What’s the best way to deal with them?
“Feh” is my initial gut instinct–who cares? Let them beclown themselves. I commented in this vein over at Conservatives on Fire. Yeah, there are Soros and other Big Money connections–who cares? All the better if these substantively empty protests drain the left’s coffers.
Then I got around to reading a post over at FilmLadd. (Drat. I can’t remember who led me to FilmLadd, so I can’t do the via link.) In that post, Mr. Ehlinger makes an unsettling point:
“My hunch is that these protests aren’t about accomplishing anything right now except to flex their muscles, test out the police, and see which supporters “they” (the White House) can count on.
In short: #OccupyWallStreet is a dry run for November 2012.”
Hmm. That sounds bad . . . and yet plausible.
What do you think?
