Overview

Occupy: American Spring: The Making of a Revolution by Buck Sexton

Glenn Beck TV and Blaze correspondent Buck Sexton goes behind the scenes at Occupy Wall Street and explores the radical roots and revolutionary goals that lie beneath the not-so-ragtag movement.

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) became the biggest news story in the world during the fall of 2011. Under the banner of the "99%", the Occupiers spread their message of class warfare and revolution across the globe.
     Using cutting-edge digital media propaganda combined with the street protest strategies honed by 1960s radicals, OWS has already changed our political system.
     Now they seek to change our future.
     The American Spring has arrived. The Occupiers plan to dominate news headlines by using direct action protests across the country during this pivotal presidential election year. They intend to take to the streets in every major U.S. city. The stakes could not be higher.
     Buck Sexton, a former CIA counterterrorism and counterinsurgency analyst, has covered the Occupiers from the start. He’s infiltrated their marches and "general assemblies" at every major OWS event to uncover the truth about this neo-Marxist movement. With a focus on history, ideology and tactics, Sexton breaks down OWS—and its plans for reshaping America.

Considering the length of these two "reviews", I get the distinct feeling that these two "reviewers" didn't actually read the book. Saying it was "self-serving" gives no insights as to why it is such. Telling you not to read it, or that it is a waste of time hardly justifies your not doing so. I plan on reading it, so I won't fake a review and say, "A must read for all intelligent Americans!" I DID give it 5 stars to help off-set the 1 stars.

Hard-hitting and direct reporting of the confusion, the selfishness, and the choices so many have made to be angry and to consider themselves victims. Once again, a loud minority demands someone else do something about their lives - they know not how to create, but they can and will destroy. This has never been productive, yet they are sold to the public as "unselfish" and "good," when they are anything but. Here's a good look at the face of evil, a face which thinks "the world owes me a living." What's worse, their chaos disrupts investigation into very real abuses of economic and political trust.

Easy to read. Scary to think how the original protesters goals have become so corrupted. For the doudters I would tell you to check the sources he sites. Every one in America should read this.

An engaging read. Mr. Sexton is unafraid to tell the truth; calling a duck a duck. The occupy movement is being used for more sinister ends. The useful idiots march on.

Full of COMPLETE lies and bias. If you want to read something that's actually accurate on the goals of OWS, read The Occupy Manifesto. It's short, free, and straight to the point.
