Sarah Palin Nails OWS Hypocrisy

At a Republican meeting not far from here, Sarah Palin nailed the difference between the Tea Party and the Occupy Whatever crowds. While we all may agree that the bailouts were wrong, and we should end the fed, as some occupiers seem to protest, my answer is make the government so small and impotent they can't give bailouts.  OWS says "give me the money instead of them". 
"They say 'Wall Street fat cats got a bailout so now I want one too.' And the correct answer is no one is entitled to a bailout," Palin told the crowd of about 1,000 at the Republican Party of Florida dinner. "The American dream, our foundation, is about work ethic and empowerment, not entitlement."

She compared the protesters and President Barack Obama to the "crony capitalists" they say they oppose.

"Barack Obama is owned by Wall Street [see here - Graybeard]. The fat cats, as he calls them, they're his friends. They're his pals. That's where he gets his campaign donations. And he's very generous about giving these cats their cat nip — bigger returns on their investments in bailouts," Palin said.
She went on to try and convince OWS that they need to be protesting Washington, where the policies they claim to oppose come from.  Fat chance.

As long as this coalition holds together, I remain convinced this is open source civil war.  They are coming for us.  It's a non-violent movement?  "Puh-leeze".  They desperately want violence.  They desperately need violence to provoke a government clamp down.  Once the regular folks see enough violence, they'll beg the government to clamp down on the protesters - and they'll clamp down on all of us.  "Top down, bottom up, inside out" as Van Jones calls for.  Hate going through TSA molestations at the airports or on the interstate?  That's only the beginning. 

Just a couple of weeks ago, I was pondering how communists and anarchists could possibly march together when one wants no government whatsoever and the other wants absolute totalitarian government that controls every aspect of their lives.  El Marco records this poster seen on location in Evil Clowns and Radical Ringmasters of the Anti-Capitalist Revolution in Denver 
Translation: stick together until we overthrow the government, then we can kill them.

The Communists and the Anarchists have usually teamed up for their glorious revolutions, and then of course the Communists seize power and begin exterminating the anarchists.

Also, many anarchists identify themselves as 'anarchist communists'.

Anon 0106 - they have a long history of working together (apparently back to the time of King Arthur -- but don't pay too much mind to the historical inaccuracy in this great video). And a long history of commies killing off anarchists.

Who should have the advantage when slaughtering time comes? The ones who can't tolerate any direction, or the ones who create a massive army?
