Occupy L.A. protesters camped outside City Hall plan to expand their demonstration to other downtown city property, perhaps as early as Wednesday evening. [snip]

Unionized Keystoners. What do you think they would want?
He is probably like or much better off than a lot of people even on FR.
From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"Throughout its history, one of RCP's [Revolutionary Communist Party] principal objectives has been to foment civil unrest in the United States. The most notable example of such efforts occurred on April 29, 1992, when RCP members looted and trashed the downtown and government districts of Los Angeles, triggering the infamous Rodney King riots. During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.
Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"
Here's the original source for the Van Jones quote about the time he spent in jail following the Rodney King/LA riots (Jones was arrested in "peaceful" protests in San Fran). It was in a 2005 interview he did with East Bay Express. They of course (what else?) claim he "renounced his rowdy Black Nationalist ways" since then (yet he's calling for "complete revolution" in Aug 2009! ...see below):
But in jail, he said, "I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'" Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. "I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary." In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist."
Obama's former "Green Jobs Czar", Van Jones, links "Green Movement" to revolutionary communist movement!
See "Goal is complete revolution" below...
VAN JONES (Obama's former 'Green Jobs Czar')
"Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Obama, speaks [lovingly] about Green Job Czar, Van Jones, at the Netroots Convention on August 12, 2009. Then Van Jones speaks about [a COMMUNIST] transforming [of] the whole society."
"Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That group, together with Jones' Elle Baker Center for Human Rights, led a vigil Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif.
STORM's official manifesto, titled, "Reclaiming Revolution," surfaced on the Internet."--via TheObamaFile
VAN JONES SHOCK ADMISSION [in his own words]: "Goal is Complete Revolution"
Here is the transcript of the above YouTube video:
Right after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat if the civil rights leaders had jumped out and said OK now we want reparations for Slavery, we want redistribution of all the wealth, and we want to legalize mixed marriages. If wed come out with a maximum program the very next day, theyd been laughed at. Instead they came out with a very minimum. We just want to integrate these busses
But, inside that minimum demand was a very radical kernel that eventually meant that from 1964 to 1968 complete revolution was on the table for this country.
And, I think that this green movement has to pursue those same steps and stages.
Right now we say we want to move from suicidal gray capitalism to something eco-capitalism where at least were not fast-tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Will that be enough? No, it wont be enough. We want to go beyond the systems of exploitation and oppression all together. But, thats a process and I think thats whats great about the movement that is beginning to emerge is that the CRISIS is so severe in terms of joblessness, violence and now ecological threats that people are willing to be both pragmatic and visionary.
So the green economy will start off as a small subset and we are going to push it and push it and push it until it becomes the engine for transforming the whole society.
SOURCE for this transcript (it matches the video):
I noticed the last paragraph is rather self-serving but true non-the-less.
“Brito said he spoke to an assistant Los Angeles Police Department chief who supported the move, although Cmdr. Andrew Smith refuted that. He said the protesters’ proposed expansion does not have the blessings of police.”
I see alot of cops daily, some in unions, some not. None of them support these filty marxists, whose ranks are rife with anarchists, assorted malcontents, thieves, beggars and other anti-social scum.
He [NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly] said that following Wednesday's [Oct 12, 2011] 10,000-strong union march, a much smaller group tried to storm police barricades at Wall Street and Broadway.
"They locked their arms. They counted down - 10, 9, 8, 7, 6. Then they decided to charge the police. That is going to be met with some physical force," Kelly said.

Re: Kent State, 1969
"the purpose of all this agitation at Kent State was to recruit as much cannon fodder as possible, and then to provoke a "major confrontation." When it came, it would be neither accidental nor spontaneous. It would be exactly what the revolutionaries wanted.
On April 8, 1969, S.D.S. toughs marched through various campus buildings, disrupting classes as planned, chanting "Ho, Ho, Ho chi Minh," and striking campus police officers. One of these hoodlums pleaded nolo contendere to a charge of assault and battery, and drew a fine and jail sentence. The university scheduled a disciplinary hearing for two others on April sixteenth, at which time about one hundred revolutionaries smashed into the Music and Speech building where the hearing was being held, destroyed property, and again attacked police officers. Of the fifty-eight demonstrators arrested, ten were not even students at the school. At the rally preceding the march on the disciplinary hearing, non-student Jim Mellen told the audience as follows: "We're no longer asking you to come and help us make a revolution. We're telling you that the revolution has begun, and the only choice you have to make is which side you're on. And we're also telling you that if you get in the way of the revolution, it's going to run right over you." Mr. Mellen's remarks were included in a liberally distributed S.D.S. pamphlet, which began with a quotation from Mao Tse-tung and the following warning: "The war is on at Kent State University ...."
At a meeting in Williams Hall on April 28, 1969, revolutionary Communist Bernardine Dohrn said that people fighting "oppression" would have to carry weapons for "self defense." On May sixth, at another campus rally, Joyce Cecora called for armed rebellion: "They used guns at Cornell and they got what they wanted. It will come to that here!" And at still another rally on campus on May twenty-second, S.D.S. member Rick Skirvin said this: "We'll start blowing up buildings, we'll start buying guns, we'll do anything to bring this motherf***er down."
Michener quotes a student named Ken Tennant as follows: "With me it goes back to the music festival they held at Fred Fuller Park in September, 1969. Four Weathermen came down from Chicago, with insignia on their bib overalls. They were selling their organization newspaper, and I said, 'I'll buy a copy if you'll tell me what your outfit stands for.' They said, 'We're going to destroy this corrupt American society and build a better.' I asked how, and they explained, 'We've decided to close down schools all over the nation. We're going to start in Chicago. But we have our eye on Kent State, too. It could be ripe.' "
Bear in mind that we have room here to cite only a few examples of the inflammatory agitation and propaganda on the campus at Kent State for almost two years. The evidence establishesin the words of the revolutionariesthat the goal of S.D.S. was to provoke a violent confrontation in which somebody would be hurt, or even worse.
And the most incredible such example took place on April 10, 1970, when Jerry Rubin spoke on the campus at Kent State. Jerry Rubin is a Communist, of course. We can be absolutely sure of that because he has said so repeatedly. In fact he said he was a Communist when your reporter asked him about it at the Democrat National Convention in Miami in 1972. At that Convention Rubin also said that, when he and his Comrades take over, your reporter will be gassed. At Kent State, Communist Jerry Rubin said this: "The first part of the Yippie program is to kill your parents. And I mean that quite literally, because until you're prepared to kill your parents, you're not ready to change this country. Our parents are our first oppressors."
Your first reaction on reading a thing like this, of course, is that maybe I have taken it out of context. You refuse to believe that anybody would say this. But Rubin really told the students what you just read. It is important to remember that, at the time, Jerry Rubin was a convicted criminalhe had been convicted for leading the turmoil at the 1968 Democrat National Convention in Chicago, where terrorists attacked the policewhich raises the question of how such a man could be permitted to address students on a university campus in Ohio.**
Rubin also told the Kent State students to burn down the suburbs. "The American school system will be ended in two years," he explained. "We are going to bring it down. Quit being students. Become criminals. We have to disrupt every institution and break every law. We should have more laws so we can break them, too. Everybody should have their own law to break." As for the campus itself, Comrade Rubin told the students to ignore their professors, and to "burn all the books. It's quiet here now but things are going to start again."
The campus was now ready. Almost two years of intensive Communist propaganda had their effect. A sufficient number of students was willing to serve as cannon fodder for the revolutionary "cause." The Communists needed only an excuse to provoke their "major confrontation." Three weeks later they got their excuse.
"...it is important to quote at length from the state grand jury report on the affair: "Fifty-eight Guardsmen were injured by rocks and other objects hurled at them as they moved across the 'Commons' to Taylor Hall Hill and down to the practice football field, and were then forced to retreat .... it is clear that from the time the Guard reached the practice football field, they were on the defensive and had every reason to be concerned for their own welfare .... The circumstances present at that time indicate that 74 men surrounded by several hundred hostile rioters were forced to retreat back up the hill toward Taylor Hall under a constant barrage of rocks and other flying objects, accompanied by a constant flow of obscenities and chants such as 'Kill, Kill, Kill.' Photographic evidence has established, beyond any doubt, that as the National Guardsmen approached the top of the hill adjacent to Taylor Hall, a large segment of the crowd surged up the hill, led by smaller groups of agitators approaching to within short distances of the rear ranks of the Guardsmen.
"The testimony of the students and Guardsmen is clear that several members of the Guard were knocked to the ground or to their knees by the force of the objects thrown at them. ..."

For goodness sakes why don’t these guilt ridden puppies get together and found a charity to help the folks who “have to choose between medicine and food.” (Anyhow, I thought that’s what food stamps were all about... any reasonably frugal person can eat well on food stamps.)
Let’s take away his tenure and make him work for a living. Lets get rid of (fill in the blank) studies, fire every one of those teachers, and lower tuition by 50%.
Would the students be happy with that?
Wall Street has long been the home of the biggest threat to American Democracy [from the viewpoint of communists of course -ETL]. Now it has become home to what may be our best hope for rescuing it.
We call ourselves the American Dream Movement [they should call themselves 'The American Nightmare Movement' -ETL]. We engaged 130,000 people to crowd-source our own jobs agenda the Contract for the American Dream. In August, tens of thousands demonstrated for jobs in rallies across the nation. Next week in DC, we host our first national gathering: the Take Back The American Dream conference.
The Occupation of Wall Street and the occupations throughout the country are expressions of the same spirit and dynamic. And these particular demonstrations, perhaps uniquely, contain the spark to grow into a movement that can be transformative ["transformative"?, sound familiar: "We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America" --B.H.Obama, 2008 -ETL]. They are the first, small step in the creation of a movement that can restore American Democracy, and renew the American Dream [ie, communism here in America -ETL].
The hundreds of young [naive, gullible, stupid, uneducated, misguided -ETL] people from all five boroughs that camp out every night, in the heart of the financial district, in the rain and the cold, at risk of arrest, are providing the inspiration to draw more and more out of the shadows and into the bright light of the public square. The occupation grows larger and more diverse every day. Young people, the majority of whom are under 25 and have never before engaged in activism, are managing the arduous task of a consensus rules meeting with no sound system. The nightly general assemblies are attracting crowds in the thousands to stand amongst a group of their peers and debate our path forward as a people.
The occupation is a revival of a proud tradition of authentic, people-powered movements that have been dormant [ie, the 60s-era communist movement -ETL] and that we need now more than ever. It is building into the kind of massive public demonstrations like those in Egypt, Madison, and Santiago that can shake the foundation of a system of power that has lost sight of the public good [ie, Capitalism bad, Communism good -ETL].
Now is our time to choose. Will we keep rewarding those whose financial manipulations have brought us to ruin? Or will we stand with those whose democratic innovations are breathing life into our finest ideals? [ie, Capitalism or Communism -ETL] Both groups are within blocks of each other in downtown Manhattan.
For the past 30 years, the country has stood behind the titans on Wall Street and their values. We listened when they said that their banks were too big too fail. Today, there is only one thing thats too big to fail: the dreams of this new generation, finding its voice in Liberty Park. All of America should now stand with them [all of America should help bring down the Capitalist System???, the best, most prosperous economic system the world has ever known! -ETL].
He owns his house free and clear, and has no long-term debt. A “twitch of fate” is not going to dispossess him because he has built a strong foundation for his life and his family by avoiding the honeyed trap of easy credit, which lures most Americans into borrowing a lifestyle which they can’t actually afford.
I agree, he should be able to sleep well at night, especially if he has tenure.
His wife’s name is Butch. What a prissy AH! I’m one of the 99% and I’m fine and as far as I’m concerned they can take this rabble out on a garbage scow a hundred miles and dump’em!
Thank you for that link. Please keep posting it.
This would put them directly opposite a Federal Courthouse to the west and another Federal building to the East. Underneath the “park” is the “Los Angeles Mall” which houses many eateries frequented by workers in the Civic Center.
Another thing to consider — Fletcher Bowron Square is not a flat park. It has raised cement planting beds and numerous stairs. It might be a very scary place for LEOs to have to clear the infestation from when the time comes. They would be unable to maintain straight ranks.
Exactly. There is a Fox News channel TV commercial airing in So. Cal, (although it could be National) The name of the dirt-bag Company is US Taxshield and they profess “it's not your fault, you are the victim of circumstance” and they promise to get you off the hook for your accumulated debt. “So that you can keep your present lifestyle”
That last line just kills me, absolutely clueless and disgusting.
A little wordy isn’t he? He could have just said “I feel your pain”
Finally Obama created a shovel ready job. Though it involves Hazmat suits, cleaning supplies and a dumpster to clean up after the OWS crowd.
If he is a fully tenured professor, then he is making at least $80,000-$100,000+. I’m not sorry for him.
I don’t know what he is teaching, but many professors teach totally unuseable leftist, gender, psychobabble bullshit.
No wonder some of his students can’t get a job. They didn’t get a useable education.
While he does pinpoint some serious economic problems in America, he conveniently forgets to say who is ruining, er, running the country, Obama, his marxist advisors and czars, and the Democrats (including Boxer, Feinstein, Pelosi, Waters, etc).
The mayor of his city is a leftist ahole who had helped to drive it into the muck. The same for San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, etc.
Let him give up 50% of his income to the poor and then let him clean out his own leftist outhouse city and state.
Meanwhile, I just have to keep on working two jobs, paying exorbitant taxes to my spendthrift, illegal immigrant loving county, and watching the DC politicians piss away millions of dollars by practicism cronyism, corruption, and plain old marxist politics.
I don't know where you look for hope, pal, but here is mine:
Your breaking news story has boiled down to about 20 people and 3 tents.
Link at #24 will tell ya this.
Occupy Douwntown L.A. all you want!.....You turds are in the toilet...who cares?
I’m glad that union corruption hasn’t gotten to the point that it’s subverting LA law enforcement’s stance vis a vis the Occupiers. My apologies if I have been over-cynical.
Apology accepted FRiend.
not true. was there yesterday. about 90 tents 200 people when slow
Used to be that people like him donated time and money to churches and other social services to help his fellow man.
But, as we become more secularized and more dependent on Uncle Sugar instead of ourselves, it’ll have to come to a head someday...maybe soon
From the the article....
It has been nearly three weeks since several dozen people pitched tents outside City Hall to protest economic policies that they say favor the rich. Demonstrators say about 700 people now stay there each night — including a sizable homeless population — and there isnt room for many more.
According to city officials, protesters have trampled the lawn. On Wednesday, officials said that reviving it could cost the city as much as $400,000.
So they destroy the grass and its going to cost the taxpayers additional $400K to replace when the finally decide to quite their hissy fit. Unbelievable.
