As I watched the Occupy Wall Street movement cause chaos in the streets of Chicago I thought of the story of Frankenstein. The Democrats have created a monster and lost control of it. I am sure the Democrats thought OWS would be a counterpart to the Tea Party Movement. Nancy Pelosi and even President Obama talked about it as if it was a grassroots, spontaneous movement. It was supposed to be the average citizen rising up against the greed of Wall Street and the 1%. Bill O’Reilly says he will prove beginning tonight that big left money is behind it.
OWS has anarchists, anti-capitalists, anti-war activists willing to perpetuate violence to get their views heard and seen by the TV cameras. They are nothing like the Tea Party. President Obama seemed embarassed in public by the chaos. He tried to explain it away but I suspect he secretly agrees with them and their tactics. But it must be clear now to the Democrats that the movement has gotten away from them.
Occupy Wall Street’s next stop is Charlotte and the Democratic National Convention. Good luck with that! Anybody remember 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention and that chaos? The anti-war movement became anti-establishment and were just as angry at the Democrats as Republicans. Most of those demonstrators and sympathizers were Democrats just like the OWS today. Remember Democrats, the Republican won that year. They created this monster and now they can’t control it just like Dr Frankenstein.
