Trust Fund Pitt Pledges to Divest All Corporate Income
Okay, I lied. WILLIAM RIVERS PITT never made any pledge to divest his Trust Fund of any income derived from corporate sources. However, like a lot of other leftwing Trust Fund Kids, Pitt continues to slam the EVIL corporations from the comfort of his computer chair. The big difference between Pitt and the protesting Trust Fund Kids is that Pitt TALKS a good tale but as to actually attending these protests...Eh! He can't be bothered. Here is the latest momentous event recorded by Pitt on his Facebook Page:
Humongous red-tailed hawk is roosting in a tree right outside my window. I've had apartments smaller than that thing. Just awesome.
Meanwhile within the space of just a week, Pitt posted a total of FOUR DUmmie threads about the importance of these anti-corporate protests and how OTHER folks (meaning not Pitt) should attend them. Take a look at Pitt's conclusion to his ironically named Onward to Wall Street:
The onus is not on these protesters. They're there, doing it. The onus is on us to pile in with them, to make the crowds and the central message unavoidable and un-ignorable. The goal of the Wall Street protest is to get the rock rolling down the hill. That's done; the rest is up to us.
It turns out that the only thing that Pitt piled in the past few days was a couch to watch sports on the tube. Meanwhile right there in Boston there was a dopey #occupy protest downtown but Pitt, after urging his readers about the importance of attending, couldn't be bothered to do the same.
However, if Pitt won't attend these anti-corporate protests, we can bring him into it whether he likes it or not. I urge folks out there, especially in the Boston area, to show up with a table and sign exactly like the one above: "Sign the William Rivers Pitt Pledge to Divest Your Trust Funds of any Income Derived from Corporate Sources." Of course, such a sign would attract a lot of attention and curiosity but don't expect any Trust Fund Kids to actually sign that pledge. Best of all would be if TV reporters interview you. Yeah, just imagine Pitt reclining in his comfy couch idly sucking down cigarettes and munching on Cheetos and suddenly he sees that sign on the news. We are talking thermonuclear mental explosion here.
Meanwhile, Pitt, give my regards to that humongous Bolshevik red-tailed hawk roosting outside your window.
