Occupy Watertown- Does the FBI See Occupy as a Terrorist Threat?
The Occupy Revolution is on! Occupy Watertown is the newest branch of the Occupy movement to pitch it's tent on corporate America's doorstep. Yes, corporate America is paying attention. Close attention.
While photographing the Black River for an upcoming Americoups' June cover, I inadvertently met the Occupy Watertown Group that were gathered in Riverview Park. Curiously, I asked the lead organizer his thoughts on the Occupy movement, the division we see in our country over race, gender and sexual orientation and the upcoming Presidential election.
John (he wanted his name withheld) is not a fan of the President's National Defense Authorization Act (N.D.A.A.). He added that the F.B.I. has been looking at his group, "The Juggalos", as a possible, new terrorist threat to our nation. He said that a couple of incidences, having nothing to do with the group as a whole, have been misconstrued causing the group, as a whole to be labeled as possible terrorists.
Juggalo is a name given to fans of "Insane Clown Posse" or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group.
The Juggalo Group in the Watertown, NY area have aligned themselves with the Occupy movement to express their concern with the current corporate takeover of our government. He said, "Small sub-cultures were banding together so that as a whole, their voice would be louder."
Looking into the claims of the organization's leader further, it appears that the Occupy organization is also under the scrutiny of corporate America as "Listen Logic", a subsidiary of Bain and Company follows the movement and issues warnings.
Threat assessments of the "potential violence" that may be a result of the Occupy movement and it's affect on the profits of International corporations are issued regularly.
Law enforcement appears to also have an interest in Occupy.
Could this explain why the U.S. Homeland Security was seen giving advice to city governments prior to their crackdowns last Fall?
Listen Logic, owned by Bain and Company is here:
Is Bain a subsidiary of Bain Capital and if so, what interest would Mitt Romney's past company have in the Occupy movement?
Are they tracking Occupy's activities for national security purposes? Or are they monitoring Occupy for the 1%?
We have the best government money can buy. Congress has left no doubt. Was the Department of Homeland Security created to protect Americans or America's elite and their profits?
What do you think? Is Occupy a threat and if so...to whom?
