If you are still a human being and have been watching youtube and the g20 summit, your skin should be crawling. (links at bottom) Watch the way the arm of the law moves like one giant club-wielding organism, with the responsibility distributed throughout many different badges; sent on paid break when a civilian head is CAUGHT being pummeled, only when public opinion and outcry calls for the officers head,…though again, they will instead be handed his badge, for a week, so he can go on vacation and think about what he did. Look at the rage focused on independent camera men.
Understand that this isn’t the first time police cars have been “abandoned” for hours during similar protests, this is a tactic of inciting the people on themselves to justify the budget.
When I see this, this hostility towards my fellow man, I feel terrorized; this is terrorism in action.
That is fear in the demonstrators eyes. This is not fox news, this has not been filtered of reality from behind a plasma screen. This is what modern protest looks like. A group of paid mercenary thugs, armed with the latest in body armor, pepper spray, rubber bullets, and then hand guns when shit gets too hot to handle. They pluck individuals one by one from the front line, pushing the group further and further back, intimidating those citizens left out there, still willing to sacrifice their time and efforts, into acquiescing to the couch to shut the fuck up and further consume.
the media will report on the actions of “the anarchist.” But you will never hear an actual grievance on fox news, you will never see protesters asked, “Why did you come all the way here?”
No, you will hear the total number of arrests, the budget, that a trash barrel was burned at so and so, and a window smashed,… you will never read,
“A young man smashed the window of a Starbucks to protest the fact that almost every penny you spend on Starbucks goes out of the country to help promote deforestation and modern slave labor.” Or,
“We here at fox news are live and in the street, finding out what makes these young people so angry. Sir, can you explain to me what “free trade” means to you?”
“Sir, can you detail quickly for us why you fear globalization so militantly?”
Will you bother to question the plutocratic opulence which was bestowed on the illustrious 20/8?
If you need an idea of how big and pervasive, psychological and orchestrated it is, please, watch this video,
or this one,
This last video, Black bloc in toronto, with respect to truth and impartial reporting, was shot intending to depicting what is referred to as the black bloc, and while I feel some of the young peoples remarks are editorializing the situation a bit unfortunately, it shows clearly the furor and passion felt in juxtaposition of the stoic professionalism of the storm troopers, and can be viewed essentially as the primal cousin of the Internets “anonymous”, though instead of trading in borderline child porn and wasting time in an office, they under take direct action with intent of leaving a physical scar on the cities which have allowed summits like this to convene, to show, physically, to the world, the pains which they feel the institutions they attack are perpetrating on the world. In their worldview, it is sick and unpardonable to sip an espresso at Starbucks, the idea makes them recoil, as they are able to trace back the bean and the dollar to still countless untold suffering through the world. It is their faces that the police hope they are smashing when the light out wildly into a crowd with their truncheons,.. No, this is not your parents “love in” style protester, to be sure, “hair peace” is long gone, and unfortunately was never very effective, as Vietnam ended when they wanted it to, not because the people begged and bled. Please, while watching the video, remember that windows and police cars are all just a money, a physical shape which money has taken; juxtapose a broken window with a broken skull, and the
“We are coming for you black bloc”
