[Video Link] (I recommend skipping to the 2 minute mark so you don't have to watch her taking a cab ride into the city.) Former Saturday Night Live regular Victoria Jackson does a fine job of not responding to the people she interviews at Occupy Wall Street. Instead, she sticks to her script of questions and claims. Here are some of my favorites:
"Right now, 50% of people pay taxes and 50% do not. So if everyone gets free stuff who is going to pay for it?"
"Oprah Winfrey had nothing and now she's a billionaire. That's capitalism!"
"If you want everyone to be equal, how are you going to make them equal in good looks and smart brains? Everyone's not created equal."
"I'm in the Tea Party. We're not violent. We don't even leave litter!"
"How come Van Jones is promoting violence for you guys? You know Van Jones is a communist."
"So you don't think Obama is stirring up racial and class warfare and its straight out of Rules for Radicals written by Saul Alinsky?"
"The real issue is, Obama is a Marxist and he's stirring up racial divide and class warfare on purpose!"
I think Jackson deserves to be congratulated for publishing this video, because the people she interviews (particularly the second guy that she spends about 10 minutes with) obliterate every claim and loaded question she delivers. Plus, I like her because she plays the ukulele.
