No Sympathy For The Devil

You know why the rest of the world is not only sympathetic toward, but also joining America in #Occupy? Because, I think for the first time since the 60's/early 70's, they see the same thievery and brutality exhibited by the American government toward its own citizens as they see regularly in their own countries. They see America much like their own countries in that our oppressive rich and arrogant 1% is very much like their oppressive rich and arrogant 1%. Solidarity among the citizens of the world.

In my humble opinion.

And even though the "main stream" media seems to miss all these "main stream" events, we have the internet revolution to fill in...

Not to mention the false arrests of citizens, reporters, lawyers, medics and uninvolved bystanders; their cracked skulls; brain damage; lacerated spleens; broken ribs; busted teeth; their property destroyed or confiscated and their Constitutional rights trampled by the police all while unarmed and peacefully protesting.

Except, of course, for their highly volatile "linking of arms."

Kudos to you, 1%. Thank you for your arrogance, which propelled this movement against you in ways it could never have achieved on its own.

So keep using fascist tactics. It's worked out so well in the past.
