Watch out, 1%; the (Occupy) kids will be back
MSN Money ^ | December 22, 2011 | Paul B. Ferrell

Posted on 12/25/2011 6:15:28 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

Warning to America's superrich: Think Occupy Wall Street disappeared in winter's cold? Wrong: The 99% just declared a new aggressive, covert special-ops war strategy to take back our democracy in 2012.

No more peaceful tent encampments in parks. No more Mahatma Gandhi nice-guy stuff. Not enough. Escalation time. Wall Street, the superrich and their Washington lobbyists are tone deaf, blinded by greed, trapped in their post-2008 business-as-usual bubble.

Warning; OWS tells us America's going to be shocked by not one but hundreds of wake-up calls in 2012.

How? In a recent Washington Post column, OWS leaders say they are accelerating their battle strategy in 2012. In what amounts to a new declaration of war that promises to electrify the 2012 elections, OWS will be using new asymmetrical warfare strategies, write two of the men who have been the driving force behind the movement since early this year: Kalle Lasn, the editor-in-chief of Adbusters magazine, and senior editor Micah White.

Listen to some of the specific guerrilla tactics they warn will be used in their 2012 "American Spring" assault: A "marked escalation of surprise, playful, precision disruptions, rush-hour flash mobs, bank occupations, 'occupy squads' and edgy theatrics." And in a New Yorker magazine interview shortly after New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's "military-style operation," Lasn warned: "this means escalation, pushing us one step closer to a revolution."

I guess it never dawned on the OWS crowd that they just might have a little bit more credibility if they would stop acting like the corporate lobbyist swine at the government trough trying to suck up more federal dollars. Just being a skinnier hog doesn’t automatically make you more noble than a fat hog.

Somebody is going to get a can of Whoop-ass opened on them.

When they start screwing around with people who want to go home or who want to get to work on time, people are going to be worse than a group of Leroy’s fighting to buy Air Jordans.

They also might have more credibility if they weren’t backed by communists to include George Soros.

"marked escalation of surprise, playful, precision disruptions, rush-hour flash mobs, bank occupations, 'occupy squads' and edgy theatrics."

"Mobs" and "edgy theatrics" add the likelihood that a Grand Jury will judge self-defense actions as a reasonable reaction to a real or perceived threat to armed citizens.

We've seen this before, but this time it's on a much larger scale. The Bolsheviks terrorized the streets of Chicago when they took control of the Democrat Party during the 1968 Democrat Convention, and now these Communists think, if they can terrorize the entire country as they did Chicago, they will take control of the entire country.

This is just more proof that pot smoking leads to mental retardation.

This is different in one huge way.....OWS is in fact the US branch of what has been called the Global Culture of Resistance.

They are linked to movements in Europe, Latin America and the mis-east. They make supportive/learning missions at other protest event such as in Egypt. They want to tear down what is and replace it with a socialist chaos...

Here is a link to their nerve center...

You do not hunk these useful idiots will try any of this crap in any state with conceal carry laws? It is no coincidence that the knock out game is not played in our area. They give out a few hundred permits a week in our county, there must be tens of thousands of concealed carry permits not to mention shotguns in the vehicle. Nice thing about money it is portable and mostly electronic. Go ahead screw with brokers in NYC, Chicago, LA, there are plenty of brokerage firms in the South and we know how to deal with flash mobs.

The Republicans should run ads that show the OWS crowd attacking police, spewing anti semetic slurs, trashing the area, defecating on police cars etc., interspersed with clips of Obama expressing his support for the movement, and Nancy Pelosi saying "God bless them." That's what the Republicans should do - but they won't.

Good.

Since they failed to dissociate themselves from the political left, their antics will only serve to further sour relations with normal Americans as we go into the general election season.

These are Øbozo’s people, doing Øbozo’s bidding.

Any bets they want to help cause the election year "crisis" that enables the regime to stack the deck?

Many will pooh-pooh the OWS crowd, but the actual organizers are professional radicals that will be there to incite anger and violence and anyone with conservative/patriotic values will be warned to keep hands off even as they become the targets. Might be Holder's last hurrah if he is still seated and his motivation will be to keep Obama in office to assure a pardon.

I think those who are poo pooing this as nothing to be concerned about are wrong. I started paying attention to this before the Day of Rage and what I read was very disconcerting. I think this has the potential to do exactly what they intend. I think there is big money behind it and the people pulling the strings know exactly what they’re doing.

You are right...this is too internationally connected and too well funded to chump off as 1968 redux...

This article is enlightening...

http://nymag.com/news/politics/occupy-wall-street-2011-12/

The left has been working and waiting for the current confluence of factors to arise (internet, sat-phones, global financial crisis, arab uprisings, EU bankruptcies, obama). They want to change everything but they have no clear idea of what they want in its place....except a vaguely marxist chaos.

The Segway is WAY COOL and should have changed the coutry and economy

but it came out with a $6K price tag which was stupid stupd stupid

it is like a chevy volt at over $40K

If the Segway had come out with a $1200 price tag it would have sold 10 times as many and be mass produced at under $500 by now

What is the Occupy movement?
According to this Wiki (take it worth a grain of salt) says the following.

“The Occupy movement is an international protest movement that is primarily directed against economic and social inequality. The first Occupy protest to receive the most coverage was Occupy Wall Street in New York City, which began on September 17, 2011. By October 9, the Occupy protests had taken place or were ongoing in over 95 cities across 82 countries, and over 600 communities in the United States. As of December 20 the Meetup page “Occupy Together” listed 2,751 Occupy communities worldwide.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupy_movement

Yes, it is global with Obama and Soros at the center of it.

I made the mistake of being in favor of the Patroit Act at first. Upon further reflection and observation, the Patroit Act was enacted to be used against such groups as the Tea Partiers,legimate gun owners,"Right Wing" groups, a/k/a as adherents and proponents of the Constitution,Christians, and other individuals whovalue their freedom.

The Patroit Act wil never be used against muslims, Communists, Socialists,any group that advocates the killing of Whites,or any group which professes and demonestrates hatred and violence toward the United States.
