Capitalist creates fake Occupy Wall Street website

The “invisible hand” of capitalism may be showing Occupy Wall Street protesters its middle finger.

occupyparty

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.

Thanks, AJC! Now we know which site to avoid at all costs!

Also, Occupy Wall Street organizers need to send a C&D letter to the creator of occupyparty.org.

In my day, if we protested, it meant something, these protesters are wearing clothes, sleeping in tents and using bull horns produced by the very corporations they claim to be protesting…is it corporations they hate or just anyone with money? I don’t think even they know what to protest. Toilet paper and deodorant companies aren’t even being affected by this small gathering of ugly people.

Old Geezer makes the lamest, most ignorant comment of the day. Thank you. What are they supposed to be, naked Luddites? Enjoy your mediocrity. Hopefully, you’re old enough that your kind will die out soon.

The protesters seem to be protesting for the sake of protesting. Ignorant children, clueless tools. I heard one duderhead interviewed this morning on the news and she did not even know what she was protesting. I have taken dumps with higher IQs than these douche bags.

Edward, I am sure “Old Geezer’s ” mediocrity would be a number of steps up for you.
