The Anti-Occupy MN?

Posted at 3:00 PM on October 11, 2011 by Paul Tosto

MPR News blogger Bob Collins this afternoon highlights an organized anti-Occupy Wall Street social networking effort called. "We Are the 53%."

Writes Collins:

The site was started by Erick Erickson, and refers to studies showing the number of people who do not pay federal income tax.

The Occupy groups have a tumblr blog too: We are the 99%:

This is how we discuss issues in 2011.

Check out Collins and his NewsCut blog.
