ago telling the police not to brutalize the protesters.

    I just saw this article on the news about how there were 700 people arrested on the brooklyn bridge related to this protest thing.

    Police Arrest More Than 700 Protesters on Brooklyn Bridge - NYTimes.com

    It has only been though the news that I have been hearing about these protests. My office is in NoHo which is downtown and the streets are fine here - everyone going about their business with no issues. Its the same way where I live in Midtown.

    These protests must be a small minority of people with nothing else to do. As always, the sensationalist media is doing whatever it can to hype people into believing new york is turning into Greece or Egypt, but it isnt.

    From what I've read is there isn't a coherent message. Just that they're fed up with Wall Street.

    One of these fucks approached my van at the light this AM to give me a flyer...I told him to get a fucking job and get away from the truck before I smash his teeth out

    I've been seeing it all over the news. I think I even saw some bull shit on fox the other day about it while I was at the gym.



    The big thing with this is, its not just some hippie bull shit. It's the recognizing of class-ism and greed. Although I don't agree with a lot of the zealous reports, I do find it intriguing.

    who isn't covering this? it's been on yahoo, msn, cnn, bloomberg, cnbc.

    i think the only thing that hasnt' mentioned it is Keeping up with the Kardashians. And if you watch that bullshit, you deserve the anal raping that is coming your way. lol ^_^

    edit: i will chime in with my .02. well, basically because this is the internet and i can do whatever i want. i do find it ironic that the same non-working hippies that are protesting are the ones that want free shit. i never ask for anything or protest anything because i'm too busy working or going to school. it's so much easier to protest than actually be proactive. if they put that same effort into work, they might actually be better off and not asking for free handouts.

    Cut b some slack lol. When he posted this topic these "protests" consisted of less that 100 people and I'd only heard about them thru local NYC news sources.

    I mean I live here and work within walking distance of he protests and didn't even know about em.

    I heard about them on the daily show I believe it was early this week. And the stuff about officer Tony Bologna was all over Facebook practically right after it happened. And that shed light on the overall situation.

    That is no joke. It's insulting to the people in the middle east that are protesting that some of these people have compared themselves to them.

    I support these protest, it's an amazing collection of the most clueless people, at least what I've seen on video so far. The two in the video were comedy gold.

    I'm going to go stand across the streets from these protestors with a sign. "Get a job hippies". Protest the protestors. They'll never see it coming!
