Michael Moore was on Countdown With Keith Olbermann where he expressed the belief that the Occupy Wall Street protest is going to grow, and he encouraged the American people to take it nationwide.
Keith Olbermann asked Moore about Occupy Wall Street and he said,
I can’t speak for why the networks have not covered this. This is really the very first down on Wall Street in the financial district the very first attempt since the crash of 08 to take a real stand, and it’s been powerful, and I gotta believe that even though it may only number in the hundreds right now, this is going to grow, not only on Wall Street, but in communities all over America.
And I would encourage people watching this show to think about, okay you can’t make it to New York City, but there’s a branch of Chase Bank in your town. There’s a branch of Bank Of America, and there’s nothing preventing you from organizing a demonstration outside that branch with signs, with possibly even civil disobedience to make your voices heard. They think they’re going to get away with this. These people stole the pension funds of the American public. Who stole their money, who stole the future of our kids and grandkids. They’re kleptomaniacs, and they think they are going to get away with it. They have taken our democracy and formed it into a kleptocracy, and if we don’t stand up. If we don’t have our voices heard, believe me they’re not done yet
