Occupy this space
It may set you free
Or maybe play you like a fool
in the whirlwind
Ninety-nine ruled by one just won't do
The songs of the occupation movement should be written by individuals everywhere. No standard folk or country or soft rock please. Intense is what we need. Something to reflect the times. A soundtrack for the new revolution that has an edge to keep the intensity up.
The question of the week is whether or not the Occupy protests can be grassroots or is it being manipulated from the git go. Even NPR had a short discussion today on if 'Occupy' can avoid the fate of the 'Tea Party' and what started out as an idea whose time had come only to be hijacked by corporate and big moneyed right wing interests. This time the co-opting will be by corporate big moneyed left wing interests in what is already becoming a tag team smackdown between the tea partiers and the occupiers. More divide and conquer.
Already the introduction of union support is seen by some as it's too late. Could be. It will take strong vigilance by those aware of the potential to be manipulated and deceived to overcome it. The encouraging thing I see is that people are talking about not letting the hijacking happen (or continue) and that they are going to see to it that it doesn't.
Is Occupy Wall Street at least partly funded by Soros? Has MoveOn.org moved in? Is ACORN the seed? Bad news if they are. It would be sort of a repeat of that hopey changey psy-op.
Alex Jones has got his bullhorn out against the Federal Reserve but really should just let Ron Paul do the talking for him. It may be the message that's important but sometimes the messenger can sideline it with antics.
Not a great deal of anti-war messages being promoted at the 'Occupy' gatherings. There are some from individuals but not enough considering that's where so much of the money goes. In a related protest, there is an Antiwar Mass Assembly in Trafalgar Square on 8 October but with featured speakers being gatekeeper zionist front men Julian Assange and Noam Chomsky, it seems to be another co-opted event.
One thing I've noticed is that since the so called main stream media started its daily coverage of the protests, the Palestinian statehood issue is nowhere to be found. Gone, forgotten. Israel couldn't have scripted better timing for a diversion had they been the ones in charge of the protests.
OccupyNashville had its rallies today but not a great turnout. About a couple of hundred folks that stood around for the cameras for awhile and went home. At least the Wall Street Corporate Military Machine in the picture above was a nice touch. Why today at noon instead of say Saturday when more might be there? I question that planning.
There's so much being talked about concerning the protests that it's hard to even scratch the surface. Further insights would be appreciated.
