Frances Fox Piven: ‘Time to scare the banks’

Ms. Piven is basking in her new refound fame. I have been picking up bits and pieces that she is in high demand on college campuses. Most everyone by now has heard of the Cloward-Piven theory which brough her to light. I wondered why Obama was so happy to take over the Student Loans from banks. It was one of his first crowning achievements. Now we hear from Piven that the push no doubt will be for massive non-payment, as well as attacks on banks. First a bit of a refresher of how she wishes to take the system down, then the video.

Ms Piven:

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs?” she writes. “After all, the injustice is apparent. Working people are losing their homes and their pensions while robber-baron CEOs report renewed profits and windfall bonuses. Shouldn’t the unemployed be on the march? Why aren’t they demanding enhanced safety net protections and big initiatives to generate jobs?”  Piven’s recent Nation editorial calling for a mass movement of the unemployed [“Mobilizing the Jobless,”

 Frances Fox Piven talks about the Occupy movement and disruption of the status quo, attacks from the Right, Glenn Beck, and her “honorable” response.

Frances Fox Piven breeches- not done with us yet

Just when you thought she must have given up the ghost, she rises again. I caught this video over the weekend, out there, rallying up the troops. Those out there who have been following the Conservative blogs, know this so called “uprising” was a planned orchestrated endeavor. So here she is, in all her glory making her appearance over the weekend. Sadly, most who are out there haven’t a clue that they are being played by the very people they may have a beef with. Although, it is not clear who it is for many.

FRANCES FOX PIVEN: “I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are here are really wonderful. I would do anything to help them.” (TV Show: “Democracy Now!”)

H.T Weasel Zippers

Back in January, we posted her M.O.. It is working out perfectly:

She’s considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, and finally create income equality. Collapse the system and create a new one. That‘s the simplified version of Frances Fox Piven’sphilosophy originally put forth in the pages of The Nationin the 60s.

In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation (”Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force. As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle. Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular in the 60s.

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs?” she writes. “After all, the injustice is apparent. Working people are losing their homes and their pensions while robber-baron CEOs report renewed profits and windfall bonuses. Shouldn’t the unemployed be on the march? Why aren’t they demanding enhanced safety net protections and big initiatives to generate jobs?” [Emphasis added]

“[B]efore people can mobilize for collective action, they have to develop a proud and angry identity and a set of claims that go with that identity,” she writes. “They have to go from being hurt and ashamed to being angry and indignant.”

And along with anger must come a denunciation of personal responsibility. Instead, workers must realize that others have put them in their current, uneasy situation: “[T]he out-of-work have to stop blaming themselves for their hard times and turn their anger on the bosses, the bureaucrats or the politicians who are in fact responsible.”

Only then, once their rage has been properly stoked, can the angry take action. And when they do, sh says, the “protesters need targets.” Read more here from the Blaze

United States own ‘Arab Spring’ coming our way

Questioning with Boldness “Days of Rage coming to Wall Street this September” has done an outstanding piece on what is headed our way. Recall Al Gore and his call to arms? That we needed our own Arab Spring?  I had done a number of posts earlier on the names and faces of those who were behind the unrest in the Middle East.  Questioning picks up the story with the same cast of folks and more:

It’s about the riots in London and how they connect to the future of America. Well, we now know that many of the rioters are striking out at to “show the rich that we can do what want.” Does anyone really need me to inform you of who those rioters are? Do you still think that this stuff won’t happen here?

Al Gore calls to action on Current TV with Keith Overbite-Did you know Gore is co-founder of Current TV? Trivia of the Day

Questioning with Boldness:

Coming to Wall Street this September… A website has been set up for a U.S. Day of Rage. With links connecting them to the European Revolution website, let the dots start falling into place. On the website for the European Revolution, they define their Mission as:

“We are an informative platform in English that aims to support the ongoing pro-democracy protests throughout Europe. We believe in alternative and independent media, net neutrality, real participatory democracy, active citizenship and the common ideals put forth by the first protests in Spain. We understand this revolution is made up of global citizens facing global issues, therefore, one of our goals is to create a net of volunteers and activists from around Europe to fight for our common goal.”

Bunkerville did an excellent exposé on the people behind the uprisings and specifically how it was tied directly to our State Department. In their report, the group identified as April 6 was created from an organized “summit” in Mexico City titled “Alliance of Youth Movements Summit”. This summit was even detailed on our own State Department website HERE.

However, the historic relevance of the “Revolutionary Youth Movement” doesn’t end in 2009 with our State Department and Hillary Clinton… it goes all the way back to the 1960s in America. From Wikipedia:

“The Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) was the section of Students for a Democratic Society that opposed the Worker Student Alliance of the Progressive Labor Party. Most of the national leadership of SDS joined the RYM in order to oppose PLP’s party line and what they alleged to be its attempted takeover of the SDS leadership structure, particularly at the 1969 SDS convention in Chicago.

Civil Unrest is Immniently possible -James Carville

I caught James Carville on Imus and found a vid of his comments regarding the Economy. It is in the last 15 seconds of the clip that he talks about Civil unrest. So looks like he is the town crier who is starting the drumbeat of “Civil unrest”. Clear to me, this is the agenda. Does Obama really want to create jobs? There is nothing in his actions or policies that indicate that. No to oil drilling, EPA regs out the kazoo. Bankrupting the country. I will go out on the limb. Soon, very soon the agitation will begin. Remember Ms Piven? Where is the Anger? The demonstrations?

Frances Fox Piven attacks Beck on her Cloward-Piven Theory

Piven & NPR Go Into Mega Spin to Attack Beck for Daring to Discussing Her Theory. Seems to me if you read her piece, Glenn is on top of things.

Ms Frances Fox Piven who wrote “Mobilizing the Jobless,” 

This fusillade was evidently set off by Piven’s recent Nation editorial calling for a mass movement of the unemployed [“Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17]. But Beck has had Piven in his cross-hairs for some time. In the past few years he’s featured Piven, along with her late husband, Richard Cloward, in at least twenty-eight broadcasts, all of which paint them as masterminds of an overarching left-wing plot called “the Cloward-Piven strategy,” which supposedly engineered the financial crisis of 2008, healthcare reform,Read more: The Nation Editorial

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs”?

Anarchy comes to Wisconsin – what will be next? ?

It is now official. Anarchy has begun in Wisconsin. When elected officials run out-of-state to avoid carrying out their duties, it is a sad state of affairs. When the news no longer focuses on the lawlessness that is happening, and prefers to advocate for insurrection, we have much to fear. Fox also has vids of Docs committing fraud and now this one. This is the test of our democracy. Ms Frances Fox Piven who wrote “Mobilizing the Jobless,” must be delighted:

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs”?
