Skip to comments.Zotted Poster and Tea Party founder (ha ha) (Karl Denninger) backs Occupy Wall Street
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.
That is as far as I need to go with this article. I never heard of this guy.
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.
Just as I thought NOTHING!!!
He isn’t “backing” them.
This thread is a fake.
By the way Beckett08, this is absurd. Do you think it is absurd?
Will you answer?
I have no idea what to think of what is going on in the world today.
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.
Santelli yes, Denninger, who he?
Nevah heard of him.
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.

Where was this Denninger guy then?
Then you need to go crap on cop cars with the commie slime that brought ya!
“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.”).. Rick Santelli’s CNBC mention of a tea party 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.
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. By February 1, the idea had spread among various conservative and libertarian-oriented blogs, forums, websites and through a viral email campaign.
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.”.
Denninger stated on RT that he supports the Occupy Wall Street movement.”
