OKLAHOMA CITY As we rapidly approach the month anniversary of the Occupy OKC movement moving into Kerr Park in downtown Oklahoma City, there is evidence that the small group of true believers are being split apart by egos and infighting.
In the past week, Red Dirt Report has stopped by Kerr Park, talking to Occupants and trying to get a sense of how things are going. It's still largely unclear, but one thing is for certain - it is not the strong and seemingly unified organization it was on the day it was launched and that has been confirmed by people we have spoken to in recent days.
Red Dirt Report sat down with an Oklahoma City man we will call him Dan who wanted to share his thoughts on Occupy OKC, the local offshoot of the burgeoning Occupy Wall Street organization that started in September in New York City.
Dan said that as a working-class man who considers himself a libertarian/conservative, he was interested and initially sympathetic to Occupy OKC after reading a story about it linked at the popular Infowars.com website.
I was really curious at first, admitted Dan. I wanted to see if they would really accept everybody.
And initially he sensed that. Just a working-class guy who wasnt banging on bongo drums or sporting obvious tattoos, Dan was just happy that a real grassroots movement for change was forming, particularly in the waning months since the Tea Party peaked.
Dan said his views, that America can be great again and that true capitalism works, are shared by most people he knows. But in trying to talk to people involved with Occupy OKC he was soon struck by the fact that many of those gathered in Kerr Park were living in a dream world.

Living in a dream world....whaaaat????
The sociology of these so called occupy groups PROVES the capitalist and market models explained by Adam Smith, et al, years ago. They can gussy up the language and speak the “right” words but there IS competition and there IS profit motive and jockeying for position power and wealth accumulation....gee, just like capitalists.
Go freakin figger.
