Why They've Got Us All Wrong

Let me ask you, what does a graffiti writer look like? How do they dress? What music are they into? I reckon these questions are unanswerable. Graffiti is a global phenomenon, which is constantly evolving, silently recruiting new members into...

Today, the protest marched from () to

Countless Americans are fed up with the status-quo of our government. Our economy is in shambles. Almost 10%
of American citizens are unemployed. We are engaged in wars that we can not justify, much less afford.

image 48329
The richest 1% of America holds the vast majority of our nation's wealth and the rest of us 99% are growing increasingly
aware that we have been taken advantage of. We are out of work. We can not afford health care. Even after paying
off our college loans for a university education, we can not find stable jobs.

image 48330
The middle-class has been taken advantage of by the greed of corporations, banks and the rich.

image 48331
Our government has intentionally deregulated our financial sector, which has allowed banks and
major corporations to take advantage of our status as a well-off world-superpower.

image 48332
Greed has taken over. The working class suffers more and more while the rich minority get richer and richer.

image 48333
The banks have been bailed out while the rest of America has been sold out. Bush, Obama... what's the difference?
Different face, same problems.

image 48334
We are increasingly brutalized by a totalitarian, fascist police-state.

image 48335
We are not yet getting due coverage in the mainstream media.

image 48336
We are the 99%. And so are you. Join us. Fight back. Speak out in any way you can. It is time for our voices to be heard.

^^^ Dear "V",

That's what the 1% want you to think/say. You're playing right into their trap. Educate yourself. Google "Occupy Wall Street" or read any of the above links.

You've been robbed. You're part of the 99%. JOIN US.

We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget.

...A building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols are given power by people. A symbol, in and of itself is powerless, but with enough people behind it, blowing up a building can change the world.

The whores of K Street in DC are a bigger problem in the country of the lobbyists, by the lobbyists and for the lobbyists.

Forget Steve Jobs, let's talk Lobbyists....

Up to the 1980s/1990s, the stock/commodities market was regulated by post-depression Roosevelt-era regulations put into place to prevent collapse and corruption.

Fast-forward to 2008-2011, and you find that the lobbyists have spent enough money to convince the powers-that-be to de-regulate the markets so that the fat-cats can PROFIT$$$.

And here we are, stuck in a huge depression. Go figure!

Lobbyists out! No more bailout for the rich!

Open your eyes, America, and speak up!

Does anyone really believe that if we were to get rid of Capitalism, Capitalists wouldn't just take government jobs?

Do any of you protesters really believe you'll rate a with an off switch? The thought they'd have positions within Germany's Socialist government of the 1930s.

You're being played. They always win - even when they lose.

For all those who complain that 1% of the population has a hold on too much of the nation's wealth, just imagine how much better it will be when ALL of the nation's wealth is owned and controlled by the 546 members of Congress, the Senate, the White House and the Supreme Court.

Looks like Occupy Wall Street's got that all-too-critical White Power support...

Many racialists are unsure about, and even against, these Occupy Wall Street protests all around the country.  It has been pointed out to me that many protesters are non-white and/or “communists.” Well my answer to that is: “WHO CARES?!”  They are against the same evil, corrupted, degenerate capitalist elitists that WE are against!  Instead of screaming, “6 million more!” The pro-white movementites should be JOINING this Occupy movement and supporting it!

Seriously people, just WHO is our enemy?  The unemployed left-wing 25-year-old holding up a sign, OR the judeo-capitalist banksters who swindled the American taxpayers out of A TRILLION dollars in the “bailout” scam AND continue to oppress the White Working Class?!?  Even Adolf Hitler’s NSDAP had to vote with open communists on some issues to achieve their goals.  WE need to utilize and support every movement of dissent against this evil American empire, regardless of which end of the political spectrum it originates from.

The foremost authority on National Socialism in America has this to say about “Occupy”:

What is really MISSING – is the “MOVEMENT” from these popular protests – its time to pull WN heads out of their collective ass’s, and JOIN IN the attack on Judeo-Capitalism.  What do you suggest? That WN Working Class White people DEFEND the Judeo-Capitalists?  IF the “movement” wasn’t so PATHETIC it would be OUT THERE – LEADING these protests!  The fact that its these “lefties” as you call them, who are picking up the ball and running with it – only shows how much more in tune THEY are with the fed up masses of White Workers, than the fossilized, reactionary “right-wing”.  WHO holds the WEALTH and POWER in this country – the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO is therefore the #1 ENEMY who makes all this filth happen – the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO therefore do WN need to FIGHT?  My heart is right there with these people, perhaps someday the “movement” will SHOW the same COURAGE and DEDICATION that these people OUT THERE FIGHTING are SHOWING!
Sincerely,  ROCKY SUHAYDA  Hail Victory!  88!

UPDATE: The American Nazi Party released an ‘Official Statement’ about the Occupy Wall Street Movement:

ANP Report for October 16, 2011
Racial Comrades: I am going to address the issue of this "Occupy Wall Street" fervor that has been sweeping the land like a breath of cleansing air!


This issue is TAYLOR MADE for National Socialists, as well as WN who are serious about DOING SOMETHING - MORE - than shouting "racial slurs" and acting like "poster boys of hate" loons.

After all - JUST WHO - are the WALL STREET BANKERS? The vast majority are JEWS - and the others are SPIRITUAL JEW materialists, who would sell their own mother's gold teeth for a PROFIT. And MORE and MORE people are AWARE of this truth, are not only NOT afraid to TALK ABOUT IT - they're shouting it on WALL STREET!

I urgently URGE all of you to TAKE PART and JOIN IN when these protests hit your neck of the woods. Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the "JEW BANKER" influence - DON'T wear anything marking you as an "evil racist" - and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD! Put as a "contact point" on your literature, our address - it won't immediately "scare off" some of these scaredy-cats for even looking at our FACTS - for FACTS they ARE!

If you are unable to produce your own leaflets - check out the "support" section of our website - there are a LOT of good flyers there to utilize.

This issue reminds me a LOT of the "GASOLINE SHORTAGE" of the 1970's - where National Socialists found a HUGE receptive audience, for our viewpoints - per the JEWISH CONTROL of OUR GOVERNMENT and its insane support for Zionist Israel, and the Arab Oil Boycott that hit OUR people so hard.

As I have so often in the past spoke on - the White Working Class - is going PAST, the BOILING POINT, and is quickly reaching ULTIMATE EXPLOSION! THEY want ANSWERS! THEY want RESULTS! All of which this evil corrupt, decadent JUDEO-CAPITALIST SYSTEM is incapable of giving them. WHY? Because its BOUGHT and SOLD to the CORPORATE ELITISTS who are fast turning America into a "South American" style - THIRD WORLD WAGE-SLAVE STATE - ( complete with MILLIONS of BROWN illegal aliens willing to ACCEPT YOUR JOB for LOW WAGES and NO BENEFITS ) where, currently 3% of the population CONTROL 85% of the nation’s WEALTH! And the "GREAT DIVIDE" is GROWING each and every year that passes.

WE - the WHITE WORKING CLASS - have been LIED TO and totally DECIEVED - just the other day, the system APPROVED THREE MORE so-called "Free-Trade" deals. ALL of which mean that MORE JOBS are going to be SENT OVERSEAS - YOUR JOBS! Don't you CARE? Enough to DO SOMETHING?



Marching over a cliff.
by Steve Davenport

The people of the US have let themselves be led by greedy idiots to the edge of a cliff. If something isn't done soon, the white middle class will simply cease to exist. We're practically there already. It’s not just us its the world too. Europe is in meltdown. Thanks to our supposed all-knowing elite, Europe was conned into forming itself into a united country so to speak. The results of this are now apparent. Europe's nations are trapped like cattle in a corral. They must all march in lock step. There is no room for maneuver. Now the strong economies MUST bail out the weak ones debt, or be left holding the bag. Its kind of like post world one reparations returns. With the same unfairness, and confusion. Europe followed the American example of living beyond your means, and letting the mega capitalists do as they please. The death of the Euro is imminent. No one has the money for unlimited bailouts. How sad it is that the Europeans have no backbone any more. Seeing how the US is just constantly bailing out its rich capitalists, you'd think they'd avoid our mess. Their leaders are just ZOG slaves, to do as they are told.

South Asia has become such a mess for the US, its really amazing. Our ruling elite wages war in an area of the world that is totally alien in customs to us. 10 years in Afghanistan isn't enough, it now is painfully obvious that Pakistan isn't our friend, and the US will be soon at war against Pakistan. There is too much friction, and distrust between the 2 nations. The US wants to destroy the Taliban, Haqqani, and AL-Queda groups. They want Pakistan to do it for us. Pakistan wants no part of our wars. So the US will invade and do it itself, over Pakistani dead bodies. More war in South Asia. This is for the good of the country? War between the US and Pakistan is inevitable the longer we stay in that region. We have too great differences. Our elite is ruthless, and determined to get its way.

Our ruling elite have been waging class warfare for quite a while now. Up to now, they've kept it low key, so as not to rile the ignorant masses. Now that Communism is gone, they feel its OK to be brazen about it. The rich are dumping the financial mess on everyone else. They intend to never pay taxes. Certainly not their fair share. Did anyone see any millionaires, or billionaires step up to the plate for the big bank bailout, and offer their mucho bucks to help the nation? No, it was the US govt, the American taxpayer, who got stuck with the check. This is truly outrageous. The American middle class is barely surviving, thanks to the big money types, sending our jobs overseas to non white cheap labor (to put it kindly) nations. What nerve. What utter gaul. Then to add insult to injury, they tell us that we need to do away with social programs, as there is no money to pay for them, and pay the national debt, which is now much too high. How can we pay for anything, without jobs? Outsourcing to overseas, while illegal immigrants come in to take jobs. Giving non whites jobs, because of racial quotas, so that whites get shut out of the public sector jobs in their own country. Its now not anymore a white country, then it is a white govt. Having a black president makes it all too clear who's running the show. We might as well have national ZOG day. It makes as much sense as MLK birthday being a national holiday.

The mega predator capitalist govt/system we have now, is bound and determined to make sure that the white middle class is enfeebled, if not outright eliminated totally. Every opportunity for a decent wage, is being destroyed. Our kids are being left with a world of nothingness to look forward to. Decent wages a thing of the past. It is truly amazing how our rulers don't get it that a consumer nation needs consumers. People need jobs to make money to consume. They talk about creating jobs, but all they need do is NOT give them away. Giving rich people tax breaks, is senseless. Rich people are rich, they need not spend money. They can happily deposit it in banks, and collect interest. Why would they bother creating jobs? How does that really benefit them? We've lived in la la land for too long. We can expect (and should have expected) NOTHING from the rich elite. They have no love for us, nor respect. As far as they're concerned they don't need us, and there is no convincing them otherwise.
OK, if they don't need us, let's not need them. We need to embrace a new system. One based on race and the folk community, rather then wealth and power. A govt system that needs its people as much as they need it.

National Socialism is based on entirely different premises as Judeo-Capitalism. Its needs and requirements are people based, not money based. We need a system that doesn't throw its people callously on the garbage dump, or let them be mown down on the battlefield fighting useless wars. If you're tired of the corruption and misspent money, then you need to support the ANP. Think of every dollar donated, as another vote in protest of the system corruption. Think of every piece of lit given out, as yet another protest against a system of lies, betrayal, and just out and out villainy. Think of every person who becomes a supporter as an ally to guarantee our kids future, and a guardian against the destruction of the white middle class. All this aiming toward a unified racial front to stop the ZOG elite from robbing us blind.

Comrades, National Socialism is NOT some "right-wing, reactionary" ideology that sucks-up to the WEALTHY and the INFLUENTAL no matter "HOW" greedy and evil they are, like lick-spittle SLAVES! NO!

National Socialists are REVOLUTIONARIES seeking a BETTER, HEALTHIER, more COMPASSIONATE WORLD for their children's needs. By "sitting back" and ALLOWING this growing EVIL to inflict our land - America's White Workers have basically ALLOWED over these past years - this SEWER that currently SURROUNDS US ALL - to HAPPEN and to FLOURISH. This must STOP!

That TRILLION-DOLLAR BAILOUT to the WALL STREET BANKERS was the LAST STRAW for ANYONE to have to bear! It was SUPPOSED to "FIX THINGS" - just WHAT did it FIX? It’s been BUSINESS as USUAL for the BANKSTERS - while America's White Workers have FELT the RAMMING and JAMMING, until we have had ENOUGH.

Like I wrote at the time - IF that TRILLION had been GIVEN to the PEOPLE - instead of the BANKSTERS, this economy would be FLUSH with cash! In turn, people would have BOUGHT things, and NEW JOBS would have been CREATED - IF, of course this SYSTEM would have INVESTED in AMERICA, instead of INVESTING in their "GLOBAL ECONOMY" of INTERNATIONAL BANKSTERS.

Comrades the "BLINDERS" are finally COMING OFF many Americans! They are SEEING ala the movie "They Live!" - the CRUEL, EVIL ENEMY that CONTROLS America. OUR America! And their ANGER is STIRRING. It’s TIME to FAN those FLAMES! THIS is only the beginning.....

For White Worker Power! Hail Victory! 88!

But rest assured dear comrades. The Communists have thrown their support in as well...

This is an exciting time! Thousands of mainly young people have been occupying Wall Street for three weeks already, and the “Occupy Movement” has spread to more than 200 other cities. On Oct. 6 the actions spread to our nation’s capital.

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) will hold a national teleconference to discuss it:

Arturo Cambron
The Communist Party and the Occupy L.A. Movement

Southern California Party leader Arturo Cambron will share how the CPUSA and Young Communist League (YCL) are working in “Occupy Los Angeles.”
This movement, also known as the “99% movement,” is being hailed across the country. Movements and organizations are reaching out in solidarity. The AFL-CIO is opening union halls and offering other material assistance. Ordinary people are donating food, money and materials.
In many areas, the “Occupy Movement” is linking up with the National American Wants to Work Week of Actions, Oct. 10-16.
No doubt the “Arab Spring” demonstrations and those that exploded in Wisconsin, Ohio and elsewhere have inspired it. But underlying it all is the economic crisis, the massive unemployment and growing realization that nothing is getting better, and in fact we may be slipping into a “double dip” crisis. The crushing student debt and the feeling of being locked out of society with no future compound this.
The movement is the newest wrinkle in the all-people’s upsurge against the banks and corporations and reflects a new level of class-consciousness.
While there is a wide range of political and ideological trends, there is a consensus against corporate greed, getting money out of politics, taxing the rich and putting people before profits.
A big challenge for the CPUSA and left, progressive movements is to link these demonstrations with the labor led all-people’s coalition and help deepen understanding that the path to progress must be through electoral and political action including defeating Republican Tea Party reaction in 2012.
Of primary importance is linking it with the burgeoning fight for jobs and especially passage of the American Jobs Act.
We can also play a role in offering more advanced programmatic ideas like nationalizing the banks and socialism.
To have a positive impact, the CPUSA and YCL must be a part of the “Occupy” movement, participating at every level and building greater local support for the actions among labor and progressive forces.

See you all on the call October 11!

Paging Alanis Morrissette....

IRONY ALERT: OWS denying homeless people food

The kitchen staff at Occupy Wall Street has decided to revolt against the freeloading “professional homeless” and other who are trying to just get a free meal off their hard work. Seriously – it’s pure irony in action and Glenn took the time on radio to point out the massive hypocrisy.

According to news reports, the cooks down on Wall Street feel overworked and underappreciated. There are homeless people and others who are not necessarily part of the protests – although they certainly are part of the 99% – going to Zuccotti Park for a free meal. In response, they chefs are refusing to cook the gourmet food they usually serve and will only serve brown rice and other ‘spartan grub’ this weekend. For instance, they are only serving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches today.

“There are people starving in this country and you’re not willing to share you’re food?” Glenn asked.

“Heartless,” he added.

Glenn said at most gatherings the Tea Party organized don’t get gourmet food, and they would be lucky have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

“They have so much in common with those in Egypt,” Glenn jokingly added.

“I mean, these hangers on aren’t doing anything. Why should they have to support them? Why?” Pat asked.

“They are protesting for the people who are at the middle and bottom of the ladder, they say. But their protest to shake the deadbeats is to feed them peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. You’ve got to be kidding me.”

“What a great country this is when you’re trying to shake deadbeats by serving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches,” Pat said.

“The irony. You couldn’t write this,” Glenn added.

Max Reiner: 6th Nov 2011 - 13:20 GMT

Whining and kvetching like spoiled brats will NOT change anything. I will just get you into trouble. Without a plan to fix things and leadership, it is like urinating in your pants in the wintertime. It feels good. But it still stinks.

Max Reiner: 21st Jun 2012 - 23:44 GMT

Hey, I wrote that some time ago. And I still believe what I say. It also applies to the wimpy "Death of a Salesman." He should have tried the other side of the street. Make ten cold sales calls, you'll either sell one or get a hot lead that will lead to a sale. It's a universal truth.

Jack Diamond: 9th Oct 2012 - 06:19 GMT

What? No more comments? Whatever happened to the protesters with so much time on their hands? They must have found jobs. Like Jesus said, "Knock and the door shall open." That applies to people who seek employment. There are a great many jobs out there. Spoiled brat protesters don't apply for them though.

Occupy NY: 27th Apr 2013 - 22:03 GMT

Everyone works hard not to get cheated out of their fair share. In the past 30 years, due to gains in technology, productivity rose but salaries when adjusted for inflation decreased for the middle class. The extra wealth accumulated at the top 1%. They then use that wealth to influence politicians and get bailouts and all sorts of other favors. When wealth that is concentrated in the hands of a few is one of the main influences in politics then society is no longer a democracy it is a plutocracy. That is what the protest is about. We all work hard and we all want to be treated fairly and we want the rule of law to be restored such that it applies to everyone in society and that the wealthy are not exempt from their actions. Corporations are needed; unethical behavior and corruption aren't needed.
