Nothing Stands Forever — Happy 2nd Birthday, Occupy Wall Street

 

 

” Nothing stands forever – not even the inspiration for Occupy Wall Street. But we should recognize this inspiration while we still possess it, while we’re still capable of sharing it with others. It’s not all doom and gloom out there after all. Let’s celebrate solidarity while it’s on the table. And while we’re at it, let’s have ourselves a piece of that birthday cake.”

   The writer is offering a celebration of the Occupy movement and endeavors to persuade the reader that , two years on , it still matters . These iconic images we feel pretty much sum up the entire “temper tantrum” and it’s “value” to society .

 

 

 

 

   Both of these images speak very eloquently of the accomplishments and lasting value of the “movement” … crap .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Occupy Wall Street And The Tea Party

 

” Some say there are important parallels between Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party. I do not see them, only minor and inconsequential similarities highlighted much by those who have a proneness to anarchy.

Occupy attacks Free Market Capitalism, not just “corporations.” Corporations are for them the most visible sign of the evils of Market economics. Tea Party attacks cronyism, that is, corporations that align with power to get undue advantage. Big difference: one attacks corporations to dissect Capitalism and the other attacks corporations to bring about real Free Markets.

Occupy sees the solution for Corporatism in Statism. They want to give government even greater power to reign in corporations. They are blinded to the fact that the biggest corporation is Big Government, which has the power to confiscate and kill and the power to lure corporations that are willing to surrender to political pressure for advantage. In attacking unruly corporations they incentivize even more cronyism. In the end, their solution, of necessity, ends in totalitarianism. The more they attack corporations and empower government, the more Corporatism is empowered until they see no other choice than to offer all power to the State.

Tea Party sees the problem in Big Government first and in corporations in a subsidiary way. By limiting the power of government one limits the lure of power to attract corporations. If there is nothing for them in aligning with government they can only compete openly and win or fail. Or they can act illegally to get advantage but knowing that government is not there to protect them. When government is reign in to limit its purpose to protecting our liberty, government becomes a source of good and a true steward of our liberty.

As you can see, there is no comparison between Occupy and the Tea Party, no matter how many fake similarities some want to establish. “

Occupy Twitter And Facebook Accounts Hacked

 

Occupy Hacked

 

 

” A series of Occupy twitter accounts as well as the Occupy Sandy facebook account were hacked Tuesday evening, with the hackers tweeting out messages like “OCCUPY IS OVER. IT WAS FUN. #SORRY” and “OCCUPY IS OVER.” The affected twitter accounts included @OccupyWallSTNYC,@OccupyTogether@OccupyChicago@USUncut@OccupyArrests, @OWSUnionSquare, and others.”

 

 

 

Union Protesters Called Hot Dog Vendor “Uncle Tom” And “N*gger” But You Won’t Hear About It In The Mainstream Media

 

 

Union Racism

 

 ” The mainstream media is silent about the union violence in general because it does not fit their narrative, and the racist conduct of the union members is off limits.  “Progressives” are spreading conspiracy theories that this all was staged.

We ask this question time and again — What if the Tea Party had done this?

[FYI, the Stranahan post at Breitbart refers to someone in a Guy Fawkes / Occupy style mask.  I captured that image from a video in my earlier post.  The images also are here and here.] “

” The picture shows members of ‘Occupy Sandy’ – an offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement – doing FEMA’s job for them. It’s an illustration of how big government has once again failed to accomplish the very task its supporters ascribe to it – taking care of people.

Indeed, FEMA has not only failed to sufficiently help east coast residents hit by the devastating hurricane – some of them were forced to go dumpster diving for food – the federal agency has in fact blocked relief efforts just as it did during Hurricane Katrina back in 2005.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has ordered Shelter Island residents to “stop” donating goods bound for Island Park and Long Beach. It’s not that the goods, including clothing and other items, are not needed, indeed they were “gone in 48 hours” according to one volunteer – it’s the fact that FEMA refuses to relinquish power on deciding how they are distributed.

FEMA instead insists that people donate cash to organizations like the Red Cross, which has been caught over and over again stealing donations and is riddled with corruption. “

Breitbart 

   “Almost as quickly as the Occupy Unmasked film was released, Andrew Breitbart’s expose on the Occupy Wall Street movement, liberal critics began to attack the film’s honesty. Many claimed the film was inaccurate for portraying the movement as revolutionary in nature and prone to violence. Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin attended an advanced screening of the film and denounced it as “dishonest” for portraying the movement and its leaders as violent or driven by anything other than bettering the lives of Americans.”
