  •  "coordinated" is the salient point, exactly. (8+ / 0-)

    Hoover's FBI ran protest suppression schemes, sometimes with local police help, and the authorities have done it since the Pinkerton's against labor since the 1880s.

    This is a new level of coordination between Big Money, and Federal and Local Police. That it happens in a context where every single electronic communication each and every American Citizen Suspect is monitored chills democracy to an unprecedented extent.

    Goebbels, Stalin, and the Stasi all weep in hell from envy at what our Security State can do to democracy now.

    The Internet is just the tail of the Corporate Media dog.
