“Occupy Wall Street”: Free Speech or Misdirected Temper Tantrum
The “occupiers” are all over the world now; it’s become a magnet for malcontents who have no idea what or why they are protesting. Meanwhile the ones who caused the economic problems that started this movement are getting little or no attention.
Occupy Wall Street protesters made their point and that point is: they are angry! Unfortunately, if you ask any 10 of them what they are angry about you are likely to get 10 different answers.
Every one of us gets angry from time to time but fortunately the vast majority of us use peaceful means to vent. The majority does not resort to blocking streets, carrying signs, shouting anti-semitic slogans, pitching tents in the park, living in their own filth like animals or, as the ‘occupiers’ did today in Oakland California, forcing businesses (businesses run by the ‘99%’) to close and shutting down the 5th largest seaport in the country.
It’s hard to understand why law enforcement doesn’t end this … unless they don’t know how.
It can be hoped that New York and Oakland and all of the other cities being terrorized by the ‘occupiers’ are at least making plans to end this big messy party. The protesters are causing sanitation problems, vandalizing businesses and buildings, costing the cities millions by forcing increases in police presence and sending a message to others like them (as well as to the world) that American cities are run by incompetent cowards.
This isn’t a free speech issue, this is a matter of open disrespect for civil discourse and for the rule of law and it’s gone on for far too long . . . without even targeting the right culprits.
It was the Left-Wing element of the Federal government that began taking over the banking industry and, in the end, causing banks to lose so much money they were forced to resort to the austere policies that the more lucid ‘occupiers’ are protesting against.
If you honestly ask yourself, who is the one man who instigated the Occupy protests and who is it that is responsible for putting a target on Wall Street and on the backs of the “1%” by declaring them the enemy; you’ll find that the answer lies in Washington D.C. and lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
The “Community Organizer” strikes again with a brilliant diversion!
