On Wednesday, Frances Fox Piven was included in an AFL-CIO sponsored National Teach In where she spent a little over ten minutes speaking to students about past protests and their affect on the country, and then she spoke about the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement as one of those momentous revolutions that is gaining ground. Her comments include the usual social and economic justice rhetoric that we have come to expect from socialists and communists (including strengthening the unions, a ‘big public sector’, and free higher education for everyone), but her comment that, “The slogan of our movement should be ‘Occupy everything because it belongs to us“ is downright disturbing.
“Well maybe, it’s the moment when another great movement is being born. I think it is. I really do think it is. It began pointing to Wall Street with the occupation in Zuccotti Square. That was a good place to point the sword.” – Frances Fox Piven
This woman reminds me of the mullahs that used the Iranian students to overthrown the government and sent Iran into the inner circle of hell that they are now fighting and dying to be free of.

Hopefully, the numerous Ron Paul supporters can enlighten their brethren on the message of freedom, liberty, and peace that is sorely lacking when it comes to socialists and communists who believe that one must take from another even to the point of violence.
