KTVU TV in San Francisco reports a band of thugs went out Monday night (gearing up for Marxist May Day?) and vandalized a police station and several nearby businesses and vehicles. One SUV had the window knocked out and a lit flare tossed inside.
These marauders weren’t clearly identified as Occupy Wall Street protesters, but consider that this is the OWS modus operandi. Property destruction and contempt for law and order is what the OWS movement does best. Consider, too, that Leftists have been ginning up for the Marxist holiday May Day, and again this falls right in line with the Marxist ideology of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Dollars to dimes, there’s no doubt: this was the OWS crowd.
If you’re an American who hasn’t really followed current events for the past year or two, and maybe you don’t really know all that much about the differences between the Left and the Right, you really should pay close attention to the Occupy Wall Street movement. They are living out the anti-free market, class warfare rhetoric that liberals have been reciting for years. Unlike the political class who just talk or at the most vote Left, the Occupy Wall Street movement is DOING the rhetoric. They are taking the Marxist class envy mantra to its natural and logical conclusion.
So if you’re a “moderate” or similar political persuasion, maybe a person who is a single-issue voter for the Democrat Party (e.g. Social Security or such), or you have bought into the “the Democrats are for the little guy” rhetoric but you don’t really know for sure what the Left stands for, give the behavior of the Occupy Wall Street movement a real close look. Consider that the OWS rhetoric is the same rhetoric you’ve been hearing from Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the whole Hee-Haw gang for decades: hatred of the free market and anyone who has more than them. Consider that the Democrat Party embraced the OWS movement when it kicked off last year.
So when you’re thinking about where to put your vote this election year, remember these things, consider where the REAL extremism lies in politics today. Consider which party and which ideological movement is really in line with your values…and which is reminiscent of some third-rate country busy trying to destroy itself.
Then vote accordingly.
