On Sep. 17, the ninth anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, protestors are planning to begin a “siege” of the White House that will last fifty days—right up until Nov. 3. The website for the event is planning to bring thousands of protestors into Lafayette Square to “lay siege to the White House.” The site also warns that “the possibility of a civil war breaking out sometime next year is no joke.”
The organizers are citing two main reasons for the planned occupation: an alleged lack of progress on Wall Street since the 2009 occupation and that “Trump is trying to steal the election . . . and things could turn very ugly very quickly as November 3rd approaches.” One image used depicts the White House on fire and others show large riots directly in front of the building.
The FBI recommended contacting the Secret Service for comment. The Secret Service and the Department of Justice have not responded to this reporter’s requests for comment in time for publication.
The specific demands are not clear but the site raises concerns about President Trump refusing to leave office if he loses and that “white supremacists are waiting in the wings, spoiling for a violent showdown.”
These online ramblings are calling for “#METOOers, #BLM activists, Extinction Rebels, Sunrisers, and CodePinks,” to organize and join in Lafayette Park and to create “pop-up sieges at federal buildings in dozens of cities.”
The site used for the advertisements, Adbusters, is a Vancouver crowd-funded online magazine that gives protestors and occupiers a place to advertise plans.
One of the postings, deemed “tactical briefings,” asked readers to submit demands.
It has yet to be seen how many individuals will turn up to the occupation on Sep. 17.
Some of the comments:
All these brainwashed people with Antifa, BLM, and other’s have no clue what is coming to them. The average American Conservative, like myself, are sick of this BS but realize nothing can be done until Trump is reelected, and then we can start cleaning house!
These little boy’s and little girl’s cry fascism all the time, or want anarchy, yet, when you tell these idiot’s they want HUGE government, they look at you like “dude, what are you talking about, dude??”
Let these little bastards start the civil war, encourage them all to go to the white house, tell them it’s going to be fine, so they will go and get dealt with! I’m sick of these people, pretending to be American’s, when all they are are pieces of sh!t, indoctrinated by their school!! Let them find out what happens when you try to take over the government!!
Bring the pain, bring the fire!!;
Does anyone really think that the Secret Service, military and the White House are not aware of these plans? I am looking foward to seeing what is gonna happen, if anything.
I think all these pantifa, black lies matter, and occupy punks are just begging for a good butt kicking. Which may not be exactly what they get, might be much more.
I have just contacted Donal Trump and warned the White House. There WILL BE an insurrection act with the full force of the military and air support if this is real. The rioters BE WARNED!!!
