      everyone wearing a Guy Fawkes mask is a dangerous cyber-terrorist in the employ of demonic Psychiatrists.

      They only number 10 to 15 thousand, but some of them are pretty famous.

    •  are you asking if i am afraid of masked geeks? (0+ / 0-)

      which is what the boys wearing masks at occupy wallstreet turned out to be.  no.  i am not afraid of a bunch of white middle class white boys wearing masks while camping in the park.  but in the early days of occupy wall street it wasn't clear who was behind the masks.

      look, when you put together a group of people to protest economic injustice and you show up wearing masks that symbolize violent protest then people are going to wonder if the group is a mere peaceful protest of the beginnings of a pitch forks and torches mob.

      you know, we all had just spent a couple years holding our breath that nothing violent was going to happen at the tea party rallies where people showed up with Obama is hitler signs.  don't act like there was no context for being concerned about occupy wallstreet at the beginning.  

      bankers working on wall street were reported to have been asking their bosses if they should be concerned about coming to work because their lives were in danger.  and we've all seen that even the biggest losers can show up in public with a gun and shoot people.

      and in any case, it's the goddamn job of protestors to WIN OVER people.  not to make people worry about whether they need to be concerned about the protestors.

      so long and thanks for all the fish
