Occupy Wall Street Protesters Suspicious Of Plan To Move Them From Park To Clean
Maybe if George Soros told them to move they would listen! (You like that little way I worked in George Soros and these protests, right? Yeah, I know you did!) In all seriousness though, worrying that they will not let you back in after they clean is not something that they can control anyway. The city could decide to change where the protesters are allowed to be, and they would be within their rights to do so. The reason I do not believe this will happen and the protesters are losing it over nothing is because of the uproar it would cause. There are more and more people coming to these protests every single day, and if they were to move them after trying to trick them into moving there would certainly be an escalation in the way these protests are held, something that the city of New York does not need to happen.
But I did find one thing humorous about why the protesters are saying they should not have to move out at all for the park to be cleaned. Emilio Montilla, 29, a laid-off teacher’s assistant, said “This is the cleanest protest I’ve ever witnessed,” and “We take care of ourselves. We’re self-sufficient.” (AP) When I read this I thought I was going to fall off my chair and break something. This is unbelievable! Have the rest of you seen the pictures from the scene? Have you noticed the garbage laying around the park that needs to be picked up. First off, they should be picking up their own trash because the city should not be paying for this, but because they are not they should not question why they have to move and just move. Also, if this was the cleanest protest this gentlemen has ever seen, maybe he should take a look at other protest where the people really do take it upon themselves to clean up after themselves.
A discussion has to be had in New York about how long these protesters will be able to stay there and in what capacity. Obviously this is costing the tax payers money, which I would think the protesters would care about since the everyday tax payer would be one of those “99%” that they are always yelling and screaming about. There is much more going on here than meets the eye, and we are finally getting some kind of clarity on how these protests got moving. If the information is legit, and Soros DID in fact have a hand in this, New York has to sit down and think about telling these people to leave. That might not be what all of you out there want, but something far worse is in store if Soros has his dirty hands in it.
According to Reuters, who is not even close to being a sympathetic Conservative news wire, is reporting today that Soros has indirect financial links between himself and also the group that is taking a large amount of credit for these protests and getting them started, Adbusters. Adbusters is a radical anti-capitalist movement that Soros would just love to team up with, and looks like he has, according to Reuters news service. If this is true and the result of financial help from Soros made these protests happen, we are in for much more that not even New York City will be willing to deal with. Those who are out there protesting the Fed know very well who George Soros is and the kind of financial mess he is able to make happen, even on his own.
Those out there protesting will say that Soros and Adbusters have nothing to do with why people are mad, but the psychology of it is very simple. When people see other people out protesting and the numbers grow, they will be more likely to join that group if they believe in the underlying cause or not. This is why we see people who have no idea why they are there are those protesting who would never in their life stand next to a movement that was pushing an anti-capitalist agenda. The fact that the crowds drew the people in is not a mistake, it is what is supposed to happen during these kinds of protests. We can look at other nations like Egypt as a guide to this. Do you think all of those people protesting the government in Egypt all came out together because they realized they were not being treated fairly? Of course not! It was an incremental increase of people who saw other people and wanted the regime to leave the country. They did not care who took over or even why they were mad in the first place when it came right down to it, it was all about the mob, and the mob, as is said, rules.
We can now take Greece and London as a model in this case because this is where these protests are heading. Those who are pulling the strings, in my opinion, want the New York City Mayor to move these protesters and start something they may not be able to keep under control. That will show the world, in their minds, that the people of America are willing to fight for a change just like those in other parts of the world. Of course, we are talking about something that would take months to happen, but when you have anti-capitalist and Socialist movements spearheading what we are seeing, nothing is impossible. This is will draw even more people to the streets, not because they agree with the protesters but because they feel the protesters were treated unfairly. Not only that, but you will have the people from society who want to take advantage of the mob rule in general who come out to start trouble than for no other reason than because they can.
If you are for or against Occupy, this should not matter. What should matter is that these protests are kept non-violent and not funded in any way by those who the protesters should be against. The people are starting to realize and be told the whole story behind this movement, and they will not support it if it turns in another direction, a violent direction. Those who are sympathetic to the cause will tell me that I am “stupid” or I am an “idiot” as some already have, but you cannot explain away way a man like George Soros just so happens to be sending money to a group that is largely responsible for the protests getting started in the first place. Remember, you have to have a group that start it and get other people to join. If that was funded by the man who has been blamed for taking down people financial at will, then the protesters should be turning their protesting to the man they would not be standing next to. Of course, if you asked the individuals at Wall Street who are protesting who George Soros is, they will probably have no idea. This is why this could be very dangerous.
The best thing for the protesters to do at this point is move and let the park be cleaned and go from there. I do not believe the city of New York will try to pull a fast one because they have to be considering the backlash they will take over trying to move these protesters to another site indefinitely. The problems that could and probably would arise from that is not what the city wants on television. Of course, if the protesters put up a fight over being moved in the first place when the city has no plans to move them for good, it will make the protesters look like an angry mob, something the majority of the American people will not stand for and will not support. All in all, this could turn out to be much to do about nothing or it could turn confrontational, but in my mind that will be all up to the protesters and their willingness to move for a short time.
