One-Percent Progressives Honor the 99 Percent

“Thanks for the free booze” was the cry from the audience, as members of Occupy Wall Street were given the “Paul Wellstone Citizen Leadership Award” on Monday night at the “Take Back the American Dream” conference. Several “occupiers” made it clear they were happy to be recognized at the Awards Gala Dinner, but it was unclear how they got into the event, since most tickets were $225 each. Once in and seated, however, they had the choice of red or white wine and apparently imbibed.

Paul Wellstone is the former liberal Democratic Senator from Minnesota who was killed in a plane crash that some progressives suspect was an assassination engineered by right-wingers or the CIA.

It didn’t seem to occur to the progressives at the fancy dinner that they were living like the one percent while honoring the 99 percent. I have already written about how they attacked Wall Street but ignored liberals and Democrats like George Soros and Jon Corzine who engage in questionable financial shenanigans.

The conference featured denunciations of Republican strategist Karl Rove for his involvement in a Super PAC targeting Obama for defeat. But the liberals have their own Super PAC associated with the telephone service company CREDO that is designed to “Take down the Tea Party Ten.” Becky Bond, President of CREDO Super PAC, gave a seminar on how to defeat conservative members of Congress by labeling them as racist, crazy, corrupt, or anti-woman.

Jarvis Tyner and Joelle Fishman of the Communist Party were officially registered for the event and participated in various sessions as members of the audience. Tyner introduced himself during one session as being from the CPUSA and warned his fellow progressives against the dangers of racism and anti-communism. He was followed by another member of the audience saying it was time for progressives to openly declare that capitalism had to go.

A progressive from Vermont suggested a Google search of the name “Mitt Romney” with the word “psychopath” in order to discover the truth about the presumed Republican presidential nominee.

Despite all of this, conservatives and Republicans are the ones who get labeled as politically extreme by the major media…

…The progressives, of course, have their own billionaires, including George Soros, the hedge fund operator, and Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft. Melissa Bradley of Tides spoke to me about the billions being spent by Soros and Gates and how the Soros children are following in their father’s footsteps. It is all being done for the purpose of “social good,” she told me with a smile…
