Word out of Oakland is that our local Occupy protestors are responsible. They didn't like any other anarchists taking their spotlight. There's only so much to destroy and they want sole credit for dragging down society.

Somebody is drinking the Faux-News cool-aide. Pass me some of that crunk-juice, I want to live in a deluded world too!

Edit: man it feels like I"m really trolling hard today. Ah well, when in Rome.

"….the truth is, there can be no civil discussion, no “honest exchange of ideas,” with Leftists. It’s useless to try — in fact, it’s actually counterproductive, and even dangerous. You can’t have an honest exchange of ideas with people who are fundamentally dishonest, who try to hide their intentions and their agenda behind a smokescreen of lies. And if you think that isn’t what they’re up to, you need to go back and reread their playbooks — Alinsky, Gramsci, and Cloward-Piven, among others — again."

-Mike Hendrix

“Because according to the fascist morons of the Left, the only way to end “hate” is….mindless, blind, vicious hatred of anyone who doesn’t think like they do, which is both their stock in trade and their raison d’etre.”

-Mike Hendrix

“In fact, leftism has failed utterly. It has failed everywhere and it has never done anything else but fail. From the murderous, leftist tyrannies of the Soviet Union and China to the soft but nonetheless oppressive and stagnant socialism of a moribund Europe, the relativist, wealth-crushing, overweening state has revealed itself to be an engine of misery and collapse.”

-Andrew Klaven

“After the Soviet collapse, Marxism is a relic, a pathetic anachronism reduced to its last redoubts: North Korea, Cuba, and the English departments of the more expensive American universities.”

-Charles Krauthammer

"...the worst advertisement for Socialism is its adherents."

-George Orwell

"They [socialists] always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them."

-Margaret Thatcher

"If you're not Liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not Conservative when you're 35, you have no brain."

This is just lovely. Take any one of those quotes, whether correctly attributed or not, and they all stand on their own - funny and accurate accounts of liberalism. An intellectual shortcut, seemingly made by most liberals, is to blame the messenger and try to obfuscate and denigrate the real message. And, hence, we're back to paragraph one in szore's litany. But what does this have to do with the story? Anyway, nice going Szore!

Maybe I missed the joke. How are those "accurate" accounts of liberalism? Leftism, Marxism, Communism maybe. But he's just slinging mud putting convenient labels on things to accommodate for his simple thought process. Little if any of those statements are true. Leftism has failed? Really, have you heard of this country called Sweden? I'm no fan of socialism in general, but what we have here in America hardly resembles a free market. Fallacy of false cause, rhetoric, red herring -those are the tools of the tool.

Carlidan

THERE is no truth to it. All you need to keep saying the same thing over and over and make it stick. Some people are simple minded and if you heard it from your pastor,it must be true.

Maybe I missed the joke. (naturally) How are those "accurate" accounts of liberalism? (There's so much confusion about the distinction because leftists label themselves as liberals, and liberals are too far left these days to be called liberals, and because they are - I'm not doing your homework for you - you look them up) Leftism, Marxism, Communism maybe. But he's just slinging mud putting convenient labels on things to accommodate for his simple thought process (see szore's paragraph 1). Little if any of those statements are true. Leftism has failed? (Yup – surprised you didn’t catch it.) Really, have you heard of this country called Sweden? (Yeah, I’ve lived there. People work and pay taxes to get stuff instead of whining for more dependency on welfare. I believe that they are still, rock bottom last place in welfare services per tax dollar in industrialized countries so you may want to get another example.) I'm no fan of socialism in general, but what we have here in America hardly resembles a free market (Cool example of Red Herring response). Fallacy of false cause, rhetoric, red herring -those are the tools of the tool. (I like that! What you said - tool of the tools!)

Did you just pick apart my post and try to find some technicality with every sentence? I'm flattered. Really.

Oh and "DEF: red herring - is a clue or piece of information which is intended to be misleading, or distracting from the actual issue." Just thought I'd help you out. How could my opinion followed by a fairly general observation be considered a red herring? That's a rhetorical question. It's not. You do realize that in almost every area of commerce there's massive regulation or monopolization of resources that those effected markets so perverted and far from "free" that free-market principles need not apply. Maybe free-market ideals. Have fun with those.

Jeez, that's quite easy making things up and attribute it to someone. And yes these are just as factual as to describe ALL Conservatives. Period. No fact check needed. My word is all you need.

avatar

kris79

Hahahaha! A humorously fictitious reply. Nevertheless, your lack of reason is showing.

avatar

Carlidan

Weird. So what Szore wrote about liberals..(jokes)... shows some truth to it. But when I did the same thing, it's fictitious. Funny part my quotes "have" some truth about conservatives. Maybe that's why you're offended. Hmmm... food for thought eh.

avatar

tekknyne

I'd say Carlidan's reasoning is quite solid. Pretty much nailed it. My hat's off.

avatar

kris79

Excellent! It's always best to keep that brain cell cool. More productivity may turn you into a conservative yet...

avatar

Carlidan

First off your Churchill never said that. Not like you. I researched that qoute. You know who quoted that phrase. Paul Addison of Edinburgh University made that comment not Churchill.
Another quote with no reference to reality. Margaret Thatcher. No record to her saying it.

It's also funny that Szore has been using most of those "quotes" on other sites. Rueters comes in mind.

I'm going to research more on orwells comment more thoroughly. I bet if I keep getting more info on your quotes, I bet you that you most of them are out of context or shit you just made up. :)

avatar

tekknyne

I wonder if he had those quotes neatly saved in his rhetoric folder or if he really took the time to plow through some websites to compile that bomb.

I just love how someone gives the slightest hint of liberalism and he jumps all over it. Guys like Szore really need things simplified in convenient categories so they can put labels on them. Curious if he's the same bunch that roasted Galileo for saying the Earth revolved around the sun.

avatar

tekknyne

So... what exactly are you getting at?

avatar

Carlidan

He's trying to say Liberals want to destroy America basically. No proof, just random quotes to conservative pundits. What did szore expect conservative people to say. We love liberals?

avatar

kris79

No, I think szore's indicating that liberals HAVE destroyed the world - wherever they are in control. Let's remember initially that spacini was making a JOKE!

avatar

Carlidan

..... (joking)>>>. Doubt he was joking since he HAS made the same comments on other sites. All I need was google HIS comments on google and guess what it's been SHOWN on other sites.

avatar

kris79

think you're confusing szore with spacini. Spacini was obviously tongue in cheek. Szore turned it into a political discussion, and now I wish I'd stayed in bed...

avatar

Carlidan

Back to bed.... :)

While I am all in favor of taking down an organization that has declared war on the United States and Israel, I also believe the authorities have crossed the line here by violating the fourth amendment. Was a warrant ever issued?

Plus, the constitution clearly says that a warrant must describe the items to be searched for, and personal bank accounts hardly seem to fit the bill here.

I think you miss read the article. There is no mention of any police force doing this.

Why are you guys always so hostile towards Anon in all of your articles? They are the people that are holding big corporations and the government responsible for their fucking actions! They are the ones who actually take fucking ACTION when someone does something that is wrong. Jesus, they are the fucking good guys. Stop painting them with such a negative brush!

avatar

LatiosXT

Because they're taking things into their own hands outside of the law. And the big corporations will respond by screwing everyone else who's just trying to abide by the law.

avatar

jgottberg

One word comes to mind when I read this post... Delusional.

There is a reason issues have to go through "Due Process" - You know, that bit in the LAW (those things we must all obey) that states innocent until proven guilty? How does Anon "know" the people they attack are guilty? How was it proven and what laws specifically were broken? Don't try to answer that, you can't. It's a rhetorical question.

Secondly, how did those witch trials and public lynchings work out when citizens tried to exact justice in their own timely manner?

Grow up and stop being naive.

Circular logic works because circular logic works. You have to abide by the law because the law says we have to. And the bible is true because it says so in the bible.

Right on. When I read posts by tools like Apathy Curve, the phrase connotative dissonance comes to mind. To illustrate- a story from one of my favorite forums:

Once upon a time....The Republican Party was a more conservative version of the Democratic point of view. A Republican was fiscally and socially right of the middle, but not in danger of falling off the right side of the planet. Since Reagan's trickle down theory met Jerry Falwell's brand of government, the GOP has become an irrational combination of christian right ranting and corporate bullying. Rational people who think of themselves as "Republicans" are stuck between a rock and hard place hence: cognitive dissonance. This theory states that when our thoughts and expectations are challenged by reality, we become mentally uncomfortable. In order to avoid or minimize this cognitive discomfort, we end up changing our original thoughts and opinions in order to justify what is happening. In other words, when there is dissonance between our expectations and reality, we end up changing our thoughts and beliefs rather than our behaviors. You are a Republican therefore you embrace the Republican party line without examining it because it cannot withstand close scrutiny and be thought reasonable.

Really? I guess my 5-6 community websites must be considered big business...and that would make me "The Man!"

I would have agreed with you before, but after they hacked me, I did some research and 99% of what these lowlife losers do is fuck with little guys and claim that they are doing us a favor. If I ever meet one in person, I will do him a favor!

I think your avatar makes you Da Man, iheartPCs. Can't comment on whether or not you're The Man, though. (Seriously, I dig it.)

How did you come to the information that it was in fact Anon messing with you? You must be more leet than our federal government. Please don't tell Max PC muh IP address!! NOOO!!

While they may be some per-pubescent script kiddies, anon has bigger stones than you can ever hope to have.

Ah so you understand the nature of coward-ism? Do enlighten us.
