    Reminds me of FDR's definition of fascism.  And it's not hyperbole anymore.  That's mind blowing.  

    I did see some evidence of the coordination in person too.  When KBO and I were at Zuccotti in September, the guys in black suits with slick hair were running the show -- the Brookfield security honchos.  At one point I saw one of them signal to the NYPD to arrest someone.  

    And last year, there were the news stories about how JP Morgan had given millions to NYPD to put toward their communications center, IIRC.

      the "New FDR". The Ministry of Truth has done its job well. The Proles are indeed programmed.

        Everything I've ever seen from the O Team indicates that they despise FDR.  They are Reaganite and Clintonite on domestic issues and Bushite/Cheneyite on foreign policy.

        Even here at dkos you will find a lot of people who seem to loathe FDR.  What's up with that?  

        Growing up, every Democrat I knew was an FDR Democrat, then a Kennedy Democrat in other ways.  Yeah, FDR wasn't perfect but bloody hell, compare him to today's Democrats!  He'd be considered far far left (which is now a dirty word at dkos too, I've noticed).  FDR policies are still wildly popular with a big majority Americans, and not just Democrats.

        Who hated FDR?  The criminal bankers.  That's who hated him. So the people here who hate him... who are they and who do they represent?  And what the heck are they doing here?  I see people asking every day what the Obama critics are doing here on this site and telling them to get off the site, saying we should be banned, etc.  But if we are going to talk about who should and shouldn't be here (I hate that) then what the heck are anti-FDR, veiled pro-banker kossacks doing here?
