Young people making sense at the occupation

Remember how, a few days ago, we were saying that it was just a matter of time until people started showing up at the Wall Street occupation who could actually articulate why is that they’re angry, and what it is specifically that they’d like to have changed? Well, it’s apparently started to happen. I don’t know if the guy is this video is necessarily the person who will lead us to the promised land, but he sure as hell is a huge improvement upon the topless young women that we were seeing so much of in the press last week. This fellow’s name is Jesse LaGraca, and the guy with the camera talking with him is a FOX News producer. I’d love to know if any of the footage was actually aired, and, if so, what pieces they chose to show their viewers.

A transcript of their exchange can be found here.

    The hat tells me he’s a time traveler from the Civil War era. Maybe people were smarter then.

    People like this will never make it on the mainstream news. They don’t fit the narrative.

    And, K2, here’s a little of that mainstream “news” narrative that you were talking about.
