Writing in Forbes magazine, Dave Serchuk thinks those young folk protesting on Wall Street are pretty cool:
I also applaud these Millenials, because they haven’t backed down as The Man tries to club them into submission. From what I’ve seen of these folks, having mentored several at Forbes, they are smart, polite, hard-working, and tenacious.
Tenacious, yeah. But smart? Polite? Hard-working? Good punch lines.
More apt descriptive terms are provided by The New York Post: “Sex, drugs and hiding from the law at Wall Street protests”:
Zuccotti Park smelled like an open sewer — with people urinating and defecating in public.
And some couples have taken advantage of the free condoms distributed by organizers to do the nasty in full view of other protesters.
“It kinda makes me think of what Woodstock must have been like,” said one protester, Sarah, 19 from the Upper West Side.
“I haven’t hooked up with any guys … but one of my friends did have sex in a tarp with a guy last night.”
But, of course, the real danger here is those racist tea partiers (who love Herman Cain!) They’re actually polite, leave the protest area cleaner than when they arrived, don’t engage in public defecation or sex, and aren’t high on narcotics. What’s this country coming to?
