story from Breitbart
by Christian Toto

'Occupy Unmasked' Earns Standing Ovation at RightOnline
 

The RightOnline conference in Las Vegas has debuted a new film called "Occupy Unmasked".

The film attempts to depict the true "violent nature of the Occupy Wall Street movement".

Video below.



Director Stephen K. Bannon's "Occupy Unmasked" debuted Friday to a standing ovation at the annual RightOnline conference in Las Vegas.

The upcoming documentary revealed the true story behind the violent nature of the Occupy Wall Street movement, an inconvenient truth the media has done all it could to hide. Smartly packaged and damning in detail, the film featured the late Andrew Breitbart and several Breitbart News staffers explaining the movement’s radical roots and anger at our capitalistic system.

We watch Occupiers admit their socialist policies, learn how this “grassroots” effort was massaged by the media and witness the escalation of mayhem caused by their tent city protests.



How many votes will this cost Obama ?

how 'bout other Democrats ?





The trailer for the new film produced by Citizens United and directed by Stephen K. Bannon. "Occupy Unmasked" goes deep into the "Occupy" movement and exposes its origins as well as the radical ideas behind "income inequality" that has become the centerpiece of the Obama re-election effort. The film is due to be released Spring 2012.

None. I think most people have already made up their minds who they want to vote for and won't be changing it. I dont think that the truth of what is behind 'occupy' will be able to seep in with most Obama supporters.

I really want to see this. As far as whether it will hurt Obama? Most of his supporters would vote for him if he killed and ate babies every day. That may be a bit much, however most folks vote for their party regardless of who is running. They voted Republican for 10 years by God and they will vote republican until they die. That is why we usually wind up in these messes. They vote party lines not on issues.

I am really curious to see this movie though and what slant they put on both sides.

The sneak peek also showed Breitbart huddling with investigative video journalist James O’Keefe, the gadfly who foiled the government-supported Acorn organization armed with only a video camera and a hunger for the truth.


Haven't we realized yet that nothing but lies come from these "journalists"? Or is it just that you're willing to accept lies to paint the world you want?

As far as any inconvenient truth the media tried to hide...the only thing they tried to hide is the fact that Occupy is NOT violent.

So, a biased report shows the true nature of the Occupy movement? I could make a video of the worst Republicans/Democrats/other group in America and put it forth as the truth. I just need to edit out all the true upstanding individuals leaving the real dirt bags in the film. Show it to a crowd in which it confirms their bias and instant standing ovation.

Seriously, this is a propaganda film meant to discredit a movement. It's like the films that showed Tea Party members to be all racist hicks or overweight people on scooters paid for by the government that the left leaning held up as the truth.

America crumbles while conservatives argue with liberals.

At least the people protesting are trying to fix things.

Honestly... Breitbart, O'Keefe, Bannon.... there's a group of fair unbiased investigative journalists for you. I read the sourced article and watched the trailer and if there was a smidge of unbiased language in either of them I might have even been willing to watch the documentary when it is released, but the likelyhood of anything unbiased in the docu is so slim that it totally turns me off to it. The fact is that I would feel the same way if it came from the extreme left. Extremism in either direction is a dangerous thing. How about fair reporting showing the good and the bad of any topic?

I have to wonder though, at first the Occupiers were unwashed unemployed bum hippies, now they are violent unwashed unemployed bum hippies... how many more nasty monikers are going to be placed upon a group of folks who, like them or hate them, are at least out there trying to make a difference in this world the best way they know how instead of being armchair complainers like most of us?

It's hard to completely reject Breitbart's footage, Kali. It shows people engaging in property damage.

Then again, I'll grant you that it is possible that said people are someone other than Occupy. I know you've said that the Black Bloc tend to follow Occupy around, but they aren't considered welcome by the group.

Lies? Haven't we seen the communist party members, the Neo Nazis, socialists, communist sympathizers, druggies, and even the Unions, and so much more involved with the Occupy movement? I'm sorry but you are just not that convincing. Occupy is a combo of every leftist faction available. These people all came out as soon as you know who got elected. Every leftist, communist, socialist, anarchist, and so on came out of the freakin woodwork.

Actually now that the camps are gone it's much more narrowed down. It's never been denied that there are communists, anarchists...leftists, but there's more than that. There's people that don't identify politically at all, people who just want to take a stand and all are always welcome.

Left isn't a dirty word no matter how much you try to make it so and to be honest I'm sick of your bigotry and your lazy and often delusional assumptions. Many on the Right can't identify with Occupy and that is okay, what is not okay is twisting it into something evil or stupid just because you don't understand.

It speaks a lot toward the integrity of those who consider themselves on the Right (not all) that you participate in such negativity and rely on sources lacking even the smallest tinge of integrity such as Breitbart and those still working in his name. It's no wonder that you can't see anything genuine.

I hope that in my own case at least, you're able to recognise that I wasn't saying that being Leftist was something incriminating or inherently negative, Kali.

My only issue is when there is a tendency to implicitly view things through a strongly Marxist lens, and then try to claim that being pro-unionist (as one example) isn't necessarily a Communist value, but that everybody should be pro-unionist, universally, because that's just the way things are.

In other words, there is a tendency for Occupy to associate social justice as a generic or universal concept, with values that primarily exist or are talked about within the Marxist paradigm specifically; which therefore subsequently implies that social justice cannot exist without Marxism.

As I've also said, however, this is usually implicit or unconscious. Most Occupiers are sufficiently deeply steeped in Marx' ideology that it is completely automatic for them to have that view of reality. They don't deserve to be attacked for it, but I think they do need to have it pointed out.

If, hypothetically speaking, I went to an Occupy event, and the majority of the people there were radical anarcho-Communists, I'd want to know about it. The reason why I need to know about it, is so that I can engage in informed consent about whether or not to stay or participate. In some cases, I might genuinely think, "Great! Here's some Communists. I can have some really stimulating conversations with these people, and can possibly come to a new understanding about some issues."

In other cases, however, depending on what it is they're doing, or even just how I'm feeling on a given day, I'm not necessarily going to want to associate with that particular group.

The bottom line is that I need honest, accurate information in order to be able to make decisions about what I want to do.

I need to go into this concept in a little more depth, I think.

The Right tend to consciously identify themselves as the Right. A conservative will usually say, "I'm a Capitalist," or, "I'm a conservative."

The Left, on the other hand, do not do that. I've only ever seen a single Communist, who was willing to openly identify themselves as such. A Communist speaker begins with the implicit assumption that the only reason why their audience is not also Communist, is either because of lack of education, or misunderstanding. A Communist generally allows no possibility for the idea that his opinion might be in any way incorrect; and hence, the reason why he doesn't identify himself as an adherent of one particular ideology among many, is because he does not acknowledge that other ideologies have legitimacy.

This, I think, is also the reason why Occupy's websites feature material which is written very strongly from the perspective of a Marxist value system, specifically, while very often not realising that they are doing so. They don't view themselves as being proponents of Marxism as a specific ideology; they see themselves as simply being advocates of the way things should be, in universal terms. Peter Joseph expresses this attitude both explicitly, and very strongly, in the third Zeitgeist film.

So the thinking is:-

"No, I'm not a Communist. It's just that Communism coincidentally happens to be in line with the way things are, in universal terms. Marx was right."

Right wing Republican propaganda at its finest. I wonder how much money the Koch brothers paid for that?

And how did those right wing film makers find time to make this amongst all their radical Christian propaganda, gay hate films and pro-life BS?

Doesn't really matter anyway, it's a complete waste of time and money. The only people watching that are already brainwashed. It won't help to "persuade" anyone of anything.

A bunch of old, out-of-touch Republicans cannot fight against the growing tide of youthful energy and the calls for social justice. These are people who can presumably barely use email (maybe they think it's the work of the Devil or something) when you compare their campaigning to the modern methods used by Democrats. How do they expect to win over people with crap like this?

I think what you are getting stuck on with Marxism is that Marx captured with words all the underlying tones of revolution which is in fact universal and predictable. If you take for instance, a small country where the people have never heard of Karl Marx, they are oppressed in some form or fashion and they rebel, they protest whatever it is they feel is holding them down/exploiting them and they will by nature sound like Marxists. It is cause and effect, nothing more.

If you are truly interested and can find an Occupy near you, do not rely on an supporter/pro or any naysayer/con to make up your mind, go see for yourself and yes actually talk to the people. Though there are communists there, they do not believe in Statist Communism and there is a huge difference. Marxists today always part ways with Marx when it comes to the Authoritarian or State control.

I'm in Australia. As far as I know, Occupy doesn't really exist in Australia. From memory there was a small attempt to start something in Melbourne, but the police stepped on it very quickly, and it fizzled out.

I think part of the reason for it not having traction, is because Australia still has one of the strongest economies on the planet at the moment. There's a lot less desperation here, so consequently there are less people who feel inclined to hit the pavement.

Another reason is that Australians are also probably the most politically apathetic, and one of the least intelligent national populations on Earth, and I've had this verified by international travellers I've spoken to. Most Aussies don't have either the brains or the empathy required for political action.

Gee another hit piece against a protest movement that wants to change the status quo?

That's original...


I can't wait to see it, should be a good laugh. Although I agree that Occupy got hijacked at some point, the movement and the ideas behind the movement are still good ones.

But leave it to washington and the pundits to politicize everything these days.

Occupy Wall St. began with a few posts from www.adbusters.org

To claim anything else is a falsehood.

EDIT: The Anarcho-Communism at my local occupy protest seemed a lot like direct democracy...and since it was in Alabama we had more Ron Paul supporters than anything.

you continually try to devide people into left right camps,
i have pulled you up before,

breit bart releases "talking points" similar to the ones the chineeze "50 cent army" uses,
what to argue,
what to troll
what to do if someone points out the errors in the talking points,
how to derail a thread

you do realise that bringing talking points from another web sight and posting them here as if they were you own thoughts is against T&Cs

you know from many previous conversations that occupy is not political.
not run by or for any politician.

are you using ATS to push propaganda?
is it cognitive disodence?
do you not realise this makes you look like you have an agenda?

this is an obviously silly question but dont you think that trying to label a peaceful movement as violent is the MSMs job?
they get paid for it at least

as previously stated,
this is obviously propaganda

coming from you as an op yet again
i would have though you knew better



is ATS being taken over by breit barts 50 cent army?

you are welcome to your view and your op

but you will again get no stars and no flags from me
