The monster hesitates in DC when the police imperium in the former swamp now known as DC finds its Praetorians choosing restraint over domination when the subjects of the tax jurisdiction known as the United States remove barricades from an open memorial to American planetary predation to deposit them at the fencing around the White House where the denizens of the Offal Office plan and scheme to steal more wealth and make more war.
This was not simply restraint but maybe a primitive acknowledgement between predators of different stripes respecting the bloodlust of the other. Not only was this not representative of compassion on the part of the police apparatus in DC but simply professional courtesy to another foreign branch of the policing disease.
If the protesters had moved on more judicious liberty targets like the IRS or the Clown Palace at Capitol Hill, the police drones would have reacted more protectively in defense of their primary clients, the rulers.
The reptile brain in the various policing gangs such as DC Metro, Capital Hill and Park Service simply realized that the veterans visiting the War Memorials were kindred spirits to the vicious and sadistic mindset that animates 99 percent of all 19,000 police agencies across the fetid plain. Much like the schizophrenic mental paralysis that cripples the intellect of so many conservatives: the notion that we can wage war on the world but demand restraint at home of the same government that looses the dogs of war. Much like the lunatic Kucinich who espouses praiseworthy goals of stopping the militaristic foreign policy of America cold since its imperial germination in 1893 yet in the same breath he champions the aggressive socialist platform of using the government to violently extract wealth and time from its citizens so the productive support the parasites and looters at gunpoint in the sadistic lottery known as democracy.
You can’t have it both ways. I am pro-life and anti-death penalty and the consistency is in the championing of life over death. I am a non-voter but Ron Paul as opposed to Kucinich represents the best humans have to offer because he wants peace on earth both domestically and abroad. But he is one solitary man in an ocean of elected moral eunuchs whose mantra is to fine, kidnap, cage, maim and kill any human unwilling to obey as they march us to fiscal oblivion in the pursuit of the perfect police state.
