Great news: OWS now endorsed by both Communist and Nazi Parties

posted at 8:45 am on October 17, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Just yesterday, Barack Obama asserted that Martin Luther King, Jr would have supported the Occupy Movement.  If so, he would have found himself in the midst of some strange bedfellows:

In a move that may redefine the term “strange bedfellows,” the American Nazi Party issued an official endorsement of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement on Sunday afternoon. The announcement put the organization, a self-described “National Socialist” political party, in company with the Socialist Party USA, which explained its own support for the left-wing protesters in a nationwide conference call last Tuesday night, crediting organized labor with the protests’ strength and sophistication to date.

The American Nazi Party is the most politically sophisticated U.S. remnant — but by no means the only one — of white supremacist Adolph Hitler’s murderous 20th century movement. The party calls Hitler’s Mein Kampf “an ideological blueprint for healthy Aryan survival.”

In its statement on Sunday, the Westland, Mich.-based Nazi party wrote that the Occupy Wall Street protests are “TAYLOR [sic] MADE for National Socialists, as well as WN [White Nationalists] who are serious about DOING SOMETHING.”

“I urgently URGE all of you,” the statement’s unnamed author added, “to TAKE PART and JOIN IN when these protests hit your neck of the woods. Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the ‘JEW BANKER’ influence — DON’T wear anything marking you as an ‘evil racist’ — and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD!”

Hey, they’re way ahead of you Nazis on that score.  Just check out the pics from Zombie and Ringo from Occupy LA to see just why the Nazis might be cheering these protests from the sidelines — or maybe even closer to the action.  We posted it before, but this video from Reason also shows why the Nazis think they can find fertile recruiting ground at Occupy rallies:

Interviewer: “Name and affiliation?”

Occupy Los Angeles protester: “Patricia McAllister, I’m here representing myself but I do work for the Los Angeles Unified School District. I think that the Zionist Jews who are running these big banks and our Federal Reserve — which is not run by the federal government — they need to be run out of this country.”

Now the White House has apparently decided to align itself with Communists and Nazis, at least for the political benefit:

President Obama and his team have decided to turn public anger at Wall Street into a central tenet of their reelection strategy.

The move comes as the Occupy Wall Street protests gain momentum across the country and as polls show deep public distrust of the nation’s major financial institutions.

And it sets up what strategists see as a potent line of attack against Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, a former investment executive whom Obama aides plan to portray as a wealthy Wall Street sympathizer.

Perhaps Obama should start with an explanation of how MLK Jr would have found himself on the same side as Nazis in any public issue, especially after yesterday’s explicit suck-up to the movement during the dedication ceremony for King’s monument.  I’d love to hear him connect King’s exhortation to judge men by the content of their character with the rampant anti-Semitism displayed at the Occupy rallies to such an extent that it has Nazis cheering.

Communist leaders are openly praised by the democratic party…especially by their money train union co-horts:

US AFL-CIO Leader Accepts Communist Party Award: ‘I Stand With Them
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/afl-cio-leader-gladly-accepts-communist-party-award/

Those who doubt the connection between the communist party and the unions need only to read accounts of a recent awards ceremony to see how both groups view each other.

On Sunday, December 5, the Communist Party USA gave awards to a pair of labor leaders and a former state legislator and assistant attorney general.* Among the recipients was Connecticut AFL-CIO head John Olsen, who not only gladly accepted the award, but garnered “loud applause” when he said he stands with CPUSA.’

….which is no surprise seeing how most democrats view themselves as Socialist:

So are the Occupy Protestors against the freedom to make transactions? Corporations created goods or services and sell their goods or services at a price that the buyer and seller both agree on. So that makes them greedy?

Meanwhile, people who blow their money to the point that they cannot afford insurance and they never save any money eventually have to retire with nothing and then expect everyone who does save their money to pay their way. These people are considered saints.

Many racialists are unsure about, and even against, these Occupy Wall Street protests all around the country. It has been pointed out to me that many protesters are non-white and/or “communists.” Well my answer to that is: “WHO CARES?!” They are against the same evil, corrupted, degenerate capitalist elitists that WE are against! Instead of screaming, “6 million more!” The pro-white movementites should be JOINING this Occupy movement and supporting it!

Got into an argument last week with someone trying to argue that The Nazis were right-wing capitalists… just like the Tea Party.

How’s that working out?

A May Day rally in Los Angeles, co-sponsored by the SEIU and various communist groups, as well as other unions, reflected yet another step in the normalization of self-identified communist and socialist ideologies in the Obama era. Not only did the SEIU help to organize the rally in conjunction with communists, they marched side-by-side with communists, while union members carried communist flags, communists carried union signs, and altogether there was no real way to tell the two apart.

Communist have urged their members to unite with democrats since their agenda has so many parallels…..

As an ex-ACORN insider and ex-radical who used Democrat donor lists to raise money for ACORN alter-ego Project Vote and designed the ACORN 2005, 2006 and 2007 Political Operations Year End PowerPoint presentations, I know that President Obama (for whom I now regretfully admit I proudly voted) was an ACORN guy for many years and realize that he became the instrument for the implementation of its stealth socialism agenda.

Quote from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka

we need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations which have distorted our economy and hijacked our government. That’s a long-term job, but one we should start now

I hope Obama keeps “embracing” the protests. Let the independents and liberals see that he’s now to the left of The New Republic. They claim to be skeptical but sound downright scared in their editorial.

But, to draw on the old cliché, the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. Just because liberals are frustrated with Wall Street does not mean that we should automatically find common cause with a group of people who are protesting Wall Street. Indeed, one of the first obligations of liberalism is skepticism—of governments, of arguments, and of movements. And so it is important to look at what Occupy Wall Street actually believes and then to ask two, related questions: Is their rhetoric liberal, or at least a close cousin of liberalism? And is this movement helpful to the achievement of liberal aims?

Drained Brain on October 17, 2011 at 10:06 AM

The uber leftist progressive wing of the democrat party was pretty much all that was left after the democrat wipe out in the Mid Term elections aka the professional left. This is what was leftover brain storming their comeback. Everyone should mark this period in time, and take note of the condition of the democrat party- present tense.

Obama is flailing around after, Soros, the Unions, ACORN, , pale pink Canadian Marxist (adbusters) have done their best to create a fertile populist movement for Obama, to give the appearance, he has street cred with the left. The Obama reelection team, and the DNC are mucking up, what Soros et al, might have been able to pull off…but unlikely, dear George, it’s called the internet. We get it’s an election year, and we get it’s a rent a mob. And not a clearly defined rent a mob at that, apparently if you use Soros money, and run it through craig’s list, this is what you get – happy parents, and empty basements across the country ;)

OWS was created to gin up Obama’s far left base the professional left, the firebaggers for the upcoming 2012 election they are trying to reignite Obamania.

Obama has started to l link himself to the movement, and then these endorsements start being made….The DNC has skrewed the pooch. Obama needs the Independents to turn out for him in 2012. There is no way you get White suburban soccer Moms voting for Obama in 2012 if this is the face of what he stands for (The Democrat Platform).

Apparently what’s left of the democrat party have decided to form a circular firing squad.

The left had protesters out every day leading up to Nixon getting reelected in a landslide in 72. This behavior turns off the “Majority” of American voters.

I’m not impressed, the OWS has FUBAR written all over it. Now it’s just going to turn into a pile on the goat. If I was a parent, I would be insisting my kid remove themselves posthaste from the stinky festivities. Let the firebaggers nurse their own ugly baby.

If you could read….you would see that these are not “fringe” groups.
The communist party and socialism is fully endorsed by democrats and the groups that support them like the Unions.

The democratic party marches with socialist/communist….is supported by socialist/communist…..is honored by socialist/communist….and many of it’s leaders and MSM pundits are avid socialist/communist.

That’s not fringe…that’s full blown support.

Uh, no. No they are not “fully endorsed”.
What a steaming pile of stupid that is.

Dave Rywall on October 17, 2011 at 10:37 AM

When fringe group as*holes cheer for the tea party, they’re quickly dismissed. But for OWS? Noooo, the Nazis! The Commies! It’s indictative of something something!

So stupid.

Dave Rywall on October 17, 2011 at 9:56 AM

Pal, you think that the Nazi party and the Communist Party are fringe groups?
Really, that’s what you think? And, btw, the Tea Party ran whatever fringe group showed up, they didn’t embrace them and take them in…but then a guy like you can’t recognize the difference between two signs at a rally, and an organization that is national, officially started in 1919, and has run many people for president, and is an institution on college campuses.

That must be part of that “greater inclusiveness” Todd Essig was talking about.

The OWS movement is indeed just like the Arab Spring: The mobs topple the existing structures of government, and then the organized extremists swoop in and take over.

And Democrats think this is a good idea?

I’ve been PO’d about the coverage of this from day one.Headlines fawning over this mindless rabble. Enough to give one an ulcer. I just have to realize that the Media will never tell the real story because they want Obama re-elected. Fast and Furious subpoenas anyone?Never has made the major news. There is no point in relying on the old media. We’re going to have to hope anyone with intelligence would look elsewhere for the truth…

You were being facetious, right?

Germans bombing Pearl Harbor was (as I take it) simply an Animal House reference. But the fact is, many in the West did endorse fascism in the 1920s & 30s. It was a respectable option, the original Third Way between the “excesses” of Capitalism and communism. While 1930s Hitler and Mussolini were seen as somewhat clownish, they “got things done.”

Don’t underestimate the rhetoric again. Last time, it got an awful lot of people killed.

I’ve been on some of the area “occupy” movement websites, and their imagery and slogans are disturbing. They use the clenched fist image, which to me looks like they’re threatening to punch someone, and they close their slogans with the phrase “expect us”. That also seems to be a physical threat.

juliesa on October 17, 2011 at 10:36 AM

The clenched fist is from the radical Black Panther Party of the 60′s (been around for much longer but this is the modern day reincarnation)…maybe the most famous are the sprinters John Carlos and Tommie Smith at the Mexican Olympics.

right2bright on October 17, 2011 at 10:44 AM

Isn’t this exactly how millions of Jews were persecuted and then slaughtered? The sh*t disturber, Hitler, preyed on the people of Germany at the height of their economic turmoil…. it wasn’t their fault or the government’s fault, it was the Jews.

And right now, right before our eyes.

I’ve been to many tea party events, but I never saw anything like this:

Now the White House has apparently decided to align itself with Communists and Nazis, at least for the political benefit:

Not sure it’s just political. Obama did sit and listen to Wright for 20 years. Despite his denials of having actually listened to Wrights message. Wright in his own right is a racist. Nothing good can come from this.

Nazi’s are evil!!! And I don’t think they were to fond of blacks. Not sure they are now. We also have what I see as blacks acting like Nazi’s with their anti semitism. Shame on them.

This is getting waaaaaaaaaay out of hand. What do we do now? Wait for the first bullet to be fired? My God, what the hell is happening to this country? Shame on the President for preaching he’d unite the country, and all he’s done is divide it more, and help others along with this even further. ENOUGH!!!!!!!!

capejasmine on October 17, 2011 at 11:05 AM

Just saw on Drudge that just like Iran, China backs the occupiers. What does that tell you?

sandee on October 17, 2011 at 11:32 AM

OWS’s message fits the super leftwing policies of the Nazis, Commies and Democrats so it works out just fine.

Did not get the Animal House reference, it’s been a long time since I watched that. That is the part was questioning.

As to the rest, yeah. Wilson’s ‘progressivism’ was fully compatible with fascism.
