Republic Police State
The Republicans, true to their fascist nature, have organized police state repression in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The have raided houses of activists and anyone they suspect of anti-Republican sentiments kicking in doors, seizing computers and jailing many. Their focus has been on the RNC Welcoming Committee, an organizing center for protests around the convention but arrests have included journalists including Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! and progressives in general.
The National Lawyers Guild is actively engaged in fighting this unprecedented police abuse directed by the federal "Homeland Security" apparatus and is defending arrestees and trying to get seized property returned.
The unfolding pig-state nightmare seems to perfectly represent what the repugs are all about.
