It turns out not only the 99% cares about the Occupy movement. Recently the Huffington post ran a picture of a Mercedes-Benz convertible parked on Washington, D.C.’s streets with “OCCUPY” on its license plate. The car is worth more than $50,000 which has typically been seen as the antithesis of the Occupy movement, or has it?
The DCist reports that the man who owns the car, a patent attorney, understands the contradiction between his choice in automobile and the protesters’ goals, but “admires the movement.”
“Of course, I realized that putting those tags on a Mercedes would be a huge contradiction, but I thought that it might attract attention (voila!) to the fact that there are actually 1-percent sympathizers for the 99 percent,” the man stated to DCist.
