The dynamic is changing. The Occupy Wall Street movement has Mayors across the country moving into more violent confrontations each day. This past weekend has been no exception. In New York we have a mayor that thinks he is above the law of the land. His ego is inflated by thoughts of being the guardian of public safety and health. To the point where he thinks he can control the people, the press and his own city council with Gestapo like tactics from his police force. One other in history tried doing all that. The world still remembers. Only thing missing Mr. Mayor is your little mustache.
I am not surprised though because the dynamic of the movement is changing. I’m not sure if it is for the better or worse. The camps have overshadowed the movements voice and has become the focal point This is not good. We cannot effect change when the focus is on cleaning parks. The camps have become magnets that attract folks with other life agendas. The dilemma is the occupiers cannot turn them away. They to steal the spotlight away from the cause.
The above picture tells the story of the dynamic. In it we have a cowering protester, unarmed and obviously out gunned and a cop wielding a nightstick beating on the poor guy. The cop is obviously out of control. He is obviously not someone to be trusted with multiple weapons to harm unarmed citizenry, or is this by design? Only Mr. Bloomberg knows for sure.
What I do know for a fact is this cop and other cops like him are not representative of the nation’s police forces. He is a poster boy for steroid rage. In the 1930’s he would be wearing a brown shirt with a swastika. The boy would be a Jew. Get the message Bloomberg? Your cops are the very thing that epitomizes the hatred Jews throughout the world have in their hearts. They were beaten, they were arrested and then they were gassed. For a Jew, Mayor Bloomberg you show no respect for your culture when you allow this sort of thing to take place on your watch.
Confrontational diplomacy such as that which happened this weekend can only lead to one thing. An escalation of violence. Is that what the Mayors want? Are they so maniacal about pissing in the park that they want to see their cops turn into targets? This will happen. Not by the protesters either. There are many across this country that watch the freedom gauge. You would not want these people angry and they are beginning to get that way. They are the people who will never allow Hitleristic forms of government to ever take place again. Do we really want to see these people on our streets? I think not.
The methods being used for crowd control today are born out of urban terrorist training methods. Protesters are not urban terrorists. They are common people angered at an unbalanced system run by greed and corruption at all levels. You can not defeat them through overwhelming force. Such tactical force used on unarmed civilians will result in only one thing. An escalation of counter measures. Do the bullets need to start flying before America’s Mayors wake up and smell the coffee? Come out of your ivory towers mayors and speak to the people. You all claim to be on the side of the Occupy movements call for change yet you do not appear before them. Instead, you send in your enforcers to beat and hospitalize the very people who voted you into office. You spend the city’s tax revenue to counter law suits brought by the people and you lose. Over and over again. Would not the money be better spent fixing the damn pot holes on city streets?
We need to change our strategy occupiers before the bullets start flying and trust me when I say that scenario is already written in stone. We need to do what unthinking Mayors and police chiefs won’t. We need to take this thing of ours (John Gotti would be proud of me for using this saying) to Washington and let the thunder be heard. We need to do this or prepare for bloody streets. No one will win that battle and no sane person wants to see that battle take place.
OccupyWallStreet has started the march to DC. Along the way their supporters are joining in solidarity and assisting in many ways. It is heart warming to see. I wish I was able to be with them, unfortunately my government killed me years ago by exposing me to Agent Orange. I have 4 of the 5 killer diseases caused by dioxin poisoning. I have personal experience with stupidity in government obviously but it has not altered the love I have for my country and it’s people. That, I will still use all of my power and skills to protect.
We are the 99%. We will prevail and we will exact change. Fight us, you look bad to the world. Respect us and we change the world together. Ignore us? Expect us.
From another gone before us –
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! – Patrick Henry 1775
Amen. -=CV=- 2011
