Occupy Wall Street did not grow from grass roots discontent. It burst forth full grown overnight. And all that supposed righteous anger dissipated in the wink of an eye on the 15th of November – almost as though the whole event had been programed and staged. But to what purpose? And by whom?
Well, it did succeed in imposing a virtual news blackout for two months. And whom did that benefit – when a September NYT/CBS poll found the President’s popularity plummeting and he was about to make some very unpopular announcements, such as a ruinous deficit reduction plan (19 September) and a commitment to withdraw all troops from Iraq by year's end (21 October)? Was OWS just an orchestrated distraction?
When the Congressional investigation of the IRS scandal began to dominate public attention, a civilian passenger jet was shot down over Easter Ukraine. But why did the junta in Kiev reroute that plane over a war zone – where it would be within range of the junta’s SAM missile launchers? In any case, the event produced a virtual blackout of US media at a time when the Obama regime sorely needed a distraction.
Who is reeling from growing public outcries over the deluge of criminal immigrants flooding across our southern borders? Who is facing public outrage at the Muslims massacring Christians in the vacuum left by our precipitous exit from Iraq?
Whose public relations MO is deny, denounce, and distract?
"The mess on the border is not my fault. It was caused by the Republicans in Congress. Oh look! There’s a riot in Missouri."
Engineering these constant distractions is expensive, of course, but it’s worth it if it keeps you and I from watching what the Obama regime is doing to us. Besides, it’s not Obama’s money. It’s yours.
