Peter Schiff exposes a TEA Party fatal flaw at Occupy Wall Street

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, October 30, 2011

In a YouTube video entitled “Peter Schiff nails Wall Street Protesters,” Peter Schiff asks one of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators the following question – verbatim: “Wouldn’t you like to get in the 1%? You don’t want more money?

By asking that question, Mr. Schiff makes a very critical error. In fact, it’s a very simple one to understand. Not everyone will be the 1%. By adding more to the category identified as “the 1%,” it suddenly becomes more than 1%.

As the video progresses, Mr. Schiff continues rhetorically down that deeply and fundamentally flawed path, so that by the end of the video, the conclusions he infers from the statements he makes seem to make reasonable, rational and logical sense. They are, however, founded upon logically flawed premises.

I posit that most viewers would not even casually consider such a blatant problem.

Video follows the break.

Further, aside from a purely rhetorical perspective, there is the issue of the acknowledgement Jesus Christ made, which was “the poor you will always have with you.” The issue of Jesus Christ’s claims to divinity aside, that one saying of Christ speaks volumes. It acknowledges a condition that will persist – and yet, it neither excuses nor justifies inattention, nor inaction.

As well, it’s a Satanic seducing siren song, one that says, “Yes… you too, can be RICH!” That lure was used in the Garden of Eden when Satan spoke through the serpent and deceived Eve by saying, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Especially problematic is that there are “Christian” fundamentalists whose teaching – which could only loosely be termed as “theology” – says, in essence, that the more you deny the negative, and speak the positive (whatever it may be) that it must come to you – that, in essence, God is obliged to give it to you. In other words, those Protestants teach that God MUST give it to you simply because you – as I say – “twist His arm.” You are not reliant upon His mercy, but rather force your will upon Him. In essence, we become our own god. We become idolators, worshiping ourselves because of what we can give ourselves. But then, in essence, that makes us some type of terrorist, bent on our way, rather than His. Such belief has been popularized by Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Oral Roberts, and other such ilk. Some may know this as their “Blab it and grab it” teaching.

And yet, if you – like me – ask “Who is Peter Schiff?,” you may also be interested in knowing that he is one of the radicals whom identify as being part of the Utopian idealists whose motivational ideals come from the ivory-towered theorists who espose the “Austrian school of economics,” which innervates the TEA Party movement, which has also hijacked the Republican party.

Wikipedia identifies Peter Schiff – whom was born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth, and was educated at Berkley – hails from New England, and is an “American businessman, author and financial commentator,” and “CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc., a broker-dealer based in Westport, Connecticut and CEO of Euro Pacific Precious Metals, LLC, a gold and silver dealer based in New York City.”

Mr. Peter Schiff cites his father as a significant influence upon his political theory, as well as Ludwig von Mises – founder of the so-called “Austrian School of Economics.” Interestingly, Mr. Peter Schiff’s father, Irwin – a minor author, whose most notable works circulate around the idea that income taxation is illegal in the United States – has been convicted numerous times of crimes involving income tax – for himself, and others – and is presently serving time in federal prison for a conviction of income tax evasion.

And those are the people whom have hijacked the Republican party, and whom would enslave you with their deceptive words… yes, you too can be rich.

Do not believe their lies.
