    No Lech Walesa for Occupy Wall Street

    No Lech Walesa for Occupy Wall Street

    Oh my how the supporters of Occupy Wall Street cheered when Lech Walesa, hero of the fight against communism in Poland, announced that he would fly to New York to support the Occupy Wall Street movement.

    Brent Budowsky at The Hill was ecstatic:

    Great news for the real America. One of history’s great leaders for  jobs, workers and freedom is now supporting the Occupy Wall Street  protest. Lech Walesa has now weighed in, big time, for the good guys.

    Just two days ago Budowsky wrote at HuffPo that Walesa’s participation was a sign that OWS was on the verge of becoming a mass movement, 50 Million Will March:

    The Occupy Wall Street movement is the authentic heir to John Hancock and Sam Adams, and to historic movements from suffragettes championing the rights of women to Solidarity and Lech Walesa, who supports Occupy Wall Street, championing the rights of workers.

    At the Obama-adoring Esquire, Charles Pierce had a thrill run up his leg:

    The fact that Lech Walesa apparently is planning to come to New York to visit the Occupy site is  just about the coolest thing that’s happened since the movement’s reach began  to spread.

    And I could go on an on.

    Admittedly, I could not understand how Walesa would march in support of a movement which openly touted the virtues of socialism and communism, and tolerated anti-Semitic signs and rhetoric even if the movement itself was not anti-Semitic.

    Turns out Walesa didn’t really know about Occupy Wall Street, and now that he does, he’s not going to be marching with them:

    When Walesa’s comments hit the AP wire last week, my team immediately reached out to our Polish contacts.  We made the point that the political themes of Occupy Wall Street may have started out with some of the principles that we share, but OWS themes were rapidly being morphed into anti-freedom and anti-liberty messages.  At the core is the want for a big, powerful central government to dominate the lives of individual citizens.

    Using biggovernment.com plus other news sources, rapidly we painted an accurate picture of the groups training, leading, and organizing the “movement.” The movement is organized by anarchists, Code Pink, the American Communist movement, jihadists, anti-Israel, socialist, and anti- free enterprise interests. OWS folks are politically to the left of President Barack Obama.

    At the Lech Walesa Institute Foundation in Warsaw, they were thankful to receive this information.

    Based on our discussion and intervention, President Walesa is not going to get involved with the OWS.  He is not comfortable with the “organizations” behind the movement.  It was not a difficult discussion.

    Heartbreak.

    Maybe we can invest in a truck full of Kleenex for those people, after such a disappointment…

    Nah!

    “I believe Nixon was impeached and removed for less.”

    Nixon was neither impeached nor removed. He resigned after emplacing as VP a liberal Republican caretaker amenable to Sam Ervin and other democrats.

    There is no peace possible between progressives/communists and jihadis on the one hand and the balance of USA residents on the other. One of those groups has to win and the other lose. It’s a civil war from which neither side will back down and during the course of which one side has to be defeated. Pity, but that’s the fact. The ballot box is unable to decide the issue because it is controlled by one side, progressives/communists/jihadis.

    Lech Walesa knows and sees hard line radical leftist Socialist-Marxists, when he sees one.. And these OWS useful idiots, are the same radical hard line leftist Socialist-Marxists, that controlled and ran the Soviet Union, and all of Eastern Europe, for 45 years.. until he, the Polish People, and the rest of the Eastern European people, who decided with the help of President Ronald Reagan in the 1980’s, have had enough of the oppressive tyrannical regimes.

    Why do you think all the Russians, and the rest Eastern Europeans immigrating to America, are all registered Republicans, and not Democrats.. because they know and see the very same Tyrannical and oppressive Socialist-Marxists, they escaped from, when they see it. !!
