An article posted last week in Buzzfeed, Occupy Wall Street’s Final Implosion, caught my eye.
Occupy has devolved into a Twitter war.
Take a look at this Tweet:
— Occupy Wall Street (@OccupyWallSt) February 6, 2014
Big deal. Occupy is all but dead and Tunney, a Google software engineer, is a general with no army, along the lines of the delusional “King” Viserys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. Actually the Occupy movement is dead, all that remains is the name calling and competing claims as to who founded the collective of leftists.
While I didn’t visit the Zuccotti Park Occupy camp, I did so at its counterparts in Chicago, Las Vegas, and Denver, and I attended an Occupy march in Milwaukee. Oh, were these people cocky. “We can change the world,” Vermin Supreme sang at an Occupy Chicago rally. The movement was going to morph the energy from Cairo’s Tahrir Square protests and the drive to recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker into the far-left’s ultimate dream–a world wide uprising that would make the Russian Revolution look like a brush war.
But the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood became the ruling party in Egypt and Walker survived the recall challenge. And now Egypt is run by the military.
The world has changed–no one believes it won’t–but not the way Occupy Wall Street had in mind.
Meanwhile the Tea Party, a true grass-roots movement, is alive and well. And while thousands of Occupy activists were arrested during its halcyon days, I’m still waiting for the first Tea Party bust.
It’s a new week with a slight change to our goal.
With the first of our Villagers writing today this brings the number of paid writers here to 9 thus our new weekly goal to pay the mortage and the writers is $350.
As we were short by $185 last week a five dollar higher goal might seem counter intuitive but given the record of the last three months and the last year I have faith that the readers will not only help us make the higher goal for this week 15 readers at $25 will do it
But will help make up last week’s shortfall to keep the monthly target in play
