From the folks who brought us Occupy. They lament all the Dumbocrats among you...
On September 17 last year a new crop of wild lefties took the crusty old guard by surprise . . . then, one by one, the old lefties came to Zuccotti to pay homage and offer their support. A struggle for the soul of Occupy has been percolating ever since. At stake is whether the young anarchic spirit and voice of Occupy will stay with the new left horizontals who launched the movement or whether it will move towards the monied old left. One of the most decisive moments in that struggle came when Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream fame started offering occupiers money claiming there were no strings attached.
