The protest against Wall Street came from a rant by Rick Santelli on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. It was a FOX/RNC/Neocon propaganda play from the beginning.
Those of us that were actual Ron Paul supporters in 2007 held a fundraiser on the anniversary of the original Tea Party. One has nothing to do with the other.
I went to the first "Tea Party" Rally in my city - it was like being at an RNC convention without the formality. People had on Rush Limbaugh shirts and Glenn Beck "9/12" crap. Ron Paul people were practically booed off the stage. The whole point of the propaganda was to distract people from the fact that Obama had already been picked to win - both times. If it wasn't obvious to you - remember in '08 when they selected the retarded Alaska lady as a running mate - that should have been the obvious give-away.
"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
