Obama Gets Behind Grotesque Occupiers
October 17, 2011 4 Comments
President Obama is embracing the Occupy Wall Street protests. He’s started using the term 99%, alleging that the grotesque occupiers represent 99% of the country. There are very clear connections between Obama and the leaders of these protests, from Van Jones and George Soros to Stephen Lerner and other union bosses. The mainstream press, even Fox News, refuse to acknowledge the connections. Now that the President is using the occupiers terms, it’s very clear that Obama is embracing them. He’s also trying to set up the 2012 election debate as Wall Street vs 99%.
Of course for Obama to get away with this he’ll need an ignorant public and a willing press. Let’s not forget that, according to Open Secrets, in 2008 Obama took in $15.8 million from Wall Street. McCain only too in $9.2 million. Wall Street wrote and lobbied for the Dodd-Frank financial reform package. We’ll also have to ignore the fact that Obama has spent the past several months touring the country going from one $30,000 a plate fundraiser to the next. Last I checked the 99% down at the Occupy protests couldn’t afford toilet paper much less a $30,000 rubber chicken dinner with the President.
Obama is desperate to cling to his power, this has become clear over the past few days. He’s in the 2012 election to win. In order to win he’s going to try to divide the country on class lines. He’s going to use Wall Street, from whom he accepted $15.8 million in donations in 2008, as his straw man to create class warfare. This isn’t the uniter he claimed to be in 2008, he’s little more than a community organizing rabble rouser who is hell bent on dividing the nation.
Whether the White House is actively involved in the Occupy protests remains to be seen. The connections are clear. It’s also clear that the people and organizations staging these events are very much supportive of Obama’s socialist agenda. The protesters themselves have little idea why they’re there, as evidenced by the fact that none of them seem to be able to explain what the point of the occupation is. They’re nothing more than useful idiots.
Wall Street is easy to hate when you’re jealous of other’s riches. But if these people were so opposed to Wall Street where were they when the financial meltdown began in 2008? Where were they in 2009 and 2010 when stock market was all over the place? Where were they when Dodd-Frank was being debated? We’re supposed to believe these people got outraged in the middle of September and felt the need to occupy and destroy a park in lower Manhattan without any organization or any connection to the White House? Give me a break.
The occupy protests began a few weeks after Obama’s jobs speech. They were planned for the last year and a half. They were originally planned for last May and were pushed back to September, likely to coordinate with the White House. This whole thing is being organized by a group of socialists and marxists who are using these moronic college students to push an agenda they don’t even understand. In fact, most of the people down there don’t even know why they’re there. And Obama is supporting them, using the term 99%. There is absolutely a connection.
In the end we have a choice in 2012. The choice is between big government and small government. Obama is attempting to set the debate as Wall Street against the 99%. He’s using the Occupy protests to do this and the media is going right along with it. Have you noticed all the positive stories about these protests, nearly one a night on every channel. The Tea Party had 9 stories during the entire year in 2009, all of them negative. So the media is completely on board with Obama and the Occupiers. We conservatives have to get the message out on our own that the choice isn’t between Wall Street and everyone else. The choice is between Obama’s big government socialism and freedom.
