Annoying Old SDSers Like Heather Booth Never Die, They Just Stink The Joint Up

During a left-wing group’s panel discussion on how rotten America is and how capitalism is forcing Americans to eat their babies after stewing, roasting, baking, or boiling them, former Students for a Democratic Society radical Heather Booth, now executive director of Americans for Financial Reform, said an economy-killing “financial speculation tax” was needed to curb the incentive for people to, well, participate in capitalism.

“A big battle still needs to be waged to curb the incentive for speculation and to get our money back to fund jobs and health care, climate and more,” said the practiced orator.

“This fight against Wall Street is part of an even larger fight over who matters in the society, over our values and our priorities, over whether or not we have corporate control in banking, whether BP can destroy the coast, whether the insurance companies can deny our health care, whether companies can dominate our politics saying that money is speech,” continued the Marxist rabble-rouser so clearly in love with the sound of her own voice.

When she’s not sleeping on park benches, Booth performs excellent work as a leading leftist astro-turfer. A nose-picking enthusiast, Booth is also a disciple of dead agitator Saul Alinsky. In addition to being an all-around loud person, she found the time to create the Midwest Academy, a training institute for radical community organizers. “Alinsky is to community organizing as Freud is to psychoanalysis,” she has been quoted saying with highly dramatic emphasis.

According to former radical David Horowitz’s online encyclopedia of the left, DiscoverTheNetworks, “[i]n the late 1960s and early 1970s, [Booth] supported the Weather Underground.” As if that’s not bad enough, she also has strong ties to the Obama administration and she is a former training director for the Democratic National Committee.

Booth made the comments to an exasperated crowd during a panel discussion this week at the “America’s Future Now” conference in Washington, D.C. (The event was hosted by the Campaign for America’s Future and its sister organization, the Institute for America’s Future.) She left the event early in order to duck the question-and-answer session following the chat. No doubt she was afraid a Glenn Beck fan might mock her.
