Class Warfare! This seems to be the primary concern on the minds of the Tea Party and the Ultra Rich. Clearly they are disturbed by the swelling protests that are happening now all around the country. What began has anger and frustration in Manhattan, has spread throughout the country. Where there was no coverage, now this has become the hot topic of debate. Where no leaders spoke on the situation, even the President of the United States has to come to grips with reality. The people are angry at the Financial system, Capitalism’s darkest nature is being challenged flatly. The people of the United States have realized that unregulated and unchecked Capitalism leads to disaster. Ignoring the will of the majority of the people is also leading to disaster. Yet the other side who finally spoke can only summon the concept class warfare. Through use of this smoke and mirrors concept they are simply obfuscating the reality of the situation.
It is a an irony to watch Paul Ryan rail against the protesters. A man who’s Tea Party philosophy claims to support a grass roots movement. Paul Ryan in trying to keep anti establishment credibility claims he is against government but does not support class warfare. What is this class warfare these politicians speak of? Newt Gingrich, and brand new GOP front runner Herman Cain are also speaking against the People’s Movement, claiming it is nothing more than mere examples of class warfare. The same concept continues to prop up. These are the very same individuals who supported Tea Party rallies against the government, who claim that the Tea Party was a people’s movement. Obviously because of their reaction to this protest the Tea Party contingent has been exposed for faux grass roots charlatans they truly are. Once again it has become clear the Tea Party is not a movement derived from the people, but a faux grass roots movement created by Billionaires and Wall St, to try to deliver the illusion of democracy. In essence Tea Party is exactly who the protesters are trying to fight. These are the defenders of a Capitalism gone astray, these are the defenders of the wealthy Corporate Fascists, who have taken over our government and hijacked our Constitution.
The Occupy protests with all its apparent demands are cohesive in one central unifying theme. (no not class warfare). The theme is simple we need a separation from Corporation and State. For too long these engines of Fascism have become our government. Our laws are being written by highly paid lobbyist who simple aim is to create laws that benefit their corporate interest. The problem is not government corruption. The problem is removing the parasites of corporate America who are leeching off government. A democratic form of government is when the will of the people is done, not the will of a minority of private interests hiding behind the legal instrument of the corporation. These Tea Party leaders are dead wrong this is not an issue of class warfare, This is a battle against an economic system that has been hijacked, this is a battle against Fascism.
