Occupy Wall Street has tried to paint themselves as a ‘grassroots’ movement of the 99%. However it’s become increasingly clear that they have become nothing more than a union movement – the 12% of this country. Tonight an organization called www.unitedNY.org sponsored an event at Foley Square in New York City. UnitedNY.org claims to be ‘Fighting for a city that works for all’ with no links on their site (what can been seen of it) that tells people who they REALLY are – the SEIU. From their ‘About Us’ page:
About United NYWe’re standing up for a vision of New York City where everyone, not just a privileged few, has the opportunity to thrive and build a secure, dignified life for themselves and their families. Corporations, big banks and Wall Street are making billions in profits. They should be investing in good jobs and paying their fair share in taxes so we can stop the cuts to education, healthcare, public transportation and other vital city services.
Their facebook page claims they are a Community Organization – never mentions they are the SEIU:
Since some in the OWS claim to be against money in politics, one would find it strange that they would bed with unions since unions spend billions in politicking and do exactly the same thing as what OWS claims corporations do. It was also strange to hear the OWS chanting well known union chants over and over (‘This is what Democracy looks like’ etc etc). Most people just thought unions jumped on the bandwagon – not true. UnitedNY.org domain was created in APRIL 2011:
The following shows the IP Address of the UnitedNY.org website:
The following then links the IP addy to the SEIU in Washington D.C.:
So much for Occupy Wall Street being grassroots. The Occupiers who had no clue about the union involvment are nothing but ‘useful idiots’ for unions and the far left wing. The reason there was money and ‘tech guys’ to set up local phone lines and websites was because OWS is NOT a grassroots movement. It’s a sham. Occupy Wall Street isn’t about the 99%. It’s about the 12% that are UNION in this country. Period.
