Last month, Katherine Fuchs sent an e-mail to her inner circle advising them to purchase stock in Caterpillar, so that the forces of pro-Palestinian hatred could make a stink at the next shareholders meeting and force Caterpillar to divest and disassociate itself from Israel.
QUOTE: "...we're asking supporters of the Stop Caterkiller campaign to each purchase one share of Caterpillar stock before the end of the year.While it may seem odd for a group pushing for divestment to encourage purchasing Caterpillar stock, there is a method to our madness. The real point of shareholder divestment is to pressure the corporation to divest of it's activities in the area of concern"
Katherine M Fuchs is the National Organizer of the 'US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation', in case you were wondering.
Like most of the organizations on the extremist fringe, there is substantial overlap with any number of other organizations. So much so that the number of angry groups seems to precisely equal the number of gibbering individuals. But I digress.
Fellow blogger Infectious Asian recently took pains to point out some crucial mathematical verities concerning this weird stock plot.
"Even if every man, woman, and child, in the country bought one share, Katherine Fuchs dear, and assuming, just assuming, that ALL of those shares were turned towards your dastardly goal, your side still would not have enough stock to sway Caterpillar."
"Heck, whatever stock you dummies buy won't even get you one percent. You guys are pretty st00.000.000.000pid! Please notice that there are as many little round circle characters in how I spelled that word as there are in 300 billion dollars."
Infectious Asian finishes her cheerful ribbing of Katherine Fuchs and her bedmates by calling them a bunch of moronic weasels.
I couldn't have put it better myself.
