Al Sharpton

Occupy Wall Street

Is a 'Good Thing'

10/10/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1010_al_sharpton_launch_2Al Sharpton is on his way to "Occupy Wall Street" in NYC right now -- and he tells TMZ, it's about time people started rising against corporate greed in America.

Al landed in LaGuardia moments ago -- and according to the Rev, he's so moved by the 99% ... he might just camp out on Wall Street himself.

As for what Al thinks of Republican Presidential hopeful Herman Cain -- it involves racism and pizza ... check out the clip.

Don't care much for Al, but the more the better and it might get more coverage since the joblessness and poverty affects the blacks predominately more than the whites. Give em hell !!

Just wait until true austerity comes to the U.S. and the 45 million who are on food stamps take to the streets. Buy yourselves some land in the country and stock up on canned food because, make no mistake, it's coming.

Al Sharpton questioned whether Herman Cain was "authentically black". I question whether Al Sharpton's perm is authentically black.

This proves that the Wall Street Protest are a bad idea if Al Sharpton approves of it. These people should be protesting the White House!

The Greediest man in New York is telling us, "It's about time people started rising against corporate greed in America."
Next thing you'll see is Jesse Jackson telling people it's a sin to procreate with women that you are not your wives.

THE "MAINSTREAM" DEMOCRAT OPERATIVES (CORPORATE INTERESTS) ARE TRYING TO INFILTRATE AND DESTROY THIS MOVEMENT LIKE THE REPUBLICAN OPERATIVES (CORPORATE INTERESTS) DID TO THE TEA PARTY.

DONT FALL FOR IT. DEMOCRAT VS. REPUBLICAN. LEFT VS. RIGHT. ITS ALL A FALSE CHOICE GIVEN TO YOU BY (CORPORATE INTERESTS) SO THEY CAN CONTINUE LINING THEIR FAT POCKETS.

It is so funny how each political party and special interest is now trying to hijack OWS. Just like the neo-cons hijacked the Tea Party. This is all about an insane foreign and monetary policy. Stop the corporatism that has invaded our government. Shrink the size of the Federal government. End the Federal Reserve. Vote for Ron Paul.
