And so began the first annual “Day of Rage”. It wasn’t at all spontaneous. Starting back in March , ACORN founder Wade Rathke announced what he called “days of rage in 10 cities around JP Morgan Chase.” Rathke was president of an SEIU local in New Orleans. Let’s see; we have SEIU, ACORN & Code Pink. Fine upstanding & pro-American organizations all. The festivities are also being organized by Stephen Lerner of SEIU. Coincidentally, both friends of our President. Oh, that’s right, Obama was an ACORN lawyer. Lerner is a radical leftist. Rathke, the same. Lerner is the one that organized the recent SEIU, “Justice for Janitors” campaign.
According to the website Adbusters, a group promoting the demonstration, the goal of “#OccupyWallStreet” is to get President Obama to establish a commission to end “the influence money has over our representatives in Washington.” The group advocates camping out in Manhattan for months if needed to get the message across. Yeah, that’ll happen. The “Occupy Wall Street” website did instruct protestors to do so peacefully but as part of his planned protests, Lerner called for “a week of civil disobedience, direct action all over the city.” Lerner outlined his goals: “How do we bring down the stock market? How do we bring down their bonuses? How do we interfere with their ability to, to be rich?”I’m sure this will turn out just fine. After all, with these historically peaceful organizations running things, what could go wrong? Apparently nothing. I just got word the crowd was estimated at around 1,000. They were expecting 20,000. Oh well, maybe next time.
