The leftists may not have begun -- Arab Spring but it certainly of high tactic is woman's.
Are now running the show.
Occupy Wall Street completely run by the leftists don't look at the kids in the sleeping bags on the street there are merely the troops.
You -- -- generals that have orchestra orchestrated Occupy Wall Street.
The unions the far left.
This is a completely ideological movement an idea actually Occupy Wall Street was set up for one reason and one reason alone and it was in the pipeline for months before it actually.

OK his face isn't there it's Adolf Hitler not give -- 1940 in 1943.
-- Mike Gallagher any surprises that time magazine would put a left this movement on the front cover of their version of the year magazine.
Well I mean it's a provocative decision to be sure but but listen the attempt -- liberals make.
To sort of lift up this whole Occupy Movement.
And and and and tie it into the Tea Party movement is just disingenuous.
It's an -- suggests honest effort to try to excuse the illegal criminal behavior of the -- protesters and it's really laughable I mean frankly we're at a point now -- in our nation's.
The trajectory where everything that is good is -- as bad things that are -- portrayed his good.
And that's why people are so frustrated they're such a sense of Malays.
I -- these occupied filth and directors have been arrested in droves they have fought with cops they have sent dozens and dozens of police officers the hospital Sally knows all of this -- knows there's no anarchy exhibited at Tea Party rallies and so for time magazine to do this.
