Perhaps this is why Joe Lieberman--who said today on Laura Ingraham’s radio show that “The way this Occupy Wall Street is expressing itself is not reflective of the majority of people in our country”--is not embracing the protesters:

This is a protest aimed at bankers with a certain element who perversely want to blame the Jews for all of this country’s problems. This video—and others—make that much clear. But what’s odd is not that anti-Semitism and conspiracy theorists exists; it’s that Democratic politicians, who were once quick to embrace the movement, haven’t yet condemned the terrible elements of the protesters.
