Supporting the Occupy Movement

January 16, 2012

As readers of this blog have surely noticed I have had an “I Support the Occupy Movement” banner on the right hand side of my blog for quite some time now.

In the video below, which I strongly urge all my readers to watch, Bill Moyers shows clips of interviews with Occupy protesters, he also goes into an excellent discussion about the movement.

Now, what you will find in this video clip is not the portrayal of the protesters that you see on Fox News.  Fox, and other right-wing mouth-pieces have consistently portrayed the people of the Occupy Movement as drifter hippies who have no clue what they are doing or why they are doing it.  Juxtapose those images, which I am sure you have seen, with the people that Moyers has in this clip.  Pay special attention to the section with Professor Bill Black, who I have had on this blog previously.

My prediction: Once winter is over, and there are still NO prosecutions of anyone responsible for what has happened in this country, which emanated from Wall Street by the way, the Occupy Movement will be back.  2012 could turn out to be a very interesting year.
