As one month of “Occupy Wall Street” passes, it’s fascinating how media and politicians alike, with one or two exceptions, have managed a remarkable suspension of disbelief when it comes to the organized source of these open-air leftist animal houses.
These are not protests against Wall Street, they’re protests for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign and are organized and directed by a number of his campaign supporting organizations, including one of his favorite — the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). It is also an indication of a virtual meltdown of the left, but could succeed if the GOP continues to fumble the ball in response.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has gone out of her way to portray the occupests as a spontaneous action by frustrated Americans.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
