The repression of dissent: The Occupy movement was (temporarily?) quashed by a coordinated BLOB of Police, FBI, and BANKS
Thanks to my friend, Myles Cummings, now in the UK, who steered me to an interesting article with very ominous overtones about the FBI coordination with banks for the crackdown upon the Occupy Movement activities.
I have written in earlier blog entries on this site about my philosophical support for the Occupy movement and its objectives, and about my distrust/disdain concerning the behavior of banks in the USA, but this article brings the conflict I feel to an entirely new level, and shows that we in the USA have reached an all time low point.
But wait, there’s more!
In doing further inquiry about the allegations and analysis set forth in the article, I found a different article on this topic by The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund
The Partnership article reinforces the Guardian article by describing a terrifying and coordinated network of para-police bodies intending to suppress Occupy dissent. It describes how the Department of Homeland Security, FBI, police, regional fusion center (a cocktail of police-governmental forces), and private-sector activity were completely merged into one another for the purpose of suppressing and eliminating dissent.
NOTE: Please re-read that sentence and ponder its significance.
An amorphous blob of police and investigative powers became a monstrous whole, one entity, one monstrous force bearing a single name, the Domestic Security Alliance Council–and this merged entity had one centrally planned, locally executed mission. Further, the Partnership article cites documents that show the cops and DHS working for and with BANKS to target, arrest, and politically disable peaceful American citizens.
For some horrible reason this coalition of police powers, investigative powers, and BANKS does not surprise me but it surely does reinforce my concerns that we have entered a new era of fascist repression and guarantees that we will face a lot of sadness in the future.
Banks are not our friend. I see banks springing up on every corner of Everywhere, USA. I am again reminded of many impoverished countries where I have lived or visited, with banks on every one of their street corners too. The more banks, the greater the poverty? It seems illogical but somehow it is becoming true. Everyone knew that already but it’s worth repeating. But when Banks have the forces of a police state working for them, under their direction in suppressing dissent, then WOW do we have a problem! That’s not a question, it’s a statement.
Aside from that, Happy New Year!
