RIP OCCUPY WALL STREET (2011-2011)

MILBANK: “Two months ago, there was hope that the Occupy Wall Street movement and its offshoots could be the start of political counterweight to the Tea Party. But that never happened, and any last chance of it ended when New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg closed the encampment in lower Manhattan.

 Nationwide, the movement lost its idealistic roots amid reports of accidental deaths, drug overdoses and scattered violence. In Washington over the weekend, 31 demonstrators in McPherson Square, a previously peaceful encampment, were arrested in a standoff with police.

In nearby Freedom Plaza, there are fewer tents than there were earlier in fall — and it wasn’t exactly booming then.

Occupy Wall Street now rests with its other Democrat, Soros-backed astroturf predecessors, the Coffee Party and the No Labels Party.

You won’t be missed and don’t worry…we’ll clean up after you.
