Watch this video of strange group behavior. Effects of drug use? Mob rule psychology? Really strange people in control.
Our country is being taken over.
It's "mic check" - I have seen individuals do that at all their GA (General Assembly) events - it's done to get the group leader's attention ... it threw me the first few times I saw it too, but, if you've ever 'done' (set up for use) an event with a PA system then you realize the utility of using those words when doing stage setup and testing the mics with the board operator setting levels on the PA mixer ...
Hear it, say it, act it, smell it.....all they are missing is the writing it. The best way to remember anything is to involve all the senses.
I think they’re saying “Mic Check.”
I think he said ‘ damn them ppl be crazy thanks for figuring out a way for me to walk away safely.’
Anyone know where in Atlanta this took place? That’s got to be somewhere near downtown, but I can’t place it. I see the Little 5-Points crowd is there.
Thanks for the link. I was trying to figure out the venue. I don’t recall Woodruff Park being that big or having any trees.
Woodruff Park maybe?
Occupy Atlanta settles into Woodruff Park
Congressman John Lewis came out to Occupy Atlanta on Friday, October 7th in Woodruff Park. He even commented on the Atlanta General Assemblys group consensus process saying this is not something strange or out of the ordinary for me, and he was not at all disappointed he wasnt able to adress the Assembly.
With a facilitator, the Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, sounds exactly like that. The facilitator says a phrase and the others it while tapping on one of a number of special points on the head and upper body. The purpose of EFT is to exorcize negative emotions, and it actually seems to have that effect for many people. This EFT video exemplifies that rhythm.
I would be interested to know what the non-tapping, mind control technique is called and where it originated.
Why would they need to employ this method when the speaker was already using a megaphone?
Here’s a video of what happened after John Lewis left. Honestly, I wasn’t able to watch the whole thing. I still haven’t completely recovered from what I saw yesterday.
because somebody thought it would be “cool”
Not surprising. Their blind faith in socialism lets them excuse it every time by saying "the wrong people got in charge; we just have to put the right people in power and everything will work!"
These must be some of the idiots that enjoyed inflated national test scores in the Atlanta Public School System when they cheated the last couple of years. I’ve not seen such idiocy in quite a while.
Video of John Lewis as he was leaving.
Why would they need to employ this method when the speaker was already using a megaphone?Notice, not everyone has access to 'a mic' (esp. those in the audience, the bulk of the group) ... these appear designed to be a highly-participatory events, actually meant to create 'consensus', to get everyone on board.
Having watched several of their General Assemblies and observed how they handle various issues, it all becomes clear ...

_Jim: There is a followup video posted of the GA (general Assembly) group’s activity with some comments by ppl on the video now too:
Woman Responds to Occupy Atlanta Silencing John Lewis.
I was trying to figure out where I had heard exactly that speaking rhythm before, with the audience echoing every phrase of the speaker. I finally figured it out.Interesting observation ... blends in with other 'mediation' techniques of note ...

Things are really falling apart on Wall Street.
They have to pay attention to what is said and if they disagree a bit, it doesn't matter since their brain is making them say it. If they say it, they will believe it.
Hey, you’re doing it wrong!
If you come across it, ping me, and I’ll do the same for you if I find it first.
... a 1960s-style free love has begun to blossom. More than 400 participants spent the night Friday huddling and cuddling in Zuccotti Park.Imagine that!
None of which sits well with the movements leaders, who set up an internal police group to stop the boozing, pot smoking and hanky-panky.
We want to make sure everyone is here for the right reason, said Ricky Torres, 23, who is part of the security unit. Some are homeless and people who are not really up to any good.
Torres said leaders are trying to curb the wild side of the movement.
Scratch my previous post, I’m looking at the video you posted now.
I’ve got a hand signal for those morons . . .

Hey, YOU weren’t supposed to say it twice. It was MY turn to repeat.
Gotta follow the mob rules!
LOL..what a bunch of loons!
Take a close look at this. Based on some of the other posts in the thread, this technique is being used at other venues. It appears to be some sort of groupthink crowd control method. There’s nothing like controlling a mob of zombies.
On a different but related topic, I’d love to know more about the guy in the red shirt controlling the mic.
Yep, there is some already-mature cult presence at that venue. I’ll keep my eyes open for it elsewhere.
Check out a few minutes of this rally, and the mind control chant-and-repeat used. Pretty scary stuff. I wonder if some local cult showed up and owned the microphone, or if this brainwashing technique exists elsewhere in their “movement.”
Oh they have one. They are sharing it.
If we let them! That's a very BIG IF..........
“Some are homeless and people who are not really up to any good.
So the movement has been infiltrated by bums and dopeheads. LOL! I love commies making fools of themselves.
In cruising YT came across this one (bloke has a ‘mean and greedy’ issue):
EFT - Rich People Are Mean and Greedy
are too old
ARE TOO OLD
I saw excerpts from the Occupy demonstrations on FOX News this morning while Liz Trotta was doing a commentary on them. Sure enough, the same chanting and hand waving, although I couldn’t tell if it was repeat-after-me chanting like in Atlanta, or even whether it was the Atlanta group. It looked like a different time of day, however.
File this one under the heading:

I don’t think this is something to laugh at, it scared the hell out of me.
It must also have been a blow to realize that this generation doesn't know who he is, or doesn't care anymore.
His Civil Rights Movement is being swept aside by an Occupier Rights Movement.
Isn’t he the one that got caught lying that a Tea Party patriot spit on him? Now no-one(even his own left wing base) doesn’t want to listen to him...LOL!!
Last night when this was first posted in another thread, there were only 300 views on YOUTUBE...it is now up to 59,723...lol. It’s going viral in a big way. This can’t be good for Obama and the democrats..rotflol!!
With this guide, a dozen infiltrators in each city could convert these Flea Parties into Tea Parties.
‘Old Marxist” chant at Occupy Atlanta with captions.
Occupy Atlanta: Demands and Strategy
Wow! No kidding! Did catch the last couple of lines of that ‘vow’ or chant?
“I will say one more thing as a Marxist student of history
that I am saying here is not out of my own head
it is out of the history of the revolutionary movement international.”
Indeed. Seems to be the playbook they follow when doing assemblies and deciding on issues and referring further deliberation on an issue to another working group ...
Good find BTW.
...and remember Jim Jones was a radical SF communist.
Despite their weird rules of engagement, it seems to me that the Flea Party has more in common with the Tea Party than with the Obama/Wall Street/Demopublican/Congressional complex. Unfortunately they still see big government — if only they could control it — as the solution.
