Hey fam,

Our studio is observing Rosh Hashanah today. So no show. Tune in next week. In the mean time check out a blog post by Co-host Subhash Kateel on Organizing Upgrade 

It is in response to a piece a friend Sally Kohn wrote about the Occupy Wall Street Protests.

I just finished reading Sally Kohn’s piece in the American Prospect titled “Follow No Leader” that outlines her criticism of the Occupy Wall Street (for a good explanation of the action check out this Voices from the Frontline  ).  Now, I know Sally to be thoughtful and articulate.  I am especially proud of her courage being in the Fox News studios going head to head with the Michelle Malkin’s of the world.  That respect made her article even more curious to me.  In the article she basically reduces the Occupy Wall Street protests to “making noise for its own sake,” and cites a New York Times writer, Ginia Bellafante, who accuses Occupy Wall Street of “pantomiming (maybe I am dumb, but I had to look that word up to make sure I knew what it meant) progressivism rather than practicing it.” Sally even seems to cosign the Times writers’ characterization of the protestors as hippies and anarchists.
