Remember the Coffee Party or No Labels? You don't? Both those movements quickly disappeared from the scene shortly after being heavily hyped in the mainstream media so you can be forgiven their absence from your memories. And now the latest liberal fad, Occupy Wall Street, seems to be fading fast as well. This is the claim made by liberal Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart in this obituary:
The massive protests over the weekend in Chicago during the NATO summit have folks wondering if that marked a resurgence of the Occupy Wall Street movement. But I have to tell you, if those demonstrations are any indicator, OWS is going nowhere fast.

you can’t manufacture a “spontaneous” movement
all you can do it fill it with idiots and paid clowns, which will make it look as ridiculous as it is
Actually, the radical left protesters have already been actively involved in the political process -- since 1968. And in all that time, they have managed to capture power in the White House, the Democrat Party, academia and the news media.
It's just that now it's become clear that radical leftists can do nothing with power except destroy and polarize. There's no "there" there, now that they have spent the last 40 years trying to take down America and proven remarkably successful in implementing their agenda.
OWS was pure astroturf, planned by Van Jones and funded by the SEIU. And as such, it fell apart because of its manufactured status-—they just couldn’t keep it going long, especially after the anarchists infiltrated it and started clashing with the very libs it was supposed to boost.
You can plainly see why the left has to FABRICATE, SPIN, IGNORE and DISTORT the truth. Once the truth is exposed it’s all over for these SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT FRAUDS. Climate Change, Eligibility, Fast and Furious, Zimmerman shooting. Just to name a few. The OCCUPY OUTHOUSE BOWEL MOVEMENT is just another in a long series of propaganda spin from these frauds that backfired bigtime. Come November we must politically crush these anti american democrats and boot their commie rear ends all the way to cuba.
One huge wasteful fraud scheme are these stupid and ugly wire barriers going up around the country.
that are accompanied with the infuriating reinvestment signs that have the Obama looking logo.
These barriers are supper ugly, they get ripped to shreds, are not nearly as good as the great long lasting Jersey Barriers . The wire Obama barriers are being put in places where like along I-675 in Atlanta, there is a huge median so there is ZERO need for them.
These barriers look like crap before and times 10 after they are struck. I bet the construction guys charged more for these cheap barriers than for the good old safer and longer lasting Jersey Barriers. I bet the owner that makes them has huge Democrat lobbying contributions. JMHO
That wasn't the image they were paying for... The boys at the New York Times wanted OWS to be the justification for their bias and one-sided reporting. Didn't happen. Conservatives caught OWS running employment ads in Craig'sList. Paid protesters - rent-a-mob... Totalitarian crap. The internet exposed them... Police car poopers didn't know the 'protest' was bought and paid for by liberal elites - so they came - and we're NOT welcome...
The MSM was using OWS to push the lies - one that bright attractive college types were on the march again - and liberal elites were once again 'cool'.
It was a lie.
It was like a bunch of 70 year old liberal men with long hair, a few million in 401K's - pitching themselves to 23 year old college girls. It doesn't get any creepier...
I thought OWS ended 6 months ago, when it got cold
