Busted? British Paper Reveals Some Wall St. Protesters Are Quite Privileged
The Blaze ^ | 10-11-11 | Jonathon M. Seidl

Well, now the British paper The Daily Mail is helping answer that question. The answer? Some of them seem to be quite privileged.

“A closer look at some of the impassioned protesters is starting to suggest that while many of them have genuine grievances,” the Daily Mail writes, “all may not be completely as advertised. “

Here’s what it means:

Among the hardcore of well-intentioned protesters sleeping rough in Zuccotti Park are also the children of the wealthiest ‘one per cent’ – taking a break from classes at private schools to show their solidarity… and join the fun.

As millionaire celebrities pledged allegiance to the protesters despite very healthy bank balances, MailOnline spoke to youngsters who have joined the movement, many of whom study at colleges which cost their parents up to $200,000.

Sleeping beside the hardcore activists are increasing numbers of wealthy students turning up to make the most of the party atmosphere, drugs and free food.

While they dress down to blend in, the youngsters’ privileged backgrounds are revealed by glimpses of expensive gadgetry or the absent minded mention of their private schools during heated political debates.

One student, who did not want to be named, admitted she had been sleeping at the protest site with her boyfriend despite living in nearby TriBeCa, a neighbourhood which is home to many of New York’s A list celebrities.

The only comparison the Occupy rally has to the Tea Party is the word "Party". A bunch of rich punks hanging out like hipsters. That is why there is no coherent message. None of these children there care about anything but being seen, smoking dope and having sex.

Political revolutionaries are almost never poor. The Jacobins and Communists always tried to pretend they were part of them and their champions, but the peasants and poor are always very conservative and opposed to radicalism.

Why else would the French revolutionaries have to massacre the peasants in the Vendee, and the Bolsheviks have their campaigns against kulaks?

I wonder who is forking up the money for these little snots to go to college? Don’t these idiots know that when Obama talks rich, he’s talking about their parents? Their brain cells have taken a nose dive.

I bet all four of them are “majoring” in something like “Political Science”, and none of them have done anything remotely resembling an honest day’s (or eve hour’s) work in their pampered princess lives.

Girl #1 on the left is kind of cute.

But she can pay off her own student loan.

In this day and age, she could be an agent of a hostile nation or commie agitprop infiltrator.

LOL. She also has a resemblance to another "Looker" from 40 years ago.

Anyone of those four, would have been easy picking during my college days. All I need was a tie-dyed tshirt, old jeans and sandals to make it in like Flynn.

” Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at. “

-—Bill Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s. Among other feats, Mr. Ayers and his cohorts bombed the Pentagon, and he has never expressed regret for his actions.

Barack Obama’s political career was launched at a 1995 gathering at Ayers’s home.

Likewise. The only problem is that I would have only wanted to take a run at the foreign chick. Maybe the red head depending on how high I was. The other two are just heinous.

“kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at.“

Which raises the question: did Bill kill his?
