The “Occupy Wall Street” protests have risen up out of the ashes of stupidity and banality. This is apparently the liberal attempt to make a movement with as much impact as the Tea Party, but it will assuredly lose momentum quickly (remember the “coffee party” a few years back?). This is because they have absolutely no idea what they’re even trying to accomplish. With broad, sweeping statements like “we oppose corporate greed”, they cannot hope to reach any goals.
The main problem with this movement is its inherent negativity and failure to promote anything other than “solidarity” (whatever the hell that means) and “democracy”. Their web site speaks of joining forces with the people of Greece, calling them heroes for shutting down their own government.
Nevermind the fact that Greece was demolished by its own reckless spending on welfare and other goodies for the populace. If it’s true they shut down their own government, it’s because they’re nothing but a bunch of spoiled, whiny brats who threw a tantrum when told they could no longer have their freebies.
Do I disagree with the “end corporate greed” mantra? Of course not. But I believe we also need to end government greed. Somehow it’s acceptable to these people that the government takes my money and “redistributes wealth” because I don’t have the “right” to keep what I’ve earned. That’s the kind of thinking these people embrace, and it disgusts me. End corporate greed, but start with the greedy politicians in bed with them. And yes, that means both Democrats and Republicans. Let’s not forget Obama bailed out Wall Street and the auto industry.
The Tea Party has offered viable solutions and candidates touting those solutions. “Occupy Wall Street” has offered nothing but children who are crying for their freebies. If this is the American dream, then the dream has been crushed by selfish, overindulgent fools whose only goal is to spend others’ money. This is not the America I believe in.
How many Tea Party demonstrators have been arrested in the past three years? Certainly not as many “Occupiers” have been in the past three weeks. Tells you a little something about the liberal mindset and its inability to hold itself to the same standards. Violence and defiance are no-nos, unless of course it’s for a cause they support.
The “Occupy Wall Street” movement will continue to cause trouble, defy the police, and when arrested, they will cry foul. They will plead for the First Amendment, when it is they who have trampled upon it by neglecting the right to peacefully assemble. When that fails to win over detractors, they will cry racism or gender discrimination or whatever societal plague they fancy at the time.
This is liberal desperation, pure and simple. Obama is a failure and these people simply cannot accept it. Instead of facing truth and plain, simple facts, they resort to skirting the issue and pointing the blame elsewhere. Typical liberal tactic, and it will fail as it has in the past, over and over again.
