All through 2007 and 2008 into 2009, 2010, 2011 we asked “Change to what?” “Change in what direction?” “Is it Change for the better or Change for the worse?” We were attacked for daring to ask the obvious.
All through 2007 and 2008 into 2009, 2010, 2011 we declared “It’s false HOPE.” We were roundly denounced for not believing and worshiping the golden calf bleating HOPE and CHANGE.
Now, we are told once again to stop complaining – to HOPE and to fight for CHANGE and to Occupy Wall Street. Again we ask “Change to what…. Change in what direction?” Once again we get no answers. What we get is yet another a blank screen upon which we are supposed to project our HOPEs and DREAMs and a
cult “collective” to whom we are should surrender our will and reason. We are proffered bottles filled with Hopium and told to “BELIEVE”.
Shakespeare warned “Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice”. So watch and listen to Occupy Wall Street but do not give them your voice or participation until you get some basic answers about what they want and who is behind them – and why Barack Obama is protected by the secret leadership of this latest
In 2008 we were told we had to vote for Obama because he was the “Democrat” and we had to vote for him and keep party unity. We responded “NOBAMA!”
Now we are told that because the rich are bad and the 99% are abused and we are good liberals that we are to stop asking questions. We are supposed to lock our arms with the left and march against the oppressors. We are not to voice doubt. We are not to question.
Red flags are waved telling us the problem is the right wing. Red flags are waved telling us the problem is the rich. Red flags are waved telling us it’s those damned Republicans and conservatives we must united in a solid brick wall against. We’re not buying, and those who say this can GO TO HELL!
It is the Democratic Left that shamed itself on the race card and sexism. It is the Democratic Left that engaged and engages still in sexism and misogyny. It is the Democratic Left that shamed itself on gay rights. It is the Democratic Left that has shamed itself on Social Security. The Democratic Left, or rather the Obama Dimocratic Left is the #1 enemy. Why is that? We’ll explain below.
Republicans and conservatives have their agenda and they fight for their agenda. That’s fair and right. We can disagree and fight with Republicans and conservatives and we can argue and fight with them for not seeking to do the will of the people in the elections of 2000. But it was not Republicans and conservatives that race-baited and stole the votes of the Democratic electorate in the primaries of 2008. It was the Obama Dimocratic Left that defiled the democratic process and for that they can never be forgiven.
Now these animals want us to forgive and forget “for the greater good.” We are to fight for social justice side by side with the very animals that called us racists. GO TO HELL!
We want nothing to do with any of these people. Hyperbolically speaking, when they are destroyed and run out of a resurrected Democratic Party, when they are purged and sent into tiger cages and reeducation camps to be beaten, only then will we consider listening to anything they have to say. Until then, they can GO TO HELL!
We will not stop questioning every time we hear false HOPE and CHANGE for the worse. When we see bulls*it, we’ll call it bulls*it:
“In several ways, Tan was like many of the people attracted to Zuccotti Park in the weeks after thousands of angry Americans, many young and out of work, converged there on Sept. 17: She had never before been so invested in a political act, was disappointed in President Obama’s handling of the country’s financial and political crises, but was hopeful that the Occupy Wall Street protest could become “something big.” While a little suspicious of the protest’s structure — proclaiming to be open, transparent, horizontally integrated and driven by a come-one-come-all general assembly, but with working groups “empowered by the general assembly” who seem to be setting the agenda — she seemed optimistic about her ability to contribute to the protest, maybe to give it focus. [snip]
Later on that same evening, footage emerged on YouTube of a senior New York Police Department officer swinging a baton at protesters there. Only afterwards did the same user who posted that footage upload an extended version, showing protesters counting down to zero before charging the barricaded entrance to Wall Street that police were guarding.
That high-level view online was lost on the protesters on the ground. Periodically, people on Wall Street and Broadway would chant “Shame!” or “Pig!” as police made an arrest.”
Only a desperate fool would ignore a structure that proclaims itself “open, transparent, horizontally integrated” but acts on the orders of secret “working groups” few know anything about. After the “transparent” Obama campaign and administration the only question for such desperate fools is “haven’t you had enough?” Why would you join such a mob? And yes, by definition the count-to-zero-then-charge-we-can’t-explain-what-we-are-for crowd is a “mob”.
Naomi Klein did her best, and failed, to speak as if she understood what Occupy Wall Street is or is not. How does she know? She can’t possibly know because she is not their leader nor their spokesperson. She’s filling in the blank screen with her hopes and desires (and misdirection about the “peaceful” demonstrators and the “violent” cops).
When Klein says that the protests are staged at the right place because Occupy Wall Street has “returned to the scene of the crime” she proves she does not know what she is talking about. The “scene of the crime” was not Wall Street – it was 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Wall Street is no longer a place to finance companies. Wall Street and the stock markets are a huge casino filled with riverboat gamblers protected by stacked decks and marked cards. Wall Street is a haven for speculators who feast on the marks who believe the system is fair. But the scene of the crime is not Wall Street. The scene of the crime is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt fought the speculators and sought to protect the American people from these vultures. But Barack Obama did everything to protect the speculators and the vultures. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama saw the rampant speculation on Wall Street but instead of taking on the evil doers, Bush and Barack bailed them out. The Left, Obama left or whatever that freak obamination is now called stayed silent and it was the Tea Party that decided to act up
The scene of the crime is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but Naomi Klein and the Occupy Wall Street puppet masters don’t want to point to Barack Obama and shout “J’accuse!” Instead Occupy Wall Street protects Barack Obama and the crime lords from Chicago.
We have written repeatedly about what is happening to the American economy. Those interested in the seven sharks, the celestial dirge, financialization, the quiet coup may read our previous posts on the economy.
In celestial Dirge we quoted Kevin Phillips:
“KEVIN PHILLIPS: Well, I mean, there’s several difficulties here. First of all, at this point, what you’ve got are the Democrats are the party right at this point that’s getting most of the financial money. When Franklin D. Roosevelt won in 1932, we know he wasn’t getting most of the financial money.
The second thing is I don’t think we’re more than partway through. The Democrats think it’s going to be another 1933, they get in there, they can do all the New Deal stuff. My feeling is that they’re coming in halfway and they’re going to have to make hard decisions that are going to eat the Democratic coalition like a bologna sandwich. They’re going to start civil wars–
BILL MOYERS: How come? What do you mean?
KEVIN PHILLIPS: Well, if you’re going to bail out Wall Street while you’re saying oh, the Social Security recipients, maybe they don’t even need that money. A lot of people in the financial community basically want to push Social Security on some sort of voluntary basis and needs test it and get rid of it. Now, a lot of Democrats in the labor movement are very nervous about Obama. They put out press releases talking about Rubin-nomics because they see that the flesh of the Democratic Party carries a lunchbox. But the new soul of the Democratic Party wears a pinstripe suit.”
We wrote that in January of 2009 as the Obama stimulus scam was lauded elsewhere and denounced here. Two months later we again denounced the Obama stimulus scam and the Obama Crime Lords:
“We have written repeatedly that Obama’s economic “plans” and his fake “stimulus” scam were not genuine economic programs – they were political plans with political objectives – primarily directed at the 2010 elections. We also warned repeatedly that Obama cannot be trusted and his loyalties are only to himself and his advancement and well being. Obama has laughed in the faces of those who supported him most worshipfully and most reverendly during last year’s political campaigns and made his alliance with the powerful oligarchs clear. The Obama alliance with the ugliest and dirtiest forces in America are long-term and based on a simple quid-pro-quo: they help Obama and Obama will do their bidding. Whether it is Big Media or the wealthy and powerful, the Kennedys or the Kerrys, the compact remains the same: if you are rich and help Obama then Obama helps you.“
The very same voices who today praise Occupy Wall Street then supported Obama’s stimulus scam but insisted that more and more and more money had to be spent. These dolts kept shouting “Keynes” to puff up their demands for “stimulus” and more “stimulus”. But don’t dare mention Keynes when it is a gangster government that will only stimulate corrupt Solyndra capitalist cronies then only a few cents of scam money will ever trickle down to hit the streets where the need is.
Now those same voices want to join in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and their ultimate justification is that there is no other game in town to address social and economic injustice. Sorry that won’t do. You have not been listening or paying attention. Or maybe you just don’t get it. You don’t seem to understand that there is no Democratic Party anymore.
Since August 2008 and the Denver convention we have been writing that there is no Democratic Party and that the top priority is to resurrect the Democratic Party so that there can be some counterbalance to the Republican Party. Both parties are needed but right now there is only the Republican Party and the Obama cult.
Until Barack Obama is gone and every filthy root and branch of Obama Hopium is cut off there can be no change for the better or hope that things will get better. That is a reality that many refuse to accept.
Even if Occupy Wall Street was a force for good – there is no political mechanism (with the only exception being the, hated by OWS, Tea Party), there is no Democratic Party to bring about the change.
And yes, you read that right about the Tea Party. In a rare moment of lucidity, Ralph Nader has some sensible things to say to those who mocked the Tea Party as “teabaggers”:
Nader, like Klein, provides his dross to the Occupy Wall Street goals and aims, but he too is just moving his gums – not speaking authoritatively as a spokesman or leader of the rabble. We’d love to see the plan, the official plan because Satan is in the Details. What Nader and Klein and everyone else thus far has failed to state is that Occupy Wall Street should move from Zucotti Park to Lafayette Park – the scene of the crimes.
Marching with the opaque Occupy Wall Street is not “better than doing nothing” as so many try desperately to convince us. Occupy Wall Street is an Obama protection racket. Some are learning – “I am angry because this is not what democracy is all about. This is Marxist more Stalin like. Your movement, you’re just riff-raff. You’re an organized mob.”
What must happen is the removal of Barack Obama and his corrupt party from the political life of the country and a resurrection of the Democratic Party of FDR and Hillary Clinton. Barack Obama is the problem. When Occupy Wall Street moves to remove the occupant of the White House, give us a call.
