Zotted Poster and Tea Party founder (ha ha) (Karl Denninger) backs Occupy Wall Street
Russia Today (Go Vlad Go!) ^ | 10/14/2011

Posted on 10/14/2011 3:17:45 PM PDT by Beckett08

Karl Denninger was one of the founders of the Tea Party back just a few years ago when some concerned conservatives wanted to fire back at the government for what they said was unjust practices.

Today, similar sentiments are being echoed by the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Is it right to make comparisons between the two groups? Denninger says that, yes, to some degree the comparisons are indeed accurate. The Occupy movement, however, can learn from some of the mistakes that he says the Tea Party succumbed to.

“The problem with protests and the political process is that it is very easy, no matter how big the protests is, for the politicians to simply wait for the people to go home,” says Denninger. “Then they can ignore you.”

Well, on a more ideal plane the purpose of the Tea Parties is consciousness raising on the right, and surely the Occupy ruffians intend the same thing on the left. It is these after effects that the protestors hope politicians will respond to — rather than to the protests themselves.

Denniger has nothing at all to do with the Tea Party. If he backs that commie slime, fine, that is up to him.

He ain’t, and never has been Tea Party.

The Wall street sit in is for everything and stands for nothing. Why would a Tea Party person even get near this smelly bunch? What are these supposed principals that the Tea Party has in common with the anarchist radicals?

Just as I thought NOTHING!!!

One of the nice things about the TEA Party is that anyone can speak out about the TEA Party but no one speaks for the TEA Party.

Well, well, well. Karl Denninger. Someone I never heard about, until some of his insane rantings got posted here on FR for some strange reason.

Yeah, he can go spout his lunacy on Wall Street with the fleabaggers.

No. There are no Tea Party founders. The TP is a group of like minded, coonservatve individuals. There are no official leaders or founders.

Jim Robinson could be considered a TP founder along the author’s reasoning. So could anyone like me for example because I helped organize several early FReeps locally inncluding one where around ten of us protested the taking of Elian Gonzalas.

The TP is We The People.

Remember when the media was bewildered by the Tea Party's lack of a leader? They were forever searching for the leader of the movement and, when unable to find one, dismissed the movement out of hand.

Where was this Denninger guy then?

From Wikipedia:

“Karl Denninger is the former CEO of MCSNet in Chicago, one of the area’s first Internet providers.

He is most notably, however, a founding contributer to conservative blog market-ticker.org and is one of the early members of the Tea Party movement (”I cannot take credit for the idea floated on the forum, but I do like it.”).[1]. Rick Santelli’s CNBC mention of a tea party[citation needed] followed Mr. Denninger’s Blog entry on January 20th.

On January 20, 2009 Denninger published an article regarding the suggestion to mail tea bags to the white house and to congress. The title of his post was “Tea Party February 1st?,” and it was written in direct response to President Obama’s inauguration occurring on the same day, even though he openly voted for Obama. The article took issue with the bailouts, the US national debt and “the fraud and abuse in our banking and financial system” which included the predatory lending practices currently at the center of the home mortgage foreclosure crisis.[2]

Karl Denninger, who helped form FedUpUSA in the wake of the March 2008 Federal Reserve bail out of Bear Sterns, has been a guest on MSNBC, Glenn Beck and CNBC Reports.[3][4] By February 1, the idea had spread among various conservative and libertarian-oriented blogs, forums, websites and through a viral email campaign.[5]

On Oct 20, 2010, he blogged that Republicans had hijacked the Tea Party movement, and perverted its original goals to the standard Republican concerns of “guns, gays and God.”[6].

Denninger stated on RT that he supports the Occupy Wall Street movement.[7]”

Uh no... This guy voted for Obama in 2008. He has zero to do with the Tea Party.

The Tea Party has no leader.

Not Palin.

Not Glenn Beck

Not anyone.

1. DO not post threads without a properly working url link to the source.
2. Do not post from RussiaToday rt.com without mentioning it in the title, it is a Kremlin run agitprop service, most freepers are pretty suspect of the source even if Max Keiser is quite entertaining.
3. Denninger has never been associated with the Tea Party and was on record early (soon after Santelli’s original rant) cutting his own jibe where he agreed with some and disagreed with others.
4. RT.com has actual TeaPArty founding members in their Rolodexes, at least a half dozen have done audio or televised interviews with Max Keiser, the fact they didn’t use any of them for this article is telling enough in itself.
5. Karl Denninger is a little whiny bitch, who has been wrong on precious metals and rights on equities, but he is indeed a trader who sees this a a normal business cycle and not a Tea Party level tipping point crisis.

Also, why isn't the media down in Zuccotti Park asking "Who is your leader?" Are they afraid of the answer?

They prefer to portray the Occupy Wall Street crowd as a spontaneous expression of popular sentiment . . . which is precisely what the Tea Party is and OWS is not.

Lots of people who hated the nazis were just dumb enough to get out in the street protesting the greedy rich. In the end, all they did was help bring the nazis to power.

They don’t call them useful idiots for nothing.

Karl Dennignger is kookball plant that pushed the Obama birth cert meme.

He was a huge Obama supporter in 2008 and tries to get people talking about wacky conspiracy stuff like Obama's birth cert.

He is a plant and a DU stooge.

“I have no idea what to think of what is going on in the world today.”

. . and that’s exactly as Obama’s handlers want it. Confusion. Hopey Changey Confusion. The U.S. is small potatoes with his bunch; they aim to rule the world.

Thank you, my impression exactly.

Someone help me out here. Doesn't Denninger own one of those mindless doomsday blogs like "business insider" or "marketplace oracle" or "economic collapse" that keep getting pimped around here? I'll have to do a search.

If this is true, and I don’t take any story at face value, but if it is, I would bet he is either a Paulbot or so far off the Libertarian scale that it’s hard to tell him apart from the Larouchers.

In a way..kinda stretch... you could say the silent majority became the Tea Party. The difference is the silent majority was coined by a pollitical entity while the TP was a We The People movement sparked by Santelli’s rant.

This one is easy. Every group has its malcontents and its publicity hogs, Denninger appears to be both of those.

The OWS crowd couldn't be more different from the TEA party in a general sense. In any way would care to compare.

Thats easy enough to understand, right?

True. The silent majority turned out for Nixon in '68 in much the same climate as we have now...

The Tea Party has not been silent though... there have been marches on the mall and numerous gatherings in towns all around the nation. I think we will need to stay vigilant because this OWS is not going away... they are funded. These leftist causes are astroturf and planned.
