Count Basie once said

“It’s the notes you don’t hear that matter.”

And for Barack Obama, it is the words you haven’t heard that matter.

Over the last weeks of Occupy Wall St movement events have proceeded in a predictable fashion. A predominantly white group of spoiled rich kids camped out in Zucotti park has grown into a mob replete with sexual assaults, anti-Semitism, vandalism and violence.

A nice summary of OWS current offenses can be seen here. Among the hits:

NYPD officer: crime and sexual assault ‘more widespread than even they think’

D.C. ‘occupier’ says he’s not anti-semitic, just ‘pro-goyim’

ACORN paying homeless to protest

More proof OWS was not ‘spontaneous’

Barack Obama has made clear his support of the OWS.

“The most important thing we can do right now is those of us in leadership letting people know that we understand their struggles and we are on their side, and that we want to set up a system in which hard work, responsibility, doing what you’re supposed to do, is rewarded,” Obama tells ABC News. “And that people who are irresponsible, who are reckless, who don’t feel a sense of obligation to their communities and their companies and their workers that those folks aren’t rewarded.”

Obama took a million dollars from Goldman Sachs in 2008 and has collected more money from Wall St. in this election cycle than all GOP candidates combined.


The fact that OWS has not condemned Obama and has not formed an Occupy White House group utterly invalidates the entire premise of OWS.

Never mind that.

Obama spurs on the OWS movement with via class warfare.

President Obama called Monday for up to $1.5 trillion in new taxes on “the wealthiest Americans and the biggest corporations,” the major part of a debt reduction plan designed to cut more than $3 trillion over the next decade.

“We can’t just cut our way out of this hole,” Obama said during a Rose Garden speech on the national debt that tops $14.5 trillion.

“If we’re going to make spending cuts, many of which we wouldn’t make if we weren’t facing such large budget deficits, then it’s only right that we ask everyone to pay their fair share,” Obama said.

Never mind that ten years of this millionaires’ tax would pay for only four months of Obama deficits.

Never mind that.

Never mind that no left wing millionaires or billionaire have come forward offering his wealth to the nation’s Occupiers.

Never mind that.

Yet as OWS movement turns malignant and violence spreads, it must be remembered that Barack Obama has not asked for peace. He has not asked that the movement be respectful. He has not asked OWS members not to destroy stores and personal property. He has not asked them to avoid assaulting police officers. He has not asked them not to commit sexual assault.

He hasn’t said a word about that. The question is, why not? As the leader of the nation and a supporter of OWS, it is incumbent upon Obama to plead for reason and for peace. Absent them, Obama tacitly endorses the mob actions.

It’s the words you don’t hear that matter.
