Occupy LA Speaker Calls for Violence/Socialism

Coming to a city near you.

From his speech:

“One of the speakers said the solution is nonviolent movement. No, my friend. I’ll give you two examples: French Revolution, and Indian so-called Revolution.

"Gandhi, Gandhi today is, with respect to all of you, Gandhi today is a tumor that the ruling class is using constantly to mislead us. French Revolution made fundamental transformation. But it was bloody.

"India, the result of Gandhi, is 600 million people living in maximum poverty.

"So, ultimately, the bourgeosie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.

"Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”

The Democratic Party officially supports this movement.

As long as the protests remain peaceful, they have every right to share their views. But, as this speaker makes clear, there are legitimate concerns that these protests will turn violent.

Right now, their message is somewhat chaotic and disjointed. The class warfare rhetoric coming out of both the White House and the Democratic party is focusing their energy on those with wealth. The injection of organized labor into the movement will add support to their numbers.

The protests have already moved to people's private homes. Now they are coming to a city near you.
