Ten Minutes of Occupy Atlanta Acting Like Jerks

It went viral days ago, but only now do I see the excruciating, Ricky Gervais-worthy video of Occupy Atlanta activists denying Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga. some time to speak at their rally, and being denied for vague reasons of the general assembly needing an action-oriented, every-man-a-kind focus.


Beyond parody. Some early Tea Parties refused to allow Republicans to speak, but they didn't make the decisions in such agonizing ways.
