“Now is the time to spread hate, hatred for the rich.”

#OWS Oakland: “Passionate, organized hatred is the element missing in all that we do to try to change the world” - Darleen Click/Protein Wisdom

Well, let’s, at least, give props to Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz, a retired professor of Cal State East Bay, for honesty. Most #Occupods are blathering about “fairness” and “social justice” when really all they want is to steal from their more successful neighbors.

Riot police fired tear gas and arrested more than 400 people in Oakland, California, as hordes of anti-Wall Street protesters tried to take over downtown buildings including City Hall, police said Sunday.

The most violent protest of the year by an Occupy Wall Street offshoot led to what Oakland police described as "an unprecedented number of arrests" Saturday night into early Sunday.

Three officers and a protester were injured in the clashes, after a peaceful march of some 1,000 demonstrators degenerated into confrontation with police in which rioters "pelted officers with bottles, metal pipe, rocks, spray cans, improvised explosive devices and burning flares," police said in a statement.
