Summer 2012: Yes, They're Planning To Riot
Adbusters, the Canadian magazine credited with starting Occupy, is exhorting lefties to break things at the May Chicago G8 summit.
While the Occupiers have dwindled, don't believe that a lost media narrative eliminated either the number of potentially violent lefties or their desire to riot this moment, or that bad press and law enforcement alone precipitated Occupy's current failure.
Frankly, I think they'd be looting today if the East Coast was above 50 Fahrenheit.
Springtime violence is the easiest prediction of Campaign 2012. Judging from the generally iron-deficient response to Occupy, I'm not convinced any city government is prepared -- or preparing -- to crush it before good folks get hurt.
