Soon this Republican convention will be over. Was it just me, or did anyone else notice? Didn’t this look like the whitest crowd we’ve seen this side of the “Triumph of the Will” Nuremburg rally?
Soon Mordor in Minnesota will have finished its evil rites and its legions of authoritarians will march into the countryside to spread their message of fear and hatred.
Their convention ends, but not before leaving us with a shocking vision of their idea of law and order.
Local police and sheriffs, working with the FBI, (So you know this was instigated by Republicans in Washington DC) conducted preemptive searches, seizures and arrests.
Glenn Greenwald described the taste of American Fascism received by those who were planning on peaceful protest.
"Teams of 25-30 officers in riot gear, with semi-automatic weapons drawn, entering homes of those suspected of planning protests, handcuffing and forcing them to lay on the floor, while law enforcement officers searched the homes, seizing computers, journals, and political pamphlets."
Here is what was reported by Marjorie Cohn at CounterPunch.
The raids targeted members of "Food Not Bombs," an anti-war, anti-authoritarian protest group that provides free vegetarian meals every week in hundreds of cities all over the world. They served meals to rescue workers at the World Trade Center after 9/11 and to nearly 20 communities in the Gulf region following Hurricane Katrina.
Also targeted were members of I-Witness Video, a media watchdog group that monitors the police to protect civil liberties. The group worked with the National Lawyers Guild to gain the dismissal of charges or acquittals of about 400 of the 1,800 who were arrested during the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York. Preemptive policing was used at that time as well. Police infiltrated protest groups in advance of the convention.
Nestor said that no violence or illegality has taken place to justify the arrests. “Seizing boxes of political literature shows the motive of these raids was political,” he said.
Anyone even THINKING of photographing the demonstrations were targeted as enemies of the fascist state. Thought Crime is no longer a dark vision of 1984. It is now a tool of Amerikan totalitarianism.
All those right wing fanatics gathered in one place seemed to have released dark and evil emanations into the atmosphere. The Thought Police flew off into a kind of pheromone induced frenzy of beatings and arrests. They passionately indulged in their love of police state brutality. The Republicans’ SS inspired uniformed thugs relished their opportunity to put the boot to the public’s throat.
They are vanguard in the streets of Johnny McTorture’s gestating New Reich Order.
What kind of monstrous despotic thinking has brought us to this horrible state?
Maybe we can find clue in what the authoritarian Right has said.
"God gave this President and this President's Party one more chance. God heard the fervent prayers of millions of values voters to keep His hand on America one more time." -- Paul Weyrich, Heritage Foundation founder and Washington Times columnist
"Thank God that George Bush is our president." -- Rudy Giuliani
"George Bush is a leader for our times. When we sing 'God Bless America,' it is a prayer, and I believe this person is part of God's answer." -- U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman
"'I feel like God wants me to run for President. I can't explain it, but I sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen... I know it won't be easy on me or my family, but God wants me to do it." - George W. Bush
And this is from our new Reich Mistress Queen Sarah. “Pray for our military. Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right for this country - that our leaders, our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God."
As the swastika adorned belt buckles of the Wehrmacht said, “Gott mit Uns”.
Yes. God with us.
The unholy crusade of Sarah McChurchlady is now unleashed on what little remains of our freedom and democracy.
This leaves me asking this simple question.
Why does God hate America?
