Open Thread: Jon Stewart Mocks Class Divisions at Occupy Wall Street

In case you haven't seen it yet, the Daily Show host Jon Stewart did a segment on the class divisions at Occupy Wall Street, while OWS protesters were supposedly protesting for a classless society. In the two months of occupation in Zuccotti Park, OWS had evolved a hierarchal system with an upper class living in one end of the park and a lower class living in the other end of the park.

Check out the segment after the break, and let us know your thoughts in the comments. 

 

 

The contradictions of the OWS protesters abound: one man is asked to share his iPad 2 with the rest of the protesters and refused, trying to draw a distinction between "private" and "personal" property, another man, in very politically correct terms, said the lower class end rarely contributed any real work or ideas to the protest, and an organizational group of leaders met in the Deutsche Bank lobby on Wall Street to have a quiet meeting space away from the park.

What do you think of the clip?
