First off, good news is, we are winning, big time.
I apologize for the lack of transcript, if I am able to find one or if someone can put the link in the comments I will try to update ASAP.
In the video, Maddow clearly explains how #ows protests have spread like wildfire, igniting the working class and others who are opposed to corporate crime. We are changing the national narrative. We are pushing back, and the corrupt corporate liars hate it.
Now, just a bit of commentary . . .
The corrupt toadies of the super rich are in full freak out mode, and now they are beginning to use Stochastic Terrorism language to paint peaceful protestors as a violent mob trying to kill you and destroy America, because having an honest conversation is something these lackeys for Wall Street have no interest in engaging in. For a larger definition of stochastic terrorism, this definition does the trick.
The stochastic terrorist is the person who uses mass media to broadcast memes that incite unstable people to commit violent acts.
One or more unstable people responds to the incitement by becoming a lone wolf and committing a violent act. While their action may have been statistically predictable (e.g. "given the provocation, someone will probably do such-and-such"), the specific person and the specific act are not predictable (yet).
The stochastic terrorist then has plausible deniability: "Oh, it was just a lone nut, nobody could have predicted he would do that, and I'm not responsible for what people in my audience do."
The lone wolf who was the "missile" gets captured and sentenced to life in prison, while the stochastic terrorist keeps his prime time slot and goes on to incite more lone wolves.
Further, the stochastic terrorist may be acting either negligently or deliberately, or may be in complete denial of their impact, just like a drunk driver who runs over a pedestrian without even realizing it.
Finally, there is no conspiracy here: merely the twisted acts of individuals who are promoting extremism, who get access to national media in which to do it, and the rest follows naturally just as an increase in violent storms follows from an increase in average global temperature.
Instead of having an honest conversation these shills would rather throw a hysterical hissy-fit. It's like arguing with a 4th grader. Listening to Republicans who hate Government, Muslims, Gays, Women, Latin Americans, African Americans and every other minority under the sun, listening to these wormtougues weeping about how anti WALL STREET protestors are trying to divide us is laughable. We should laugh at them for it. They only hate discrimination if you discriminate against the rich or corporations, every other kind of hatred is to be promoted.
Cantor can take his concern and go shove it. Preying on the emotions of fear, envy and anger is only for Republicans who defend Wall Street.
Instead of debating reality or the obvious crime on Wall Street that we are protesting, the corrupt political money apparatus would rather demonize us and fear monger against us by saying we are a dangerous mob who is coming to kill you.
Now, I'm not saying that The Fox/Republican Establishment is trying to incite an act of violence against peaceful protestors, but that WILL happen just based on odds the longer these liars scream fire in the movie theater. If Rightwing pundits and Top GOP POTUS candidates and unhinged members of congress continue to use the same eliminationist rhetoric they are using now against #OccupyWallStreet. We have seen it before, they incite the unhinged to act by using unhinged rhetoric to smear those whom they oppose with fear and hatred of some unknown evil. This is pretty much the only play in the Fox/GOP playbook because they can't beat #OccupyWallStreet on the facts and they are desperate to run defense on behalf of their corrupt Wall Street gravy train.
Yesterday I met John Stossel. It was taped by Fox News. I think someone got the footage, or part of it, but I have no idea how to find it. You will never see the footage air, but I think you can guess how it went for Stossel. He asked me what I thought of the minimum wage. I threw it back in his face and asked him if that was a serious question. I don't remember how the exchange went, but I gave Stossel a lesson he won't soon forget, and the crowd cheered me after I was through with Mr. Moustache.
In all our encounters with the lying media controlled by corporate interests we must be peaceful while exposing the lies for what they are, but the overall cacophony of bullshit and smears gets echoed 1000X by the idiots on the fringe, the Glenn Beck's and Micheal Savage's of the world, and they have a big, stupid audience. They call us Hitler, we only call them stupid, if that, but 99% of Conservatives and Republicans are the 99% too. They are simply being taken advantage of by the special interests who would gladly fleece them, the more willingly the better, so I can't really blame people who are honest and have just been lied to, I can't really blame them, I wish I could just talk to them without them screeching about socialism in my face.
So today I am buying a video camera so I do not miss out on another moment like this.
I have to run, I'm busy, as I'm sure you understand. When I get a chance I will write something more detailed, I just wanted to point out that the super rich are scared that the peasants are uniting, and that makes me think we are doing the right thing.
I am going to bash Fox News because they are not just mere corrupt and irresponsible political hacks masquerading as journalists, but because they are total liars. Poor people, working people, professional people being squeezed by the super rich are not the cause of these disasters, and the people who badmouth #OccupyWallStreet protests know this, because they are in the pocket of the rich, they are the rich themselves.
This is Jesse LaGreca, reporting on Day 24? (I'm losing track) from the frontlines of the class warzone, wishing you good health and prosperity to you and yours, and reminding you that they only call it class war when the working class fights back.
