Why did Occupy San Francisco allow Democrat Ed Lee to give a campaign speech at its general assembly? Who are you people? Don't you know the Democrats and Republicans are the twin capitalist parties of war and fascism and the only parties worth voting for are Peace & Freedom and the Green Parties? Did you do anything this Columbus Genocide weekend to stop the military recruiting at Fisherman's Wharf? The capitalist class makes its greatest profits in war, particiularly in oil profits and munitions, with the military being the biggest user of oil. Did you protest the Navy's Blue Death flights over a city, all illegal? I have seen one sign at a movie of a New York Occupy demo supporting the police! Don't you know the police are the armed thugs of the capitalist class whose primary purpose is to terrorize the workingclass so we do not organize for decent wages, hours and working conditions? Don't you know that the primary goal of this backward bankrupt society is maximization of profit and that can only end with labor organizing so we have a general strike to get rid of the profit motive? You cannot play the charity game forever. What do you intend to do to get rid of capitalism, the cause of all our grief?
