Remember when the Democratic Party saw the Occupy movement as the Left’s equivalent of the Tea Party? That lasted until it became obvious that 1) Occupy wasn’t actually much of a movement, and 2) to the extent it existed, it was an embarrassment. Occupy is in the process of fading away, not with a bang but a whimper, and with more criminal prosecutions to its credit than normal citizens converted to the leftist cause. linkAnd people who hitched their wagons to this disgrace of a horse deserve any ridicule that comes their way.
Update: Oh look, these occupiers support child sex slavery! No, I'm not exaggerating, that's honestly genuinely truly what they're doing. Go look at the pictures of their signs. Remember, if you support the Occupy movement, these are the people with whom you're traveling.
