My letter to the Los Angeles Times regarding Naked Athena

They had an article today...


From cloud of Portland tear gas, Naked Athena appears

Please, more reporting on Portland, OR. I watched part of this last night on livestream, and was stunned by what I saw. A line of women proclaiming themselves to be Moms, including at least one heavily pregnant woman, were attacked with gas and smoke by unidentifiable camo-wearing thugs on the streets of an American city.

When I saw the the Naked Athena appear, I realized something profound was happening. She is aptly named for the warrior goddess of ancient Greece. But even more than that, when she took that iconic pose (thank you for printing it) I saw a mortal woman go Full Goddess: life, death, life. And for a moment, the forces of destruction were abashed.

May the Mother of All keep her safe.

32. I was trying to figure out why she sat down and opened her legs while holding out her empty hands.

Took some reading. Apparently she was showing the cops that she had nothing to harm them, so there was no reason for them to attack. Smart head game she played with those assholes, she had her game well planned out and she showed them up.

44. Naked protest is a thing in Portland...

It is also considered art, not that the commandos in the street knew that. She was masterful in they way she disarmed them.

Can't wait to see what shitneck 45 says about it when he decides to spew something forth.

36. Right. They aren't trained at all. They are just attack dogs at the beck and call of RW assholes

like barr and trump.

The thugs aren't supposed to be particularly well edjicated or attuned to the world.
The thugs are just supposed to cause violence, even when there is no reason for violence.

Then the thugs in the WH/DOJ/media can blame the innocents for the violence.

Because all of the thugs are getting their money and orders from the same source.
