Occupy DC may have been beaten to the punch by a real socialist revolution already taking place in our midst. Too bad the Occucriers are too daft to realize that things are working out just like the socialists plan: More social and economic stratification, while the intellectual proletariat peons get used as political fodder.
The following is the 100% unanimous declaration of Occupy DC, whose website is replete with socialist slogans, imagery, and talk of revolution. These are Obama’s kids, remember? But we conservatives who have been warning about this for months are “kooks,” right? Judge for yourselves.
We are assembled because…
- It is absurd that the 1 percent has taken 40 percent of the nation’s wealth through exploiting labor, outsourcing jobs, and manipulating the tax code to their benefit through special capital tax rates and loopholes. The system is rigged in their favor, yet they cry foul when anyone even dares to question their relentless class warfare. […]
- The 1 percent benefits from economic, political, and legal structures that oppress communities long targeted by displacement, denial of sovereignty, slavery, and other injustices. These persecuted but resilient communities continue to suffer through generations of disproportionately higher rates of unemployment, poverty, criminalization, and homelessness. Facets of the 1 percent campaign to blame these groups for these problems while obstructing healing and restoration. […]
- Financial institutions gambled with our savings, homes, and economy. They collapsed the financial system and needed the public to bail them out of their failures yet deny any responsibility and continue to fight oversight. Corporations loot from those whose labor creates society’s prosperity, while the government allows them to privatize profits and socialize risk.
- Corporate interests threaten life on Earth by extracting and burning fossil fuels and resisting the necessary transition to renewable energy. Their drilling, mining, clear-cutting, overfishing, and factory farming destroys the land, jeopardizes our food and water, and poisons the soil with near impunity. They privilege polluters over people by subsidizing fossil fuels, blocking investments in clean energy and efficient transportation, and hiding environmental destruction from public oversight. […]
Besides being economically illiterate and conveniently forgetting about the government’s role in both causing and exacerbating our current economic mess, much of this communist crapifesto looks to be written by semi-educated morons. No surprise there, really.
These people are just pawns of the Democrat Party and the Washington elites, who want to scapegoat their way into more economic and political power. It is really disturbing that there are so many “educated” people who can’t figure this out. How many times does this historical play have to run until the audience goes, “Ooh, ooh, I know the ending!”?
