The War on Occupy is on. As the Occupy Movement took it to the streets against the Empire. The Empire decided to Strike Back. Using the 9/11 Paradigm and the Civil Liberties extinguisher known as the Patriot Act. The FBI decided to attack some of the Occupy Members. In a caper that would make Hosni Mubarak blush, several individuals were arrested over the weekend for so called acts of terrorism. Yes using the old scare tactic of wild “anarchists on the loose”. The arrests served as a two pronged attack first to test the power of The Patriot Act at Home, and secondly to discredit the Occupy Movement in the eyes of the world further by using the Corporate Media to funnel yet more lies. Hold on to your hats folks because Civil Liberties Repression comes home this Spring, all to protect the precious War Machine.
Three Young men have had their lives forever changed. Traveling from down South these members of the Occupy Miami movement have had their lives turned upside down. These self proclaimed Anarchists were arrested for supposed attacks that would be unleashed upon Chicago police. To add fuel to these claims the FBI happened to accidentally plant certain weapons I mean they “found “ certain weapons of of mass hysteria in the household of these young men. They are now being charged with trumped up attempted terrorism charges that carry a penalty as severe as 85 years essentially a life sentence if convicted. Naturally the Corporate Owned Media and the 1% cringed at the horror before them, they celebrated the arrests as acts of Patriotism and valor. However when one looks beneath the surface of the flim flam what becomes grossly apparent is the true fact. This was a wanton violation of the right to dissent. These young men were targets because they supported the Occupy Movement. These young men were targeted because they dared to speak against a War Machine that until this days continues to slaughter innocents with impunity and without reproach. These young men have been branded terrorists their crime is simply that they were exposing and calling out the War Crimes of the Empire. It is truly sad to see Freedom violated so wantonly within our very homeland.
The Corporate Media naturally had a field day with this story. Just when the whole terrorism paradigm seems to be fading from the American collective mindset, this new incident can be used to instill fear of the Occupy Movement. The movement which is essentially composed of the 99% of America to fight against the vile exploits of the 1%. In this case the Occupy Movement dared taken on a sacred cow, they dared to face up against War Machine which has bankrupted our Nation, shed lives on all sides and continues to murder without accountability. However this display of crushing dissent is nothing more than a way to flex muscles, to chill free speech further and crush any hope of decency in American public discourse. The Corporate Media of course swearing its fealty to the 1% continues to fight to protect the interests.
The War against the Occupy Movement has been launched. The FBI and Homeland Security are now falsely arresting its members in order to instill a measure of fear. Using the Laws such as the Patriot Act and NDAA, they are now able to deem dissenters as terrorists. This is just the beginning of this vile tactic which will surely be used further in the future. We the 99% must be careful of this, as our rights are being taken away through smoke and mirrors. It seems that the Bush Legacy has never truly left us and the true change we need is a society that can do away with the terrorist paradigm and move us into a society that will embrace freedom and democracy.
