Borelli: Radical Free Reign at Occupy Wall Street Diverts Protesters From Real Problem

Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli notes that the Occupy Wall Street effort fails to police itself in the way that the Tea Party movement has dealt with radical supporters. This allows the violent and anti-Semitic fringe elements within the Occupy Wall Street effort to play an increasingly prominent role and creates a peril for politicians willing to align with them. Deneen further suggests that anger over the current economic situation is misdirected away from the Obama Administration’s detrimental crony capitalism and job-killing regulatory agenda.
