FAIL. Far Left Calls For 20,000 to Protest Against Capitalism on Wall Street… Only 300 Show Up

It was supposed to be their Day of Rage… It ended up being their day of whining.

Despite the attention and support from leftist organizations and media outlets, the Day of Rage was a complete failure. The organizers called for 20,000 but only 300 showed up.
The New York Post reported:

Only about 300 protesters, mostly college kids and aging hippies, showed up near the Stock Exchange for yesterday’s anti-Wall Street rally — far fewer than the 20,000 that organizers of the so-called global “Day of Rage” had predicted.

Police barricades were put up to protect both the exchange and the iconic “Charging Bull” statue on Broadway. The barriers hardly needed.

Police said two members of the anemic crowd — which carried signs declaring “Wall Street is our Street” — were arrested after they tried to enter a Bank of America office at Broadway and Liberty streets wearing masks.

    The 2nd reason was there was a shortage of KY Jelly. It all landed in Pelosi’s district.

    Holy smoke. 300 idiots, converging on one spot. It’s like a black hole of stupidity.

    I’d like to hear even one of those imbeciles articulate, in any sort of intellectual fashion, exactly what they want Wall Street to do, and why.

    Failed policies leads to failed protests. Pushing somethng that isn’t working eventually comes to the disillusion and malaise that is Barry’s world. But the Democrats appear to still be “all in ” with the Marxist Moslem president.

    We should unleash these sublime minds upon the economy. Actually, they have had one in place for awhile in Greece and look at what a daunting task it is to cut the credit cards of that welfare state. And we too have another socialist community re-organizer elected to the presidency and look at the comparable job he is doing.

    I predict they will all be gone by the weeks end, or perhaps sooner if their tents and sleeping bags become infested with beg bugs. Sleeping on the dirty, filthy, dangerous streets of NYC is not something that one would ever want to do voluntarily.

    Proof again the left is in the minority.

    Americans love capitalism, its in our nature, it is who and what we are.

    This is why Obama is going down in flames come 2012.


    Powder is dry.


    odumbass should have called for a flash mob…then maybe more of his “people” would have showed up

    Wonder if these people have jobs….

  • DomesticGoddess

    Still, that’s 300 publicly urinating, trash producing, used condom and cig butts leaving slobs to clean up after. They will leave their “mark” in physical ways. UGH

    It must not be cool to be a filthy, rage-filled hippy any more.

    working for Soros?

    Jobs are for the rest of us productive fools, so we can support the smelly hippie non-workers while they lie in the streets and protest against productivity. Makes perfect sense, right?

  • SturJen

    There’s more than 300 homeless people in NYC. You mean ACORN didn’t offer them a jug of Wild Turkey and a bus ride to sit down at the Stock Exchange for a photo op?


  • lynched1

    A whole 300?

  • RL

    The little roach MMoore will make a movie out of these heroic 300…

    But I thought Bloomy said there was going to be riots in the streets…he must have meant “riot” as in a joke.
