Alex Jones amongst fans and followers at Friday evening's "End the Fed" rally
Friday evening, two groups of protesters, Occupy Dallas and Occupy the Federal Reserve, lined opposite side of N. Pearl Street at Woodall Rodgers in front of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. "We got sold out, Feds got bailed out!" Occupy Dallas protesters shouted in unison on the west side of Pearl. And, all around them, the Occupy the Federal Reserve crowd -- consisting of fans and followers of Dallas-born, Austin-based radio-show host Alex Jones -- had their own mantra: "End the Fed, End the Fed!"

It's tough to say whose crowd was bigger -- probably around 200 on both sides. Police said the protesters had been peaceful; only one person's been arrested since the Occupy Dallas folks began their demonstrating Thursday morning. "They're well-behaved, so that helps a lot," said Sergeant Thomas Fry, scanning the crowd.

Jones -- the 9/11 truther, a man who recently called the Gates Foundation "obviously a eugenics operation," the street preacher in Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly and, to a few, a resurrected Bill Hicks -- grabbed a megaphone a little after 6 p.m. "A hundred years of these scumbag bankers is a hundred years too long," he yelled.

"I love you, Alex!" a voice carried over the crowd.

"I love you guys. You're the only prayer we've got," Jones yelled back.

Sweat seeped through Jones's blue button-down shirt. He shook hands as he pushed through the crowd to meet a reporter for a Christian news show. "If the devil lives anywhere in the world, it's in the Federal Reserve banks," Jones said. "The whole thing is just a ridiculous scheme, and it's time people know about it."

"Let's go kick some ass, Alex," someone screamed. "Give 'em hell!" Nearby, someone held a sign that read, "The government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul."

"These are the people killing off humanity," someone shouted into a megaphone on the sidewalk at the foot of the Federal Reserve Bank skyscraper. "These are the people that funded Adolf Hitler and the Communists. ... They are pure evil."

"It's legalized theft," said Brooke Kelley, a "truth fairy" attired in a tutu and wings. She said she was fed up with the government taking money from taxpayers to pay private banks. "We don't have to take it."

"J.P. Morgan is now dead, here today we end the Fed," Arby Branch, a freshman at the University of North Texas, screamed into a megaphone. Wearing a Bob Marley shirt and a long skirt, she bounced around the scene. Salvador Vasquez joined in, wearing a button-down shirt and waving his arms and grabbing at his glasses.

"It's private individuals subsidized on the backs of public citizens," said Vasquez, a barber and former fifth-grade teacher who drove to Dallas from Austin for the protest. "The problem isn't capitalism. ... Wall Street is just a function of banks."

"I'm actually here with Occupy Dallas," said Branch, who had crossed the street to mingle among the Occupy the Fed group. "We're all the 99 percent," she added, meaning, of course, that they're not among the 1 percent of the wealthiest Americans.

"I'm sick of the same old shit," she said. "I'm just ready for people to put out new ideas."

"Do you want to do another chorus with me?" Vasquez asked her.

"Sure."

"Rockefeller is now dead, here today we end the Fed," they shouted.

A cop told Branch she had to move. "We were getting a nice groove," Vasquez said as Branch walked away. Then, from a median in the street, once again, louder: "Rockefeller is now dead., here today we end the Fed!"

Hey genuises why don't we just re-start communism. Whereby we reallocated all monies and resources so that every individual has the exact same share. That's exactly what marxism and communism was suppose to do. What makes this country great is that you have the opportunity to do anything you want. Not all rich people are bad people or obtained their wealth thru bad ways. Its a very small percentage. Agreed the printing of dollars needs to slow but be careful what you wish for.

make up your own mind and try listening to Alex Jones at www.infowars.com

In My opinion I listened and looked into the things Alex talks about and lo and behold he was right.

For example he says the government runs the drugs and guns for the mexican cartels: years later we find out about "fast and furious". Thats just one example there are thousands of others.

Alex Jones exposed the crimes of Waco: google Wake Up Or Waco. Then it comes out later that yes the government DID kill those people on purpose.

Alex Jones is a true American hero!!

I'm one who never paid much attention to what I call Conspiracy Nuts. Until the day I saw, on a national news program, the same video I had seen two years earlier from the mother of a friend who I thought fit the description. It was the video we all saw of what happened at Waco..Now, fast forward to 9-11. Again, I heard all the Nuts saying it was an inside job. Only, since I've begun looking into it myself, I find that a lot of those "Nuts" are engineers, and pilots. What lead me to start looking into 9-11 was Fast and Furious. If the government is capable of pulling that kind of garbage, what else would they do?I listen to Alex Jones, despite the fact that he can get a bit rowdy. But I also listen to the NRA news program, Cam and Company. I don't have T.V. anymore, so these places are where I get my news. And quite often, they overlap. As for Cam and Company, yes, they have spots talking about guns, but they were also the first ones to follow the story on Fast and Furious. These days, you're hearing about that one all over the place, but Cam and Co. was on it a good six or seven months ago, when the rest of them were waiting to see what happened before they stuck their toes in the water. As for Alex and his Occupy the Fed movement, that isn't nutty at all. Had we had a branch where I live, I would have been there. If you find Alex to be a bit over the top, do your own research on the topics he's covering.I know this much, those people at the top are living a pot load better than I am, and I'm one of many helping to fund them, whether I choose to or not...

Drove by this on Friday, and saw the crowd marching through the city on Saturday. Could not believe how many people showed up, it is really quite incredible.

I'm not sure why what they were wearing was mentioned in this article, if not only to continue stereotypes. So what if they're wearing Bob Marley shirts under their pantsuits, and who hasn't been sweating in this humidity? It doesn't make their voices any less important.

End fiat currency.  End the Fed.  FACT: The Federal Reserve is a cartel of private banking corporations which lend money to the United States. It is touted as if it were a Government Agency. IT IS NOT. The Federal Reserve Bank, through its inflation of the money supply and the distortion of free markets resulting from its intervention, is responsible for the current financial and economic crisis. The current round of "bailouts" and federal government nationalization of large segments of the financial sector further inflates the US dollar and disrupts the proper funtioning of the markets and will ultimately serve to plunge the nation into an even more severe crisis, quite possibly even into a serious depression. Our goal should be to educate Americans so we can have a sound monetary system in this country, and not be held at gunpoint by a private banking cartel who pretends to be a government entity.

completely agree. 

the spin on this article illustrates part of what's wrong in this country.  the end the fed movement is not about Alex Jones - whether you like him or hate him is irrelevant.  While I don't participate in the Occupy Wall Street movement, I will continue to support the End the Fed movement.

Alex Jones should stick to writing fiction from some off-the-grid cabin in northern Idaho.

THIS is the reason I have not gotten involved or supported the Occupy Movement so far. Alex Jones is a self-aggrandizing paranoid lunatic whose sole purpose is to shill his wares to the gullible. Micro Plant Powder? Cal Ben Soap? Iodine Protection Paks anyone? Please! I have considerable resources and time, but will not donate either as long as Alex Jones is even remotely associated to the Occupy Movement. Alex Jones has poisoned the well and I'm embarrassed for anyone who has fallen under his spell.

You know that was just what I pointed out to a Tea Party friend/member about how Dick Army (former U. S. Republican House Majority Leader) and the Freedom Works and the undue influence that those nuts brought to the Tea Party Table.   He of course denied it but……If it looks like a duck and quacks like one.   But then again there are none so blind than those who do not wish to see (or reason).

The Tea Party calls economic slavery imposed by corporations freedom, and sees social justice as a great injustice.

Alex Jones and the rest of the Tard Party don't even have the decency to take a break while the rest of us try to recover from their deceptive rhetoric and counterproductive policies.

The interest rate on a 10 year treasury note is near a record low. The real unemployment rate is at a historic high.

We should borrow money at low interest rates to rebuild our infrastructure and economy. In order to do this, we'll have to turn our backs on the corporate lackies known as the Tea Party, and try our best not to be distracted by Alex Jones' phony conspiracy theories.

One important note for everyone who read this is, the Federal Reserve is a private foreign bank that print our money and loan it to us with interest. Their notes are not backed by anything but the paper its printed on. we need to end this system and bring back our national treasury and print our own money and have it backed by silver and gold like it use to be before the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.

Jesus, this movement had something...until Alex Jones showed up. That man is one enchilada short of a combo plate and has been for years. I used to hear his show on KJFK years ago in austin and could tell you he was totally off his rocker then. If it wasnt his rants on black helicopters hovering over his house or that central texas was becoming a UN staging ground, it was the schilling for gold bullion or survivalist supplies. It's been the same blowhard tinfoil hat arguments he's engaged in for years...

See short video of a portion of the Oversight and Investigation hearing involving the Inspector General.  Rep. Alan Grayson asks the  Federal Reserve Inspector General why there is 9 TRILLION DOLLARS MISSING FROM THE FEDERAL RESERVE--she says she does not know and is not tracking where the money is.

This is the revolution, people recognizing and standing up against the true enemy of humanity. The Federal Reserve is exposed for the ultimate evil blood sucking parasitical vampire it truly is,  feeding on the backs of the American people. The American people are standing up and saying....ENOUGH! We want our Freedoms and Liberties back. We are not slaves.  We are sovereign citizens of the United States of America and for the Republic for which it stands.

Leslie may not have much knowledge of Alex Jones and the reason why he was in Dallas so if she is reading these comments she is probably wondering what everyone is talking about. Alex is an independent investigative journalist who has tied the collapse of the American economy to the central world private bank that has 12 branches in the USA called the federal reserve. Watch the movie Freedom to Facsim by Aaron Russo and that will give everyone insight as to why Alex was there protesting.

I've watched some of Jones' shows (for pure entertainment). He'll make one decent point and then jump off into some fucking completely batshit crazy paranoid conclusion. He was also at the Tea Party shit downtown last year (My buddy and I protested the protest) whipping those guys into a frenzy.

We need to get ride of the msm (main stream media). They are the ones who are brain washing yuppys and continue the end the fed campaign. Although we don't want them to kill us all. And yes they are satinist's. It's called the illuminati aka the o.t.o established by crowsley. People need to do there research and stand up to this crap or we really will be either dead or even worse slaves.

This article is so typically twisted & bogus. I was there, the crowd that votes for Obama & blames Capitalism & Corporations on the other side was half as big as the so called "Alex Jones" crowd. Of course that group got the attention & gave the retard interviews. They don't seem to care why corporations are more prevalent then ever before & their links with government & market monopolies which are more socialist than capitalist. True capitalism embraces free market principals which encourage competition & punish greed in a natural consistent manor. We were protesting "money printing" by a "private bank" who calls itself Federal. Simple, did you get that? Many of us enjoy Alex show not because we agree with everything he says or worship or follow him, but because he actually grasps what's really happening with the Fed. The Dallas Observor not unlike other similar publications in other cities has done another stand up job of misinforming & misrepresenting reality. Always supporting the causes & ideologies of collectivism & attempting to take the focus off individual rights. Its not the economy its the money printing stupid, it always has been.

It was more like 30 OccupyDallas and 300 Occupy the Fed people.  The Occupy Dallas folks should start calling themselves the 09% becuase they allienated the other 90% of the movement on Friday night.  OccupyDallas should be ASHAMED of themselves,,,so much for their "Solidarity" LIE.  OccupyDallas is a MoveON Soros front group used to steer the real anger of the American People in false directions,,,

By standing ACROSS the street chanting for the End the Fed folks to "go home, you 're not wanted here" 90% in front of the FED, 09% ACROSS the Street protesting the 90% and the ONE %, looking down on both from above, LAUGHING at the peasents fighting among themselves,,, 

OCCUPY DALLAS is about including everyone (Unless you are a Progressive leaning Libertarian Ron Paul supporter)

well ron paul has an anarchocapitalist agenda, if im not to be mistaken. considering that, this movement is a far run from that idealism so i can see the inherent ideological differences though seperate and divide comes to mind. Another point is the 99% movement is trying to keeo any celebs from stamping their face on the movement. i dont support ron paul for various policy reasons all the way down to including his publications. but i serverly disagrre with obamas domestic and foriegn policies as well. the consesus is government has failed us. now some people think the failure is a more recent thing, for people like me the failure started with an illegal occupation of the land now called america. 1776 is not an answer to 1984 as 1776 was still a horrible year for most of all human life not to mention the expected length of life was around 40.

They are prejudicial bigots, just like Pat Boyack, who has never met me but can make a blanket statement like "Ron Paul supporters, HaHaHaHa,,,," You guys don't like Ron Paul? Why? because he has been talking about this stuff for Decades?  OccupyDallas, OWS, The FLEA Party, all of it, They only like you if you are uber - left,,, As proven by Pat's comment.  What if Pat was to say "Oh you Gay People supporters, HaHaHa,,,"  Then it would be wrong and bigotted, but because someone is a Ron Paul / AJ supporter they are automatically "Kooks" and it is ok to dog them?,,, Occupy Dallas are Hypocrits,,, New Kids on the Block manipulated to re-elect Obumer, the MOST WALL STREET PRESIDENT EVER!!!
