If you think the people who populate the “Occupy” movement in major cities across the United States are merely disgruntled unemployed or born again hippies reliving their acid and pot clouded past, think again.
These people are not just selfish and have had no contact with reality in decades.
They are anarchists who want to destroy everything and replace it with total government control.
This would be easy to dismiss as a bunch of idiots, but a new, ugly side of this “protest” is coming out.
This is their new call. Earlier in the week the fool once known as Roseanne Barr, called for the decapitation of Wall Street bankers. This could be dismissed as the ranting of an unstable individual, but there is more evidence of a sinister turn to violence within “Occupy” and its supporters.
In an October 12 report (“Occupy Wall Street” — Silly Circus, or Portent of a More Violent 2012?), Timothy H. Lee revealed on the website of The Center For Individual Freedom (www.cfif.org) emails and other evidence of signs of increasing violence.
Lee quoted the following chilling except from a threatening email with the subject line: “Time to kill the wealthy.”
You’re going to find yourself in a country where you and your wealthy friends are going to be hunted.”
The email continued, according to Lee, threatening violence and demanding that lawmakers “stop shoveling wealth from the lower 99 percent to the top 1 percent.”
The email continues:
“If you don’t, I’m going to pay a visit with my carbine to one of those tech companies you are so proud of and shoot every spoiled Ivy League [expletive] I can find… How hard is it for us to stake out one of the obvious access roads to some tech company, tail an employee home and toss a liquor bottle full of flaming gasoline through their nice picture window into their cute house… We are going to sow the kind of choas [sic] you are unequipped to deal with. And you’re going to find yourself in a country where you and your wealthy friends are gonig [sic] to be hunted.”
This is what the “Occupy” movement is morphing into — an angry, violent mob. This mob, and its behavior, are the darlings of the lame street media, the icons of the Democratic Party, the president, and organized labor.
We all know how peaceful organized labor thugs are, just ask the people of Wisconsin who dared to disagree with them, or remember what Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., said when he introduced President Obama at a rally last September:
“They’ve got a war, they’ve got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan and America. We’re going to win that war… President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march… Everybody here’s got a vote. Let’s take these son [sic] of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong!”
If this doesn’t convince you how dangerous these people are, watch this video of an Occupy LA leader advocating violence and revolution in the style of the French Revolution: Speaker at Occupy LA Calls for Violent Revolution.
I also have posted links to other columnists in the Other Voices section of this blog (Other Voices). A number of the featured columns discuss various aspects of the “Occupy” movement.
For those of you who need a historical refresher on the evils and pointless violence of the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror read Demonic, by Ann Coulter, and The Blood of Revolution: From the Reign of Terror to the Rise of Khomeini by Erik Durschmied.
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees us all “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” [emphasis added] However, the Constitution also empowers the government to ensure domestic tranquility.
If the threats of violence from within this mob materialize, the “Occupy” movement moves immediately from its status of “protest” to one of rebellion and criminal conspiracy, a rebellion that either the states or federal government have the right, the mandate, to use sufficient force to quell.
We must hold the enablers of this movement, from the president down to his media lap dogs, accountable if “Occupy” turns violent. Whether they are local officials, from the mayor and council of cities like Los Angeles, Seattle, and others, state officials, the Congress, or the president, recall them or defeat them in their next election cycle. Co-conspirators in murder and mayhem belong in jail, not in office.
In dealing with the economic enablers of “Occupy,” our power is greatest: Just say NO to their products, whatever they may be.
After watching news film of angry, screeching protestors filled with venom and hate invading the private homes of the so-called one per centers, we must, upon the first incidence of the violence their leaders promote and encourage, eliminate the “Occupy” movement and restore the rule of law.
