“Occupy” Protester: “The Bourgeosie Won’t Go without Violent Means”

“Gandhi today is a tumor,” says this “occupier” at a protest in Los Angeles, “that the ruling class is using constantly to mislead us. French Revolution made fundamental transformation. But it was bloody.”

“The bourgeosie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.”

“Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”

You could say that this is just one lone nut in a non-violent crowd, and to be fair he references another speaker at the protest who had talked of non-violence, but as he’s chanting his call for violent revolution and denouncing non-violent tactics (and even Gandhi) the crowd is cheering him on. And gives him a nice applause at the end.

Which tells me that this talk of violence and revolution wasn’t unwelcome there.

If this had been the tea party, the “party” would be over tomorrow. But it’s the leftist “occupiers,” and so that’s different.

          The Tea party doesn’t worship firearms, they worship God, they own firearms to ensure their ability to pray to afore mentioned God, and since you brought it up.  I am armed, let the violance begin.  Those of us who swore to defend the constitution are ready and willing to go to work.

          The tea party recognizes that there is a 2nd amendment, and that it protects our right to keep and bear arms. Nobody got up at a tea party and called for violence, and if someone had they wouldn’t have been cheered.

            Yeah, Palin said it, and she wasn’t calling for violence. She was calling for political dissent.

            Which is different from a guy calling for actual violent revolution and being cheered for it.

          • WOOF

            She’s so misunderstood.

            That guy would be lucky to get a reaction calling for his free refill at KFC.

            She’s purposefully misunderstood. You know full well she wasn’t calling for violence.

            You’re embarrassed that this guy called for violent revolution and was cheered by your ideological brethren, and now you’re trying to muddy the water.

    Don’t be dissing Ghandi dammit or I will have to come over there and beat some s……..wait can’t do that Ghandi wouldn’t approve. 

    • JDice


      On a tangent to your point – some people never learn, some people learn from their own history, while smart people learn from other people’s history. On trying to learn from Ghandi some of his comments that truly resonate with me follow:

      All compromise is based on give and take, but there can be no give and take on fundamentals. Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender. For it is all give and no take.
      Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.

      Nearly everything you do is of no importance, but it is important that you do it.

      Rights that do not flow from duty well performed are not worth having.

      It is any day better to stand erect with a broken and bandaged head then to crawl on one’s belly, in order to be able to save one’s head.

    tu quoque….. The Occupiers should have protested first then you could have tu quoque Rob.

    If these useful idiots succeed at inciting violent revolution it is going to be a very bloody affair – mostly theirs.  To be sure there would be casualties on both sides as there always are, but the vast majority of these simps have no idea what a beat-down they would be bringing on themselves.

  • mikemc1970

    Let them start the violence. The politicians will dump them and they’ll be crushed mercilessly. These trustifarians don’t have the stomach for any real violence. They will go home with their tail tucked between their legs.

  • mickey_moussaoui

    I’m not worried. These clowns go into seizures as soon as
    they leave the large cities. The sight of too many trees makes them crazy scared

      You should see what the sight of a cocked and locked 1911 does to them.

    Karl Marx argued that revolution was impossible in a society that lived on the family farm. He believed that urbanization and industrialization were both requirements for a Communist revolution. In the 1920s, half of all Americans lived on a farm. Family farms that remained free of debt, enjoyed full-employment during the 1930s. Those that used debt to expand, were destroyed.

    The Federal Reserve Bank is a Marxist and Fascist institution. It creates the debt necessary to enslave a Republic, and the politics that are required to increase our indebtedness. Whether this country spends money on social programs (Socialism), or military expansion  (Fascism), we end up borrowing money from the Federal Reserve. As an added bonus, the privately owned corporation also charges us interest to use its Federal Reserve Notes as our currency!

      There are more than the two options you mention, and like Marx, you believe that increasing prosperity causes problems.  Keep them dumb and down on the farm.
