Just in case people think the police state meme is just vapor emanating from the tinfoil-encrusted minds of people who spend too much time on the internet, CNN posted this lovely snippet this morning:
Coming soon to a Republican Party Convention or WTO meeting near you, all sorts of high-tech wonder toys that can be tested on anti-American, granola-eating, Chomsky-reading hippies & homegrown terrorists. I’ll be curious if they’ll use them only on perps that wander out of the “free speech zones” that are usually miles away from the action, or if it’ll be open season everywhere.
While I’m not a huge fan of the donkey, there’s no way a Decomratic-led government would condone such overtly malicious ‘research’ of weapons on American civilians. More unsettling stories like this seem to be popping up every week, and I shudder to think what kinds of actions the government would allow law enforcement and the military to undertake if there was another major attack on the US.
