Are the Occupy Protests really the inscrutable uprising the mainstream media claims? Or, are they instead the work of mad tycoon George Soros and his rent-a-puppet Barack? We can hardly be blamed to see a connect when we detect a connecting, central motif—Marxism. The Occupy Protests are presented as the organic polar opposite of the Tea Party protests, arising of their own impetus as logically as weeds erupting in an empty field. But the central Marxist anti-capitalist message of Occupy argue against this.

.

Further, when listening to the very weird and cult-like call-and-answer which these groups use, one can only sense the underlying group-think structure driving these idealistic yet confused souls into action. The strange fixation on Marxism of George Soros and Obama, attaching them to Occupy’s anti-capitalist anarchism are the topics of this essay.

I. Outline of Marxism

A. Overview

A brief description of Marxism is offered here to help understand the ideas and actions of Soros, Obama and the Occupy movement. From another article by this author, a thumbnail of the belief:

Marxists insist life merely concerns proper distribution of wealth. Only two classes matter: rich and poor. The poor are pure, but the rich devilish, since they effectively steal wealth through Capitalism. The government must redistribute money to the poor, since God doesn’t exist to protect mankind. Workers will eventually rise up to overthrow oppressive bosses.

After capitalism collapses, comes then socialism, but only temporarily. Finally communism is established, and all private property abolished. Peace on earth will reign as envy and war disappear when all people have the same status in society. Marx’s Communist Manifesto states, “The theory of the Communists may be summed up in a single sentence: Abolition of private property.”

B. Presuming Economic Imbalance is a Criminal Act

As an atheistic system, Marxism focuses upon material gods as the chief end of life. Given the notion that all amassing of fortunes presume an act of theft against the poor, Marx taught that all justice resided in addressing this theft. Marx mentions this in Das Kapital:

The accumulation of wealth at one pole of society involves a simultaneous accumulation of poverty, labor, torment, slavery, ignorance, brutalization, and moral degradation, at the opposite pole—where dwells the class that produces its own product in the form of capital.

C. Dedication to Revolution

The entire premise of Marxism is revolution is needed so necessary changes can be midwifed into society. In fact, a mystical premise of Marxism is revolution is fated to sweep away capitalism, and therefore cannot be resisted, according to P. H. Vigor, in A Guide To Marxism. Revolution is taught by Marxists as the initial, needed cure to a vast array of societal ills. It’s described by Marx as the “abolition of antagonisms” between rich and poor. Since there is no locus of traditional morality in Marxism, any precursor to revolution is acceptable, no matter how apparently objectionable.

The prerequisite to communist revolution is advanced capitalism, a state which has never actually given birth to such a result. One of the truly fascinating aspects from the period of 20th century when Marxist revolutions were occurring across the globe was how these rebellions were often not uprisings of natives. Writes Robert Tucker in The Marxian Revolutionary Idea,

The communist regimes of Mongolia, North Korea, Bulgaria, Rumania, Hungary, Poland, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia did not come to power in basically indigenous revolutions. These communist revolutions were imposed from outside.

II. Protest Wall Street: Marxists as Fake Tea Partiers?

Protest Wall Street began as an idea put forward by adbusters.org, an anti-capitalist organization which was funded indirectly by George Soros. He hotly disputes the claim of funding, but admits he “understands the protestors.” Reuters reports on this connection:

Soros has donated at least $3.5 million to an organization called the Tides Center in recent years, earmarking the funds for specific purposes. Tides has given grants to Adbusters, an anti-capitalist group in Canada whose inventive marketing campaign sparked the first demonstrations last month.

According to the IRS, Soros’ Open Society gave grants of $3.5 million to Tides, a San Francisco-based group that acts like a clearing house for other donors, directing their contributions to liberal non-profit groups. Tides gave Adbusters grants of $185,000 from 2001-2010, including nearly $26,000 between 2007-2009.

The Vancouver-based Adbusters publishes a magazine with a circulation of 120,000…It says it wants to “change the way corporations wield power” and its goal is “to topple existing power structures.”

Adbusters is an anti-capitalist, anti-consumerist, pro-environmental movement. In other words, they are garden-variety Marxists. But what are the beliefs of the Occupy Wall Street protestors? This question is not difficult to answer. Their general conviction is capitalism has run amok, and they are generally Marxist. We know this because they are critics of capitalism and Wall Street. Further, their demand for wealth redistribution is a sure giveaway that their motivations are socialistic.

A typical demand of the mostly student protestors is for government crack down on corporations and the rich, and force them to redistribute wealth, for things like paying off student loans of the protestors.

In contrast (or not—depending upon the reader’s views), according to Michelle Malkin, the first Tea Party protest occurred in Seattle against Congress’ bank bailout, organized by Keli Carender, from her Liberty Belle blog. About 100 people showed up.

III. Obama & Democrat Support of Occupy Protests—An Anti-Tea Party

An absurd irony of Barack’s support of the Occupy Protesters is that he, more than any other mortal, is responsible for their currently impoverished state. And when such leftist leading lights as Nancy “Toxic Melon” Pelosi, Harry Reid, Michael Moore, and George Soros add their approval, one realizes that this “spontaneous” movement is anything but self-generating.

Democrats exult at their own “Tea Party,” in all its grubby grandeur. The DNC touts the inherent democratic element of the movement. Natural born rebel Barack undoubtedly feels a bred-in-the-bone kinship with the anti-capitalist malcontents.

That malignant shrew Pelosi would pour scorn upon the Tea Party as anti-democratic “astroturf,” then applaud repeatedly the Occupy protestors, revealing this group is truly leftist and undoubtedly as natural as bomb shelter Twinkies.

IV. Immoral World of Wannabe Global-Savior George Soros

The rogue insider-trader of Paris—billionaire Marxist financier George Soros—made a fortune by gambling against weakened currencies of troubled countries. In this sense, soporific Soros, more than any other public money man, harvested billions by leaching off capitalism.

Interestingly enough, Soros admits to having a messiah complex which he is now wealthy enough to pursue with rank abandon. Joy Tiz writes in Soros: It’s Not Easy Being God

A passage in his book The Alchemy of Finance, published in 1987, distinguishes Soros from all other financiers, ever. ‘I have always harboured an exaggerated view of my self-importance,’ he wrote. ‘To put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes, or, even better, like Einstein. My sense of reality was strong enough to make me realise that these expectations were excessive, and I kept them hidden as a guilty secret. This was a source of considerable unhappiness through much of my adult life. As I made my way in the world, reality came close enough to my fantasy to allow me to admit my secret, at least to myself. Needless to say, I feel much happier as a result.’

A. Youthful Jewish Soros as Nazi-Helper

Soros’ taste for money and hypocrisy developed young. George’s entrepreneurial spirit and do-anything-for-money moxie materialized as a young Hungarian Jew. During WWII, teenage Soros pretended to be Protestant to escape Nazis while helping confiscate the goods from Jews deported to concentration camps like Dachau and Auschwitz. In fact, amoral Soros admitted the following on the TV program 60 Minutes about his youthful exploits:

KROFT: You’re a Hungarian Jew…
SOROS: Mm-hmm.
KROFT: ...who escaped the Holocaust…
SOROS: Mm-hmm.
KROFT:...by—by posing as a Christian.
SOROS: Right.
KROFT: And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.
SOROS: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.
KROFT: In what way?
SOROS: That one should think ahead. One should understand and—and anticipate events and when—when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a—a very personal experience of evil.
KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.
SOROS: Yes. Yes.
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.
SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.
KROFT: I mean, that’s—that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
SOROS: Not—not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t—you don’t see the connection. But it was—it created no—no problem at all.
KROFT: No feeling of guilt?
SOROS: No.

B. Soros’ Bona Fide Marxism

In an eye-opening essay penned by Soros in the Atlantic Monthly, he essentially admitted to being a Marxist when he applied George Hegel’s description of history in an article titled The Capitalist Threat. He began the piece by stating,

In The Philosophy of History, Hegel discerned a disturbing historical pattern—the crack and fall of civilizations owing to a morbid intensification of their own first principles. Although I have made a fortune in the financial markets, I now fear that the untrammeled intensification of laissez-faire capitalism and the spread of market values into all areas of life is endangering our open and democratic society. The main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat.

Quoting Hegel is a typical leftist method of bringing Marx into the discussion without raising too many eyebrows. This is because virtually everything Marx wrote was borrowed from Hegel, as one author admits,

Marx is often being seen as the successor of Hegel in practical life. His views are often called “dialectical materialism”, because he transforms Hegel’s dialectic into his materialist views on economics.

Further, Soro’s conclusion of that first paragraph, where it claims that free-market, aka laissez-faire capitalism, is the biggest threat to a free society is a quintessential Marxist claim. In other words, the biggest threat to an “open society” is economic freedom.

C. George’s Marxism in Action

George Soros has described how he helped undermine the communist states in Eastern Europe, which he claimed was tremendous fun. Having had some success, Soros went on to create his Open Society Institute which ironically tries to limit freedoms around the world in the name of “open society.” The list of various groups that OSI funds is astounding, all of which are meant to tear down the legitimacy of various institutions in western countries—especially America. (a listing of these is attached to the end of this article from Discover the Networks). But Soros supposedly gives away half a billion dollars a year undermining capitalism and democracy.

D. Soros’ Marxist-Styled Capitalism

George Soros has repeatedly made huge fortunes from betting on currency futures. For example, he bet against the UK Pound when it lost 10% of its value. He made a billion pounds sterling off this maneuver. He has done the same thing repeatedly against various countries.

In a sense, such money-making activities are quintessential Marxist dealings for several reasons. First, they do not create any capital by creating or distributing products—so he enriches no industrialists. Second, he makes his take off the currency itself, meaning all wealthy persons in the country will suffer loss. Third, such activities destabilize the country itself, making it easier for leftists to take over. Fourth, it increases his own fortune so he may use this to support revolution in other places.

E. George’s Five Steps to Bring Down a Country

Glen Beck, in his riveting and well-researched expose’ of Soros, lists five steps the crafty Hungarian has used to destabilize various countries:

After country after country after country, we found that there are five steps to him gaining control. He does it over and over and over again. So, let’s see what the steps are and let’s see if he’s done any of them here.

The first one is form a shadow government using humanitarian aid as cover. This is what he just said. It’s kind of funny. It’s kind of fun. The first step he said is subversive activities. OK?

Step two: control the airwaves. Fund existing radio and TV outlets and take control over them or start your own outlets. Remember: take control of existing or start your own.

Step three: destabilize the state, weaken the government and build an anti-government kind of feeling in this country. You exploit an economic crisis or take advantage of existing crisis—pressure from the top and the bottom. This will allow you to weaken the government and build anti- government public sentiment.

Step four: you provoke an election crisis. You wait for an election. And during the election, you cry voter fraud.

Step five: take power. You stage massive demonstrations, civil disobedience, sit-ins, general strike, you encourage activism. You promote voter fraud and tell followers what to do through your radio and television stations.

Conclusion

Marxism is the “freedom” that Soros, Obama and the Occupy protesters would like to deliver to America. But we must be aware and not naive when groups suddenly appear, realizing our times are the Age of Propaganda where precious few things are as they seem.

The madly destructive Soros, like Thomas Kyd’s Personified Revenge, grows restless and vexed not seeing America laid waste in the gutter before his octogenarian heart gives out. Perhaps Kyd had a Soros-type in mind when he wrote:

The left hand path declining fearfully,
Was ready downfall to the deepest hell,
Where userers are chok’d with melting gold,
And perjur’d wights scalded in boiling lead,
And all foul sins with torments overwhelm’d.


Postscript: The following lists some of the many anti-American and subversive-to-democracy groups Soros’ OSI funds, as found at Discover the Networks:


OSI supports a wide array of leftist organizations, including:


A key funder of the open borders movement, OSI also supports:

Internal Revenue Service records indicate thatOSImade a September 2002 grant of$20,000to the Lynne Stewart Defense Committee. Stewart was the criminal-defense attorney who was later convicted for abetting her client, the “blind sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman, in terrorist activities connected with his Islamic Group.

The Capital Research Center has published a list of additional organizations to which OSI has recently donated money, groups that according to CRC “advocate higher taxes and more government spending, oppose social security reform, litigate against property rights, oppose the death penalty, oppose tough criminal incarceration policies, oppose Bush judicial nominees, and promote balkanizing racial agendas.” These donees include the following:

  • We Interrupt This Message portrays America as a nation rife with racism and economic injustice; seeks to radicalize minority youth; aims to help the “disenfranchised” and the “marginalized” to overcome negative media stereotypes; and encourages acts of rebellion against America’s alleged injustices, as evidenced by its characterization of the 1992 Los Angeles riots as a “civil uprising.”
  • The Independent Media Institute publishes a number of regularly updated websites that offer news and opinion from a far left perspective; its Executive Director Don Hazen is a former publisher of Mother Jones magazine.
  • The Community Rights Counsel provides legal assistance to state and local governments seeking to restrict individual property rights in the name of “community interest.”
  • Equal Justice Works encourages young people to pursue careers as public interest lawyers—focusing on the areas of workers’ rights, birth control and abortion issues, consumers’ rights, disability issues, children’s rights, the death penalty, and prisoners’ rights—by funding student fellowships and helping students pay back their school loans.
  • The Legal Action Center is a public interest law firm that litigates to force health-care insurers to provide coverage for people with histories of addiction to alcohol and drugs. It also opposes community efforts to block the placement of alcohol- and drug-treatment facilities in or near residential neighborhoods.
  • Population Services International promotes wider access to birth control and abortion services in more than 60 countries worldwide.
  • The Western States Center aims to build a “progressive movement for social, economic, racial and environmental justice in…eight Western states.”
  • The Esperanza Center strives to build a political movement drawing on “women, people of color, lesbians and gay men, the working class and poor”—groups it considers “wounded by domination and inequality” in American political life.
  • The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy believes that wealthy Americans pay less than their fair share of taxes; it publishes op-eds and studies that urge states to raise taxes on higher income-earners.
  • The Network for a Progressive Texas is a coalition of “Texans who are committed toeconomic, social, and environmental justice ...engaging in collective action, and building power to affect progressive change.”
  • The Center for Law and Social Policy promotes government welfare entitlements under the heading of “economic security”;
  • the Center’s Board of Directors includes attorney Peter Edelman, husband of Children’s Defense Fund President Marian Wright Edelman.
  • The Center for Policy Alternatives is a “progressive public policy and leadership development center serving state legislators, state policy organizations, and state grassroots leaders.”
  • The Economic Policy Institute opposes social security privatization and free trade agreements such as NAFTA; it was founded in 1986 by journalist Robert Kuttner, Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich, and economist Lester Thurow.
  • The State Strategies Fund works to create a coalition of activists to support its agenda of campaign finance reform, progressive tax policy, and government-funded health care.
  • DEMOS believes that America’s social and economic ills stem largely from “the values of extreme laissez faire ideology that have deeply permeated our society,” and from the fact that “[w]e’ve been told that government is the problem, not the solution.”

A strong supporter of anti-war and environmentalist organizations, OSI is a member of the Peace and Security Funders Group. It is also a member of the International Human Rights Funders Group, a network of more than six-dozen grant-makers dedicated to bankrolling leftistorganizations and causes.

OSI endorsed a 2000 document called the Earth Charter, which blames capitalism for many of the world’s environmental, social, and economic problems. According to the Charter, “the dominant patterns of production and consumption are causing environmental devastation, the depletion of resources, and a massive extinction of species.” “The benefits of development,” adds the Charter, “are not shared equitably and the gap between rich and poor is widening.”

In the vanguard of the U.S. drug decriminalization movement, OSI in 1994 pledged $4 million to fund the establishment of the Lindesmith Center, which supports the legalization of marijuana. In 2002 OSI gave $3 million to the Tides Foundation, earmarking the money for a group called Fund for Drug Policy Reform, which opposes the War on Drugs.

OSI was a signatory to a November 1, 2001 document characterizing the 9/11 attacks as a legal matter to be addressed by criminal-justice procedures rather than military retribution.Suggesting that the hijackers were motivated chiefly by adesire to point out global injustices perpetrated by the United States, this document explained that similar future calamitiescould be averted only ifAmerica would finally begin to “promote fundamental rights around the world.”

OSIendorsed the Civil Liberties Restoration Act (CLRA) of 2004, which was designed to roll back, in the name of protecting civil liberties,vital national-security policies that had been adopted after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Numerous OSI funding initiatives reflect the Institute’s view that the American criminal-justice system is infested with racism, and that incarceration is an inappropriate punishment for most lawbreakers. For example: (a) OSI has established a “U.S. Justice Fund” to “diminish the role of prisons ...andto pave the way for the creation of a larger system of public health and social supports.” (b) In a related measure,the Institute created an “After Prison Initiative” focusing on “supporting the successful reentry of prisoners to their communities.” (c) OSI helps finance the Sentencing Project, which claims that prison sentencing patterns are racially discriminatory, and advocates in favor of granting voting rights to convicted felons. (d) OSI funds the Southern Center for Human Rights, which recruits lawyers to represent death row inmates and aims to reduce America’s alleged over-reliance on incarceration. (e) The Institute supports Critical Resistance,a program that impugns the “Prison Industrial Complex” for fostering the delusion that “caging and controlling people makes us safe.”

A strong advocate of gun control, OSI funds the Network on Small Arms,which has lobbied the United Nationsto passa measure outlawingprivate gun ownership and effectively overturning the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment.

OSI funded the multi-year United Nations Millennium Development Project—commissioned by the UN Secretary-General in 2002 “to develop a concrete action plan for the world to…reverse the grinding poverty, hunger and disease affecting billions of people. In 2005 this Projectculminated in a recommendation for a massive wealth-redistribution, foreign-aid program whose provisions, if adopted, would impose more than $150 billion in annual costs on Americans.

Each year, OSI sponsors a number of fellowships, among them, the Soros Justice Fellowship which is awarded to “outstanding individuals” who will implement projects aimed at reforming the American criminal-justice system. Most notably, OSI seeks to end “the over-reliance on incarceration and harsh punishment, and the lack of equal justice—especially for people of color and the poor.” One of the more infamous recipients of this fellowship was the radical communist Linda Evans, a former member of the Weather Underground. In the 1970s, Evans and accomplice Susan Rosenberg took part in the deadly Brinks armored-car robbery in Nyack, New York, where two security guards and two police officers were shot, three of them fatally. Three years later, the women were finally apprehended. At the time, they had 740 pounds of explosives (which they admitted were earmarked for bombings) in their possession. Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years in prison, Evans to 40 years. (She was later paroned by President Bill Clinton in January 2001.) According to FBI files, Evans, during a 1969 trip to Hanoi, was shown an anti-aircraft gun, cradled it in her arms, and said, “[I wish] an American plane would fly over.” Her OSI award was intended to aid her efforts to “increase civic participation of former prisoners.”

On August 16, 2005, OSI (in collaboration with the Center for American Progress, the AFL-CIO, the Service Employees International Union, AFSCME, and the United Steelworkers Union) launched a new organization called the Progressive Legislative Action Network (PLAN). Led by Democratic activists David Sirota and Steve Doherty, PLAN’s mission is to seed state legislatures with prewritten “model” legislation reflectingleftist visions of justice.

Between 1998 and 2003, OSI received more than $30 million from U.S. government agencies. Various State Department documents indicate that OSI has been paid to run what the Department describes as “democratization programs” in a number of countries, including Uzbekistan, Burma, and regions of Central Asia.

In an effort topresent itself in the most positive light to the American people,OSI uses the services of the public relations firm Fenton Communications.

In October 2010, OSI announced that it was donating $1.8 million to National Public Radio, in order to enable NPR to add 100 journalists at its affiliate radio stations across the United States.
