Occupy Wall Street — from grassroots to Astro-turf

It may have begun as a genuine grassroots movement (and a rather lame one too boot) but the professional left is now taking it over and it is a true Astro-turf movement now.

Don’t believe me?  Listen and learn:

 

Yes friends, that’s the SEIU’s Stephen Lerner telling you what the plans are for the rest of the week.  For instance, notice that the Chicago protest is a planned protest ginned up by the SEIU (most likely with bussed in protesters).   Notice too that the visits to millionaire’s homes in NY City isn’t a “Occupy Wall Street” event per se, but one planned by the SEIU.

That’s Astro-turf in the political sense.

Look it up.
