Via John Sexton, of Big Hollywood:
Saturday, Occupiers held a rally for “artists, musicians, writers and activists” midway between downtown LA and Beverly Hills. The website announcing the event promised a keynote speech by Van Jones and hinted at appearances by Hollywood celebrities.
Yesterday, Variety reported that Hollywood did turn out:
Edward Norton, Elijah Wood, Marisa Tomei and Jason Alexander turned out for “All in for the 99%,” an effort to engage artists and actors in promoting the “99% Spring,” a plan to train 100,000 volunteers in nonviolent action, including protests at corporate shareholder meetings. Van Jones, founder of Rebuild the Dream, has been promoting the plans, and addressed the group.
Here’s Jones’ speech. Note how the 9/11 truther who protested against the U.S. government on 9/12/2001, now says, “You don’t get to be the patriots” to no one in particular, attacking their “extreme ideology” because whoever they are – they’re not Communist revolutionaries like him. *spit*
