This is the fifth part of our five-part series on right-wing attacks against Occupy Wall Street. A stalwart ally of corporate America, the Religious Right claims that Occupy Wall Street violates the tenets of Christianity. Strategy Five: Claim Occupy Wall Street Is Anti-Christian The very same Religious Right organizations that lauded tea party activists for taking to the streets are now attacking the Occupy Wall Street movement for doing the same.

After pillorying activists in Occupy Wall Street as violent Communist bums, the Radical Right resorts to calling Occupy supporters anti-Semites.

In July, the magazine Adbusters called on readers to set up camp on Wall Street and push for “one simple demand – a presidential commission to separate money from politics,” and the Radical Right has been attacking Occupy Wall Street ever since.
