Unlike the Occupy Wall Street demonstration, October's push for action in DC is apparently putting some big names out front in advance of a Washington DC push.
Former presidential advisor Van Jones describes October as the month the progressives' fight back goes into full swing. Jones explains part of the left's pitch in this MSNBC interview:
In the interview, Jones also dismisses concern over the federal deficit as “phony made-up deficit stuff.” MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell either missed the comment, or intentionally let it slide, and let Jones continue on a class war rant.
On the bright side, for all the progressive rhetoric that they're beginning to fight back against the conservative tide that swept the nation in the November 2010 elections, I've yet to see where anyone but hard-core progressives are listening to the pitch. If anything, polls seem to show the more progressives reveal their goals and strategy, the more they and their ideas fall into disfavor with mainstream America.
