Fun times ahead - Fall of 2015

| No Comments

A lot of the progressive playbook originates with just three people. Saul Alinsky was a Chicago 'community organizer' and activist - he is best known for his book Rules for Radicals. It is worth noting that Hillary Clinton's college thesis was titled "THERE IS ONLY THE FIGHT" An Analysis of the Alinsky Model. In New York, two teachers at Columbia University - Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven - came up with the idea of overloading the system to create a crisis to which the government can then step in and take over. This is the Cloward-Piven Strategy (more here) and is what Rahm Emanuel was talking about when he said: "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." Obama is a big fan - read here.

Just ran into this website today:

Flood The System
Fall 2015 – Flood, blockade, occupy and shut down the systems that jeopardize our future!

Imagine in the Fall of 2015 hundreds of self-organized groups of activists, artists and people who care about our future, taking collective action together. Imagine us washing over, occupying, blockading, shutting down and flooding the institutions that exploit us and threaten our survival.


We are in a moment of incredible movement. Hundreds of thousands of people are demanding better wages, an end to police brutality and deportations, a different economic system and real systemic alternatives to a changing global climate.

Governments and corporations will only address the crisis we face with negotiations that propose minor changes and sustain capitalism. They only divert attention away from systems of, white supremacy, colonialism, patriarchy and fossil fuel extraction that created the crisis we face. It is the time to say enough is enough, connect our struggles, and shift power back to our communities.

The site goes on and on with more of this self-entitled twaddle but the idea will be appealing to the low-information voter and Seattle (and Bellingham) will probably see some disturbances.

The website indicates that was initiated by Rising Tide North America and a visit to that site shows that it is about Confronting the Root Causes of Climate Change. This is weapons-grade stupidity. I smell George Soros' hand in this.
