(Fox News)   There are many layers to the OWS onion, and each one is more difficult than the last to peel back. But it's starting to look like there is a single, rotten core at the dark center of this movement, and that core's name is ... ACORN   (foxnews.com) divider line 279

SkinnyHead: "Thousands of us are arriving in Sacramento on March 5 to Occupy the Capitol with our demand that the 1 percent pay for jobs, education, essential services, and a better future,"

A group claiming to represent the great majority (in Russia, they called them Bolsheviks) threatening to illegally occupy the state capitol building to demand that others be forced to pay for their "jobs, education, essential services, and a better future" sure sounds like communism, doesn't it?


Sure but We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, - That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. sounds like freedom, doesn't it?

Frightened people don't think clearly, but will rush to support any alpha male that promises to keep them safe, no matter how. It's basic primate psychology If you really want to understand American politics, read Jane Goodall.

OWS is a grass roots movement - if you say otherwise, you are racist.

The Tea Party, OTOH, is an astroturf program orchestrated by the Koch brothers from their evil secret mountain top headquarters while they pet white cats, twirl their evil mustaches, and laugh maniacally. If you say otherwise, you are racist.

Somacandra: Why is Occupy Wall Street so horrible again? I mean, its not like they started a war on false pretenses and a single sleazy criminal source and ended up killing hundreds of thousands of civilians without finding any Weapons of Mass Destruction without ever paying reparations or issuing an apology.


It's not that complicated.

They're clowns who are doing nothing but drawing attention away from real issues and harming the cause(s) they claim to support.

If they were adults they would have organized in a sensible manner to achieve their goals. Instead it's public defecation and jazz hands. Fun and all I'm sure but not exactly effective.

ArkAngel: Since this article is from Fox News, I predict a very polite thread full of well-reasoned discussion, a lack of logical fallacies, and behavior that upholds the dignity and authority of the Fark Politics tab.


Polite, well-reasoned, and logically sound are all certainly right out, but this is undoubtedly going to be par for the course for Fark Politics threads.

"...ACORN, a national organization that disbanded after a series of scandals..."

No, it was an organization that disbanded after James O'Keefe's fake "expose" video wrongly accused it of wrongdoing. ACORN was cleared of all wrongdoing, but the damage had been done. It can't be a "scandal" when the allegations are blatantly false.

Really? ACORN again? Its hilarious that conservatives rush to demonize these benign groups. Sure Occupy changed public discourse. Props to them. But what substantial changes have occurred because of it? Fox going after them is like a bulldog going after a mouse -- retards attacking the ineffective.
 
2012-02-13 05:08:21 PM
Look, it's really not that hard. George Soros, at the behest of the Clintons, founds ACORN to further the Liberal Agenda, as dictated by Big Hollywood and the Liberal Media. They utilize the Internet, created by noted Liberal Al Gore, to stomp out the last vestiges of dissent through the use of illegal downloading and fixation on the Gay Agenda. This, of course, is all a smokescreen to conceal the real agenda, which is nothing less than the installation of a total socialist regime in the US Government, made possible by the removal of all gun rights, as well as the power of Affirmative Action and the Unions.

We are literally less than a year away from Barack Hussein Obama from being re-elected President, which due to the Kyoto Treaty will grant Obama dictatorial powers somehow, which he will use to disband all the armed forces in favor of UN Peacekeeping forces, which has secretly been building up their forces thanks to the billions of dollars siphoned from the US and the EU during the recent banking crises. Obama will use these forces to remove us from the Gold Standard, which as it turns out is not an economic policy but in reality seizing all gold currently in the hands of private investors, and creating a giant, golden bull donkey in the middle of Missouri, underneath the Gateway Arch, which, thanks to the secret cache of Diamonds held in the Clinton Stronghold in Northern Arkansas and the LHC, will trigger a global EMP that will knock out all electronics, allowing NASA to activate their weather controlling satellite system without interference, flooding 90% of the globe, leaving the Liberal Strongholds in Colorado as one of the few functioning communities and sources of dry land.

Interesting logic. So if I'm not there protesting with them that means their tactics are wonderful and cannot be criticized.

It's a lovely catch 22: if you don't agree with them why aren't you there with them, huh!?!?

The Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment

I think I've found the problem with these lamestream liebreral media run "groups". They choose names like the above.


First of all, drop Alliance. That's a lieberal word. Should be "Patriotic Californians"
Community Empowerment? Why don't you just call it Obamament?
And you have to be against what you're for.


So, I'd go with

Patriotic Californians Against Community Obamament

and raise millions.

They managed to swing a debate that was focused mostly on austerity and criticism of government towards "The wealthy are in charge of the entire country and have their balls swaddled by every law on the books, how about some equality and everyone does their fair share?"

Maybe they weren't extraordinarily effective in a direct sense, but their presence has certainly helped shape the way we talk about inequality in the country.

So let's see... If any disreputable person or organization is found to be in any way associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement, the entire thing can be written off as vile, evil garbage, right?
