    There were plenty of Occupiers who heard those dog whistles too, even if they weren't paying attention to political news. There are a whole lot of progressive democrats in the Occupy Sandy Relief effort, who may not call themselves progressive democrats (YET!).

    When we support them now, they may join us later.

    Red Cross sends a truckload of blankets to Occupy Sandy – NYTimes
    Occupy Sandy Relief started their main hub in the Rockaways with a solar powered generator from Greenpeace.  Before long, the National Guard was relying on OccupySandy to distribute food and water.  The slow motion Red Cross sent a truckload of blankets on Thursday night, 10 full days after the storm.

    This is community organizing. It is apolitical and non-religious. These "kids" don't have time for Republican hate rhetoric, and they have tremendous commitment. When they become voters they will be voters who hold politicians accountable to the people.
