Why is it you never hear of the Democratic Party's role in promoting the Occupy Wall Street ("OWS") movement, and how it, along with media controlled by Democrats (such as top Obama advisor and General Electric's CEO Jeffrey Immelt's GENBC) has created and manipulated OWS for its own purposes?
What OWS is NOT is a legitimate grass roots movement. Rather it is a small core of die hard anarchists and rabble rouser's who have no plans other than to topple what's here, with just a fuzzy concept of what comes next. Unfortunately, when movements like OWS and other movements like it manage to have any degree of success the result never resembles a democracy. Instead, what is created are perfect conditions for people of ill will to step in. The best example - besides the French Revolution - is Iran.
How quickly we forget when the Democratic media wants it that way! In the late 1970's the all powerful Western media was gung ho on getting rid of the Shah, but of course too brainless to understand that what would replace the Shah would not be supporters of democracy, but a repressive theocracy - and a highly dangerous theocracy at that. Jimmy Carter, then and now an incompetent, was completely outmaneuvered, no difficult task. The Western media supported those seeking to bring down the regime, and down the regime went. The result was decades of repression, misery and world destabilization.
Of course, no one was taken to task for what happened in Iran. The Democratic media in the United States - among which are the major television networks - CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, NPR, plus the N.Y. Times, Washington Post et als, never allows a former Democratic President to be considered poorly in retrospect (think of fellow incompetents Harry Truman and even more so - John Kennedy). So as quickly as possible sainthood was conferred on Jimmy Carter and his Arab dictatorship supporting "Carter Center." You have never, and will never hear a peep of criticism from the Democratic media of just how badly Carter handled the Iranian situation.
In fact, it is never mentioned at all.
So now we have the even more openly Democratic media wholeheartedly supporting "Occupy" movement. Naturally, there's an angle in it for the Democrats. Besides taking the spotlight off of Obama's economically and socially ruinous policies, the claim to a "movement" countering the Tea Party is used hand in glove to support Obama's campaign strategy of separating America into rich and poor. This isn't the time to go into how dangerous and un-American it is to divide the country into classes based on wealth, but it is a certainty that the Democratic media won't take Obama to task for it - heck lots of that media are working for Obama's campaign! In fact, the Democratic media is actively pressing ahead with the assumption - soon to be considered "fact" - that OWS is legitimate movement acting as a voice of the people, and by the way supporting Obama's class warfare campaign strategy.
And, typically, the Republicans fall into every trap laid for them by the Democrats - but again that's another story.
Maybe something more sinister is going on with the Democrats and OWS. But whatever it is, what OWS is not is a legitimate, spontaneous grass roots movement. Rather, it is a carefully planned, although who knows, perhaps poorly executed stunt aimed at bettering the Democrats chances in the next election.
And here's a prediction - the OWS movement will wither away, Cindy Sheehan style, if Obama wins the election and OWS's usefulness to the Democrats is over.
Because when you come right down to it, the power of the OWS movement is something wholly conferred by the Democratic media. That media is still immensely powerful, and has done a good job of taking a tiny group of people and making them into something they are not. Recall the hostility of the Democratic media to the far far larger Tea Party and the manipulation that has been used on those already subject to a lifetime of conditioning to convince them that the Tea Party movement is somehow 'racist.' This despite the fact that race and social issues aren't any part of the Tea Party agenda. But then again, prevarication, falsehoods, exaggerations, omissions and outright lies are just means to an end for the Democratic media.
And, most troubling is that the issues discussed above don't ever seem to be examined by anyone - again, where are the Republicans? Of course, Republican failures with respect to the Democratic media is another subject entirely.
