Michelle Malkin makes the claim that Occupy Wall Street is 99% white. It hurts my irony bone for someone on Fox News to criticize a social movement for being “99% white.” It hurts real bad.
According to Malkin:

“The protesters have taken to calling themselves the ‘99 percent’ in the country, labeling the capitalists they wish to remove from power the other ‘1 percent.’ When Occupy Wall Street activists call themselves the ‘99 percent,’ it turns out they mean 99 percent non-diverse (by their own politically correct measurements). It’s as pale out there at Camp Alinsky as MSNBC’s prime-time lineup or the New York Times editorial board. Not counting the cameos by Jesse Jackson and Cornel West, that is.”

Uh-huh… love the photo choice showing a rather diverse crowd, Fox Nation. I don’t need to debunk your claim since you, um, did it yourselves.
Bravo.

 Oh, Malkin, you race-baiting fact-mangler, you.

Anonymous Announces Next Target: The New York Stock Exchange
This past weekend, as #OccupyWallSt entered its third week in existence, the “hack-tivist” group Anonymous declared war on the New York Stock Exchange, threatening to “erase NYSE from the Internet.”
In a video, posted to the TheAnonMessage Youtube channel, the an electronic voice warns that, “On Oct. 10, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On Oct. 10, expect a day that will never, ever be forgotten.”
The threats come on the heels of another Anonymous declaration, although the earlier release was directed at the NYPD in retaliation for their mass arrests and reports of brutality against #OccupyWallSt protesters.
The new Anonymous video, and a transcript, are below


Greetings, institutions of the media.
We are Anonymous.
The events transpiring within Wall Street have caught our eye.
It seems that the government and federal agencies enjoy enforcing the law a little bit too much. They instate unjust laws as mindless automatons, blindly following orders with soulless precision.
We witness the government enforcing the laws that punish the 99 percent while allowing the 1 percent to escape justice, unharmed, for their crimes against the people.
We have observed this same government failing to enforce even the minimal legal restraints of Wall Street’s abuses. This government who has willingly ignored the greed at Wall Street has even bailed out the perpetrators that have caused our crisis.
We will not stand by and watch the system take over our way of life.
We the people shall stand against the government’s inaction.
We the people will not be witnesses to your corruption and ill-gotten profits.
We will not labor for your leisure.
We will not assist you in any way.
This is why we choose to declare our war against the New York Stock Exchange. We can no longer stay silent as the population is being exploited and forced to make sacrifices in the name of profit.
We will show the world that we are true to our word. On Oct. 10, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On Oct. 10, expect a day that will never, ever be forgotten.
Vox Populi, Vox Anon.
The Voice of The People is The Voice of Anonymous.
We are Legion. We are the 99 percent.
We do not forgive. We do not forget.
Wall Street: Expect us

Russell Simmons: I will bring hundreds of thousands to ‘Occupy Wall Street’
Hip hop magnate Russell Simmons said Thursday on MSNBC that he planned on joining the ongoing “Occupy Wall Street” in lower Manhattan.
Simmons, who has an estimated net-worth of $340 million, noted that all his employees paid more taxes than he did.
“Last time I got involved in a protest I brought a hundred thousand people there, for the Rockefeller Drug Laws,” he said. “And if I get involved really heavily in this one, we find the agenda and have a common ground… we can bring hundreds of thousands of people… small seeds are planted, but it could grow into something very big.”

Well shit yes!

100+ NYPD COPS REFUSE TO WORK AGAINST #OCCUPYWALLSTREET

Those are good cops. The others should find their spine and do the same thing. Cops protecting the scum in Wall Street are protecting those who are enslaving them and their own kids and grand kids.

Over 100 NYPD Officers Refuse to Work in Support of Occupy Wall Street Movement

The Occupy Wall Street movement issued the following statement on their website:
“Today we received unconfirmed reports that over one hundred blue collar police refused to come into work in solidarity with our movement. These numbers will grow. We are the 99 percent. You will not silence us.”

Just to show not all cops are slaves to their masters.

(Capital punishment) is … the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal’s deed, however calculated . . can be compared … For there to be an equivalence, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him and who, from that moment onward, had confined him at mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.
