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.
