If one were to listen to the mainstream media you would think Occupy Wall Street has gone away. But for a handful of violent clashes with police, the OWS movement has moved out of the headlines. Last year the media didn’t warn the country about the impending Wall Street protests organized far in advance by Stephen Lerner of SEIU, Van Jones and others. They then pretended like the movement was organic, suddenly popping up out of nowhere. Never mind that the left was on record concerning their plans to protest banks, investment houses and the rich generally. The media is pulling the same stunt again.
OWS is set to return April 9th with something called a “99% Spring.” This supposedly non-violent week of protests is being organized by a who’s who of leftists and leftist organizations. The UAW, Moveon.org, Engage, Progressive Democrats of America, Van Jones, Sarita Gupta etc. These folks are planning for massive protests throughout the country during the week of April 9th. Yet the media is going to portray the protests as an organic, spontaneous event. Never mind that the left issued a press release on the subject on February 15th and has spent many months organizing the protests.
It appears the UAW is taking the lead in organizing the 99% Spring. This is interesting in light of the fact that the UAW was the biggest beneficiary of Obama’s car industry bailout. The UAW isn’t the only one organizing this though as several George Soros funded organizations such as moveon.org are also organizing.
While the 99% Spring rhetoric is peaceful and points towards Martin Luther King’s non-violent protests, we must not forget the violence of Occupy Wall Street. What the OWS folks are doing with the 99% Spring is trying to avoid a violent meltdown similar to 1968. It seems unlikely given the violence of OWS and the racism and anti-Semitism also found at OWS protests. They can talk about non-violence until they’re blue in the face, the fact is OWS was violent and many of the 99% Spring organizers have advocated violence in the past. In short, non-violence is just a buzz word meant to placate people who aren’t really paying attention. It means nothing to the organizers.
The whole point of this movement is to overthrow the American government as we know it. They want to enforce socialism, if not outright Marxism. Last year OWS at times advocated killing capitalists and in the very least sought to demonize anyone with money. Well, anyone with money not associated with them. George Soros is a good rich guy, so are rich Hollywood leftists. All the other guys are evil.
When the 99% Spring begins, all organized by the UAW, Van Jones and any number of other leftists, the media will act shocked by the grassroots nature of it all. They’ll be amazed at how much these protesters care. The truth is that just like OWS, the 99% Spring will be nothing more than a highly organized protest meant to bring chaos to the streets and push the country towards totalitarian socialism. The media won’t tell you that but if you follow what these people are, how they’re organizing and what they’re goals are it becomes very clear. The far left has a formula, they’re up front about it if you dig around a little bit. The dirty secret is that OWS and the 99% Spring are nothing but an organized astro-turf protest.
