“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” – President Barack Obama
USA Today printed a letter to the editor from Rich Latta, in Austin Texas, supposedly a member of the #OWS Austin commune. In the letter, he warns:
USA TODAY’s editorial is right to say that Occupy might lack clear goals on how to move forward, but the movement has accomplished its main original goal: to protest these injustices, not by simply holding a rally and going home, but by keeping the rally going to underscore the seriousness of this problem. Your piece accuses the protesters of sitting around and doing nothing. So maybe they should take up their Second Amendment-sanctioned guns and storm Wall Street and our nation’s capitals. If our country doesn’t change, it could very well come to that one day.
Recently I educated a co-worker on Occupy Wall Street. I concluded that I didn’t think they would go quietly into the good night. I thought there would be more violence, possibly with someone like a police officer being killed by one of the groups during one of their many riots.
He looked at me like I was crazy.
When you read the above, and look at what they have done so far, is it really that crazy?
