Skip to comments.Radical Rage: Marxist Mob Plans to Occupy Wall Street
Posted on 09/16/2011 4:48:47 AM PDT by SJackson
The US Day of Rages Twitter feed features a photo of a defaced ten-dollar bill. Someone has added black hair and a Hitler moustache to Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, whom Congress honored in 1999 as the man who more than any other designed the Government of the United States.
The Founders as Nazis: thats what the leftists who plan to occupy Wall Street tomorrow think of the American experiment. Its not as if the media-savvy organizers of the US Day of Rage dont understand the significance of the Founders. The events website constantly invokes the name of Publius, the pseudonym that Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay shared as they wrote The Federalist Papers.
Organizers of the event swear up and down that the mass protest will be nonviolent in nature. This raises the question of why they named their event after the original Days of Rage that took place in Chicago in 1969. That tumultuous year, members of what was later to become known as the Weather Underground provoked four days of riots and demonstrations against The System.
The September 17 protest comes months after ACORN founder Wade Rathke wrote of an anti-banking jihad and SEIU operative Stephen Lerner promised to bring down the stock market through a campaign of disruption. Sociologist Abby Scher said she was bullish on the potential of Lerners plan to cause massive upheaval. As Frances Fox Piven and [Richard] Cloward taught us poor peoples movements are successful when they create conditions of ungovernability. And then you win victories.
Its not entirely clear what will transpire in Lower Manhattan, but dont believe US Day of Rage organizers when they say their event will not turn violent. They claim they are fighting a war for the soul of our nation, its people.
At the event Saturday, organizers vow to conduct a horizontal mesh protest by occupying public spaces on Wall Street itself and throughout the entire island of Manhattan.
Echoing radical lawyer William Kunstlers infamous observation that the police can be an army of occupation, the US Day of Rage website makes it clear that members of the New York Police Department are the enemy. Citizens have been prevented from exercising their right to peaceable assembly in New York City because the force established to serve and protect civil society, the NYPD, has become a counter-intel paramilitary force.
At the Manhattan-wide protest, which will be accompanied by companion protests in Portland, OR, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Austin, Texas, legal observers from the pro-communist National Lawyers Guild will be available.
The guild helpfully advises would-be demonstrators not to cooperate with members of the NYPDs intelligence division or with any police officers. Participants should arrive with legal contact information written on your wrist or ankle; there is no guarantee that information written on paper will be accessible in the event of arrest.

According to Adbusters, the Noam Chomsky-friendly magazine that regards capitalism as a disease and consumer advertising as mental pollution, 20,000 radicals, union members, and others are expected to occupy Wall Street. Hacktivists, who use computers and computer networks as a means of protest to promote political ends, are also expected to participate tomorrow.
Adbusters Media Foundation of Vancouver, Canada, the nonprofit behind the anti-consumerist magazine, has received funding from organizations associated with radical philanthropist George Soross Democracy Alliance, a donor collaborative that wants to push America even farther left. The foundation has received $176,500 since 2001 from the Glaser Progress Foundation, which was created by Alliance member Rob Glaser. Glaser heads the online multimedia company RealNetworks.
The Adbusters Media Foundation has also taken in $309,773 from the Tides Foundation since 2001. Tides was created by Drummond Pike, a close friend of ACORN founder Wade Rathke. When it was revealed in 2008 that Rathkes brother Dale had embezzled nearly a million dollars from ACORN, Pike tried to squelch the scandal by writing a six-figure check to cover the perpetrators remaining restitution payments.
Tomorrows exercise in Marxist mobocracy is just one of many scheduled nationwide in coming months. George Goehl, executive director of Chicago-based National Peoples Action, laid out the Lefts street protest strategy last year. He said the banking crisis is the next big thing and the way to build a big economic justice movement in this country.
The crisis presents a once in a lifetime opportunity as progressives to engage millions of Americans in a big conversation around serious economic restructuring, he said, not around eking out some victories around the margins, not about making life a little less worse for people, but about big time transformative change.
These radicals should be taken at their word.
The September 17 demonstration is one of many planned in coming months by the activist Left. The October 2011 Coalition is planning to occupy Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., starting on October 6 if any U.S. troops, contractors, or mercenaries remain in Afghanistan. Protesters will resist the corporate machine by taking over the area to demand that Americas resources be invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation.
The group said its intention is to make the plaza one block away from the White House our Tahrir Square, Cairo. The protest is modeled after the demonstrations that brought down the Egyptian government in February. The coalitions leader, former ACORN spokesman David Swanson, said supporters will shut down offices, buildings, streets, hallways, to nonviolently, strictly nonviolently resist what our government is doing. Of course, it is unclear how the mighty U.S. government could be shut down without the use of violence.
Lets hope we dont find out.

I suppose mayor bloooomers will make sure that they dont eat salt or transfats....smoke...or carry weapons...unless of course they are muslims and then they can do whatever they like....
Oh, I rather hope we do.
Let's take the mask off. Let us see our enemy's face.
These are the same New Left scum that spat upon returning Vietnam veterans long ago. They are the mad bombers of the Weather Underground...a gang of filthy communists. “Days of Rage”, the thematic slogan first unveiled at the Chicago Democratic convention riots of yore, has now been “franchised” for use by Islamists of the Arab Spring and the coming atractions of various vile anarchists and hooligans du jour.
Time for some righteous indignation.
They appear to have purposefully scheduled this to conflict with my Day of Buckshot celebration.
Looks like there’s gonna be some “Must See TV” this weekend.
BRING IT ON!!!! I can’t WAIT for these PARASITES to do this!! Too bad it’s on SUNDAY and not a week day!!
Sure. Let America see today's democrat party. (Even better, it's in a liberal city.) Let the left wing politicians and moderate democrat voters see what they've created.
Civic disorder ALWAYS = government failure. Period
Perhaps we can have a re-run.
Wonder if there will be any dimrat politicians participating.
Oboma has screwed up so badly, this would simply be icing on the cake. At this point, all these left wing loons have to do is show up and Obomas poll numbers hit rock bottom.
Honestly, Cater can now die in peace. He no longer holds the Presidential Loser record.
“Perhaps the President will show up and do a fundraiser”
The Day of Rage is probably the reason he wanted the jobs bill passed “right now” - ACORN money in the bill:
Oh I hope so - especially the ones who are going to be running for reelection in 2012. They'll get stuck to the Oboma administration like glue.
Is it a coincidence that September 17 is also Constitution Day?
Essentially, they’re protesting work.
They don’t want to have to do any work, they just want money “retasked” to human needs, you know, like buying Keds sneakers, Patchouli, hoodies and free weed for everyone.
Obviously this rabble are our enemy. But having said that - for the most part Wall Street are not our friends. I’m not all that enamored of Wall Street either.
The Left paints a vast, fantastic background on which we are to view real current events. They also have hijacked the narrative.
We have a lot of catching up to do if we’re going to turn this ship around.
Alexander Hamilton was a tool of the Rothschild Family. He was working on behalf of the international banking cartel, not the United States.
You are right, and peaceful demonstration is FINE.
No law without order ...no freedom without law.
Civic disorder is not a responsible alternative.
In America, representative government is in place. You have a grievance....??? Make your grievance known at the ballot box.
Destroying or damaging private property is NOT going to say anything about your cause or your complaint except that you are selfish, disrespectful, malicious and a criminal.
Sounds like a bunch of hippie-communist-wannabe’s trying to relive the good old days. They’re as irrelevant now as they were then.
Exclusive: Bill Ayers Talks About Election Night in Grant Park
From NBC Chicago, Jan 21, 2009:
Bill Ayers was "overflowing with happiness, relief, love" when he and his wife went to Grant Park with tens of thousands of Chicagoans to celebrate the election of President Barack Obama.
Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, spoke exclusively with NBC Chicago's Dick Johnson about why they joined the Election Night celebration in the park, where 40 years before they helped stage the Days of Rage riots.
The couple said they got last-minute tickets from a friend to be in Grant Park that night.
"I couldn't stop crying a couple of times. I found the exact spot where I was beaten 40 years ago," Ayers said. "But I've never been in a crowd that large that wasn't edged with either anger or drunkenness or gluttony, and it was really an extraordinary feeling."

"The raised fist (also known as the clenched fist) is a salute and logo most often used by left-wing activists, such as: Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."
A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.
In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism. With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democratically self-managed by the workers.
Anarcho-syndicalists seek to abolish the wage system and private ownership of the means of production, which they believe lead to class divisions. Important principles include workers' solidarity, direct action (such as general strikes and workplace recuperations), and workers' self-management. This is compatible with other branches of anarchism, and anarcho-syndicalists often subscribe to anarchist communist or collectivist anarchist economic systems. Its advocates propose labour organization as a means to create the foundations of a non-hierarchical anarchist society within the current system and bring about social revolution.
"This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who's a professor of English..."
The O'Reilly Factor confronts Bill Ayers:
October 24, 2008:
(note the red communist star, and anarcho-syndicalist red and black, on his shirt)
Bill Ayers: "I considered myself partly an anarchist then and I consider myself partly an anarchist now. I mean, I'm as much an anarchist as I am a Marxist which is to say I find a lot of the ideas in anarchism appealing."

Revolutionary ferment in Greece a taste of what is to come for the whole of Europe
The NYSE has an alternate location. Even if you seize Wall Street, you can’t shut Wall Street down.
Leftists are stupid. The bottom of the intellectual food chain.
Remember in riot control never use an over the top swing (photo op for commies) always side swing or jab. If we had only known about the weather under ground intentions in the 60’s. Now they are giving notice to the real americans who were spat on. Bring it on.
Hillary Village is losing it's idiots - at least for a day or two. It depends on how much free stuff gets passed around.
The following is from their website:
"Gleeful about the raging riots that held England captive this week, the tweet has gone out to activists and disaffected youth to occupy wall street Sept 17 today. Social Networks FaceBook and Twitter are abuzz with plans for coming anarchy on U.S. soil.
The Days of Rage will continue beyond the occupation of Wall Street with activists being told bring your tent.
The original "Day(s) of Rage"
Days of Rage riots (1969)
The Days of Rage riots in Chicago took place over a 4-day period beginning October 8, 1969, after members of the Weathermen, a militant offshoot of the Students for a Democratic Society, converged on the city to confront police in the streets in response to the trial of the group of anti-Vietnam War activists known as the "Chicago Eight".
Why on a weekend, when all their hated businessmen, bankers and brokers will be safe at home?
Begs two questions: (1)If it was a TEA Party rally, what kind of media coverage would it get? (2)Since it is going to be a Progressive tantrum, what kind of media coverage will it get?
Stay tuned tomorrow for the answer to #2!
I thought that they were targeting my Parish dinner dance tonight and my 50th high school reunion tomorrow! I would have liked to be there to harrass the Marxists!
A liberal application of automatic weapons fire would have been justified, and could have cut the days down to one.
Pass the popcorn
The "invitations" say to bring a tent... Sat/Sun to set up camp, dig some trenches, and get people organized, and then on Monday the *real* action starts?
We’re going to have to fight for this country sooner or later. Rather sooner in order that there’s something left to fight over!
These idiot-socialist-communists and their government in power forget that many of us on the right belong to the NRA and own many sporting weapons. They, on the other hand, wouldn’t know how to blow a pea through a shooter.
They could pelt us with spit balls made from old Obozo posters. That way the morons could be recycling.
Heh - they’re planning a march in Portland too. Don’t know if they’ve given any thought to the fact that there are already 30,000 breast cancer survivors in town for their “Race for the Cure” march on Sunday. It could get real ugly real fast ;-)
There goal is overthrow capitalism and replace it with the barter system.
