Ezra Dulis, from Ataaaaack Waaaaaaaatch fame, went down to Times Square and talked to some “occupiers” recently, and you’d be surprised at what he found. He found two clean cut kids who actually had a coherent conversation with him. It was kind of impressive. He even talked them into admitting that corporations aren’t the “evil death factories” that most occupiers have portrayed them to be. You’ll have to see it to believe it. (Profanity warning… there is one “F-Bomb” in the beginning of the video)
One thing that I noticed is that these kids were too clean to be living in tents. They were really friendly too. If I had to guess, they’re not “true” occupiers, but they’re part time occupiers, or maybe just “occupier sympathizers”. Still, it was pretty impressive that they were willing to be so cordial with Ezra (a very conservative man with a video camera).
What do you guys think? Was it refreshing to see some kids admit that corporations aren’t “pure evil”? It’s not as if they said they “love” corporations, but it could be a step in the right direction. Or… do you think these kids weren’t even hardcore enough to be considered “real” occupiers, and that this (almost) pleasant exchange doesn’t even count?

Ok… Let us know what you think about the protestors in this video. …and my sister, if you want to, but keep it classy.
