Some of you know I work across the street from Zucotti Park, and I take a turn through the park nearly every work day. The sign to the left is not unique - I've seen several copies.
These sorts of signs were featured in so many attempts to discredit Tea Partiers. What do they mean about #OWS? Do intentions trump all?
Oh please. You don't mean to suggest that there is anything unsavory about OWS, or anything redeemable about Tea Party rallies, do you? You are only allowed to acknowledge the theoretical possibility of that, not actually think it.
Yes, of course I generalise unfairly. Let me state this in emphatic, but nonexaggerated form: there is a core of leftists for which this absolutely insane hypocrisy is absolutely accurate, they are noisy, and other leftists do not interrupt them in their hatred in any way, feeling that making milder statements themselves is an entirely adequate response to such.
