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.

Al Sharpton is a racist moron. I agree with the other poster who said stock up on food, water, guns, ammo, and supplies because some bad **** will be going down soon. It will be 10 times worse than Greece.

Everyone is misinterpreting what the 99% represents. It means 99% of the participants are utter morons. Now that Sharpton is getting involved they'll have to rename it the 99.5% movement.

Al Sharpton is a douchebag!! This "Occupy Wall Street" is nothing more than a bunch of losers with nothing to do. HOW ABOUT GO OUT AND CREATE A JOB OR JUST GET ONE! THE JOBS ARE THERE THEY ARE TOO LAZY TO DO THE WORK! "A useful idiot” is one who unwittingly aids the Socialist movement.

Al Sharpton is a character but he is alright in my book. I think he is right on point, and hope he is able to bring the community together.

Sharpton, Pelosi, Reid & Obama; ever think that you are who everyone is protesting? If any white republican spoke like this aimed at black people it would be on the news. Racist hog.

@ porp. You nailed it. Only real job Pres Obama ever
had was community organizer, whatever that is. These
liberal jerks are being so manipulated they really can
not explain what it is they want. I call it a movement in
search of a cause! Unions are sensing an opening too,
at least four are out in the street "organizing." I want to
know, where are these people using a bathroom?

This is class warfare - idiots that don't work as hard as others, ride the welfare train and think everyone owes them and should pay all of the taxes. The old Henny Penny story - let someone else do all the work, gather the ingredients and bake the bread then when it's done they expect to eat it!

I totally understand the anger at Wall St. even though I don't think most people understand the specifics of the derivative, mortgage backed securities, and CDO problems. It's just most of what the protesters are saying are tropes and their lack of specificity and clear policies scares me. The song "Who wants to be a millionaire" was released in 1956. A USD million in 1956 money is worth about $7930503.74 in 2010 if inflation adjusted. So when they talk about millionaires it just doesn't seem all that targeted. And the 1% millionaires figure ("we're in the 99%") is wrong. There are around 3.4% dollar millionaires in the US (far, far, more if you include asset millionaires). In simple terms: I think they are right to go after Wall St. but fail to distinguish between rich and mega rich, can't do maths, and shout slogans.
