Occupy’s Celebrity One Percent Backers

While Occupy Wall Street protesters are busy marching to the homes of wealthy bankers and business owners, they have conveniently IGNORED the massive WEALTH of liberal celebrities like Michael Moore within their own ranks.

This type of hypocrisy is yet one more reason why Americans will be hard pressed to get behind the “occupy” movement. Do you agree?

The “Occupy Wall Street” movement has hit several huge road blocks. First it was the cold temperatures that sent many home. Next was the long-overdue decision to evacuate them out of public parks by liberal Democrat mayors. But another huge road block that’s emerging: their enormous hypocrisy on wealth.

      While I agree with you not all OWS supporters do not engage in class warfare, it is the sediment coming from the movement. In my humble opinion I firmly believe the problems we all face stem from government, and that’s where the protests should be placed.
