It's A Wonderful Communist Occupation

We were in the mood for It's A Wonderful Life again and in light of #OWS, I though a little trivia was germane.  10 years before they started spying on Dr King, the FBI was busy worrying about Gabriel, er...Clarence the Communist:

With regard to the picture "It's a Wonderful Life", [redacted] stated in substance that the film represented rather obvious attempts to discredit bankers by casting Lionel Barrymore as a "scrooge-type" so that he would be the most hated man in the picture. This, according to these sources, is a common trick used by Communists.

In addition, [redacted] stated that, in his opinion, this picture deliberately maligned the upper class, attempting to show the people who had money were mean and despicable characters.

They're just lucky the movie didn't--and #OWS won't--end this way...

Proving once more that J Edgar was a horrible cross-dressing toad of a person.

Every time an OWS protester gets a donated pizza, J Edgar gets buggered by a demon.
