Star Parker, a conservative American columnist and author, said the Wall Street protestors are rising up as a left-wing response to the Tea Party.
In a message to her supporters, Star Parker said that many people who consider themselves a member of the Tea Party are attending the protests because they're angry about bank bailouts and government spending but warned them not to attend. Parker said the true motives of the protestors are 'sinister' and that they hold Marxist economic values despite protesting the bank bailouts, which many conservatives also opposed.
"The Marxists who are dressing up as patriots have every design to eliminate the Tea Party movement," Parker wrote. "These liberals are really fighting because we're demanding the government to cut spending and limit the reach of government rather than raise our taxes. They will never accept that. Instead, they're demanding higher taxes, not just on Wall Street, but for everyone. These aren't protests against corruption. These are tax-raising rallies and they're using Tea Partiers to push this agenda."
Parker, who is African-American, added that she sees an agenda from the protestors that she's familiar with inside the black community. "They're telling all of us to blame the bankers for the problems in our country," she said. "It works because it's too easy to blame someone else for the problems around us."
For seven years, Star Parker lived on and off of welfare, used drugs and admitted to having several abortions. In her biography, "Pimps, Whores and Welfare Brats", she explains how she was led to a Christian conversion which changed her life. She then went to college and obtained a college degree and now runs a think-tank in Washington, DC that focuses on personal responsibility and free enterprise as policy solutions to problems in society.
"For 50 years, the Left has broken down the black community and now has millions of Americans addicted to the government," Parker said. "Black families used to value work and stay married, but then liberals created handouts and told them they don't need to look after themselves anymore. Instead they told Americans who struggled through history to 'stop trying, we'll give you what you deserve'."
Parker believes government hand-outs lead people to stop working, stop looking for work, and depend on the government to survive by relating to her own experience on welfare. In her warning to Tea Party members, Parkers explains how the black community disintegrated into "broken homes, children who never graduated from school, black young men heading to prison instead of starting a family, a third of black babies aborted and poverty and misery that spreads like disease."
Parker said she plans to attend New York City soon and speak to the black community and churches in the area about the protests. She told her supporters that she plants to "tell the truth and liberate Americans who are mesmerized by the liberals' poisonous words."
Star Parker is the president and founder of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education.
