Marxist ‘Occupy DC’ Protesters Hold Anti-Capitalist Rally at Chamber of Commerce:

Marxists, union officials, Code Pink leaders, and far left loons held a rally against capitalism today at the Chamber of Commerce Headquarters in Washington DC. The protesters reportedly said they want jobs – just not the kind of jobs created by Chamber of Commerce members in a free society.

That’s Marxist Medea Benjamin from Code Pink speaking to the protesters from the stage.

“Make the rich pay their fair share is an Obama campaign slogan, and his new tax rule won’t even affect the rich

Many people have rightly pointed out that the Occupy Wall Street protesters are a diverse bunch with different beliefs, and as such have no single set list of demands. However, the one message that has been embraced by the majority of demonstrators is to “make the rich pay their fair share,” which has also been a consistently repeated talking point out of the Obama White House.

The problem with the so-called “Buffett tax rule,” or making the rich “pay their fair share,” which both the Obama administration and OWS protesters have jointly advocated, is that it will do nothing to “make the rich pay their fair share,” and everything to bankrupt middle class businesses, the lifeblood of the American economy.

As the Wall Street Journal reported, the Buffett tax rule, (In fact a tax ‘Dodge’), which White House Spokesman Jim Carney made it clear the Obama administration was behind, would mostly impact the middle class, not Warren Buffett or Wall Street corporations.

“Roughly 90% of the tax filers who would pay more under Mr. Obama’s plan aren’t millionaires, and 99.99% aren’t billionaires,” pointed out the WSJ analysis.

An excellent article by Chuck Norris highlights numerous different examples of where “pay their fair share” has become a White House talking point:

From a Sept. 19, 2011, press statement from the White House’s Office of the Secretary concerning the “Fact Sheet: Living Within Our Means and Investing in the Future – The President’s Plan for Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction”: “… asking the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to pay their fair share. …”

From a Sept. 20, 2011, White House Rural Council blog post, titled, “Lessons from the Farm to Strengthen America,” written by Tom Vilsack, secretary of agriculture: “For agriculture, the plan focuses on what the President and I believe is one of the most pressing challenges facing producers right now … safety net and creating a better market for our agricultural goods. And it sets us on a path to compete by asking everyone to pay their fair share. …”

From an Aug. 4, 2011, post on the White House blog, titled, “All about the so-called ‘Super Committee’” and created by Jon Carson, who is deputy assistant to president and director of the White House Office of Public Engagement: “… asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share.”

From the July 9, 2011, “Statement from White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer on Budget Negotiations”: “We need a balanced approach that asks the very wealthiest and special interests to pay their fair share as well, and we believe the American people agree.”

Police Uses Pepper Spray, Night Sticks against Protesters

Protests on Wall Street turned violent Wednesday evening when police clashed with demonstrators marching through Lower Manhattan in the largest show of strength yet for the burgeoning Occupy Wall Street movement against corporations and financial institutions.

Police said late Wednesday that 28 people were arrested during the march, mostly for disorderly conduct, the New York Post reports. One police officer suffered minor injuries after being knocked off a scooter, according to the newspaper.

Local protests against corporate America are planned in New Jersey on Thursday as a show of solidarity with demonstrations that started last month outside the New York Stock Exchange.

Rallies are planned at the Statehouse in Trenton and in Jersey City. Protesters are expected to call for an end of corporate control of government, starting at 2 p.m.

Unions lent their muscle to the rallies against Wall Street and economic inequality Wednesday, fueling speculation about how long the camp-out in lower Manhattan — and related demonstrations around the country — will continue.

Thousands of protesters, including many in union T-shirts, filled lower Manhattan’s Foley Square on Wednesday and then marched to Zuccotti Park. Labor leaders say they will continue to support the protests, both with manpower and donations of goods and services.

“The great thing about Occupy Wall Street is that they have brought the focus of the entire country on the middle class majority,” said George Aldro, 62, a member of Local 2325 of the United Auto Workers, as he carried the union’s blue flag over his shoulder through lower Manhattan.

“We’re in it together, and we’re in it for the long haul.”
