More evidence the OWS movement is devolving into a cheering section for establishment Democrats.
A poll conducted by CBS and the New York Times reveals that 43 percent of respondents agree with the aims of the movement, while just 27 percent say they disagree.
“That’s a good start, and if the movement can help turn the 2012 election into a populist uprising against the moneyed classes, it could play right into Democratic hands — particularly at a time when the Democrats need more enthusiasm,” reports the Washington Post.
The Post says the OWS is “very amorphous, and it hasn’t shown much of a political bent” but adds that “the movement does favor Democrats to a significant extent.” It bases this on a Post poll showing that 64% of OWS supporters are either Democrats or lean Democrat.
The poll results show that many Americans are at best politically naïve. Many accept without question the political formulation designed by the elite and practiced largely unchallenged by the duopoly in Washington.
Remarkably, the CBS/NYT poll reveals that while a majority of surveyed voters are “evenly split on whether the administration favors the middle class, the rich or the poor, they were all but unanimous about which class the Republicans favor; 69 percent said Republicans in Congress favor the rich, while just 9 percent said the middle class and 2 percent said the poor,” according to the Post.
In other words, most people, if we are to believe these polls, are delusional. In fact, the present administration is almost identical to the one before it and controlled by the elite. Obama’s administration is dominated by Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and populated with a rotating cast of characters from the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission, in other words the crème de la crème of the banksters and their globalist cohorts and coconspirators.
As Daniel Estulin writes, the “CFR has served as a virtual employment agency for the federal government under both Democrats and Republicans” and it will continue to do so despite the presence of the OWS on the “left” and the Tea Party on the “right,” as defined by the likes of the Washington Post, the crown jewel of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, a hugely successful effort by the elite to turn the media into an establishment safe propaganda megaphone.
The Post is nudging the OWS into safe territory and this is only possible because most of its supporters and followers have taken the blue pill and continue to accept the establishment’s narrowly defined right-vs-left political formulations.
This political naivete made the capture and purging of the Tea Party possible. In fact, it was a relatively easy task to sanitize the movement of its Libertarian base and expel the Ron Paul supporters and replace them with nearly mindless and obedient slogan chanters who drank the establishment Republican kool-aid. The same process is now underway within the OWS as operatives work to neutralize any truly radical elements.
If the OWS survives the winter, it will emerge next year as a Democrat cheering section, albeit on what is defined as the far left. It will demand that the government tax the rich as disingenuously called for by billionaire Warren Buffett . It will futilely call for taking special interest money out of a political process owned by special interests, that is to say the ruling elite who have absolutely no intention of sharing power with the unwashed masses or allowing a gaggle of deluded socialists calling for wealth confication to influence the political arrangement in any meaningful or substantive way.
Obama is already preparing to exploit the growing call for change. Later today he will announce a plan to cap student loans at 10% of discretionary income starting in January. He will do this through the elite’s preferred method of governance – the executive order.
Call it a promotional effort for rule by executive fiat. Millions of Americans suffering from the crushing burden of student loan payments while an engineered depression unfolds will now think less unkindly of the unconstitutional behavior of our Caesar who is, in fact, little more than a teleprompter reader and grocery clerk for the global elite.
