Considering those who support corporations are also the most outspoken supporters of the military, this is awesome

The people that support large corporations and the military probably just had their head explode.

Edit: I'm talking specifically about the "Support the troops to defend our corporate American freedom" type of people

Is this supposed to be a joke about the incomprehensible social movement/protest thread posted earlier today?

This is great. Military men and women occupy a unique niche in the class system, and it's great to see them siding with the proles.

According to the article: one former former army guy for sure and "maybe 15 of his friends."

It's a giant social movement!!!

I guess "article" should be in quotations too, I mean in5d doesn't seem like a highly reputable publication.

Now what happens to them if the President says "stop that."?



They are protesting as an individual choice.No different to any other occupation protesting The fact that they happen to be marines is just an excuse for reddit to wet itself.

You don't have some "individual choices" as a military member.

What do you expect from someone who probably regularly posts on /b/. Their accumulative IQ isn't that high.


However, slight trolling aside. I hope that these marines at least turn the tides about the protest. Doubtful but just hopeful.

Plus I've always wondered what happens if the governments or Corporations soldiers just say " fuck you" and refused to follow orders and aid the protesters. I doubt the government can do much then.

Yeah, apparently the NYPD arrested like 700 of the protesters earlier today. So much for the Marines.

Rather useless if the government is over thrown. this isn't on this level, but just wondering. I would imagine if the military refuses to follow the orders than its over for the government. They aren't under any moral code to follow blindly what they're told.

I can't trust the military, they're all mindless slaves blindly supporting their country. The government probably has some trick up their sleeves on this.

If there are does who would refuse to follow, there would be those who would naturally follow.

Yeah I figured as much, but in a surreal time stream, if say, congress passed a law that made everyone who didn't have at least 1,000,000 in a bank sold into slave labor. I'm sure their would be a unanimous turn in the military. hypothetical I know.

Guys, it's a group of retired veterans, acting as human shields, using their status to deter mace attacks.

The military is NOT engaging the nypd.

If this article was named "Some civilian Marines will be aiding the protesters" than I'd have been impressed.

Sketchy source, bro. However, i've seen it on Twitter and on Occupy Wall Streets website. And like other people have noted, they are retired Marines.

Honestly, this has gotten out of hand

Because JP Morgan gave a generous multi-million donation to the NYPD.

I'm pretty sure there's a fair share of enlisted personnel and lower ranked Officers who don't support Wall Street's crap.

The military isn't "siding" with them, they're just defending the protesters' constitutional rights. Which is their job, really.

You're correct. Despite the fact that the individual police officer rarely has any common interests with the ruling class whose property s/he's commissioned to protect, the job itself is inherently working against the vast majority of both documented and transient citizens. What we have in these "occupations" is police officers who are "doing their job," yet they sympathize with, if not boldly support, the protests.

Yeah I meant lower ranked Military Officers but I can see why lower ranked Cops would hate having to do Wall street's dirty work.
#36
Oh, right. Yeah, I'd assume it's the same story for lower ranking military personnel.
#37
"I'm no longer in active duty or in any way contractually indebted to the military. Nor are any of my friends that are joining me.

So a bunch of retired marines who make it clear that they do not see themselves in debt to themilitary are joining the protest?

Oh man, it's going to be a ****ing revolution

This is ridiculous. Firstly, they're not marching for anything worthwhile because the economic crisis was caused by stupidity and world events, not malicious intent, and they're doing all they can to fix it. Secondly, these people are being arrested for something - they're blocking traffic (jaywalking is illegal.) Thirdly, if a war veteran commits a crime they can expect to be arrested just as any ordinary citizen would be.
