15 Things I Learned About the Tea Party From Occupy Wall Street
WWW.jimbyrd.com ^ | 11/06/2011 | Jim Byrd

Posted on 11/07/2011 10:52:44 AM PST by jim byrd

It has been a challenge to compare the Occupy Wall Street entrenchment to the Tea Party movement due to sporadic, biased, and negative coverage of Occupy Wall Street by the mainstream/liberal media. The mainstream/liberal media have demonstrated with their history of affectionate and tender coverage of Tea Party rallies that they are sycophantic water carriers for the Tea Party, the GOP, and conservatives.

Why did you post an excerpt, of a blog, especially when the first paragraph is an outright lie?

And you are the owner and can post in entirety at will?

Here's one thing you should learn about Free Republic:
I have no complaint if a good conservative blogger posts his own material to FR, not as an excerpt to drive hits and discussion back to his blog, but rather to impart useful information to OUR readers and to promote and join in on the discussion and conservative activism HERE on FR.

If a blogger can’t or refuses do that, and if he constantly complains or fights with our participants over it, then I’d just as soon he doesn’t post here. It’s not my job to make his content or his presentation or cooperation acceptable to our readers. That’s his job. And if he cannot do it or refuses to do it and continues posting brief excerpts only and obviously attempting to draw away our participants while loudly complaining about it, then I have no sympathy for his complaints and the more apt I am to ban his account and blog.

Normally I would call you out for pimping your blog here on FreeRepublic.

This time I will make an exception.

Giving the benefit of the doubt, I went to your site and the article posted there is one of the most tasteless pieces of drivel I have ever had the misfortune to read. If it's supposed to be satire, parody or sarcasm, it only succeeds in being boorish. To post it here would only sully this great forum.

"It has been a challenge to compare the Occupy Wall Street entrenchment to the Tea Party movement due to sporadic, biased, and negative coverage of Occupy Wall Street by the mainstream/liberal media."

What a steaming pantload.
The media HATES the Tea Party and has tried to paint them as Anti-Semitic Neo-Nazi sarcificers of babies, elderly, and women.
The media, on the other hand, has tried to spin the Occupy Wallstreet crew as bread and butter wholesome harmless neo-hippies.

If it's supposed to be satire, parody or sarcasm, it only succeeds in being boorish.

I've read a large part of it, and I'm confident that it is meant as satire. (Read the fist three paragraphs and see if you don't agree.) If it comes across as boorish, it's because the Occupy actions mentioned are depraved. I think Jim should consider some further editing of this piece.
