Open Letter to Alex Jones Re: #OccupyWallStreet
(AmpredStatus.org) -- by David --
There are several things that I strongly disagree with you on, but I have always considered you a true patriot to the American people. That is, until you came out and dismissed #OccupyWallStreet as some Soros, Democratic Party front group. You came on air and claimed that you extensively researched the history of #OccupyWallStreet and concluded that it was an Astro-turf non-legit movement.
I take deep personal offense to your comments.
As someone whose reporting has been featured on your site and Prison Planets, I know that you did not really “extensively research” the origins of this movement. If you did, you would be familiar with my extensive reports on the origins of the movement, such as the most recent: “A Report from the Frontlines: The Long Road to #OccupyWallStreet and the Origins of the 99% Movement.”
If you actually do your homework, you will see that this movement partially grew out of Anonymous led Federal Reserve protests. In fact, this movement was given a major boost from my work with a regular guest on your show, Max Keiser. Have you heard of the Global Insurrection Against Banker Occupation? Have you heard of the Empire State Rebellion?
Yes! You have!
I have worked my ass off for over 3 years to make #OccupyWallStreet happen. In fact, over the past 3 years I have repeatedly tried to contact you to collaborate on Federal Reserve protest actions. Despite millions of online views on my reports, and being repeatedly featured on your site, not ONCE, have you acknowledged our efforts.
To demonstrate how little you understand what’s happening on the ground at #OccupyWallStreet. Let me make a few things clear to you.
1) Have you noticed that Liberty Park is closer to the NY Fed than the stock exchange? We purposely picked that park because of how close it was to the NY Fed.
2) Have you also failed to notice that we are occupying Federal Reserve banks. We’ve had people at the Chicago Fed since the start and have occupations in the works at ALL Fed locations.
3) Have you talked to the many listeners of your show that are at the #OccupyWallStreet protests. The “End The Fed” crowd is a significant part of the action.
Perhaps that’s just it. Perhaps you can’t accept that YOU were not the person to start this movement. Is that it? Is this all about vanity and ego? I don’t want to get too deep into personal attacks here. After you admit that you made a mistake, or perhaps a rush to judgment, I would gladly embrace you as an ally. After all, we are fighting against the same global financial oligarchy. At least that’s what I thought. Now I think you may be a divide and conquer pawn, or perhaps an ego-maniac. I’m still hoping you’re a legit patriot, it would be great if you support our fight against the global financial elite, but we will soon see...MORE...LINK
