Tonight, we say thank you to Glenn Beck for aiming his sights on US Uncut. Undoubtedly, his disdain and reckless slander will only draw more attention to the US Uncut message of being against corporate tax dodging and public service cuts.
Again, thank you to Glenn Beck, you paranoid schizophrenic psychopath. But why did Beck aim his sights on US Uncut - perhaps its because they have set their sights on Bank of America, one of the worst culprits in the recent financial crisis.
Ever want to yell at 300 billionaires and millionaires who helped wreck the economy?
US Uncut did just that (this video is hilarious & amazing).
At Bank of America's first Investor Conference in three years (3/8/11), organizers from US Uncut crashed the event to protest corporate tax dodgers and public service cuts. The room was packed with 300 hedge fund managers, institutional investors, & asset managers.
The video says it all with US Uncut's simple message:
"When corporations like Bank of America don't pay their fair share of taxes, we have to 'cut' teachers, firefighters, and public servants."
"Do you pay your taxes? So do we. Why don't corporations pay their fair share, just like everyone else?"
"Bank of America is Bad for America. Bank of America pockets Billions in profits and bailouts, but $0 in American taxes - that's immoral and un-American."
Tax avoidance is immoral. If corporations paid their fair share, just like the rest of us, we could solve every state budget crisis without firing one more teacher, we could solve the federal deficit without touching Social Security, and we could put America back to work and drive down unemployment. Wisconsin would not have a "budget crisis" if Gov Walker hadn't handed corporate tax dodgers more tax breaks and used public workers as a scapegoat for the problems he created.
We should start to fight back here and now, by defining the real villain in the room - it's not the government, it's not the union, and it's not your neighbor - it's the corporate tax dodger that abandoned America long ago by storing profits in tropical tax havens and shipping millions of jobs overseas.
Growing from less than 500 to over 13,000 facebook fans in a matter of days and holding protests in 50 cities around the country, US Uncut is poised to be the spark that lights the powderkeg of a real populist movement in America.
Here's their "motto of the movement" too:
The revolution will be tweeted, liked, & shared. We the People Win. #epic
Sounds good to me! How about you? Let's do this people!
