The left is on the march. Hundreds of protesters, brought to you by Van Jones and George Soros are drinking latte’s from Starbucks, while pleading poverty. They cry police brutality while antagonizing and rushing the police. Their leaders obviously have read, Rules for Radicals by Alinsky.
So, a “U.S. Day of Rage” is scheduled to start an “Occupy Wall Street” camp-out on “17/9/2011″ (which would denote orchestration by those who use the British means of writing dates)
It all began late this summer, when the anti-capitalist magazine AdBusters put out a call for people to occupy Wall Street on Sept. 17. From Andrew Sullivan:
The article clearly states Adbusters’ hand in perpetuating this into being, which is exactly the problem. Adbusters makes caviar socialists like Dominique Strauss-Kahn look like the salt of the earth, saviors of the working class. They basically prey on college students and twenty-somethings unsure of themselves but with distrust in authority, selling their massive and expensive glossy magazine.
The Democrats attempted to smear the TEA Party by summarily declaring it to be ‘astro-turf.’ The trouble with that idea was there was no smoking gun, just a lot of innuendo and unsubstantiated accusations. The TEA party’s success is in large part due to the fact that there is no centralized command and control. The TEA Party protesters came in their hundreds of thousands and filled the National Mall. That level of participation is real democracy in action. Despite pipe dreams to the contrary, the movement as a whole is maintaining its independence from the GOP.
When the Tea Parties started. They were founded by Ron Paul supporters. Ever since Obama was sworn into office.The ranks were swollen with new comers standing against the socialist leftist agenda over taxes,the loss of freedoms and national sovereignty. These groups nationwide were eclipsing beyond the control of the Republican establishment. Any long term incumbent person in either party was booed in every public appearance they made.
On the other hand, the unemployed college graduates who are doing the protesting are getting a little organizational help right off the bat. ACORN is back. It has been resurrected as Take Back Boston, which is one of several fronts for the disgraced original.
Among the Take Back Boston organizers is a spinoff of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). Amid a massive fraud scandal and a series of criminal probes, ACORN supposedly dismantled but the reality is that it simply changed its name. In fact, Judicial Watch recently published a special report (“The Rebranding of ACORN”) about the organization’s transformation into various spinoffs and affiliated groups.
Then there is the SEIU angle. This ‘occupy wall street’ idea has been in the works for some time. It appears that the only issue was not what to do, but when. SEIU called for a day of rage against Wall Street as early as March 25th of this year. The SEIU organization began planning in earnest back in March, and we are seeing the results.
On March 25 ACORN founder Wade Rathke, a one-time president of an SEIU local in New Orleans, announced what he described as “days of rage in ten cities around JP Morgan Chase.” Rathke said the forthcoming campaign of demonstrations, strikes and disruption will mark “the beginning of the anti-banking jihad.”
Obama is supporting this group. This should be no big surprise as SEIU made massive contributions to his campaign, and its officers visit The President often. It is also no big surprise that Obama supports Occupy Wall Street as many of their demands echo Obama Policy on many levels. It appears we are looking at the beginning of the Democrat campaign for 2012. The party has already ‘rallied’ behind the protesters.
Astro-turf indeed, the Democrats are hoping for a counter to the TEA party. This is not the same animal. The TEA party did not seek confrontation with the police. The TEA party actually looked like Middle America. The tattooed, pierced, anarchists/zombies are incoherent at best, and frighteningly violent and totalitarian in many cases.
The zeal for totalitarian government amongst some of the “protesters” is shocking. One sign being carried around read, “A government is an entity which holds the monopolistic right to initiate force,” which seems a little ironic when protesters complain about being physically assaulted by police in the same breath.
It appears The American People will get a truly stark choice in the election booth come 2012. The question is will the left let if get that far.
