This misadministration’s loyal, snakeskin-bootlicking minions are oh-so-busy keeping us safe from dangerously compassionate nuns and grandmas with butter knives; routing our private phone calls through secret rooms; preparing to read our brainwaves, knock us to the ground, and throw us into camps or psych wards – but never fear! The folks in Denver and St. Paul found the time to keep us safe from *us* too.
Since Rachel and Keith were stuck at the table, few in (our worse than worthless) corporate media were left to cover what was happening *outside* the hallowed halls of Campaigns Central, and those few who tried were duly rewarded punished.
It warms wrenches my heart to hear that law enforcement in Denver arrested a major TV network producer for trespassing *on a public sidewalk* [thanks for trying, dood!], that one of those pesky little CodePink women was bashed to the ground by the big bad he-man, and that cops entrapped and whupped on peaceful protestors.
None of that really held a candle to the level of oppression and abuse that surrounded the RNC venue, where the goon-squads warmed up early by illegally seizing video equipment and other personal property from law-abiding visitors before the big CON had even started. They also burst into rented offices and private homes armed with assault rifles (all the better to terrorize the kiddies, donchaknow), wreaking havoc, seizing materials, and arresting organizers — citizens of the disUnited States of America who had properly applied for and received permits from the city in a perfectly legal, timely manner. That mattered not.
“Vee VILL haff ORDER here!”
During the CON job, Amy Goodman, her crew, and other journalists were grabbed for bravely attempting to do their jobs; while inside, Ron Paul delegates were tailed and harassed, and their convention materials confiscated. “You can’t bring that in here, this is McCain territory.” Let us pause for an irony moment to let that sink in……
Yes, it’s true: the Reptilian-brained don’t even believe in freedoms of speech and assembly at THEIR OWN CONVENTION. (Keeping our so-called democracy safe from democracy?)
Heh, I feel safer. :::koff::: Neotheofascist freaks, I got yer “purple finger” right here……
Let Freedom Wring!
