The 99%? Aw, Hell No!
Here’s a telling video from “Occupy Atlanta.” It’s so weird on every level. First, there’s the bizarre practice of having the crowd repeat everything the speaker says. It’s like a cult — or the Borg. As the video description says: ”People abandoned their individuality and liberty to be absorbed into a hypnotizing collective.” They weren’t even allowed to vote — instead, they had to express their “feelings” with “hand signs,” which the predictably unmanly leader was then free to interpret how he saw fit.
Second, there’s the fact that Congressman John Lewis came to speak to the group — and the “consensus” (as interpreted by the leader) was that he should just go away. Now just imagine what the media would have reported if this had been a Tea Party. Third, around the 8:30 mark, someone dissents. Immediately the leader shouts him down by repeatedly yelling “Mic check! Mic check!” as the well-programmed crowd again parrots his every word.
Watch the whole thing and prepare to be creeped out. There is no way in hell that these people represent any more than a fraction of a percent of the U.S. population, let alone 99%. LOL.
