The Occupy Movement, 9/11 truthers and the Nazi Party

I love the Occupy Wall Street movement and its associated occupations around the world.  It give me hope for a world that I was starting to give up on.

Recently I attended Occupy Vancouver and an arrest George Busy rally. At both of these were people holding signs that read:

  • Google "Building 7"
  • 9/11 Truth ENDS 9/11 Wars
The people holding these signs are 9/11 conspiracy theorists.  The believe 9/11 was an inside job and that Building 7 was bought down by somebody for some reason.

Who were these somebodies and what were the reasons?  I don't know. The 9/11 "truthers" most often say it was either the government of some nasty corporation trying to hide something.

I could rabbit on about how wrong these truthers are, but that would be dull and uninteresting.

There are many people getting on board the Occupy movement that I disagree with.  Heck, even the America Nazi Party are on board now!

It is almost like they are sullying the movement.  You can almost here people mocking: "Ha!  The Nazis support the occupy hippies!  What a flawed movement, it is bound to fail."

I would quite frankly prefer it if these and others would just shut up and move on.

But I am only one voice.  Others get their voice too, even if they are wrong.

But please, let us not confuse "People with idiotic views support the movement" with "The movement is idiotic".

  1. I don't blame you one bit for wanting to distance yourself from the groups you have mentioned.

    Excellent point about who is involved though the "why" is the most interesting part.

    Those groups and others see an opportunity to use what some of them would call "useful idiots" to cause chaos with the goal of destroying the western way of life (something many countries that don't have that actually want) and put in their own marxist/communist system.
    Any movement that requires paid protesters to get it started is on shakey ground for long term support.

    You'll also note that the communists and the nazis in the same movement doesn't make logical sense as they historically hate each other (though they are very similar in their goal of control). What is keeping them together in this instance is their goal in common.
    What happens once that goal is reached is that one will take the other out.

    Remember that Google board member in Egypt that was the face of that movement for a while? Well you won't hear much from him these days as once their "peaceful" revolution was complete the brotherhood shut him down. He was lucky to get out of there alive.
