everytime I see footage of the thugs pushing riot police...

...at the White House, I can't help but think about how riot police pepper spray or beat the living crap out of peaceful demonstrators from the left.

1. exactly... however, it was deliberate provocation for the media who far outnumbered the protesters

so, not a bad thing that the police didn't take the bait.

11. The police didn't mind taking the bait when they were beating

Iraq Veterans nearly to death and 80 year old women during the OWS protests. Where were the Robo Cops armed with militarized weapons who were all over the place during the OWS demonstrations?

I think the world knows the answer to that question.

15. Authority is by definition anti-left

 

The police took the teabagger's shit because they are on the same side.

2. I know what you're saying, but...

 

...the opposite is never true. Cameras don't deter riot police when the demonstrators are from the left. Sprayed, beaten, and arrested. I can't image kids pushing riot police and not getting beaten up and arrested. It just reminds me of how the Right has intimidated us at every level.

8. It's beyond just not being in the club.

We're the enemy.

Have been for a long time, probably since the Russian revolution, I would guess

How many rightist organizations did Hoover or McCarthy investigate?

17. You think and think wrong..

He has played the right all along so that he would be seen not as a threat... ACA his first solid punch to their guts..
More to follow.. And remember the MIC was probably at his throat the first year or two.. He had to get them into his corner before he could do anything.. So if you give me the bullshit about the drones and indefinite detentions etc.
Do you really feel He could have just shut it down... Really!
