    implies others weren't?

    I don't get it.

    Inconceivable! You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

        that were people at Occupy Oakland that broke windows and such?

        Admitting that there were some jackasses who showed up to Occupy Oakland (or any other movement where there was violence), doesn't invalidate the occupy movement at all. If you want to argue that the people involved in the stupid shit aren't true occupiers, go ahead. They aren't. They aren't the kind of people I want to stand with. But they WERE there, and they DID tarnish the image of the occupations to the media. Sad, but true, and denying it does nothing useful.

        •  What she's denying seems to be that (0+ / 0-)

          smashing windows of businesses that closed in solidarity with OWS makes someone a jackass.
