Slay The Dragon's Head: OccupyTheFed Instead
Alex Jones fires up 'Occupy the Fed' movement
October 8, 2011
People tend to blame the bad economy on the president, Congress or Wall Street. Although all of these are culpable, the ultimate blame rests with the Federal Reserve, says Jones. The Federal Reserve is not part of the government. Rather, it’s a private banking group with ties to mega-corporations and international banking interests. It also can manipulate the economy through issuing currency and setting interest rates.
“The Federal Reserve is the real problem, although a lot of people do not really understand it,” said Jarrod Atkinson, who works in Dallas and attended the rally.
As more people continue to wake up, Jones is hopeful.
“Ten years ago, there wouldn’t be anyone out here protesting them,” Jones said. “But now in national polls between 75 and 85 percent of Americans want to audit or abolish this criminal organization. That’s why they’ve had all of these different Federal Reserve spokespeople come out and say, ‘Oh, we support Occupy Wall Street.’ They want to keep it nebulous. 'Oh, the free market. Let us raise your taxes, that’ll get the rich guys.' Right. They wrote the laws; they’re exempt.”
The Occupy Wall Street movement was the inspiration for Jones’ Occupy the Fed movement. He became suspicious when President Obama and even Federal Reserve spokespeople began throwing their support behind the protests. Jones says he decided to start the Occupy the Fed movement to help keep the focus on the Fed.
Jones is planning to appear at demonstrations in Houston and San Antonio over the weekend. Listeners of the Alex Jones Show were also urged to hold similar protests at Federal Reserve branches throughout the country.
