I’m posting something to the blog. It lives!
Actually, don’t bother alerting the media. They’re obsessed with following the pronouncements of a few thousand unwashed anarchists, unrepentant Maoists, and clueless slackers with giant senses of entitlement claiming to represent you, me and the rest of the non-super-wealthy 99% of U.S. citizenry.
Note the yellow sign above which reads:
Capitalism is Organized Crime. The Whole System Has Got to Go.
Okay. And we should replace capitalism with . . . what precisely?
That particularly sign points to the web site PSLweb.org, which is the official home of the Party for Socialism and Liberation. A review of their literature suggests they would replace capitalism with something akin to Mao’s dictatorship of the proletariat and Cultural Revolution which resulted in the deaths of at least 30 million.
Puts me in mind of something Paul Harvey once said:
Capitalism has been our good servant. But some would trade a good servant for a bad master.
There is much hand-wringing about the “Zionist” “occupation” or “Palastine” in this group’s literature as well. Which brings me to . . .
It’s been amusing to contrast the media’s coverage of the Occupy Wall Street with they way they were reporting on Tea Party gatherings last year.
Whenever a large group of Tea Party activists gathered, deeply troubled reporters invariably perceived racism lurking beneath the surface, regardless of how diverse the crowd.
While the press apparently has amazing powers to perceive invisible racism wherever average working Americans gather to call for smaller, less intrusive government–they are willfully blind to blatant anti-Semitism being paraded before them at the OWS protests.
