It's not so surprising that lobbyists are offering to demonize Occupy Wall Street for money. That's their job, after all: latch on to whatever is happening, and demand cash to support or hinder or manipulate it.

What's sweet is how fixated they are on finding some rich central backer pulling the strings. Maybe it's Soros? After all, these people wouldn't do anything unless they were being paid for it:

"It will be vital,” the memo says, “to understand who is funding it and what their backgrounds and motives are. If we can show that they have the same cynical motivation as a political opponent it will undermine their credibility in a profound way.”

Indeed. Although I notice, it'll probably be equally effective if they just play stupid and say there are evil shadowy backers, so they have a profound incentive to continue to be ignorant... :)

They're already trying on Occupy London.

I think there is a bit of unicode fail in your quote...
