The Occupy Wall Street “movement” just picked up a few more noteworthy supporters.
Our own FORMER Speak of the House, Nancy Pelosi (Why does it never get old to write that?), and more-than-likely soon-to-be former President Barack Obama and his embarrassment of a running mate, Vice President Joe Biden, have all offered words of praise for the supposedly grassroots, left-wing group.
But now Venezuelan socialist dictator Hugo Chavez and even members of the Iranian military – who don’t speak out without the support of their sadistic, freedom-repressing government leaders – are offering up good wishes to Occupy Wall Streeters.
Just out of curiosity, what does that say when Iran – a country that just sentenced one of its own to a year in jail and 90 lashes for pointing out the obvious: that citizens there lack basic freedoms of expression – supports your movement?
Somehow, I don’t think that it says anything good. But that’s just me.
Personally, I much prefer to be associated with reasonable, intelligent men like GOP presidential contender Herman Cain, a man who used logic to call it like he sees it.
When a reporter asked him his opinion on the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, he first pointed out that, “Wall Street didn’t write these failed economic polices. The White House did.” And then he followed that statement up with a perfectly reasonable question: “Why don’t you move the demonstrations to the White House?”
Good question, right? But don’t expect an answer from the protesters. They’re too busy chanting at each other very oddly, as they did in Occupy Atlanta, or having sex in public, defecating on police cars and making a general nuisance of themselves in New York City.
I really wouldn’t be surprised if their supporters were also involved in the dangerous bleach fight at my local Wal-Mart, which I will not be patronizing ever again. And they’d probably riot just as easily for Connecticut prisoners’ right to pornography as they are against what they see as corporate greed.
They’re just that mature. And ridiculous.
