So it seems every whacko leftist group in the country is involving itself in the Occupy Wall Street event. It is spreading throughout the country. It is mainly concentrated in large cities but is also extending to college campuses. According to the Daily Iowan; “The recent nationwide protests are sparking campus walkouts. On Wednesday, many colleges took part in the Occupy Colleges movement by urging students to walk out of their classes at noon. More than 75 colleges said they would participate.” Oh boy. I’m sure the kids are fully informed & are not just useful idiots.
Speaking of useful idiots; here’s a recent quote, “We’re not trying to grab the steering wheel or to control it,” said Michael Kink, executive director of the Strong Economy For All coalition. “We’re looking to find common cause and support the effort. It’s the right fight at the right time and we want to be part of it.” Well Michael, you naive little dweeb. You may not be looking to grab the wheel but the big players are and they will use you up & spit you out after you’ve served your purpose. But I digress.
Community groups like Make the Road New York, the Coalition for the Homeless, the Alliance for Quality Education and Community Voices Heard are also organizing for Wednesday’s action, and the labor/community coalitions United New York and Strong Economy For All are pitching coming out.
The United Federation of Teachers, 32BJ SEIU, 1199 SEIU, Workers United and Transport Workers Union Local 100 are all expected to participate.
Other groups include, People For The American Way, Planned Parenthood, Campaign For America’s Future, Democracy For America, Leadership Conference for Civil and Human Rights (LCCR), Common Cause, Public Campaign.
Did I see LCCR? Wasn’t Van Jones a member? Pure coincidence.
On its face this movement, as it were, seems to be fairly spontaneous. But of course, thinks like this never are. The usual suspects are involved and have been pulling the strings on this for a while.
We have both Stephen Lerner of SEIU and Wade Rathke, founder of ACORN that suggested this idea earlier this year. Rathke is also a founding board member of the Soros-funded Tides Foundation, a key source of money for AdBusters magazine and countless other anti-business groups. And he is directly tied to more than a few unions including the SEIU.
In fact, the original call to “Occupy Wall Street” came from the magazine AdBusters.
The Ruckus Society of Oakland, Ca. is involved in the events. Ruckus’s roots are in the forest defense movement but have grown and transformed into a multiracial social and environmental justice organization.
Who else came out of Oakland? Oh, that’s right, Van Jones. Another coincidence?
Among other things, The Ruckus Society is generally credited with training violent protesters who vandalized and looted Seattle storefronts during the 1999 World Trade Organization meetings. Sounds like a stand up group. Where oh where does their funding come from? You & me perhaps? Nope. Several lefty organizations including the Tides Foundation. And where again do they get their funding. That’s right; Soro’s Open Society Institute provides them millions of dollars a year.
MoveOn.org is expected to mobilize its extensive online regional networks to drum up support for the effort. Ah yes. An event just wouldn’t be complete without MoveOn, which, of course, is funded by Soros.
On top of supplying activists to join the demonstrations, MoveOn is also staging what it calls a “massive ‘Virtual March on Wall Street’ online.” The Internet-based demonstrations are a collaborative effort with another radical and well-connected outfit tied to Soros called Rebuild the Dream.
Led by our old buddy, self-described communist and former Obama administration czar Van Jones, the “Dream” movement is a partnership between a host of Soros-financed “progressive” groups. Big Labor and even Planned Parenthood.
So as we can see it comes down, as it always does, to one man, Dr. Evil, George Soros, who in fact may be the anti-christ. The event should be renamed Occupy Wall Street & George’s wallet.
