    Why do righties support civil disobedience overseas but not here?

    Syria and China for instance - most all righties I've met (and most all liberals as well) support the civil disobedience that has occurred in those nations.

    Why are righties opposed to it here? Do they think foreigners should have more rights than us?

    Most are fools. They don't know what they believe. They scream and whine they hate the Obama agenda, but when it's explained, they agree with it. It's the difference between black and white.

    It is amazing isn't it. When those repressive governments crack down on the protesters with force they go bananas, "Look how they are treating their own people". When the US government cracks down on protesters with force they applaud it. What makes it even worse is that they seem happy when fellow Americans get arrested and beat by the police. To listen to FOX news you would think that the OWS people are all lazy unamerican leaches. Even the two tour Afgahnastan vet they shot in the head with a bean bag. Funny they don't talk about that.

    You have the right to PROTEST..

    when you turn to Civil disobedience then you Choose to take what comes with it. We have laws. too bad if you all don't like them. you are also infringing on the RIGHTS of others..

    I don't SUPPORT civil disobedience where ever it's being done

    Righties are FOR personal liberties. It's the lefties that squelch dissent. Remember that nazism, socialism & communalism are ALL left wing...

    Who's opposed to civil disobedience here? Just because we don't like what the OWS morons are doing doesn't mean we don't like ANY civil disobedience.

    Add another strawman to the legion.

    You have the right to ask your government questions, to demand accountability from your government. If your government is lying to you, you should demand the truth.

    Protesting is wonderful. Using the cover of protest to steal, destroy the property of other citizens, that is never defended.

    To Demand that Mubarak show what he did with all that cash he got from the US Government, to march in the streets and demand answers... that is cool.


    To make sure that other voices are not heard, to prevent people from working, that is not demanding civil liberties, that is fascism at it's worst.

    For it to count as civil disobedience, people have to be able to take the consequences.

    For example, they have to be willing to go pay the fines or go to jail if they're doing something illegal.

    A lot of the OWS people are not willing to accept the consequences. They're complaining when the time to pay up comes.

    That's not civil disobedience. That's committing crime and whining about the consequences.
