Conspiracy theories are so much more fun. One question that people should ask: Why would anyone in the gov't or wherever, target Randi Rhoads. She's hardly politically important, and she reaches but a small audience. Folks might also keep in mind that being mugged is not that unusal an occurance, sadly.
27. Randi hangs with former Presidents,senators,etc...
Considering the caliber of guests she hosts, a political hit on Randi would certainly be enough to create a Chilling Effect among the pols that frequent her show, not to mention the thousands that may be reading DU...
It is impossible to know what the circumstances are at this time, but to say that she is not important is debatable.
11. These are hard threads to hit the recommend button for
In spite of the fact that these are true and recommendable things you are saying, my finger just doesn't want to do it, same for the thread that said she got mugged.
But it is almost inarguable: so so much from the VIPR Teams and Behavior Detection Officers to the trickle-down affects now resulting in financial officers getting blatantly shot in the head and now THIS.
Middle Phase of the Transition, I'd say overall we are 40% of the way complete now. Tyranny is taking a defintive shape.
And hunt around to see what Naomi Wolf is hearing anecdotally about Bushie reprisal against regular people, if you haven't already. Oh yes, they have just about finished reducing the Ruling Class to their will, now comes the daily tyranny for the rest of us.
1937. It's 1937. Randi is a taste of coming Kristallnachts, though I suspect ours will not happen all in one day.
25. We really do still need to wait and confirm these things, to hear what Randi has to say
And it is still possible this was random "wilding" stuff. It does happen.
But for now, it stinks to high heaven, especially the way they targeted her mouth and teeth, especially since they knew (if they were cowardly Freepers or Protest Warrior-types) she just had dental work.
And as I said in another thread, nothing says "Shut the fuck up you Liberal bitch!" quite like repeated teeth-smashing blows to the face. It sounds like a message a Nazi or a Bushie would leave.
14. This is not even close to 1937 Germany. It's not even close to 1919 Germany.
When someone like Kucinich is rifle-butted in the head, shot, and dumped in a river by gov't-organized gangs, then I'll say we have a similar level of reactionary practices to Germany. Right now what we have is different, but still very dangerous.
18. I've already explained this a million times, so here's the short version

IT WON'T LOOK LIKE IT DID IN IT'S PREVIOUS DISCREDITED FORMS. REBRANDING IS A MARKETING IMPERATIVE.
TOTALITARIANISM IS NOT MEASURED BY NUMBERS OF DEATHS BUT BY HOW IT KILLS.
AMERICAN TOTALITARIANISM IN THE 21ST CENTURY, BY VIRTUE OF TECHNOLOGICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PROGRESS, WILL BE MUCH LESS VIOLENT, AT LEAST IN THE BEGINNING. I WOULD NOT EXPECT WHOLSALE SLAUGHTER OF ENEMIES BECAUSE THAT WOULD MAKE PEOPLE LIKE YOU EVEN, SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE.
BUT IT NEEDS TO CAMOFLAUGE ITSELF. IT ALWAYS NEEDS TO CAMOFLAUGE ITSELF.
they might be stupid, but they're not too stupid to be too blatant and obvious about it. Each mutation of "1937 Germany" gets to improve on the last one and take advantage of the technology, awareness, and conditions existing in the particular reality of a specific time. You really think they're going to do things literally the same, as if following a cookbook from hell? "1937 Germany" was just one of many, many that were before and will be in the future.
38. I'm thinking it might be a good time to support security squads
It might be this is just a random act of violence, but I've been on those streets well after hours and pretty wasted and never had a problem. I figure Randi is too important a voice to be silenced and I'll put my butt on the line to make sure she's still part of the conversation. I'm no merc, but I do pretty good on situational awareness. I'd put my ass on the line to defend Randi. She's a voice we can't afford to lose.
