According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution riot police were dispatched to East Point, Georgia as 30,000 people gathered to apply for federal Section 8 housing benefits.
A quick look at the scene in East Point:
Over the last year we’ve seen similar crowds, though not as large, gather across the country in cities like Detroit, where thousands stood in line for food vouchers and federal assistance.
This morning, we learned that over 2 million New York food stamp recipients will be adversely affected because of new legislation that will divert some of the state’s funds from the food stamp program to prevent the layoffs of, or rehire, up to 8200 teachers.
For now, the majority of those affected are of the lowest income classes in the US. Demographically, these are more than likely minority Americans. However, you can be certain that we will soon see similar situations spreading to those who currently call themselves the “middle class,” a demographic whose majority make up is Caucasion. As they lose jobs, savings, their homes and the way of life they have become accustomed to, they, too, will take to the streets.
As Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute has oft been quoted as saying, “When people lose everything, and they have nothing left to lose, they lose it.”
We’re seeing thousands of Americans living in tent cities after losing their homes to foreclosure. Food pantries across the country are running out of food, as private donations are down significantly. Even those who want to donate can’t do it anymore.
What happened in New York today proves, as we’ve suggested in prior writings, that the Federal government is going to have to begin cutting essential services. In this case, it was politically driven, because the poor are not as powerful and organized a force as teachers’ unions. Soon, we’ll see even more cuts. We can expect state health care programs, food programs, housing programs and utility assistance programs running out of money.
Benefits and entitlements will be cut.
The uneducated in our society, people like Peggy Joseph, will soon realize that what they have been told is a complete fabrication:
The people will riot.
What we see in Georgia today is quite mild to what we can expect in the near future. These types of gatherings in major cities across the US will become larger, likely turn to riots, and become very violent. The people will turn on eachother – whites against blacks against hispanics against muslims against jews against christians against democrats against republicans against tea baggers against gays against straights against the rich against the poor.
All the while our benevolent politicians and their contributors will sip fine wines and dine on filet Mignon during a junket on Nancy Pelosi’s customized 757 C-32.
Division is and will continue to be one of the most powerful weapons in their arsenal.
