FOX PIVEN’S CHILLING FUTURE PREDICTIONS: CALLS FOR MASSIVE UNION STRIKES TO ‘FORCE GOVERNMENT TO RESTORE TAXATION ON THE RICH

According to Frances Fox Piven’s predictions last September:

Professor Piven Predictions: Half true…for now.
The government would begin to “force” higher taxation on the rich
The government will “force” strict regulation on finance
Workers will unite to make “New Deal” style “strikes.”
The strikes should be “massive” and involve millions of non-Union workers.
Unions should lead these strikes, because they have overcome “racism & sexism.”
In a first-time address to the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Union, radical professor Frances Fox Piven made some startling, yet predictable calls for unions to engage in social unrest. In light of the George Soros Occupy movement and legislation such as the Buffett Rule, this might seem to be old news. However, the speech was given last September, before any of these radical social ideas collided with the mainstream. What’s left is an apt prediction for things that did happen (demonetization of the rich, violent class warfare) and a dark foreshadowing of what the future may hold (crippling strikes, a workers revolution).

The controversial NYU professor began by pinning down Voter ID laws as discriminatory.

“Thirty state legislators – legislatures – the states that were lost in the election of 2010 are now considering legislation to make it harder to vote for poorer people, for younger people, for minority people. They want to require photo ID cards for registration, voter registration, for actually casting the vote.”

The Occupy enthusiast continued by demanding that unions begin to “force” governments into an arch-progressive agenda.

“Poverty is really expanding very, very rapidly and unions, union membership, and treasuries continue to decline. So the question that confronts us, everyone in this room – me too, I’m a union member – is how to halt and reverse this assault. How to force government to become a job creating engine, how to force government to restore taxation on the rich – they should pay their share – how to force government to invest in infrastructure, how force government to re-regulate finance, and how to restore the slices that have been taken from the social programs.”

FRANCES FOX PIVEN’S BRINGS COOKIES AND GIVES AN AWKWARD CALL-AND-RESPONSE SPEECH TO WALL ST. PROTESTERS

by  Jonathon M. Seidl

The videos below of Frances Fox Piven are painful — for many reasons.

First, the message is frustrating. They show Piven calling for a “popular uprising” and calling Wall St. bankers “thieves,“ ”cannibals,“ and the ”big problem.”

Second, the way it is delivered might be compared to fingernails on the chalkboard. See, it’s become popular for the Occupy Wall St. protesters to mimic and repeat everything their speakers say. Think of it like that annoying game of “shadow” you and your friends used to play as kids. And Piven never seems to get the entire grasp of it, or at least isn’t that great at playing along.

First, here’s Piven calling for a “popular uprising” on Friday:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtNVKg6lxnE&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]

“I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are here are really wonderful. I would do anything to help them.”
And this is the awkward call-and-response speech she delivered the same night, where the protesters copy everything she says:

PAY ATTENTION TO THEIR OWN WORDS: SOROS, PIVEN AND SEIU ARE WORKING TO DESTROY AMERICAS FINANCIAL SYSTEM & CREATE A REVOLUTION

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBiJ6CwFUyo&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]

How can anyone honestly say that Obama is not THE most radical, far-Left, anti-American president that America has ever had? Look at who he surrounds himself with…. people who talk about crashing the system, revolutions, calling dictators their heroes.

 

FRANCES FOX PIVEN TURNS TO UK PAPER TO LAUNCH BROADSIDE ATTACK ON BECK

Regular viewers of the Glenn Beck program on Fox News Channel know the name Frances Fox-Piven. She is the surviving half of oft-discussed Cloward and Piven, and currently a professor at City University of New York. After many months of silence, Fox-Piven has suddenly come forward and is addressing the statements made by Beck, trying to diminish his theories. On Tuesday Fox-Piven used a British newspaper to attack the Fox News host and his audience, accusing them (and many Americans) of being racist and too dumb to understand how their government works stating;
“The strange stories that Glenn Beck creates with his chalkboard gain traction with Americans, who are made anxious by the large changes that have overtaken the United States, including the election of a black president and the increasing racial diversity of the population, deindustrialisation and the decline of American power abroad, as well as cultural changes in sexual and family norms.”
“Strange stories that Glenn Beck creates?” He is using your own words.
Mrs. Fox-Piven also wrote on the ability of the common man to comprehend what their government is doing;
“In reflection, contemporary government policy is also extraordinarily complicated and difficult to decipher. Healthcare legislative proposals run to many hundreds of pages, and the texts of the regulations to implement them are even longer. And none of this can be understood without a great deal of information about existing healthcare arrangements.”
Last year Congress worked very hard to pass rules for the banking and credit industry that would make their agreements with consumers simpler and easy to understand. Why can’t the same be done for the “extraordinarily complicated and difficult to decipher” legislation like the Healthcare law (over 2000 pages) or the almost 70,000 pages of the tax code?
Beck has frequently quoted from a 45 year old magazine article from Cloward and Piven, detailing in their own words, a plan to overwhelm the American Capitalist system and replace it with one that redistributes the wealth and basically guarantees all citizens an annual income from the government. Oddly enough, their 1966 plan for redistribution was basically a “no questions asked” and “no qualifications required” type of program where the guaranteed government-paid annual income must contain no demands on the recipients as it relates to potentially elevating oneself from poverty;
the right to income must be guaranteed, or the oppression of the welfare poor will not be eliminated. Because benefits are conditional under the present public welfare system, submission to arbitrary governmental power is regularly made the price of sustenance. People have been coerced into attending literacy classes or participating in medical or vocational rehabilitation regimes, on pain of having their benefits terminated.
What kind of horrific government would expect a citizen receiving benefits to learn how to read and write or, God forbid, learn a skill that might lead that person out of poverty and into self-reliance and possibly prosperity?
Last month, Mrs. Fox-Piven stepped back into the public eye, writing another article that garnered significant Beck attention, the second paragraph of the January 10th story titled, “Mobilizing The Jobless,” also referenced on the Glenn Beck Show, contained the following:
So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs? After all, the injustice is apparent. Working people are losing their homes and their pensions while robber-baron CEOs report renewed profits and windfall bonuses. Shouldn’t the unemployed be on the march?

THE UGLY COMMUNIST WITCH APEARS AGAIN – FRANCIS FOX PRIVEN

GLOBALIZATION DESTRUCTION: PIVEN GLEEFULLY ‘HOPES’ AND EXPLAINS HOW COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA CAN SHUT DOWN USA AND BRING REVOLUTIONARY TRANSFORMATION

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hhlg-2VLt4&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]

This is Basic Globalization Revolution Theory:
Our computers, information technology, energy, even some food is all imported from authoritarian nations whose workers make less than dollars a day . Like the Romans who, at the end of their reign, had three slaves for every citizen, the United States, because of globalization, is completely dependant on slave labor. It would only take organized strikes (shut downs) from a small coalition of nations led for example by China to bring us to our knees.

FRANCES FOX PIVEN RINGS IN THE NEW YEAR BY CALLING FOR VIOLENT REVOLUTION

THE EVIL GOD MOTHER OF THE LEFT, MARKISM,SOCIALISM AND OBAMA GOVERNMENT MENTOR RAISES HER UGLY HEAD AGAIN.

She’s also considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, and finally create income equality. Collapse the system and create a new one. That‘s the simplified version of Frances Fox Piven’s philosophy originally put forth in the pages of The Nation in the 60s.

Now, as the new year ball drops, Piven is at it again, ringing in 2011 with renewed calls for revolution.

In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation (”Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force. As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle. Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular in the 60s.

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs?” she writes. “After all, the injustice is apparent. Working people are losing their homes and their pensions while robber-baron CEOs report renewed profits and windfall bonuses. Shouldn’t the unemployed be on the march? Why aren’t they demanding enhanced safety net protections and big initiatives to generate jobs?” [Emphasis added]

Those are the questions that frame what can best be called a roadmap for revolution. And it’s not long before those questions give way to directions. The first instruction: get angry.

“[B]efore people can mobilize for collective action, they have to develop a proud and angry identity and a set of claims that go with that identity,” she writes. “They have to go from being hurt and ashamed to being angry and indignant.”

And along with anger must come a denunciation of personal responsibility. Instead, workers must realize that others have put them in their current, uneasy situation: “[T]he out-of-work have to stop blaming themselves for their hard times and turn their anger on the bosses, the bureaucrats or the politicians who are in fact responsible.”

Only then, once their rage has been properly stoked, can the angry take action. And when they do, sh says, the “protesters need targets.”

For Piven, the best “targets” are the people or organizations “capable of making some kind of response to angry demands.” Regular demands, notice, just won’t do. No, people must be fired up and not easily deterred. Angry and not quickly placated. It’s a concoction Piven has seen recently in other countries — countries such as England and Greece, which she uses as models for American unrest:

An effective movement of the unemployed will have to look something like the strikes and riots that have spread across Greece in response to the austerity measures forced on the Greek government by the European Union, or like the student protests that recently spread with lightning speed across England in response to the prospect of greatly increased school fees. [Emphasis added]

What exactly do those strikes and riots look like? They’re violent and bloody, like this one in Greece, where rioters firebombed police and beat bloody a former government official:

In England they look like this, where a mob of angry students attacked the future British King and his wife and shouted “Off with their heads!” while jabbing the Duchess with a stick:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvOJn2LUPy4&feature=player_embedded

“What she is calling for is nothing less than the chaos and violence engulfing Europe,” writes Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Ron Radosh on his blog. “Disgruntled leftist unionists, students who expect an education without cost, and citizens of social-democratic states cannot accept that the old terms of the social contract they thought would last forever have worn out their welcome. The European welfare-state governments can no longer function with the kind of social programs that now far exceed their nation’s budgets and hence are moving their countries to the precipice of total collapse.”

But violence has always been Piven’s preferred method of collapse. In 2004, she admitted as much, saying that violence is condoned as long as it is part of a grand plan:

What may be new is the brazen way in which Piven is now making her intentions known. No longer do her and people like her have to hide in the shadows. Now, they feel comfortable enough with the political climate to espouse their views openly, freely, unabashedly. It’s a phenomenon Radosh believes has to do with the current administration: leftists see a renewed opportunity now that Obama is in power.

Now, as President Barack Obama is beginning the mid-point of his first and possibly only term in office, the Left is again trying to advance a new form of the old strategy,” he writes. And “as our national economy and many state and city budgets again are at the breaking point,” he adds, “Frances Fox Piven has issued a new call to repeat and build upon the ruinous strategies that she and her late husband advanced decades ago.”

In 1966 when Cloward and Piven published their first manifesto in The Nation, Americans were spell bound — especially poorer Americans who sucked up the couple’s call like a dying desert cactus. The New Republic’s John McWhorter writes:

But when Piven and Cloward published a manifesto in The Nation, there were 30,000 reprint requests. One thousand neighborhood service centers nationwide encouraged people to go on welfare who would not have otherwise. In the ’60s, one-third of the people whose incomes made them eligible for AFDC were on the rolls. By 1971, 90 percent were.

An old strategy for a new year. Let‘s hope it doesn’t have the same effect.
