- Wall Street Protests Have ‘Tea Party’ Potential, Professor Says (By Esmé E. Deprez, Washington Post) The coalition of thousands of anti- Wall Street protesters in New York and cities across the U.S. has the potential to grow into the “Tea Party of the Left,” said Brayden King, who’s written on social and political movements at Northwestern University.
- Anti-Wall Street Protests Grow in New York as Other Cities Join (By Esmé E. Deprez, Bloomberg Businessweek) “It’s very much evocative of Woodstock and all of the demonstrations against the Vietnam War and for civil rights,” said Richard Koral, 62, an attorney from Westchester County who joined hundreds of demonstrators yesterday in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park.
- Occupy Wall Street Could be Disaster for Democrats (Abe Greenwald, Commentary magazine - "Since its inception in 1945, and increasingly after it emerged as the flagship of neoconservatism in the 1970s…") With all these ill-suited messages and hypocritical messengers it’s easy to overlook the one timely half-truth among the Occupiers’ gripes: government and big business have grown entirely too close. I say half-truth because the protestors fail to understand that the road to change runs through Washington and not Wall Street.
