(VIDEO) Peter Schiff takes on 'The 99%' at Occupy Wall Street, Part 2
MRCTV (Media Research Center TV) ^ | 10/27/2011 | Joe S.

On October 21, 2011, The Media Research Center sent MRCTV to Zuccotti Park in New York City to see exactly what was going on at 'Occupy Wall Street'.

While there, we captured Peter Schiff, CEO and Chief Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc., taking questions from the protesters who call themselves 'The 99 percent'.

Schiff, as you can guess, took questions representing 'The 1%'- or in other words, the exact people the Occupiers are demanding be taxed more in order to spread wealth around.

Essentially, the protesters aren't too fond of people like Schiff who have worked hard their entire life to be in the positions they currently hold.

Watch as Schiff braves the mob and fields questions in what is sure to be video gold. To see Part I of Schiff taking on the protesters, click here.

I couldn't even watch it all. When you hear what these people believe, and what we are up against, you get sick. Saving America seems almost impossible when you see that people like this have been given credibility and their beliefs are so distorted. They have been fed lies and fears by the media and liberals and they have done nothing to find the truth.

The OWS crowds shouting and believing things that they know little about remind me of the crowds shouting "crucify Him.' obama and this administration have played very well to the fools. Their strategy of frightening the people against capitalism and wealth has certainly worked. Now the government is set to take care of everyone. That is the real fright.

Kind of interesting. Sort of like when I tried explaining basic landscaping concepts to the rocks in my front yard.

Schiff did a good job there. It’s a shame he didn’t do better running for the Senate in Connecticut. I would have been nice to have at least one Senator who understands economics.
