The mainstream media continues to attempt to paint the Occupy Wall Street crowd as a bunch of iProtesters, carrying their Apple products around the parks and protesting the unfair aspects of Wall Street and our financial system with the inference that the monied crowd imposes their will on them and that the mistakes they made are society’s fault. The problem with their argument of course is that middle class America wants to sympathize with part of their cause but empathy fades when the videos of radicals making outrageous speeches demanding changes in line with 1906’s Marxist ideology.
Fast forward to yesterday’s news cycle and the reality that the MSM is deliberately bypassing the negative stories and focusing on turning the Occupy movements into a political positive for the leftist agenda and the President’s re-election becomes glaringly apparent. Yet in yesterday’s news a story from Reuters should alert everyone as to what is next for the OWS movement, as it is the most dangerous story of the week:
The story by Ben Berkowitz has a few major highlights which tie into other news stories about the “protests” and should alarm any sane individual. The first excerpt from the story is a warning shot that was fired without anyone paying attention to the implications:
Any loss of the limelight, especially when the onset of cold weather has already started to reduce the ranks of protesters prepared to camp out overnight in lower Manhattan, could dampen the momentum of the movement.
“Without the oxygen to fuel their fire they’re very much at risk of losing relevance,” said Daniel Tisch, chairman of the Global Alliance of Public Relations & Communication Management, a confederation of national PR societies.
Let those two sentences sink in deep. If they feel they are beginning to lose relevance, odds are the next course of action will be more flamboyant and based on the history of movements supported by Marxist radicals, usually violent. The first tease of this occurring was provided by an over-dramatization of the arrests in Oakland as the police attempted to clear the park near city hall and of course, the propaganda flowed like a Radio Moscow World Service broadcast from the 1980’s:
The story linked above from The Blaze claims excessive force was used by the Oakland police to force the Occupy Oakland movement out of the park. The problem with their argument however is that the mainstream media initially reported the story on CBS radio yesterday morning at 9 a.m. ET and the audio clearly demonstrated that the police gave a final warning before moving into the park and apparently gave the protesters a full week to come into compliance. They were not being denied their right to protest, but the park needed cleaning and overnight camping is prohibited.Unfortunately for the city of Oakland, those aspects of the story are minimized and only visual images of crying protesters being arrested are broadcast by the radical blogosphere and extremist media.
Thus begging the question as the Reuters article highlighted:
“People know what the general storyline is,” said Senia Barragan, a protester from New Jersey acting as a spokeswoman for the occupation when not working on a doctorate at Columbia University. “I think they’re moving on to other stories.”
The useless idiots are now beginning to realize the original novelty is wearing off and that is why this statement from the story should be considered our final warning:
Experts on social movements have said the protesters need a “second act” of sorts as fatigue sets in and as cold weather starts to descend on New York and other protest sites.
If “uh-oh” is the reader’s initial reaction, then that is a sound logical emotion. The second act is being hinted at throughout the actions and news stories not receiving vast coverage by the mainstream media, and yes I am including Fox News in that mix:
The new storyline is now in play. The first story above is from CBS in Atlanta and the “path to escalation” is clearly the choice of the extremists who wish to use the idiots before they disperse in frustration, as “innocent” protesters getting tasered, sprayed with tear gas, or beaten by police is exactly the story that the left needs to gain sympathy and prominence. By engaging in this course of action to provoke a violent response then hiding within then the crowd of college morons thinking that they are part of the cause. This is a typical strategy engaged in by the radicals and terrorists of the 1960’s thus why the protester’s ignorance of the members within their movement is dangerous to the point of including a risk to their healthy and survival.
The second story from Reuters gives the world a snapshot as to the new time line for the next course of action:
If they are successful in baiting the police around the world into a violent course of action during the G20 meetings and obtaining massive coverage on the compliant networks then the movement will be rejuvenated. The idea that initiating violence to insure massive support and coverage of protests is nothing new as during the 1960’s and 1970’s the Communist and so-called liberation movements deliberately engaged law enforcement to create sympathy and publicity for their causes. Thus why I think the fading news coverage, warnings not just in Atlanta but in other “occupy” cities is not just a warning, but a threat and the most dangerous story of the week. As the G20 meetings begin on November 3rd, prepare to see one last desperate act by the radicals within the Occupy groups to remain relevant, even if it costs the lives of some innocent dupes who just cut class at NYU to hold a cardboard sign in support of the global Marxist cause.
