Occupy Wall Street devolves into Twitter war

By John Ruberry

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:

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

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
