As the Hoover talking point sallies forth from Thomas Sowell, the The Moral Infrastructure of America, to Law and Order, the genuine fear is that they will decide to Occupy the Voting Booth.that the Occupy Movement is a threat to
Reminds of times when the Vietnam war led to mass protests, and before that occupying lunch-counters with sit-ins at Woolworth’s and marches and boycotts in the old-South to bring attention to denials of Civil Rights.
Reminds of a time that an old-South governor occupied the door to block integration.
Occupied A Bus
An initiating event of the American Revolution was occupying King George III’s ships in Boston Harbor complaining about the tea. Washington Mall in the 1963. Tiananmen Square.
Carnegie the moral low ground in the 1892 Homestead Strike.
Wall-street with say-do-whatever today.
Law and Order
To Federalists, who reject Amendments, it’s convenient to pretend that:
The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights: The amendment prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.
by say-do-whatever, never happened, occupying the Land of Make Believe.
Cousin dumb-as-a-post in a robe sends the President a demand letter for exercising free speech. The Call to Arms from Thomas Sowell, the Black Redneck, against the Occupy Movement starts with:
The “Occupy” Movement, which the Obama administration and much of the media have embraced, has implications that reach far beyond the passing sensation it has created. … The unwillingness of authorities to put a stop to their organized disruptions of other people’s lives, their trespassing, vandalism and violence is a de facto suspension, if not repeal, of the 14th Amendment’s requirement that the government provide “equal protection of the laws” to all its citizens.
King George III would recognize that while amorphous, the Occupy Movement represents another Great Awakening of people of all types and descriptions realizing that theisn’t concerned for them.
Vandalism isn’t peaceable. The Tea Party Movement that has been wholly absorbed under the old-Southern Strategy Republican Party Big Tent of Hate, of government, to do far more vandalism to the principle of governance in compromise than any since South Carolina seceded on December 20, 1860.
For a mob rule that requires a super-majority in a perversion of routine filibuster. That have to ‘Stick it to the President’ as a metareligious duty, sticking it to the country. Vandalized the credit rating, to in standard Atwater hypocritical say-do-whatever to ‘hurt them more‘ invoking gerrymandered Democracy.
The Black Redneck lawn jockey continues with:
We would have anarchy…. Mob rule means imposing what the mob wants, regardless of what the majority of voters want. It is the antithesis of democracy.
Trust the Tyranny of Majority
Having none of it about the Majority when it comes to the business of congressional governance, typically hypocritically, the old-South Black Redneck invokes ‘what the majority of voters want,’ as bullies who believe in Law and Order only when it’s on their side.
By the Tyranny of Majority, were it not for Brown vs. Board of Education, old-South schools would still be segregated.
Were it not for a violent conflict, that same plantation. Not at all to endorse violence from any quarter, note that infant mortality and the failure of the educational system, sky-rocketing poverty in a slow-rolling violence of Maestrini’s law that leads to morbidity and mortality on Spartan stones makes as dead. War by other means, ends justifying any.would still be hoeing on the
Invoking Morality from the Mountaintop of Hate as Virtue
All of this is eminently moral as the Black Redneck goes on with:
But the crumbling of the moral infrastructure is no less deadly. …. The police are the last line of defense against barbarism, but they are equipped only to handle that minority who are not stopped by the first lines of defense, beginning with the moral principles taught at home and upheld by families, schools, and communities. … But if everyone takes the path of least resistance — if politicians pander to particular constituencies and judges give only wrist slaps to particular groups or mobs who are currently in vogue, and educators indoctrinate their students with “non-judgmental” attitudes — then the moral infrastructure corrodes and crumbles. [My emphasis]
What are these magical ‘non-judgmental‘ attitudes but a condemnation of injustice?
When Walter Cronkite said:
But it is increasingly clear to this reporter that the only rational way out then will be to negotiate, not as victors, but as an honorable people who lived up to their pledge to defend Democracy, and did the best they could.
Other words were in the context of the inarticulate street, Praying with Their Legs.
Now, in the War Between the States within the States, everyone who’s ‘them’ is discounted. Children. Hippies. Slackers. Occupy.
Agitators. Meddlers. Hedonists. Liberals.
Only Loyalist serfs who are too decerebrate by Xenophobic intoxication – judgmental, to realize they’re being hosed too are afforded a modicum of consideration by the beneficence to hand down papal bulls as talking points on morality from the immoral.
Morality Is the Issue
Morality is certainly the issue. For the old-South, morality is dominion. Militarism. Shock and Awe. Cluster bombs. Pepper spray. Hoses. And more. In say-whatever to do-whatever. Freedom. Their ‘honor.’
Yes, we’ve seen other Occupy Movements. For the longest time, since Reconstruction, some were determined to maintain their Tyranny of Majority that the Black Redneck cites as the height of civil nobility.
As the Republican Party gerrymanders and creates every conceivable obstacle to disenfranchise those who cannot pay their Poll Tax in modernity.
As McCarty, they have no shame. None whatso-say-do-whatever.
Tactics and Opportunities
A favored tactic is to accuse people who cite their racist Code-words of being racist. Accuse people of being Communists who disagree that inveterate misanthropic corporatists who are aren’t people in any Human sense, without a shred of moral consideration should be free to say-do-whatever.
Free to prey on any smaller business, any smaller person, on any target of opportunity, with impunity.
The Black Redneck ends with:
The moral infrastructure is one of the intangibles, without which the tangibles don’t work. Like the physical infrastructure, its neglect in the short run invites disaster in the long run.
True enough, and the neglect of the moral infrastructure since the ascendancy of the Ronald Reagan signaled by endorsement of Murder in Neshoba County as a State’s Right was the inception of the War Between the States within the States that has resulted in M.B.A.s on Wall Street being obligated to lie on the ‘at will’ plantation of Greed as Virtue.
A cottage industry of sham insipid with a vocabulary quasi-intellectuals by fealty social promotion to lend a patina of credibility to the most base instincts within mankind as fearful animals, only contesting who will be prey.
An igNoble Call for Sterner Measures
- The Black Redneck cites the invalid-to-them Fourteen Amendment that had to be passed before the South was re-enfranchised after the War Between the States as equal protection to call for sterner measures, in defense of the gerrymandered poll-taxed Tyranny of the Majority led by corporatist loyalists in the .
To Affirm Anarchy
While standing fast for ‘free market’ anarchy that’s to return to the halcyon days of pre-Great Depression, unfettered no-oversight Ayn Rand Greenspan ‘trust us’ and don’t dare verify.
Every day, a new quasi-revelation comes out that ‘oops‘ somebody got snookered, a sucker born every minute, when the ‘small investor’ is routinely turned over to the ‘do not recall big dogs’ for a fleecing before a lamb-shank, with no-Passover.
By an anarchy of endemic pecking order corruption that threatens ‘confidence‘ far beyond ‘oversight.‘
Occupy the Heavy Siege Engines of Democracy
I have no personal knowledge of where the Occupy Movement is going, but in recognition of their avowed interest in Justice Compassion and Mercy, I pray they will really give them something to cry about and Occupy the Voting Booth, something people all over the world value seemingly more so than those who’ve grown up with that silver spoon in their mouths.
Notice that internationally, free elections and elimination of corruption are top priority.
The warped Federalist Papers talking point is another say-whatever Revision of history, the founding fathers, that defeated their desire to have no amendments. The Federalist Party buried as Loyalists. Note:
Ought not a government, vested with such extensive and indefinite authority, to have been restricted by a declaration of rights? It certainly ought. So clear a point is this, that I cannot help suspecting that persons who attempt to persuade people that such reservations were less necessary under this Constitution than under those of the States, are wilfully endeavoring to deceive, and to lead you into an absolute state of vassalage.
as Thomas Jefferson, wrote to Madison advocating a Bill of Rights:
“Half a loaf is better than no bread. If we cannot secure all our rights, let us secure what we can.” George Mason refused to sign the proposed Constitution, in part to protest its lack of a Bill of Rights.
The Wonderful Thing about Democracy
The wonderful thing about Democracy is that with all the warts and foibles of the men-as deities. To really knock their walls down. Without the vandalism, violence of which old-South murderous hearts are so fond., these same created a mechanism for people to throw off their
Echoes to Discredit Egalitarian Justice
The old-Southern-Strategy Republican party plays their Code-words as a broken record with thousands of echoes hoping to drown out and discredit a desire for egalitarian Justice. As a Hume moral failure. And, in conjunction with the First Amendment, there’s no mystery as to what Loyalists are.
Plain for all to see who will.
Gerrymandering and Voter Lockouts Show Their Real Fear
- Gerrymandering and voter lockouts and creating modern Poll Taxes show their real fear.
- Doing everything they can to discourage people who are not automatons enraptured by Federalist Court-approved Hate Speech, who are ‘non-judgmental‘ who will pull the trigger on them in the voting booth.
As the Tea Party has conquered the Republican Party to die of the old-Southern Hate airborne communicable disease, their worst fear is that the Occupy Movement will decide to participate in the political process.
Occupy the Voting Booth: Vote Them Out of Power
The old-South beats the pan for Democracy in America as exemplary model all over the world. Nevertheless, they show with their actions that they know egalitarian Democracy is the most dangerous thing for men who would be deities, that derive power money might from enrolling cousin dumb-as-a-post Black Rednecks and his old-South animalistic ilk with Code-words.
Aided and abetted by political complacency of the intelligent. Thoughtful. Humane.
Certainly, the moral infrastructure of America has suffered enough.
Participate in the political process. Occupy that space.
