Barack Obama, US president, offered more support for protesters against the global financial system after a weekend of demonstrations in cities around the world, but called on them not to demonise those who worked on Wall Street.
On Sunday, Mr Obama honoured Martin Luther King at a dedication to a new memorial on National Mall in Washington. Referring to protests that have spread from Wall Street to London, Rome and elsewhere, Mr Obama said: Dr King would want us to challenge the excesses of Wall Street without demonising those who work there. Mr Obama had previously said the protests express the frustration of ordinary Americans with the financial sector.
A top Republican in Washington dramatically altered his stance on protesters involved in Occupy Wall Street just one week after comparing the movement to angry mobs. Eric Cantor, the Republican majority leader in the House of Representatives, told Fox News on Sunday that Republicans agreed there was too much income disparity in the country. More important than my use of the word [mobs] is that there is a growing frustration out there across the country and it is warranted. Too many people are out of work, he said.
Thousands took part in demonstrations this weekend around the world, many voicing their anger at the bail-out of banks and government austerity packages. It is ridiculous the government is willing to pay out over a trillion pounds to bail out banks while at the same time cutting our pensions and benefits in the name of austerity, offered Tai Wardallg, a protest organiser in London.
But some bankers and others in the protesters sights sought to spread the blame. Andreas Schmitz, head of the German banking federation and chief executive of HSBC Trinkaus, told the Financial Times on Sunday that protests against banks

That’s sure talking out of both sides of his mouth. Don’t “demoni[z]e” them?
I’m surprised that traders haven’t donned Satan suits (plentiful this Halloween) and come out roaring at the crowds. Hey, it would be droll.
It appears that Barry has come to the conclusion that these swastika-wearing, tantrum-throwing, young skulls full of mush are his last and only hope.
I’m confused. The people who work there must be prisoners. The Wall Street mythical monster is invisible! We must send in troops to find it!
Obama is a Marxist/commie agitating his brain-dead army of useful idiots.
Is this the tipping point moment?
OBAMA OFFERS MORE SUPPORT FOR PROTESTERS
You can access the article despite the subscriber firewall via Google News:
| All this looks like Obama's re-distribute wealth conversation with self-employed plumber Joe Wurzelbacher in Toledo, Ohio on October 12, 2008.
''Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?'' Wurzlebacher asked.
Obama explained, ''I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.''
The more they talk economic justice/redistributive change, the worse it is for Zer0.
Liberalism has finally succeeded in creating an entire generation that feels they are entitled to other people's stuff without actually having to work for it.
Forever trapped in the entitlement mentality, they want to reconstitute the Soviet Union in modern 21st century America.
Of course this is what the muzzie commie in chief wants. When his protestors get out of hand he can declare martial law to control them—and all of us.
Under martial law he can suspend elections and declare himself the president for life.
I know this sounds out in space, but I wouldn’t put anything past this bastard.
After all, he has declared on TV several times he wishes he could bypass congress and the constitution and just do what he wants.
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!!!!
Thanks, Honorary Serb. I guess I was lucky to get it to come up for me the first time. You are right. Tried again and got the subscriber requirement. :-(
On 9-11-2001 Muslim terrorists slammes planes into the WTC killing thousands in an attempt to destroy our economy and weaken America.
In 2008 an Kenyan muslim orgsnizer/sympathizer was elected president and has sent out his marxist terrorist troops to destroy the American economy and our lives as we know it. Obama started his campaign in Egypt and it has now reached our shores.
He is finishing the job the terrorists started 9-11 and his useful idiots are helping him. If it is this bad now, I can’t wait to see what his marxist terrorist armies are going to do at the polls.
“Obama extends support for protesters”
ObaMAO starting to add gasoline to the fire. Things are going to spiral out of control.
Which is the actual 99 0bama supports?
99 weeks of unemployment?
99 names of Allah?
99ers, Islamic superheroes?
I want their money, but I can’t just confiscate it. So, I want YOU GUYS to either shame them into submission (islam) or go and take it from them, even if you (or they, especially if they are ‘rich Jews’) die as a result.
I actually heard a woman calling in to Hannity the other day use the words ‘White people’ and a 4-letter word I’d not heard since I was a child—that starts with a ‘k.’
Also the America Nazi party supports these clowns.. So Obama is siding with the Nazis on this??
This seems to me to be extremely troubling that our President is advocating a disruption of our banking sector. Who does our President represent?
I’m really impressed by all those hand-made signs carried by these “spontaneous” demonstrators. /s
