Mockery can't marginalize Occupy the World

You can tell the 99% movement is making an impact by the conservatives and their media lapdogs increasingly desperate attempts to discredit Occupy Wall Street. They frantically dig for any marginally related development to cast doubt on its authencity. They tsk, tsk about the lack of a coherent message. But for all their desperate scrambling to minimize it, the movement grows. Here was a protest in Madrid the other day:

It's a global movement now. They say on that one day, there were protests in 900 cities around the world. Further, I'm told at least 1,500 cities just in the US have held protests.

The cons are desperate to make this a fringe movement. As I said before, the messages in every different protest may be mixed but its underlying message couldn't be more clear. All over the world, the people are finally rising up against the oligarchs and shouting, "We're mad as hell, and we're not going to take it anymore." Yeah, pretty much just like in the movie...

Having no coherent message. Now isn't that special? Listen to the candidates debate - idiots and liars calling each other idiots and liars and denying what they just said and just did.

The only thing coherent is the dishonesty -- OK, maybe the hate too.

Good point Fogg. Don't think I've seen anyone else point that out.

Even CNN did what's usually left to Snopes and other on-line debunkers and pointed out the "less than truthful" proclamations the liar's chorus bellowed at each other.

Of course they're not about truth in the first place are they, with one commenter telling me that Romney is more manly than I am and therefore I'm not a true American for questioning him.

So if we can call insanity a consistent message, I'll give that to them, otherwise they're simply screaming what comes to them at the moment regardless of what they said in the previous moment and regardless of any decency - and yes consistency.
