Everyday that Occupy Wall Street continues more and more lobbyist, corporate giants and wrong headed politicians reveal just how in bed they are with each other. It also reveals how para military the police have become.
And, it reveals that we the American populous in acting out with civil disobedience are treated in the same fashion that the advocates and protesters were during the civil rights marches, riots and even the Vietnam peace march’s were treated. With unprovoked acts of brutality by the police, corporate support of black ops to infiltrate and undermine the protesters.
This is a clear examples of police brutality in the modern era of a “civil” society. Long gone are the years of fire hoses and dogs. Today, unprovoked police pepper spray seated protesters. Just to prepare them for arrest.
The protesters only response is a chant “shame on you”

However, in 2011, we now have major corporations completely running the government. Making sure that every elected official is in their pocket and under their thumb. Corporations who our elected officials stated were too big too fail. That said failure had nothing to do with the economic value of those companies, it had everything to do with those too big to fail companies running the US government. For they are the man behind the curtain.
Through corporations, the Koch brothers, Americans for Prosperity, the Tea Party, K Street and various members of the Bush administration we now live in an America that has diminished our rights, destroyed the middle class and made propaganda the number one product Americans produce.
Occupy Wall Street encompasses more than the protesters it is the voice of every single middle class American. They are the outrage of Ohio and Wisconsin. They are exposing the complete corruption of America. They are exposing the the very comfortable relationships between lobbyist and the GOP to undermine their cause. Chris Hayes recently exposed
Lobbying Firm’s Memo Spells Out Plan to Undermine Occupy Wall Street.
A well-known Washington lobbying firm with links to the financial industry has proposed an $850,000 plan to take on Occupy Wall Street and politicians who might express sympathy for the protests, according to a memo obtained by the MSNBC program “Up w/ Chris Hayes.”
The proposal was written on the letterhead of the lobbying firm Clark Lytle Geduldig & Cranford and addressed to one of CLGC’s clients, the American Bankers Association.
It is not surprising that two key figures in this memo and the lobbying firm are former Boehner staffers. In their memo to the American Bankers Association they plan to attack states that Obama carried in the last election and Sherrod Brown’s re-election in Ohio.
As Chris stated this is just one plan that we know of. The media has talked a lot about the so called trouble and illegal behavior at the occupy camps but is this also part of the right and lobbyist disinformation tactics. I think so. We must not dismiss the value of the occupy protesters for they are the middle class. Like us they are the 99%.
Unlike the Tea Party who got their support and money from the Koch brothers and corporations, the Occupy Wall Street movement has received their support from the middle class. The people they represent.
