If turning into the thing you claim to hate was an Olympic event, team Occupy New Hampshire could win as they have decided to incorporate.

The Occupy movement doesn't have a history of being very friendly with corporations. The ‘Occupy Olympics’ movement has recently done some protesting of what they call  the “10-day corporate jamboree” in London, but a select group of occupiers in the U.S. have apparently decided that its a good move to incorporate.

The Concord Monitor newspaper in New Hampshire reports that some members of Occupy New Hampshire have incorporated their movement as a non-profit. The move was to separate themselves from libertarians that were involved in the movement who had been exercising their right to openly carry guns and don’t believe in bigger government.

The incorporated Occupy New Hampshire now offers a ‘Solidarity Statement’ on it’s facebook page, welcoming all those who agree to tax increases, more environmental regulation, supporting unions and opposition to the Citizen’s United ruling. It would seem others are not welcome.

A great tactic to form a very exclusive corporation as you claim to represent the 99%. An idea that is certainly worthy of a gold medal for irony.
