Faceoff: OWS vs TeaParty

There is a visual aide (Infographic) that compares the OWS and TeaParty. It's interesting. I wish I had time to verify its accuracy.

Same thing, different link:

Sorry that this is just a link, but I think its worth checking out.

The only comparison to be made is "large group of people"...after that, it's significant distinctions in purpose, crime and filth...with all of the negatives falling on the OWC.

I like the crazy chart that is linked to, it must have been created by a true hater.

Notice how it implies that a large part of the Tea Party is composed of "The Racist"!

As if that is part of the Tea Party agenda, while the haters on Wall Street spew their racist

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."

Unlike the Tea Party hate-spewers whoever made this chart defined "racist":

Interested in removing Obama because of his race

Retired and has nothing else to do but complain about the government

Blames the democrats for all of the problems we are facing

Geez, that last characteristic, it reminds me of something.....

Those "disgusting hippies and low-lifes" regardless of how you may disdain them, do have a right to be heard.

Unsurprisingly, some of the protesters also had middle-class backgrounds. But that salient fact doesn't make for a good long screechy screed, does it?

That's not even coherent.

Sure, we heard them...then we smelled them...now it's time for them to go back to their parent's basements.

Who cares?

There's the fallacy in logic again. Just because you don't agree with the Occupy Wall Street protesters, it does not make them morons.

The power was not given to you to summarily dismiss that which does not please you or accord with your BELIEFS.

Their behavior makes them morons.
