D’ya think ANTIFA might be a trap?

By all means shout down the fascists. Shout down white supremicists. Bash the alt-right. Do it in black bloc, if you must (and yes we must). March on, against, and over, capitalism. Declare yourself anti-fascist. Express solidarity with ANTIFA protests … Continue reading

Modern Nat Turner insures Dallas cops cannot assail Black lives with impunity

Was ANYBODY going to stop the unfettered lynching of people of color in America? Did President Obama ever deliver anything more than a eulogy? Few police officers are being convicted or even indicted. Videotaped killings of black men by lawmen … Continue reading

Trump fever is the new Antisemitism

Mostly because he got the vote of the Angry White Males who are stymied in their goal of making America a permanently white dynastic order. Which includes their version of Christianity and excludes all other people. Think they like Minorities … Continue reading

Occupy Your Liberal Tendencies

“OCCUPY YOUR LIBERAL TENDENCIES”. Yeah, it doesn’t mean what you think it means. Dems love the slogan because they read it as “embrace liberalism”. Iliterate radicals fall for the same misconception. Occupy activists know the concept means to DISRUPT or … Continue reading

Happy birthday to Occupy Wall Street. 4yrs old & still drawing party crashers (who took everything but the cake).

DENVER, COLORADO- Our #S17 bash for the fourth anniversary of #OWS was interrupted by an eviction, actually the second sweep of the Lindsey Flanigan Plaza that day, where Denver police and SWAT took everything, our inverter, sewing machine, banners, posters, … Continue reading

The frequently cited St Paul Principles had their time and place: ST PAUL

In my circle they’re called “Saint Paul’s Principles” because my colleagues think the edicts are Catholic I guess. The St Paul Principles came from St Paul Minnesota, circa 2008, and were formally adopted by the varied groups organizing to disrupt … Continue reading

Get a job you dirty hippie! Unhelpful advice which activists take personally.

Occupy Wall Street composed a chant to rebut the ageless heckle hurled at protesters: GET A JOB YOU DIRTY HIPPIE! After Zuccotti Park was razed and Occupiers regrouped, they offerd this rejoinder. Remember it?     “Got a JOB. Took … Continue reading

Wall Street is why we can’t have nice things. Your gullible good nature is why America can’t change that.

Cops are people too, voting matters, use honey not vinegar, the only way is nonviolence, yada yada. Try this against your old liberals’ tales: If one million indignados foreswore property destruction, a policeman with a sharp pencil could subjugate them … Continue reading

Gun Control for weapons makers not users, for war mongers not hillbillies

I’m really not big on this call for gun control, mostly because it means to further restrict individual liberties, and especially because the outcry is a media induced hysteria of disreputable provenance, aimed at America’s violence junkies instead of its … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

Steve Bass found guilty of camping not occupying, but could jury have ruled otherwise without hearing his defense?

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– You may have underestimated the importance of today’s Camping Ban trial. The local media, social justice community and rights watchdogs missed it. But judging from the police force on hand and the elaborate lock-downs placed on the … Continue reading

Occupy Wall Street fave Michael Moore does it again, uses Obamacare half- measure to wield Democrat Party whip

Serenading Occupy Wall Street and the sundry nationwide protest camps it engendered, Michael Moore was ecstatic and it seemed, finally over his on-off relationship with the Democratic Party. As bad as he wanted to be, on election years, Moore was … Continue reading

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

Pundits, 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. … Continue reading

Denver April 28 War on Women march was a PRObama rally and we fell for it

DENVER- Isn’t there something distasteful about a gathering of Obama supporters who want to rail against “The War On Women” and permit no mention of his non metaphorical deadly engagements? Organizers complained bitterly about activist Rita Ague’s successful subversion of … Continue reading

The only thing the rich ever wanted was everything. Occupy wants it back.

Was it Utah Philips or Michael Parenti who said it, “the only thing the rich have ever wanted was EVERYTHING”? Do you wonder why Occupy’s demands have to be specific? To my mind, Occupy has a mandate that’s equally self-evident: … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

Up to 200,000 young people ‘occupied’ Montreal last week in protest

Turns out that the Occupy Movement is not so dead after all, it’s just that the corporate media wants you to think that it is. ‘Occupy Montreal’ is not exactly organized in the way that Occupy Wall Street has done … Continue reading
