Occupy Wall Street Incident Report

One-Stop Source For Updates On The Antics Of Professor Warren’s Intellectual Offspring

BOSTON – Now that Professor Elizabeth Warren has taken credit for creating the “intellectual foundation” of the Occupy movement, the Massachusetts Republican Party is providing an “Occupy Wall Street Incident Report.”

New this week, the report will highlight supporting organizations of the Occupy movement. Not surprisingly, socialist regimes across the globe have all commented favorably on the protests, and today’s edition includes North Korea, Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei celebrating Occupy’s anti-capitalistic themes:

WSJ: “North Korea’s state news agency weighed in on the Occupy Wall Street protests Thursday, highlighting the ‘stern judgment’ of ‘millions of people’ against a capitalist system that ‘brings exploitation, oppression, unemployment and poverty to the popular masses.’ …”

“In the final few paragraphs, the report appears to start channeling Karl Marx in predicting the decline and ultimate fall of the ‘exploiting class’ under the weight of ‘the socio-class contradiction of capitalism.’

“‘The end of capitalism is one of inevitabilities of history,’ it signs off.”

The Guardian: “Iran’s supreme leader said on Wednesday that a wave of protests spreading from Wall Street to cities across the US reflected a serious crisis that would ultimately topple capitalism in America. …”

“Khamenei claimed capitalism in the west had reached a dead end and that ‘the world is at a historical turn’.”

Mother Jones: “Venezuela’s leftist leader threw his support behind the protesters during a televised palace meeting on Saturday, denouncing the ‘horrible repression’ of the American people. …”

“In his long, thuggish political career, Chavez has successfully cast himself as a populist, anti-imperialist crusader battling the purveyors of ‘savage capitalism’; so it’s no huge shock that the Venezuelan president would jump at a chance to further highlight the consequences of capitalist excess.”
