Some of you may be wondering: â??whatâ??s all this Occupy Wall Street god-damn hippy mumbo jumbo?! Is that the same as all those rowdy Tea partyers?Â What in tarnation is going on in American politics? *gasp* Commies!!â?
Well, you wouldnâ??t be the only one in the dark about these political movements.Â From people Iâ??ve talked to (granted, mostly college students) most donâ??t really have a clear idea of these movementsâ?? specific purposes either.
Those who do, however, seem pretty riled up. Protesters come from a variety of different backgrounds and have an even wider variety of reasons propelling them.
Both of these movements have been widely criticized for their ambiguity. Â So it isnâ??t purely the corruptness of the media thatâ??s to blame for peopleâ??s ignorance of these issuesâ?¦ Â Â Â [via]
