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 Â miscreants holding onto an impossible dream are all that’s left.
Not so. Â The Marxist organizers behind Occupy aren’t going anywhere. Â They’ve been trying to manufacture a Leftist answer to the Tea Party for three years, and they finally have it. Â This is their revolution. Â Their last chance to “fundamentally transform” America before the 2012 election. Â They’re not about to go peacefully.
Warning to Americaâ€™s Super Rich: Think Occupy Wall Street disappeared in winterâ€™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 Americaâ€™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 whoâ€™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 â€œAmerican Springâ€ assault: A â€œmarked escalation of surprise, playful, precision disruptions, rush-hour flash mobs, bank occupations, â€˜occupy squadsâ€™ and edgy theatrics.â€ And in a New Yorker magazine interview shortly after New York Mayor Bloombergâ€™s â€œmilitary-style operation,â€ Lasn warned: â€œthis means escalation, pushing us one step closer to a revolution.â€
That’s a threat if I ever heard one.
The Occupiers aren’t gone – they’re regrouping. Â 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. Â Is anybody listening?
