Be Wary Of The Democratic Wing Of The Protest Movement


Popular Resistance has the article Be Wary Of The Democratic Wing Of The Protest Movement.

The self-labeled Progressive Movement that has arisen over the past decade is primarily one big propaganda campaign serving the political interests of the the Democratic Party’s richest one-percent who created it. The funders and owners of the Progressive Movement get richer and richer off Wall Street and the corporate system. But they happen to be Democrats, cultural and social liberals who can’t stomach Republican policies, and so after bruising electoral defeats a decade ago they decided to buy a movement, one just like the Republicans, a copy.

And we laughed at how the Tea Party followers were had by the Koch brothers. Some of us even entertained the possibility that it could happen to us, but I, for one, dismissed it.

I have since stopped supporting MoveOn.org, OFA, and Van Jones without even realizing the information in this article. I could recognize that these organizations no longer had interests that aligned with mine, but until I read this article, I didn’t quite understand the full reason for the divergence of interests. I even knew that George Soros was a backer of Hillary Clinton, but I still didn’t fully get it.

Thanks to Helicia Forest-Ussach for pointing me to this article via her Facebook posts.
