Occupy, Nation of Islam hold joint rally
(WND) - The Occupy movement’s Boston chapter recently held a protest event in conjunction with the Nation of Islam to oppose what they called the “racist” closing of a local post office.
True to form, the article uses the opportunity to try and connect President Obama with the Nation of Islam.
I'm not sure if this story is true or not (and if it is ... I'm not sure why an occupy group would associate itself with the Nation of Islam), but of course the occupy movement is not a monolithic organization (which should be obvious enough). If for whatever reason someone in Boston thought it was a good idea to team up with an extremist, misogynistic, and racist organization, I might think they have shit for brains, but I still wouldn't associate it with OWS (generally speaking).
