Criticism of the Fed seems fair enough. However, the call to abolish the Federal Reserve and central banking entirely has come solely from the far-right of the American political spectrum. As we know, with right-wing extremism comes violence and racism. Unfortunately, the general public is not familiar with convoluted economic issues, and less informed Occupy protestors have been duped into supporting this pro-elite red herring. To fight this, word needs to be spread about the dark history of the “END THE FED” movement, one sprinkled with anti-Semitism, neo-Nazis, anti-government militia extremists, and even domestic terrorists. We need more awareness of the violent and racist elements that “END THE FED” brings to OWS.
