In case you harbored any lingering doubts regarding their motivations, a former public employee union boss who now is an organizer for the “grass-roots” Occupy crowd stated yesterday – on video – their exact intentions:
Former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash, revealing his political goals: overthrowing capitalism in the United States and instituting a communist government.
“Progressive labor is a revolutionary communist organization,” Golash said during an Occupy DC “People’s Assembly” on August 19.
“Its objective,” he added, “is to make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism.”
Unsurprising, though the level of stupidity evidenced by Golash is of more than passing interest; perhaps he was caught up in the excitement of the event and assumed that all in attendance were his “comrades”.
