The Occupy Wall Street movement has become the talk of the political world in recent days. One Fox news reporter described what is happening with Occupy Wallstreet as “filth”. Others are stating that the OWS is simply a way to rally for the re-election of Barack Obama. Ann Coulter has said that the movement is a “mob uprising”. United States Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar Thomas from Roosevelt, NY went toe to toe with the New York Police Department voicing his frustration. Just today, violence broke out in Oakland California where the police flexed their muscles to show they are in control.
This movement has gotten the attention of the country and the world where now entire nations are going on strike. But what is really going on? What are the implications of this movement and what can we expect, if anything, as this movement progresses?
In my personal opinion, this is something that the elite and globalists want. The only way to actually form a one world government is if the people willingly accept it. In order for that to happen, the people need to create the chaos because the elite have learned over the centuries, that they cannot enslave by force. My analogy using the “frog in the kettle” approach of the elite, is that the frog is simply beginning to realize it is getting cooked. The problem is, even though the frog realizes this, the cook will simply place the frog in a freezer where things will seem great for a while (especially after the heat) until it’s too late and the frog becomes frozen. Okay, not the best analogy but I hope you get my drift.
To gain some good objective analysis on the issue, and not my horrible analogies, I decided to inquire the co-host to the Revelation Radio News podcast and author of the book, The New World Order and the Eugenics Wars: A Christian Perspective, Andrew Hoffman to weigh in on the issue.
SHORT INTERVIEW WITH ANDREW HOFFMAN
Q: In your opinion, what percentage of Occupy Wallstreet protesters know why they are there? And what is the overall consensus for why they are there?
Andrew: I think virtually 100% of them are there because they feel and see the economic inequality in America and around the world. Their God-given sense of justice alerts them to the fact that they are being lied to by mass media, advertising, etc. They are there, ironically enough, because that is the conditioned response created by the same mass media and educational indoctrination that they are trying to rebel against. There’s nothing the system likes more than a group of angry people seeking power (other than TV watching drones who will go along with anything, of course). As long as people try to defeat Mordor by grabbing ahold of and wielding the ring of political power, Sauron has nothing to worry about.
Q: What are your thoughts on the people who have been arrested during the protest? Are they rightful arrests or are they in direct violation to our rights?
Andrew: The arrests are certainly further evidence that America is a police state. Police tactics like kettling are designed to create violence and give those wearing a uniform an excuse to break some heads. They are designed both to discourage those watching at home from taking part in protests and to infuriate those who are involved in the hope that some of them become violent in return to justify even more violent crackdowns. If that fails, it’s simple enough to dress some cops up as anarchists and let them go break some windows.
Q: Do you think America will get to the point where Greece is now with work stoppages, traffic stoppage and general strikes to the point where the entire country is at a halt? Or will this whither away as the cries fall on deaf ears?
Andrew: I don’t think that will happen anytime soon. Americans don’t have as much of a history of mass strikes as European countries such as Greece. Americans aren’t hungry. Americans still have TV. After a severe enough dollar crisis, however, all bets are off.
Q:What other times in American history, if any, have we seen this kind of cry for revolution? What was the outcome?
Andrew: I think the “Progressive” leaning parts of OWS certainly are similar to socialist and union elements that were popular during the Great Depression. The libertarian parts of OWS and the Tea Party bear some similarity to the Revolutionary War era desire to be free and left alone. The outcome of both movements was war (directly in the Revolutionary War, as a necessary diversion in the case of WWII). War is obviously already going on in a big way and seems to be a necessary part of the ruling elite’s method for keeping order. A massive, full-scale war certainly can’t be disregarded as a way to channel people’s anger towards an enemy and to have a plausible for severe economic hardship at home.
Q: What do you expect to see happening with this movement in the coming weeks?
Andrew: Not much. It’s getting cold outside. It’s football season. The media will come up with a new flavor of the week and no mass movement in American society can survive without television coverage.
Q:What should bible believing Christians do about the movement? Where should we take out stance, especially those of us Christians who are aware of biblical prophecy and end times scenarios?
Andrew: You can’t beat Satan at his own game–the political power struggle. I think we should speak strongly for honest weights and measures, for justice. However, the methods of the power struggle, whether violent or non-violent, are off-limits to us. All we can do is love our enemies, do good to those who persecute us, turn the other cheek, all the stuff that Jesus taught but the church has been explaining away for the last 1,800 years. The ends never justify the means. Besides, we don’t control the ends, that part is up to God and His sovereignty. We’re all still sheeple, regardless of how much research we do. We do get a choice between following the one true Shepherd or the wolf of this world, however.
