More democrat co-option of Occupy

Some who have thrown in with Bernie Sanders (meaning, who have thrown in with the democrats who destroyed us) say they are with Occupy. I recognize at least one name of a staunch democrat who sought to use the Occupy movement for the democrats, blocked me on facebook when I DARED challenge the dems...and Mark Provost, of US Uncut, who told me he gladly works with "occupy democrats", the pro-Obama PAC for the democrats who have absolutely =nothing= to do with Occupy aside from stealing our name to build votes for the democrat party (check their Facebook "about" page). Pure, sick co-option with willing players.

These people were not Occupy, or are not. Only a Declaration from the NYC GA speaks for Occupy, and democrats and the billionaires have made that impossible. There can no longer be any consensus. Occupy has no leaders or representatives. That was part of the point: each voice is equal, matters equally. No leaders.

The NYC GA clearly states: "Occupy Wall Street is a people’s movement. It is party-less, leaderless, by the people and for the people. It is not a business, a political party, an advertising campaign or a brand.  It is not for sale."

"Any statement or declaration not released through the General Assembly and made public online at should be considered independent of Occupy Wall Street.

We wish to clarify that Occupy Wall Street is not and never has been affiliated with any established political party, candidate or organization.  Our only affiliation is with the people."

Statement of Autonomy


Occupy Wall Street @OccupyWallStNYC
We are non-partisan. Both major parties have sold out the American people. #OWS

At one time Occupy held the national narrative. WE were the power. We knew we could do it, that we didn't need "them", that they had all sold out the American people. They then fought back with endless robocops and media smearing, as they do to any social movement which might compete with their power. Now, it's no longer a knowing that WE can do it; it's "give our power to them" because they're the only game in town. That's what they do; that's all they do. Destroy competition to force everyone to play THEIR game, in which only the 1% ever actually win. Note that it's an endless push-and-pull which never, ever resolves. That's on purpose. It keeps us always at the throats of the "others", instead of organizing into our own power. Dems will scream YOU WANT REPUBLICANS TO WIN! over and over. Fuck them. They all have to be jailed along with their corporate overlords or this country will die. Democrats are just as filthy a group of power-mongers as the republicans. Challenge them and you'll learn. 

Just go to your local Occupy encampment in a city with a democrat mayor to ask how it's going. Then get with the Iceland Model.
