For the last few weeks I have kept back from making any comments in regards to this protest going on in the area on or near Wall Street in New York City, New York, USA. The reason being is that I thought it would not last more than a day or two than it would fade out. Now that a few weeks have passed since this “Occupy Wall Street” in NYC has begun and after having both heard and read what has been going on, this blogger has got to put a comment in.
This very well-organized protest rally going on in not just only in New York City, but in a number of cities around the country, including Hartford, Connecticut, USA, today in Bushnell Park is an ongoing series of protests called for by this group which is based in Canada called “Adbusters” who had gotten its inspiration from the “Arab Spring” protests that had taken place in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt early this year.
The Adbusters group in a statement says that the goal of these protests are:”Beginning from one simple demand – a presidential commission to separate money from politics – we start setting the agenda for a new America.”
A “new America”? Rather IMHO, the SAME OLD, SAME OLD radical leftist agenda being touted under the new and improved idea called a “new America”. What is really is going on is a poor copy of the much more successful “Tea Party Movement”. This Occupy Wall Street is simply a call for greater socialism in government at a time when in the United States has an out-of-control federal government in spending, taxing, and overregulations. The Tea Party movement to its credit which in its beginnings by CNBC’s Rick Santelli in the his “classic rant” heard around the world from the city of Chicago, Illinois, USA on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. The Tea Party movement has since has gone on to work behind the scenes to get conservative GOP Republicans elected, first in the November, 2010 mid-term elections, and now on for the upcoming 2012 USA Presidential elections.
What I see in these protests going on in New York City and elsewhere around the USA, which now even the unions have decided to get involved as well as more support coming from additional college students is simply another way of promoting class warfare in action by placing the blame in the wrong place, when the blame should go where it should belong to the Washington D.C. beltway.
What is the reasons for this series of protests by Occupy Wall Street? Is it simply to make larger the USA federal government and to have what conservative talk-radio show host Mark Levin calls a “soft tyranny” of socialism? If this is the liberal answer to the Tea Party movement, it has FAILED bigtime to win over the “new silent majority” in the United States.

“RIck Santelli discussing Obama’s Mortgage Plan.” This classic rant gave birth to the tea party movement on February 19, 2009.

“Michael Moore, filmmaker, activist and author of “Here Comes Trouble,” calls on people all over the country to bring the Occupy Wall Street movement to their communities. Later, Moore denounces the state of Georgia for executing Troy Davis.”
During the April 15, 2011 tea party movement for Income Tax Day 2011 in Hartford at the Connecticut State Capitol Steps, here is a peaceful, non-violent protest gathering by persons attending the tea party protest that day.
“I gave a short speech at our state Tea Party Protest on what is usually “Tax Day”…this was my 3rd year in a row going to one of these! Fun people =)”

These protests being done by Occupy Wall Street cannot be compared to the Tea Party movement by any stretch. Tea Party movement people are peaceful, non-violent folks who support people in both law enforcement and in the military. The Occupy Wall Street protesters it seems did not show any respect for the law or law enforcement people as this video from a few days has shown.
“Occupy Wall Street protesters march from Liberty Plaza to the Brooklyn Bridge on the afternoon of Saturday, October 1, 2011. Blocked by the police from crossing the footpath, a large group of protesters chose the roadbed, which is reserved for cars. The arrests seen in this video happened between around 4:30 and 5 p.m.”
