Brad Schneider Progressively Occupied

While his handlers in Washington, DC attempt to portray him as a moderate choice in the 10th Illinois Congressional District, Brad Schneider goes to the far extreme left to laud the Occupy Wall Street and Occupy America astroturf movements.  Taking over a corner of LaSalle Street and Jackson Boulevard in Chicago, the paid astroturfers have six months later dwindled to one or two, holding up signs paid for by various labor unions.

The Illinois Republican Party has taken note and Mr. Schneider's spoken words on this subject are now the subject of a new advertisement:



Even "You Didn't Build That" President Barak Obama has shied away from this astroturf "movement" after dipping his toes in support.

I've been scouting around.  It seems that Brad Schneider is the only candidate running for office who is that extremely enamored of this astroturf movement.

  1. Well I think this video begins to answer one facet of the question about who is Brad Schneider, what does he think speaks to the future of our country and the 10th District. This guy seems to have no original thoughts and just parrots the far left talking points. Whoa, not in this district.

  2. Ya this will not fly in the 10th. Brad, here's a tip: don't support radical movements and then call yourself a moderate. Don't condone violence and anti-Semitism and class warfare and then say you're pro-business.

  3. Listen to what Mr. Schneider says in the video, without looking at the images that were superimposed by the Illinois Republican Party, and you will realize that almost everyone in this country agrees with him. He says that the tax code is unfair, that the middle class has not been dealt fairly with, that the too-big-to-fail bank bailouts were not good, and that people should speak out. That's democracy. What part of what Mr. Schneider said don't you agree with?

  4. Are you kidding? It's one thing to speak up about the tax code, it's also a fair discussion we should have about bailouts in general. It's a totally, completely other discussion to hear Brad Schneider applaud the tactics, the bozarre antics, the anti-American rhetoric coming from those who lead the now failing Occupy Wall St. movement. Brad Schneider does NOT say one thing about the manner in which they have conducted themselves in their protests. I would have appreciated hearing what Brad would say about HIS solutions to these issues rather than hear him say, IN HIS OWN WORDS, that he applauds them and the way they are getting us to talk about their protests. If YOU believe how that thankfully now dying movement made their case then it's obvious how you view civil discourse.

  5. Listen again. In this 44 second clip Mr. Schneider did not "applaud the tactices, the bozarre antics, the anti-American rhetoric". All he said was that he applauded the Occupy movement for getting people talking about the issues. As you pointed out, he did not say one thing in this 44 second clip "about the manner in which they have conducted themselves in their protests." So, as I pointed out above, if you listen to what Mr. Schneider said, and don't get taken in by sensational video which he had nothing to do with and was not asked about, you see that most Americans agree with Mr. Schneider. Now, if you want to see bizarre footage of screaming people with painted faces, funny clothes, and offensive signs, just go online and search for "Tea Party."

  6. "Don't condone violence and anti-Semitism and class warfare and then say you're pro-business." are you really accusing Brad Schneider, a Jew who has worked with many jewish organizations and is active in the jewish community of being anti-Semetic? I'm shocked.
