Are the Clueless 'Occupy Wall Street' Protesters Puppets of the Elite?

I wrote below:
My guess is that most of the protesters are against "profit" and fail to realize that profit is the fuel that keeps an economy growing. They fail to realize that the real problem is not profit (and loss)but that the government protects the incompetent banksters from losses.
Infowars is reporting along the same lines and suggesting that the usual suspects including George Soros are playing a role in the protests:
Despite their honest intentions, many of the Occupy Wall Street protesters are being suckered into a trap and calling for the very “solutions” that are part of the financial elite’s agenda to torpedo the American middle class – higher taxes and more big government.

Watch the clip below in which journalist Adam Kokesh talks to Occupy Wall Street protesters [in Washington D.C.].

The ignorance displayed in these interviews knows no bounds. The protesters just don’t get it. They are calling for the government to use force to impose their ideas, all in the name of bringing down corporations who they don’t realize have completely bought off government regulators. Corporations and government enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship – getting one to regulate the other is asinine and only hurts smaller businesses who are legitimately trying to compete in a free market economy that barely exists.

The zeal for totalitarian government amongst some of the “protesters” is shocking. One sign being carried around read, “A government is an entity which holds the monopolistic right to initiate force,” which seems a little ironic when protesters complain about being physically assaulted by police in the same breath.

One woman interviewed by Kokesh also announces her intention to help Obama to capture a second term. How can a self-proclaimed Occupy Wall Street protester simultaneously support the man whose 2008 campaign was bankrolled by Wall Street, whose 2012 campaign is reliant on Wall Street to an even greater extent, and whose cabinet was filled with Wall Street operatives?

Something is very wrong with this picture.

The usual suspects, mega-rich foundations and elitists, behind the young radicals have also started to emerge – George Soros, The Ruckus Society, the Tides Foundation and the Ford Foundation...

The thousands of Americans currently expressing their disgust at Wall Street and the bankers who have ruined the economy to the detriment of the poor and middle class should be commended for getting off their hind ends and doing something, unlike the millions who will continue to watch American Idol, drink beer and laugh in ignorance as the country is flushed down the toilet. It should also be added that there is a sprinkling of “End the Fed” demonstrators who truly understand the root cause of the problem.

However, the fact that the majority of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators are advocating “solutions” which the very elite they claim to be protesting against also want should set alarm bells ringing. The official Occupy Wall Street website vehemently supports Obama’s tax agenda, again in the deluded belief that Obama, the ultimate Wall Street puppet, genuinely wants to go after big corporations who use loopholes to avoid paying income tax.


  1. Protesters tend to be stupid parasites and the political terrorist's News Media wants to make these weak-minded fools the "face" of the protest just to discredit the mob. Wouldn't you?

  2. I must say that I absolutely loved Kokesh's argument against that collectivist when discussing the use of force.

    I knew about Kokesh's situation regarding the Marine Corps and his discharge, as well as his political activism. But, I never knew that he was a libertarian.

    The great thing is that I learned that he is a libertarian by watching him use the libertarian principles of private property and non-aggression to completely obliterate a collectivist position. In fact, in the video above, he didn't even have to say much, the collectivist stooge killed his own position by using the "ends justifying the means" argument by saying that it is ok to kill people just so long as the "social benefit" is increased.

    Thanks for posting this, Robert.

  3. I urge, implore, BEG the people that read this message to tweet @OccupyWallSt that we should focus on the Federal Reserve buildings, in NYC & DC as the center of these protests. They are growing each week, and if we can get Ron Paul supporters to carry banners, and literature, that show how the FED is responsible for this mess then maybe these protests will have some impact. Wall St is just an agent of the FED, and couldn't commit their myriad crimes without their implicit and explicit support.

    I'm seriously considering flying to NYC next weekend to take part, but only if I think we can channel this inchoate anger in the right direction.

  4. oh brother..

    "over-educated" my ass

  5. Unbelievable, speaking as a recent college graduate who is struggling to find work, these kids are an embarrassment. I would love to know how much mommy and daddy are footing the tuition bill for these kids.

  6. Did anyone notice just how unstable their position was when confronted by Kokesh? It appears they are completely unaware of just what they are really protesting or what they want to accomplish by the protest. It is certain that the principles they supposedly espouse are little more than that of

  7. A gaggle of Leftist goons who don't know shit from apple butter. They're so indoctrinated that stupidity or mental retardation is preferable.

    They think that "profit" is evil. Ask one of these morons to define "profit." They can't do it. Saying "profit" is the problem is saying "living hand-to-mouth" is the solution.

  8. Richard, There might be a way to libertarianize a lot of these lefties. Please print up and bring to NY big 2 sided signs and boxes of 2 sided cards suggested by my business associate Wolfgang Bohringer over at ronpaulforums:

    Side 1: "War is a State Socialist Racket"

    Side 2: "War is a State Capitalist Racket"

    Often lefty-commie-anarchist types hate libertarians and anarcho-"capitalists" more than anything. But that's because libertarians use loaded terms like "capitalist" and "socialist" to mean "free market capitalist" and "state socialist". But actually there is such a thing as STATE capitalism and free market socialism.!&p=3611074&viewfull=1#post3611074

  9. I don't think you've interpreted that sign correctly. It appears to me that the person carrying that sign was identifying a problem.

  10. Moral to this video - When participating in a protest, make sure you know what it is you are protesting and why. Comes in very handy if someone decides to ask you a few questions...

  11. The Fed created this mess, but what created the fed? The federal government. If you end the Fed it will just be created again because the federal government will still be there. Don't make the same mistake twice. We had a small limited federal government once. It didn't work. It went bad. They always go bad. Every time. Without fail. The only real answer is to end the creator of the Fed, the federal government. We don't need it, never did, never will.

  12. One sign being carried around read, “A government is an entity which holds the monopolistic right to initiate force,”

    That sign is something that any libertarian could use. It simply defines the essence of government, and leaves the readers to work out the conclusions.

  13. Isn't the sign about the government monopoly of force most likely intended to make Kokesh's point? That sounds like pure anarchism to me, not a statist placard.

  14. Ron Paul 2012. The only one that really talks about ending the fed. The latest fed audit shows they loaned out$16.5 Trillion dollars of taxpayers money at basically 0% interest. Basically the privately owned fed gave loans to many of the very banks that own the fed. Doesn't anyone see anything wrong with this picture? And this was only from the years 2008-2010. There's no telling what they were doing for the other 95 years of existence.

  15. correction to Richard Dale Fitzgerald
    The Fed IS run by certain "Wall St"banks, i.e. the heads of the Fed cartel.

  16. I hate Kokesh, but good god those protesters are idiots. Their basic lack of knowledge is astounding and seriously disturbing.

    I think there will be more of this in the next few years, young unemployed college age kids taking to the streets without the concrete knowledge of why they're doing it.

  17. Why are people taking infowars seriously? They are conspiracy loons- they regularly put out articles about how 9/11 was an inside job.

    One of the "elite" untra-rich groups that they site is the Ruckus Society, a low profile direct action group made up of volunteers in Oakland a operated on donations- hardly a shadowy front group funneling secret money to protests in NYC.

    Take of your tinfoil hats people.

  18. Adam Kokesh, Koch Brother Puppet of the Elite Corporations. I choose the government over UNELECTED Corporations ANYDAY! Adam Kokesh, Anonymous knows about you, and we will destroy you.

  19. "people who are willing to use their brain power..."

    use yours first.

  20. Did anyone notice how these kids were dressed?
    Expensive,fashionable clothing. They have no clue about the real world,or suffering. Just like their leader Obama.

  21. "Saying "profit" is the problem is saying "living hand-to-mouth" is the solution."

    Saying "profit" is the problem is...well, then...Suicide may be your best lifestyle choice.

    Wow. How do people this old get to be this stupid and be able to live? Capitalism is the ONLY thing keeping these fools alive yet they are too stupid to realize it. The movie "Idiocracy" is a documentary.

  22. To be fair these are NOT the people that were seen being beaten by the cops... is it possible that you interviewed the only three kids wearing designer clothes? or was it your intention to only get one perspective?

  23. This is a bunch of B.S.
    This protest is NOT part of a political or religious agenda. There are 100's of Republicans, Democrats, and everything in between there.
    Don't believe these edited videos

  24. @Anon 11:00 AM,

    You are mistaken on something. Every protest is part of a political or religious agenda. This has always been the case throughout history. Religion and the State are the only two spheres of influence on man. Which oner man allows to influence him and why is a different matter altogether....

    This, however, does not mean the videos were not/ are not edited. I am not commenting on that, but you are committing a non-sequitur in your argument.

  25. It's fellows like this cravat-wearing douche bag that sat chomping their pipes as they drew up plans for the Gulags in Soviet Russia. I'm not exaggerating. He's exactly that type of person. We need to expose them for their power-hungry selves like Kokesh does so well here.

  26. To understand the rot at the core, people need to educate themselves regarding the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.

  27. It is amazing to me that you are going to let a few people speak for thousands. If you would pay attention to media that does not have a biased agenda, you would see that there are not only well informed citizens, but there is also very much a general consensus of the greviences. See yesterdays Countdown? The majority of us understand it is not profit in general that is the issue. The majority of us know why it is an occupation of Wall Street. The majority of us do very much know about the bail outs of the banks, as well as the hefty financial bonuses the top dogs received immediately after the bail out. The majority of us know about lobbyist, which is way we support Ratigans movent to "get the money out". The various items listed are the complaints that we (the 99%) are uniting for. We do not see corporations as people and are angry that we no longer have a voice ... That it is corportacracy, so to speak, rather than democracy. We are the uneducated and the educated. We are the employed, underemployed, and unemployed. We are young, middle-age, and old. We are men and womyn, of all races and ethnicities, all sexual orientations ... You get the point, we are diverse and come together because we are angry, yes for various reasons, but it is all connected with corruption and greed.

  28. This video is so frustrating. It makes me want to just pack up and leave the country. The problem is, the majority of the people you run into think this way. The way this chick was looking at Adam at the end when he was talking about the wars. She is so clueless.

    Where can I run to? Get me out of here!
