The White House continued its embrace of the Occupy Wall Street protests on Sunday, using the strongest terms yet to identify President Barack Obama with the growing movement.
In a call previewing Obama’s upcoming bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama “will continue to acknowledge the frustration that he himself shares,” about Washington’s laggard response to the financial crisis.
Earnest added that while on the trip, Obama will make it clear that he is fighting to make certain that the “interests of 99 percent of Americans are well represented” — the first time the White House has used the term to differentiate the vast majority of Americans from the wealthy.
……I’ll tell you what, if asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a plumber or a teacher or a bus driver makes me a warrior for the middle class, I will wear that charge with honor,” he told donors in Dallas earlier this month.
The SCOAMF strikes again. The wealthy in this country pay millions more than the average plumber, teacher, and bus driver combined. Gawd, if brains were dynamite B. Hussein wouldn’t have enough to blow his fucking nose.
A video of some of Obama’s ideological comrades. They hate capitalism almost as much as he does.
Lots of Marxist/Leninist talking points. “Bourgeoisie”, “economic justice”, and “inequality”. The one little communist wants to ‘eat’ her landlord for the crime of being rich and owning property all over Oakland. The guy in the Peruvian winter hat gives a lecture on capitalists, especially whoever owns the restaurant across the street. He/she apparently is an evil bourgeoisie without even knowing it. “Their relationship to production is one of domination, it’s not one of being subordinated as the worker usually from Central America…”, he explained. So what about the iPhones and various other portable internet devices produced by capitalism and carried around by the “occupy” wingnuts? Are people exploited for their production? “But you know, says one protester, it’s actually helping me record folks and get their perspective on what’s going on with “occupy Wall Street”, and I will be posting this on Facebook and Twitter”.
Taking advantage of the inventions produced by capitalists, which made our lives immeasurably better, to spread the gospel of Marx. I get it.
Nancy Pelosi loves them too.
The anti-semitic, communist, nazi, anarchist proletariat that claims to be a “99%” majority, is now part of his campaign strategy for 2012. The contrived “99%” story may appeal to the mob of unruly socialist derelicts who squat and destroy any place they “occupy”, but the rest of America knows better.
