Just twenty or so years ago, Barack Obama wouldnt just have supported the Occupy protests.
He would have organized them.
From Stanley Kurtzs essential Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, pp. 117-8:
In fact, Obama personally helped plan one of UNOs most confrontational actions of the eighties [in 1988]: a break-in meant to intimidate a coalition of local business and neighborhood leaders into dropping a landfill expansion deal.
We know of Obamas involvement in this demonstration only because his supporters in 2008 felt it necessary to rebut charges that, contrary to his claims of inter-racial healing, he had organized exclusively with blacks. Only then did Obamas former colleagues from UNO [United Neighborhood Organization, a largely Mexican group] of Chicago reveal that he had helped to plan and lead this multi-ethnic demonstration against landfill expansion on Chicagos South Side.
Shouting No deals! somewhere between eighty and a hundred UNO-DCP [Developing Communities Project, a black group organized by Obama] marched to a local bank. There they broke into a meeting being conducted by the bank president and local community leaders. The group was exploring the possibility of a deal with Waste Management. The protestors, presumably including Obama, surrounded the meeting table while [Mary-Ellen] Montes [of UNO] told the negotiators, We will fight you every step of the way.

Spreading anarchy is how Lenin launched Communism.
This doesn’t alter my contempt of that POS 9dumbo in any way
BUT it might gain him some voters among the loony left.They will look at this and think he is a hero
We have known what a marxist scum he is . This just cements it
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Was the protest circa 1988 actually called ‘Occupy Chicago’? It wasn’t real clear from the article. Not that it matters..we know the community organizer in chief is a marxist agitator...but it would provide more evidence that this is the ‘Top Down..Bottom Up’ revolution that all of his marxist buds have been calling for and that he probably has direct involvement in inciting this mob.
BTW..where the hell is the republican leadership? This whole thing is ripe for exposing Obama and the democrats! I don’t get it! WTH is wrong with these loosers?
Where are they? Getting beat up by the media on an ongoing basis. They are running scared and it shows. Obama can pull anything and he can get away with it.- Look what they did to Perry over the birther words today. Not pretty.
