Sheesh, just shows that some activists have their reactionary streaks. I wonder if it ever occured to Hayes that those young anarchists have very valid reasons for their behaviors? Many of them are poor and working class. Some of them are runaways and many work marginal jobs.

This Hayes guy may be doing some good things, but ultimately his agenda is rather reformist. Asking the government to fix the homeless problem isn't going to fix the problem, even in the short term.

I'm also offended by the sanctimonious tone that he adopts. His whining about other activists isn't going to win him many battles.
