It’s not quite the ringing endorsement they were hoping for but Occupy Wall Street protesters on Monday receive the support of the American Nazi Party, more commonly referred to as the ANP.
Also known as the National Socialist Party the group released the following statement on their website:
“[Occupy Wall Street] is TAYLOR [sic] MADE for National Socialists,” while they urge their members to “Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the ‘JEW BANKER’ influence—DON’T wear anything marking you as an ‘evil racist’—and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD!”
The ANP isn’t the first communist movement to back Occupy Wall Street, the Communist Party USA has also backed protesters and during a board member speech on Saturday in Chicago they told the crowd:
“I bring greetings and solidarity from the Communist Party. We are here, marching side-by-side. We’ll sleep here. We’ll be with this movement ’til the very—’til we make all the changes that we know we have to make.”
While many protesters don’t agree with the parties overall message they did meet the show of support with hoots and applause.
I don’t believe in the overall messages that are routinely being delivered by the ANP or the Communist Party USA however it’s still nice to see so many groups of varying political backgrounds joining in the movement to raise awareness about economic distrust around the world.
Leave us a message with the political party you support and let us know if you also support the Occupy Wall Street protests that are now taking place around the world.
