The man keeps repeating it, like a mantra: the Occupy movement is not a left/right issue. Maybe he needs to read some history that goes further back than Teddy Roosevelt, and includes the other side of the pond.
One begins to suspect that the MSNBC host is being handed a line by the White House.
It wouldn't be the first time, but this time it's particularly galling because Ratigan pretends to be on the side of the 99.
I'd like him to explain to me how the existence of a numerical expression 99/1 can represent anything but class warfare, which by definition pits the left (the 99) against the right (the 1 percenters). Calling it a top/bottom issue show's his total lack of ideological culture, on par with that of most of his audience.
Will someone with more clout than me call him on this, or is he going to get away with it?
