Bullying Gestapo At Home And Abroad

Police have recently stated on the record that:

■Resisting police desires may be labeled “violence” … even if the police desires are unlawful
■Curling up in a ball to avoid police violence may be considered “active resistance” … justifying the use of more force, including baton strikes
Indeed, in modern America, even being worried that the government is acting in a bullying manner can literally get one arrested, committed to a psychiatric ward or labeled as a terrorist.

(Of course, if you speak out too much against the government, even worse things could happen to you.)

In other words, the government is using the age-old bully’s trick: pretending that the victim is the attacker, and the bully is merely defending himself.

The same is true in terms of our foreign policy. For example, when we accidentally kill foreigners, we pretend that they were armed or pretend that they were “militants”.

The government invaded Iraq because it claims Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and that he had a hand in 9/11 … but everyone knew that both claims were false.

The bully claims that “9/11 changed everything”, that we live in a “post -9/11 world” and that the Constitution is no longer realistic after 9/11. But the fact is that spying on Americans, the militarization of police, and the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran and throughout the Middle East and North Africa were all planned before 9/11…


The policemen apparently don’t realize that their pensions are being stolen also.

…“As we are learning, what is happening to Brandon Raub—arrested with no warning, targeted for doing nothing more than speaking out against the government, detained against his will, and isolated from his family, friends and attorneys—has happened many times before. These are the kinds of things that take place in totalitarian societies,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute. “Any American who claims to love their country—no matter what their political leanings are—should be outraged and alarmed over the abuses being meted out by government officials and tolerated by the courts.”…


So you think Raub’s faux psychiatric detention is an isolated incident. Consider:

…As prominent forensic psychiatrist James Knoll – psychiatry professor at SUNY-Syracuse and director of a forensic fellowship program – writes in the Psychiatric Times:

When psychiatric science becomes co-opted by a political agenda, an unhealthy alliance may be created. It is science that will always be the host organism, to be taken over by political viruses…. [P]sychiatry may come to resemble a new organism entirely — one that serves the ends of the criminal justice system…
