Imagine our surprise to discover the so-called “spontaneous” Occupy Wall Street protests were a carefully orchestrated series of temper tantrums conceived and executed by far-left agitators. Well, now that the designed purpose of getting Obama re-elected has been achieved the truth can be told. These more or les swere a bunch of spoiled, angry trustafarians lashing out.
It seems those Occupy Wall Streeters were a lot closer to the 1 percent than they would like to admit.
A new study of the OWS movement in New York found that many of the protesters were highly educated and not nearly as down on their luck as they portrayed.
A third of protesters in the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York lived in households earning more than $100,000 and more than two- thirds were employed professionals, according to the study from CUNY’s Joseph A. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies.
The study also showed the movement was mostly organized by experienced political operatives and nearly all of those involved — 76 percent — were college educated.
Of those, half had graduate degrees and among those with bachelor’s degrees, and 28 percent had attended elite universities.
“Occupy Wall Street was not a spontaneous eruption but rather an action carefully planned by committed activists,” the study concluded.
Additionally, the study found that the protesters were also disproportionately men — 55 percent — and many were white.
A bunch of angry white men, unlike the more diverse Tea Party. Funny how nobody actually has done a study on the Tea Party since that would demolish the media narrative.
They actually churned out a 51-page study, clearly demonstrating these folks have way too much free time on their hands.
