[Vanity 12Aug Fear mongering mistitled video of bank protesters] SWAT Teams protecting B of A
Vanity YouTube ^

Posted on 10/08/2011 2:49:50 AM PDT by tcrlaf

I've been seeing this Internet lie sweep across the Internet in the last 24 hours or so, claiming that St. Louis Swat is keeping people from getting their money from the bank, and threatening the Occupy St. Louis group.

ACTUALLY, the video is from an August 12th Protest Rally called "Midwest Rising", featuring all of the useful idiot suspects of the Radical Left.

From the Rally Website: "Who: 400 people from 50 different organizations, including a cross-section of labor, community and climate organizations. Organizations represented include: Missourians Organizing Reform and Empowerment, Rising Tide, Climate Action STL, St. Louis Instead of War Coalition, Organization for Black Struggle, Little Village Environmental Justice Organization, Coal Country, Mountain Justice/ United Mountain Defense, Greening Detroit, SEIU, North County Neighbors, The Rainforest Action Network: Chicago Chapter, Pick up America.

On Friday, August 12, at 4:00 PM, there will be a rally at Bank of America in downtown St. Louis at 8th and Market, where a large number of people will close their Bank of America accounts."

Cops found out about it, and shut down the bank before these nutjobs could do their propaganda disruption.

It has NOTHING to do with Idiots Occupying Whatever!

Another fine example of how leftists spread lies across the internet.

The "Convergence2011" website, that the "Midwest Rising" rally came from.

These lib whackos sure love their buzzwords, don't they!

Couldn’t something like this be construed as a deliberate attempt to incite a riot by the spreading of false information?

Isn’t that illegal?

It was Durbin who said that, you’re right.

Of course, it was also Durbin who added the amendment that prevented the banks from charging the merchants a fee on debit card transactions, as they had always done since the beginning. Processing these transactions is not free, and naturally the banks were going to get the money somewhere, so guess where they went for it? The consumer, naturally, the only other party in the transaction.

Obama was cheerleading this all the way, also, even though many people at the time noted that if the banks were prevented from charging the merchant, they’d pass the fee along to the consumer. It was part of the Dodd Frank bill.

Also, IIRC, Bank of America didn’t accept some of the funds that Obama wanted to force upon the banks. Correct me if I’m wrong. BofA is no hero, and in fact I don’t have an account there because I have always thought their service was horrible, but I think Obama and his henchpersons particularly have it in for BofA.

“I think Obama and his henchpersons particularly have it in for BofA.”

BofA is just the newest Enemy of the Obamunist State.

Is BofA not ponying up it’s required Extortion donations to the National Socialist Democrat Party?

Misinformation like this will be used by the administration for suppression if the public reacts. If the public were to respond in error and make a run on the bank, there would be demonstrations and Obama’s people will say those require pacification. This is how Obama’s forces will impose martial law. DO NOT RESPOND TO RUMORS.

Obama’s program to impose martial law on the population is under-way.

This is more deliberate manipulation. The left desperately wants a bank run, stock market crash, riots in the streets. Even Rush has come to the realization that Obama wants riots to further his cause.

We live in perilous times!
