I’m hoping it’s satire of the #OccupyWallstreet movement, since if it’s not…this person is quite honestly one of the most stupid and a bit, in his stupidy, evil.
I’ll let his time line speak for him.
Just take a few minutes to peruse these tweets. Get pissed off, rip out some hair, scream, or just laugh…that’s what I did.
Here are a few of my responses to him.
Now, keep in mind. This could be a parody so good that it could create and corollary to Poe’s Law. That it’s difficult to distinguish between parodies of extreme left socialists and its genuine proponents, since they both seem equally insane.
I certainly can’t tell. Unless the owner of the twitter account admits to being a parody of socialists, then I doubt anyone will be able to tell.
I also know that this person’s complete and utter stupidity (which can’t be cured) and ignorance (which could be cured…if they weren’t stupid) are not indicative of the entire movement. Unlike liberals I understand that one person in a group can be a racist/idiot/homophobe/religious fundamentalist/etc. without that meaning the entire group suffers from those shortcomings.
In fact I had a, slightly, more intelligent exchange on the Occupy Arkansas facebook page. More intelligent in that the main contributor seemed to at least understand math and had the ability to research to some degree, not more intelligent in any way that I would consider grand. After all, this is still a person that is “organizing” a protest against other people making money and creating jobs.
Then again, the person I was talking to still didn’t have much respect for freedom of speech, as he deleted all of my comments and blocked me from commenting on the page later that day. That’s why I can’t show you that exchange.
When it comes right down to it, I’ve conversed with enough of these people by this point and seen enough video and posters from the protest, that I can make an educated opinion of the movement as a whole.
And believe me, that opinion is very, very unflattering.
And that’s pretty much where my coverage of the Occupy Wallstreet protests will end, unless something big happens with it.
