I'm the one falling for tired propaganda?
Just feel free to deny the truth when it's right there in front of you, especially when it doesn't fit your narrative, and what narrative would that be? Defending the thieves who sacked this country from any and all opposition?
The fingerprints of the preeminent funder of the activist Left today, George Soros, are all over the anti-American “Occupy Wall Street” movement.
The seventh-wealthiest person in America (net worth: $22 billion), Soros has publicly embraced Occupy Wall Street and financially supports a left-wing group that is funneling money to the movement.
As I note in my new book Subversion Inc., this Communist sympathizer co-founded the ultra-secretive Democracy Alliance, a billionaires’ club that wants to radically transform America. He has said that European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now” and favors American decline. Soros, a currency manipulator with an insider trading conviction, praises Red China effusively, saying the totalitarian nation has “a better functioning government than the United States.”
The nonprofit organization that has taken Soros’s money is the Alliance for Global Justice. It is managing donations benefiting the anarchists, socialists, communists, empty-headed Naomi Klein followers, and hippies now occupying Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan. As of Nov. 2, the Alliance reported $206,000 in donations earmarked for Occupy Wall Street. The Wall Street Journal estimates Occupy Wall Street has taken in a grand total of $500,000 so far but that doesn’t appear to take into account non-monetary donations such as food, power generators, clothing, shoes, camping gear, and sleeping bags.
Alliance for Global Justice is a “fiscal sponsor” which means that it serves as a financial clearinghouse for causes that haven’t incorporated themselves as nonprofit organizations. Donors write a check to the Alliance and are then able to deduct the donations from their income tax. Fiscal sponsors take a percentage of donations as administrative fees and then pass on the rest to the cause favored by the donor.
Alliance for Global Justice has accepted grants from Soros’s charity, the Open Society Institute ($100,000 since 2004) and from the radical Tides Foundation ($60,000 since 2004) which allows high-profile donors to give secretly to radical causes.
A hotbed of anti-American activity, the Alliance takes money from the most extreme left-wing philanthropies operating in America today. The Alliance has accepted grants from the (pro-Fidel Castro) Arca Foundation ($185,000 since 2001), General Service Foundation ($165,000 since 2001), and Foundation for Deep Ecology ($30,000 since 2000), a group of environmental fundamentalists who regard human beings as the number one threat to planet earth.
I'm hoping I'm wrong, too. It's not set it stone - it doesn't have to be that way. I'm only going on the history that these things generally have played out with in most places. As long as tempers continue to flare, and people continue to attack the "opposition" thinking they are defending their own side, the probability of it happening that way is much higher.
Thank you. here I was, thinking we're ideological adversaries!

How many times do we repeat deny ignorance on this site how much do we repeat the media deceives us at every level. But yet i see people on this thread really either showing there true colors or being ignorant and complacent with whats going on. You all may be able to sit and type your little rants and raves about how they effected your work week and bothered you and your day. You all sound just like the bankers and the rich elitist's that dictate our lives and how we should live. You don't sound like people who want to stand up for yourselves or your rights so while those of you who think its all over and OWS didn't accomplish $h!t you need to STOP watching the dam corrupt news on it and participate or at least check it out yourself. The media portray's it as a bunch of loonies but they do that to Ron Paul also so go figure wake up people stop turning on each other and work together as a whole we can achieve our goals together divided we give them hope. Love you all Merry Christmas

You have no idea what you are talking about. Kinda invalidates your arguement.
Keep on doing what you are doing, you will not survive the spring. Time to grow up my friend and actually see what is going on around you. Good luck. Hope you have enough humility to ask for help when you need it.edit on 22-12-2011 by PapaKrok because: (no reason given)

The Tea Party HAS put people into office and it's been at least marginally effective. Boehner has been heard to lament his having to deal with the freshman TP people more than once. It's what is making him and his ilk something less than popular among those who would once have supported him blindly for the (r) next to his name.
In pointing to one bad actor on the TP side, you open a can of worms I'd almost call bottomless at this point. Do you really want to go there as a tactic to protect Occupy and OWS in as general a set of terms as you use to attack the right? Bad idea...if you ask me, but I won't say more on that. I shouldn't need to by now.
I've never really condemned OWS/Occupy protesters themselves. They are good, decent and energetic people. I may not agree with everything, but if we wait until we all agree, out children's 4-5th generation down will still be debating on holographic ether chips or whatever they have by then.
The problem was only in how they tossed the criminals they attracted. The Tea Party attracted them to. It didn't make TP protesters wrong and it doesn't make OWS wrong on that basis alone. Indeed.
