Itís getting a little scary out there.
The Virginian ^ | 10/16/2011 | Moneyrunner

Posted on 10/16/2011 1:54:32 PM PDT by moneyrunner

For most of the Obama administration, we only had to worry about the economic destruction he was fomenting. Now the threats and actions are becoming physically violent. It’s getting scary out there.

Forget about running guns to Mexican drug cartels via “Fast and Furious.” Most of the people killed with those guns were Mexican, and they were doing a lot of that even before the Obama administration got into the business of adding to their arsenals.

But now we have Democrats, like North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue telling us that maybe we should forgo elections for a few years. Others, like Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. say that Congress is in rebellion against Obama and should be treated like the South was treated during the Civil War. Still others, like the Jew-hating demagogue Al Sharpton, are taking to the streets hoping to imitate the violent mobs that are rampaging through much of Europe.

Is it time to start wondering whether violence and the threat of violence is part of Obama’s 2012 re-election strategy?

FRiend,
There have been threads on FR for quite some time saying that violence and threats of violence and pressure to suspend elections were always part of Obama’s plan for re-election. I went, over time, from skeptical to...dread.

Obama learned well when he worked with his cousin Odinga.

Who said “the enemy is us”?

If our own government sends thousands of lethal weapons , and even grenades to Mexidan drug cartels across our borders which have caused the deaths of Amerians and also innocent Mezicans, does it even fainly occur to any of us what is going on?

If rioting happens, then elections should be suspended......for the rioters. The rest of us in flyover country have nothing to do with it and need not be punished for it.

High level democrats were involved - it's not street level bravado - that's a little scary. Their timing was off - OWS should have gone violent BEFORE the call to suspend elections - not after. They've made mistakes - that's good.

(shrug) I don’t care about violence one way or the other.
If it comes my way I’m ready.
In the end, there will be an election and the African communist piece of sh!+ Ubama will be flushed down the toilet like yesterday’s floating turd.

Personally I think the current tantrum is just a dress rehearsal. They’ll go home over the winter and return for a long hot summer.

I do think guys like Limbaugh, Savage and others are failing in the respect that they aren’t showing the clear difference between the cities and rural America.

While I don’t endorse any theories on suspended elections, right wing talkers could sure make it hard to do by clearly exposing the lack of violence in flyover country.

Haven’t noticed any riots going on in the South. Atlanta Occupy USA is as peaceful as a lamb. I’m gonna take a wild guess that its got something to do with the percentage of CCW. We went into Micro Center today to get a new computer monitor. My fiancee’ was CC, another guy was CC because we recognized the manbag holster and one guy in the back was open carrying a .45 ACP.

Remember Kent State. These spoiled wanna be communists will buckle under should the bullets or the night sticks start flying. The police on Wall Street were holding back.

The holdovers from the sixties who are behind all of this forget how all of the disruption came to a sudden stop when several protestors were shot by National Guard as they threw rocks at the Guard. The naughty little boys and girls didn’t know that people take it seriously when you throw rocks at them.

It’s as peaceful as a lamb because they are ridiculous and have boxed themselves into total irrelevance by refusing to allow Rep. John Lewis to speak when he showed up.

If you disrespect John Lewis in Atlanta, you’ll be ignored for the most part by the political powers that be.

You're right - the lack of violence in flyover country should be mentioned.

Also, within the 'occupied' cities it's often a block - or less. In Tampa at one point it was 'a few dozen' people. That's not an occupied city. Of course the MSM is breathless with anticipation of violence and blood in the streets. They're stressing 'occupied' - partially because they're liberals - and much self interest. The old : 'If it bleeds, it leads' still defines local news.

For now it's contained - but like you, I fear this has the feel of dress rehearsal. Next summer could be much worse.

I agree. This phase is just a "meet and greet" social event. All the attendees will arrange to keep in touch over the winter, disperse for the cold weather season, and then re-emerge in the spring to prepare for a long hot summer leading up to the 2012 elections.

Obama and the Dems cannot afford to lose in 2012, especially to a bunch of Tea Party freshmen. The lesson of Wisconsin is that if enough Tea Party-affiliated congress-critters get elected, along with a real conservative Executive, they might do something that will permanently change the political landscape, like removing funding for a bunch of Leftist groups. The Dems cannot afford that.

Good they need to shag them out of there. Enough is enough. Bloomberg has created his own nightmare by ever letting those protesters stay overnight in the first place. Now he’s going to be all over several news cycles when he finally has to evict them.

He’s let them stay because NY politicians, like US Rep. Nadler, put pressure on the owners of Zuccoti Park. The owners are liberals, from what I heard. They are in a tough spot. They own the park. They want it clean. It effects over-all property value of their building and it can cause tension with their tenants.

But with the NY politicians supporting this Occupy mess in their own city, it will take much longer to get it cleaned up.

“Tent cities popping up all across the nation.”

AKA, ‘Obamavilles’
Grapes of Wrath? How about ‘sour grapes Envy” or ‘Greed-borne sloth’ encampments?

The money to support the protest food comes from somewhere, as do the cell and drug bills coming due. The where is the money trail, and I’ll be it has a trunk line to the WH and the DNC.

To paraphrase Nicholson in “A Few Good Men”
“You want me in that protest. You NEED me in that protest.” 0bama is, of course, Nicholson, but so are others.

There’s clearly been a war going on, since Obama took office. The war has pitted the political establishment in power, against the private sector. This war had been going on for some time before Obama, but became more openly declared since he came to power.

The awakening on the part of private sector players took the form of the Tea Parties.

The 2010 elections proved the private sector could defend itself pretty well. What we see in the streets now is the acknowledgment by the left that the war on the private sector can no longer be won politically; so in juvenile fashion they taunt the victors.

The “occupations” are merely collective whines, as the left’s foot soldiers have always been more comfortable wallowing in victimhood. The demonstrations are the left’s acknowledgement that they know their days in power are numbered. This is what capitulation looks like in an idealogical war where no one dies, no one is permanently neutralized; they can only send you the message that they’re still here, and at least they feel they are still relevant.

There will be no violence, certainly none that will threaten the outcome. This is not Europe. The numbers of those who derive their livlihoods from government still pales in comparison to those who earn their keep; the 2010 elections proved this, and nothing has changed since that will alter the inevitable outcome.

We’d be well served to simply ignore them, and continue to endeavor to take our country back at the ballot box.

Re: Occupy Wall Street, 2011

He [NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly] said that following Wednesday's [Oct 12, 2011] 10,000-strong union march, a much smaller group tried to storm police barricades at Wall Street and Broadway.

"They locked their arms. They counted down - 10, 9, 8, 7, 6. Then they decided to charge the police. That is going to be met with some physical force," Kelly said.

(Excerpt) Read more at news.yahoo.com ...

*********************************************************************************************************************

Re: Kent State, 1969

"the purpose of all this agitation at Kent State was to recruit as much cannon fodder as possible, and then to provoke a "major confrontation." When it came, it would be neither accidental nor spontaneous. It would be exactly what the revolutionaries wanted.

On April 8, 1969, S.D.S. toughs marched through various campus buildings, disrupting classes as planned, chanting "Ho, Ho, Ho chi Minh," and striking campus police officers. One of these hoodlums pleaded nolo contendere to a charge of assault and battery, and drew a fine and jail sentence. The university scheduled a disciplinary hearing for two others on April sixteenth, at which time about one hundred revolutionaries smashed into the Music and Speech building where the hearing was being held, destroyed property, and again attacked police officers. Of the fifty-eight demonstrators arrested, ten were not even students at the school. At the rally preceding the march on the disciplinary hearing, non-student Jim Mellen told the audience as follows: "We're no longer asking you to come and help us make a revolution. We're telling you that the revolution has begun, and the only choice you have to make is which side you're on. And we're also telling you that if you get in the way of the revolution, it's going to run right over you." Mr. Mellen's remarks were included in a liberally distributed S.D.S. pamphlet, which began with a quotation from Mao Tse-tung and the following warning: "The war is on at Kent State University ...."

At a meeting in Williams Hall on April 28, 1969, revolutionary Communist Bernardine Dohrn said that people fighting "oppression" would have to carry weapons for "self defense." On May sixth, at another campus rally, Joyce Cecora called for armed rebellion: "They used guns at Cornell and they got what they wanted. It will come to that here!" And at still another rally on campus on May twenty-second, S.D.S. member Rick Skirvin said this: "We'll start blowing up buildings, we'll start buying guns, we'll do anything to bring this motherf***er down."

Michener quotes a student named Ken Tennant as follows: "With me it goes back to the music festival they held at Fred Fuller Park in September, 1969. Four Weathermen came down from Chicago, with insignia on their bib overalls. They were selling their organization newspaper, and I said, 'I'll buy a copy if you'll tell me what your outfit stands for.' They said, 'We're going to destroy this corrupt American society and build a better.' I asked how, and they explained, 'We've decided to close down schools all over the nation. We're going to start in Chicago. But we have our eye on Kent State, too. It could be ripe.' "

Bear in mind that we have room here to cite only a few examples of the inflammatory agitation and propaganda on the campus at Kent State for almost two years. The evidence establishes—in the words of the revolutionaries—that the goal of S.D.S. was to provoke a violent confrontation in which somebody would be hurt, or even worse.

And the most incredible such example took place on April 10, 1970, when Jerry Rubin spoke on the campus at Kent State. Jerry Rubin is a Communist, of course. We can be absolutely sure of that because he has said so repeatedly. In fact he said he was a Communist when your reporter asked him about it at the Democrat National Convention in Miami in 1972. At that Convention Rubin also said that, when he and his Comrades take over, your reporter will be gassed. At Kent State, Communist Jerry Rubin said this: "The first part of the Yippie program is to kill your parents. And I mean that quite literally, because until you're prepared to kill your parents, you're not ready to change this country. Our parents are our first oppressors."

Your first reaction on reading a thing like this, of course, is that maybe I have taken it out of context. You refuse to believe that anybody would say this. But Rubin really told the students what you just read. It is important to remember that, at the time, Jerry Rubin was a convicted criminal—he had been convicted for leading the turmoil at the 1968 Democrat National Convention in Chicago, where terrorists attacked the police—which raises the question of how such a man could be permitted to address students on a university campus in Ohio.**

Rubin also told the Kent State students to burn down the suburbs. "The American school system will be ended in two years," he explained. "We are going to bring it down. Quit being students. Become criminals. We have to disrupt every institution and break every law. We should have more laws so we can break them, too. Everybody should have their own law to break." As for the campus itself, Comrade Rubin told the students to ignore their professors, and to "burn all the books. It's quiet here now but things are going to start again."

The campus was now ready. Almost two years of intensive Communist propaganda had their effect. A sufficient number of students was willing to serve as cannon fodder for the revolutionary "cause." The Communists needed only an excuse to provoke their "major confrontation." Three weeks later they got their excuse.

"...it is important to quote at length from the state grand jury report on the affair: "Fifty-eight Guardsmen were injured by rocks and other objects hurled at them as they moved across the 'Commons' to Taylor Hall Hill and down to the practice football field, and were then forced to retreat .... it is clear that from the time the Guard reached the practice football field, they were on the defensive and had every reason to be concerned for their own welfare .... The circumstances present at that time indicate that 74 men surrounded by several hundred hostile rioters were forced to retreat back up the hill toward Taylor Hall under a constant barrage of rocks and other flying objects, accompanied by a constant flow of obscenities and chants such as 'Kill, Kill, Kill.' Photographic evidence has established, beyond any doubt, that as the National Guardsmen approached the top of the hill adjacent to Taylor Hall, a large segment of the crowd surged up the hill, led by smaller groups of agitators approaching to within short distances of the rear ranks of the Guardsmen.

"The testimony of the students and Guardsmen is clear that several members of the Guard were knocked to the ground or to their knees by the force of the objects thrown at them. ..."
