By now, the world has seen the illegal violation of our nation’s sovereignty by the President of Turkey and his entourage, oppressing the first amendment rights and brutally assaulting of a group of protesters across the street from the embassy. Now it has been revealed that son of a bitch Erdrogan was sitting in his town car like a STD infected pussy giving the order to his goons to beat the crap out of the people picketing there.
The reaction to this has been swift from Americans, especially all those with social media accounts, but not enough to the greedy sycophant cowards in the House and Senate, with a select few like John “Return Of The Maverick” McCain, calling for investigations and even the ouster of the Turkish diplomat to the U.S..
While it is a fine thing to see punitive action, there is an underlying reason why that motherfucker Recep felt so comfortable bringing his authoritarian style of handling dissent here. And it’s not only that Figurehead Trump, with his mutual respect, admiration for the Wild Turk and Don’s obvious desire to imitate Erdrogan, the man and the tyrant. It’s that this similar abusive treatment and intimidation has been dished out regularly at any type of mass protest in the past 15 years by our own government, notably the militarization of local police forces in cities.
I recall when the Republican National Convention came to New York City, and the NYPD was deployed to cordon off protestors during marches and subjecting people into free speech zones. Anyone thought to breach these protocols instantly were placed in handcuffs, and that included passerbys and reporters. Since there were so many people detained for exercising their rights to free expression and assembly, the city, run by Mayor Bloomberg, set up a detainment center that was ignonimously called “Gitmo on the Hudson”.
Since those months of infamy, the last major national gatherings of public protest were the Occupy Wall St. movements and their nationwide spinoffs, standing ground and occupying plaza spaces and college campuses in major cities against the banking industry that ruined the economy and was rewarded with a socialist style bailout for their troubles. The people were subsequently met with injuries emitting from batons, rubber bullets, and pepper spray from the mass throngs of police depts. deployed to provide safety and security for them all.
But for the brevity’s sake and abject significance, there were two recent disgraceful events in the past year of government oppression committed that parallels the odious attack in D.C. the other day.
There was the mass protest in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It stemmed from a shooting death of Alton Sterling, who was prone face down on the ground, by a cop who claimed that he was armed as the officer and his partner were attempting to cuff him. When throngs of people showed up to march on the streets, organized by the Black Lives Matter movement, they were confronted by cops in full military gear, advanced weaponry and actual tanks. As people were marching forward, the police suddenly attacked everyone. The most disturbing part was when a bunch of protesters went into a house of someone offering sanctuary, the cops broke inside, warrantless, and dragged people out and brutally arrested them.
There was also this moment of clarity summarizing the asinine, excessive use of force and government ordered oppression:
The actual case against the cops was mired in controversy and chicanery by the Baton Rogue police dept, with a report of witness and evidence tampering involving a convenience store manager, breaking into store owners video cameras and taking the footage of the killing along with his cellphone. The cop has since been acquitted of all charges.
Then during last autumn and winter, during the waning days of the worst presidential campaign and election result the nation has ever seen and under the presidency of the insignificant Barack Obama, there was the DAPL pipeline protest at the river and lands of an Indian reservation in North Dakota. The people who set up camps to stop this grave atrocity and plunder which was made possible by lobbyist and legislative trickery and shameful subservience to big energy business by the Army Core Of Engineers. The protesters-the water protectors were initially being pushed around by hapless security contractors siccing dogs on them. When that didn’t intimidate the Standing Rock tribe, the cops in full stormtrooper gear came down with their tanks and humvees and after a few months, eventually forced them off, but not after shooting them with gas projectiles and water shooting from objects that would be more useful on forest wildfires. The latter which was used during frigid evenings.
Did I mention that this oppression on constitutional freedoms happened, as well as various other protests, under the tenure of President Barack Hussein Obama.
And now we got a guy in the White House who is salivating to use these resources to crush dissent and mass organizing that will surely come if his dystopian, oppressive budget and cultural and unconstitutional policies get enacted. Trump is off to a stellar start as he has appointed a tyrannical sadist rat bastard, Sheriff David Clarke, to DHS Deputy Secretary, who will gladly use his position to use his office to wreck any public assemblies rising up with any demands of accountability from our inherently corrupt administration, with all these dangerous military toys and state and city police depts. at his disposal.
So be prepared for more of this destruction of our civil rights and the transformation of our public servants to government tools of oppression. This is what you the people are paying for. So don’t be shocked when Putin and Kim Jong Un are leisurely strolling with the President Godfather and the disgusted and violated public yelling at them are being assaulted by their robotic, inhuman henchmen.
These policies, deployments and tactics were meant to deal with enemies trying to come here, but as recent history and Pogo has shown, the enemy, the preferred and considered enemy has been us all along.
