I am a loyal conservative and sickened by what I am seeing coming from this administration.  I encourage my friends to read up on Obama's anti-American past and try to educate my people.  I have signed up for the Obama website - although I am not supporting him in ANY way - so I can see what the democrats are sending out to their constituency.  I recently received an email from MoveOn.org.  It was a letter encouraging me to start a movement in my home town of Southlake TX - a largely conservative township of affluent corporate executives.  Obviously I will not be spearheading any MOVEMENT other than to get him voted out of office!  But what concerns me is that I HAVE NOT SIGNED ON TO ANY OCCUPY WEBSITES or EMAIL lists.  Because the only list on that side of the isle that I have signed onto was the Obama supporter website, this tells me that the Occupy movement is coming DIRECTLY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.  They have obviously given their email list to this group to promote protests.

We need to take action and expose Obama for encouraging this bad behavior.  These protesters are not doing anything positive for our country, on the contrary, they are costing us a forture in clean up.  Obama needs to take responsibility for what he is promoting and causing.  

Here is the email that I received:

Dear MoveOn member,

What happens next for the 99% movement is up to each of us. We can let it fade away, or we come together to bring it back bigger and stronger than ever this spring.

Right now, groups all over the country—inspired by the everyday heroes of Occupy Wall Street—are planning for a 99% Spring in America. It's an opportunity to build on last year's momentum with a massive campaign of bold nonviolent direct actions to confront the 1% nationwide.

That's why during the week of April 9-15, in small towns and big cities all across America, we're working with our allies to bring 100,000 people together for an unprecedented national movement-wide training on how—following in the footsteps of Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.—we can take nonviolent direct action this spring to challenge the 1%.

So far the response has been pretty amazing. More than 500 training events are already set up, and we've seen a huge surge of MoveOn members stepping up to host events—much more than anyone expected. But no one in Southlake has stepped up to coordinate a training. Can you sign up to host a local 99% Spring action training?

Yes! I'm interested in hosting a training during the week of April 9-15.

From the labor movement to the struggle for civil rights, we have an incredible shared history in America of everyday people using the power of nonviolent direct action to create change when our country needed it the most.

Last year the courage and moral clarity that we saw from the protests at the Capitol in Wisconsin to Occupy Wall Street followed in that tradition—and forced America to finally talk about economic inequality and just how badly our system is broken.

But we need a whole lot more of that kind of courageous action if we're going to create meaningful change. That's the vision for the 99% Spring, and it all starts with this massive, ambitious, plan to train 100,000 people in the theory and practice of nonviolent direct action.

Can you help by hosting a 99% Spring action training in Southlake?

Yes, I can host!

Anyone can host a training—you can have just a handful of people in your living room or you can find a local community center, place of worship, campus, or public space for a larger event. We'll follow up with all the details and provide the support and guidance you'll need to coordinate an event. We'll also help you connect and collaborate with other local 99% Spring volunteers and groups.

MoveOn members who want to see the 99% movement grow have already committed to coordinating events. But we don't have enough space yet to provide trainings to all 100,000 people. As 5 million progressives, we have a unique ability to help our movement hit that goal and grow even stronger.

Thanks for all you do.

Our movement is about to do something unprecedented: train 100,000 people over the course of just one week in nonviolent direct action. More than 500 trainings are already planned, but so far no one has volunteered to host a 99% Spring action training in Southlake. Can you host a training during the week of April 9-15?

  • Yikes.  I guess I won the lottery :)  Maybe I come from a town that doesn't have any representation?

  • I am getting emails from monkeyboys campaign as well but havent been invited to join OWS...

  • @Brad: I was referring to the 'Obama for President' support website.  

  • The Sept. 17 protest was by all accounts the culmination of Rathke's efforts. Those efforts were implemented by Lerner, an SEIU board member, who reportedly has visited the Obama White House at least four times. The SEIU’s former president, Andy Stern, was the White House's most frequent visitor in 2009.

  • I also get these messages because I believe in keeping your friends close, But keeping your enemies closer.  I used to know an old Marine that said the only way you can be assured of correction is being able to grab them by the stacking swivel (neck).

  • I want to read the whole book but I gave up file sharing when I started publicly badmouthing monkeyboy...

     

  • What Obama site are you referring to????????  I don't know of ANY Tea Party site, or any site affiliated with the Tea Party who support President Obama..... 

  • I never signed up for this website - just the Obama supporter site.  When I started receiving this sort of email it is perfectly clear to me that they are sharing information and contact info.  I will continue to post what I get from them.

  • Re: Neil Murphy.. Thanks to you.. and your comment.. I googled it & came up with the following....
     

    Take a look at this report.... It provides the direct association everyone is implying.....

    As a POI.. This reporter is someone I often publish in my own forum, since he publishes alot of work supporting Israel, and bringing scandals to the public's attention...

     

    On a balmy autumn afternoon, a stroll along lower Manhattan to Liberty Plaza, or another American city or even in squares and plazas around the world, is likely to take you to an encampment of mostly-young, mostly cheerful, determined citizens who've come together for the long haul to challenge and oppose a list of anti-social deeds, from government support of venal businessmen to excessive CO2 emissions. Under the banner of "Occupy Wall Street," a local-turned-global protest movement strives to bring your attention to injustice.

    The panoply of complaints, seen by some observers as a childish litany, is cited by others as an important renovation: Cornel West, a fiery academic activist who advised President Obama’s 2008 campaign, says, "It’s impossible to translate the issue of the greed of Wall Street into one demand, or two demands. We’re talking about a democratic awakening."

    The visible protest is by and large a data point on a historic timeline of young people confronting a tired old regime; in that sense, it's a periodic renaissance, the refreshment that society needs to move from one epoch to another.

    In the present instance, however, there's an undercurrent moving in the opposite direction, a careful manipulation of participants by a deeply non-democratic band. Behind the current Occupy Wall Street protests is a "red army" of radicals seeking no less than to provoke a new, definitive economic crisis, with their goal being the full collapse of the U.S. financial system, with the ensuing chaos to be rebuilt into a utopian socialist vision.

    The angry millennials pressing toward economic cataclysm are seasoned organizers of mass chaos aimed at provoking transformation. 

    To dismiss these rabble-rousers as mere nuisance would be a gross underestimation not only of their Saul Alinsky-style direct action and community organizing capabilities, but of the ideological alliance between these street activists and the far more patient radicals who have infiltrated Congress, shaped Barack Obama's presidential agenda, and now in fact threaten the future of our country. (For those of you not familiar with Alinsky, he is considered the father of modern community organizing.)

    Unlike the street agitators, this radical network – which I've spent the last four years investigating and have published two books documenting the research – excels in the creation of innocuous-sounding front groups, including political caucuses and think tanks, which deceptively promote their radical policies in the guise of moderation and in the rhetoric of modest-sounding social ideals.

    Scores of progressive politicians, from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to President Obama himself, have expressed support for the Occupy Wall Street movement, treating the protest movement as though it spontaneously represents popular opposition to a corrupt economic system, when a main motivating force

  • Hey Brad Levy, how much more proof do you need? The SEIU president admits it all..
