Beck: OWS Debt-Canceling Effort 'Sounds Like The Golden Dawn Party'

As we noted yesterday, Glenn Beck is so insanely and rigidly ideological that it results in worldview in which everything is either black or white, so that anything done by someone with whom he disagrees or dislikes is inherently suspect and dangerous.

The extent to which this "all or nothing" worldview dominates Beck's understanding was perfectly expressed in this clip from the morning meeting yesterday during which producer Tiffany Siegel was commenting on a story about a project being run by Occupy Wall Street which uses donations to buy up consumer debt and then cancel it.

The project is called Rolling Jubilee and it works because lenders to whom the debt is owed often sell the right to that debt to third parties for pennies on the dollar. In this case, OWS buys up the debt and then, instead of trying to collect it, sends a letter to the person who owes the debt, telling them that it has been canceled and they are no longer obligated to pay it.

And all Beck can say when he hears about this effort is "gee, that sounds like the Golden Dawn Party."

The Golden Dawn Party is, of course, a fascist neo-Nazi political party in Greece and Beck's favorite catch-all term for warning about the coming resurgence of the Nazi movement in America and around the world:

Lance Wallnau Says Seven Mountains Dominionism is the Answer to Occupy Wall Street

On Wednesday’s edition of Prophetic Perspectives with Rick Joyner, Lance Wallnau, a major proponent of Seven Mountains Dominionism, explained that the Occupy Wall Street movement emerged as a result of the fact that the Devil, and not right-wing Christians, was in charge of Wall Street banks, which he says led to the economic crisis. Wallnau said that along with the economics mountain, “the Devil will send kings” to different cultural mountains, such as government media, arts and education, to “screw it up.” He warned that government leaders are “under the Kingdom of Darkness” and that it is the responsibility of people with a “biblical worldview” to “dominate” each of the Seven Mountains.

Watch:

Wallnau: The Church is the local body of Christ, but what we’ve misunderstood is, the world system has to have teaching, because the only way you’re going to see nations made disciples is if we unpack what we’ve got in these systems. What are these systems? These are the systems that are in chaos right now because they haven’t been taught. Right now you’ve got, depending when you watch this broadcast, you got the Occupy Wall Street movement. You know why? Because we didn’t Occupy Wall Street with kingdom principles regarding fiscal responsibility and discipline. Now we got people who are frustrated, like Woodstock generation type, Next Generation people in the streets, who are upset because somebody didn’t deal with economics. So if you don’t deal with economics, guess what? The Devil will send kings into that area who will screw it up. If you don’t deal with the arts and the music and the literature and the songs and the culture that your children are being baptized into, guess what? The Devil will send the influencers into the art world and they will pervert your kids thinking. If you don’t start to control truth in media and conscience in media so there is accountability, the Devil will send kings who will dominate the information process. If you don’t start to get a hold of government responsibility and laws properly framed that have a biblical worldview…these people that are there, unfortunately, not only are they under the Kingdom of Darkness, when they meet us they don’t always meet the best of us, we should be like Josephs who are solving problems, we shouldn’t be like angry prophets who are upset with the way the world is getting screwed up. Education mountain, I tell you, either we go there or the Devil sends people there.

WND Columnist Urges 'Hard Labor' for Occupy Wall Street 'Creatures'

Les Kinsolving of WorldNetDaily thinks that demonstrators in the Occupy Wall Street movement should be punished for their protests with “extensive terms of hard labor.” Citing the OWS demonstrations against K Street lobbyists, Kinsolving says that only hard labor can “consume the energy of these creatures”:

The Washington Post reported:

"As a cold rain fell, hundreds of people filled K Street, chanting 'We are the 99 percent' while slogging through puddles and waving protest signs. They blocked intersections with newspaper boxes, wooden pallets, office furniture and tents. Tempers frayed. Horns blared.

"D.C. police said 62 people were arrested after they formed human chains across thoroughfares. Many were charged with obstruction of a public highway. On Wednesday night, 12 more people were arrested when they wouldn't leave the steps of the Supreme Court."

I surely defend the right to picket – that historic and constitutional right.

Surely this right does not include the construction of housing structures in public parks or the blocking of public thoroughfares by arm-locked protesters.

But the Washington Times reported that the D.C. code punishes obstructing a public highway with only a fine – from $100 to $250. What is needed are extensive terms of hard labor to consume the energy of these creatures.

Violence Never An Option Against Peaceful Protests

Law enforcement officials broke up the Oakland offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street protests this week with tear gas and, some protestors say, rubber bullets. Violence should never be used against peaceful protesters.
