It’s time to clear them out and clean the park. Who would have guessed. Maybe this is not working the way they thought it would.
The request to clean Zuccotti Park is coming from the company that owns it, Brookfield Office Properties, on whose behalf the chief executive wrote a two-page letter to the NYPD asking for help “to clear the Park” and to “assist” on an “ongoing basis” to keep the area safe and clean.
Now as for who is behind the occupiers?
Anti-Wall Street protesters say the rich are getting richer while average Americans suffer, but the group that started it all may have benefited indirectly from the largesse of one of the world’s richest men.
There has been much speculation over who is financing the disparate protest, which has spread to cities across America and lasted nearly four weeks. One name that keeps coming up is investor George Soros, who in September debuted in the top 10 list of wealthiest Americans. Conservative critics contend the movement is a Trojan horse for a secret Soros agenda.
Soros and the protesters deny any connection. But Reuters did find indirect financial links between Soros and Adbusters, an anti-capitalist group in Canada which started the protests with an inventive marketing campaign aimed at sparking an Arab Spring type uprising against Wall Street. Moreover, Soros and the protesters share some ideological ground.
“I can understand their sentiment,” Soros told reporters last week at the United Nations about the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, which are expected to spur solidarity marches globally on Saturday.
Reuters might just be finding this out but some bloggers and other more right wing sites have known all along. To see a graph of the left’s total involvement in this take a look at this flow chart in Gateway Pundit. Also there is this: The mayor’s girlfriend Diana Taylorserves on Brookfield’s board.
Notice I am categorizing this as Cargo Cult, for that is the thinking behind these people. They seem to have no concept of the real world and from whence goods and services actually come. They seem to believe if you ask it will happen and have bought into the concept of the movie, “If you build it they will come.” That was a sweet movie but not actually the way it happens in real life and the free market economy.
