Occupy Nashville's "We Love You."

“We Love You” yelled the Occupy Nashville protestors as the Vandy College Republican counter protestors approached the Legislative Plaza.

“From the first moment Occupy Nashville protesters heard about the Vanderbilt students’ counterprotest, they had planned a warm welcome. Promises of cookies were made early on and actually carried out,” reports The Tennessean.

Isn’t that sweet? I mean, it really is nice that people who disagree with each other can express their points of view and it not resort to angry shouting or violence.

However, I would still urge caution. When the Occupiers scream “We Love You,” they may be talking about Che Guevara’s Revolutionary Love. Last week we saw a picture of an Occupy protestor whose tent featured a posted sign that quoted Che Guevara saying, "The True Revolutionary is guided by feelings of Love."

That revolutionary love involves lining up suspected enemies of the revolution and putting a bullet through their head. It was Che who said, "If any person has a good word for the previous government that is good enough for me to have him shot."  And, "What we affirm is that we must proceed along the path of liberation even if this costs millions of atomic victims." 

If an Occupier says, "I love You," you may want to ask, "what do you mean by that?"
