Clueless Former KC Fed Chairman Herman Cain Calls Occupy Wall Street Protesters Anti-American: "It's A Conspiracy Designed To Help Obama"
(By The Daily Bail) --
Herman Cain is at it again, spreading misinformation and lies, after blaming protesters just last week, saying it is their fault if they are unemployed.
Cain is repeatedly mistaken in this clip from yesterday's Face The Nation. He has no idea how these protests got started, so he just assumes it was 'the unions' even though there wasn't a union representative to be found for the first 15 days. If you've been following the protests since months before they began, as we have, you know it was ANONYMOUS, and their anger at the Federal Reserve and stealth Wall Street bailouts that laid the groundwork for the rebellion.

We demand that the primary dealers within the Federal Reserve banking system be broken up and held accountable for rigging markets and destroying the global economy, effective immediately. As a first sign of good faith, we demand Ben Bernanke step down as Federal Reserve chairman. Until our demands are met and a rule of law is restored, we will engage in a relentless campaign of non-violent, peaceful, civil disobedience.”
Next mistake from Cain, he claims that by protesting Wall Street, they are protesting the essence of capitalism in America. Wrong again. They are protesting that Wall Street was bailed out, in other words, that capitalism was discarded by Bush, Obama, Paulson, Bernanke, Pelosi, Reid and Geithner in order to save millionaires and billionaires...MORE...LINK
