Sessions: OWS Similar to ‘Marxist,’ ‘Anarchist’ Movements

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) compared the Occupy Wall Street protesters to foreign socialists after a press conference today. ”We’ve seen those kind of protesters all over the world, many of them are Marxist, many of them are anarchist,” he said. “It’s an odd group.”

He also said the protesters have nothing like “the basic American legitimacy the Tea Party has.”

The Wall Street protests, he added, if not socialist, are confused: ”Some of them who are complaining sound like conservatives, it’s sort of surprising. They’re complaining about some of the things conservatives, tea-party people, are complaining about.”
