#OWS and the Socialism of Fools

Posted on | October 25, 2011 | 19 Comments

August Bebel called anti-Semitism the “Socialism of Fools,” and MRC’s Joe Schoffstall had no trouble finding it in the Zuccotti Park mob:

“Israel is white Europe — eastern Europeans — who has [sic] usurped and occupied Arab land, and they have displaced the indigenous Arab Palestinian people at gunpoint. When Israel was founded in 1948 … in 1949, Israel secretly began working on a nuclear … atomic nuclear program to wipe out her neighbors. So the hatred of the Arabs for Israel is understandable. … And I’ll say that the Jews control Wall Street. Google ‘Jewish billionaires.’ Google ‘Jews and the Federal Reserve bank.’ Google ‘Jews and Wall Street.’ America’s finances is [sic] controlled by the Jews. Wall Street, the media, the legal profession — Jewish money is the engine in politics. … The Jews commit more white-collar crime than any other ethnic group on the earth and they go unprosecuted because they can buy their way out of it.”

Scratch an anti-capitalist, and a Jew-hater bleeds.

    Is posting here a waste of time?

    Yes, but they finally reached a compromise on the weeks-old controversy about drumming times, so maybe they can work out their other demands by Christmas – 2014.

    Alas the consensus may not last.
    At the end of the post.

    “Rational discourse with the drummers has failed, there is no point in attempting to talk to them, as opposed to using body language in a non-violent and non-aggressive manner, while still showing our disapproval.”

    Google ‘Jewish billionaires.’ Google ‘Jews and the Federal Reserve bank.’ Google ‘Jews and Wall Street.’

    I don’t have the heart to tell them who runs Google.

    #OWS is a Rovian conspiracy. Where else can you get classic soundbites like these to populate even the most inept GOP contender’s TV spots? Muuuwaaahahahahaaaa!

    “Socialism for fools” seems just a tad bit redundant to me…

    Do the OWS motley gang realize that the “Jew Soros” is bankrolling them?

    Yes, ole Al was just another tool of the New Salem Missionary Baptist Jewish cabal. A bunch of white Europeans who took over the land of the Cherokee and their free access to iTunes. I am sure the guy in the video is about to denouce Gore in a minute or two. Probably needs to check the notes he left in his tinfoil hat first.

    How come the Jewish folks have taken over the good cabals.  When are the Eskimos going to get their turn?  When will the Zorasters get their cabal going?  When are the Buddhists going to take over the world?  I want a good Zulu conspiracy/cabal. 

    Hmm, maybe I can set up a website to start a cabal and then sell it to the OWS people. seems right

    When socialists rail against the “rich”, they only mean some people with wealth and high incomes, but not others.  For example, they never complain how much Mick Jagger earned on his last world tour, or how much Tom Hanks is being paid for his latest movie.

    Elizabeth Warren, Grandma to Occupy Wall Street…

    Way to own that anti-Semitism! Elizabeth Warren, U.S. senate candidate from Massachusetts and erstwhile protector of the common woman, claims that she is the intellectual impetus behind Occupy Wall Street….

    it IS a conspiracy –but the Jews are only part of it. The real power is being wielded by the Successfullers. The cabal of ‘know-hows’ who keep adding value to their environment. Down with the ‘Know-Hows’!
