Leading House Democrat: "Occupy Wall Street" protests are like an American "Arab Spring"

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller following his speech, Larson said left-wing activists with “the right morals” are pushing America’s democracy to “evolve.”

The Connecticut congressman’s comments came during a welcoming function for international fellows hosted by World Affairs Journal.

Asked to elaborate on his perception of an American “Arab Spring”, Larson told TheDC, “I see that as people that are concerned in this country — youth taking to the street on Wall Street,” referring to the ongoing protests in lower Manhattan’s financial district…

“They see the inequities that exist in this country,” Larson explained, “and the point is that even an advanced democracy like ours — the Constitution says, ‘We the people, in order to create a more perfect union.’ We’re not there. It’s something that continues to evolve.”
