Wall Street Protesters Support A Second Holocaust

Advertisement

The Wall Street Protesters [hereinafter referred to as “Fleabaggers,” (like the Teabaggers, but because these protestors are unclean…you get the joke)] and Texas Governor Rick Perry [hereinafter referred to as “Rick ‘Everything’s Bigot-er in Texas’ Perry”] have been busy fearmongering this week.

The Fleabaggers, spurred by Obama’s call for class warfare, have been busy this week coveting what others have. Some on the Right claim they don’t have a clear and consistent message yet, but I think their message is clear – we live in a America and were brought up to believe that everyone deserves a trophy for participating, not just those who succeed, so now we want our trophy http://wearethe99percent.tumblr.com/ i.e. we are entitled and someone is to blame for our failure.

But who are to blame for the lack of success for these Communication and Philosophy majors? Not themselves! Why would you even think that you capitalistic pig!?! Someone must be to blame, but whom? Not the government because that makes too much sense, so the answer must be the wealthy; those who were able to succeed in the current system. The wealthy must have created inherit inequalities in the system which rewards what society (i.e. the market) deems valuable. That’s the ticket! To support this they will provide evidence of the gap between the rich and poor widening http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2011/oct/08/reducing-poverty-should-be-top-priority/. So what is the Fleabagger solution to eliminate this gap? Envy, fear, covet, and attack the rich. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203633104576625081679793052.html

But what does this have to do with the holocaust you ask? Easy, Jews are the ones that are succeeding financially, so they must be more to blame then other groups. “Jews’ median net worth was $423,500 according to a 2004 U.S. Department of Labor survey analyzed in the book, nearly five times higher than the population’s median net worth of $86,000, and nearly 19 times higher than black Protestants’ median net worth of $22,800.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/on-faith/study-religion-can-affect-your-soul-_-and-your-wallet/2011/10/11/gIQAVAU3cL_story.html But who am I kidding; no one would ever blame one group for all the problems of another group to support their political agenda. Luckily, since political rhetoric has never turned into violence none of us has anything to fear.


Rick ‘Everything’s Bigot-er in Texas’ Perry also took his turn fearmongering, by using a surrogate to state that Christians should vote for Christians over non-Christians such as Jews. Not really. Rick ‘Everything’s Bigot-er in Texas’ Perry’s surrogate really stated Christians should vote for Christians over non-Christians such as Mormons, and claimed Mormonism is a cult.

I used subterfuge to illustrate the point that no one would ever say not to vote for a political candidate because they are a Jew or a Muslim, because Jews are a minority and historically discriminated against, and because Liberals would be like flies on you-know-what if a politician ever made disparaging remarks about voting for a Muslim or called it a cult (and rightfully so).

Mormons (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) are a minority and historically discriminated against, and so you would imagine that Liberals who claim to support the little guy and favor equality would relentlessly attack Rick ‘Everything’s Bigot-er in Texas’ Perry. But what is ironic, is that some liberal media outlets are actually discussing the Mormon/cult issue as it if where a valid question. Liberal bigotry is even more evident when black and white statistics show Liberals are the ones least likely to vote for a Mormon http://www.gallup.com/poll/148100/hesitant-support-mormon-2012.aspx. Some would call this unusual since the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is a democrat and a Mormon. But I think it is clear that many liberals will give a pass on bigotry when it suits their political agenda (the defeat of Romney, the candidate most likely to upset Obama in 2012).

Conclusion: An ‘Us’ vs. ‘Them’ mentality is alive and well in America.

Sat,

I sure am sorry I missed this string! Excellent blog piece, keep 'em comin'! I know you said you were just stopping by the other day, don't be a stranger. I truly enjoy the fact you hung around and responded to as many as you did. Well done all the way around.

On a side note, I certainly hope merrill and tusch aren't one in the same. The personality shift from mindless spambot to psychotic misanthrope is too scary to consider.

Don't even start to tell me about Hitler. Yes, duh, scapegoating and oversimplification are inevitable when desperation mounts and emotions run high. But not only is there a huge difference between where we are and Weimar Germany, the author's comparison is the worst sort of partisan hyperbole. Can you imagine him writing a post titled "Tea Baggers Support Lynch Mobs to String Up Minority Welfare Recipients." Of course not. But he can't see that his "logic" is resulting in exactly that type of indefensible vitriol. He can't pull back to see the obvious that Tea Partiers and OWS are parallel protest movements, one placing more blame on the public sector, and the other on the private (and specifically financial) sector. Both sectors contributed to our economic mess. And yet he writes stereo-typing trash akin to Ann Coulter, garbage even worse than the "all Tea Partiers are racist" arguments I'm sure he was railing against the past few years. His post was totally myopic, an embarrassment to his presumed political persuasion, and an epic FAIL. He and the LJW should be ashamed.

Money in campaign politics aside, these protests boil down to inchoate frustration about corporate loopholes, which both sides seem in favor of closing, and not ending the Bush tax cuts, which has kept the rate on the top bracket at about 36%. Satirical, since you finally got down to the specific nutmeat with gudpoynt above, I call BS on your worries about raising taxes on the top bracket (250K+).

Here's a FactCheck.org link: http://www.factcheck.org/2009/03/half... "only 27 percent of all upper-income tax filers report business income that accounts for more than half of their wages. It’s likely that a small-business owner would make most of his or her income from the small business." And even many of those 27% would be solo freelancers, consultants, passive investors, etc, not mom-and-pop shops. Arguing that raising the tax rate back to 39% for this bracket would create a major drag on the economy is just total bunk sold to you from above. And historically, rates for this top bracket have been much higher. We are truly gutting social services (and even de-criminalizing wife-beating, for God's sake) just to maintain these historically low rates, among other unsustainable absurdities. Rather than look at that history or those numbers, you make appeals to oversimplified principles of fairness and dichotomized libertarian nonsense.

On top of that, the protesters on the street may seem pathetic and/or under-informed, but your "Holocaust" title and supporting section stoop far lower than any of their actions. To suggest that their basic and in many ways legitimate economic resentment could transform into ethnicity-based genocide is truly pathetic, an abject confession of intellectual bankruptcy. Great job at getting everyone's attention in the worst possible way.

The real funny part of this is that Obama would just as soon have these Fleabaggers living on chicken scratch while he maintains his fat-cat sponsorship. The Fleabaggers are too stoned to see this I suppose. I guess if you take a dump on a cop car, you can't be to swift.

The Republicans couldn’t ask for a better group of campaigners against Barack Obama than the various groups of bed-wetters doing these “occupy” protests. We need to support them and keep them going as long as possible. Of course the ObamaMedia is trying to promote the protests with drivel on how the country is embracing the protesters. I wonder which part of these children’s agenda is really resonating with most Americans? Who thinks a $20 p/hr minimum wage is good idea? How about the guaranteed living wage for every American – actually working for it is optional? How about the open all our borders idea? Free college for all? Forgive everyone’s debt on the whole planet? These clowns are little more than juvenile delinquent, idealistic brats who have really never had to stand on their own at any time in their lives. Besides having the skill to sleep in a park, none of them are creative or industrious enough to do this on their own, so the experienced activists from labor, ecological, socialist, communist, etc are really the ones behind the wheel here. Sad really…young, spoiled and lazy minds ripe for exploitation.

I almost forgot...

Since no one ever drove the discussion far enough, or maybe because my implicit argument was clear enough. The main reason I used the headline about the OWS protesters wanting a second holocaust is because it illustrates the point that -- if it is wrong to target jews because of their wealth and prosperity (which it is), then why is it not also wrong to target all the wealthy? Arguments can be made that the bailouts were a bad idea, or the rich aren't paying their fair share, without this US vs. THEM garbage.

Thank you to everyone who took part of this discussion. It was all over the place for a while, but one must expect that on the LJWorld. I may stop by again to argue/opine, but since I am often busy I can't make any promises. Not that my permission is necessary, but please feel free to continue any topics you desire, even though my return is uncertain.

my experience also involves watching a C-Span episode where then US Representative Gene Taylor had to get a police escort out of his own town hall meeting in Moss Point Mississippi concerning the health care bill because your people don't know how to behave especially when egged on by astroturf people like freedomworks headed up by bigot Dick Armey from Texas who referred to Barney Frank as Barney Fag on the senate floor...want to defend your nonsensical statements now??? do you admit that states rights had it's beginnings in South Carolina's attempt at secession in 1829? do you admit that state rights also reared it's ugly head in the effort to illegally remove the Cherokee Nation from Georgia when states rights and ancestor of modern tea party racists Andrew Jackson ignored a US Supreme Court ruling and removed the Cherokees and others by force...do you admit that state rights was a calling card of the southerners who objected to FBI interference into their terrorizing of African, Native, Jewish, and Catholic Americans 50 years ago....better yet do you deny this history like others of your ilk deny evolution and make crazy assertions about riding dinosaurs? I like the way you duck culpability through circular arguements... nine year olds use that tactic also...

---well said Satirical.
the antisemitism of the left, and the occuhippies is well documented.

note when they had their little march on millionaires' homes, they miraculously didn't stop at George Soros' place! and, the media outnumbered the pawltry 500 marchers on that.
the rest of the rabble hung out with the Raving, free condoms, pooping in public, and maundering about across dozens of other causes besides the antisemitism.

violence, arrests, Raving, etc., these are not 99%, more like less than 10%, thank God.

and ... they're turning average americans against them with their "progressive causes" in droves. like in '68.

bye-bye

I know teabaggers are racist....my ex grandfather is one of them satirical. Racist his whole life. Dixiecrat after Harry Truman integrated the military. Wouldn't shake the hand of one my late mother's friends at Baker University in the 1960's. Made fun of one of my late mother's Black classmates to her face as they graduated at KSU in 1985. Referred to the NBA as nothing but Africans as I offered to take him to a New Orleans Hornets game once. Made racist jokes all the time to get a rise out of people just like some of the dimwits on here. Had the tea bags out a couple of weeks after Obama's victory. Double crossed me on my mom's funeral plans in July 2009 and I cut all ties with him and my mom's surviving family. He sounded like the arguement baiting dimwits on here. He and Hurricane Katrina are part of the reason my mom died. He was a 24/7 Fox watcher and he believed all of it and started arguements after we drove a thousand miles down there to the Gulf Coast over politics. As heartless as some of the people on here. I'm not a hypocrite... I've seen the best example of you all in person for 35 of my 41 years.

I looked at the tumblr site. The vast majority of the people posting can be broken down into a prototype story that is something like:

1) I spent a lot of money on an education that may or may not have been useful 2) I made a bad decision or two 3) Now I do not have a job and I have quite a bit of debt.

Yes, there are some people who have problems that were not of their own making but these people are hardly the 99%.

(1) No matter how hard you work, how smart you are, how well educated you are, luck will always play a large factor in your life outcome. (did you win the genetic lottery at birth? were you raised in a household where you were taught proper life skills? did you pick the right stock in 1988?)

(2) Capitalism is by nature a system where money flows to the top, thus ensuring not everyone will be able to "succeed."

(3) Plain and simple fact is that for many people, their employment prospects top out at "would you like fries with that?" Not everyone has the intellectual ability and personality to earn much money.

Get a clue. They want a government run by the people, not by corporations. Yes, it's the government's fault and yes it's the big corporation's fault. They are one of the same anymore. Corporations have been given the same rights as an individual. So if they take jobs out of the country and ruin our economy, shouldn't they be arrested for treason? economic terrorism?

The robber barons of the past created communism. If they had "trickled down" the wealth, then the workers would be content and would never have given Marx a second look. We are in the same situation now. You have rich corporations who have destroyed our economy by moving jobs to other countries in the name of making bigger profits, not big profits, bigger. You have companies that are considered failures, because they didn't grow enough; they grew, but not enough. You have companies who showed false profits and growth by cutting the work force to the bone and cutting worker benefits. Never mind the profit would still be quite large, it just wouldn't be large enough. If a company is making a nice profit for their investors, while providing good jobs for many people, so what if the profits only grow 1% every year? It's still a profit. You have rich corporations who could get people back to work, and give the workers who still have a job a lighter load to bear, but they won't. Why? Because they don't really care about you. They may earn a couple of million a year, but they want to earn 5 million a year. Their greed is going to backfire in the end.

How many jobs could be created if the corporations would quit spending money to buy politicians?

beatrice 2 years, 6 months ago

Wow, what a heaping pile of hate all wrapped in nonsense and untruths.

Name-calling, ridiculous claims about class warfare waged by Obama (by wanting to raise the highest tax rate to a level well below what it was under Reagan -- oh my! -- all because we have a massive debt and have fought wars without raising the money to pay for them. How could he?), accusations about "liberal" media trying to sway the Republican voters away from Romney for -- get this -- an evangelical Christian governor from Texas(!) who some Republicans are trying to label as too liberal, all because it is clear to most that he likely would not win a national election. Wow. Nice stretch of the imagination there. Blame the "liberal" media for a slipping in the polls Republican questioning another Republican's religion. Yes, blame the liberals for this.

The most blatant, of course, is the call for monetary equality in the system being compared to the Holocaust. Talk about your Godwin flag! (Small point of clarificatin: it isn't a call to actually KILL the rich, which kind of is what Hitler's whole point was when it came to the Jews. (Thought you might like to know that detail about the Holocaust for future reference.)

Seeing who the candidates are now, with no more potential shining knights to ride in and save the day, it appears that some on the Right are starting to panic just a bit as they see what they imagine should be a slam dunk vote against Obama for not magically fixing the crashed economy he was handed in like, you know, no time at all, slipping away in the Republican debates.

"Conclusion: An ‘Us’ vs. ‘Them’ mentality is alive and well in America." Yep, thanks for making that point perfectly clear, Satirical.

Now, now, grammaddy, you can't expect them to get a clue and do any research. It's so much easier to point fingers, coin nifty little phrases like Fleabaggers and pretty much swallow whatever the right is pouring down their greedy little gullets. Personally, I almost can't wait til this whole thing goes in the pooper just so they'll finally know, once and for all, that a working person that votes for a Republican is like a chicken who supports Col. Sanders.

If the violent peacenicks don't get their way, we can be that much closer to the day when all of us are as Conservative as a large jar of viagra. Keep it simple. Remember when Rush bagged on McCain??
