Reports suggest that there were about 10,000 protestors in Toronto today. More than 9,500 peaceful protesters actually had some message to send.
A couple hundred "anarchists" engaged in acts of violence ranging from smashing storefronts and throwing feces through broken windows to spraying urine at reporters and torching police cars.
Let us be clear. The so-called Black Block were there for one reason and one reason only. They were there to advance the cause of global capital. They were there to provoke pointless violence. They were there to discredit legitimate dissent. They were there to help Stephen Harper and Dalton McGuinty justify draconian legislation and out of proportion security spending.
They succeeded in their mission.
Sadly, the mainstream media have fallen for it.
Even sadder, some people on the left fail to recognize these quisling thugs for what they really are.
