Barack Obama Led #OccupyChicago Circa 1988
Big Government ^ | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 10/25/2011 4:22:25 PM PDT by Just4Him

Just twenty or so years ago, Barack Obama wouldn’t just have supported the Occupy protests. He would have organized them. From Stanley Kurtz’s essential Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, pp. 117-8:

In fact, Obama personally helped plan one of UNO’s most confrontational actions of the eighties [in 1988]: a break-in meant to intimidate a coalition of local business and neighborhood leaders into dropping a landfill expansion deal.

We know of Obama’s involvement in this demonstration only because his supporters in 2008 felt it necessary to rebut charges that, contrary to his claims of inter-racial healing, he had organized exclusively with blacks. Only then did Obama’s former colleagues from UNO [United Neighborhood Organization, a largely Mexican group] of Chicago reveal that he had helped to plan and lead this multi-ethnic demonstration against landfill expansion on Chicago’s South Side.

…Shouting “No deals!” somewhere between eighty and a hundred UNO-DCP [Developing Communities Project, a black group organized by Obama] marched to a local bank. There they broke into a meeting being conducted by the bank president and local community leaders. The group was exploring the possibility of a deal with Waste Management. The protestors, presumably including Obama, surrounded the meeting table while [Mary-Ellen] Montes [of UNO] told the negotiators, “We will fight you every step of the way.”

The important thing to remember about these protests is that they are spontaneous and unorganized. -Tamara Holder(Liar)

I’m pretty sure Hell had something to do with it.

It's hard to say for sure, but the newspaper and TV people seemed to agree he was a pretty swell guy.

Good question, blasater1960. We MUST make sure this guy doesn't get a second term, though...

Most of us knew exactly what this guy was from day 1. This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone. It’s a damn shame to have this turd as CIC.

You mean the same people who kidnapped that little girl in Poltergeist? We’re voting based on an old Spielberg movie demon’s recommendations?

This is one completely nasty piece of dirt.

"In an October 16 interview with Chicago Sun-Times journalist Laura Washington, Bill Ayers described the” Occupy” movement as a “North American Spring,” akin to the “Arab Spring” still playing out in North Africa and the Middle East.
Said Ayers:

“These kinds of movements expand our consciousness of what’s possible…Every revolution seems impossible at the beginning, and after it happens, it was inevitable.”

After WHAT happens?

Is that before or after he wrote: “How to be a Good Communist”?
