Well, this seems to demonstrate more than a little ideological flexibility. "Confirmed: Las Vegas Cop Killers Were Members of Far Left #Occupy Movement."

"Ask me why I wear the mask."

Expect no truth from the MSM, as they have been caught doctoring text, video, and photos. And they still have no shame. Treat them as they treat us. They've taken a once proud profession and turned it into a still-steaming pile of dog shit.

The far right and the far left tend to meet like a circle. The article mentioned "anarchists" as one of the groups involved at the march. The "liberty movement" has it's fair share of anarchists and minarchists in it's tent. Occupy was protesting control of this country by the 1% and banksters, I can sympathise with that viewpoint.
The Millers were anti authority and acted out with random violence against the government authorities, cops. The third guy shot by the wife was a reaction to him having a ccw and drawing his gun. They were not on a wild random kill everyone spree, they decided to kill cops that day. I don't condone their actions, but I am starting to understand them from what I have seen and read.

Well, I wouldn't be too hard on Occupy folks. At least they are resisting. At least they are disobeying. At least they are against the bankster class.

It does not bother me when I find someone to be a leftist. It's not socialism per se that is bad; it is the imposition of socialism on non-socialists that is bad. The imposition of anything, including freedom itself, on those who don't want it is always wrong. I say, let socialists be socialists; just don't include me in those schemes.

That is what Panarchy is all about. "Live and let live..."

From the article:

"Again, the liberty movement is massive but the Occupy Protests TEND TO BE ATTRIBUTED to the left. Bundy Ranch tends to be associated with the right."

Just b/c the MSM has couched these groups in the false left/right paradigm does not mean that characterization is valid. In fact, propagating that myth is anathema to the truth as well.

Just as the "Tea Party" movement was co-opted, the "Occupy" movement was as well. Both were demonized in the media by "left" and "right" wing media....each working for the other to ensure that we, the people remained divided.

Were there anarchists and trouble makers within Occupy's ranks? Certainly. Was the whole group made up of these same miscreants? No.

I get that our side wants to distance itself from what the Millers did....but to try and say they weren't of the 'liberty' movement is dishonest.

The fact is: they should be denounced for their initiation of violence (violation of the basic non-aggression principle) regardless of their political affiliation.

"The rich will strive to establish their dominion and enslave the rest. They always did... they always will. They will have the same effect here as elsewhere, if we do not, by the power of government, keep them in their proper spheres."

“Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility, prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they can have done or ever will do good.”
~ President John Adams

The founders, the more honest ones, would likely agree with Occupy, so why is it "far left"? Oh, right....

“We must keep the people busy with political antagonisms.... By dividing the electorate this way, we’ll be able to have them spend their energies at struggling amongst themselves on questions that, for us, have no importance whatsoever.”
