Tea Party Protests vs. Wall Street Protests
By Kay Daly
Natasha Lennard, protesting with the leftists against Wall Street, corporations, capitalism and money in general, was wearing two hats the other day at the Wall Street protest. She was not only stomping around with looney leftists like Michael Moore, Rosanne Barr, Susan Sarandon (stopping her limo at the protests on her way to Italy in a private jet), but she was supposed to be at the event to report on it for the New York Times. Wonder if any NYT reporters picked up a sign at a Tea Party protest or if they just scanned the crowd desperately looking for the lone loose cannon with something remotely offensive to make the entire Tea Party movement look bad?
In most of the man on the street interviews of these Wall Street protests, the kids who are there ramble the same incoherent, leftist rhetoric they have lapped up for years while matriculating through their liberal indoctrination centers otherwise known as the American education system. Part Marxist, part anarchist, part leftover bong water, part liberal professorspeak, thematically these protests are all over the liberal map trying to be all things to all liberals and are ending up more pathetic than emblematic of any kind of a movement. Although clearly stupidity can be catching. Look at who was elected President in the last election for Pete’s sake.
In one interview, the reporter asked one young person if a CEO came downstairs from one of the buildings there on Wall Street and offered him a job, would he accept it? The young person looked confused and continued shrieking about hegemonic frameworks, dialogues and probably threw in an “Off with his head” in an homage to Rosanne Barr’s brilliant idea to guillotine the wealthy who don’t obey the redistribution plan. Clearly, the kid will be there with his unemployed mad self for the next few days or weeks, since some poor Mom or Dad at home is going to work at a job to finance Junior’s big adventure against the big bad corporate villains in Gotham. What Junior hasn’t figured out yet about life is that someone has to pay the bill and it always comes due. Totally, utterly clueless. Possibly beautifully educated, but absolutely clueless about how the world works outside of the pretty bubble that has been created for him. Utterly clueless.
A question — Why is it that when Tea Party folks protest, it is all about liberty, freedom, the founding fathers, the shining city on the hill, opportunity, the American Revolution, and peaceful, not one arrest. But when the liberals protest? It is about anger, hatred, faces covered with bandannas to avoid identification, class warfare, us vs. them, violence……..the French Revolution, and property damage, injuries and arrests.
Vive la difference!
