To Occupy Oakland: Stop Burning Flags, You Morons!

I denounce and reject the burning of an American flag by anyone involved with any Occupy group. I occupy to build a better America, not to torch the place. What a stupid, childish little tantrum. These young men at Occupy Oakland played right into the hands of Fox News and the rest of the establishment…

Greenville Journal: Corruption Opposed, Not Success

Mainstream media, especially the Fox News propaganda channel variety, are falling all over themselves to portray the Occupy movement at a mob of violent anarchists.
