    Occupy Wall Street is becoming mired in an ideological civil war just as it seeks to reestablish itself as a dominant force in American political discourse and openly pushes for a crippling general strike on May 1st.


    What’s behind the various Occupy Wall Street (OWS) factions engaging in online squabbles and tweet battles? Believe it or not, Barack Obama. Within the movement, there are those who believe the established Left is trying to co-opt OWS to get President Barack Obama reelected. And it’s causing quite the stir.


    In fact, Adbusters — a prominent force in the movement — is calling it a “Battle for the Soul of Occupy.” It is railing against groups like Moveon.org for seeking to piggyback on the enthusiasm and digital organization of the Occupiers to ensure the status quo in the federal government continues for four more years.


    But the Occupiers aren’t taking this usurpation lightly. Since Adbusters wrote an article decrying the phenomenon, Occupiers have been rallying to the meme of “Jump, jump, jump over the body of the old dead left.”


    Keep reading…


    HAHAHA
    Rest In Peace America

    How appropriate, May 1st the day that communism was born.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    If they mean laughing stock yea , if they mean relevance, HHAHAHA
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    I thought for sure their civil war would be over the whole "soap vs deodorant" issue.

    That would be like Muslim Brotherhood members duking it out with Orthodox Jews over whether it was better to eat your bacon before or after slamming down three shots of whiskey.

    Since they've never heard of either, it wouldn't be a matter of contention. A

    We're allowed whiskey. It's pork that's prohibited to Jews and Muslims and to Catholic clergy.

    BTW, the blog entry is hysterical:

    Battle for the Soul of Occupy


    Jump, jump, jump over the dead body of the old left!

    Alright you jammers, occupiers and Springtime dreamers,
    First they silenced our uprising with a media blackout… then they smashed our encampments with midnight paramilitary raids… and now they’re threatening to neutralize our insurgency with an insidious campaign of donor money and co-optation. This counter-strategy worked to kill off the Tea Party’s outrage and turn it into a puppet of the Republican Party. Will the same happen with Occupy Wall Street? Will our insurgency turn into the Democrats’ Tea Party pet?
    It’s up to you to decide if our movement goes the way of Paris ’68, the dust bin of could-have-been-insurrections, or something more daring, more inspiring, something not yet dreamed.
    Will you allow Occupy to become a project of the old left, the same cabal of old world thinkers who have blunted the possibility of revolution for decades? Will you allow MoveOn, The Nation and Ben & Jerry to put the brakes on our Spring Offensive and turn our struggle into a “99% Spring” reelection campaign for President Obama?
    We are now in a battle for the soul of Occupy… a fight to the finish between the impotent old left and the new vibrant, horizontal left who launched Occupy Wall Street from the bottom-up and who dreams of real democracy and another world.
    Whatever you do, don’t allow our revolutionary struggle to fizzle out into another lefty whine and clicktivist campaign like has happened so many times in the past. Let’s Occupy the clicktivists and crash the MoveOn party. Let’s #DEFENDOCCUPY and stop the derailment of our movement that looms ahead.
    for the wild,
    Culture Jammers HQ
    Oh, the sheer horror of the insidious campaign of donor money! ROFLOL!!!

    My bad, I picked up somewhere that the ultras were down on distilled spirits. Possibly in Israel back in my company-grade days, because every other damned thing in the world seemed to piss them off (And twice on Saturdays, of course).
