Chris Hedges Calls Out Black-Block - 'The Cancer In Occupy'

Chris Hedges steps forward with his post 'The Cancer In Occupy' which addresses such things as the use of a "diversity of tactics” and other Black Bloc violent justifying psycho-babble dogma.

These dogma spouting ne'er-do-wells actually threaten the beauty and hope of a continuing revolution. They alienate the masses, who actually support us, and turn them away. If the SPD is looking for who's breaking windows in Seattle area banks, this banal group of losers is probably a good place to start. 
"The Black Bloc anarchists, who have been active on the streets in Oakland and other cities, are a gift from heaven to the security and surveillance state."
The occupy revolution was always about economic justice, widespread political reform, ending war, getting the money out of politics, peaceful creative nonviolent demonstration, not cop hating and baiting, tents or property destruction. 

The black block provocateurs now threaten all the gains the occupy movement has made by becoming the vary thing that we are fighting against. Nothing pleases the 1% or the cops who represent them more. It only gives law enforcement justification to crack more heads and marginalize the vast majority of demonstrators who are nonviolence.  Start your own demented revolution some where far away from occupy please. Maybe you'll eventually realize it take more strength and intelligence to remain nonviolent then to playact the angry macho man.

    They aren't really for most of that. They push for the ruling elites to have more and more power over us, and they also push to censor people who criticise those in power. That is not justice. They push to "Get money out of politics" by getting rid of the First Amendment. A very bad idea. They don't push to "end war" at all, and instead merely want us to roll over when we are attacked.

  2. "Nothing pleases the 1% or the ...."

    And it's time to chuck this rhetorical trick. The OWS movement represents about 20% of Americans. The hardcore enthusiastic Democrats. Not 99% by any stretch.
