SHOCKER: Bernie Sanders is Favorite Candidate OF OCCUPY WALL STREET ACTIVISTS
In a development that should surprise absolutely no one, the filthy communists of the Occupy Wall Street movement are organizing support for Bernie Sanders.
If you’re OK with degenerates crapping on police cars, Bernie is your guy.
Occupy Wall Street rises up for Sanders
The forces of Occupy Wall Street, splintered and faded in the aftermath of their 2011 demonstrations, are getting the band back together to boost Bernie Sanders ahead of next week’s critical New York primary.
Nearly five years since Occupy was evicted from Zuccotti Park, blocks from the New York Stock Exchange in lower Manhattan, a coalition of organizers, labor leaders and progressive activists who lined up under the banner of “the 99 percent” are renewing their efforts in pursuit of a more traditional cause: Getting voters to the polls on April 19.
That begins with traditional canvassing, but will extend to what is expected to be a large pro-Sanders, Occupy-inspired march on Saturday in Manhattan.
“This is the place where the message of income inequality resonated across the country and across the world — it’s where it really began,” said “People for Bernie” co-founder and Occupy activist Winnie Wong. “He’s bringing it back home.”
In Sanders and in his campaign, the more mainstream elements of Occupy Wall Street have found an ideological ally. The Vermont senator’s laser focus on economic issues are a big draw, local organizers said, but they also delight in his affection for the shoe-leather activism of past generations.
Vote for Bernie Sanders if you want America to look like Zuccotti Park after the OWS activists were forced out.
Watch out for the piles of feces.
