I have nothing to add other than when the weak become fearful, they start shooting and hitting.
Regardless of what you think about Keith Olbermann, elected leaders who choose to start arresting and repressing the pubic only fuels protesters. I’m not really sure why nobody teaches that in the “So you want to be a politician” classes these guys should be taking before they take an oath.
But they should.
Governing for Dummies. I wonder if that title exists?
The things that make us out here in Middle America pause, think, sympathize, fill with rage and then act:
- Book trashing
- Cops in paramilitary dress
- Arresting or restricting journalists’ access
- The use of “health and safety” laws for cover
- DHS involvement against American citizens
- ‘Freezing’ a public area
- Raids under cover of darkness
On February 27, 1968, Lyndon Johnson said, after watching a special report on CBS News by Walter Cronkite, “If I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost the American People.” We don’t have a Walter Cronkite, but we do have Internet that brings us these stories of elected officials abusing their power given them by the people who trusted them to govern. We can see for ourselves the lengths they are willing to go to in order to maintain the power of which they have long forgotten the source.
Mike Bloomberg, you are losing the American People, one middle-aged mutt at a time.
