Communists Protest Capitalist Wall Street

From a cheering Associated Press:

Workers march on Wall Street, protest big banks

By Cristian Salazar, Associated Press Writer Fri Apr 30

NEW YORK – Thousands of workers and union leaders marched on Wall Street on Thursday to express their anger over lost jobs, the taxpayer-funded bailout of financial institutions and questionable lending practices by big banks.

The rally was organized by the AFL-CIO and an association of community groups. It included a diverse mixture of union workers, activists, the unemployed, and homeowners threatened by foreclosure.

"These guys are like pirates," said small business owner Karen Casamassima, of New York, who called for "economic patriotism" and held up a sign depicting a jewel encrusted skull with the words, "Financial Terrorists."

Hmm. What an odd thing to have on a poster. Especially when it sometimes seems like the left is just trying to finish the job that the Muslim terrorists started in 1993 and tried to pull off again in 2001 – and several times since.

Earlier in the day, noisy protesters with signs took over two bank building lobbies on Manhattan’s Park Avenue in a prelude to the rally.

More than 100 people entered a midtown building housing JPMorgan Chase offices. They handed a bank executive a letter requesting a meeting with the CEO, and chanted "Bust up! Big banks!" and "People power!"

A half-hour later, they were calmly escorted outside by officers

It looks like Mr. Obama really wants to send Wall Street a message. He didn’t call out any SWAT teams to protect the banks. Instead he sent in his union and ACORN thugs to give them a little scare. 

At the very least, Mr. Obama is telling these bankers and CEOs that he is no longer going to stand between them and ‘the folks with pitchforks.’

They then walked a few blocks up the avenue and crowded into the lobby of the Seagram Building, where Wells Fargo and Wachovia, the bank it merged with in 2008, have offices

As we recall, Seagram’s is run by a very well known Democrat party fat cats, the Bronfman family.  Who, despite being Canadians, have been major power brokers in the Democrat party for many years.

And, lest we forget, Wells Fargo and Wachovia got all of those toxic mortgages that caused them so much trouble from the Democrat fat cats, Herb and Marion Sandler. The Sandlers are second only to George Soros in creating and funding Democrat front organizations, such as the Center For American Progress.

So exactly who were these union and ACORN bravos protesting?

Nevertheless, we believe we have the obvious solution for all of Wall Street’s problems: unionize. Just think what a PR coup that would be!

Wall Street bankers would immediately become the petted darlings of the Democrats, our watchdog media and the rest of the left — even the Communist Party USA.

As Mr. Obama is fond of saying, "everybody likes pie." And those poor union leaders of the AFL-CIO and SEIU just want to get their slice of the Wall Street pie. They just want a little ‘social justice.’

Come to think of it, maybe this unionization process is already underway. But they want the government to take over Wall Street first — so that they could then form a public sector government union.

Which, after all, is really the best of all possible worlds.

    I can’t wait to see the next scene.

    This one is worthy of an Oscar. We have finally discoverd what Obamy is good at – directing outrage melodramas.

    But how long will they make us wait for the sexually titillating parts?

    And where is rage boy?

    Just from the photo you can tell it was a union (read that commie) backed demonstration.

    All the signs are repeated, even the ones that are supposed to look like hand made signs.

    Yo!…lefites…don’t print them up by the dozen if you want it to look like a grass roots protest.

    Which begs the question…How many of these protesters are paid? How many hold union cards?

    You know of the unions that killed the goose that laid the golden egg? Now that the goose is dead….you want everyone else to pay your way.

    Speaking of protests…I think I heard that there are going to be in a slew of them in cities across the nation tomorrow to protest the immigration laws.

    I’m going to be interested in seeing how “mostly peaceful” they will be according to the MSM. And how polite they are as they protest. And how many swat teams are going to be coming out to keep them on the sidewalk

    Remember the tea partiers were not allowed off the sidewalk…before and they brought out the swat team to ensure that grandma didn’t get too rowdy.

    Gonna be interesting!

      Again, easy to identify the template:

      ~Union paid protest signs
      ~People bussed in to gain ‘credibility points’ for the party
      ~ALWAYS present the ‘everyman’ SCRUFFY bearded union guy, who is slightly overweight.
      ~Show diversity even though union people don’t like blacks, gays, or abortion, but hey, ‘you march for me, I march for you.’
      ~Direct the media to predetermined crowd members with predetermined questions and predetermined answers.
      ~Marketing Marketing Marketing!

      It’s all a show and it’s all thought control. There is no legit discussion (if there was, homosexuality, global warming, would have been defeated more than a decade ago) I am shocked that some Republicans are easily intimidated by these showcases, show some spine wimps!

    The left is a collection of adult children that have NO CONCEPT of how society functions and operates. That is why socialism and communism has always been a total failure.

    HOWEVER, the left wing does a fantastic job of exploiting any errors made by Republicans or conservatives. Had Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, KKK recruiter Robert Byrd, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, or any of the other giant screw-ups been Republicans, they would have been harassed, embarrassed, and chased out of town DECADES ago. They would have been a campaign liability to the party as long as they were members.

    This is the BIGGEST FAILURE of the Republicans, to not embarrass the left-wing with the communist death count of the 20th century, Hitler’s failed socialist policies, and the idiocy and moral relativism of leftist voters and leaders. For God’s sake! These people glowingly support homosexuality, the biggest and easiest target of criticism the universe has ever laid in the lap of Republicans, yet they do nothing.

    It is so pathetically easy to beat these people at their own game, yet Republicans keep losing the battle and the war….

    I tried to organize, rally, and focus the College Republicans (when I was a member) to do something other than give speeches to the choir, and booze it up, but guess what? They only wanted to preach to the choir and booze it up and be the poor victimized minority. –ugh!

    Is time off to protest and overtime paid after 40 hours to do so in ALL of their contracts?

  5. BannedbytheTaliban says:

    Seldom in the history of the world have corporations or businesses deprived people of their rights or freedoms. When they do it is with the blessing of government. Tyranny, oppression, and discrimination are solely the dominion of governments.
