Three weeks ago I blogged that I would not endorse Occupy the RNC or DNC because both groups were refusing to state that they opposed violence.
Occupy the RNC has now put this on its website:
“We are not organizing actions, especially violent ones. That would just be stupid. We exist to provide information and facilitate logistics for people resisting the RNC.”
Not how I would have put it. Nor would I have added:
“Don’t fuck with us. We’ll sue you.”
But foreswearing violence and calling it stupid is enough for me. I wish Occupy DNC could bring itself to do as much. Better yet, just add “We oppose violence and will not use it.”
