Thread: Occupy Wall Street/Tea party in the media. I dont understand it.

  1. Default Occupy Wall Street/Tea party in the media. I dont understand it.

    Im not a huge fan of either the tea party or occupy wall street but i have to say the way we look at these movements shows something truly perverse about our media and intellectuals. I know the coverage is biased even in America but in Europe the tea partiers are treated like they're mentally ill at best while the occupiers are these selfless heroes who sacrifice their own well being for the common good. But what is it that these people actually want?

    The occupy wall street movement consists of the richest middle class in the world. And what is their demand? They want more money. Why? Because Bill Gates has more than they do. They feel entitled to Bill Gates money simply because they share a country with him.

    The tea partiers say they dont want anything from the government. They dont want any of Bill Gates money simply because it contradicts their idea of liberty. They dont want to finance anyone elses handouts but most of them would be in the receiving end if the government did decide to redistribute wealth in America.

    How is it possible that the tea parties are given this type of treatment while the occupiers are celebrated as heroes? Again as i said, theres plenty of faults in the tea party movement but if i had to decide which group of people has the moral highground i wouldnt hesitate to say its the tea partiers.

    The vast majority of the media in the U.S. is very liberal. They will cover up and lie to make sure what people see on network television and read in the big city newspapers is favorable to the left, always, and negative to the right, always.

    It's just thw way it is.

    You basically nailed it. Because some people have more the occupiers think it isn't fair so they want the government to take from the rich and give it to them for nothing.

    Tea party people made a movement more based in fiscal policy. Like their beliefs about how government should spend money or not, they are totally different from the occupier thugs.

    The Occupiers are against Wall Street corruption... they don't care about Bill Gates or his money.

    They believe anyone with money is corrupted that's their problem. They will not ever consider there is an innocent executive who deserves his salary.

    Is simple. How the rich became rich? Do you think that they became rich with clean tactics? The biggest example of it is Bill Gates. He became rich with dirty tricks, menacing the competence...

    Forcing the computer manufacturers to install its operating system... With this tricks its operating system became mainstream. Mainly when it was always the worst. From MS-DOS to Windows there was better operating systems than the ones made of Microsoft.

    So, yes. Bill Gates is a good example of depictable rich.

    No rich has become without dirty business. That is impossible, or almost. The only exceptions that I can think today are Google and some other technology related companies. In the rest the clean methods are more than discussable.

    Because they don't deserve that salary. Why an executive is more important than an engineer? He isn't.

    To become executive or similar you must be psicopath.

    The elite media has a long history of siding with the weak. They are a large part of what is wrong with this country. The elite media is pushing the weak down our throats. They exploit peoples’ emotions to make money.

    Right now the elite media is crusading for the weak president. Forget about the many homeless people and the 43 million people on food stamps. Forget about the millions of people out of work. Forget about the millions of people losing their homes. Forget about the massive debt we are in. Forget about companies going bankrupt. HOLD THE PRESSES! The elite media is going to save the irresponsible inexperienced moron of a president from the big bad republicans.

    Keep watching the elite media and your brain will rot.

    Let me guess.... You're not rich?

    Thats exactly the kind of hateful crap that you wouldnt allow me to say if it was about any other grp of people.

    But you didnt even answer my question. What it is that they want from the 1%? An apology?
