There's a new never-before-seen Occupy Wall Street video making its rounds on YouTube where Fox News interviews Jesse La Greca, one of the more vocal members of the group.
According to media reports, the footage was shot on Wednesday for Greta van Susteren's show. However, the footage never made it to the air.
In the video, courtesy of Kyle Christopher of Occupy Wall Street's media team, LaGreca gave a pretty candid interview to Fox where he said the movement was a spontaneous one.
LeGreca told the interviewee that the discussion they are currently being sparked are discussions that should have happened in 2008 when the economy collapsed.
We basically patched a hole on the tire and said let the car keep rolling, LaGreca told the interviewer. Unfortunately it's fun to talk to the propaganda machine and the media especially conservative media networks such as yourself, because we find that we can't get conversations for the department of Justice's ongoing investigation of News Corporation, for which you are an employee. But we can certainly ask questions like you know, why are the poor engaging in class warfare? After 30 years of having our living standards decrease while the wealthiest 1 percent have had it better than ever. I think it's time for some maybe, I don't know, participation in our democracy that isn't funded by news cameras and gentlemen such as yourself.
The interviewer asked LaGreca if the present administration, President Barack Obama, has any criticism for the financial situation the nation is in. LaGreca said many people would like to see more economic justice or social justice.
You know, I find it really entertaining that people like to hold the Bill of Rights up while they're screaming at gay soldiers, but they just can't wrap their heads around the idea that a for-profit healthcare system doesn't work, LaGreca said. So, let's just look at it like this, if we want the President to do more, let's talk to him on a level that actually reaches people, instead of asking for his birth certificate and wasting time with total nonsense like Solyndra.
