Balkanization of Protest – Part 2: #TeaParty Versus #OccupyWallStreet

Balkanization of Protest – Part 2: #TeaParty Versus #OccupyWallStreet

VERSUS is the operative word.

The “original” #TeaParty was largely right-of-center people who have HAD IT UP TO HERE with #Democrats, #Liberals, #Socialiststhe #Republican Party, the #JusticeDepartment, #MainstreamMedia and the catchall Broken System.

#OccupyWallStreet is largely left-of-center people who have HAD IT UP TO HERE with #Republicans, #Conservatives, Reactionaries, the #Democratic Party, the Justice Department, #MainstreamMedia and the catchall Broken System.

Do I spy common ground, or WHAT?

There surely is SOME infusion of Tea Party passion into iOccupy.  As proof…hell, as HOPE…I point to the instant-classic YouTube of a (barely) 20-Something rant against WAR and the FEDERAL RESERVE:

Watch on youtube.com

GOOD. ON. HIM.

But animosity between the camps of Unhappy Campers is pronounced and increasing.  Why?  They COMPETE for the favor of the Mainstream Media they both claim to distrust, and they line up behind the Parties they both claim to buck.

Though SHEER NUMBERS is Rank & File’s unequivocal strong suit, they compete/fight with EACH OTHER, rather than COLLABORATE to vanquish common adversaries.

The operative word is COMMON.

OF COURSE they don’t like each other.  That is why they are on OPPOSITE ENDS of a manmade political construct.  It is difficult to imagine ANYONE has reached the ripe old age of, say, THIRTY without hearing that Passion is on a circle, not a line, with LOVE as up-close-and-personal to HATE as a next-door neighbor in a fenceless ‘hood.

In Ordinary Times, ASSUMING FREEDOM AND ABSENT SHIT-DISTURBING, many many many many of America’s Conscientious Objectors would not mix ‘n mingle  SO WHAT?

 

Show me a person whose emotions contain not one TRACE of dislike or disapproval, and I’ll show you a FLATLINER.  That is a matter of OPINION.

“You have enemies? Good! That means you’ve STOOD for something in your lifetime.” – Winston Churchill

This is FACT: What most ails VICTIMIZED OUTRAGED RIGHT and VICTIMIZED OUTRAGED LEFT is not each other.  They didn’t get screwed outta homes, livelihoods, present security and future prospects BY EACH OTHER.

The Rich=Powerful people who screwed people over RIGHT, LEFT AND CENTER are BETTER at ruling the world/people than are the newly awakened.  Powers That WERE have been AT it for all of human history: DIVIDE & CONQUER.

In arguing that the #TeaParty is long since USURPED by #OldGuardRepublicans, I go back to March 2010 — “a long time ago,” by POLITICAL measure.  For the ol’ Permanent Record, Politics is NOT a Necessary Evil.  GOVERNMENT is a Necessary Evil.  TAXES are a Necessary Evil.  POLITICS is self-interested Opportunism…which is to say CAPITALIZING on Necessary Evil.

By measure of PROBABLE LIFE SPAN, I have spent “a long time” roaming around America, trying to make enough sense of INSANITY to squeeze my own craziness in edgewise, trying to memorialize ground conditions without WHITEWASHING, trying to write/say/do/ SOMETHING that contributes to the Effort to restore REASON and INTEGRITY to governance of the United States.

Being in Georgia when I learned of the upcoming ANTI OBAMACARE rally in Washington DC, I resolved to drive there.  NOT fly.  It jars my senses every time I contrast how much I formerly loved to travel with how afraid I now am of flying.  And it is NOT Terrorists who are scaring the bejeezus outta me.

I could not replicate my entry into the District of Columbia if I tried, but the first non-memorial edifice I came up against was the Department of Agriculture.  City BLOCKS of it, seemingly with more OFFICE WINDOWS than America has FARMERS.  It is the first and only time I vocalized RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

It IS futile, in a way.  Even if The Aggrieved oust The Icky, OTHER Icky will assert themselves, and they will amass wealth=power, and they will abuse that power.  Thousands of years of recorded history attest.  Still, must TRY.

It is opinion, not fact…that it is our duty to TRY, right to the buzzer.

It is historical FACT that certain Oppressed People HAVE risen and reclaimed their natural-born freedom from their manmade Oppressors.  Oppressors are thirteen to the dozen.  Overthrower becoming like or WORSE than Overthrown is a tale as common as it heartbreaking, but that does not mean Oppressed People should forbear OPPRESSION.

Might just as well say NO POINT IN LIVING, SINCE WE’RE GONNA DIE.

On the 20th of March 2010, the TeaPartiers assembled on the lawn below the balcony wherefrom impervious Congress Members LOOKED DOWN ON THEM were the TeaPartiers of my online AND in-the-flesh acquaintance.  FYI to Keyboard Commandos, you have to actually RISK venturing out and MEETING some “Online Posters” before you can even GUESSTIMATE  at who & what is real.  Phonies & Propaganda abound . . . just like Liars & False Advertising abound.  C-O-N-N-E-C-T-I-V-I-T-Y.

Bullies on high, bullies in schools.  Top-down, top-down.

The 3/20/10 #Obamacare protest was “original” Tea Party, people who quoted Founding Fathers and donned “period” costume.  DOWN on Obamacare, they were.  (Americans will rue the day they fought for the right to pay for their OWN unaffordable healthcare, but that is another story.  A DIFFERENT story of Divide & Conquer.)

They were also DOWN on War and the ENTANGLING ALLIANCES.  They were DOWN on Government Overreach, Government Waste, Hyper Regulation, Civil Rights Abuse, Police Brutality, Self-Investigation, Entrenched Politicians, Corrupt Officials & the TWO-PARTY STRANGLEHOLD.

They were DOWN DOWN DOWN on CentralBankers.  END THE FED!

They were ALSO comparatively FEW  – early, enthusiastic suggestion of 25,000 attendees was ridiculed out of countenance.  A FEW thousand?  Using Drake Stadium as a reference, not even 10,000.  They’re all hell-bent on Repealing Obamacare, but the big TeaParty push against Obamacare drew fewer people than a Latino assembly for I-don’t-know-what a few blocks away.  On a Saturday.

Then I learned that the TEA PARTY EXPRESS would roll into town later in the week . . . in high style and posh coaches, with SARAH PALIN headlining.

Sarah Palin, running mate of John McCain and QUITTER of Alaskan Governorship is “suddenly” drawing crowds AND DONORS under the Tea Party banner.  Platforms, having weight and bulk, are hard to maintain and harder to peddle.  Banners are light and breezy, readily collapsed into “practically nothing” nd inexpensively reproduced with modifications, such as the addition of CELEBRITY ENDORSEMENTS.

Not only did the TEA PARTY EXPRESS roll into Washington DC AFTER the TeaParty protest of Obamacare on 3/20/10, it rolled into Washington DC AFTER the House PASSED Obamacare on 3/21/10.

TEA PARTY EXPRESS rolled into Dealmaking Central on a WEEK DAY…when those who HAVE jobs don’t DARE not show up for them.  TEA PARTY EXPRESS further distinguished itself from the “original” TeaParty, when TeaPartyExpress Brass posed and pontificated  on ONE side of the weekend and #SecondAmendment folk assenbled not only on the other side of the WEEKEND, but also the other side of the RIVER, in another state.

Say what you will about Hardcore Libertarian Gun Toters, FEEL about them however you do — some ARE scary — but as the sword is the last argument of kings, so an Armed Citizenry IS the last defense AGAINST Kings and Killers.  C’est la vie.

In short (lol), I believe the #TeaParty Movement  has been co-opted AT LEAST since March 2010.

By Old Guard Republicans, no less.  It is all fine and well for Sarah Palin to preach Anti Establishmentarianism NOW — it’s kinda hard to say who broke up with WHOM — but for absolute positive certain, she rode the coattails of none other than the Old Boy Network to her “discovery” as a  MEDIA SENSATION. Lady Go Go.

With the Republican Machine, same as with the Democratic Machine, comes ENHANCED SHOT AT VICTORY, also at big-league fundraising and high-flying lifestyles. “Original” Tea Partiers, flush with the “success” of installing infamous Republican freshman who played HOSTAGE POLITICS over the debt deal, don’t wanna do anything that might piss of the mighty “Republican Base.”

Power corrupts?  Money=Power, and there you have it.  Hard right Republicans have swept Funny Hat Tea Partiers off their feet with (at last!) THEIR slice o’ the pie.  IF YOU CAN’T BEAT ‘EM, JOIN ‘EM.  WINNING IS EVERYTHING.  THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS.

They who were lately mocked now RIDICULE the Socialists and Marxists among the #OccupyWallStreeters. Pray tell, what if Congress would be known and judged by photos of ANTHONY WEINER.

What if the entire American Legal System would be evaluated by Pennsylvania Judge Mark Ciavarella,WHO LOCKED KIDS UP FOR CASH?

If Limousine Liberals are TRYING to overtake Occupy Wall Street to make it pro-Obama or “just” tweak it ANTI GOP, it’s because they CAN.

“…in the absence of genuineleadershiptheyll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone.” – Michael J. Fox in American President

The Mainstream media is owned by GIANT CORPORATIONS.  Giant Corporations are doing very well.  Remember?  CORPORATE EARNINGS the bright spot of our poorly performing but well-propped economy.  Giant Corporations are not WITH The Resistance.  Officials that live like ROYALTY compared to our erstwhile Middle Class are not even SERVANTS to the Public, they are certainly not FRIENDS.

Even IF #OccupyWallStreet were initially the brainchild of Masterminds on “the other side”, it is only and entirely by INFIGHTING AMONG COMMONERS that they could keep AHOLD of so much discontent agitating amid so much suffering and insecurity.

“Never underestimate the power of large groups of stupid people.” – DEMOTIVATORS INC

The election is more than a year away.  There is talk of a national Occupy assembly in Philadelphia, commencing next JULY (love the venue, WEEP at the delay).  It is PREPOSTEROUS for theoretical populist groundswells of OUTRAGE & RESOLVE to quickly line up along party lines, behind existing standard-bearers.

It bears repeating, Commoners’ leverage lies in their NUMBERS.

More and more and more and more Resistors WITHHOLDING support from politicians and campaigns, pending redress of grievances, THAT will put pressure on them.  A larger and larger mass of people refusing to get sucked into party politics or distracted by Wedge Issues, THAT will scare them.  If we have learned nothing else about Terrorism, we have learned that FEAR is highly motivational.

Starve the Cold, feed the Fevered.

ACCOMPLISHMENT trumps OCCUPATION.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
