Occupy Philly says “you cannot evict an idea.”
That’s true, but you can evict people who refuse to accept the First Amendment allows “time, place and manner” restrictions. So overnight, Occupiers were given a clear message: You ain’t gotta go home but you gotta get the hell out of here.
What remained of their squalid encampment was cleared out.
As the leaders of the, um, leaderless movement consider Occupy 2.0, they should keep in mind that optics and tactics matter. MIC CHECK: Optics and tactics matter.
