It could be said that the people behind the far left Occupy movement moved a year too soon with their antics. The reason for making such a bold statement is my own belief that the movement was set up to bolster the chances of the fraud in the White House to be re-elected in 2012.
Some people claim that the OWS movement is some kind of offshoot of the Arab Spring. This might be true, if it can be proved that the Arab Spring, and especially the occupation in Tahrir Square in Egypt was planned by Marxists, who had been working covertly to overthrow the Egyptian government. It is worth noting that the spark that was lit in Tunisia was set by a young man who had no known political affiliations, but it should also be noted that his fiery death was seized upon by people with political ambition. It should also be noted that the spark in Libya was not so much the protests that started in Benghazi but the regime brutal reaction to those protests. In this respect there was a plan, that the regime violence actually brought more people into the fray.
However, OWS and those involved have little in common with the people of Libya, Tunisia and Syria in particular. They have not been suppressed or repressed via violence, sudden disappearances, torture and the like which had been a common feature in those Islamic countries of the Middle East. The only thing that they might have in common is the high levels of unemployment. Even in Spain, where young people occupied a public square in Madrid, the only common bond is unemployment. The Spanish young people were protesting a Marxist government!!
Lifting the curtain on the OWS movement (or Occubaggers), reveals some interesting tidbits of information. This movement that was endorsed by the corrupt Østupid and the more corrupt Nancy Pelosi, just for starters, was started by far left extremists within American life. They use “Wall Street” as their reason for their anger, but the truth is very different from the facade that gets reported by the LSM. There are plenty of other web sites where you can read about the people behind the Occubaggers, including White House personnel such as Patrick Gaspard, as well as other extreme far left individuals as William Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn. (hmm… they also showed up in Egypt).
The occupation in Zuccotti Park was the signal for Marxists and Anarchists in cities around the world to follow with similar actions. In some instances, such as here in Australia the first efforts were short lived. I give credit to the city of Melbourne to be amongst the first to move the riff-raff out of the city and to remove their camps. Unfortunately the riff-raff moved themselves to the Treasury Gardens, but once again Melbourne has moved against them and evicted them from their campsite. Oh watch the little piggies scream!! It took Sydney a little longer to remove the rabble from Martin Place, but they were also moved on- and yes the little piggies also squealed that it was not fair to be moved on. The situation in Perth was a little different because it was the host to world leaders for the CHOGM conference. Again the rabble and riff-raff were moved on. They were not able to do the damage that they had done in the past where they had caused thousands of dollars worth of damage. Poor little piggies……..
However, we must come back to the Occubaggers in the USA. All I can say is that they are a most unsavoury lot – not even the group outside of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London have been quite as obnoxious as the Occubaggers within the USA. There have been deaths from drug overdoses, as well as a few murders. There have been reports of rapes, theft and general levels of violence. At some venues there have been fires causing thousands of dollars worth of damage. In at least one location (Oakland) there has been anarchist style violence with again thousands of dollars of damage to businesses.
Finally, the mayors of those major American cities had enough, especially when the conditions had been quite unsanitary. Did I mention that in Atlanta there has been an outbreak of TB? Please note: TB is not the same as the Plague that swept Europe several times. The Plague is caused by an infestation of rats. TB is a different virus. A person of note who died as a result of TB was St. Bernadette of Sourbris who is associated with Lourdes, in France. There have also been infestations of lice, STDs and other diseases. The clearing of Zuccoti Park has finally showed that NYC is heading back towards some sanity. At least it was carried out for the right reason – the unsanitary conditions within the park.
Now it seems that the London authorities have decided to move against the Occubaggers who have been camped outside of St. Paul’s Cathedral. The left-wing numbskulls in charge of St. Paul’s Cathedral have been useless in the way that they handled the situation. Their far left politics have shown that none of them are fit to be servants of Jesus Christ. In particular I point to the failures of that nit wit Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury. I have absolutely no time at all for this particular man. He is not fit to be an Archbishop. As a result it has been the City of London that has posted the eviction notices on the tents of the Occubaggers. (Please note that not everyone who has been there should be considered as anarchist or anything like that, since some people have been taken in by the movement for whatever reason – some of them at least have been upset over the damage caused by the anarchists amongst them).
The Guardian reports that the eviction notices have been served and that the occubaggers must vacate the area where they have been residing. Of interest in the eviction notice are the reasons given:
“Through the erection of tents and other structures, you and others involved in the Protest Camp have taken possession and control of the Red Land from the City of London Corporation without its consent.
“The Protest Camp is therefore a trespass. It is also an unreasonable obstruction of the highway. The Protest Camp does not have planning permission and causes significant harm to the area.”
So here we have a government that is willing to serve an eviction based upon trespassing on public property and without planning permission.
Just as the people in New York have been arrogant in their stance, the mob in London have been arrogant. They seem to think that they have the right to obstruct businesses with their actions. They have cost the businesses around St. Paul’s Cathedral a very large sum of money. Please read the whole article to get an insight into their arrogance. They seem to think that whatever they do trumps the rights of everyone else. That is not really the way that free speech works.
In my own frame of reference I can contrast this to the days of the Vietnam War era where I witnessed very large demonstrations. The moratoriums were held in major capital cities in Australia. There were literally thousands in attendance, and they marched in the main streets of Melbourne for example, in an orderly fashion. That is not to say that there was not violence – there most certainly was violence. However, the fact that they kept moving meant that they were indeed less disruptive than the riff-raff that is part of the Marxist OWS movement. I can remember on one occasion where I had an appointment in the city of Melbourne on the day that there was a demonstration. I managed to get to my appointment and did not participate in any way with the moratorium marches. Also, those anti-Vietnam demonstrations were staged by Marxists, including the known Communist associated unions. There were thousands more at those demonstrations than what has appeared for the OWS “protests”.
Now compare all of this to the TEA movement. There are so many differences that it is hard to list all of them. However, I will start with the gaining of a permit to hold a peaceful rally. I think that this is one of the major differences between the two movements. The TEA movement had a purpose – Taxed Enough Already. On the other hand the Occubaggers waffle about “corporate greed”. Most of those attending would not know whether or not there is wealth inequality because they have not even held a job. On top of that their inconsistency is absolutely astounding since they laud the likes of Steve Jobs who was in fact quite money hungry (p.s. I am a PC kind of person and prefer the open system architecture to that of Apple). In fact the use of laptops etc. shows a lot of inconsistency when it comes to the ideology of those involved in the movement.
There is something sinister about the Occubaggers. They refuse to accept their notices of eviction, screaming their right to free speech, yet these are the same people who want to restrict the right of the TEA movement to express their dissatisfaction over government corruption. More than that, I find it sinister when some of them start talking about setting fire to New York, and also threatening Macey’s Department Store. Having stayed at a hotel (Holiday Inn) not very far from Macey’s Department Store in 2009, I feel quite perturbed that these individuals would put so many lives, and businesses at risk. What has Macey’s done to them? What have those other businesses done to them?
There are many other differences between the two movements, but I think what is really important is that the Occubaggers are indeed the ones who have an incoherent message. They talk about corporate greed, yet they display envy towards others. They also show that they are economic illiterates.
