The spreading “Occupy Wall Street” protests, which we noted yesterday, are not only filled with the usual leftist silliness of drum beating and group yoga (yeah, that’ll fill your enemies with fear!), but once again illustrates the left’s wrong-headed aims.
Here’s how confused these people are: The “Occupy Kansas City” protesters wanted to bring in members of the far right who agreed that big business was responsible for middle-class suffering. They see themselves representing 99% of the population standing up to the 1% that controls the wealth. That sparked this outburst from a former leftist ally:
I have just read posts on the two OCCUPY KC Facebook sites that indicate that outright racists, even nazis would be welcome to join in by some since they agree with parts of the agenda. One site went so far as to say we need to find the one thing we all, including them, agree on, then we can gather together. If nazis and white supremacists are part of the 99 percent, then count me out until we weed down that percentage a bit.
What these folks don’t get is that the mega-corporations they so despise are the chief promoters and profiteers of the scheme to obliterate borders and nations in order to globalize both labor and capital. Both the cool cats and the fat cats want one world government, but while the first group thinks it’ll bring peace, love, and brotherhood, the second lusts for profit and power. In other words, the leftist agitators are free volunteers at the service of big business and big government.
Over at TakiMag, the ever-helpful Jim Goad spells it out for them:
The whole “Occupy Wall Street” thing was launched in July when consumer-culture-hating Canadian magazine Adbusters ran an ad asking whether America was “Ripe for a Tahrir Movement.” Adbusters founder Kalle Lasn seems to hate all things American and love all things global. He openly endorsed “Not just a carbon tax, but a global across-the-board pricing system.” Adbusters also hosted a “One Flag” competition to design a flag symbolizing “global citizenship.”
Over the past decade, Adbusters Media Foundation is said to have received over $300,000 from the giant progressive golden calf known as the Tides Foundation, which in turn has received millions in donations from culture-busting globalist currency-meddler George Soros’s Open Society Institute. Adbusters is also said to have received an additional $176,500 “from organizations associated with…George Soros’s Democracy Alliance.” The US Day of Rage site, another agitant in the Occupy Wall Street movement, has also allegedly received Tides Foundation cash injections.
The multicult left likes to imagine no countries — and no religion, too. They imagine all the people living life in peace. They see themselves as dreamers.
But what they don’t realize is that they’re not the only ones.
