Does The Far Left Represent 99% Of People?

Surely I can't be the only one who finds it ridiculous that the far left are engaging in anti capitalism protests claiming to represent 99% of the population. In reality, the poeple doing this are in the fringes likely representing 5% - 15% of the population. Listen guys, if you want to set up permanent protests in major cities that's your business, but can you please stop claiming to represent 99% of society? Of course now every special interest group is trying to hitch their trailer to the gravy train to raise money.

When the Tea Party started, the left went nutty with homophobic jokes and ridicule. Now they are doing something eerily similar to those they scorned and expect respect or even reverence? Did you just get jealous and want your own party? That's fine, just stop saying that you are the 99% because you're not.


  1. When people have no rational basis for an argument, they typically resort to gross hyperbole and just plain making $hit up. These nutbar protesters are a perfect example.

  2. these fools just need to look around the world and realize our standard of living, social safety net, etc puts them in the 1%.


  3. in the u.s. 47% pay no federal income tax. i think over 20% have a net gain from the feds. the 1% these idiots are talking about pay approximately 38% of federal taxes. these ows fools are just that, fools who have become useful idiots. old white guy.

  4. The Occupying movement claims to represent the lower 99% of income earners, hence the slogan. Since I know that some who are found in the lower 99% of earners favour policies that support the current income distribution and would be happy to see the middle and lower classes hit even harder, it's obvious that the Occupiers don't represent everybody in the 99%.

    IMO of course

  5. They dont represent me.I chose my representative this year in an election.He is residing at 24 sussex drive in Ottawa.
