Step Aside #OccupyWallStreet; Here Comes #TheOccupationParty

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Well, their list of demands may be slow in coming, but when it comes to organizing a block party for the "Awake and Inspired", it took less than a month...

To The Awake & Inspired,

 

This Saturday at 5pm we take:
Times Square

...with music, performance and a message that the people of this country - not the banks, not the corporations - hold the true power.

It's a rare moment that a grass roots protest movement takes over the national conversation. From the Occupation of Wall St., a thrilling national movement has emerged.

This Saturday, October 15th, hundreds of cities across the country will host demonstrations in support of the #Occupy movement. In New York City, dozens of community groups, unions, student organizations and lots and lots of regular folk are taking to the streets in a mass protest that will culminate in Times Square at 5pm, then moving (by train party!) downtown.

You are invited to be a part of it. Come join the Occupation Party and participate in a stunning moment expressing hope and a new vision for the future - and showing our solidarity with the people who have already been occupying Wall Street for weeks.

Meet at the TKTS kiosk in the north section. From our street carnival in Times Sq. we will take the protest party to the trains and head downtown.

Together we are the tipping point.

Finally, the people are rising up. Government unions will rise up and TAKE WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY THEIRS. No one can stop us. The SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVE REVOLUTION has finally come to America. The trendiest fashions, the coolest bands, we have it all, and uptight rednecks and right-wing hillbillies better get used to it because this is THE place to be.

Having read the book, I support the Occupy the FED, END the FED, Ron Paul, Alex Jones, G. Edward Griffin and every other attempt to shut down this criminal organization.  Their charter is up in 2013, now is the time to shine a light on those cockroaches and stomp them out of existence.  Sadly 3 out of 4 Americans don't know who Ben Bernake is or what the Federal Reserve Bank does.

G. Edward Griffin is awesome, but Dr. Paul and Mr. Jones are controlled opposition. The former has immediate family in the masonic order, and the latter is more interested in working people into a frenzy than providing practical solutions. If these guys were the real deal they would have ended up like Milton William Cooper, who notably exposed Alex Jones as well as predicted 9/11 on his radio show. People like that get axed. The elite make sure they pull the strings on our supposed heroes.

"...the latter is more interested in working people into a frenzy than providing practical solutions."

Stirring up the frenzy is the solution; the first step. You ever consider that? Of course not. By the way, all opposition is "controlled"... until it isn't.

No, the solution is education. Frenzy leads to rash decision making. It's easy to name call someone and throw out your opinions, but I mixed in plenty of supporting facts in my previous post. Try researching them before you slander somebody next time.

Seriously? WTF? Communism? A group known best for its murders of over 100 million people? I see communists as pretty much the same as nazis. Utopianist psychopaths.

Centralized power of any kind sucks - it always ends badly for the citizenry.

it is cia propaganda that communism=central planning. as can be seen very clearly in every single developed country capitalism=central planning. in capitalism gains are kept by the rich and losses are socialized because the government belongs to the rich.

 

communism is very possible without central planning. and the country that will bring it to you will be, usa. that's what marx said.

 

it will just gain slightly more traction when gas is 35$ a gallon...

What you have failed to comprehend is that "lazy ass oldies" actually think before acting. This self-control has been learned over time to prevent expansion of error.

Some of us even implement a decision matrix.  Having a voice and attempting to influence others are not bad things, but having a mind and using it to regulate one's own actions is paramount. You are speaking out of ignorance of the knowledge and wisdom of others.  Do you wish to be regarded as an effete ass ? 

Now clean your room and pick-up the bathroom if you want to go to the protests; Thanks.

Just lazy ass excuse to not be heard. You want your opnions considered, then you have to get off effete, sorry I mean shriveled ass and make happen, or at least support efforts of others. Instead you come here to spout all your great power of self-controlled wisdom. LOL!!!!

It's all good when neo-nazi skinheads patrol "white" area's with batons.  And it's okay when tea-baggers bring guns to an Obama rally.  America is full of hypocrits. (I am not a Obama supporter or any of the potential idiots to replace him).  But  know this: When "niggas" hit the protests and occupations,  that's when shit will really start. We know how to take an ass-woopin' and keep on fightin.  Police will crackdown hard but it will be useless as they will be completely overwhelmed.  Revolutions are never pretty so don't give me any non-violent bullshit.  Cops already pepper spray and beat 90 lb white women while the world watches so you know violence is their first choice.

We are all conditioned to accept second hand information as gospel, when primary sources are readily available only a few mouse clicks away.   

My comment wasn't directed at you, it was directed at those who would take advantage of this fact of conditioning and use their place of influence to massage truths in order to better serve their own agenda(s).

blue man group?! Where were you and the missus for the past decade, in a bomb shelter?  I didn't even know blue man group was still running.  My advice--skip that and go see million dollar quartet instead.  The guy who plays Jerry Lewis is fantastic.  

As to the hippies--can we call them hippies given how bad their music sucks?  If nothing else I hope some decent bands come out of this 60's redux.  If Taylor Swift is the voice of a generation, this movement is going precisely fucking nowhere.

Oct 13 1972

Due to poor visibility, a Uruguayan Air Force plane carrying the Montevideo Old Christians Rugby Club crashes high in the Chilean Andes. Of the 45 people aboard the flight, only 27 survive the crash, and just 16 make it to their rescue 72 days later. Their secret? Cannibalism. According to one survivor, "the slight browning of the flesh gave it an immeasurably better flavor, softer than beef but with much the same taste."

The missing piece is the participation of the dependent class of inner city poor on welfare.  They are not paying attention or involved in the Occupy movement, yet.  The elite leftists, academics, community organizers and usefull idiots are establishing the structure.  They need to get the dependent class on board because poor people will get unruly (un rule-y) when benefits are shut off and the rich, republicans and tea partiers are made the scapegoats.  It's going to make the British riots look tame.  If you don't see this coming, you need to pay more attention to what is being said and done.

In the last few years, I insisted that our family take up the hobby of skeet shooting.  It is an enjoyable gentlemanly sport.  Now we have all of the equipment, supplies and skills to consistently knock those little clays out of the air.  Just sayin.

So you perpetuate the left-right paradigm, thus perpetuating the status quo. You really think the Repubs have a solution? I used to be Republican, until I discovered they are just crooks of another flavor. Then I supported them because I believed they were the lesser of two evils. Now I don't support them because I am through voting for the lesser of two evils. It's bullshit that we only have two choices, both of who are controlled by the same masters. Fuck that. We have a corrupt system that produces (or only allows us to choose from) corrupt politicians. The system is a major part of the problem, and your stance supports the two party system. You are part of the problem.

Some G20 activists held a press conference Tuesday claiming they were "betrayed" by undercover police officers as part of an "Orwellian" infiltration in the lead-up to the international summit last June. The activists, led by Centre for Police Accountability founder Davin Charney, outlined instances in which undercover cops posed as protest organizers. One young woman from Guelph expressed anger over the fact she was unknowingly roommates with an officer pretending to be an activist.

Well yeah, but the division is there and has been there at least since the "Ellis Island" Great Wave.  Almost every soul living in the US today is here or is decendant of someone that came here to get Stuff. Some got it free for the taking; others got lucky.  Most of the Huddled Masses were just at the right place at the right time (i.e., after we bombed our industrial competitors to Kingdom Come in WWII) and got it simply and merely, historically speaking, for having pulse enough to lift a rivet gun.

Hell even the Puritans were unable to keep out the greedy riff-raff after the first hundred years or so, and ever since it's just a contest to see who can grab the most Stuff. 

If you don't have any Stuff, you can get Stuff the old fashioned way:  beating the shit out of some schlob and taking his Stuff, maybe over his dead body.

Once you get enough Stuff, you can hire thugs without enough Stuff (bosses, executives, cops, judges, politicians) to legitimize your hold on Stuff by giving them some of your existing Stuff.

Wall Street thinks they have enough Stuff and their hired thugs will be able to keep it for them.

The Masses don't have enough Stuff and figure the only way to get any is to beat the shit out of Wall Street and take theirs. 

The Masses are not too far off the truth of the situation, but they are still Huddled Masses stealing from other Huddled Masses whose only reason for being here is to get Stuff.

My poor family didn't come here looking for Stuff.  They came here looking for Liberty and no one gives a shit about that anymore.  There's too much Stuff to take to worry about Liberty, freedom, and one's immortal soul.

God have mercy and protect my line from the coming deluge.
