Radical Rage: Marxist Mob Plans to Occupy Wall Street
Frontpagemagazine ^ | September 16, 2011 | Matthew Vadum

Posted on 09/16/2011 4:48:47 AM PDT by SJackson

The US Day of Rage’s 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: that’s what the leftists who plan to occupy Wall Street tomorrow think of the American experiment. It’s not as if the media-savvy organizers of the US Day of Rage don’t understand the significance of the Founders. The event’s 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 Lerner’s 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.”

It’s not entirely clear what will transpire in Lower Manhattan, but don’t 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 Kunstler’s 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 NYPD’s 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 Soros’s 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 Rathke’s 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 perpetrator’s remaining restitution payments.

Tomorrow’s exercise in Marxist mobocracy is just one of many scheduled nationwide in coming months. George Goehl, executive director of Chicago-based National People’s Action, laid out the Left’s 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 America’s 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 coalition’s 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.

Let’s hope we don’t find out.

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.

Part of the reason Nixon became president (the Left hated Nixon) was because the Left thoroughly disrupted the 1968 Democrat Convention. Abbie Hoffman, radical hippy shenanigans in Richard Daley's Chicago. Handled badly on all sides. And so Nixon got elected.

Perhaps we can have a re-run.

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.

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.

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.

The Left paints a vast, fantastic background on which we are to view real current events. They also have hijacked the narrative.

You are right, and peaceful demonstration is FINE.

But... remember:

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.

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.

Anarcho-syndicalism


A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.

In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism.[78] 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.[79] 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.

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.

They're calling it "Day Of Rage" after Bill Ayers's Weather Underground's "Days Of Rage" in 1969. A collection of communist-anarchist groups is behind it.

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!

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.
