The right wing Propaganda-machine/blogosphere has started to jump into the fray. From World Net Daily and from The Blaze. Not entirely sure who has been using the “days of rage” language in conjunction with #occupywallstreet, but it sure sounds really scary and terroristy, right? Ooh, and read the comments on WND if you feel like losing some faith in humanity today.

Our laws and our system are the result of a history of conflict between nations, peoples and classes, however this occupation is not a destructive act; such as, the recent English riots or a Global military campaign but, this is a constructive act. We may hate Wall Street and perhaps even the Stock Exchange building itself; however, people live in New York City. New York City, like Buffalo,...
#OCCUPYWALLSTREET Goes Global - Adbusters →
Inspired by the visceral potential of the Wall Street occupation, the Indignados of Spain just sent us word that on September 17th they too will set up camp outside the Madrid Stock Exchange. The surprise announcement, that their #TOMALABOLSA will join your #OCCUPYWALLSTREET, may embolden other cities as well.

On September 17, Wall Street will be occupied.

But if we have the cunning to come up with a deceptively simple Trojan Horse demand …...

Starting September 17, the publishers of Adbusters want 20,000 people take over Wall Street for months, until their demands are met.

Something is wrong. We all know it. We all see it. We are subjected day after day, month after month to displays of absurdities and betrayals. We are subjected to a set of rules and regulations of governments and corporations which we had no say in the creation of. We are subjected to the whims of those who hold power, those who live in a world different from ours. A world where the worst...

Have we all just given up? What are we waiting for? Forget about the 20% who support the Tea Party — we are the other 80%! This decline will only end when we demand it. And not through an online petition or a tweet. We are going to have to turn the TV and the computer and the video games off and get out in the streets (like they’ve done in Wisconsin). Some of you need to run for...
