OWS vs. Tea Party Protests1 min read

Listen to this article

Let’s put it plainly – the OWS protests are nothing like the Tea Party events.  Despite the possibility of valid grievances, their “tear down the system” socialist radicalism is anything but constructive.

It’s hard to pin them down on any one issue, not because of their sophomoric egalitarian approach to decision making, but because every liberal frustrated at losing the public arguments in the political arena is now joining in and acting out like juveniles in a gleeful rebellion against authority. Yeah, we all did that in college, then we grew up – well, some of us.

What’s even more shameful is the main stream media’s support for this foolishness, as well as the Administration’s. Pathetic.

Let’s catalog just a few of the less than fringe occupations at the occupations, as nicely discussed in IBD’s editorial ‘Occupy’ Protests Dump On America:

  • Lawlessness
  • Childishness
  • Violence
  • Arrests
  • Anti-semitism
  • Terrible Messes
  • Drugs
  • Rapes

Good luck with that.
