Posted on 11/23/2012 7:20:52 PM PST by chessplayer
Where is the Occupy Wall Street movement headed? Its not back to long term camping in the parks. Their explicit goal for the next step of the movement is the destruction of the United States financial system.
Anyone doubting this isnt listening, because not only have leading leftist thinkers like Francis Fox Piven laid out this strategy, but the Occupy Wall Street movement has even written the instruction manual.
First, the theory. In the last section of the Stephen K. Bannon film Occupy Unmasked, viewers are warned that the Occupy movement is just beginning. One of the lefts most revered figures agrees. On the anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement on September 17th in The Guardian, Francis Fox Piven wrote a piece entitled "Occupy's protest is not over. It has barely begun," where she lays out the movements achievements and its future. She correctly points out the impact went far beyond the campouts.

They think destroying the US ecnomy will help them.... how?
My brother-in-law is a Marxist. He believes that anarchy and the collapse of the financial system is the path to REAL Communism.
Naive, child like fantasies about utopia. He just get angry when you argue with him. Like a spoiled child.
>>They think destroying the US ecnomy will help them.... how?
By forcing the country into the Marxist economy that their Black Studies and Womyn’s Studies professors taught them would be really great because it sticks it to the (white) Man!
“By forcing the country into the Marxist economy that their Black Studies and Womyns Studies professors taught them would be really great because it sticks it to the (white) Man!”
I think you’re 100% right here.
Is that a reference to 0bamaCare or 0bama himself? Either way you dimbulbs have already committed us to those destructions.
Yep, they do get very angry when someone questions their beliefs.
And what exactly do we call what Moody's and Standard and Poor did? And the banks that lost all sense?
Occupy is a symptom of corruption that destroyed the U.S. economy before Occupy started protesting about it.
Not exactly related to the thread but worth a look:
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Obamanation Communism File.
The banks and Wall Street were FORCED to make bad loans, by liberal policy.
Before the economic collapse there will have to be gun control for communism to follow. That is why it is imperative to protect our 2nd Amendment rights no matter what happens, because if the people are armed communism will be impossible. People will barter and use other forms of currency or methods of transaction. Private property rights, and the freedom of speech will be protected along with individual liberty.
Of course, there will be the brain dead liberal zombies who want to eat our brains and take our rights, but they will amount to nothing more than amusing target practice,,, if we are prepared.
The goal of the Democrat is to destroy the American economy and blame someone else. First it is Bush, then the Tea Party and then conservatives. Our country is being systematically destroyed.
.... In the time before Nov 6th 2012 .... With constant warning until the time of decision ... It was a time when an enemy was poised to take hold, and take control of this country .... and all that would be required of those that saw the threat, was to band together, as a TEAM, to defeat the enemy .... that is ... to fight the one that would become the Pharaoh that would sell us into slavery.
.... The task seemed quite simple enough.... support the one that was chosen to overthrow the would be pharaoh!!! It was a simple task perhaps in times past. But not this time. Because, when the country screamed for their help .... and when she needed them most, for whatever reason ...... they could not work together as a team .... and turned their backs on her ..... and she was sold in the slavery that is called socialism.
... So .... to be honest .... I think that perhaps at this time it would be fitting for those that turned their back upon the task that was required of them .... to wander in the wilderness for 40 years and ponder what they did wrong .... and perhaps learn from the mistakes that were made. Then perhaps if the lessons have indeed been learned.... they might once again ... be ready for the potters hand. To usher again into the world a land of freedom... that they once gave up because of their inaction and apathy.
Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s was not forced to give bogus ratings on junk mortgages. millions of loans were given to people that could not afford them that had nothing to do with the government. there is a lot of blame to go around and the banks are by no means blamless.
I have never seen how many of the bad loans were made because of the Community Redevelopment Act and how many were just bankers trying to one-up each other on more and more open lending for non-CRA loans. A half million dollar negative amortization 110% loan for a second home wasn’t required by the CRA. Maybe if one ratings agency had the bravery to say “that crap is not a AAA investment no matter how you bundle it” back in 2005 we might not have crashed in 2008.
What is this “Real Communism” he wishes for?
I sometimes like to get the perspective of the other side just to know what I am dealing with. Take Obamacare for instance. I know some highly educated people that believe Obamacare will be free, they will get better treatment than in the free market system and that they will be able to see any doctor, anywhere at any time.
I suspect those that believe that Real Communism could work if tried by the right people in same kind of delusional world. Facts do not matter. They are the ones that are always the most devastated when the dream comes crashing down. Those of us that know the horrors of communism are not surprised with things turn disastrous.
The activists in ACORN and other groups targeted banks which would not make bad loans, Those banks were brought to a stand still, with protests in the lobby and in the drive through lanes.
At the same time, lawyers like Obama would file suit to force bad loans, and lawyers would claim “red lining” to block the merger of banks.
There is an all-out liberal socialist assault on our financial system. The fact that many Democrats are bankers does nothing to diminish that fact.
Government actions and government policy caused everything that you point to.
The financial mess was caused by the financial community trying to figure out what to do with bad loans which our own government FORCED into the system.
Some private sector banks handled this pressure wisely, some did not.
certainly there was a share of forced loans. nobody forced the government to give me a loan however. the amount they approved me for was outrageous. it was way over what we should have been able to pay. I was shocked. maybe we are just very conservative with our money but we bought a house valued at half what they approved. millions of other people got loans the same way. approved by banks with the bank speculating the home value would go up. government involvement aside the banks throughout all the lending rules and are a big part of the problem we face today. it is simply too convenient to your political argument to only blame the government.
