Democrats Seek to Own 'Occupy Wall Street' Movement
ABC ^

Posted on 10/09/2011 10:35:27 PM PDT by Borough Park

Occupation can lead to ownership, whether or not you want it.

The spread of the "Occupy Wall Street" movement was met with initial hesitation in both the Democratic and Republican parties. That might be an appropriate response to any protests that aim themselves squarely at the establishment, particularly those with goals that are diverse and diffuse as the current protesters' are.

But a consensus is emerging among Democrats that the "Occupy" movement is worth tapping into, even helping along and joining with in some instances.

"I support the message to the establishment," House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said on ABC's "This Week." "Change has to happen. We cannot continue in a way that does not -- that is not relevant to their lives. People are angry."

Considering that the “Occupy” movement is right out of the Marxist playbook - and many of the participants are spewing radical Marxist doctrine - I believe they are a perfect fit for the Democrat party...

I say, “Go for it!” And stop trying to convince Americans that TEA Party people agree with and support these filthy maggots.

"People are angry." - Nasty Pelosi

They are only angry because they want somebody else to pay off their student loans.

The real question is whether there’s anybody stupid enough to believe there was no behind the scenes democrat involvement in the Occupy movement. Apparently Nancy thinks so.

Sounds like a catchy tune, or a great way to catch Hepatitis.

I really want to believe that there is a large segment of the Democrat Party that have a dose of common sense in their tiny Reptilian brains, but I just can't see it.

Literally and not just figuratively based on the odiousness of their views. I can’t believe it has come to that.

Yeah, I think Pelosi let a whole nanosecond pass before asking her god (Marx, Muhammad, whatever...) to bless them.

Occupy Wall Street is a ball and chain for Democrats. Let them have them. They don’t even have the first bloom naivete of the hippies, these guys aren’t going to impress boomers who were radicals, I was around a bunch of this in the San Francisco area.

Judging by their gear and their apparent lack of preparation; I wonder how long they will last when the cold and wet weather sets in. Of course they will probably just occupy some building owned by a capitalist sympathizer (read useful idiot).
Here’s hoping for an early severe blizzard in NYC.
Let them all die alone in the dark and the cold.

Fools. The Democrats are being played — that is the rank-and -file are — as chumps. The “Occupy” Movement is just so much cannon fodder to stir up domestic trouble, to create national “emergency,” so as to allow the REAL powers-that-be (Obama, Van Jones, Union Bosses, Leftist Media Elite, George Soros, etc...) use them as an excuse to seize power, perhaps even “postpone elections,” and suspend the Constitution. And those Democrats in Congress either don’t SEE that this would make them irrelavent, or they don’t care that it would. Fools — or bought and paid for. Either way, America loses.

"Democrats Seek to Own 'Occupy Wall Street' Movement"

"CONTAMINATE Wall Street Movement" would be more appropriate. Smelly left-wing b*st*rds.

Nancy said yesterday in response that the Tea Party spit on members of Congress.
To my knowledge there was NEVER any proof of that.
There is no comparison of this group of misfits to the Tea Party.
The tea party was and is peaceful and never made the mess this bunch is making.
Yes they are owned 100% by the RAT Party. . .

Guess you could call the occupiers a Rebellion of the Consensus, but that is not really saying much considering the kind of minds that are agreeing to that consensus. Now the Romans had a most accurate and descriptive term to describe these groups. Barbarians was perhaps a little bit too harsh, but judging by some of the pictures coming out of camp de occupied, it is quite fitting. Now we could modernize the description and just say they are Borgs Gone Wild. They will only get real dangerous if some Queen Borg unites them all. Because together they are powerful. Together their are Legion. Blah. Blah. Blah.
