Via Alexander Higgins. Bloomberg is a lying, elitist scum and should be ridiculed for this. Look at how he shifts the blame:
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg criticized the Occupy Wall Street protests today, suggesting their days be numbered and said the Wall Street banks deserve our support.
In a bout of Orwellian doublespeak, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg used his radio address today to hand out criticism against the Occupy Wall Street movement, calling the policies of the protestors misguided.
In an effort to sway the opinion of the public, he represented the movement as one that is protesting against the low income earners on Wall Street making between $40,000 – $50,000 a year.
Everyone knows these protests aren’t against the mailman or the IT guy working at Goldman Sachs. They’re against the super elite who use the bottomless money they have plundered and pillaged from the mailman and the IT guy to buy off our politicians and destroy the global economy.
He went on to say that while people have a right to protest, people on the street also have the right to get to work unmolested. Clearly, a baseless claim but none the less the kind of rhetoric that politicians will use to rouse anti-protestor sentiment.
This kind of manipulation of public opinion is almost as Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly picking a protestor to interview who has strong communist views. Of course there will be a nut ball or two at any protest. So Fox found a guy to go on nationwide television and say he wanted to tear down capitalism and replace it with communism.
There are no protestors down here at Liberty Square trying molesting people trying to get to work. Communists are the people powering this movement. Finding a communists or two at Liberty Park is no different from finding a white supremacists or two at a Tea Party Rally.
The protestors are pushing for a real, people powered democracy. Not communism. Not Socialism. But reform of the corrupt system that continues to suck the wealth and prosperity out of the middle class and hand it over to the rich.
People, it is time to turn off the TV. We can not allow the campaign of lies and manipulation by the Wall Street owned corporate media to dissuade us from our cause of bringing substantive change to our corrupt political system. It is time to get our politician’s out of the pockets of their corporate overlords.
