Occupy Wall Street Is Not an Altruistic Movement
Occupiers should stop pretending they know whats best for everybody else.

Mike Riggs | November 16, 2011

Of all the chants and slogans to come out of Occupy Wall Street, none stinks more than We are doing this for you.

We're doing this for you...love us back, protesters in New York chanted at the NYPD last month. Were doing this for you! Po-lice are the nine-ty nine percent!

Were doing it for your generation, Occupy Portland protesters told a little girl as she wandered through the crowd interviewing people on Nov. 1.

What a load of shit - and the comments are no better than those one finds on Yahoo boards.
