Today on Family Talk James Dobson spoke with conservative author and columnist Rebecca Hagelin, a past vice president of the Heritage Foundation, about how the Occupy Wall Street is the un-American heir of the 1960s anti-war and feminist movements. Kyle noted earlier today that Dobson argued that Occupy Wall Street is “Marxist in tone and implementation,” and he said on today’s broadcast that the economic justice movement shared the “chaos” and “godless” features of protests from the 1960s.
Hagelin contended that Van Jones orchestrated Occupy Wall Street, calling him “one of the most radical individuals in American culture today, whose purpose is to overthrow timeless values and our American system of a republic and a democracy.” Hagelin added that Occupy Wall Street is “as dangerous as we think it is” because its goal is “the complete overthrow of the United States constitution.”
Dobson: There is kind of a linkage between the Occupy movement, Occupy Wall Street and Oakland and other places, and what was going on then, where there just was chaos and it was also godless.
Hagelin: That’s right, it’s the same worldview that was behind the women in the 1960s demanding the ability to abort their children and burning their bras and saying they want to abolish the institution of marriage, it’s the same worldview as behind the Occupy Wall Street movement today and a lot of the same people, quite frankly. One of the key players behind this movement is Van Jones, who we know is a socialist, who we know is one of the most radical individuals in American culture today, whose purpose is to overthrow timeless values and our American system of a republic and a democracy.
Dobson: Is that as dangerous as it looks to those of us who are out there trying to earn a living and to follow some rules, the rule of law?
Hagelin: It is absolutely as dangerous as we think it is, because the end result could be nothing less than the complete overthrow of the United States constitution.
