Francis Fox Piven – co-author of the Cloward-Piven strategy – was on MSNBC earlier this week and laid out her theory on what the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” movement must do to be “successful.”
“They’re not just parades. They’re not just marches. They’re not just yelling. Movements really have to, in a sense, cause trouble so the society resonates to some extent with the grievances, demands and hopes of the movement.”
Just so we know who we’re dealing with here, this is who Francis Fox Piven is.
The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.
These days Francis hangs around the friendly environs of places like MSNBC because she knows their folks won’t challenge her. She once tried to argue with Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell. It didn’t come out well. You can watch Piven become suicidal here.
The thing we find the most interesting about this whole discussion is that no one questions Piven on the FACT that “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” is a lie. It’s a “movement” based on a lie. Of course, following Joseph Goebels theory, they are certainly repeating it. Football teams are repeating the lie, the Congressional Black Caucus is repeating the lie (not that they’d know the truth if it ran over them), and CNN anchors are repeating the lie (not that anybody watches them.)
We’re waiting for the President’s State of the Union address. Word has it that black lawmakers are pushing the President to invite Michael Brown’s parents. We find that to be an interesting juxtaposition. Lawmakers celebrating law breakers. Not that it’s unusual, they’ve been celebrating Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for years.
Oh, and Francis, we think your latest strategy isn’t any better than your last one.
If these idiots keep this up, and authorities don’t start arresting them, we wouldn’t be surprised to see drivers breaking the line with their cars.
