    The Occupy Wall Street movement is almost five months old and although some vow not to abandon their posts throughout the country, HBO’s Bill Maher says the protest has ran its course.

    On Friday night’s airing of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Maher likened the Occupy movement to the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan, which according to him has gone on too long.

    “Let me ask about another occupation because this is, and you would be good on this, too, panel — the Occupy Wall Street,” Maher said. “Because similar to Afghanistan, when you occupy anything too long, people do get pissed off. And as I watch them on the news now, I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich, like you know what — get a job.”

    According to the “Real Time” host, the leftover protesters were the ones that have strayed from the message of the whole Occupy movement.

    “Only because the people who originally started, I think they went home, and now, I think it’s these anarchist stragglers,” he continued. “And this is the problem when your movement involves sleeping over in the park. You wind up attracting the people who were sleeping over in the park anyway. And I think that’s where we are now with the Occupy movement. They did a great job of bringing the issue of income inequality to the fore. But now it’s just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution.”

    The last part really summed up the Democrat/OWS Nutters here perfectly. :)

    The whole movement was brain-dead from day one with the occutards...I think he sees the damage and says these things to save face.

    Maher is and always will be an idiot.

    Perhaps, it became too much about the protesters rather than the protest. There are things in the works that are much more targeted and concise. The issue of corporate buyouts of the government is still alive and well and will be the central issue of the election season.
