Are the 1 percenters finally coming out to defend themselves against the self-described 99 percenters? Earlier today, we brought you information about an interesting counter-movement that some business owners are working on. Then, we came across a video that shows a different kind of response to the Occupiers.
An Occupy protester has captured footage of a man, who is described by the person who posted the video as "drunk." In the clip, the film's subject can be seen going ballistic on protesters. A description accompanying the video, which was posted by YouTube user H0wie99, reads:
While on my way to the subway from Zuccotti park, I ran into a drunk guy in a suit drinking out of a brown bag (which he smashes on the ground a few seconds in). This goes to show that those drunk on power and wealth tend to not make the best decisions, as he tries to provoke two men in their sixties.
Now, there's no way to be sure that this man is wealthy. Also, there's no way to confirm that he's a member of the so-called 1 percent. The only information the cameraman went on was that he was dressed in a suit and stood vehemently opposed to the Occupy movement.
The clip opens with the man cursing and yelling, saying, "I don't want to see this fu**ing sh*t," referring to the protest. It looks as though he grabbed signs out of Occupiers' hands and at one point toward the beginning clip it looks -- and sounds -- like he smashed something (perhaps this is the bottle referenced in the video's description?).
Predictably, the person taping the purported 1 percenter's outburst says, "The whole world is watching you," as the man screams incessantly for the Occupiers to "get the f**k out of here!"
At the end of the clip, the man walks away, but not without getting up close, aggressive and personal with the protesters. Watch the scene, below (caution: language):
