Neil Cavuto used his Common Sense editorial Monday (4/30/12) to smear the Occupy movement's May Day protests and paint the one percenters as the victimized social benefactors of the shiftless, hypocritical protesters.
Here's what Cavuto said:
"Get ready for a May Day to remember. Occupy Wall Street demonstrators certainly want to make it that way. They are planning marches all over the world tomorrow to commemorate what is already recognized as International Workers Day. But Occupiers aren't out to promote workers as much as to bash the folks who hire them, or as they see it, abuse them.
And they're going to make their point any way they can with anybody they can, and they're urging you to do the same any way "you" can. By skipping work or school to join the protest.... But here again I ask, protest what? The evil one per centers? Those sinister SOB's pocketing a few hundred grand? All of them or just some of them?
...I am willing to bet you that pathetic percentage will not include union bosses a lot of whom already make that dough, at least, or green company executives who make a lot more than that dough – and then some. Or lobbyists for such folks who advocate spending taxpayers money, and thereby earn that dough – and then some. Now, I think all of those folks are gonna get a pass. Here's who will not. Bank guys, once criticized for lending too much, now for not lending. And oil guys, once criticized for making too much, now for just breathing.
If you're for spending more spending of more taxpayer dough,good. If you are for reining in that spending of taxpayer dough, bad. If you're a boss who won't let your workers take the day off and protest, bad.
If you are a worker for said boss and leave your colleagues to pick up the slack... so you can take the day off and protest, good.
Because this is not about being fair, my friends. If it were, then you would just as much protest the half of all American households paying no income taxes at all than the evil greedy 1% paying the lion's share of taxes in all... These guys want to occupy streets. They have no interest in occupying something else – reality."
In fact,.Cavuto is the one not occupying reality. Look at www.occupywallst.org/article/may-day/ for what the protest is all about
