  •  It's such a standard-issue lie (26+ / 0-)

    before every single US gahering of the so-called "anti-globalization" movement, the police would roll out this lie about feces and urine.  Also lots of other demonstrations, the same BS.  Look, I've been involved in organizing demonstrations for over 30 years.  Since this lie started popping up 15-20 years ago, it has become more and more predictably part of the arsenal of lies of those you depend on to keep your society running smoothly and homestly.  Not once, not a single time, not even as a joke riffing on this BS, have I  ever heard someone suggesting demostrators bring urine and feces to throw, yet every fucking time the professional liars in  blue troll this out to justify preemptive crackdowns on public protest.

    NOTE:  Unlike the words "well-regulated militia", the words "time, place and manner" do NOT appear in the Bill of Rights.  The Second Amendment is conditional, the First Amendment is unconditional, though you'd never know that listening to the cops, the gunnies, the right-wingers and the lawyers, and the political classes that serve those interests and no others.

    Clap On, Clap Off, The Clapper!

    •  One suspects a lot of adverse potty training is (7+ / 0-)

      to blame. Imaginary bottles of feces and urine are being thrown back at the memory of mommies who spanked for making a mess.

      I can remember the last time I shat in my bed. I must have been well over two and woke from a nap to discover I'd been tied in my bed and couldn't get out to get to the potty. So, I did it where I was. I fully expected to get punished. But, when my mother finally came back from her trip to the forest (to collect berries or firewood or whatever), she was actually apologetic. It wasn't until I was a mother that the idea of tying a child in bed and going off for hours struck me as really irresponsible. But then, on some level, I'd known that for a long time and just repressed it. Having an irresponsible parent is a scary situation. The children of alcoholic parents repress that, as well. Living with fear.
