Check out the video at NewsBusters, but here’s the meat of it:
You have the most dangerous job in the country, and these rich bastards on Wall Street they have ruined your 401(k)s, your pension funds, your future, your children’s future. Money that should be going to having better law enforcement has gone to needless wars in other lands.
So, my appeal to the police is you are us and we are you, and join us. It’s fun. We’ll even let you beat on a bongo drum. That’s my last word. Thank you.
Moore stops short of what I consider sedition, but let’s be honest: the Obama Administration is rallying behind the movement, along with other top Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi, and they aren’t about to call for reasoned or sane discourse from the Occupy movement as long as they see it as their last, best hope of holding on to the Senate and Presidency in 2012.
This could go south quickly, and I have to think that neither Moore nor Obama quite understand the forces they are playing with, nor the fact that if they do manage a revolt, they are likely to be among the high-profile targets of any blowback.
