These Occupiers!

Oh, what to make of this liberal, leftist groundswell to occupy Wall Street! All this solidarity! I heard the word, solidarity mostly used with socialist and communist spoutings. It is spreading to cities across the country. Some are just angry at the wealthy getting wealthier during these downed economic times. Some are saying this is the liberal leftist answer to the right-wing TEA Party. Some are not only protesting against those on the right, but the Obama administration, due to being too timid with those deemed the rich fat cats. Listen to actress and Occupy Wall Street protester, Susan Sarandon. And then, there are some who really do not know why they are there. They joined in, because they like seeing young people rising up and coming together, but cannot tell you exactly why there is a rising  up and a coming together.

I hear on the local Philly urban talk radio station which is the only talk station that promotes liberal leftist perspectives in the city and the surrounding areas, excitement from some of the talks show hosts. They really think the Occupy Wall Street crowd and occupiers in other cities are showing the right-wing and wealthy crowd that they are coming out swinging to do class warfare. I wonder, out of all the protesters I see on TV, who is registered to vote?

Unlike the TEA Party gatherings, there is a destructive mob mentality with the Occupy whatever/wherever folks. I saw enough on TV and on Internet video using foul language to express their political beliefs. Those who know why they are protesting are pretty much anti-capitalism. I heard a few say they are socialists/communists. I wonder how that makes some of the old guard Democrats feel about the socialist/communist connection I wonder how do those on the Democratic side feel about some of the leftist occupiers protesting the Obama administration! I leave you with this video and this video with Andrew Breitbart. You will see some cannot tell you why they are protesting, while others use a weak generality and then others let you know they are anti-capitalism and pro socialism/communism.
