The Occupy Wall Street protests continue as over 700 ne’er-do-wells were arrested Saturday on New York’s Brooklyn Bridge. As the mainstream media continues its romantic coverage of the vague protests, one is reminded of all the outlandish and patently false characterizations of Tea Party protests. Tea Party events have been labeled racist, violent, frightening and angry by the MSM and part-time pundits like Janeane Garofalo. Tea Party protesters have a reputation for leaving their protest grounds cleaner than when they left it. By comparison, the Wisconsin union crowd left millions of dollars in damages during their occumpation of the capital. The Occupy Wall Street crowd doesn’t seem to be much more hygenical. But you decide for yourself. Below is a small collection of pictures chronicling both protest groups. Occupy Wall Street photos are on the left, Tea Party on the right (of course!). Which protest would you rather bring your children to? You be the judge.
