The 99% vs The Tea Party

with 2 comments

There has been a lot of talk in the media recently about the Occupy Wall Street movement being the Liberal answer to the Tea Party movement.  I can’t help but wonder why Liberals would even want to compare themselves to a group the so fondly call Tea Baggers and not so fondly call even fouler things I won’t repeat here.

They say a picture paints a thousand words and in this comparison I’d say more like a million…

Tea Party Protest in Boston

Occupy Wall Street protesters - the look on the faces says a lot

Tea Party Signs

Occupy Wall Street signs

Massive Tea Party Crowds - No Arrests or Violence

Large gathering of 99%ers = more than 700 arrests

So this is what's wrong with America? To be despised and hated?

NOT This...

Or this...

Don't worry about this....

and certainly not this...when ya gotta go, ya gotta go...

Yep, those 99%ers are just like the Tea Party members.  No difference whatsoever.  It’s obvious!
