SWAT Raid on Organizers of Occupy Seattle & E4E

Door beaten in by SWAT police raid—


Door beaten in by SWAT police raid. 


Early morning, July 10, SWAT police forced their way into the Seattle apartment of organizers from the Occupy movement. The sleeping residents scrambled to put on clothes as they were confronted with automatic weapons.

The neighbor Natalio Perez heard the attack from downstairs: “Suddenly we heard the bang of their grenade, and the crashing as police entered the apartment. The crashing and stomping continued for a long time as they tore the place apart.”

After the raid, the residents pored over the papers handed them by a detective. One explained: “This warrant says that they were specifically looking for ‘anarchist materials’ — which lays out the political police state nature of this right there. In addition they were looking for specific pieces of clothing supposedly connected with a May First incident.

When the police finally left, they did not arrest anyone...

Fragmented unity at Philly’s upcoming Occupy National Gathering
by Jake Blumgart
Waging Nonviolence
June 26, 2012

Since the end of 2011, when police shut down most encampments, the Occupy movement’s future has been uncertain. Without the long-term occupations that gave the movement its name, where would participants meet and make their presence felt? Would the movement be able to sustain itself without these rallying points? Would it release policy demands or try to bring down a big bank?

The upcoming five-day Occupy National Gathering in Philadelphia will address some of these questions, but without attempting to speak for Occupy Wall Street, the Occupy movement as a whole, or anyone beyond those in attendance.

“I think this could be a turning point for the movement,” says Dustin Slaughter, an Occupy Philly activist who is handling media relations for the National Gathering. “Refocusing the movement, prioritizing things. It won’t be about a list of demands, but starting to work together on a national scale.”

The National Gathering will last from June 30 through July 4, and representatives from 92 occupations are expected to be present. Caravans from the south, west and north will converge on the city on Saturday, June 30. The Gathering will be packed with actions, workshops and speakers, including Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, influential New York Occupier Alexis Goldstein, organizer Alexa O’Brien and David Gespass, president of the National Lawyers Guild. Activists from the massive demonstrations in Quebec will be in attendance...

That is the collective judgement - even from the left.

Note the date of many of these stories: November and December 2011.  Yet another reason why I didn't feel the effort of writing my own brief essay opposing their views and predicting their demise was worth the electrons.

Not a case of 20/20 hindsight.  If Occupy were a stock, I would have shorted it massively. 

Get over it, bitter clingers.  Even BDB has moved on to more worthy topics of discussion via her on-air gig. 

 

My former show was a political talk show, plain and simple.  Topics were chosen by the host, based on what was big in the news in the moment.  That's how talk radio works.  What got play on that show has no bearing on my personal positions.

I would prefer you not use me as fodder for your position without knowing where I stand.  I haven't posted here in ages and we are not in communication in any way.  So I'm not sure why you would think it would be okay to speak as to my position on anything, especially something as weighty as my political beliefs.

Reports of Occupy’s Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

OccupyWallSt
June 10, 2012

People can’t seem to stop eulogizing the Occupy Movement.

Since the eviction of the protestors at Freedom Plaza last November, it’s become a media cliché to report on the “Death of Occupy.” Articles pop up all over the web, blithely reporting on the failed second wind of Occupy, this lackluster “American Spring,” and the May Day general strike that didn’t quite shut the system down.

It should be no surprise that the mainstream media is eager to report on Occupy’s supposed demise. Even ignoring the fact that the corporate-owned media has a strong desire to never see social movements such as Occupy succeed, the media, as a rule, generally needs to put a dramatic narrative to everything it reports. To them, every story ought to have a captivating story arch with a beginning, middle, and an end.

In the media’s eyes, the story that was Occupy began when the magazine Adbusters put out a call to Occupy Wall Street on September 17. Many people heeded the call, yet, according to the media’s story, the movement only received its dramatic momentum when cops were photographed attacking and pepper-spraying the nonviolent protestors. It reached its early demise when the police violently cleared out the various encampments. Now, except for a few curmudgeons who can’t seem to understand that Occupy is over, all that remains of Occupy is its populist rhetoric of the 99%—which has been dutifully hawked up by Democratic front-groups such as MoveOn.org to help refuel the Obama election machine...

It needs to be remembered that the word “occupy” is a verb. It’s a call to action, not the action itself. The word “occupy” was useful for getting individuals and organizations previously isolated or focused on one-issue grievances out into the streets. Whether the individuals involved wanted to merely overturn Citizens United or overthrow the entire capitalist system itself, Occupy was the first all-encompassing protest movement to occur within many of our lifetimes. Whether or not the word “Occupy” continues to be the word to describe this movement is not important. What is important is that there’s wide community of opposition being formed across many social barriers, and those who hold power are very afraid.

so who are the economic elites?

and who are the political elites?

i'll guess that the economic elites are wall street firms/banks that have bribed the corrupt government officials to get favorable laws and rules enacted to benefit them at the taxpayer's expense

and the political elites are high level government officials elected by the people

am i close?

 
Sounds spot on to me.
