Who is making anonymous robocalls across the nation that seemingly support the Occupy movement?
Ever since the Occupy movement started to get noticed by the national media there have been reports of people receiving robocalls in a variety of locations.
Here is one from IL 10.29.2011 and another one sent this week in the San Fransisco area (click on the links to listen to the audio of the call).
The interesting thing is that no one seems to be taking responsibility for the call. Most political calls have the following aspects to them (if they are legitimate):
Caller ID and Call identification. The incoming phone number is legitimate and is clearly identified to the recipient.
Disclosure. The call, usually at the end of the call, clearly states who is paying for the call and on which candidates behalf. Think: "Paid for by Obama for America, Chicago, IL"Call to action. The call usually asks the recipient to do something. To vote, mostly.
But these calls do not have these attributes.Here is the transcript from the most recent call in California.
This Thanksgiving, we need to figure out what
liberty and justice for all really mean. Consider these facts: the big
banks have foreclosed our homes, shipped our jobs overseas, and are
sitting on over $10 trillion dollars while our nation goes bankrupt.
Like the president of the Federal Reserve Bank said in New York, "Too
big to fail banks are too dangerous to permit." We, the 99%, can make a
difference. Call the White House, Congress, and City Hall. Tell them
that liberty and justice for all means breaking up the big banks and
jailing the Wall Street con-men.
As you can see there is, kind of, a call to action "call the White House, Congress, and City Hall to break up the big banks and jail the Wall Street con men".So, does anyone have a clue who is behind these calls?
