SOP for Oaklands' thugs to take advantage of any situation and exploit it to the max. Emotionally charged "real" protestors get sucked in. And considering Oaklands' proximity to "The Open Ward™" this is hardly surprising.

Far more likely is Black Bloc, who crashes every large Bay Area protest they can.

Don't let tv news stereotypes about "Oakland" cloud your ability to interpret this story.

Killgore posted pics yesterday--the vandals were in Black Bloc costume. On the other hand, the kids should step back until they learn how to control the co-option.

Lets make a comparison for the sake of perspective.

[Link: news.yahoo.com...]

NICE, France (AP) — Thousands of protesters — some naked except for pointed Robin Hood caps — converged Tuesday on the French Riviera, urging the Group of 20 leading economies to focus on spreading global largesse on people instead of saving banks and pleasing financial markets.

Police helicopters scanned the sunny coast as a festive crowd marched through Nice accompanied by drumbeats. "Peasants Before Finance," ''Life, not the Market" read banners carried by the demonstrators.

Scores of French and international activist groups with a range of missions — from a tax on financial transactions to better environmental protection and fairer labor laws — are organizing protests around the summit of G-20 leaders in Cannes on Thursday and Friday.

"We have had a complicated year on the international level what with the death of Osama bin Laden, interventions notably in Libya with an intense and charged sitiuation there. So the terrorist threat level is heightened to a reinforced code red," French Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said.

"Even if the public and the demonstration organizers want the protest to be a peaceful one and to take place in the best possible way, there is nonetheless the risk that on the margins of this demonstration there could be small groups that could infiltrate the demonstration with no other desire than to cause trouble and we're particularly wary of that."

Rush Limbaugh has added his considerable weight to the issue, alleging that this is all orchestrated by none other than President Obama:
RUSH: The Occupy Wall Street crowd is now hoping to make Oakland,

California, the center of their movement, and I want to take you back. Here's me on this program back on October 6th.

RUSH ARCHIVE: [T]here's no doubt in my mind that the White House is behind this. I wish I could tell you who, but a very prominent person asked me to never mention his name in this regard, but for months he has been telling me, "You watch, Rush, do not doubt me," he said to me, "Obama is setting up riots. He is fanning the flames for riots and eventual violence. That's all he's got." And now you look, all of this talk about millionaires and billionaires and people not paying their fair share and this relentless assault on achievement in this country has resulted in what? The appearance of a spontaneous combustion of angry white college students who are fed up with all the injustices that this country is famous for. That's his base. Occupy Wall Street is his base. Those are his foot soldiers.

It would be easy to dismiss this clueless buffoon if millions of people did not accept his every word as revealed wisdom.
