Occupy DC: If We’re Talking About Revolution, We’re Going to Have to Win Over Some Military
Verum Serum ^ | November 13, 2011 at 7:45 am | Morgen

Posted on 11/13/2011 4:33:52 PM PST by Greystoke

We all know there is a large contingent of radical socialists, even communist die-hards, among the Occupy crowd, but it’s still pretty jarring to see this sort of discussion being conducted in the light of day, probably no more then a mile or two from our nation’s capitol.

“We’re Going to Have to Win Over Some Section of the Military”

Then you might as well go home. Ain’t gonna happen. The Ft. Hood shooter was your last hope.

It’s really nothing new. I used to go to “teach-ins” at ESU and they used the SAME terminology...exactly the same terminology, and that was decades ago.

...and no doubt they’ve been doing it since. The only difference now is that they’re out in the open doing the same thing. Back then, it just wasn’t worth the government’s time (and probably counterproductive) to pay them any attention. We’ll see what happens this time.

Gonna need to do more than win over some. They’re going to need to control all.

Given the way these scumbags feel about the military they have one hell of a hill to climb.

They might be able to win over a few of the lackadaisicals, who joined because they couldn’t figure out what to do with their lives, but I can’t see them winning over committed military personnel who can read the constitution.

Not in the way they're hoping for. What with every soldier, sailor, airman, and marine (and Secret Service agent) having taken a solemn oath to protect the Constitution and not, so far (although I'm sure certain people in Washington drool while watching the Wermacht oath to Hitler footage), the usurper CIC the next 12 months are going to be interesting.

Revolutions are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

When the Liberals eventually succeed in their effort to have the homosexuals take over the military and drive out all the good, decent, moral people then they will have their army.

Consider that the plan...

best comment:

“the thing lefties seem to forget or don’t think about is they have demonized and ridiculed gun owners for years. that leads me to think they haven’t bothered to purchase, use, or train with firearms. meanwhile the conservatives and those on the right are … well, I know who I would bet on.”

If the Occupiers come to my town, I’m gonna start open carrying.

I suspect that even those "soldiers" who joined the Army because it was a more socially acceptable way of getting three square meals a day than prison (and get pad also), take one look at the OWS crowd and go why would I want to join these anarchic rejects.

Well, they have a good start. Probably have some entering military since DODT was repealed, as one of the many ways our CIC is transforming the armed forces.

No sarcasm intended, I believe a few troops of the Pennsylvania Boy Scouts could end this entire problem if they were unfettered...
