Default Occupy L.A. Speaker: (note the accent) ‘Bourgeoisie Won’t Go Without Violent Means’!

The “Occupy” movement continues to spread across America. Since its inception on September 17, there has been no shortage of bizarre video, complimenting the rhetoric and head-scratching confusion surrounding what, exactly, the protesters are seeking.

In yet another strange video, a speaker at the Occupy L.A. appears to be calling for violence as a means to achieving the protesters’ objectives. While speaking to the crowd, the individual depicted in the clip praised the French Revolution, called Gandhi a tumor, heralded socialism and revolution and said that “the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means.”

Blogger Zombie provides a complete transcript of the rallying cry:

“One of the speakers said the solution is nonviolent movement. No, my friend. I’ll give you two examples: French Revolution, and Indian so-called Revolution.

Gandhi, Gandhi today is, with respect to all of you, Gandhi today is a tumor that the ruling class is using constantly to mislead us. French Revolution made fundamental transformation. But it was bloody.

India, the result of Gandhi, is 600 million people living in maximum poverty.

So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.

Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”

Watch the video for yourself, and listen as the people cheer his comments:

The French Revolution devoured its own children, and led to Napoleon and his destructive wars of empire.

Louis the 16th and Marie Antoinette may have not been such a bad bargain in retrospect.

I'm not sure the above quote concerning Gandhi is entirely justified. Gandhi defeated an empire without firing a shot. There was poverty in India during British domination, and there was poverty after the British left. There was poverty in India five hundred years before Christ, which was how Siddartha Gautama became the fount of Buddhism. I'm not so sure about Indian history since Gandhi, but the objective of early European imperialism was to enrich the home country by any means necessary - and looting of colonial resources was a part of it. Post colonial trade barriers are perfectly understandable.

I believe it's a little early to define the "occupy" movement, such as it is. I believe that far left wingers are trying to capitalize on general frustrated ignorance within the population. However, governmental pressure on lenders and over leveraged sheep among the general American populace bear equal responsibility with Wall Street opportunists for the melt down.

The old quote concerning the con man at his trial:

I never cheated an honest man. They wanted something for nothing, and I gave them nothing for something.
