Occupy Wall Street
What is it? How is it different from the Tea Party?
I was invited to attend a rally by Mr. Robert Kern, Esq. ( http://www.kernlawoffices.com/about/ ) that was being held on December 19, 2011, noon. After I arrived at the rally, and realized Mr. Kern was an organizer with Occupy Las Vegas, which is affiliated with Occupy Wall Street, I was angry. Mr. Kern did not disclose in his email that he was an organizer for OLV, and in it he'd also stated that "several organizations are getting together" to unite in this protest. I found out upon arrival that the "other organizations" Mr. Kern had refered to are the local 911 "truthers" organization, mostly led by Mr. Bob Stansel, and the Ron Paul campaign representative, Mr. Robert Walker. Political activists in Las Vegas have been fighting for rights for a long time, and we all know each other fairly well. At least well enough to recognize each other at rallies. Both Mr. Walker and I agreed that had we known this was an "occupy" rally, we would not have come. Mr. Stansel will attend anything that creates a gathering, he has little regard for the purpose of others, and will use anybody and anything to further his own agenda...much like our politicians.
After my initial anger, I decided it was a perfect opportunity to see up close, for myself, what Occupy is all about, and ask it's members directly. What I discovered, is that these people have no idea what "occupy" is about, or why they are there. They don't know its history, origins, or the principles of the movement with which they are aligning themselves. Even Mr. Kerns, whom I really expected to be a bit more educated due to his status as a trained attorney, was ignorant of many of the facts surrounding "occupy" and even the founding principles of American politics.
As is often the case, people are ignorant of facts, and blindly follow and adopt new "fads" they have been told are beneficial. That is what I find with the "occupy" movement. Most of these people align themselves with this movement because they hate the Tea Party, and they hate the Tea Party because they have been told it's a "republican" or "conservative" organization. They know nothing about what the Tea Party really is, or what "occupy" really is. At this time, it's impossible to state the origins of the "occupy" movement, because the "official" statements on the Occupy Wall Street websites have evovled and changed with the movement. Now, basically, it is what they say it is, at any given moment. The Tea Party has remained unchanged from the start.
The "occupy" development is not a "movement" in the socio-political sense...it is a disruptive, anti-capitalist, anti-republican, anti-American, socialist scheme hatched by Stephen Lerner, and a handful of others, who are bent on causing mayhem, and they have preyed upon the naive, ignorant, young dis-enfranchised feeling, entitlement seekers to help them do it.
I will, however, make one point...I was the only Tea Party member who showed up to this rally to protest the NDAA. Say what you will about "Occupy", but they showed up, and stood up.
Enough with the dissertation. Below are the interviews. Decide for yourself.
Can you tell the difference?
I hesitate to write anything on the LVTP website about this group of protestors. I don't want to lend them any credence or legitimacy that they don't deserve. However, so many concerned citizens have asked me about what the OWS protest is, and the LVTP position on the movement, I felt it is time to make a statement. OWS has gotten sufficient sympathetic and false attention from the main stream media, and are being reported by some as "like the Tea Party", the truth should be told somewhere. So I will do my best.
First....OWS IS NOT THE TEA PARTY. OWS IS NOT LIKE THE TEA PARTY. OWS WAS NEVER CONCEIVED OF ALONG ANY OF THE PRINCIPLES THAT THE TEA PARTY SUPPORTS.
Here is an article I wrote on the subject in August, 2011. Many of us in the Tea Party saw this coming. We tried to warn people.
Global Agenda 21…even if it’s called Democracy, Freedom, or Protesting
What I failed to point out in the above article, because it is obvious to the audience it was written for, is that this OWS protest is part of Agenda 21, and that this statement is false: "A large majority of the American people consistently support the following agenda". Show me the statistics to back this up. I don't support this agenda. Each of the topics listed on this agenda would require a massive tome of explanations, so I won't take up your time here.

Outlined below are portions of comments and articles made by other Tea Party members, and members of other Patriotic groups around the country, in regards to Occupy Wall Street.
