COMMENT: Longtime KKK and white supremacist leader David Duke has added his voice to the fascist and Nazi elements climbing on the Occupy Wall Street bandwagon.
A number of thoughts come to mind in this context. First, there are indications that far-right/fascist elements (cloaked as “progressives”) may have generated the impetus for the movement in the first place. (As I’ve said before, the vast majority of participants do not appear to manifest such sympathies.)
Note how the conservative source reporting this lumps Duke and the American Nazi Party in with Obama!
This may well be an attempt at alienating Jewish voters–a traditional element of the Democratic Party–from the Obama camp in anticipation of 2012.
Do not discount the possibility that fascist elements may either hijack the movement and/or discredit it, rather like the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center freaks hijacked and discredited any notion of serious investigation into the 9/11 attacks.
Might this entire phenomenon be a well-designed trap or agent-provacateur operation from the start?
Watch out for possible terrorist incidents linked to OWS and/or calls for a third party, that would serve the same purpose as the Naderoids in 2000.
In this context, one should not overlook the possibility that Duke is an intelligence officer. (See Miscellaneous Archive Show M52, “Is Duke a Spook?”)
EXCERPT: Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke has joined President Obama and the American Nazi Party in supporting the Occupy Wall Street protests.
“I cheer the men and women on the streets condemning the international banks that hold America financially hostage. These Wall Street banks are not the product of free enterprise; they are the product of crime,” Duke said in a video supporting the protests.
CNS News reports that Duke “repeatedly attacks what he refers to as “Zionist bankers” such as Ben “Shalom” Bernanke,” and claims that while many have lost up to half of their savings, the “Zionist owners of the predatory banks made more shekels.”
Duke also decries what he calls the “Zionist media and their paid whores,” and attacks Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly. He states his utter hatred for New York, calling it the “real center of Zionist globalism.” . . .
