"Go get a job right after you take a bath." - Newt Gingrich recalls his chicken hawk youth and revives the Dirty Hippie taunt, lovingly highlighted by Andrew Breitbart.The recent criminal violence by Police Officers directed at the #Occupy Protesters is merely a symptom of the Overall Disease which plagues America; The Infestation of the Nation by the 1%. I use the terms very purposefully because what we have seen besides Criminal Behavior by the Police (at the direction of their 1%) is a orchestrated campaign of dehumanization from Rightwing Propagandists and servants of the Plutocracy designed to create conditions were conservatives support violence against the 99%.
It's a daily barrage of loaded terms, bigoted labels, and dehumanizating castigation of the #Occupy Movement which has seeped into and now permeates every rightwing blog and news site. It's also a very old tactic. And if you should happen to be so skeptical that the Rightwing Media of this Nation is being pulled/directed/massaged towards vilifying and lying about OWS, you are not paying attention.
Here is a Lobbyist memorandum to the American Bankers Association highlighting ways to target OWS, including the monitoring of Open Source Intel (#Occupy Social Media Sites) to manufacture smears and plan counter-protest actions and strategizing the Messaging War against OWS. All for the low, low price of $850,000 USC.
It should have been clear early on that the 1% wasn't going to allow their control of this country subside merely because their inhuman greed, evil crimes, theft, oppression and murder had pushed the total income of 150 Million Americans under that of 400 people. And that a mere 0.1% (One-Tenth of the One Percent) make HALF of the Capital Gains Income in this Nation.
The 1% has always had willing defenders who will lie, obfuscate, confuse, smear, distort and when that fails just call for outright violence.
"Remember the lesson from my book: It just took a few shootings at Kent State to shut that down for good," - Ann Coutler.The Process of dehumanization is almost complete. From World Net Daily writer Phil Elmore,
"Call out the National Guard. Turn on the fire hoses. Send bulldozers. Bring flame-throwers, for pity's sake. Men and women who give a damn about their country, wearing Hazmat suits and respiratory gear, empowered by the lawful government of this nation, should be marching in ranks on every Obamaville this very moment, prepared to beat with truncheons and shoot with rubber bullets every last filthy hippie. The "occupiers" are criminals and terrorists."Here's a twittter rundown from John Nolte, Editor-in-chief of Andrew Breitbart's Big Government Site. His tweets read as a justification of violence and oppression and are cheerfully supported by the diseased Rightwingers. A Nolte tweet from Nov 17, "#OWS #OccupyWallStreet is a domestic terrorist organization. End of Story." A Nolte tweet from Nov 20, "Why do people say 'pepper-spraying defenseless Occupiers' as though it's a bad thing?"
Because at the core of this Battle is; Who shall control the Country? The 1% and their Rightwing Guardians or the 99%? Which side are you on? The 99% or Karl Rove's? We ARE the 99%.
"No you're not! No you're not! No you're not! No you're not! No you're not! If you believe in the right of the First Amendment to free speech then you demonstrate it by shutting up," Karl Rove...
