A Little Well-Placed Rage
November 21, 2011
I love a little well-placed rage. Keith Olberman is a master of this.
In this video Olberman goes off on Mayor Bloomberg of New York City, and his hypocrisy and idiotic handling of Occupy Wall Street:
“Bloomberg… enabled the arrest of over 700 protestors on the Brooklyn Bridge, and yet two months later, froze 20 square miles of New York City in gridlock traffic over two days so somebody could film another goddamn Batman movie on the 59th Street Bridge. Leading to the inescapable conclusion that if you wanna tie up a little traffic during a protest for equality and freedom from corporate domination on a bridge in New York City, you will be arrested, but if you wanna tie up ALL the traffic during a goddamned movie shoot for the financial benefit of corporate domination, the city of New York will embrace you and give you tax breaks!”
Here’s an interesting fact: Bloomberg is the 12th richest man in America.
“Our history as a country [is] founded by and invigorated by – and RE-invigorated by – protest.”
Money talks… but we’re tired of our government listening to money while ignoring its citizens.
Finally, Americans are finding their voice.
