ALERT: Americans for Prosperity to Stand Up to Occupy Wall Street Extremists at “Failing Agenda” Rally in Midtown!

***Thursday, September 20 at 10AM***

AFP Activists will Descend on Rockefeller Center to Combat Occupy Wall Street Radicals and Oppose Obama’s Failing Agenda!

NEW YORK, NY – Americans for Prosperity activists from all over the tri-state area will gather en masse in Midtown Manhattan tomorrow morning to stand up to Occupy Wall Street extremists and call attention to President Obama’s failing economic agenda.

“The Occupy Wall Street crowd is nothing but a fringe element of malcontents bent on mayhem and destruction,” slammed AFP New Jersey state director Steve Lonegan. “These are people who despise free enterprise. They are not attacking Wall Street. They are attacking the very freedoms that everyday Americans cherish to pursue their own dreams and succeed.”

“What the American people are really worried about is President Obama’s failing agenda,” said Lonegan. “They are worried about a failing agenda that is saddling future generations of Americans with trillions of dollars of debt and leaving them with a bleak future. They are worried about the economic destruction President Obama’s policies have had on the economy and on job creation.”

“It’s time that someone stood up to the Occupy Wall Street mob,” continued Lonegan. “Tomorrow, Americans for Prosperity activists from all over the tri-state area will do just that right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.”

Americans for Prosperity’s rally will be held from 10:00-10:30 a.m. right outside of Rockefeller Center as part of the group’s national Failing Agenda Bus Tour.
