A Very George Soros Agenda for the Occupy Movement

Adbusters the outfit that launched the Occupy Wall Street movement is calling for a month long occupation of Chicago in May, which will coincide with G8 and NATO summits in the Windy City:
Hey you redeemers, rebels and radicals out there,

Against the backdrop of a global uprising that is simmering in dozens of countries and thousands of cities and towns, the G8 and NATO will hold a rare simultaneous summit in Chicago this May. The world’s military and political elites, heads of state, 7,500 officials from 80 nations, and more than 2,500 journalists will be there.

And so will we.

On May 1, 50,000 people from all over the world will flock to Chicago, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and #OCCUPYCHICAGO for a month. With a bit of luck, we’ll pull off the biggest multinational occupation of a summit meeting the world has ever seen.

And this time around we’re not going to put up with the kind of police repression that happened during the Democratic National Convention protests in Chicago, 1968 … nor will we abide by any phony restrictions the City of Chicago may want to impose on our first amendment rights. We’ll go there with our heads held high and assemble for a month-long people’s summit … we’ll march and chant and sing and shout and exercise our right to tell our elected representatives what we want … the constitution will be our guide.

And when the G8 and NATO meet behind closed doors on May 19, we’ll be ready with our demands

What are their demands?

Get a load of this:

A Robin Hood Tax, aka, the Soros tax. This is what I wrote in October:
In his 2005 book, George Soros on Globalization, Soros writes not only in favor of the tax, but discuses how to "mobilize public opinion" for such a tax:

The globalization of financial markets has given capital an unfair advantage over other sources of taxation, a tax on financial transactions would redress the balance...the tax ought to be extended to all markets, not just currency markets... Collection has to be worldwide, including tax havens. How could it be enforced? The collecting country must be given a portion of the proceeds...To mobilize public opinion of increased international assistance, the proposal must not only show how the money will be raised but how it will be spent.

Adbusters, thus, is putting out the call to promote a plan that Soros wants so bad, that in his book, he discusses paying off foreign governments, and mobilizing public opinion, to get the tax implemented
Got that? A bunch of tent living, barely surviving protesters are being advised to put at the top of their agenda a proposal that a manipulating billionaire wants to see desperately implemented and that will immensely benefit him.

What's next on the agenda for the Occupy movement, as presented by the curious Adbusters?
a ban on high frequency ‘flash’ trading
I am not going to embarrass myself and go out to Freedom Plaza or McPherson Square to talk to the occupiers (before they are removed by police) and ask them if they even know what flash trading is.

Naturally, the removal of flash trading does create another edge for Soros in his trading.

Adbusters contends that these proposals come up at general assemblies:
...whatever we decide in our general assemblies and in our global internet brainstorm – we the people will set the agenda for the next few years and demand our leaders carry it out.
Puhleeze, the Soros tax and the banning of flash trading coming up at an assembly of muddied sheep? Yeah right. There's a big shadow over this occupation and it's the shadow of a man who isn't living in a tent.


  1. I have to admit, when I reached the part about 'flash trading,' I almost started to laugh.

    Gotta hand it to the billionaires...they know how to persuade people to yearn for their chains.

  2. aaah,

    Useful Idiots!
