The term “Day(s) of Rage” is the product of Chicago’s Weathermen, led by Obama workmate Bill Ayers and cohabitants.
I hate to say this, but crony crapitalist Wall Street, who has destroyed trillions in our wealth (not theirs) needs to be raged at.I don't share the motives of the international left who are organizing this, but they are targeting the right people.
Wall Street didn't do anything that Pennslyvania Ave. didn't legalize AND regulate. Wall Street may have been the "hands" of the meltdown, but its' "brains" have ALWAYS lived in DC.
I'll go put on my dunce cap now.
FJ,Yes, we have two "entities" to rail against.
That poster looks like something Comrade Stalin would have commissioned. True capitalism hasn't been practiced in this country for a long, long time. It has been subverted by moral turpitude, cronyism, and all kinds of Wall Street indiscretions have either been regulated or sanctioned by the federal government. There is an incestuous relationship here as Wall Street represents some of the biggest contributors to political campaigns, including Obama. Remember, what really started the ball rolling was Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac going down the tubes mere weeks after Bwaney Fwank and Chris Dodd of the oversight committees assured the American public all was well. However the Left does not merely want to confront and correct the excesses. The Left wants to destroy any vestige of capitalism and impose a completely globalist, Marxist economy. Of course, the net effect will be the same as replacing Batista with Castro or the Shah with the Ayatollah. The Left's solution will only take us from the frying pan to the fire. Yes, Wall Street should be confronted but not by these people.
It will be interesting to see what happens, How many show up; how they act; what they destroy (or not);...I had not realized it was on Constitution Day.DebbieRight Truthhttp://www.righttruth.typepad.com
Thanks AOW, good conversation. I'm linking back. Excellent Dick Morris video.
Yes, we have two "entities" to rail against.Actually, I believe that there's only one, and he's just pointing his finger somewhere else making him into a scapegoat.
Does it offend your delicate sensibilities.Peaceful assembly show disrespect to the Constitution? Keep digging.
Where is the rage directed at Nancy Pelosi? Excerpt:Pelosi’s Net Worth Skyrockets More Than $13 Million In One Year…
The proletarian on that picture is making himself a sward. This Day of Rage thing has a very strong potential to backfire, and also to create problems for the current Administration.
I'm no fan of Wall Street but Obama and the rest of the left is orchestrating this to detract from what an abysmal failure they have been on the economy and jobs. And...Does it offend your delicate sensibilities.it appears to be working.
Magggie,Thanks for linking.I've only recent "discovered" those Dick Morris videos.
Edge of the Sandbox,Yes, the imagery is interesting. And here's a conundrum: I've seen similar imagery for Atlas Shrugged. I wonder if the designer of the poster deliberately made that connection.
Chuck,Yes, the demonization of Wall Street is a distraction. Some might even say that it's a direct attack on capitalism as Wall Street is a symbol of capitalism.
Duck,Does it offend your delicate sensibilities.Huh?Referring to me as having delicate sensibilities is hilarious as you're so far off base.
Essay addressing the question of who is behind the upcoming Day of Rage.
Peaceful assembly show disrespect to the Constitution? Keep digging."Civil Disobedience" is an assembly DISRESPECTING the Constitution, by definition. Breaking the law is hardly an "endorsement" of Constitutional Law. So keep "excusing" and "rationalizing" treason, duckmeister. Thinking it and doing it are two ENTIRELY different things.
Referring to Aow as having delicate sensibilities, is hysterical . And as you should know she is one of the toughest, courageous, and intellectual women I know of. I think some conservatives should go down there and kick some non violent Butt!
Always on Watch,Technically, the style is the pre-war style, which is when Rand was writing. I don't think this is what the artist was imitating, though. He was doing socialist realism. They love doing it, too. I just posted a few global warming propaganda posters I saw while on family vacation based on Soviet art.
Edge,Thanks for that information. I'll be over to take a look at the posters.
delicate sensibilities??????Um noMy concern at this is more about history ....for this has happened before... when people were motivated to attack a minority making them a scapegoat for all their failures....and we in America are dangerously close to experiencing the riotting like in Europe...... partly because we are so ill informed by the media of the DNC which is failing to report the failure of Socialism in Europe.....and partly because we beleive we are arrogant and therefore ignorant to same fate as all other empires that have risen and fallen.....
Blogginator,Welcome back!Yes, we are dangerously close to the situation in Europe.Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if the Obama administration actually promoted such civil unrest.
