(and he's not alone)
For weeks now, I have not had time to post. I haven't had much time for anything internet.....and so I miss reading my favorite blogs as well. I hope to rectify that soon. But, this morning I was reading an article on the Occupy Wall Street scene and was so taken with a response comment made by another reader, that I just had to take the time to share it with you.
I am not a member of the Tea Party movement and I do not consider myself a Conservative or Liberal. I would have to go with Independent, if I were to label myself. I have been known to vote both sides of the fence. I vote the best man, not the party.
I get my news from the Wall Street Journal and several internet news sites, all three major network news channels (NBC, CBS, ABC) as well as the cable FOX, CNN and MSNBC News. I do this so as to read / hear from all sides....to gain a broader view and truer understanding of what is going on out there.
I understand the anger and disappointment of the OWS. I support their right to gather and peacefully protest, but I believe their anger is aimed in the wrong direction. I worry about where this protest is going and how the left is distorting the truth, and manipulating and tearing this country apart.
Below is a posted response by athrun77 on an internet site. I agree with most he wrote. What do you think?
"I have come to the conclusion that the left always accuses their enemies of being exactly what they are. We were told repeatedly that the tea party and conservatives were racist, prejudiced and religious bigots. The mainstream media can produce no video or audio to prove it. The one guy they find at 8/28 is denounced and yet occupy wall street has endorsements from the KKK, the Black panthers, Add busters, American Muslim association, Cair, Code pink and every other anti-semetic and bigoted organization plus we have the audio and video to prove it repeatedly but supposedly we're racist. We supposedly shove our religious beliefs of morality down homosexuals throats, yet they'er the ones who boycott, deface property, violently attack individuals and burn religious texts and force indoctrination in our schools. We are supposedly violent in our protests despite no evidence and no arrests in over 800 known events, yet they have 900 arrested in NY alone, parade with heads on pikes and openly send violent threats to people and mob individual houses and families like the pack of wild animals they are. We are accused of spreading lies and breaking laws to pump poison into minority communities yet their supporters openly talk of violence, re-education camps and guillotines not based on fair trial by law or jury but by bigoted social justice (another word for no justice) which is nothing but tyranny of the group or mob. We are called Nazis and yet the only difference between them and the Brown shirts is that the uniform is now purple, red, green or no hygiene. Our events are orchestrated by special interests and,corporate cronyism and a political party despite no evidence on any financial or political backing whatsoever on any known site yet they can amass special interests, unions , media outlets, and every political organization and corporate left hack or celebrity in the nation to support them. We could only afford 2-3 days to take off from work to go to conservative events like 8/ 28 expenses paid from our own pockets. They apparently have enough funding to camp out for almost 2 months in public squares receive from undisclosed sources up to an estimated 300 million a week in supplies and pay bystanders 600 dollars a week to hold a sign and that is supposedly grass roots and spontaneous."
Thank you for stopping by
