Useful Idiots Belong to the Bourgeoisie

Axlerod says that the GOP doesn’t understand the OWS movement.

What is interesting is that Axlerod goes on to speak for them implying that he does understand them. What is it that we don’t understand exactly? Well, that these people are in it because “they want to get a fair shake”. A fair shake? Coming from the man who works for the administration who bailed out the major corporations and banks! We don’t get them? I’d beg to differ; I don’t think they get themselves.
This movement is, like most movements led by young people, based on ignorance and unintelligible excitement. Their anger, as has been evidenced again and again, is vented toward republicans (which is fair) but, by and large, not against the democrats. Why do those who, as Steven Crowder shows in the video below, receive more money from corporations and unions get a pass? The democrats have more crony-capitalism flowing through their political veins than Michael Jordan had ice.

It’s no wonder that these individuals are confused though – they are standing for a cause that they don’t necessarily disagree with. They aren’t much different from those who joined the counter culture movement late – it’s not counter culture if it becomes part of the culture. With the OWS crowds various news groups have found out that the “occupiers” aren’t all poor and helpless like they imply (by their filth and smell). Many of these people are what the hippies of the 60’s would have referred to as “born with a silver spoon in their mouth”. Grads (or attendees) of ivy league colleges, sons and daughters of millionaires, and then, of course, the obligatory millionaire celebrities that come out to preach their “for thee but not for me” sermons. For heaven’s sake, Bloomberg is “on their side”. REALLY?

One of the more famous individuals of the OWS crowd is the guy in the video below. This outstanding citizen, as it was found out by the NYT, is pretty emotional about a movement that seemingly works against the mechanisms that pay his way. Is this just rebellion or stupidity?

So what is this really about? Why are people like Pelosi, Bloomberg, George Soros, big unions, and major corporations supporting this movement? Why are people who have benefited from capitalism standing behind an anti-capitalist movement? The reason, in my view, is two-fold. First, they are saving face. This isn’t like Larry Craig’s anti-gay legislation and stances to keep his own closet door shut. Ben and Jerry’s, The North Face, Esprit, and many others were founded by people who are very wealthy capitalists who are happy about making their own money through this system, but apparently angry at anyone else who has.

The second prong to this silver relish fork (apparently rich people use this two pronged fork at their fancy parties) is that they benefit or have benefited from government’s relations with business. How is Nancy Pelosi so rich? It wouldn’t have ANYTHING to do with her involvement with government would it? The woman has never had a job outside of congress. She was one of those who voted for and supported the zero-down mortgages given to bad credit individuals and then after it led to a crash, she backed bailing out the BANKS rather than the individuals. Still, she is welcomed by the OWS crowd because she’s anti-capitalist?

Perhaps Pelosi is anti-capitalist in that she supports a heavy government hand and a socialist style spreading of wealth (for all of us anyway). The bourgeoisie always seem to float to the top. Those who wish to be on top tomorrow are using the righteous (though misguided) anger of those who saw billions taken from tax payers and given to corporations to attack those who weren’t responsible. If you are a business and want to be the Solyndras, AIGs, and GMs of yesterday; if you want to be in bed with the fed, then you had better be careful where you stand during this “movement”. The useful idiots are marching and the rich are paying them to do it.

    Great post RHM, these people are being used by those in power in an attempt to save Barack Obama’s reelection and they don’t even realize what is happening. How can they be on the side of the left AND bailouts when it was the left that did the bailing out? They have fallen for the “Republicans are for the rich” line and are engaged in a class warfare battle at the behest of the president.

    You’ve done an outstanding job of characterizing the vast majority of the “Occupiers”, RHM. One thing, however, that I think we need to keep our eye on is that in some of the demonstrations around the country there is a different element who are starting to use these demonstrations as a platform to air more legitimate grievances. These people are for the most part people who became unemployed and are feeling the cards are stacked against them. They are not looking for hand outs. They are looking for solutions to real problems. If the numbers of these people continue to grow, Republicans will want to reach out to this group and demonstrate that they have real solutions.

      That’s a good point. Judging by some of the signs I’ve seen at the OWS protests, it looks like Ron Paul and his supporters are doing that now.

    The hypocrisy is extremely frustrating. Why can’t they see it? They can’t see it because the media won’t show it to them and they aren’t really there for any reason other than being a part of some “historical” movement. It’s the same way that they were sold on Obama.

    What the hell does Axelrod know, as soon as his boy was out of the totally protected Chicago political arena his support has gone nowhere but down… seems like a loser to me

    If these kids are the future of America, then it’s time to emigrate to China, where a man can make a buck without government interference.

    They’re ignorance has made them weak and easily manipulated. They are a “stick it to the man” spoiled rotten group of angry kids that clearly lack a coherent message or clarity on the issues. As I said, the march would have been much more effective if they marched on “K” street in DC. At least they would have been aiming their message at the right target. Instead leftist organization are using the mob’s ignorance to advance their agenda. It pathetically sad.

    Excellent job, RHM! These people are ill-informed and they are being used by those who want to “transform” our nation into some type of socialist State.
