Dissension Within Occupy - Chris Hedges Irked with Black Bloc

In February, Chris Hedges wrote an article that continues to cause enormous consternation, in which he labelled Black Bloc the cancer of the Occupy movement.  Many Occupiers who are themselves pacifist are loathe to condemn others who consider themselves anarchists.  Dorli Rainey has no such compunction and towards the end of this clip, from a Control the Corporation event in Washington, calls them hoodlums.  This video is a fascinating view inside the debate about where, if anywhere, the American Spring is headed.  It's worth watching just to hear from Hedges, who knows from personal experience in multiple theaters as much about how revolutions unfold as anyone alive today.
