Forum Post: 11 Reasons Why Occupy Wall Street Protesters Are Hypocrites If They Do Not Call For Barack Obama To Resign

If the Occupy Wall Street protesters truly believed in the things that they are proclaiming, then they would be calling for the immediate resignation of Barack Obama and his entire cabinet. The truth is that the Obama administration is responsible for most of the things that Occupy Wall Street is supposedly complaining about. If the Occupy Wall Street protesters were intellectually honest, we would see a flood of anti-Obama signs during these demonstrations. But instead we have barely heard a peep of criticism for Obama. In fact, the vast majority of the protesters seem very excited about sending Obama back to the White House in 2012. As will be clearly demonstrated in the rest of this article, this makes the Occupy Wall Street protesters tremendous hypocrites. If Occupy Wall Street wants to have any credibility whatsoever, it needs to call for Barack Obama to resign. Either Occupy Wall Street protesters will call for Barack Obama to be held accountable for his actions, or they are just a bunch of sheep. They cannot preach to us about how principled they are and yet turn a blind eye to everything that Barack Obama has been doing for the past 3 years.

Below I am going to analyze many of the demands that Occupy Wall Street protesters have been making. A lot of them have been directly taken from the formal list of complaints posted on the "official" organizing website of Occupy Wall Street.

As you will see, there are a whole lot of reasons why there "protesters" should be very angry with Barack Obama.

But we all know that nearly all of them will show up to vote for Obama once again in 2012.

Just like so many "true conservatives" apologized for George W. Bush for all those years, now we are seeing those on the left apologize for Barack Obama.

It is truly sickening.

For a lesson in economics and to be able to formulate a cogent argument, get past any indignation over the "hypocrite" label and read the rest of this article at :

Hello I'm Quanzo Pfter, Chief Executive of Ramon Film Productions in Uganda. I make over 9000 thousand US dollars every day, and my corporation spans 1000 workers over seven different oceans. Here is a trailer to a film that I've personally had a hand in: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BymeLkZ7GqM

Anyways, I just want to say that I'm really rich because of all my hard work and it had nothing to do with my willingness to take risks with my family and the general lottery of life. So all of you "99%" communist nazi bangers should just get a job and stop smoking weed like they said on Fox News. So what if I can make unlimited contributions to my representatives? So can you!

Don't believe me? Here's a picture of me with my latest invention: http://www.travelfunny.com/funny-pictures/funny-africa/funny-nigeria-02.jpg

Anyways you guys should know that Democratic Socialism breaks the Second Law of Thermodynamics, so there's no way it could work in our Capitalist system.

back in the days when everyone i knew was deliriously oozing hope about obama, ran prieur -- who is absolutely freaking brilliant if you haven't read him -- said that obama would be the measure of what can be accomplished within this system. if he couldn't do it, it couldn't be accomplished. i do believe he is right. i think obama is just a figure head at this point. i think what's happening at ows is community building and people will figure out other ways of living as it becomes manifestly obvious that politcians never really were the bosses of us. at least that's what i hope.

Obama is a sales man puppet just like Bush was. If ANY president stood up for Truth and Peace and followed through they would end up like Kennedy. Dead. We should be encouraging him to be honest and real for ONCE. He is the president NOW. Why are you going to wait for another year? He needs to stand up NOW and DEMAND PEACE. There is no election next year if Peace is not demanded now. People need to wake up. This is just beginning and it's going to happen FAST!

Because this movement is orchestrated with the purpose of being a vehicle for Obama's reelection. He has already announced that it will be the central theme for his reelection campaign. You won't see this movement making it a priority to denounce him, it will just be used to corral in more votes.

Sure, Obama used black magic to travel 30 years back in time and fixed the past.

I don't recall President Obama sending millions of jobs to China like corporate America did.

Have you heard of Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of General Electric who reported worldwide profits of $14.2 billion, and said $5.1 billion of the total came from its operations in the United States. Its American tax bill? None. In fact, G.E. claimed a tax benefit of $3.2 billion. The same CEO who Obama hand picked to head his "Jobs Council" and who we all saw sitting to Obama's side at the "Jobs summit" when Obama made the joke about "it turns out shovel ready jobs weren't really shovel ready, ha, ha, ha". The same CEO who is moving is the headquarters of of its 115 year old x-ray division to Beijing in a plan to invest about $2 billion in China over the next few years.  But then moving core pieces of its business overseas is nothing new for GE.  Under Immelt, GE has shipped tens of thousands of good jobs out of the United States. The very person that Obama has entrusted with solving the unemployment crisis is responsible for shipping thousands of jobs out of the country, but wtf, its Obama, he’s off limits - criticize him and your a racist. No body "recalls" any of the totally disastrous, incompetent, and disingenuous things Obama has done because they hate Fox, which is the only news show that does what the media is suppose to do and because, they refuse to pay attention. Read the rest of the article at the link I included. Its not that long and it will be worth your time.
