For over a month now, the excuse of not knowing how OWS started led some to become cheerleaders of the powerful over the powerless (and I mean, people who used to think differently) 

Finally, the burning question about the identity of the organizers gets answered

By all accounts, the idea for the protest was hatched by Adbusters, a not-for-profit media organization that was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1989.

n mid-July, a senior editor at Adbusters, Micah White, floated an e-mail to subscribers with the idea that they “flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades, and occupy Wall Street for a few months.” As a result, a group of about one hundred people began meeting regularly in Tompkins Square Park to plan the protest, creating the NYC General Assembly, a bold and difficult experiment in direct democracy that has become the ever-expanding decision-making body of Occupy Wall Street. At some point during the summer, the loose collection of hackers known as Anonymous joined the protest

It’s an interesting read which confirms my conclusion that this does NOT come from Obama’s re-election campaign rolodex. Will this make a difference? Will the Klown not celebrate now when OWS people are stink-bombed, pepper-sprayed or arrested? It remains to be seen.

Update

Still no answer from the Klown, but his posse is hitting me with the usual “but what do they want?”. To which I am responding with this picture

.

In a typical right wing style rat-f*king, metro is trying to convince people that it’s not Wall Street that steals our money and ruin our economy. It’s those protesting them.

This cover runs in NYC, PA and other cities

and this one is made especially for Boston:

Hmmm… why compare the income of a person with the funds of an entire movement? Disingenuous much?

, Just one word for Metro and the rest of the media: unlike the banks you are protecting, OWS does share its bounty with everyone. here’s some propaganda of the opposite kind from Daily News

Occupy Wall Street campground becoming spot for vagrants, ex-cons & ‘takers’ to call home

So, who is sharing and who isn’t?
