Today, The Rick Amato Show ventured to “Occupy San Diego”. Rick, our producer Sutton, yours truly (executive assistant) and several of our friends encountered socialists, communists, anti-Semities, and frankly, stinky people.
Rick was asked to speak today after he criticized the “Occupy Wall Street” movement as one that harbors and equally emboldens “misfits, goons, and idiots.” He accepted their invitation to speak and here is what we discovered.
Below is Civic Plaza in downtown San Diego, where the “Occupy San Diego” event took place.
Of course, how could we escape the anti-Semites?
Don’t forget the eco-fanatics either!
In journalistic fashion, I’ve included videos from the event, ranging from Rick Amato’s Tea Party speech to select interviews with event goers.
This video highlights the purpose of “Occupy San Diego”:
Below is Rick Amato’s entire speech:
Additionally, we interviewed several ” Occupy San Diego” attendees.
The first guy does not understand the term “small government.” Instead, he maligns capitalism with fascist African governmental systems:
The second guy admits to being a self-hating capitalist below:
Remember, socialism and communism do make us equal–equal in poverty and misery.
My parents endured communism in the former USSR in the Baltic Republic of Lithuania. Fortunately, they escaped nearly 26 years ago and came here to California. In their former homeland, they had no freedom. Most pointedly, they were subjected to food rationing, religious intolerance (both Mom and Dad), institutionalized anti-Semitism (Dad), poverty, universal healthcare, and exorbitantly high taxes. To set the record straight: Communism reduces people to human debris.
In contrast, the United States is the freest place in the world. You can start a business, live without fear, freely practice religion, go to university, and make money. What other nation ensures this success and happiness?
These people need to stop scapegoating capitalism (and Jews). Instead, they should go after President Obama, Jeff Immelt, George Soros, and the crony capitalists in Wall Street–not capitalism itself. Unfortunately, “Occupy Wall Street” apologists are being exploited by leftists and have become their useful idiots. Time will tell if they will wake up and ingest some common sense.
Stay tuned for updates from San Diego and California.
