  1. I caught wind of this several months ago when I saw the phrase “call to action” on a poster of one of the communist teacher’s union members in Wisconsin. I seemed to recall this from my youth in the 60s in anti-war protests and it’s come up before. Amazing thing about 2011 vs. 1970 is the Al Gore’s amazing internet.

    Do a search for “day of rage” and “call to action September 2011” and dig in to the ones with “social” and “progressive” linked sites.

    There are MUCH bigger plans afoot and they’re being planned out in the open where everyone can see it. It’s not a conspiracy theory when it’s this clear and out in the open, except no one in the mainstream media are reporting on it, which makes this kind of talk “conspiracy theory rants”. Even the national Congressional Black Caucus is sending reps into neighborhoods calling for uprisings, “civil disobedience” and violence. From’s website: “‘THIS IS WAR’ — CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS TRAVELS US CITIES USING VIOLENT RHETORIC: DECLARES ‘WAR’ ON RACIST TEA PARTY, SAYS TEA PARTY WANTS TO LYNCH BLACKS, CALLS FOR BANK RUNS, CIVIL UNREST IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS AND HOMES”

    Do your homework. Stock up. Food. Water. Staples. Beans and Bullets.

    • Thank you Norm. It shows how effective has been their decades of intensive practice of dialectic shifting, especially as they naturally place themselves in positions of the influencers of society.
