SODOM & GOMORRAH: The #OccupyWallStreet protesters have failed to come up with a unified message or purpose. Now they’re taking their disunity to the rest of the country with the #OccupyTogether movement.
Glenn Beck will tell you they’re just a bunch of Marxists. As we’ve pointed out and as this author has witnessed around the web, the American swarm is composed of more than just Marxists. Ron Paul supporters, tea partiers, populists, the Anonymous hacker group, and Marxists have all shown up at the same place to protest. What they’re protesting isn’t clear – some rail against the bankers, others against the government, others against the state of Georgia for killing Troy Davis, and more still treat the whole event as a party instead of a revolution.
We on the Right must take comfort in the complete ineptitude and stupidity of the movement. As the protesters hold their days of rage, we remain safe so long as they never figure out what to rage about. That’s not to say that we support bankers, the government, or Georgia, we just disagree with the tactics – especially the tactic of aligning with Marxists for a “common cause.” Their cause is not our cause. Moldbug was correct to suggest that we can’t out-devil the devil, so we should stick to methods that work for the Right.
The Wall Street protesters, either overcome with their energy or frustrated at their failure, have decided to occupy quite a few other places as well. Major cities will be occupied as part of the #OccupyTogether movement. To get a full list of protest locations, click here.
This author will, naturally, be abstaining from protesting. The mob, no matter how well-intentioned, is far too easily swayed by the voice of the few who shout “Crucify Him!”
