Nice to see that all the OWS violence and crime was brushed off as “civil disobedience.” Blocking the Brooklyn Bridge: civil disobedience. Rapes, molotov cocktails, assaults, murders, drug use, molestation, public masturbation and defecation, graffiti, destruction of local small businesses: not civil disobedience. Also, might want to update that Public Opinion section. The latest Rasmussen Reports survey finds that 39% of likely U.S. voters hold at least a somewhat favorable view of the OWS protesters while 55% have an unfavorable view. For the Tea Party activists, the numbers are more evenly divided: 44% favorable and 48% unfavorable.
