Bill Maher Is Right About The Occupy Movement.
Hey. Occupiers. Pay attention before you loose all your momentum. I know there’s a lot of apprehension about putting candidates in office, but it’s clear that even the politicians who claim to be down with Occupy are still just politicians and are only as loyal as long as an idea, position or movement stays popular. Fair weather fans, so to speak. As Bill said “we need some intractable far left folks who will peruse an agenda to bring the country back to the left. Just in terms of perception the left is getting killed these days because they don’t have the propaganda juggernaut that the right has (Fox News, talk radio, newspapers, etc etc). We can’t wait for things to reflect our views: culture, politicians, media. The only logical answer is to be active in these areas. It’s time to go legit. Raise some money, start canvasing, elect good people. Parks ain’t cuttin’ it.
