One month ago, one of the biggest stories was the Occupy Wall Street movement. But that was one month ago. From violence and murder to rapes and disease, OWS has been shown as the blight that it truly is. And because of it, despite the shrieking from the Main Stream Media, Americans have rejected Occupy Wall Street and its socialistic values.
This is no more evident than OccupyWallStreet.org's website, which was created by the founders of the protests just before the "movement" went national. Their readership peaked in early October and has plummeted since. As the Web Information Company Alexa reports, OccupyWallStreet.org was one of the internet's 2,500 biggest sites just two months ago.
And yet, as they lose tens of thousands of hits, their ranking continues to fall. For the last month, the site was ranked only as the 6,613th biggest on the internet. But it gets much worse for OWS. That rank is only an average, including early in the month when the site was still peaking.
In fact, for the last week, their site is only the 14,149 biggest, and yesterday alone it was the 17,412th biggest. In comparison, the conservative site Free Republic was ranked as the 4,157th biggest site on the internet yesterday, and was the 4,372th biggest one month ago. This shows that the conservative website has held steady, or is growing. OccupyWallStreet.org, on the otherhand, it sinking like a stone:

The only reason why regular people came in the first place was to see a freak show.
I’m counting on them being back this Summer, just in time for the GOP convention. I hope the they get tied to the Dems. This will swing masses of independent voters over to the GOP.
I go there to check up on the latest “Hey Hey, Ho Ho” chants.
Think Chicago 1968. They are.
Hell man,obama,hoffa,dems created this so called movement.
“I hope the they get tied to the Dems.”
Won’t happen. Dems are majority of the MSM and they will make it look like another “protest” like clockwork.
I’ve said it before..whomever controls the media will win the election.
This whole thing was an Obama astro turfing operation from the get go. The Media was also working propagandists to coordinate OWS’s message with Obama’s and the Democrats.
Correct. The OWS nonsense was to coverup the high unemployment rate. Blame the banks instead of this brain-dead p-resident.
Well, the way it appears to me is that this goes back the Bible. You have a disgruntled being demanding that the Landowner “share the wealth” so to speak, and trying to install a victim-entitlement mentality into others, and much succeeding. And while the analogy is wanting due to the fact that those who “have” are not all benevolent, or are all rightful owners, and make restrictions based on what is best, yet in substance there is much that i see as analogous in your protests to the “original occupy movement”. If you will bear with me...
This original “occupy movement” was that of the “occupy the throne of God” initiative by a selfish being, who like many protesters i believe, basically have an animus against the idea of want striving lawfully for rewards, (2Tim. 2:5) but seek to “climb up some other way.” (Jn. 10:1) See Isaiah 14:12-14. As the devil would have God divest Himself of His rightful power and position (not out of selfishness but as that is what is right and best) , to “share the wealth” with one who selfishly lusts after such, so these souls are at war with the principles of gaining position, and demand those who are worthy of their reward relinquish it so that the indolent can live as a wealthy man, seeing everyone as a victim of the former.
In the Garden the devil sought to instill the same victim-entitlement mentality he evidences, working to convince Eve she was victimized due to the solitary restriction, and basically demanded that God “share the wealth,” that of Divine knowledge which innocence needed not was not best to have.
As in the 60’s, it largely seems there is a lust is for a Garden of Eden without God, in which no one has to work, or wear clothes, or where such commitments as marriage are required to enjoy sexual union, and other restraints against the sinful proclivity of fallen men.
Instead all just eat from the trees which grow food and whatever else is needed while smoking bongs (which also hang from trees). But in this case the government is as God, and provides all for these elite class, as earning things is unnecessary. And in essence much of the the protest today is actually against the failure of this ideology, of the government to provide what this fantasy demands, and thus louder demands are made, using the legitimate failures of capitalism to demand a socialist state, but whose elite rulers end of being worse than what they replaced.
As this is a rebellion against the principles of earning position and power, and of consequences for rejecting it, in which context mercy is mercy and is appreciated, then ultimately it is a rebellion against God.
The end of which is Hell, and its absence of anything positive and realization of the opposite, in contradistinction to those with God, who were redeemed by God/Christ on His expense and credit, on His blood and righteousness in God’s mercy; Not by rejecting that there are consequences for sin, but by God making reconciliation, and is given to those who repent and believe on Him, (Rom. 3:8-4:12) with a faith that effects love and works, and who will be recompensed with rewards according to their labor. (1Cor. 3) To the glory of God who gave His Son, and is still giving.
Did Bush control the media back in 2000? I think your premise is severely flawed.
“Ive said it before..whomever controls the media will win the election.”
No it’s not...ask how many times Yahoo or AP outlets report Holder and the Fast-Furious in the past week?
Look at my posts. How many times did I post? I went on a sabbatical from FR for many days to get off the media and find out the pulse of the population in this city. People I spoke with have never heard of the Holder fiasco. Only fanatical Freepers do.
The MSM will report 5% unemployment by summer to condition the people AGAIN like 2007. lemmings..
They were entertaining for a short period, but then they became tedious and redundant.
Great post! Satan goes back to the same playbook time after time to cause division and chaos.
I recall reading a thread that stated the DEMONrat convention was already preparing a “defense” from the OWS.
