OWS Losing Liberal San Francisco?

So goes Frisco, so goes the nation?

As Occupy gets under way after several months of hiatus, the public is finding even less to like about the group. A poll commissioned by CBS San Francisco found support for the group dwindling, and more than 2/3 of those polled felt the police response was either appropriate or not harsh enough.

May Day violence in Oakland resulted in 25 arrests after businesses were vandalized and threatened by anarchist protesters associated with the Occupy movement. One individual was arrested for felony assault on a police officer, and two more were arrested for felony arson.

It would seem that even in most liberal cities in California, the OWS movement would seem to be wearing out its welcome.

    Wow! If the folks in Cali are starting to get it, there may be hope yet!

    I guess the infantile violence that comes with the ignorance that is anarchy is okay if it is somewhere else.

    I would like to see the #occupy movement adopt a uniform: diapers and a pacifier.
    What have these willing tools — these useless idiots — accomplished with all of their histrionics and mayhem? At least a democrat would have gotten rich from all of it.

      Yikes! Can you imagine the uncovered tats and piercings? Not to mention the smell of the well-used diapers.? But certainly an infantile uniform is in order.

    OWS only works when it also includes NIMBY (not in my backyard).? So would that be, OWSNIMBY?
