A lot of comparisons are being made between these two movements. And if one were to watch the media, it certainly looks like the fault lines are drawn, i.e.,:
Tea Party = loved by Fox News = conservative
Occupy Wall Street = treated with disdain by Fox News = liberal
But some are noting that the OSW movement really isn't hippies in a drum circle with union guys giving speeches. It seems to hae drawn libertarians as well.
What’s wrong's with the country? The unity of government and corporate power against people’s freedom and prosperity.
That's a message that both movements can rally behind.
