Frances Fox Piven: "We Desperately Need A Popular Uprising" (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | October 2, 2011 | RealClearPolitics

FRANCES FOX PIVEN: "I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are here are really wonderful. I would do anything to help them." (TV Show: "Democracy Now!")

Unless it’s the Tea Party - then it doesn’t count.

There is one. The TEA Party. The tax slaves are rebelling. How cool is that?

The first thing we need to do when we uprise is shut off the food to the useless eaters in the big cities. Do these people really want what they say they want?

I often wonder if it serves any purpose to even cite utterances from such sources as from this shrew . That it serves to give them credability.

It is only a “popular uprising” if socialists do it, otherwise, it is not “popular” but a reactionary plot.

Yet one more example of the self-constructed, self-maintained Plastic Reality that socialists inhabit. This is why the only way to deal with these people is to deny them access to power, for the instant they attain it, they change the rules and metrics. We no longer have the luxury to entertain these people by allowing them to have their way.

Note to Tea Party: start demanding that any budget line-item that funds socialists and socialist causes must be cut or eliminated at the first opportunity. Why it is so important to borrow money from China to fund NPR is beyond me.

If the left were to ever rise up in a movement that, like Pivin wants, interfered with other peoples lives, they 'd lose all their free stuff. Their movement would be self defeating. They'd be going backwards.
Imagine their teen age anguish if the tax slaves said "enough" and cut off their freebie life lines.No more free cell phones or Internet access. No more surfing Face Book!

We already have a popular uprising in the United States.

It's called the "Tea Party", and it is a genuine American movement - not one birthed in the fever swamps of academia!

I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago .....

I walk by these ass-clowns every day on my way into the office. They're parked at LaSalle & Jackson, frequently blocking the sidewalks and intersections. The Chicago police are doing NOTHING about the smelly freak-show that happens there daily.

I have pictures to post of these so-called "99%'ers" as they call themselves. Soon as I find a reliable picture hosting service I'll link to them here. Trust me when I tell you, these idiots DO NOT look like/represent anywhere near 99% of Americans.

Overwhelmingly, they're a bunch of 20-30 year old spoiled brats with bad haircuts, funny hair colors, body piercings and a few homless people holding signs thrown in to boost their numbers.

It's a damn' freak show.

Frances Fox Piven: "We Desperately Need A Popular Uprising"

We have had one for the past three years...it's called the TEA party movement...and it's proving that violence is not needed to get things changed.

The true American patriots have seen through Alkinsky, and Cloward Pivens, and we're not falling for it anymore.

The left is squirts from a water gun, the TEA party movement is Niagra Falls...

Anyone notice she is calling for a “popular uprising” not an uprising of the “populace” which is what the Tea Party is.

If this isn't a part of the Grand Strategy to Re-Elect Barack Obama then I will eat my hat.

Obama needs his own personal populist Tea-Party-Like movement to carry him to victory in 2012 - at least he thinks so. Since you cannot expect such a movement to arise spontaneously then you just put the SEIU and its comrades to work and you fake it. If this works it will be a miracle.

Her type of uprising needs useful idiots, but the TEA party is thinking patriots.

The idiots “won” in ‘08, and I hope the game does not get delayed or canceled next year.

Frances Fox Piven is another limousine liberal who thinks she is inspiring the underclass masses (who would just as soon kill her or spit on her) ala Leonard Bernstein. The irony is that most of the Wall St. protesters are spoiled, trust-funded brats, or sons and daughters of red doper diaper babies. Anyone besides pumped up radical socialists such as herself is ignoring them.

There is nothing more pathetic than someone who refuses to notice that their ideology died out forty years ago. A “sit in”??? Really?? Please.

Check out this video where a young, aggressive Thomas Sowell schools Communist Hag Piven on Welfare and Equal Opportunity

Note: Just fast forward to the 3:00 mark to see Sowell and Piven...

Ms. Piven, I'd recommend watching this speech:

Sarah Palin's speech in Indianola, IA on September 3, 2011

It appears Palin has gotten WAY ahead of you in identifying the issues of the economy in the USA and already has good ideas on how to fix it.

The news report today said that half the marchers from the Brooklyn Bridge went in one direction to protest “poverty” and the other half went in the opposite direction to protest genetically modified foods.

They are immature young adults just protesting for the sake of protesting the onset of adulthood.

We've got the TEA Party. It looks like a popular uprising to me. (A very well-mannered popular uprising, but a popular uprising nonethless.)

And that, of course, is the flaw in the Cloward-Piven strategy: Americans faced with the system being overwhelmed by a crisis of the sort Prof. Piven thought would bring calls for socialism are turning out to prefer telling the government to pound sand and fixing the problems themselves, rather than clamoring for the state to save them.

So, this old hag actually said “we desperately need a popular uprising”?

From the dictionary:
Sedition: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

I read just a little while back where this Piven woman Said something to the effect of: “Why are people upset about things I say or do? I'm just a little old woman and can't hurt anybody…” (I had the paraphrase that, because I couldn't find the original quote.)

Yep. This woman, and her hideous husband/partner/friend or whatever he was (of the Cloward side of the Cloward-Piven equation) had a hand in the policies of the Clinton administration as shown in the picture below at the signing of the Motor-Voter legislation:

Here is the communist piece of crap today: (notice the clothes...)

I would like to say that I think our country would be safer when she's the same temperature as her old Marxist pal Mr. Cloward, but unfortunately that won't be the case. Socialists/Marxists/communists always seem to find fertile, empty minds to plant their failed, corrosive and destructive ideologies in. When she's gone, her ideas are going to unfortunately live on in the reptilian hind brains of many liberals, particularly the liberals pouring out of universities into economies that her ideals and principles have effectively crippled, and are well on their way to destroying.

But, after all, why should we be surprised? It has long been their stated goal to do just that. But, people didn't really believe it. They thought that people like her were just marginal, little old women who wouldn't hurt anybody.
