(Fox News)   There are many layers to the OWS onion, and each one is more difficult than the last to peel back. But it's starting to look like there is a single, rotten core at the dark center of this movement, and that core's name is ... ACORN   (foxnews.com ) divider line 279

beta_plus: OWS is a grass roots movement - if you say otherwise, you are racist.

The Tea Party, OTOH, is an astroturf program orchestrated by the Koch brothers from their evil secret mountain top headquarters while they pet white cats, twirl their evil mustaches, and laugh maniacally. If you say otherwise, you are racist.


Which Tea Party, the one pre-2008 election or the one with events organized (or at least promoted) by Fox News?

Well, it's true, the Freedomworks memo that was published clearly showed deep influence over the TeaParty that Freedomeworks was asserting as early as spring 2009

I know, it's them leftists at ThinkProgress, but they do cite and link to actual documentation (new window)
.
Just because you can't accept the fact that the TeaParty was hopelessly compromised by big DC lobbying firms (which were, in fact, founded by the Koch brothers and they continue to fund them and sit on their boards).... after the 2008 elections is no reason to project your false reality onto other movements that spring up around the country.

Also, you're not racist for holding onto your pipe dreams. You're just kinda dumb.

jayhawk88: Look, it's really not that hard. George Soros, at the behest of the Clintons, founds ACORN to further the Liberal Agenda, as dictated by Big Hollywood and the Liberal Media. They utilize the Internet, created by noted Liberal Al Gore, to stomp out the last vestiges of dissent through the use of illegal downloading and fixation on the Gay Agenda. This, of course, is all a smokescreen to conceal the real agenda, which is nothing less than the installation of a total socialist regime in the US Government, made possible by the removal of all gun rights, as well as the power of Affirmative Action and the Unions.

We are literally less than a year away from Barack Hussein Obama from being re-elected President, which due to the Kyoto Treaty will grant Obama dictatorial powers somehow, which he will use to disband all the armed forces in favor of UN Peacekeeping forces, which has secretly been building up their forces thanks to the billions of dollars siphoned from the US and the EU during the recent banking crises. Obama will use these forces to remove us from the Gold Standard, which as it turns out is not an economic policy but in reality seizing all gold currently in the hands of private investors, and creating a giant, golden bull donkey in the middle of Missouri, underneath the Gateway Arch, which, thanks to the secret cache of Diamonds held in the Clinton Stronghold in Northern Arkansas and the LHC, will trigger a global EMP that will knock out all electronics, allowing NASA to activate their weather controlling satellite system without interference, flooding 90% of the globe, leaving the Liberal Strongholds in Colorado as one of the few functioning communities and sources of dry land.

Somacandra: Why is Occupy Wall Street so horrible again? I mean, its not like they started a war on false pretenses and a single sleazy criminal source and ended up killing hundreds of thousands of civilians without finding any Weapons of Mass Destruction without ever paying reparations or issuing an apology.


Aside from the looting, the raping, the drugs, the crime, the damage they casued to property and local business, nothing

SquiggelyGrounders: Really? ACORN again? Its hilarious that conservatives rush to demonize these benign groups. Sure Occupy changed public discourse. Props to them. But what substantial changes have occurred because of it? Fox going after them is like a bulldog going after a mouse -- retards attacking the ineffective.


You realize it took decades of protests for women's suffrage and civil rights legislation to be passed, right? Should those first protestors have just given up because the entire country didn't immediately change their opinions overnight? Social change is slow. It may take a whole generation. Maybe two. Getting the message out and getting it covered in the news is really all that can be expected at this time. And as always, the forces of conservatism who are fine and dandy with the status quo are fighting back with all they've got.

SkinnyHead: "Thousands of us are arriving in Sacramento on March 5 to Occupy the Capitol with our demand that the 1 percent pay for jobs, education, essential services, and a better future,"

A group claiming to represent the great majority (in Russia, they called them Bolsheviks) threatening to illegally occupy the state capitol building to demand that others be forced to pay for their "jobs, education, essential services, and a better future" sure sounds like communism, doesn't it?

I get it. OWS is good because the Tea Party was bad. OWS is good because at least they're protesting something.

Sorry, don't buy it. OWS has not accomplished any meaningful national change despite their lengthy occupations and all the media coverage. Christ, the Occupy Buffalo group couldn't put together a comprehensible agenda if their lives depended on it. No one locally took them seriously, and now that they've been booted from their camp, they've been forgotten by almost everyone.

An effective movement achieves significant things. OWS is rather pathetic when it comes to measuring meaningful changes attributable to their campers.

If this new group is using taxpayer funding to support a political cause, I can see the issue. If not, then so wat?

LasersHurt: They managed to swing a debate that was focused mostly on austerity and criticism of government towards "The wealthy are in charge of the entire country and have their balls swaddled by every law on the books, how about some equality and everyone does their fair share?"

Maybe they weren't extraordinarily effective in a direct sense, but their presence has certainly helped shape the way we talk about inequality in the country.


Swing the debate is always a cop out answer.

Lot's of organizations get people talking. Like PETA. That doesn't mean they are going to have any effect.

/slaughtering chickens is just like the holocaust. That one stirred up a lot of debate. We're still eating chickens though.

[www.ihatethemedia.com image 250x277]

You gotta admit, you would have fun with the lady on the right.

Nahh, she's a conservative. You know she just lays there like a dead fish.


Oh boy, you need to talk to some divorced liberal guys who had liberal biatch wives and rethink your position. For real. "Easy lay" and "recreation drug user" in college doesn't translate into a happy life with an "open minded" liberal women. Cucking Funts, by the second or third year. And they become conservative on any issue you want them to be liberal on - except for being able to buy your kids a BB gun, you still can't do that. Towards middle age, the frequency at which they talk about sexual freedom and their vaginas is inversely proportional to frequency of use they allow it to see. But you can't legally kill them for it. I know, it's way farked up.

/is what I've observed with others. I'm not talking about women who lean Democrat, or liberated types, I'm talking about "liberal and proud" types. Good luck, or just avoid them if you value happiness or tire of constantly being shown you are at best adequate.

Oh come on we do it with the Tea Party all the time. One misspelled sign means they are all stupid, one racist comment represents them all, etc.

If we can't label large groups of people by the couple of douches that sneak in then we got nothing to talk about.

themeaningoflifeisnot: OWS is good because the Tea Party was bad


The Tea Party wasn't bad, it was just stupid and misguided.

Tea Party folk saw their lives go down the shiatter slowly over the past 30 years and they want someone to blame, and some keen opportunists in power told them what they want to hear, that's all.

OWS, on the other hand, are right the fark pissed off, because they are the Millenials, they are getting out of school (peak year for Millenials was 90, which makes the largest age group 22 this year) and they're having difficulty finding work and getting ahead.

So they have a right to voice their frustration.
