You know that twice deployed Iraq-War Veteran that got shot in the face?
Remember him when you hear Beckkk claim this protest is a Bolshevik plot against America.

Remember him when the 3 stupider-than-stupid 'moronic 3' on 'FOX and Friends' talk about the protestor's "stinking up the place with their filth and dirt".

Remember him when FOX news says "these protestor's know nothing about the way America works. They're just lazy, and greedy".

Remember him when fright-wing pundits calls these protestor's "Dirty Hippies".

Remember him when when the MSM is feeding you BULLSHIT propaganda because they ARE the 1% and their message will always have an agenda. as long as they are owned and sponsored by BIG OIL, BIG PHARMA, BIG BANKS, HEALTH INSURERS, BIG CORP, WAR MACHINE etc. You can be sure you are being fed BULLSHIT biased 'journalism'.

This is BIGGER than most people even know it is. EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN AMERICA knows about these Occupy Protests. Someone occupied the fucking Tundra. More people know about these protests than probably know who Joe Biden is. Yet the coverage remains sparse. The only message that gets out is the occasional violence, NEVER the ACTUAL MESSAGE. They want their soundbite worshipping viewers to only remember keywords, like 'violence' 'mass arrests' 'possible anti-capitalists' etc etc. But what's happening IMHO is that people are finally starting to wake up to not only the real world BS that is occurring in our society, but also the media BS that is occurring. Which is why people poll after poll are starting to empathize more and more.

It's happening.

Remember those petty little ridiculous Tea Party events? A bunch of misinformed citizens who have since faded into oblivion since had a whole year 24/7 coverage dedicated to them. 2010: the year the corporate media fed us a gigantic steaming clusterfuck pile of BS known as the Tea Party because it obviously served their best interests and the interests of BIG OIL, BIG PHARMA, BIG BANKS, HEALTH INSURERS, BIG CORP, WAR MACHINE. This is now becoming common knowledge. And when people's minds start opening to even the media's propaganda tactics the veil will be lifted.

There's a war going on outside...

1. All those ugly people wouldn't know the truth if it smacked them in the face.
Disgusting POS.

5. It'll take a miracle for the wingnuts to wake the fuck up.

They will avoid realization at all costs because of the blow admitting they were somehow wrong would deal to their fragile egos.

The 1% is still counting on having a ready-to-go army of weak-minded authoritarian goons to lock things down for them. We might be lucky that these protests are happening almost 6 years ahead of schedule.

I wonder who they were planning to install as the first American dictator in 2017?

13. Wingnuts never wake up until they're thrown out on the streets.
When that happens, they cry to the government for help fast it makes your head spin.

Can the MSM gerbils be any more obvious that they're downplaying the breadth of OWS except for the reports of the occasional incidents usually initiated by rogue cops?

15. They'll never wake up. Back in the 1930s they voted against FDR.
And he was fighting the Great Depression with the New Deal. What makes anyone think they'll wake up during the Great Recession? For that matter, I'm sure they would have been willing recruits to the Business Plot, a plan launched by the industrialists at the time to overthrow FDR and establish a pro-Hitler corporate dictatorship here at home.

7. Signing papers at my attorney's, and he is all for OWS. Amazing.
I was hesitant to bring it up, but glad I did.

The sooner we can get it through to people that this is in their best interest, the sooner we will gain more support from the remainder of society.

We've had bs crammed down our throats long enough.

8. Those Tea Party events were pure theater.
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 05:59 AM by Enthusiast
The media coverage of the Tea party protests and the health care reform town hall meeting anger was planned long in advance.

Our democracy has essentially ended. This just has not been recognized as of yet.
