Occupy Wall Street Gains Momentum

It would appear that since my last article, the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement is gaining a lot more momentum and a bit more coverage in the mainstream media. This is hopefully a step in the right direction after so much clamor for a voice. The Occupy Wall Street protesters have been going strong since September 17 and this is the first real news coverage of them I have seen, aside from when I stumbled upon their cause.

Now, at this point I’ve mentioned how one-sided the coverage of OWS has been, especially compared to the Tea Party movement. It is interesting to see the difference in reaction to the OWS protests. As of right now I have read figures that estimate about 1000 protesters have been arrested in total from the OWS protests. This is not including the brutality that has been imposed upon the protesters, particularly by one Anthony Bologna.

This is kind of where I go into rant mode against this ignorant coward. Not only does this guy pepper spay two girls behind a wire fence for no particular reason, the coward doesn’t even stay around to makes sure ‘order was restored’ as is the typical lingo for situations like this.

Now, I can hear what some of you are thinking, maybe this was just a heat of the moment thing. That’s an interesting theory, except, he did it again. There you go, to protect and serve. But it’s not like the right-wingers get away with stuff like this. No, they get can get away with much worse! Like bringing a gun to a presidential rally. Yup, bringing guns to political events even has the Tea Party stamp of approval! I’m gonna to go out on a limb and say I’m sensing some favoritism.
