"Occupy" protests go global, turn violent
CBS News / The Associated Press ^ | October 15, 2011

Italian police fired tear gas and water cannons Saturday in Rome as violent protesters turned a demonstration against corporate greed into a riot, smashing shop and bank windows, torching cars and hurling bottles.

The protest in the Italian capital, which left dozens injured, was part of the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations against capitalism and austerity measures that went global Saturday.

Tens of thousands nicknamed "the indignant" marched in major cities across Europe, as protests that began in New York linked up with long-running demonstrations against government cost-cutting and failed financial policies in Europe....

The organizers are waiting to have their “Horst Wessel”, the martyr they can use to advance their purposes.

Glenn Beck was right. To add these global rioters are communists and will destroy anything in their path.

I wouldn’t try this in NYC.

It would not go well for them, I think.

The Horst Wessel Lied

Flag high, ranks closed,

The S.A. (Sturmabteilung - Storm Detachment) marches with silent solid steps.

Comrades shot by the red front and reaction

march in spirit with us in our ranks.

The street free for the brown battalions,

The street free for the Storm Troopers.

Millions, full of hope, look up at the swastika;

The day breaks for freedom and for bread.

For the last time the call will now be blown;

For the struggle now we all stand ready.

Soon will fly Hitler-flags over every street;

Slavery will last only a short time longer.

Flag high, ranks closed,

The S.A. marches with silent solid steps.

Comrades shot by the red front and reaction

march in spirit with us in our ranks.

Bottom up, Top Down. This is all being orchestrated. Did everyone notice the other day when the cockroaches did their "millionaires march" past the home of Koch, the CEO of Goldman etc... conveniently Soros place was skipped. Guess one of the richest man on the planet isn't seen as part of the problem? It's all those people who have about half of what old George has, they're the culprits. Or, maybe the paid organizers don't want to bite the hand that's feeding them.

Replace a few words here and there, and they have their anthem.

I have seen talk of that amongst them on Youtube threads. In couched terms of course.

True enough but the cities are the path of least resistance. Things are a little different off the interstate.

Once the kill ratio hits about 3:1, the martyr approach is no longer productive. Fear becomes the principle motivator.

Time to let a few grizzly bears loose in the park. That ought to help them commune with nature and get the closer to their goddess Gaia.
