  1. HAS ‘OCCUPY WALL STREET’ BEEN SUCKED INTO A GLOBAL SOCIALIST MOVEMENT?

    Based on a well-produced video circulating around the Internet, it appears that Occupy Wall Street is now officially part of a global push towards Socialism.

    This video makes connections between the Occupy Wall Street protests and:
    Do the American protesters want the same things as the people in Tunisia and Egypt demanded? If so, do they realize that means that they want the government removed and replaced?

    The 15october.net group behind this video makes no bones about what they want. And while it may be too late for the Wall Street protesters to avoid being lumped in with this organization, they should know what the 15october group is really asking for.

    Their intentions are posted online for all to see.

    Consider just two from their list of five demands:
    Do the people occupying Wall Street really want -”the guarantee of an unconditional access to income (basic income for everybody) and the effective and free access to social rights and common wealth (education, health care, housing, knowledge, environment)?”

    Housing… government housing for all is now part of the Occupy Wall Street demands? Perhaps someone should ask this question of the protesters.

    And what of the group’s stance on immigration? This organization appears to support the dissolution of all borders – “We demand social, political and citizenship rights for all regardless of whether you have an employment contract or not. We demand the concession of these rights to all migrants living in European countries. We are all migrants. No one is illegal!”

    The above was presented at last month’s meeting in Barcelona, hence the reference to European countries, but one must believe that they would make a similar demand for amnesty and the acceptance of all people in all countries.

    Today at 5pm, the Occupy Wall Street crew moves from its base camp in lower Manhattan to Times Square for what is being called a “mass convergence/party.”

    So this is a “party?”

    Here are the planned events in New York City for the today’s “Day Of Actions” (from the group’s Facebook page)
    The day will be filled with protests in cities all around the world. No doubt we will see video of large gatherings from many of these… some will be peaceful and others will feature clashes with police and the typical burning of cars. People pushing for a new world order with global socialism will attempt to tie all of these actions together, while in reality, only a few share the same objectives. In the end, all they really share is the same date.
     
  2. If its a global push to socialism its a piss poor one when you consider the events of September 16, 1920.

    I do want the government removed and replaced. But not with socialists, with pro-peace constitutionalists, like Ron Paul.
