Since most of the camps have been broken up, many would like to believe that “Occupy Wall Street” has faded with the cold and only a few scattered miscreants holding onto an impossible dream are all that’s left.
Not so. The Marxist organizers behind Occupy aren’t going anywhere. They’ve been trying to manufacture a Leftist answer to the Tea Party for three years, and they finally have it. This is their revolution. Their last chance to “fundamentally transform” America before the 2012 election. They’re not about to go peacefully.
Warning to America’s Super Rich: Think Occupy Wall Street disappeared in winter’s cold? Wrong: The 99% just declared a new aggressive, covert special-ops war strategy to take back our democracy in 2012.
No more peaceful tent encampments in parks. No more Mahatma Gandhi nice-guy stuff. Not enough. Escalation time. Wall Street, the Super Rich and their Washington lobbyists are tone deaf, blinded by greed, trapped in their post-2008 business-as-usual bubble.
Warning, OWS tells us America’s going to be shocked by not one but hundreds of wake-up calls in 2012.
How? In a recent Washington Post op-ed column, OWS leaders are clearly accelerating their battle strategy in 2012. In what amounts to a new declaration of war that promises to electrify the 2012 elections, OWS will be using new asymmetrical warfare strategies, write the two men who’ve been the driving force behind the movement since early this year, Kalle Lasn editor-in-chief of Adbusters magazine and senior editor Micah White.
Listen to some of the specific guerilla tactics they warn will be used in their coming 2012 “American Spring” assault: A “marked escalation of surprise, playful, precision disruptions, rush-hour flash mobs, bank occupations, ‘occupy squads’ and edgy theatrics.” And in a New Yorker magazine interview shortly after New York Mayor Bloomberg’s “military-style operation,” Lasn warned: “this means escalation, pushing us one step closer to a revolution.”
That’s a threat if I ever heard one.
The Occupiers aren’t gone – they’re regrouping. Promising to come back with a vengeance in the spring, they have essentially declared war on “the rich,” our constitutional republic, and anybody else who happens to get in the way of their Socialist Utopia. Is anybody listening?
