Democrats Will Regret Hopping Into Bed With Radical Occupiers

The Occupy Wall Street people claim to represent the 99% of us who aren’t extremely wealthy. Based on the filthy conditions these people willingly live in, their bizarre array of tattoos and their incoherent rantings, I dare say they don’t represent many Americans. Van Jones declared these are the best people in the country who are providing “moral clarity” for the rest of us. It’s a shame their morality is steeped in jealousy and laziness. They seem terribly jealous that other people have money and they seem to be camping out for days and weeks on end which suggests they aren’t much interested in work.
The crazy leftists are really coming out of the woodwork, as evidence by an Ann Horowitz documentary. Out in LA, the occupiers have declared that violent revolution is necessary. The French Revolution, which descended into murderous chaos very quickly is held up as a great example of revolutionary change. Meanwhile Ghandi is attacked as little more than a tool of socialism’s enemies. Not to be out done, some protesters are embracing Chairman Mao. We’re supposed to ignore the fact that he killed 60 million people. Apparently some people are going to die in the revolution. One protester notes that dying is a part of life and if you’re killed, oh well.
President Obama has any number of connections to those who are actually organizing these protests. Van Jones, George Soros and his organizations and the unions are all in bed with the Obama administration. But the Democrats seem to be caught off guard by all of these protests, although Obama is not. (we’ll get to that later) Initially most of the Democrats were reluctant to get behind the protests, likely because they sense an impending Republican victory and they would prefer to save their own jobs. Late last week suddenly most of the Dems were all on board.
Why were the Dems so late to the party? The Democrats are watching their own base take to the streets without them. It’s as though they’re watching their own base start a movement without them and they’re having a ‘me too’ moment. The Republicans had the same thing happen in 2009. The difference is that the Tea Party was always more mainstream than the media gave them credit for. Most Republicans and Americans agree with the Tea Party about fiscal spending. The Tea Party rallies were never violent and they were never full of weirdos. By getting on board with the Occupy protesters, the Democrats are getting in bed with people who freak most Americans out. In the end, the Occupy protesters will do the same thing they did for the Democrats when they protested in 1968. They set up a Republican victory and Republican domination for several decades.
Why isn’t Obama concerned about any of this? We can’t forget that Obama comes from this movement and he believes in their vision of history and the future. He believes in their end game. He probably believes that the Occupy protesters are taking the focus off of DC and placing it on Wall Street. As such, going into 2012 he believes Americans will be focused on wicked bankers as opposed to his failed policies.
If this is the President’s thinking he’s sadly mistaken. Obama had two years of Democrat super majorities and all he came up with was Dodd-Frank which resulted in the unintended consequence of forcing banks to charge fees for debit card usage. He’s done nothing else. While the Occupiers note this, they aren’t going to stop supporting Obama over it. The rest of the public knows the bill was terrible and hasn’t done much of anything. The public also notes the 9.1% unemployment rate, over $4 trillion in new debt in just three years, Solyndra and the general failure of Obama’s top down economic approach.
In short, if the President believes a bunch of smelly hippies, perverts, communists and weirdos “occupying” Wall Street is going to focus the attention away from him in 2012, he’s out of his mind. The Democrats are jumping into bed with a ticking time bomb and they’re going to wake up on November 7th, 2012 and wonder what happened.
