Remember the Democratic Party’s embrace of Occupy Wall Street? Now the AP tells us it never happened.
Now that Occupy Wall Street has descended into disruption and violence and public opinion has turned solidly against it, the AP is trying to drop into the memory hole the Democratic Party’s fulsome support for the Occupy movement. Here’s the beginning of Beth Fouthy’s Orwellian November 17 AP article, which is linked and discussed by John Nolte at Big Journalism:
Democrats see minefield in Occupy protests“There’s little benefit to Democrats in opening their arms wide to a scruffy group…” Hah. The Democrats and the AP may feel that way now, but they sure didn’t feel that way during the previous two months, when the entire Democratic Party proudly and eagerly married itself to the occupiers, seeing the Occupy movement as the ticket to reversing recent leftist setbacks and putting the left back in the saddle in domestic and even international politics.
