10 OccupyWallStreet Conspiracy Theories

George Soros

George Soros

You knew this kind of fluff story couldn’t be far off … Lyz Lenz of TruTV smears #OWS with a conspiracy theory brush:

Conspiracy theories have surrounded the Occupy Wall Street movement since the moment protesters hit the ground. From ties to George Soros to cries of censorship and anti-Semitism, the Occupy Wall Street movement seems to have done more to fuel rumors than it has to end corporate greed. But they have some conspiracy theories of their own…

1. Funded by George Soros
How did Occupy Wall Street form so quickly and so efficiently? Is liberal money man George Soros behind the protests? Soros says he merely sympathizes with protesters.

2. Hidden Anti-Semites?
Occupy Wall Street is a movement ostensibly focused on ousting corporate greed, but there [sic] allegations of anti-Semitism more akin to racial warfare than class warfare. Supporters, however, say that any anti-Semitism is occurring on the fringe and that the OWS movement is “fundamentally Haimish.” Certainly you won’t see any in the photos…

    Yesterday on WCBS radio in NYC, Gov Christie of NJ, attempting to clarify his statement comparing the Tea Party and OWS said that he did not mean to say they were supporting the same ideals.  He went on to say that OWS is angry with the current administration for not fulfilling campaign promises, and that’s why they were protesting.  Where did he get that idea other than from out of his enormous backside?

    Yeah, when a “liberal movement” pops up, George Soros is clearly the cheif financier of it.

      Yes, why would anyone suspect a financial billionaire who gives money to left leaning causes of giving money to yet another left leaning cause? I don’t understand why people act like this is such a big conspiracy. Are you shocked if we find that Rupert Murdoch gave money to the Tea Partiers?

    Number ten is ‘Police Brutality’. 

    Following the events in Oakland, along with the near ceaseless harassment reported on in New York, I find it hysterical that could be labeled a conspiracy theory.

    “2. Hidden Anti-Semites?… Certainly you won’t see any in the photos…” There’s plenty of videos of such protesters on youtube, but generally when they interview people about it they say how it’s not representative of 99%ers. I wouldn’t blame the movement, but crazy people will flock to these things and if you don’t keep them on the fringe they’ll grow and become more of a problem.

    9 is also interesting for noting the donation of bank money to the police.
