Oh, the story you told, Keely, about your family being on "government assistance"? - Granite Grok

Oh, the story you told, Keely, about your family being on “government assistance”?

I come from an incredibly working class family and my family is already on numerous forms of government assistance

Million dollar house, eh? That would be Keely Martin Mullen (I got the name wrong here) from the Million Student March that was skewered eviscerated interviewed by Neil Cavuto about the free stuff they were demanding that others give them.  She said the above, given the nation the idea that she came from a poor family. Well…

…she lied.  Outright. Baldfaced.  She is actually part of the 1%; The College Fix has that news:

Northeastern University student Keely Mullins, an organizer of the “Million Student March” who represented herself as “working class” in a recent Fox Business interview, actually comes from a privileged (and gender-bending!) family herself.

NewBostonPost reports that Mullen’s father paid more than $1 million for the family home on Chicago’s North Side 10 years ago, and Keely graduated from a high school whose tuition “tops out at $34,560.”

And dear old Dad is rather pleased as punch, too:

Steve Mullen, a lecturer at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, has been very supportive of his daughter’s activism for higher taxes on 1-percent families like his, even himself participating in the Chicago Million Student March.

From The Boston Post that is linked is a phrase that I found, well, both disturbing and unsurprising:

Steve Mullen has posted numerous photos to his Facebook page showing his participation at Chicago’s Million Student March. In one post, Mullen notes that his daughter helped launch the Million Student March initiative:

“This is a movement that my daughter Keely has initiated along with one of her fellow student colleagues. They are gaining traction in what promises to be the next national crisis. We need to demand a serious discussion of what we plan to do re: the cost of education in order to give these young people entering life a fair shot. Please spread the word!”

Are Rahm Emmanual’s famous words “Never waste a crisis” (especially one that is artifically created) ringing in your ears now?  So Daddy is all about the next crisis that is being manufactured?  Kinda explains why, all of a sudden, this “grassroots movement” is Astroturfed all over the nation.  Actions from the Frankfurt School laid the groundwork and the 60s radicals and Alinsky did the perversions and groundwork to put the barrels of gunpowder in place.  All that was necessary was the Maoist match.  And Daddy is oh so happy!

And he’s not the only one.  News is out that Organizing For America (formerly known as Obama for America, the outfit that first got Obama elected) is having a big hand in this all, carrying out Alinsky’s admonition to rub the wounds they created raw (emphasis mine, reformatted):

How Obama is bankrolling a nonstop protest against invented outrage | New York Post How Obama is bankrolling a nonstop protest against invented outrage

Barack Obama’s presidency has been pockmarked by rioting, looting and protests. That’s no coincidence. It’s what the former community organizer sought from Day One. And it’s just going to get worse before he leaves office.  The senseless protests we’re seeing break out on the campuses of the University of Missouri, Yale and other colleges, as well as on bridges and highway overpasses and outside police stations, are precisely the kind of thing Obama was trained to organize while attending leftist agitation schools founded by Chicago communist Saul Alinsky. He learned to a fare-thee-well how to “rub raw the sores of discontent.”

These irritating, self-absorbed, belligerent brats will “hands-up, don’t shoot” themselves into every cobwebbed corner of society.
Now Obama is returning the favor of his Alinsky masters, training and cloning an army of social justice bullies to carry on his revolution to “fundamentally transform America.” He’s doing it mainly through a little-known but well-funded group called Organizing for Action, or OFA, which will outlast his administration. OFA, formerly Obama for America, has trained more than 10,000 leftist organizers, who, in turn, are training more than 2 million youths in Alinsky street tactics.

And where are they doing this?

The leftist group, which recently registered as a 501c4 nonprofit eligible for unlimited contributions, holds regular “organizing summits” on college campuses. Through social media, they mobilize flash mobs against “biased cops,” “climate-change deniers,” “Wall Street predators” and “gun extremists.” They hold rallies against conservative foes of gay marriage, LGBT rights, abortion and amnesty for illegal immigrants.

In addition, Obama has trained hundreds of thousands of junior agitators through AmeriCorps, a Clinton youth program he’s dramatically expanded, and through My Brother’s Keeper, the “racial justice” initiative he launched in the wake of the 2012 death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. My Brother’s Keeper agitates for “school discipline reform” — that is, touchy-feely alternatives to suspensions and expulsions — and other measures to “improve outcomes for boys and young men of color.”

All three of these federally sponsored projects have crossover with the Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street movements, both of which Obama embraces. They share manpower and resources, as well as radical agendas, while coordinating activities with nonprofit ACORN clones, who are being secretly bankrolled through Justice Department subprime settlement funds extracted from banks.

…This president has encouraged the nonstop civil unrest exhausting the nation.



But, are they burning them and our notions of caring about what they say?  When I get called racist, I just shrug my shoulders – and then laugh at them.  Go ahead, prove it – and they can’t.  Keep asking the simple questions until they either explode or walk away (frankly, the former is much more fun than the latter). Take their words and use them against ALL THE WHILE MAKING SURE OTHERS ARE HEARING YOU calmly talk and they start frothing at the mouth.  Why?

Obama is leaving behind a generation of militant jerks — collectively known as his “family” — to continue to proliferate protests and militate against everything and nothing. These irritating, self-absorbed, belligerent brats will “hands-up, don’t shoot” themselves into every cobwebbed corner of society, and the liberal media will give them the national bullhorn to amplify their hatred every time.

Jerks are fun to jerk around – you just have to marshall your fears behind a fence and ask yourself ONE important question: what can they REALLY do to me?  Not what they WANT you to believe, but actually do?  Answer, pretty much, is not much.  Learn that truth and it becomes far easier to stand up to them.  And teaching your friends, your family of this, well, consider it a vaccine.

Chronic social irritation can do lasting damage to the fabric of a nation. By falsely accusing people of racism . . . or sexism . . . or homophobia . . . or Islamophobia — or whatever other “ism” or phobia they come up with next — these agitators are creating angst and hatred in people’s hearts that wasn’t there previously.

That part is true and it may be years for us to recover – but if they continue to overplay their hands (as I believe they are) takes that irritation off the board.

But maybe that’s the objective. As Alinsky advised Obama and other young radicals: “A revolutionary organizer must shake up the prevailing patterns of lives — agitate, create disenchantment and discontent with the current values [until] masses of people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values. . . . The time is then ripe for revolution.”

But it also make the time ripe to just ignore them but only when you reject their manufactured premises.
