DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) The anti-Wall Street protests happening across the country are about to spread to North Texas.
A group is planning a huge march and demonstration in downtown Dallas Thursday and theyre willing to go to jail to get their point across.
The group called Occupy Dallas is an offshoot of a group staging a protest in New York City called Occupy Wall Street.
Groups are demonstrating and protesting government bailouts of big Wall Street institutions, joblessness, global warming and the influence of corporate money in politics among a host of other issues.

Maybe they should be working on finding jobs.
No one pays any attention. If they break the law— shoot them without a trial like Obama did on that US citizen in Yemen. Forget the constitution — just kill the Sobs.
Progressive marxist unions are behind this, supported by Obama. The strategy is Anarchy to lead to canceling the elections.
These people are such losers. I love that they do this though. It wastes their time and their political capital, and they will accomplish absolutely nothing except spend more of their parents money.
Holder’s mobs are moving into action!
Holder’s and Jones’s mobs are moving into action!
Isn’t it sort of odd that CBS knows so much about the plans of this radical outfit - it almost sounds as if CBS is a part of the entire operation....but noooooooo.
I have no doubt someone is behind these groups. Spontaneous is a small group in one city. They are too coordinated to not have some financial and logistical support from someone. The majority of these protesters, and I have met liberal protesters, are as dumb as rocks. They follow instructions and scripts from someone.
Well, they have all of their data on a public page on Facebook, so it’s not hard to figure out the details.
These vermin need to occupy a shower stall.
Dallas is liberal and they’ll get away with their crap.
Ft. Worth? Different story if they tried their crap in Ft. Worth, they’d probably turn the cattle loose on em and I’d go down there to see it and cheer the cattle on:
These unemployed, communist gather a mere 5000 marchers in one of the most LIBERAL cities in the world and it's news?
I hope John Wiley Price shows up. He’s always entertaining.
Please oh please let this happen. A little time in Lew Sterret will do wonders for these spoiled brats' 'tude.
Soros the billionaire funding
Van Jones multi millionaire running it
This is all a a Jessie Jackson extortion shake down
Obama got more money off wall street than the right but we all know they are not giving any where near as much this time around and are sitting on profits .
Obama needs a billionaire and is not getting it
so what do they do.
They get all the lefty groups to protest against wall street and on the side they say to wall street give us money for next year or these protests continue.
I gurantee you that this is all a big shake down and they’re using the left wing fool who are just too dumb again to understand this.
Look we have anti war, green energy, code ink, homo rights, women rights, against death penalty etc all these groups are not in agreement but all of a sudden they all come together and collect their pre made signs while Van Jones has been saying this would happen in the last two months.
Wall street has always given more to the left so why would they protest their biggest money givers
The protesters are too stupid to figure this out and that it is a man who is funding this who made billions on the market and gives millions to the left.
This is all an extortion racket and as soon as wall street gives money the demo stops .
Unions do this all the time
Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton does this all the time
This is so obvious
`If you are unwilling to listen to what others believe, you are a slave to your own opinions.’ Thomas Paine, loosely paraphrased.
`bailouts of big Wall Street institutions,’ Businesses “too big to fail”? They’ve got a point.
`joblessness,’ You gotta pound the pavement to find a job, but I don’t think they’ll find work this way. They’ve got too much time on their hands. Take the little thugs to the recruiting station.
`global warming’ In a couple months they’re going to wish it were warmer. `Global warming’ is BS on stilts.
`and the influence of corporate money in politics’ Yeah, and the student body president election, why, that’s just a popularity contest. Uh, looking back—that’s exactly what is is ... keep your hands off my stash kiddies.
Do you think this is the `Hope and Change’ they voted for?
sorry meant to say zero needs a billion for his election not billionaire as he already has a couple of them
The muslim Turd Burglar can sue us if he doesn’t like it.
Oh, wait. Maybe not LOL
They’d be askin’ for a heap-o’ trouble. A HEAP of trouble, boy.
up to day info
there is a newbie named Beckett08 who keeps posting their photo’s, keeps informing us how big the crowd is , giving us a link to their site.
I’ve asked now 3 times if she thinks they’re stupid and dumb but alas no answer., maybe I’m getting paranoid over newbie trolls, LOL
And, all that street trash that's out there now don't even realize that after they serve their purpose, they are expendable.
Obama is the leader of this movement plain and simple. His “the rich don’t pay their fair share” has caused all of this. I think I will drive by tomorrow to see the dregs of society. Should be a hoot.
Yeah I’ve seen that one and I haven’t made up my mind if he’s on the up and up or just plain stupid.
Perhaps this “Anonymous” crowd should be introduced to several of those minivan-sized longhorns.
I’ve asked 3 maybe 4 times today and a couple of times the other day and never an answer.
The poster seems to take great delight in telling us all how many are there, what groups are there etc.
We;ll see but it does seem strange and so I’m not the only one who has noticed this then LOL.
>>>Perhaps this Anonymous crowd should be introduced to several of those minivan-sized longhorns.>>>
I’d pay some money to watch it.
I think your suspicion is warranted especially since they think they can pull us ignernt tea partiers into their cause.
Bad idea. The Dallas Federal Building is HEAVILY armed. Not a good idea at all.
This is Texas/OU Weekend, which means this was already a weekend to avoid Dallas.
“Progressive marxist unions are behind this, supported by Obama. The strategy is Anarchy to lead to canceling the elections.”
Something else going on.
The crap was about to hit the fan with fast and furious, solyndra and now Obamacare with SCOTUS. They are wagging the dog.
Thing is, if the Marxists want a fight, why not give them one?
They got a job - protesting, blocking streets and roads and making life tougher for taxpayers.
Too bad there are no more real investagative reporters.
I would like to see someone come up with evidence on exactly who is footing the bill for these planned "spontaneous" demonstrations.
the poster still refuses to call them stupid and told me it was a left wing tactic.
I really wish we could get a group of Freepers together to head out there together. Maybe do lunch. Unfortunately, those who would be interested tend to have responsibilities, unlike the protesting sheep.
I intend to go. I’ll take my camera, as usual. Hopefully the one with the video function still works. I’d love to get some video and audio. We’ll see.
The Rats certainly want this and whoever funds it will go down hard since
they no longer control congress. Hopefully after 2012 we'll have a super majority.
That has to be the most UN-American comment ever on FR. I am surprised its tolerated here. Think about life without the Constitution.
I just watched the South Park episode “Die, Hippie, Die”
I think it was meant as hyperbole. I hope it was.
Actually, it is not necessary to have a lot of orchestration, though modern social media make it a lot easier.
Liberal protests draw protestors. They need not be in agreement with one another, they have solidarity in their common hatred of “the Man” which keeps them going.
I have been to many human rights festivals or other such events, and noticed the general hodgepodge of complaints merely looking for a place to let it out.
An exception to this would be the protests I observed over the first gulf war, though I could not help noticing, and asking about, the fact that the general appearance of the protestors in question was one of hatred, not peacefulness.
I observed a rally to commemorate the holocaust that exemplified this. Every Tom, Dick, and Suzy with a chip on the shoulder got up to complain about his or her particular grievance - they were legion - with no particular thing holding them together other than the chance to vent their anger.
The actual holocaust survivor who spoke had actually been there and done that when it came to being a victim, but he exuded peace and acceptance and determination that the wannabees who rode on his coat-tails could not begin to fathom, much less emulate, as they did not have it in themselves in the first place.
I have wandered a bit - my point was that the majority of protestors I have known are angry people looking for any excuse to get together and make a fuss; they may be easily manipulated because of this, but it doesn’t require a lot of coordination and support, or even a common cause to bring them together - they just need a reason to go there, see and be seen. There are orchestrators, no doubt, you can easily identify them, but most of the time j random protestor is a pretty unaware kid being led about and not even realizing it.
What disturbs me more than the “hippies” getting involved are the unions.
This is almost a perfect cause for the Unions. Almost everything the protesters are against the Unions are against. I have to wonder if they have been involved all along, particularly the SEIU.
Love those longhorns!
...”all that street trash that’s out there now don’t even realize that after they serve their purpose, they are expendable.”
They’re just responding to Obama’s call for public service.
A recruiting ad might read like this:
“Job Title: Free Speech Activist (OS-0000, GS-00), Democratic Civilian Service, Street Level Command, Resident Entitlements Directorate, Liberal Arts Corps, Major Drama Division. Civilian temporary, 17-90 years of age, no benefits, not to exceed one year, possible monthly extension based on performance data criteria. Must have recent smart phone skills including HD photo, audio and video. US Citizenship not required. (EOE)”
Yes, the Constitution is very important. It protect you and your family . It is the thin line from you and tyranny . It is what the lawyer does to return you to your family when you are wrongfully charged. It is conservatism.
