FRANCES FOX PIVEN: I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are here are really wonderful. I would do anything to help them. (TV Show: Democracy Now!)
Cash is in the "formula" somewhere.
She desperately needs a late night brain aneurism.
It’s called the “Tea Party”.
Isn’t this why napalm was invented?
that’s the Piven in Cloward -Piven
Eric Holder's people are a minority and by definition would not constitute a "popular uprising.
If there were a true "popular uprising," it is quite possible that Ms. Piven would not be among the survivors.
There’ll be elections. The Tea Party will see to that. That is, we the people.
There are more of us than them. Appears to be the Hippie Revolution all over again. Didn’t work then and won’t work now. They may have had the edge on public opinion in the 60’s & 70’s with regard to the Viet Nam war, but they are on the down side of opinion with regard to Socialism being something we want in this country right now. The JackAss in the White Office has to go along with his band of merry men.
I understand that it may be their desire but it won’t happen. If they think suspending elections is an option, they seriously underestimate the response they’ll get from people like me.
Earth ot Piven...it’s been tried.
What these asshats don’t realize..well there is a lot the run of the mill useful idiot doesn’t realize but the organizers and the “brains” of these operations don’t realize — this crap never worked one time and the only reason it was as tolerable and lasted as long as it did in so many places is because the American free enterprise system enabled it. Without us, it is North Korea in short order.
There will be elections next year. No matter how much Obastard and the other America hating radicals do no want it to happen.
She OBVIOUSLY didn't see the "Uprising" in the 2010 Elections, and the LANDSLIDE that I'm praying is gonna happen in 2012, when the REAL Tea Partiers go to the polls IN DROVES, FAR outweighing the FRAUD and multi-voters.
Even an ATTEMPT to somehow stop the 2012 Elections will not stop the Take-Back-The-Constitution Movement that is growing.
From Joan of Arc to tenured armchair leftists trotting out the same old ‘do as I say not as I do’ nonsense.
Apart from being dangerously insane they are also lazy.
Helen Thomas has just been dethroned as the ugliest dinosaur ever unearthed.
I definitely agree, we do need a popular uprising,
against the elitists, the “ruling class”, the “government class”, socialists in general, and communists in particular.
Frances would make a great “Doctor Who”, don’t ya think?
I do not mean to insult universal service requirements (the Draft) but I think it's fair to say that there are those who do not want to be "drafted" into the ranks of the long-term unemployed. They can be used.
So.. our right of demonstrating will be used by the 60's aged Marxist-Alinsky campus spoiled brats and their ideological issue to turn into violent and deadly rioting.
Like the '60s it matters not the race or economic status of the demonstrators. The Left radicals can incite almost anyone to violence.
The 1960s all over again. Handle it the right way this time. Put an end to ones behind it all.
