Dear Editor

“So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class. Long live revolution! Long live socialism!” Crowd: [Cheers.]

This is a speech made from the Los Angeles Occupy movement.

Anti-Semitism, anti-Capitalism, anti-Americanism, rapes, drug usage, sexual assaults, use of children as human shields, property destruction, pushing elderly people down stairs, and murder. Did I also mention tens of millions of dollars in costs to U.S. Cities and businesses, plus thousands of arrests?

These are just some of the appalling happenings as a result of the so called “peaceful” protests of the somewhat violent strewn Occupy movements.

I recently viewed various footages from the Occupy Wall Street protests. I was stunned at the confrontational behavior and ignorance of these people. Not only are these people defiant, they are, what’s the word? Oh yes-freaks. Public nudity, obscene hateful language/gestures, and mental uncertainty were prevalent throughout.

So, one may ask, what are they protesting? Well a reoccurring topic is the idea that wealth should be distributed fairly, what is known as “economic equality”. However, wealth is not distributed in this country. Bill O’Reilly in reference to money distribution states, “You either earn it, steal it, inherit it, or win the lottery, there’s no distribution.”

So who is to blame for rousing this movement? Many direct the culpability at President Barack Obama.

What we see is a clear strategy from the President to “Divide and Conquer” and anger the middle class. It is a cynical and maniacal strategy to pit the angry lower class against the upper class.

An article from CNN reports: President Barack Obama is responsible for the start of the Occupy Wall Street movement according to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. “It would not have happened but for his class warfare,” said Giuliani.

But why? Why would President Obama promote these sometime violent and costly protests? Because he wants to take advantage of the down and “abused” to get their support. It’s genius. Even history tells us that it’s easy to rise to power by throwing fuel on the fire which means creating a social revolution and acting as a solution to a problem that you helped to create. Many of you may disagree with me, but unfortunately history is on my side.

The wealthy conservative Jews blamed for everything-Nazis rise to power. Your oppressors are the “conservative establishment” and the rich-French Reign of Terror.

These are just a few examples of the use of class warfare throughout the ages that led to terrible conclusions.

Will the Occupy movement and economic turmoil win a reelection bid for President Obama? It all depends on the growing divide between classes.

People are envious, eager to point blame for their own misfortunes. Corporate spending and the “rich” are just causing further anger and division.

No one blames Mr. Obama for using this strategy. He cannot run on his success because has no success-failed leader. He can only win by resorting to class warfare. “He is a desperate politician who is now pitting one group against another.” says House Speaker John Boehner.

Obama is quoted as saying “Now, the Republicans they said, ‘Well, this is class warfare.’ You know what? If asking a billionaire to pay their fair share of taxes, to pay the same tax rate as a plumber or a teacher is class warfare, then you know what? I’m a warrior for the middle class. I’m happy to fight for the middle class.”

He accuses the upper class of not paying their fair share. However, the top 1% of Americans already paid 38% of income taxes. Why punish success? When was the last time a poor person hired you to do anything? And now we want to make the upper class pay a fair share? They already do.

President Obama is a “warrior” for the middle class. Who wouldn’t want to elect someone who will fight for them? If we are to blind as a nation to spot this deception then we deserve whatever becomes of it. Ask yourself, are you better off now than you were four years ago? If the answer is no then find out why. Don’t believe in false promises and fraudulent solutions.

It’s not the conservative rich to blame, or the Jews, or even the Occupy protesters. It’s the captain of ship.

So far the idea of grabbing pitchforks and taking to the streets sounds like a solution. But before you do that, do your homework and find out who is really responsible for this economic turmoil.
