How DARE they cost Wall Street people their jobs.
How DARE they talk of violence.
How DARE they not demonstrate in Washington
How DARE they own I-Pads
How DARE they frighten the tourists away
How DARE they be mostly white
How DARE they include the homeless
How DARE they not work
How DARE they be fed decent food
How DARE they be students not attending class
How DARE they call for bank boycotts
How DARE they go home and take showers
How DARE they be anti-war
How DARE they make the police work overtime
How DARE they call for large taxes on the mega- rich.
And then to top it all off, many complain THEY DO NOTHING
After escoriating OWS for all the awful things they DO, the DO NOTHING complaint is indeed the silliest.
This is the largest continuous demonstration in the United States since those against the Vietnam War. Whether you love it or hate it it is IMPORTANT and getting worldwide notice. All movements start off small but some can bring down governments, some can get Czars shot, kings beheaded, slaves freed, dictators disembowelled, and Constitutions rewritten.
It is the most significant grass roots action in 40 years.
The corporate media decided first to ignore the movement (hypocritcally after having gone into thunderous ravings about the right-wing well-orchestrated, corporate sponsored, teeny tea party movement.)
They were forced to turn 180 degrees after having been called out on their corporate toadying and made to look like craven fools...and little by little OCCUPY was recognized.
But now OCCUPY is a household word and it is not going away, it is going worldwide, and the genie will not be put back in the bottle.
