Caging Protestors at the Democratic Convention: a Positive Spin

Putting political protestors in cages, especially those who would protest at the US Democratic party convention can be seen as a positive move, if you're a die-hard optimist.

For one thing, it puts the lie to the outdated and obsolete notion that the Democratic party is ideologically different from the Republican party, in case its endorsement of a candidate who supports extrajudicial executions, medical treatment as a commercial product, and the New! Improved! Manifest Destiny and deification of the corporate warlords, a candidate pledged to continue the slaugher of innocents, the pillage of the treasure of other nations weren't clear enough.

Wisely taking a tip from George Wallace's lesson learned in the 1958 Alabama governor's race, the Democratic choice is working hard to head off being "out-Terrored" by the Republicans.
Kerry admirers who a few months ago indignantly defended right-wing critics who assailed Kerry's repudiation of the Viet Nam war (after he had returned from his voluntary stint participating in it) now tout their kite-surfing exomorph as the man who can "get the job done" in Iraq and chide Bush for "allowing insurgents" to control this or that city in their own country.

This is all utterly unsurprising and predictable. I personally predicted it, and I have plenty of company.

Now the only thing left is for Kerry to call for internment camps for those with a "Middle Eastern appearance." He has already announced Zero Tolerance for "gang violence," to allay affluent white fears that he might attempt to alter the US policy of mass incarceration of black and brown people. He is learning the code. He's a smart one. Unlike his opponent, he is able to read and comprehend briefing papers, analyses and press reports.

Instead of cards with big block letters, staffers will be able to give Kerry just a few scrawled notes. He will be able to read the teleprompter without an auxiliary audio feed.

It is appropriate that this increased intellectual capacity in the proposed new syndicate figurehead be accompanied by increased intellectual honesty.

Which brings us back to caging the protestors. This time, when the event is over, the protestors will, as far as we know, be allowed to leave the cage and return to their homes.

Caging them in the first place is the big hurdle. Merely leaving  the cages locked will hardly make a ripple.

Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum. Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who should be put in a cage on gitmo
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
ductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
