Bill O’reilly November 16th, 2011.
“In the beginning, there was some sympathy toward the protesters, who believe the federal government should take action against financial institutions that cheat. In the face of the terrible recession, that message is a powerful one, and so the “Occupy Wall Street” movement got some traction.
But the more we saw and heard, the more fair-minded Americans came to believe that the “Occupiers” were not interested in legitimate issues. Many of them simply want to blow up the economic system.
In addition, some of their behavior was and is reprehensible: all kinds of violent crime, all kinds of provocation against the police, all kinds of depraved behavior in general.
A picture taken by the New York Post shows hypodermic needles that were taken out of the New York City site. Isn’t that nice? I don’t believe we saw any hypodermic needles at the Tea Party protests, or am I wrong?
The left-wing media is still trying to portray the “Occupiers” as the liberal equivalent to the Tea Party. One simple question: Would you prefer that your daughter demonstrate with the Tea Party people or with the “Occupiers”? You make the call, remembering the hypodermic needles.
A recent Wall Street Journal poll asked: Do you consider yourself a supporter of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement? Sixty-three percent of Americans say they do not support the movement; just 28 percent say they do.
Because President Obama was sympathetic to the movement in the beginning, along with many members of the Democratic Party, this presents a big political problem for them. And so officials in 11 cities got on a conference call to discuss how to deal with the “Occupiers.”
JEAN QUAN, MAYOR, OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA: What had started as a political movement and a political encampment ended up being an encampment that was no longer in control of the people who started them.
And that’s true. To be fair — and we always are on “The Factor” — some of the “Occupy” protesters are well-intentioned folks who believe the financial system is no longer fair. That’s a legitimate debate. But they have been overrun by thugs, anarchists and the crazies who intimidate. If you are a violent person, people usually back off.
So the “Occupy Wall Street” movement is dead, finished as a legitimate political force in this country. And that’s a good thing.”
Isn’t this brilliant? Notice how often Bill mentions hypodermic needles. Bill, you are looking for needles in a haystack! The fact of the matter is our country is messed up. The Occupy Wall Street movement is an adolescent event that foreshadows more severe and broader protests to come. So wipe that cocky smirk off your face Bill. That is a memo.
Socrates, Jesus, Darwin, Beethoven, Einstein, and George Washington came back from the dead to review the state of America. Socrates examined our souls, Jesus reviewed our spirituality, Darwin assessed our evolutionary potential and the environment, Beethoven observed our music and culture, Einstein analyzed our employment of scientific knowledge, and Washington reviewed our political and economic environment. All of these men were terrified by what they observed, but they couldn’t all agree on a solution or compose a clear singular sound bite for the media.
Bill interviewed this group of men and listened to each of their opinions on the current state of America and suggestions to make improvements. He was shocked by their responses and inability to agree and design a “legitimate” solution within the current construct of our economic and political systems. As such, he concluded they were a bunch of far left liberal loonies, crazies, and anarchists.
