Once in awhile, I read an article written by some myth-informed disciple of Far Right Wing Conservative idiot-ology that claims that the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) People are spinning their wheels and are not getting their message out.
While I suspect that some of the Reichtists would like for it to be true that the Occupy Wall Street message is failing because of the effectiveness of the militarized civilian storm troopers that are often sent onto the scene to bust heads and mace geriatrics, the fact is that the message is, indeed being heard-- and loudly-- and in high places.
If that were not the case, the Reicht would not take so many opportunities to gloat about their self-supposed victories over the 99%. The very fact that the forces of evil write about the Occupy Wall Street movement so much is ample evidence to me, anyway, that the message is not only being heard but is probably causing quite a few oppressors some sleepless nights.
I read this one article, just today, where one of the members of Conservatism's Idiot-ocracy compared the Occupy Wall Street Protesters to Nazis again. I thought to myself, "Well, that comparison coming from that source reveals a lot of hypocrisy!"
The reason I said that to myself is that I had also just read the account of where the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) was reported to have welcomed White Nationalist ideology to be spouted from their podiums in their forums and meetings.
The Reicht seems to think that the Occupy Wall Street Movement is going to be ineffective in getting major policy change in America. To me that is kind of like some bureaucrat in the Tsar's Advisory Board in 1917 saying that all the commotion from the Peasants gathered out at the front gate of the Imperial Palace isn't going to amount to anything.
The author of the article I was reading seemed to be gloating over the fact that police successfully dispersed a crowd of Protesters from the area of Wardman park when some of the Occupy Wall Street people went there to make their case heard at the Conservative Political Action Conference being held in a nearby hotel.
The author of this piece gave me the impression, through the writing he or she did, that the fact that the Occupy Wall Street people were run off by the police is some kind of sign that this protest attempt was a total failure and that it had no effect on the big picture.
My question to this author and to all others who hold the same views about OWS ineffectiveness would be this: "If the actions of Occupy Wall Street were such a gawd-awful failure (As you seem to suggest) and if their presence isn't having any effect on the National Dialogue, then why the Heck are you spending your valuable time writing about it on a blog that is going to be seen by millions of people?
That doesn't make a bit of sense to me.
Unless, of course, occupy wall street is having an effect and it is scaring the pants off a lot of people who are trying to peddle the disparaging view about the Protests.
And that is what I think it is all about!
All I have to say is "Hoo-Rah For The 99%! Go, Occupy Wall Street Movement...Go! We're With You!"
