Letter to Michael Moore, indelible hero, retrograde Occupy Obama supporter

Dear Michael,
I write you as a longtime, enthusiastic fan, and please pardon me if the deference and affection I’d like to convey have been overcome by my shock at your recent emails. My question may sound rhetorical, but I would really like to know: what the hell compels you to shill once again for Barack Obama? Beside the campaign pablum.

When you visited Occupys across the country, including ours in Denver, I defended you to friends who dismissed you as the usual shepherd’s crook for the Democratic Party. No no no I assured them, he gets it. But did you? We weren’t protesting eight years of Bush followed by an ineffectual Obama, we were protesting Obama and the economic system under his watch. We weren’t protesting the Democratic Party being insufficiently adversarial to the Republicans, we were protesting the corporate party system, the Democrat face being the more two-faced.

Most significantly, while our anger was vented at Wall Street, the repression we were dealt, and which dissenters continue to suffer, came directly from the agencies of President Obama.

Yet now you presume to accuse the same audience of cynicism about the election, and urge us to support Democrat Obama, the wolf in sheep’s clothing, out of fear of the Big Bad Wolf, as usual Republican.

Maybe as the election draws to a climax you’ve become privy to an unseen power struggle you need to tell us about. Because it’s at odds with your earlier giddiness with Occupy. Then your enthusiasm was unclouded by your pragmatism today.

Please do tell, because Mitt Romney seems more a sheep in wolf’s clothing to me. He’s a cartoonish straw man villain spouting wedge-issue threats to scare us crows from lighting upon the real corporate agenda. The banking kleptocracy doesn’t care about gay/women’s rights except to restrict all rights, the easier to pursue its grand thefts. If the GOP had wanted to pick a winner, I’m certain the average doctor or teacher you come across everyday would have made a more suited contender.

Could the GOP have chosen a greedier more callous thug, who didn’t pay his taxes, tainted by so much scandal that a new one emerged every day to titillate and offend? Obama had to sluff the first presidential debate because they’d chosen such an unbelievable, lame duck opponent that the ratings threatened to tank.

When the Neocon Washington Post endorsed President Obama, I knew the stooge from the ringer. The empire would be screwed without Obama to placate its victims. As Glen Ford argues, Obama may appear the lesser evil, but he’s the more effective evil. He’ll sell what arrogantly-white Romney never could: more war, austerity, privatization, fossil fuel. Without Obama, the global populace would push back.

I don’t favor a Romney win, but for another reason than you. A Romney presidency would mean another cycle of voter outrage, with MoveOn once again rallying Democrats, as if they were any different, and you probably among them.

But the election is not even going to be close. The six billion spent on this election was six billion earned by the media by pretending the polling was tied, to extort more spending by both sides. Meanwhile horseless statistician Nate Silver is vilified by television pundits because he’s calculated that surprise, Obama has a comfortable lead over his bogeyman idiot challenger.

Yes I know multitudes who support Mitt Romney. Four years ago they got nowhere with John McCain, because the juggernaut of empire was already up to full steam with Obama. I confess I didn’t know it then, and fretted a GOP win like everybody else, but it didn’t keep me from voting for Cynthia McKinney against war and climate change.

You began your letter by saying “I get it” but then assume we non-voters are motivated by apathy or weariness. You’re the one who sounds worn down. Bummer.

Yours,
Eric

How much does Occupy not believe in elections? Enough to boycott them?

US Election is election fraudPundits, even friendlies, are infecting the Occupy Movement with direction-waylaying cynicism, so I’ll tell you what I think Occupy should do next. Never mind the usual grievances, leave those to existing advocacy groups, although they do benefit from Occu-proding obviously. No matter what you think Occupy Wall Street’s core issue was, by definition OWS asserted our system of governance was broken, our regime is not responsive, not representative, and immovable by the conventional permitted mechanisms. So right now, which bankrupt democratic mechanism is being paraded before us, taunting a debunking from Occupy? We’ve been paying it lip service already: the fraud of our electoral process. Isn’t it time Occupy said DON’T VOTE? Don’t dignify Election 2012 with your buy-in, undignify it with a vote of no confidence. I don’t mean merely not vote, let’s Get Out The No Vote! Now wouldn’t that separate the men from the Dems!

MoveOn and the 99% Foundation et al, have been co-opting OWS numbers already, herding Occupy’s newly activated citizenry back into the Obama fold. Apparently there’s still hope to be squeezed, that Barack Obama isn’t the people’s nemesis he pretends to be in office.

If we threaten to occupy Obama’s vote, the Dems will roar! They’ll accuse us of ensuring the GOP villain’s win. They’ll be positively shrill, can you imagine? Occupy will go from a nostalgically eulogized Prague Spring, to People’s Enemy Number One, a national threat, inestimably unpatriotic, and suddenly more relevant than anyone’s ever dared admit. Our unoccupied friends will go from politely avoiding talking politics around us to actively begging us to reconsider.

Anyway, how are we going to explain our demonstrations at the RNC and DNC? We protest because the people are given no real choices. We protest because elections are a sham. Do we believe it ourselves? Think of fellow occupiers who’d earlier agreed that elections are mere show. Was all that talk polite patronizing? The inefficacy of voting is in fact a huge contention, and not one of those partisan niceties upon which we can agree to disagree. The illusion of Democracy is WHY WE OCCUPY. Our government is broken, the entire electoral system is election fraud. The presidential race is just a bold Kabuki show-stopper to please the crowd. Maybe Occupy can make it a real show stopper.

May Day march was big unpermitted party! Occupez les bons temps rouler!

Occupy Denver activists took to the streets of downtown Denver in an un-permitted march.
OCCUPIED DENVER– If Denver Occupiers accomplished one thing this May Day, in solidarity with global calls for a general strike, and in sync with more aggressive protests in Oakland and elsewhere, Occupy Denver had a great time. THAT WAS ALL IT HAD TO BE. The crowd was largely young, with the energy, idealism and ideology reminiscent of the early days last fall. OCCUPEZ LES BONS TEMPS ROULER!

Will the 99% Spring mean grassroots reinforcements for Occupy or MoveOn?

I’m going to think that the more mobilization of the 99% the better, no matter if it’s, ding-dong MoveOn Calling. The vast 99 are wise to the corporations and the corporate media, I think they’ll recognize when corporate organizers try to co-opt their protest. It might be bad enough that MoveOn’s nationwide “Nonviolence Teach-in” wants to defang the popular uprising, they probably imagine the public’s anger can be refocused on the usual Republican bogeymen. What’s so nefarious about MoveOn? It backs President Obama. That means even though MoveOn wants to play megaphone for the 99% and its demands, it’s actually against all of them. MoveOn Obama is against Wall Street reform, against universal healthcare, against action on climate change, against fill-in-the-blank if the people are for it! MoveOn’s centralized DC HQ, effective but decidedly not-grassy, will probably be its undoing.

Crime versus American Football – Where in the Hell are the police?

Oh American pro football! What warlock/ warlike glory! Gotta root for the home team we all do! But what if it degenerates down into criminal activity, where would the police be?

Well now we have the answer…. They will be totally ABSENT from the scene of the crime, although they seem to have hundreds of millions to fight the Free Speech Rights of participants in Occupy Wall Street and all its local spinoffs. Here we have the case of New Orleans, and its police… NFL suspends New Orleans Saints coaches, GM for 'bounties' on opponents

Notice what’s missing from this piece of reporting? Why it’s the lack of any action taken by the New Orleans police! Here we have the NFL taking action but we see no action taken by the police. Why is that?

Engaging in a criminal conspiracy that organizes group activities by people all trying to severely injure and maybe even kill other people is a crime, New Orleans police. It’s a crime, Barack Obama Administration and FBI. The participants in this type of CRIME if found guilty by a jury, should receive many years in prison, but that can’t happen if the police and government simply sit back and do nothing. So where in the Hell are the police? The fact that this criminal activity occurred during ‘football season’ is no reason for the police to not bring criminal charges against the authors of this criminal conspiracy!

This incident from American pro football illustrates the depths of degeneracy that American society has allowed itself to be pulled down into. It shows us all that it is way past time to start demanding real policing and not just an American military and police State. It’s time that Americans demand that it’s police POLICE, and not merely harass the poor and those trying to voice opposition to Big Business and Big Business dictatorship in America. It’s time that Americans begin to demand that the military also defend the country, and not just occupy foreign countries while committing multiple war crimes and crimes against humanity. It is way past time to begin to do what we must begin to do!

Wanna occupy? Sorry Colorado Springs but your Wall Street is the military, yes the pointy end of our oppressors’ stick.

Nobody likes to draw the short straw, but isn’t that already our lot living in Colorado Springs? Yeah, it’s easy to protest Wall Street from the safety of a provincial backwater, our city even backed us with a permit, but is that really grabbing the imperial bull by the horns? The Occupy Movement has spotlighted how the world’s 99% are oppressed by the ruling elite. It made more clear how true democracy is undermined by their military-industrial-corporate-banking complex. Now, doesn’t a major chunk of that alliance operate right where we live? Think. It ain’t banking or industry, and the corporations here orbit around the headliner of that lineup, the military, our city’s dominant export. Yes, criticizing the military in a military town is not popular. Do you think the Wall Street protesters were a welcome sight to Manhattan’s bankers? You can call to “End the Fed” online, or protest anything in the world from a digital soapbox, but a public demonstration is limited to what’s in your local vicinity, especially if you mean to OCCUPY IT. Look on this as a curse or a blessing: The Zuccotti Park activists get to target sharkskin-suited traders, we’re up against men with guns. But what are you going to do, cheerlead the OWS front in NY, or hold up your end of the fight?

Occupier vs The People, how they lie about ‘protecting Free Speech’ for us


Just the name Occupy Wall Street is an antiwar statement. The US military is an Occupier military against The People for the 1% Super Rich, and we are the exact opposite of such. We would Occupy the lands of the Rich and give to the Poor instead. The pro militarism people always say that they have ‘served’ to protect my ‘Free Speech’. Does that occupier with the rifle look like he is protecting OUR ‘Free Speech”? I doubt it. Remember Kent State and Jackson State!

Visit Chicago for mirth and adventure


MoveOn wants to mobilize the world’s largest nonviolence movement, calling on the 99% to teach-in itself in time for their American Spring. That’s certain to sound more palatable to America’s unbaptized middle-roaders, than the invitation above, invoking the reception likely awaiting protesters who plan to converge on Chicago in May. The G8 has been relocated to Camp David, but the larger NATO summit is still scheduled to warrant a two mile wide security perimeter around downtown Chicago. What does this poster communicate to you? I’m guessing the menacing image wasn’t chosen at random, it says to me the unadventurous need not apply.

US corporate media wishes that the Occupy Movement was dead already

‘The Occupy Wall Street group in New York is running low on money and on pace to run out by the end of the month, raising questions about the future of the movement that sparked a wave of nationwide protests against economic injustice six months ago.’ and so goes Reuters droning on about how The Occupy Movement is supposedly dead and dying. But is that really true, or does Occupy still have life let in it ready to deliver a kick to The ruling class Establishment?

‘Critics say the Occupy movement lacks demands and direction and has lost momentum. Occupy protest crowds in New York and other U.S. cities have tended to number in the hundreds rather than thousands, despite the group’s social media savvy.’

Oh, Yes, Yes, Yes… Reuters International! The protests about Capitalism destroying our country and the entire Planet Earth for that matter must be dismissed, dismissed, dismissed. …and dissed, dissed, dissed. It’s the very exact same thing here in wonderful Colorado Springs below the majestic Pikes Peak. The complaint locally is that Occupy Colorado Springs is ‘anti-soldier’ because some of the members in the local group have spoken the truth about US militarism, the US military, and YES, about the very many soldiers that make up our Establishment’s soldiers of occupation in foreign countries.

After dissing the Occupy Movement, Reuters moves on to admit some of the truth about Occupy Wall Street…

‘Funding had also been used for a “people’s kitchen” that feeds protesters and the homeless in Zuccotti Park most days and for street medics, who treat people injured during protests.

“We also do have a lot planned for the spring and we fully expect the money will start flowing in again,” she said.

A March 17 march is planned to mark the group’s six-month anniversary, and Needham said there would also be “Occupy the Fundraisers” protests against money in politics, a March 24 protest against the fossil fuel industry’s spending on lobbyists and an April 25 protest against U.S. student debt hitting $1 trillion.’

Looks like Occupy has some activities planned for and against the political Establishment after all. So it might be way too early to dismiss the Occupy as being nothing more than a failed organization of the past, most especially when the Two Party corporate dictatorship has nothing to offer up the nation but just more lies, unemployment and a growing austerity.

The misleading and dismissive Reuters reporting is from Occupy Wall Street in New York running low on cash. CASH is considered everything by Reuters International and the super rich 1% whom they write for. They WOULD begin to panic if their cash was to run low.

Bad News for the CorpoFascists… Cali woman gasses other shoppers

at a WalMart, scuffling over an X-Box. All the Corporate Goodies in one bag here, pepper spray, Capitalism, WalMart, Microsoft, greed, all in one fell swoop.
On the main YouTube video of UC Davis Occupy being peppersprayed, 30 thousand comments and most from a tiny minority of the viewers, Right Wing Retards cheering for violence against their Fellow Americans. Now the Corporate Whores are seeing what their system is promoting in a different light, and I bet none of them like what’s happening. They’ll try, probably, to blame Occupy, Liberals in general, Hippies, pot smoking, everything other than the greed their corporate Masters need to justify the very existence of Capitalism
At another Wally World, a shooting. Merry Christmas you stupid stupid bastards.

The Puppet-Masters and their pet Turkey, double-dealing.

They condemn those of us in America who rebel against their fascist Corporate leadership and presumption of ownership of every aspect of our lives, calling it “Freedom” while their Pig-Slaves break our heads with clubs and plastic bullets. And in the case of Oscar Grant, lead and copper bullets.
While cheering rebellions in countries which have denied “deprived” the Poor Little Rich Boys like Halliburton, Exxon-Mobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch, Shell, “stolen” their claim to have Corporate Control over their ports and their oil. And they actually finance and organize the so-called “spontaneous” rebellions like in Libya and now, Syria. Never mind they’re also paying Other Peoples Money And Lives to put down REAL grass roots movements in Iraq and Afghanistan and Yemen… And Turkey.
Turkey is now paying back their Corporate Overlords for the U.S. and NATO PUBLICLY FUNDED Terror War against the Kurds and Albania. The Slave-Caliph Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemns Syria for responding violently to violent attacks while continuing to suppress, with the help of his Puppet Masters in London and Washington, the Kurdish People actually having a right to life.
Lick them Pentagon Boots, “caliph” Erdogan. They’re your masters and you are their dog. Just like the New Puppet Regime in Libya, and the somewhat more established Puppet Regimes in Tel Aviv, Kabul, and Baghdad.
Be the little whipped hound for racist bastards who call you “ragheads” and “sand-niggers” and “muzzle monkeys”.
You might wear golden chains and a gold collar, but they’re still a collar and chain.
Just like the Oakland, Denver, Colorado Springs and New York Police departments violently suppressing freedom here, in the very homeland of your puppet-masters and, at their bidding.

Another FOX brainwash session

They’re reporting the mine collapse in China as being a failure of the Communist economic system, and just not pointing out that it’s CAPITALIST deregulation that caused it, just like the mine collapses in New Zealand, Chile, Peru, West Virginia…. and the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf Oil spill Massive Petroleum Hemorrhage were caused by the POP principle. Profits Over People. The difference is that in China the Death Penalty applies to murder by Corporation.
The CEO of the Chinese mine is likely to become an unwilling organ donor. Don L Blankenship, the Retired CEO of Massey Energy, who created 29 job openings with one (predictable AND predicted) reaction to defiance of existing regulations, will continue to be a multi-millionaire and will continue to donate to Right Wing Causes like, loosening regulations even further… so he can KILL more miners, Oil workers, factory workers, construction workers, farm workers, unlike himself REAL workers, and feast on the proceeds of their life and death.
Those who like myself are merely crippled by their policies will be discarded, jailed, treated as psychotics and criminals and, if the plans of Blankenship and his allies, and their political appointees, to buy the entire governance of the world for their own profit, if those plans come to fruit then I and ever other like me will also die of our injuries.
It’s a big issue in the Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Main Street movement. The Chinese had an epiphany more than a century ago when the Emperor Pu Yi demonstrated his willingness to sell China to the same Corporate Interests who are running Wall Street and Washington DC and Denver and Colorado Springs today.
And FOX News celebrates and promotes Corporate Fascism and promotes Blankenship as a Hero.

Recap: Don Blankenship, Political Donor, Chinese Mine Owner following his Political “leadership”: Organ Donor.

That Blankenship, Massey Energy, British Petroleum etc are directly subsidized in every aspect of their attainment of riches, from acquiring the “rights” to mine or drill in any land mass or ocean of their choice through TAXPAYER funded Military Action, and the police and courts shielding the Rich from the consequences of their MURDERS and thefts, is nothing short of Fascism in every classic definition of the term. Their use of the Tea Party and Minutemen as Brownshirt (Germany) or Blackshirt (Spain, Portugal, Italy, France) Stormtrooper Militia seals the definition tightly onto their foreheads. The Security Chief at Upper Big Branch was recently “sacrificed” by Great Big Hero Blankenship and his pals, even though he, like Hermann Goehring and Josef Goebels and Heinrich Himmler, was “only following orders”.

Yeah, I DID compare Corporate Amerika to the Nazis. Bite me.
That and I pointed out the TeaParty, Fox News, and the Minutemen as being Nazi oriented if not directly affiliated.

So this Right Wing Wanker is claiming to have provoked a police assault on Occupy in DC.

And it appears he actually did so. In his words, to bring condemnation on the protesters. But since most of the people pepper-sprayed weren’t protesters, this Wanker is actually claiming to have incited a riot, for political gain, in which civilians were injured. The dork is named Patrick Howley an assistant editor for The National Spectator, an online “news” blog with somewhat less credibility and editorial or should I say “idiotorial” standards than a supermarket tabloid. “conservative” of course. Put this picture up on his Facebook page.

Perhaps he didn’t really do it and wants to hog “credit” for getting his fellow Americans assaulted. I know, I know, an anti-American terrorist, but he’s still American.

Here’s another theory, Maybe he’s a LIBERAL infiltrator into the ConservaTard world trying to make THEM look stupid.
Which, all things considered, would be a redundant effort to their own making of silly-looking done to themselves with, you know, not any letup whatsodamnedever.

Howley, old sot… do you even take into consideration that gas of any kind isn’t limited in its spread or effect to those at whom it’s, for want of a better word, AIMED? Every time the Pigs, like the museum guards you praise for their “courage” in resisting your staged attack,, use gas, be it tear gas or pepper spray, it’s a chemical weapon deployed against their own people. Sounds like you have a lot of God-damn fun mimicking the worst charges against Saddam Hussein. Your pig hero did, certainly.

But, Patrick, old head, you’ve got to realize something and start realizing it really soon. Those stories your “conservative” masters have you and other professional liars spread, about Asthma and CPOD in particular, being a fake illness made up to “get more black kids on Medicaid” ummm… no. They’re real and the diagnoses of Asthma predated Medicaid for about a century. CPOD is an adult-onset form of it and, apparently, what your side is attempting is to deflect the public eye from research that Ozone and other pollutants caused from using internal combustion engines run on gasoline and diesel is a likely cause of it. And they certainly make the juvenile-onset disease of Asthma very much worse.

Further, people with emphysema (P. C.: Cigarettes and smog), elderly people and infants, along with the Asthma/CPOD Americans you took the risk of hitting with gas, can DIE and in many cases HAVE died as a result of similar deployments.

In case you want a more “Conservative” source for that information, perhaps you could hit up the Collin County Prosecutor in Texas who filed charges against a 14 year old, tried him as an ADULT, for setting off a canister of Tear Gas. The charges included Assault With A Deadly Weapon. Now, I know the manufacturers of Tear Gas and Pepper spray deny any of their products being lethal. So do the makers of the Taser.

If you’d care for more on the Taser, or especially if you DON’T (mostly because you’re a narcissistic assmunch) here’s another Very Conservative Source for information on the lies the Taser company spreads, with the help of people like you… ConservaTards who conserve nothing.

There were in the space of about a week and a half two robberies committed in El Paso County, Colorado, using Tasers. The DA promised charges of Robbery W/ Deadly Weapon.

Just so you know, and remember, O Stupid One, you are “copping” out to unleashing Chemical Weapons against Americans. Many of whom were tourists actually enjoying the displays of Mechanized and Automated Baby-Killing Apparati at the Air and Space Museum.

As sick and bloodthirsty as that is, and no doubt you applaud babykilling in your blog, they’re still Americans even if I have to hold my nose while calling them that. I’m sure a narcissist like yourself will find some way to shuffle the blame onto somebody else.

The News Corporation blackout continues…

Not just Rupert Murdoch’s share of it either, the MSM is covering #occupywallstreet with a blanket of silence. Everytime Sarah Palin farts there’s ten cameras recording the event and all the reporters volunteer to tongue wash her rectal orifice.
It’s fascism at its essence, right down to the “free” press fawning over the Police State brutal suppression of the voice of the people at (wall) street-level. And receiving direct tax-paid subsidies to the Corporations including their “free” press mouthpieces. The MSM shrieks on the command of their Overlords and keeps silent on command. Like our Local Fascist media, KOAA, the Gazette, other “Freedom” Corp “news” outlets… with their parent corporation in bankruptcy for the past three years and still they’re being bailed out, at whose expense? Since their corporate partners don’t seem eager to actually buy their debt from them, who’s paying their bills, and doing it secretly? Is it the GWOT Department of Lies, the ones set up in late 2001 to spread disinformation to the press and squash legitimate news with silence?

Apparently the FOX news and “freedom” corp Trolls are getting the word.
