Posted on 10/06/2011 5:43:24 PM PDT by blog.Eyeblast.tv
On October 6, 2011, Medea Benjamin, head of radical anti-war group Code Pink, told MRCTV at 'Occupy DC' in Freedom Plaza that unions are not behind the formation of the recent demonstrations, despite the SEIU's Stephen Lerner being one of the people behind the initial 'Day of Rage'.
On August 19, The Blaze reported the following on Lerner:
"Now, the US Day of Rage protests, staged by a collective of activist groups allegedly in conjunction with Lerner and Rathke, are planning the actual occupation of Wall Street September 17, complete with a tent city set smack-dab in the middle of Manhattans financial district. Similar protests are purportedly set to take place across the nation and even world at the same time. Some Day of Rage organizers are even calling on activists to squat in Manhattans financial district for months at a time."
When asked about the SEIU organizer, Benjamin- whose organization is supporting the demonstrations- said he was not part of it and the likes of Van Jones and Stephen Lerner did not want to even touch it, despite Van Jones promising an 'October Offensive' and progressive uprising. Jones held a rally outside of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. on October 5, 2011.

Code Pink silent on predator strikes on US citizens.
Wellllll Aaron Klein is going to have a report about that tomorrow so we’ll see who it is regardless of their mindless dribbling propaganda.
The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
I heard some moron on the news today say that these “protests” were “spontaneous”. Just another example of why I believe we should not legalize “recreational drugs”.
Put them all together in one area.......please!?
That dude kills me... and hair by Osterizer.
Same here but Ancient Aliens is fun to watch sometimes.
They should have a tank drag race down the street that day.
It might get a little slippery, but tanks are built to beat that.
He always makes me think of the “Flowbee” hair cutter gizmo commercials.
That’s true — despite what we sometimes say around here, unionized labor actually works for a living, and pays income taxes. Thanks blog.Eyeblast.tv.
Yep... I watch it from time to time and enjoy it... but that dude cracks me up... the hair... better than Don King!
I had one of those once... it worked... maybe that is how he does it... that is a lot of hair!
