The Occupy Wall Street Demonstrations

The Occupy Wall Street movement is just another example of the protestors who caused all the damage in Wisconsin complete with organized thugs to swell the crowds. It is interesting that the President not only fails to distance himself from them, but he gives them legitimacy and calls them “a movement against how our financial system works”. His words are echoed by Gen. Masoud Jazayeri of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard saying this movement would topple the capitalist system and the structure of our government calling it the American Spring likening it to that which spread throughout the Middle East. The administration however likened them to the Tea Party protests although there were no arrests in any of those and no destruction of property. The Tea Party members were labeled racists, terrorists and a threat to homeland security when the difference in the pictures of Tea Party activists and the groups in Wisconsin and now spreading to New York and beyond are strikingly different and that is clear to all Americans. These people do not speak for the majority of Americans. The majority of Americans are hard working, good people who just want their government to help promote the environment for job creation by the private sector where wealth is created and to escape the burden of a government we can’t afford. The President is glad for the scapegoat to blame for his inability or concern to right the economy. If we really were to seek who to blame the President and his policies and the role of the Federal Reserve under the leadership of Ben Bernanke should be examined. The puposeful devaluation of our currency through their actions should be investigated and see where the money went.
