The motley groups of Occupy Wall Streeters that gather across the United States and elsewhere are composed largely of individuals who are insufficiently intelligent and/or insufficiently educated and/or insufficiently articulate to express coherent policy objectives. In such circumstances, one can draw inferences about political viewpoints only from private behavior that is revealed in the public square. And this is what we find:
“Mobs blocking the streets and interfering with commuters. Signs and banners emblazoned with obscenities. Signs suggesting violence against authorities and businessmen. Endorsements from both the Nazi Party and the Communist Party. Signs blaming ‘the Jews’ for all things bad. Reports of sexual assaults on teenage girls and, in the case of Occupy Glasgow, Scotland, a gang rape. Rock-throwing. ” Robert Knight, ‘Massaging the news for the masses’, The Washington Times, October 31, 2011
When Michael Moore appears on television to endorse a new political movement, one knows instinctively that that movement will be as incoherent as Moore’s troubled mind and as unattractive as Moore’s gluttony-bloated belly-fat. Occupy Wall Streeters far outstrip Michael Moore, however, as they strip off in the public square to engage in body- functions usually reserved for the privacy of bedrooms and bathrooms.
The political philosophy of the Occupiers is roughly equivalent to that of August 1969 Woodstock hippies. Fundamentally, it is anti-American and anti-Western civilization – well anti-civilization to be more accurate. Somehow, however, the Occupiers prefer to lie in their own filth in American public squares rather than to migrate to North Korea, Somalia, South Yemen, or Burma, where they would truly be able to live without any of the handicaps of a capitalist system.
I wonder why?
