Within the last 24 hours significant, credible information has been received by this reporter indicating that the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement may be a mere prelude to mass violence in the streets of the U.S. One source, a political operative with connections in both Parties who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that he fears widespread civil unrest associated with the movement--unrest that could potentially lead to dire consequences regarding the 2012 Presidential election.
Those fears are becoming increasingly common as shown by the number of persons calling into radio talk shows expressing their concern about the 'Occupy' movement and its potentially subversive aims. Rumors concerning the spread of violence and civil unrest prior to the 2012 Presidential election have been running rampant on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
Some have even suggested that Barack Obama himself is using the movement to stoke and prod the protesters into committing acts of violence that can then be used for political ends, such as a declaration of Martial law and the suspension of the 2012 Presidential election altogether.
While some of the growing hysteria seems to be far-fetched, there are subtle signs lurking just beneath the surface that point to the potential for such widespread civil unrest in America.
For example, the current tactic of Occupy protesters to gather in the streets in major financial districts in the major cities is only the first phase of an orchestrated multi-pronged attack. The second phase is believed to be much more aggressive and thus, more prone to deteriorate into violence.
