The “invisible hand” of capitalism may be showing Occupy Wall Street protesters its middle finger.
NPR reports a “Seemingly Bogus Website Uses ‘Occupy Party’ Name To Sell Ads,” which isn’t sitting well with the anti-bank crowd.
The professional-looking site sports a patriotic blue theme, a picture of the U.S. Constitution and pictures of a smiling, good-looking group of non-radicals waving U.S. flags.
But the site has nothing to do with the nascent youth-inspired movement, and the domain — occupyparty.org — was registered from Australia.
A single video on the site shows a lively Wall Street protest. Other links simply refresh the single-page site.
But there are a few Google ads. I bet someone has already made more than $1 off this charade!
The real Occupy Wall Street site, under a “This Site Has Nothing To Do With Us,” simply says “We are not a political institution.”
Not yet, anyway.
