Occupy has more than a woman problem

What kind of movement calls female supporters “white bitches”?  And what type of women take that to be a term of endearment?

Via The Atlantic, The Occupy Movement’s Women Problem:

I have not been particularly sympathetic to the activities of Occupy protests around the country, as the message often is one of self-wallowing pity, misplaced blame, and in some cases, vile rhetoric.  The conduct often has been violent.

When I heard that NY City police had cleared out Zuccotti Park overnight, I couldn’t wait to see the NY Post headline.  I was not disappointed:

What do you think of my headline? Do I have what it takes to be a headline writer for the NY Post?

The Occupy rallies are devolving into the equivalent of the prison yard, as reflected in multiple incidents around the country of rape and killing, and this story about the slashing of a San Francisco police officer with a type of shiv commonly used by prison gangs (h/t reader):

I, alongside my friends from the libertarian and Republican clubs, went to the OccupyCornell weekly meeting yesterday afternoon. It was a tremendous departure from the “real” OccupyWallStreet and, thus, far more tolerable. However, it was still pretty pathetic. Here’s why:

What are these guys protesting? “The Ivy to Wall Street Pipeline.”

The one chart that explodes the myth of U.S. income inequality (h/t @CharlieSykes). The short explanation is that individual income inequality has not expanded greatly, but since high earning people tend to group together in family units, family income inequality has expanded:

You know things are bad when the Occupy Wall Street movement cannot get more than a handful of people to Occupy Boulder, Colorado in nice weather.

Primary Jewish #OWS Organizer – Lack of Structure At OWS Allows Non-Anti-Semites To Participate

The conservative movement in America may have been had. #OWS is easy to attack, but the right’s demonization of #OWS, even if successful, may be playing into Obama’s hands by failing to address the real reason why the Democrats and their special interest allies have cultivated this movement.
