Code Pink Co-Founder Medea Benjamin Reacts to ‘Occupy Unmasked’

Medea Benjamin, left-wing activist and co-founder of Code Pink, has mixed feelings about Citizens United’s new film “Occupy Unmasked.”

Benjamin, who was featured in the film, told Breitbart News, “I don’t think it represents what the Occupy movement is all about… I think it took a small minority view and blew it up to represent the Occupy movement, so I don’t think it’s truthful.”

When asked whether or not she thought there were any parts of the film that were accurate, Benjamin explained, “it took little bits and pieces here and there but put it together in a framework that was totally inaccurate.”

She did, however, elaborate that, “if it inspires discussion and if it gets people talking to each other and if when the movie is out, they invite people from the occupy movement to come in and have a discussion, then I think it could be positive.”

Benjamin also spoke candidly about the relationship between Code Pink and one of the country’s top anarchist and union protest organizers, Lisa Fithian, who is also featured in the film.

Progressive Blogger and Occupy Salisbury Leader Ron Pagano Spews Propaganda

Letter to the editor in the Daily Times:

I’m tired of those who belittle the unemployed and those who need help from entitlement programs. These stalwarts of American individualism claim there are enough jobs for everyone who really wants to work — which means not blacks, immigrants, Hispanics or too lazy to get up off of their butts.

What is it about compassion, understanding and reality these “stalwarts” fail to grasp?

In the same breath, they praise those “rugged individuals” who “pull themselves up by their bootstraps” — those who start with nothing and scratch out a niche in their marketplace, working 18-hour days, six- or seven-day weeks, entrepreneurs of the late ’80s and ’90s, who started the “tech bubble.” Remember that one? These job creators are the backbone of America, and without them we’d have fallen into the great abyss.

Blah, blah, blah.

Call me crazy, but aren’t we deep in the abyss? Millions have lost their jobs, homes, cars, savings and investments. Those “job creators,” dot-com bubble-makers, Wall Street high-yield investment gurus, Bernie Madoff knock-offs,bankers who created the mortgage bubble and made billions when it burst and corporate executivess who sent millions of jobs overseas have sucked the life out of every working family. They point fingers at the unemployed, elderly, disabled, hungry children or mentally ill and say,”It’s their fault. Big government.Entitlement fever caused this.”

Fact: Big government didn’t cause the meltdown. It was greedy, sleight-of-hand financial games; devious, unconscionable rape of workers’ savings and investments — including homes that were manipulated into low or no-interest mortgages; creation of collatoralized debt obligations questionably rated by credit agencies; and Wall Street banks that put billions into mortgage debentures, but then ‘shorted’ them, betting that they would continue to collapse, and in the process, make them billions more without regard for the victim — the middle class.

I’m tired of hacks like Rep. Andy Harris blaming high taxes imposed on the wealthy and corporations — his supporters, the so-called “job creators” — for this economic mess.” Based on mean personal tax rates, there are only seven countries with lower rates than the United States (28 percent): Mexico (18 percent), Korea (16 percent), Australia (27 percent), Iceland (27 percent), Ireland (25 percent), New Zealand (21 percent) and Japan (27 percent). (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, 2007) The rest run up to 55 percent.

In 2008, the GAO reported that 55 percent of US businesses paid no federal income taxes during at least one year in the last seven it studied.

Based on these findings — and the widening gap between wealthy and middle-class incomes — is there anyone who really thinks the rich or businesses are worse off now than they were 30 years ago?

Editor Notes:

I am tired of leftists spewing forth lies. I am tired of being blamed for their failures and the misery they create. The type of thinking above is one big reason America is in the trouble it is now.

Occupy Salisbury: Another Failed Liberal Idea

As you can see there were thousands of angry liberal protestors this past Saturday, NOT!

In Fact…………

…there may have been more cops than protestors.

How many police officers were at the Salisbury Tea Party? Nowhere near this many.

They have no idea which way is up do they?

I wonder if more hateful Liberals would have showed up if there was free drugs, free sex and free food. maybe that is why the cops were out so early. At least Salisbury is out in front and not allowing these violent thugs to try and take our city.

This is from WMDT 47:

A dozen of citizens stood out front of Bank of America in Salisbury on Saturday to encourage residents to withdraw their money from big banks and reinvest in smaller local institutions.

They believe Bank of America and other major corporations continue to reap huge profits while a large majority of Americans suffer financial hardships.

The event is part of a nationwide day of protest some are calling it “Make Wall Street Pay,” others label it “Bank Transfer Day”.

What a big write up. Again, Liberal moochers need free items to come out and protest.

Now this pic should scare Freedom loving Americans.

Is this what the Occupy Wall Street wants? Is this what Occupy Salisbury wants?
