Violence: Frances Fox Piven Caught in the Crosshairs of Her Own Words

Glenn Beck continues to suffer an onslaught of programmatic propaganda by progressives, who accuse him, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and Sarah Palin’s kitchen sink of inciting violence — while at the same time assailing Beck for his exposing the true violation of Americans’ lives and livelihoods by these neo-Marxists.

Recently they are attacking Beck over Marxist agitator, Frances Fox Piven, who, in her old age, has been caught talking up violence to her callow trainees.  One jaw dropping occurrence of her mouthing off came in 2004, at the University of Wisconsin, in Moscow–er, Madison.  It was chronicled by Trevor Loudon last September in his New Zeal and in Gulag Bound, entitled quite essentialy, “Frances Fox Piven Advocating Violence.”

Video, “Cloward and Piven – ‘It is ok to use violence as long as it is a BIG part of your strategy‘”

A corroborative instance surfaced this January, again in New Zeal, in Gulag Bound, and in other venues and was once again featured by Beck.  Loudon entitled his entry, “Frances Fox Piven: The Tea Party is all about Sex – She Prefers Violence.”  For the record, it featured these two videos.

The progs would not have their St. Frances be so sullied, not even by her own words, so  Twitter tweets, talking heads, the Daily KOS, Media Matters, Huffington Post, The Nation, the New York Times, etc. fired at Beck in coordinated volleys.

Lately, fellow Obama exposer, Stanley Kurtz has come to the rescue.  His National Review article is entitled, “Frances Fox Piven’s Violent Agenda,” published Monday, January 24th.  Kurtz’ blade is is sharp and true.

While he  flays the fictions of Ms. Piven’s nonviolence from head to toe, we would slice into that body of work and pull this out, exposing her heart.

In her December 2010 Nation column, Piven wrote: “Local protests have to accumulate and spread — and become more disruptive — to create pressures on national politicians. An effective movement of the unemployed will have to look something like the strikes and riots that have spread across Greece. . . .” Given Piven’s strategic stance, it’s clear that she and The Nation are in fact calling for violence. Her denial of this lacks all credibility. Similarly, when The Nation’s editors defend Piven by referring to her support for “civil disobedience” and “street protest,” they are attempting to create the impression that Piven is a virtual disciple of Martin Luther King Jr., when in fact her longstanding strategy has little if anything to do with nonviolence.

But do peruse Kurtz’ entire work, that you may shoot down the criticism of any who lay open the plans of Ms. Piven and her colleagues.  I hope they are not too… disrupting for you to consider.

As to how the Cloward-Piven secret was hunted down and plugged, it was cornered in 2005 by Richard Poe, in Then, on September 22, 2008, as the financial crisis raged on and presidential candidate Obama hung back, well away from the TARP-slinging of the Hank Paulson extorted Congress, “Obama, Voter Fraud & Mortgage Meltdown” appeared in That report came from the rifle of former federal prosecutor, James Walsh.

The kill shot was taken six days later from a window of, by former White House accountant, James Simpson, in his now famous, “Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis.”

Now, that corpse still lays open and the autopsy goes on.  Bio-testing of its body of evidence reveals the seed of many paramours, including two names that appear on numerous rap sheets: Soros and said Obama.  It all tends to answer the oft repeated question, “They aren’t that incompetent, what are they doing?”

My only bone to pick with Kurtz’ article is his assurance without support that “…President Obama is not trying to create an economic crisis on his own watch.”  Perhaps he means the sabotage is intended to effectuate after an Obama administration is over.  By the hard work of Great Depression specialist, Ben Bernanke, plus 2008 Meltdown overseer, Timothy Geithner, et. al., they do seem to be trying to delay the bursting of America’s spending, lending, and currency printing explosives — as the buildup worsens the eventuality.

However, like the Greenwich Village bomb that killed its Weather Underground makers, this one could go off early.  What they are doing to America could blow up right in their faces just like Piven’s words blew up in hers.
