You've got to admire the "ethics" of the Occupy Wall Street crowd. All that looking out for the humble 99 percent while going after the evil 1 percent must be exhausting.
Thank goodness, then, for the 1.5 percenters who are actually in charge of the Occupy movement and put in the work to bring about the sort of change that's so needed in this country.
A couple of Occupiers were doing just that recently when "the man" nabbed them and charged them with making bombs and hoarding weapons.
Morgan Gliedman and Aaron Greene were busted at their Greenwich Village apartment with an explosive compound called HMTD, a flare launcher, shotgun, high-capacity magazines, notebooks containing formulas for explosives, instructions for converting semiautomatic guns to full auto, along with papers in a cover titled "The Terrorist Encyclopedia."
Gliedman is the daughter of one of New York's most prominent doctors and grew up on Park Avenue. Her mother is a successful Realtor. She graduated from the private Dalton School in 2002.
Her boyfriend Greene, the sperm donor for her ninth-month bun in the oven, is a graduate of Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and some sort of big shot in Occupy, according to the New York Post. He has a list of priors including assault and weapon possession.
Surprisingly, it wasn't Greene who attracted the attention of police, who came to the couple's apartment to find Gliedman on suspicion of credit card theft.
The mainstream media have mostly ignored the story, while the further-left media are trying to cover up Occupy's connection to the alleged bombmakers.
The Huffington Post, where probably half the writing staff is involved with Occupy, actually wrote of the couple's arrest, "No political writings were discovered, and Kelly said the investigation was continuing into whether the couple had any larger plans or ties to any radical groups. They didn't show up on any watch lists."
"No political writings." Just a little tome called "The Terrorist Encyclopedia."
"Larger plans." Um, bomb?
"Ties to any radical group." I dunno, maybe ... Occupy Wall Street?
Occupy didn't even rate a mention in the Huff-n-Puff story, although both suspects were named in the headline.
Greene's attorney, Lisa Pelosi, said the couple also had drug problems.
To paraphrase Captain Renault in "Casablanca," I'm shocked, shocked to find there is terrorist activity going on in Occupy's establishment.I'm sure somehow it will turn out to be the Tea Party's fault.
