Occupy Oakland Out of Control

The Occu-Pests are beginning to realize that while they’ve been camped out in Zuccotti Park, and elsewhere around the country, they’ve merely provided a distraction from other news that has permitted banking to go on as usual.  As I reported here over the week-end, the actions of Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, and JP Morgan should have caught the attention of anybody concerned about the continuing threat of a US debt crisis, but everyone is distracted with Gaddafi’s death, and several other over-hyped issues, including the Occu-Pests.  The problem is that the Occu-Pests are mostly Marxists, being organized by people friendly to the administration that is actually carrying out the very policies the Occupiers seem to oppose.

What they haven’t figured out, yet, is that they are being used as a distraction.  The longer they sit in their tents and march in the various venues around the country, they’re being made into the bad guys because they truly are a nuisance, and some lesser proportion of their number are prone to violent acts and vile behaviors.  In short, they’re shooting themselves in the foot.  Each day they remain on station, they are decreasing their impact and merely giving cover to bad government policies.

Last Friday, on Rolling Stone, one of these Occu-Pests laments that “Washington still doesn’t get it.” I’ve got news for the poor fool: Washington “Gets it” quite well, but you, on the other hand, do not.  Washington understands very well that the longer you occupy Wall Street, the more cover they will have.  At the end of his article,   Matt Taibbi posits this:

“If anyone thought OWS has already done its job, and Washington has gotten the message already, think again. They’re not going to change until the protesters force them to change, it seems.”

This is maniacally self-aggrandizing, and it’s also delusional.  “Force?”  Does Matt Taibbi really believe that they can “force them to change?”  They number in the hands-full of thousands, but even a mass march of perhaps a million or more Tea Party types was unable to “force them to change.”  Or is Mr. Taibbi admitting of a willingness to use actual violence?  If he is, he has even less grounding in reality than I had suspected.  There is a simple fact that Mr. Taibbi doesn’t understand, but he eventually will, one way or the other:  The protesters at OWS are being used.  Their numbers are insignificant to anything but a publicity stunt, a photo op, and a distraction.  This sort of protest will have no effect against the greater will of the American people.  The very people who have helped to create the OWS movement have been using them as cover for their own agenda right along, but the OWS folk have been too naive to realize it.  George Soros, who is indirectly behind much of this, must be laughing at the harrumphing going on among the OWS folks about their lack of impact.  They’re having exactly the impact they were supposed to have:  While they protest, Soros and his pals are looting the future of this country and the OWS people shriek at Wall Street.

It’s sad in one sense while fitting in another that as they protest for notions none of them seem too firmly to grasp, they’re being played by the very people who have organized them there.  They still believe they’re an organic protest, but it’s laughable to suggest, and besides, to the degree there is any real grass-roots activism, it is being steered by those who have stage-managed this entire side-show.  Now here’s the real problem they face, these poor Occu-pests: The day is quickly approaching when they will have out-lived their usefulness, if it hasn’t happened already, and then the people who helped organize them are going to make examples of them in the name of “maintaining order.”  Watch and see what happens.  If these poor fools stick around very long, the powers who brought them forth will use agent provocateurs to instigate violence, and it will be made to look like the Pests themselves initiated it.  George Soros reportedly met with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly in New York, so it’s possible that the hammer is about to fall on the hapless Occu-Pests.  I’m not certain that this isn’t part of what caused the riot Tuesday night at Occupy Oakland. I think the natives are getting restless, and the provocateurs are pushing things.  This is how they will create the spectacle in which the Occu-Pests will be sacrificed.  It’s sad to think that these poor knuckleheads have been so thoroughly duped by their leadership, but there you have it.  There’s a reason they’re known as “useful idiots.”
