Which has/had more influence: Occupy Wall Street or the Tea Party?
The tea party shut down the government. Occupy Wall Street members camped outside.
Because the Koch Brothers PAY to make sure the Tea Party is heard.
The Occupy movement is just average folk with not enough cash to buy airtime.
They weren't heard because they didn't have a message. They were all over the place with that. The movement was like a hippy love in. People wanted to take them serious but in the end couldn't.
Tea party. I'm sorry the occupy Wall Street movement didn't work out better but the messages weren't clear enough to carry out the mission.
I know the Tea Party is still around. Is occupy even still a thing?
I heard they are regrouping under I different name and rebranding and would be back in the spring.
Will occupy still be anti corporate? Wonder how they feel about the healthcare pass Obama gave corporations. Will they be pro Snowdon? I bet they flip flop, too
And wonder what they think of the soaring corporate profits under Obama.
Ed Schultz asked this question when he still had a show on MSNBC. Only 3% of his audience said "Tea Party" I was part of that 3% and my answer still has not changed. I don't know of ANY "Occupy" candidates at any level, nor am I aware of any policy changes they are responsable for.
That tells us something about MSNBC.
And tell fan. LOL
