OWS Week - Police Tactics of Intimidation

Occupy Wall Street Week: new episode airs each week, now you can catch it here.

Salem-News.com
Here's a link to the latest episode

(SALEM / TEHRAN / EL PASO) - Since joining in solidarity with OCCUPY MARINES, we have been discovering so many amazing things taking place in this movement.

One is a weekly TV show that is being produced from two points; El Paso and Tehran; yes you read that right. OWS Week is the professional weekly roundup of OCCUPY News and Marines and other Veterans and the graphics, the tempo, everything about it is interesting and highly informative.

Never let anyone tell you the OCCUPY movement is unorganized, it is simply not true. While anal retentive ├╝ber organizing will not be a part of this picture, the military element in OCCUPY is bringing a sense of logic and determination that was not seen in the early period. It would have been a lot to expect, this is after all, a movement of great passion, with this comes an artful and creative set of people.

Our regular visitors know we share content with Press TV in Tehran and have always valued their lack of bias in covering U.S. stories. Several Salem-News.com writers write full time or on occasion for this agency. All of the big pharma ads, insurance company commercials; they are conspicuously missing from Press TV reports.

Kathy McConaghie from Blazing Kat Productions in El Paso, is working with OCCUPY MARINES and she is also working as the liaison between the group and Salem-News.com. She describes the vibe behind the show as extremely positive and she says the energy has been constant.

This is the Press TV description of OWS Week:

    OWS Week highlights 7 days of the protest movement's happenings as viewed from American protesters' eyes, while also examining the wide range of social issues addressed by the Occupy movement in the U.S.

It would be interesting to see a list of Marines who deem it appropriate to be connected to Iran in even the smallest of ways,but I doubt there exists many who would. It reminds me of the group "Vietnam Veterans Against the War", a significant percentage were people who had never been in the military, most could not even find Vietnam on a map,nor their asses using both hands. Same thing for many (non-veterans, in military clothing) of those who surrounded the liar and coward John Kerry-Kohn (Zionist--check out his VOTES!) when as a runty 20 something testified in front of congress claiming acts that never happened and of course no evidence to support his lies. Happening today, more groups embracing various ideologies striving for their irrelevant time in the sun, making assertions that have no basis in fact, just emotional shrieking on their part. I pity many of these misguided people, but many are, in some cases, engaging in terrorism against America, and there will be prosection, and severe sentences when (not if) we declare war on radical Islam, for it is these radicals that are behind the scenes funding much of the propaganda many of you fall for. Read the 1st Amendment, and educate yourselves on it's limitations in time of [declared] war. Ex Post Facto may apply in a military court proceeding.

Editor: You'll have a hard time ever seeing the day you describe.  You are funny, slamming radical Islam and Zionism in the same story.  But this is right wing kooky so what should we expect?

Infantile. The characteristics of a baby or child, says Webster's. Being infantile is a charming characteristic -- in a baby or child. In adults? Adults charged with the serious responsibility of discussing or actually running public policy? Never good. As seen here in this story about Occupy Wall Street. The Death of Liberalism. An astute recognition that Liberalism's defenders are being reduced by the day if not the hour to the political equivalent of the survivors of Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg, the latter known to history as the high-water mark of the Confederacy. A great swarming, savage last-assault across the political battlefields into the incessant cannon and rifle fire of the American majority. Leaving in the aftermath not only massive Liberal casualties on the battlefield, but inducing a sense of crippling psychological failure among the Liberal survivors, of which at the moment the Occupy Wall Street debacle -- they of the defecating-on-police-cars and rape tents crowd -- is the most vivid example. They have no substance, just illusion. Soon to be forgotten.

Editor: Let the publishing of this post that I highly disagree with, prove that good writing can get you over a few humps in this life. It is the product of a passionate, gifted writer who is scared shitless because Marines joined in this OCCUPY engagement.  Isn't that cool?  'Liberal casualties on the battlefield' where does one sign up?
