Needless to say, our corporate masters are scared spitless that they are the targets of a few thousand worldwide protests. I note that even in the Catholic blogosphere (such as here), the attempt is in full flower to discredit:
… perpetual adolescents … babies (having trouble getting the age group nailed down here, I see) … sheer ignorance … (they) live in their own filth … too many degrees in grievance driven fields like Gender Studies or unicorn and glitter … Leftist dirtbags … OWS scumbags (so which is it: scum or dirt?) … squatters … their filthy lucre …
It’s all entertaining to a point, if you like comedy.
Comforting to know the all-seeing, all-knowing Catholic commentariat is on the ball with yours truly: I’m a hypocrite, naturally, just for smelling up their echo chamber with a hint of doubt. Personally, I think they need a higher level of skepticism when it comes to what the conservative media, pajamas and suits both, are feeding them. Me, I prefer a nice smoked turkey sandwich on pumpernickel bread.
I have no direct experience with either Occupy or the Tea Party. Took advantage of an opportunity to take my wife out for lunch yesterday instead of wandering over to see what Occupy ISU was up to. I see my city has its second Occupy group. Good. Maybe I’ll check out one of their events. Being the good Boy Scout I was raised to be, I can assure you I’ll be picking up my own trash, thank you. Unless it should instead be recycled.
