If you listen to the media, you would think the protests were spontaneous angry people wanting change, but that is further than the truth. It has been organized by people from SEIU such as Stephen Lerner, and ACORN from the beginning.
In the latest protest related to Occupy Wall Street, a Seattle group of protestors had a confrontation with police at a hotel where a CEO of JP Morgan was speaking. There are more and more protests going violent on a daily basis, and some protesters who actually want a peaceful protest are being left out. Compared to places like Greece, it is quite peaceful, but for how much longer. I keep thinking what the media would do if the Tea Party had done violent protests like this, there would be calls for military action and arrests from the president on down. How hypocritical.

Violence in Oakland, protesters shot with rubber bullets. Comparing Oakland as similar to Egypt is both humorous, ridiculous, and scarey. And the media continue the comparison.
