If you, like many Americans, are confused about the specifications of Occupy Wall Street in comparison to the Tea Party Movement, the ‘Faceoff: Occupy Wall Street vs. Tea Party Movement’ infographic is a great, simple explanation.
The commonalties the two share are actually fairly vast, especially considering that politically they are on opposite ends of the political spectrum. Whether you agree with either movement, both, or only one, there is simply no denying that the issues they have highlighted have become forefront and center in the general political debate.
One of the most interesting parts of the graph is its evaluation of the stereotypes accorded to both with the actual information they have on these protesters. Ultimately, the Occupy Wall Street movement seems to be reaching more people who feel similarly, given the public support shown in this infographic, but both remain a relevant and ongoing source of discussion.
