Occupy Admits Its Real Goal: Communism
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 20 August 2012 | Editorial

Posted on 08/21/2012 3:09:00 PM PDT by IBD editorial writer

The Left: An Occupy organizer admitted over the weekend that the goal of his protest group was to "overthrow the capitalist system and build communism." So the cat's out of the bag again on this bunch. Where is the outrage?

The true agenda of the Occupy movement has been revealed — it's a totalitarian one. Billing itself as a spontaneous people's revolution and embraced by the media and Democrat political establishment, Occupy is really a destructive band of thugs whose goal is the violent demise of democracy.

Speaking at a "People's Assembly" in Washington, former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash told Occupy members his goal was to "make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism."

The Occupy organizer added that he was "trying to learn something from the examples of the Soviet Union, Red China and Castro's Cuba. ... What can we learn from them so we can build a more successful movement to transform capitalist society?" he asked.

This attachment to the miserable failure of communism — an ideology that left 100 million people dead in the 20th century and met its demise as an idea after millions rose up in 1989-90 to repudiate it — is insane.

The left never learns. Our only hope is that they admit what they stand for. Freaks.

Where is today’s Sen. McCarthy? We need people willing to use the “C” word to attack those hiding behind the lie-beral or progressive label.

Everyone of these progressives, lie-berals, Marxist communist is a traitor to all of the rest of us. Filthy commie bastards.

Thank you public school systems for cranking out so many ignorant of the founders and their brilliance all to further you communist agenda.

This will get zero coverage in the MSM but at least it’s on the record that OWS is a commie organization, making it a bit stickier for Democrat politicians to keep supporting and praising it.

Admitting that communism is the goal is useless if one doesn’t understand that communism doesn’t mean singing Kumbiya, but is death and destruction on a mass scale.

Ya know, it is real pity that that things have degenerated so badly that we can people openly agitating for communism and a Federal Administration that supports them. And some local administrations.

In a sane nation, we’d be beating hell out them and rounding them up.

Would that be a fundamental transformation?

Anyway, we have already learned from those communists states that if you slaughter enough people in the way of your Utopian fantasies that you can attain the misery of collectivism. But there must be killing, lots of killing first. Would recommend reading up on Stalin and Mao for a primer. But not those romanticized historical accounts found in public education, something factual.

Indeed, distribution of goodies and fair shares is not governing or building anything, more like looting.

And even investors will put their money in a bigger bag simply because a winning business hit needs several attempts with significant funding, something the so called “village concept” cannot figure.

......... oh, and that in itself is a widely shared secular concept known by gamblers and investors (the latter having calculated odds of success greater than 50%). Communists gamble on odds of less than 50% because it catters to greedy, spendy and irresponsible people who waste...... hope and change...

I ran into a self proclaimed ‘highly edcuated economist’ last night. after a bit of back and forth, he labelled himself as a progressive. he then went on about evil rich people and how selfish they are... and how their wealth should be confiscated to help the ‘little guy’. nonstop bs.

the irony that this ‘highly educated economist’ was also dead broke and going check to check totally escaped him... yet I’m supposed to listen to his views on how the country should be run

trying to learn something from the examples of the Soviet Union, Red China and Castro's Cuba.

Like government enforced work camps, and these young OWS folks will be the first ones forced out into the fields. Their glorious leaders at the top will want to eat.

In the past, these OWS protester types were known as "Usefull idiots."

Not to try it is the obvious answer. It is a matter of some astonishment that the Marxist True Believer can see every single country organized under Marxian principles turn into a ruling-class police state that its non-Party-member citizens want nothing more than to escape, and still fervently believe that except for some unknown factor it all would have worked out as theory describes. The unknown factor is the system itself. It does not work.

The reason for the continuing attraction of this failed dogma to the young and uninformed is very simple - it provides a sanction for committing violence and theft, and violence and theft happen to be fun so long as you're not the victim. For the victim there is only dismissal that somehow they had it coming. People whose political insight goes no deeper than that are unworthy of running a society but it doesn't prevent them from trying.

The Class of 2016 has no Idea what difference it makes which political system we live under. They were never taught, and a Utopian commune sounds good to them. My most sincerest wish after a conservative awakening, is that America's youth are taught about history and political systems. I am so tired of young people telling me we live in a Democracy.

Same here and I let them have it with both barrels when I explain that “This country is a Constitutionally guided Representive Republic’. They look at me like I had horns growing out of my head. Its really not their fault, its what they are taught in their Socialist oriented school system. I think the Socialists/Communists have been working toward this for a long time.

The word OCCUPY itself is, to me, a word of TERROR.

The Left, OWS or the homosexual crowd of losers would want millions of us on the other side DEAD. To any Republicans, and there may have been some at first in OWS, you are totally naive fools.

Every time Communism fails, the far left has a different excuse and those excuses have ranged from improper application, to the right people not being in charge.

Right now, the excuse I hear more then any other is that communist nations are having to compete with free markets and that if it where not for those pesky capitalist, the world would be a communist paradise.

So, we have the war against capitalism, and it's being waged all over the world.

As we've seen with the Occupy Movement, once they get tired of trying to convince and indoctrinate everyone to their way of thinking, they WILL turn violent.

Once they turn violent, as they always have in the past, that's when things will get real interesting.

I think that Julian Assange suddenly emerging again in the news big time is just more hand in glove with the diversionary tactics of Obama. At one of Assange’s “rallies”, there was at least one guy wearing that weird evil looking mask that the OWS crowd was wearing all over the world a few months back. (The “cohesion” symbol of the occupy crowd, I guess.) Assange is all “look at me”, “look at me”, and why?

The problem is,most of the GOPe,is leftwing, not liberal,but leftwing and is fully onboard most of Obama’s agenda. Every once in a while,mostly around election time,the repubs give us a little ‘Theatre’ and pretend their Conservative. The only time the repubs make a vicious all out assault,is when they are attacking Conservatives as in last years Debt Ceiling Fight. Remember Boehner telling everyone ,”To get their asses in line” and McCain referring to the Tea Party as “Hobbitts”,for daring to oppose a raise in the debt ceiling? Other than Sarah Palin,there aren’t many actual Conservatives in the repub Party!

For starters, you idiots should learn that those countries did not have an armed general populace. The United States has 50 million gun owners. Most of whom would rather kill the Communists then be their slaves. Therefore, you will never succeed here.

Insane liberal idiots. They keep doing the same thing other prior liberal idiots have attempted and expect that it will somehow, now, work.

Oh the ones before us didn’t do this right, or that right, or failed to deal with this, that, and the other. They were just not smart enough to pull it off, but we are this time.

Never ever look at the continual failures and admit their ideas are actually bad and can’t work because they are so 180 degree against the train of human nature.

“Suspect” is a cautious way to put it. All evidence points to this conclusion. Nothing at all suggests anything to the contrary.

there's a wonderful short story by Richmal Crompton about a group of young men in the 1920s (all are about 17-19) who get "inspired" by the idea of communism where they can ask their fathers for their "fair share"

however, unbeknownst to them, their little brothers are listening and also get "inspired".

So, on the day they ask their fathers, they discover that their bicycles, cameras, money etc. are missing. They then see their little brothers coming along, happy with their "shared goods" and spank them :)

Well, in the end they cancel the plan with their fathers and say "it's ok when you want to get your share of other people's goods, it's when other people want to get their share of YOUR goods, that's the catch" :)

My experience with economists is that a significant portion of them are actually barking mad. Really. Complete moonbats.

They really believe that “We owe it to ourselves” garbage about the deficit and think we should take money away from the rich and give it to the “poor” because the poor will spend it right away, thus boosting our economy.

Really. They actually think that way.
