  •  Excellent diary, Resa. (6+ / 0-)

    The Democracy Now video is chilling.

    Watching the video I had a surreal thought: what I was watching in St. Paul looked like elaborate Kabuki theater with hoards of black-clad thugs marching through St. Paul (and I'm not talking about the black bloc anarchists), a kind-of morality play designed for the RNC delegates to make them more fearful and solidify their support for the war on whatever.

    Can't quite get my finger on the right words. I am convinced that the excessive display of force was very intentional but I'm not sure "we" were the intended audience, just supporting players.

    We have to get a handle on this somehow. Violence always breeds more violence. What's not to get about that?

    Please post links to this diary in the Open Threads on the front page. More people need to see this. Palin in a distraction.
