Occupy Wall Street Protestors: A Walking Contradiction

The latest media attempt to provide normalcy for the radical, anti-capitalist viewpoints currently squawking at a city near you, emphasizes a substantial link between the “Tea Party” and “Occupy Wall Street” protestors. This is an obvious attempt to lend credibility and a grassroots feel to a movement made up largely of youth, union members, or pay-for-protest anarchists. When you listen to the arguments from Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street protestors there is a sliver of agreement on the issue of corporate bailouts, but the similarities end there.

Wall Street Protestors= The Left Unhinged

Avowed socialists, trying to reproduce the grass roots effectiveness of the Tea Party, are staging a sit-in around Wall Street this week to protest corporate greed. As mentioned yesterday, I really believe the Left is pretty much unhinged. I’ve listened to at least a dozen of these protestors articulate their views on various radio programs while driving along shaking my head at the utter lack of common sense and sheer vitriol these people display towards successful Americans.

Much of their rhetoric is nothing more than one big circular argument. For instance, Sean Hannity asks the same question I often ask my friends on the Left, “How much tax would you consider enough for a “rich” person to pay so they can stop being taxed?”

Bank of America: Villain to the Masses

Legislators, and much of the American public, are swinging clenched fists at Bank of America for daring to charge a $5 fee on debit card transactions. Congress must rectify this and quickly! Something must be done today! The heinous crime must be thwarted. Yet another corrupt U.S. company tries to pillage the common man’s back pocket. Senators rail in Washington about the proposed unfairness of debit card fees while mandating these same banks (and all employers) pay employees a federal minimum wage whether they make a profit or not. Apparently the irony of restricting revenue while mandating payroll expense is lost on these purveyors of fairness and justice.

Unwavering Support for Israel

Gathering storm clouds hover ominously over Israel as long-standing enemies unify around its destruction. Iran continues to deny the Holocaust while planning another one. As Egypt, Libya, Syria, Turkey, and other Middle Eastern nations become increasingly hostile to the Jewish state, heightened tensions push Israeli leaders for a permanent solution to their border problem. U.S. leaders, once unequivocally linked to the Jewish state, now chase after a more balanced diplomacy while increasing pressure on Benjamin Netanyahu to trade land for peace with the Palestinian Authority. Here in America once rock solid support for Israel continues to erode as another generation, largely removed from church, finds no secular reason worthy enough to back our longtime ally. An increasing number of people just want the Jews to go away.
