You will be assimilated
When John Kerry spoke today at the University of Florida Gainesville, student Andrew Meyer asked three questions during the Q&A:
1) Given that you won the 2004 election per Greg Palast's book, Armed Madhouse, why did you concede so on the day of the election itself when there were many reports on the day of the election of disenfranchisement of black voters and corrupted vote count? Kerry while the question was in progress said he didn't need to read the book b/c he already had read it.
Meyer said he had two more questions and asked them.
2) If you are really so opposed to the Invasion of Iraq(Iran?), why don't you urge impeachment of Bush now before he can invade Iran? Clinton was impeached for a blow job, invading Iraq/Iran is much for serious than that.
3) Were you a member of the secret society Skull & Bones in college?
Police swarmed Meyer to pull him from the microphone and remove him from the room. When he, like Rev. Lennox Yearwood at the D.C. Capital, whose leg was broken by D.C. b/c he asked why he was singled out to be refused admission to hear Petraeus testify, Meyer was thrown to the ground, swarmed, and tasered, screaming in pain. The fact that he didn't do anything wrong did not matter.
(between seconds 28-30, one officer can be seen with his taser(?) pistol drawn, aimed at the student.)
It is difficult to gauge what is worse in this whole despicable scene, the ridiculous behaviour of the cops, who clearly wanted to shut him down before he even asked a question, the sound of the monotonous Kerry, droning on in the background as though nothing was going on, or indeed the pathetic sight of an entire audience of Americans, who clearly have been quelled into submission by decades of rough police tactics and endless media browbeating, sitting on their hands while a fellow citizen is tackled and tasered for daring to ask some difficult questions.
While the episode is a small one, it speaks volumes about the real state of the union. And that state is none too healthy. That the questions were rather uncomfortable is without doubt and the first question is one that everyone who voted for the dopey drone would probably like to ask. But rather than demand that security leave the student alone and let him sit down, Kerry blathered on, apparently comfortable with the idea that, in the United States, such brute force in response to questioning authority figures is perfectly reasonable. No wonder the limp excuse for a suit rack gave up without a fight. Dissent holds no quarter with John Kerry, who apparently didn't think he was fighting for freedom when he was in Vietnam.
