OAKLAND, Calif. - A protest that shut down the Port of Oakland to show the broadening reach of the Occupy Wall Street movement ended in violence when police in riot gear arrested dozens of protesters overnight who broke into a vacant building, shattered downtown windows, sprayed graffiti and set blazes along the way.

Protesters also threw concrete chunks, metal pipes, lit roman candles and molotov cocktails, police said....

One of the pics I seen was of some lout wearing one of those solidarity with the palestinian rags. And old Karl Denninger thinks OWS is onto something.

If Kalifornia weren't a socialist state they could sue all the rich “Occupy” backers for damages--but then if the Fruits and Nuts state weren't socialist none of this would have happened in the first place.

Let the benighted Marxist tools try to shut down our port at Charleston—our Darling Nikki would have the National Guard clubbing and gassing their shiftless fannies all the way back to DC NYT LA Frisco or whatever cesspool of commie treason they oozed out of !

Do any other FReepers suspect that this is all dress rehearsal for the "civil unrest" demonstrations during the Republican convention and a couple of days prior to the 2012 election?

Everything is way too orchestrated to be believable as "spontaneous", especially with Obama publically egging it on.

The Chicago mob is running rough shod over the Constitution and our country.

“Just like the Tea Party.”

Exactly. MSM comparisons of them to the Tea Party are specious. They closely resemble Seattle anarchists:

Just Democrats being democraps. If I were king, I would have anybody with a molotov coctail shot on sight. That is a deadly weapon. Need to arrest these pukes, put them on trail immediatly and toss them in hard core prison with orange jump suits on TV.

That would remove the bulk of them overnight. No longer would it be a teenager party time.

Post of Oakland "effectively shut down."
You changed a seaport into a newpaper!
Reminds me of an old Sesame Street character - Spell Binder.
He'd totally change the meaning of a word by stealing one letter and replacing it with another.

That’s an excellent point. The Police routinely shoot people brandishing knives at them. A Molotov cocktail is much more dangerous.

For most of us, hard to tell the difference between this and a typical day in Oakland.

Now when one of these breaks out at The Villages....will be time to Lock and Load

I agree. This is practice. The OWS stage is just so the agitators can meet the rabble, collect phone numbers and email addresses, and get people enthused and worked up.

Come winter, the OWS crowds will go home, but organization and agitation will continue "under the radar". Then, come spring, expect them to all come out, try to trash the Republican convention in Tampa in August, and then try to disrupt the 2012 elections.

I would say it was a good bit more than “chaos”.

I think the title should have been— Occupy mob goes from chaos to violence and destruction.

This headline is false. No one went to Chao’s. It was open all day, and quite peaceful. Chinatown wants nothing to do with the Occupy mob. They’re bad for business.

The Mayor of Oakland called this a good day.

The pro-stablishment, pro-government, anti-America mobs are just following orders.

And sadly the Republican party is more interested in bad mouthing the TEA party than the communists/socialist/anarchist who are literally running riot in the streets.

It’s not quite that time yet but it is getting closer . When some Occupy whatever protestor decides to toss a molotov thru the front window of a store or bank & gets shot by a customer /guard the resulting violence will be the spark that starts the bloodshed on a massive scale.
