Occupy Wall Street activist blames 'the Jews'

Sunday, October 09, 2011 |  Ryan Jones

It was only a matter of time before activists involved in the "Occupy Wall Street" economic demonstrations began to blame "the Jews" for America's financial woes.

A YouTube video making the rounds over the weekend showed one such activist holding up a sign that read "Hitler's Bankers - Wall St" and shouting, "The Jews control Wall Street!"

The few who dared to heckle the man were told to "go to Israel."

When a liberal blogger in the crowd questioned if the man was planted by the hated right-wing Fox News, the man replied forcefully, "A f*cking Jew made that up," before resuming his chant of "Freedom of speech, freedom of speech."

While the man was mocked by several passersby, Jewish blogger JoshuaPundit noted that the majority neither said nor did anything to put an end to the anti-Jewish hate speech.

Meanwhile, Democratic congressional leader Nancy Pelosi, who has led an effort to co-opt the Occupy Wall Street movement as part of the Democratic presidential campaign, had this to say of the demonstrators: "God bless them."
