Kristol: ‘Occupy Wall Street’ is a Marxist term for ‘taking over’
In Fox News’ latest attack on the Occupy Wall Street, Fox News Sunday regular panelist Bill Kristol felt the movement’s name resembled a Marxist term.
“The whole notion ‘Occupy Wall Street,’ that’s not a sort of democratic movement of ‘Let’s participate in the political process,’” Kristol said. “The whole term Occupy is a Marxist term for ‘taking over’ these pieces of public or private property, like it or not, these are our demands. If I were a liberal, I would be deeply worried that it would damage liberalism.”
He added: “This is fundamentally anti-Democratic. This is not an attempt to effect elections, it’s not law-abiding.”
To the dismay of Kirstol and Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, Occupy Wall Street not only isn’t damaging liberalism, but is twice as popular as the tea party.
