You’ll be able to laugh at the hypocrisy of this story with greater ease if you first look at a couple of pictures of what “Occupy Oakland” did recently to Wells Fargo bank:

Recently “Occupy” had a vote on where to put their money. Guess where it got deposited?

Last week, one or more Occupy Oakland protesters smashed the windows of a Wells Fargo branch.

This week, the group’s general assembly agreed — in a near-unanimous vote Monday — to temporarily place $20,000 of the group’s money in an account at the country’s fourth-largest bank holding company, Wells Fargo Bank.

Whether the decision was an abandonment of the movement’s opposition to big banks or an ominous affirmation of the hold that big banks have on Americans, Twitter was ablaze with outrage last night, as news spread about the 162-8 vote, from which 16 people abstained.

“I am so disgusted right now. the hypocrisy of it all is just amazing,” wrote @GiveMeThatJuice.

“ARE YOU F—— SERIOUS?!,” wrote @graceface.

“I can see the ad now: ‘People’s money is so safe here at Wells Fargo, even our sworn enemies use us for their banking needs!’” wrote @davidcolburn.

Only eight “down twinkles” on a corporate bank decision?

Nice to see these people depositing money at a bank for a change though.

My day will be complete if Wells Fargo announces they’re going to keep the $20,000 to pay for the property damage.

    Good Lord, they're devolving in front of our very eyes.

    I take this as proof these idiots don`t think things through. In NY, the General Assembly placed nearly $500,000. in a bank and apparently NOT re-distributed to the individual Occupiers, you know, the way Socialism is supposed to work ?!

    Here they go again, money in the bank and away from its "rightful owners".

    I can`t decide which is thicker, the hypocrisy, the irony or occupier skulls ?!

    Is this a harbinger of intra-Occupier violence? I sure hope so.

    I'd say the skulls, by a long shot.

    The so-called Occupy groups are made up of Communists, idiots and lazy do-nothings looking for handouts instead of jobs! All you have to do is look at the group of supporters of this crap! It speaks volumes! Every wacko group imaginable is involved! Of course, Barry and Joe lend their support too!

    Entrusted to the leadership of the very competent firm Dewey Cheatum & Howe, the OWS gang blithely pursues their worthy objective of … uh, exactly *what* is their objective?

    I don't know, but if it's making fools of themselves they're succeeding beyond their wildest dreams.

    These idgits are blaming the Kleenex for their runny noses.

    No one with a brain should be taking them seriously. The planners behind the movement, YES ! The average occupier, NO !
