Anti-occupy band banned from playing in Zucotti park

New York, NY – Dec. 4… Madison Rising will not skirt the law. The pro-America rock band
wanted to procure a legal permit for a live anti-Occupy Wall Street performance. A full week was spent on a
wild goose chase around New York City where various government agencies were visited in an effort to
pull a legal permit for Madison Rising’s “Take Back Wall Street” concert in Zuccotti Park on Tuesday,
December 6, 2011.

Madison Rising endeavored to celebrate capitalism with a concert and to thank the hard
working women and men of the NYPD, FDNY, and on Wall Street. After finally ending up at Brookfield Office
Properties (owner of Zuccotti Park), Madison Rising was ultimately denied a permit on the day Third Eye Blind
performed to Occupy in Zuccotti Park without a permit.

Madison Rising, a rock band that released its debut album last month, is fueled by an eternal gratitude
and love of our country. “Right now, ignorance and apathy are running wild amongst our citizens. Right now,
we need to get people thinking about issues that really matter. We hope Madison Rising will inspire that,”
said Dave Bray, Lead Vocalist, Military Veteran.

It’s time for a little activist-on-activist action

The Occupy Wall Street movement started almost two months ago when a ragtag bunch of anti-capitalist demonstrators attempted and failed to take over the famous street that is home  to the New York Stock Exchange.

Police had security set so that protesters could not approach the financial institution so the movement .. moved – to Zucotti Park.

The 33,000 square-foot space is privately owned by Brookfield Office Properties – a commercial real estate company – and is named after that company’s chairman. It is not the occupiers’ property to do with as they wish. It is not their park as they so often claim. It is someone else’s private property and they are trespassing.

Over the two month occupation, cardboard box parts, tents, pavilions, cooking centers and electrical generation equipment have moved into the squatter’s camp – also known as an “Obamaville” or a “Class Warfare Shanty Town”.

This has occurred on a medium-to-large scale in several U.S. cities. Oakland, Portland, Denver, D.C. and New York City. Smaller efforts have struggled in cities like Chapel Hill, NC.

Due to long hours of incessant drumming for dollars and crowd-powered “Mic Checks”, neighbors around these movements had started to tire. Add in the businesses that were losing revenue and laying off workers due to the presence of the unpleasant, unkempt and unhealthy tent villages and that the city’s leadership was getting an earful from the citizenry, a series of sexual assaults, health issues, assaults on non-protesters, trespassing issues, thefts, an attack on an EMS crew and more – and the real 99% (or whatever) started a revolt of their own – the occupation of parks had to end – NOW.

The struggle: capitalism and individual liberties/property rights vs. collectivism and “redistributive  change”. The free-market philosophy favored by Conservatives vs. the class warfare strategy in-use by President Obama. Even the Pew Research Center decided that a poll pitting the Occupiers against the TEA parties was necessary. Everyone wanted a war between those working hard to keep what they earn  and those working hard to take it from someone that earned it.

Some label the battle as the ‘haves’ versus the ‘have nots’, but in truth, it’s the ‘haves’ vs those that envy what the ‘haves’ have done with their lives. Why is this tiny group of do-nothings getting so much say and the majority of hard-working Americans not protesting in return? Where are those loud and rowdy TEA partiers?

It does bring to light an important point – how serious are Americans about their rights to pursue happiness, own property and be free from an oppressive government ? In 2009, the liberty-loving TEA parties were a force to be dealt with. In 2010, they molded an election but, in 2011, the energy behind the TEA party may be waning.

The results in Ohio show that the Unions out-organized Conservative groups. More people showed up to vote down the public union collective bargaining reform than all that voted for Governor Kasich in the last election. How does that happen? Simple – apathy.

There is no denying a strong link between Unions, progressives like Michael Moore and the Occupy movement just as there is no denying the link between The TEA Parties and Conservatives like Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan. The battle lines are drawn – each side has it’s communicators and techniques and whichever is better motivated will shape the 2012 elections as the TEA Parties did in 2012.

It’s time to raise that Gadsden flag. It’s time to dust off that pocket version of the constitution. It’s time to volunteer, march, read, write, email, call, register, donate, and most of all –  VOTE!! Get informed and vote in the primaries. The caucuses and primaries start in just a few short weeks. Are you working for a candidate,

Conservatives don’t need to take over a park for two months to bring together several hundred to a few thousand like-minded as-did the Occupiers. Marches like the 9-12 Marches and events like those at the Lincoln Memorial in 2010 show that there are hundreds of thousands of willing, active and awake Americans that will come to the call. A call to activism.

Activism against sloth;  a revolt against class-warfare;  a revolution against socialistic change; a rebuke against most-everything for which the occupiers stand.

We cannot be silent any more. Just sitting and watching as an entire generation idolizes the failed ideology of wealth redistribution that has been tried in nations near and far. We have to speak out and say “not now” – “not HERE” – “NOT EVER”.

When will the true defenders of freedom speak out in public and tell these small groups of ill-thinking trespassers that they are NOT the 99%. They aren’t the 50%, or even the 1%. They are a scrambled set of failed liberal ideas trying to join together against a common enemy – success – and those willing to work for it.

It’s time for a little activist on activist action. This is not a call to violence – but a call to challenge the loudmouth, small-minded, short-term thinking coming out of places like Zucotti park.

NYPD Gives Occupiers the Boot in 1 AM Raid

                AP/Ken Rodriguez photo
 Last night at 1am, more than 1000 NYPD officers were summoned for what was said to be a training exercise near Zucotti Park, the home of the Occupy Wall Street protesters for the past few months. In a hint of what was to come, the NYPD instructed the officers to bring their hats and bats, as in riot gear.  In a sign of the times, the NYPD actually made up flyers to pass out that explained why they were cascading down upon Zucotti Park at 1am on a Monday night. The flyer read as follows: 

Note the political correctness in the flyer that says the Occupiers may return to the park, but now must actually obey the rules of no tents, sleeping bags, etc.? They could have avoided this whole mess if they had simply demanded that the rule of law was obeyed in the very beginning of this debacle. Meanwhile, they have let the community and businesses suffer unnecessarily for months on end due to the filthy unsanitary conditions that prevented the real 99% of the community from using the parks/city streets/subways safely.  So after months of the media painting this scourge as some kind of an innocent youth protest, during which we have seen rapes, drug overdoses, murders,massive theft and overall filth that produced a lice epidemic and two verified cases of tuberculosis,  they have finally been given eviction notices by the NYPD. It’s about damn time! 
What brought on this sudden decision to enforce the rule of law, that the politically correct cowards (the Mayor of Oakland comes to mind here) across America refused to do right from the beginning ? It turns out Mayor Bloomberg had to answer calls about the posters around town that announced that the Occupiers would be closing down The New York Stock Exchange at 7am on…Tuesday! Bloomberg had to announce that the Stock Exchange will be open for business as usual and promised them that they will be able to get to work on Tuesday, rest assured.  The protesters were also promising to Occupy the subways in all five boroughs of NYC at 3 pm, and “Take the square” referring to Foley square, with posters of the infamous Tiananmen square revolt for the public’s comparison.  A small group of businessmen also appeared at city hall on Monday to express their disgust at how their rights to earn a living were being denied by letting this lawlessness continue unabated. Bloomberg finally got up the courage to take back NYC from the .001% ! Excuse me if I do not congratulate the Mayor here. This should have been stopped months ago. I hope Bloomberg and the other mayors across America that encouraged this lawlessness are made to pay restorations to all the businesses that lost money, and also pay for the massive cleanup of their cities...out of their own pockets, not the taxpayers account.
Seeing as to how the Occupy Wall Street, Zucotti Park movement is considered to be the originator of this movement that spread across America and the world, seeing them evicted for being the non-paying, irresponsible, filth-inducing, lawless  bunch of dis-respectable people they truly are will surely spell the end for all of the Occupy Park Benches protests.  The new movement of kicking the Occupiers out should be called the “Taking back the rights of the true 99% of Americans to go to work unmolested and enjoy clean, sanitary cities across America movement.” 
PS: Last time I checked, the Tea Party movements were never evicted from anything. They protested within the law, and then cleaned up and went home. Can any of the lunatics in the media that try to equate these filthy Occupiers with the Tea Party movement, be counted on to show the honesty and integrity to report on the total cost to the working taxpayer these protests will be found to have incurred as cities across America start cleaning up and disinfecting the Occupiers mess? Don’t hold your breath.  Occupy Wall Street, Portland, Seattle and others are already shut down. The rest will be soon to follow.
UPDATE:  5:30 am NYPD reports an initial arrest total of around 70 protesters. Dumpsters now moving in to start hauling away the massive amount of tents and trash.
