Van Jones, former Obama administration green jobs czar an Communist, claims the Occupy Wall Street movement basically “saved the entire country from destruction.”

He also claimed that next week they will start a massive training effort similar to that done in the 1960's in an effort to teach protesters nonviolent civil disobedience. This latest movement called “The 99% Spring”. His group, "Rebuild the American Dream, is partnering with the SEIU, MoveOn.org, the Domestic Workers Alliance and others to train 100,000 people across the country in direct action."
“[The] Occupy movement pretty much saved the entire country from destruction,” Jones said in an interview (http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/21505345) posted online. “Both political parties were barreling toward more austerity, more cutbacks, more pain for the people and more — basically both political parties had managed to converge on this idea of basically no rules for the rich, no rights for the poor, no middle class to speak of. That was basically the agenda, the question was just how much pain how fast.”

“Occupy Wall Street came on and completely disrupted the narrative,” he said. All the ‘austerity, austerity, cut, cut, cut’ stuff went away and suddenly even Republicans had to talk about income inequality and that whole theme. Occupy Wall Street really kind of, like, helped us to hit a reset in the country.”

Yeah, right -- if you look at the 60's movement, every display of "nonviolent civil disobedience" was followed by an extremely violent riot somewhere.

Unfortunately, it's only starting. Mixed with the global warming scams, anti-Zimmerman and hate-Whitey marches, I firmly believe we've only seen the tip of the iceberg headed our way this election year.

The leftist protests of last summer and Fall will look like TEA party rallies compared to what's headed our way between now and November.

I agree.

The good news is its nothing a few soap cannons can't take care of.

That is the biggest crock of poop I have heard from any idiot in a long time.


But I'm not surprised, considering the source.
