Maher Takes Occupy Movement to the Woodshed
Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 6, 2012
It is amusing watching the Left begin to eat their young. The latest episode included Real Time host Bill Maher attacking the Occupy Movement. On a one of his recent HBO shows, Maher said of the Occupiers:
“Let me ask you about another occupation, because this is – and you would be good on this too, panel, the occupation, the Occupy Wall Street, because similar to Afghanistan, when you occupy anything for too long people do get pissed off. And as I watch them on the news now I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich. Like, you know what – get a job. Only because, you know, the people who originally started, I think they went home and now it’s just these anarchist stragglers. And this is the problem when you, you know, when your movement involves sleeping over in the park. You wind up attracting the people who were sleeping over in the park anyway.”
“And I think that’s where we are now with the Occupy movement. They did a great job bringing the issue of income and equality to the fore, but now it’s just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution.”
Mr. Maher has once again shown how little strategic vision Progressives have. Initially, they were pleased to support the radicals in the Occupy Movement, as long as the riffraff attacked only conservatives. Joining Maher in support of the Movement were leaders of the Democratic Party including Obama and Pelosi. However, the Left can no longer control the monster they help create. With the Occupiers beginning to attack Democrats and getting too close to the swank apartments that wealthy Progressives live in, the Left now attempts to place the genie back in the bottle.
