The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday is the necessity to be willing make a judgment about situations and the individuals, groups, and organizations that support them. My parents were like many other parents, including myself; they told me that I should be careful about choosing friends because I would be judged by the words and behaviors of my friends.
For over a month Occupy Wall Street (OWS) and similar demonstrations have taken place in many cities across the
as well as like-minded ones in nations across the world. All kinds of problems have been reported about the demonstrators including public exposure of private parts, public masturbation, defecating on police cars, defecating and urinating in public, rape, drug sales, loss of jobs, problems in business establishments, etc. None of these behaviors are appropriate or wanted by most American citizens. Yet many public servants including President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and United States Representative Nancy Pelosi have supported them. In addition, other individuals and groups have announced their support by word or action: Communist Party USA; American Nazi Party; Ayatollah Khomeini, Supreme Leader of Iran; the government of US ; Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam; Hugo Chavez; Revolutionary Communist Party, Black Panthers, CAIR, Communist Party of China, Hezbollah, and many others.

When looking at the names of people and organizations who declare support for the demonstrators, I must judge the Occupy movement to be anti-American. For this reason, I am concerned about what these people will eventually do to our nation.
Zombieat pjmedia.com created a list of all the people and groups who support Occupy Wall Street.
"The Occupy Wall Street movement has received so much media coverage in recent weeks that it's
nearly impossible to keep abreast of all the developments. So many endorsements and criticisms coming from
all the developments. So many endorsements and criticisms coming from all directions enter the news cycle in
such rapid succession that even the most dedicated news junkies may have missed out on many of the pronounce-
ments. Supporters and detractors of OWS both might find it useful to have a handy all-inclusive list of who has
endorsed or embraced the protest.
"To satisfy that demand, we hereby present a list of groups, organizations, individuals and entities
that have expressed their support for, sponsorship of, or sympathy for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
"Note: All entries on this list are real and verified. Below each entry you will find a series of
source links documenting the support for OWS. We have striven in almost all cases to reference either first-
hand statements by the groups or individuals themselves, hosted on their own Web sites; or videos of the
people in question voicing their support for OWS at various Occupations; or news reports from reliable main-
stream networks; or articles by publications or organizations sympathetic to the Occupy movement; or
indisputable evidence, whatever the source. As a result, it cannot be claimed that these statements of support
were made up or distorted by detractors of the Occupy movement."
Zombie will continue to update the list as entries are verified. I suggest that you take a look at the Zombie list now and check back from time to time to see who gets added to it. The liberties and freedoms of Americans will depend on our being awake and alert to people and organizations behind demonstrations such as Occupy Wall Street and the statements of their supporters.
