A History of Occupy Wall St. by One of the Founders: I am not Soros!Submitted by James_Madison_Lives on Mon, 10/17/2011 - 23:14
This is it, for anyone who really wants to know, an article by one of the actual founders of Occupy, journalist David DeGraw, who wrote a book called "The Economic Elite Vs. The People of the United States of America."
The book's blurb reads:
"David DeGraw's "groundbreaking, game-changing" investigation exposes the Economic Elite's war to eliminate the US middle class. Using shocking statistical evidence, DeGraw lays out a thoroughly researched case in convincing fashion. Naming names and connecting the dots, he explains how it all works and what we can do to fight back."
The whole book can be read for free here:
Below is an article by DeGraw lamenting all the "Soros" stuff going around, he entitles it tongue-in-cheek:
And here is a video interview of DeGrew on RT:
EXPOSED: David DeGraw Works For A Soros CIA-Obama-Socialist Front Group That Is Secretly Controlling the #OWS 99% Movement
by David DeGraw
That is my Onion-esque satirical headline to make light of what has become a very frustrating and infuriating experience. There are all sorts of wild conspiracy theories being spun about the #OWS 99% Movement and I have come under personal attack. I have repeatedly been confronted by irate people that accuse me of working for or with people like George Soros, Lyndon LaRouche, the FBI, CIA, US State Department and/or the Democratic Party and the Obama Administration. Let me be 100% clear here, all of these accusations are F.A.L.S.E.
First of all, the #OWS 99% Movement is a genuine leaderless
decentralized grassroots movement. In my opinion, it is built upon the hard work of hundreds of thousands of people who have taken it upon themselves to fight back against their own financial oppression and in defense of their family and country. As someone who has spent countless hours, days, weeks at Liberty Park, it is evident that people here come from all different walks of life and have all different political viewpoints. The uniting factor is that most of the people here realize that America has been taken over and is currently occupied by global financial interests. They have seized control of our government, economy and tax system, and have rigged our political process against hardworking Americans. People at Liberty Park, the 99%ers, are here to defend the United States against a global financial oligarchy. They are not here because they are the puppets of anyone. They are fighting back against economic tyranny PERIOD.
It is highly insulting when people make accusations that we are essentially puppets of other interests. Just come to Liberty Park and try telling someone who has been pepper-sprayed, beaten with police sticks and arrested that they are puppets of people like Soros and Obama. See how they respond to that. The people making these accusations and spinning these conspiracy theories haven’t even had enough respect to come to Liberty Park to talk directly with us.
To clear up any questions or misguided theories about my role and background within the movement, I have already written a long report, which I will repost below, that people making accusations against me have repeatedly ignored and have refused to reference. When people make unfounded accusations and blatantly ignore this history, I get the feeling that they are divide and conquer pawns.
