This is a protest that happened a couple days ago in Phoenix but it’s part of a, supposedly, nationwide protest in which Occupiers focus on ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. You can read background on the group here. Essentially they’re a bunch of conservative state legislators that get together to push federalism and free markets. Sounds like the Occupiers have some kangaroo trials in mind for ALEC members followed by re-education via hard labor.
All ALEC CEO’s will do manual labor rebuilding any and all ecosystems the corporations have destroyed. They will serve one month for every dollar spent on lobbying during their tenure.
Haven’t we seen this sort of thing play out before in other communist nations? I think we have in China, in Cambodia, in North Korea and in Russia. But of course no one in the MSM will report on the extremist nature of this movement. They won’t even dare to call these folks anti-capitalist. That needs to change.
