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.

Well , haters and racists come in all colors and creeds; this should not surprize us by now. It is ironic that this B.Movement calls itself 'Occupy America'

Lets go a step further and call our country what IT IS namely OCCUPIED AMERICA. We have been invaded by a foreign nation who refuses to follow our laws, is laughing at USA for giving them OUR AMERICAN DREAM. ONE QUESTIion for HARVEY LIBERAL DEMOS*IT: HARVEY, IF SOMEONE KILLS YOUR DREAM CAN YOU KILL THEIR DREAM , legally of course.? You know, you've heard about laws and how to follow them RIGGGGGGHHHHHHTTTTT ?

There is something that some of you idiots must not understand if you are for this protest. Rich people already do pay more taxes than the ones out there bitching & complaining. If the tx rate is say 20%, tax 20% on the $25,000 you might make compared to the $1,000,000 they might make. They pay a hell of a lot more taxes than these people ever will. Everyone should have to pay the same rate. Whose fault is it if you're not making much money? no one but your own. Those people out there have started companies which has done nothing but helped give jobs back to people who need them. Get off of the welfare & hand outs people, most of it is coming from those big corporations pockets & you're going to complain about that too?

I agree with Chris, and am voting for Ron Paul. Too many jobs being sent overseas (full disclosure - including mine) and age discrimination is very prevalent. With so many people out of work, it does not make sense for large companies to pay huge salaries and bonuses, there are plenty of talented folks you can hire for a lot less money.

As if Sharpton wasn't the poster boy for race baiting and cheap shots. Everyone knows Soros, Moveon, Van Jones and the other progressively disgusting liberal leftists are behind the ridiculous protests which indeed if they are protesting corporate greed look no further than their own party. You have Pelosi who's husband owns Chicken of the Sea, then you have Van Jones who makes a huge amount of government chump change, Obama is no shrinking violet when it comes to capital, the Dems are just as wealthy they just pretend not to be. Bunch of losers that are so unhappy being American they are willing to do the ultimate by trying to rid this country of capitalism under the guise of civil rights. They are a bunch of elitist socialist ideologists who have one intention to take money from us and distribute to losers who refuse to work or must rely on the government for hand outs. No rose colored glasses here especially with the stinky likes of Sharpton who never mentions Tawatsky who accused the white devils of raping her and then recanting way too late. No one ever apologises if the guy is white.

I would have read this story, but once I got to "Al Sharpton", I rolled my eyes and went to bed.

I don't always agree with everything that Rev. Sharpton says but this time, "HE'S RIGHT ON THE MONEY"!!! NO ONE is immune to the ruthless "ADVERSITY" that is being heaped upon the American Worker by Corporate America. People from all races, ethnic backgrounds and economic levels are feeling as Rev. Sharpton so brilliantly called it "THE PAIN". The "Domino Effect" of kicking the American Worker/Consumer to the curb will come back to "BITE" Corporate America in the "AZZ"!!! Some of them even have the "UNMITIGATED GALL" to stand on balconies and drink champagne while people are protesting below on Wall Street but as I "live and breathe", many of those same people on those balconies will be joining the protesters below and WILL SCREAM THE LOUDEST!!! KARMA IS A MUTHA!!! JUST WAIT -- IT WON'T TAKE VERY LONG TO MANIFEST!!!

OMG, how terrible. A Black man that thinks people should actually EDUCATE themselves and pull themselves up from the gutter. Someone who doesn't believe that when you start flipping burgers at Mickey D's that you should be asking about their pension plan. Holy cow! He actually expects people to better themselves.

How dare he?!


DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT HERMAN CAIN GIVE A RAT ASS ABOUT YOU OR ME?????


HE'S JUST ANOTHER SELF - SERVING "JACKASS" THAT DON'T HAVE A 9-9-9 CLUE ABOUT ANYTHING!!!!


HE'S JUST A TALKING HEAD FOR THE "UNCLE TOM CLUB"!!!


TELLING THE CAUCASIAN PEOPLE EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR!!!


THAT THERE'S A FOOL BORN EVERY MINUTE!!!
