We've been watching videos of the "Occupy 'Wherever'" protesters who sound like they have no idea why they are out there amidst the crowds, sleeping on the streets and exercising their free speech (even if it makes no sense). We've had a good laugh over some of the useful idiots and their bongo drums. There are others who are able to articulate their reasons, some of which we might even agree with (a little). But behind the supposedly "grassroots" movement, there are large organizations with agendas:
How grassroots can this movement be when a simple scroll through the internet reveals that Big Labor and Big Community Organization are openly supporting it, organizing it, taking donations for it and drafting petitions for it? Some of those organizations are MoveOn, SEIU, AFL-CIO, National Nurses United, Working Families Party, Van Jones' Rebuild the Dream, Adbusters, US Day of Rage, Take the Square, October 2011, We are the 99%, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, CREDO and MoveOn's very own Avaaz.org -- the international progenitor of the Arab Spring.
This video and article published in American Thinker gives us something to think about. Is Marxism taking over Main Street?

The Revolutionaries' Revenge"America has to wake up to this new reality: the Cold War battle between
communism and capitalism is back, only this time it's on our front porch.
It went underground in the 70s, got an education, put on a suit, bought a
house and had a couple of kids. Then it used the schools to educate new
foot soldiers and manipulated the pop culture to indoctrinate the next
generation of fellow travelers who seek to create a new world order in the
image of old world Marxism." Read the entire article, "The Revolutionaries'

The media are mistakenly characterizing the Occupy Wall Street movement as unemployed Millennials with a legitimate gripe against Wall Street consistent with the Tea Party, or as a rag-tag group of unemployed stoners with no coherent message, not to be taken too seriously. After spending hours interviewing protesters in Oakland, California, both characterizations are way off base. If either scenario were apt, these folks would be marching on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and storming Congress. Instead, they're taking on Wall Street and storming the homes of the wealthy and the buildings of large corporations.Do you think the author of the article is exaggerating the situation...or does she have it right?
It's Mourning in America, friends. Wake up to the fetid smell of Marxism taking over Main Street, intent on crushing Wall Street.
Each person interviewed in Oakland had the same story to tell, and if you listen carefully to the video from the main stream press, it's this: capitalism is the root of all evil.
According to the Occupiers, Big Business has corrupted our government, corporations exploit workers, the rich control everything, the top 1% own somewhere between 30% and 60% of all wealth, the disparity between the rich and the remaining 99% is growing and the property-owning bourgeoisie is responsible for that. The workers need to take control of the means of production and mount a revolution to overthrow capitalism by expropriating property from the bourgeoisie. The workers need to rise up (fist pump), redistribute capital more equitably and establish a Marxist paradise -- slaying the neo-liberalism dragon and enthroning the worker, all in the name of "economic justice."
We can pretend this isn't the case by sticking our heads in the sand, but facts are facts. When thousands say they want to overthrow capitalism and redistribute property, take them at their word, especially when their chants, signs, words, actions, websites and blogs all support that. And when they are as highly-organized, highly-funded, highly-networked, highly-mobilized and highly-motivated as the Wall Street Occupiers are, then we need to be afraid, be very afraid. Read more...
