Attacking peaceful protesters = sure win

All the talk about Occupy Wall Street and its spin-offs around the world was that it would all start to wind up pretty soon, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, as the weather gets much colder. The inexorable forces of nature would whittle it away, and rather ignominiously too. In other words, all the authorities had to do was sit still and then call the protesters lightweights with no real commitment: blah blah central heating, blah blah living in your parents' basement, blah blah iPhones, blah blah get a haircut etc.

So how stupid do the authorities have to be to pick today, the 15th November, to fight the protesters? Dumb. This puts OWS right back in the spotlight, with a platform for - nay a physical demonstration of - their major points about the complicity of governmental structures with the monied elite.

Incidentally, talking about dumb, how stupid is Frank Miller to attack the OWS protesters as 'rapists'? The entirely well-balanced and not at all hysterical writer added:
"In the name of decency, go home to your parents, you losers. Go back to your mommas' basements and play with your Lords Of Warcraft. Or better yet, enlist for the real thing. Maybe our military could whip some of you into shape. They might not let you babies keep your iPhones, though."

Oh dear. Frank you left out the blah blahs.
