Rahm’s Chicago crackdown aims at Occupy: Chicago poised to destroy the Democratic Party just like 1968 | Demand Transformation | Scoop.it
Is the Chicago mayor protecting his city? Or his former boss?

 

Emanual is repeating the gross misuse of power just like Daily did in 1968 and will turn the 99% against the Democrats once again. Politicians never learn. They are inviting the ruin of the Democratic Party once more. Just like 1968 Democratic Convention.

 

But the Democrats haven't been for the 99% for a very long time. It will become clear again that ALL Politicians that are currently in power are working for the 0.1%
