Tell -- -- when done a Wall Street to talk to the protesters as beacon and discover the group the big fans of marks.
Hallmarks that it's not what was the -- that and retreat Garcia now Richard Bartok crowd generally -- -- -- -- Charlie's you're -- -- article post yesterday -- yeah spelled out a lot of what's with a lot who are thinking.
Is going this and I worked out the Saturday and I said you know I'm gonna do little reporting.
And so I went down to the Wall Street protests because we've been talking about it writing that it was and this is a big Wall Street story right now.
The real story is I think.
So who are these folks and what they believe it is their core centralize.
Sort of basic belief that they have other than that they -- bankers because you know everybody.
And it is bolstering.
It's not a liberal conservative issue.
And when I went -- I was pretty surprised because you remember early reports were that this was delightful experience Tea Party people in there.
Also equally capital -- and -- the bailout of the banks.
What you have seen what you see down there believes in cutting -- which is ground zero for for this movement.
Is that it's basically.
The epicenter I believe of the more of the of the Communist movement Marxist what was Marxist movement there is here in New York City.
You can't step fight -- in that place without seeing a flag of shoe repair.
You know people -- each other comrades.
And being you know -- proselytize to the -- take literature and that's one of the things subdued.
And me that written by another -- and they -- they go like that a little research on the U.
Apparently some sort of artists.
That was supposed to for graffiti -- in the Bronx.
The game of capitalism breeds dishonest man.
I got this other wonderful little.
Rap sheet from the from the -- the revolutionary party they'll openly talks about you know we need to.
A conduct revolution you know forget about ever ever ever compromising.
As the eight AFL CIO -- -- but the associated they think -- too.
We need revolution that I've picked up this which this is probably.
The worst dollar I've ever spent -- my life was to buy this wonderful piece of it -- this wonderful.
Propaganda -- biblical justice.
There's an interesting story here.
Where they quotes.
What they said Marx was right -- turn to page five.
And it's quoted.
Story over -- Who made an economist the economist they call me an influential business it comes I was saying he's not half as influential as they think He is.
I -- -- they're basically -- -- maybe you may remember He made that remark that you know the markets are working for perfectly these days and yes Karl Marx was right.
Kind of a fatuous stupid statement coming from being among many others come from -- And this is what you see when you go down there it is.
It is the Communist manifesto.
With a lot of that in modern day -- yes.
You know listen here's the thing these kids when when they go to school lot of lot of them with our students a lot of people thought they didn't understand that they don't know what they're doing yes there.
Dear their viewpoints and do it their knowledge of the financial collapse and Wall Street is pretty -- no doubt about that.
But they do have an understanding of identity part politics.
Of collective -- Of marxism and base it's totally support that part of this point and I'll tell -- this is where it -- scary.
The there is a unifying theme down there and it's this notion of revolution.
Now why is that scary I don't think there's going to be Communist revolution tomorrow.
But there could be more violent protests from these folks because that's how they believe change should be enacted -- violence to protest to get him to -- basically.
You know making it very difficult to live in the city and I think.
You know one of the I think the injustices.
Going on is that the mainstream media and some of my colleagues are actually sit around saying what how great these guys -- And that they're legitimate and people like -- Vikram -- goes out.
And basically supports and He said nice things about he's a C guild of a Citigroup saying nice things I mean my view is the compared to the supporting a socialist revolution if you say nice things about.
The time we're we're just about at time I do I have to ask you this though the President Obama and his support but we're do you think that goes here here and here's what I would say and I and I make this point in New York Post column today.
There is a clearly debated -- President Obama you know -- see some merit in socialist policies socialist policies know that yet of -- type of the federal policies that are done in Europe.
If you keep supporting these folks and we find out more more exactly where they come from and we will what they believe in.
There will be a debate about whether.
He sees some merit in marks I mean no doubt because these they'd be the underlying ideology there is incredibly radical.
And it's it's not about freedom but I don't out -- about marxism and collected is and it's not about success because as we know marxism has failed at Fraser -- trade left they want yeah.
-- Charlie thank you a great article --
