Tear Gas, Guns and Riot Squads: The Police State’s Answer to Free Speech Is Brute Force

Forget everything you’ve ever been taught about free speech in America. It’s all a lie. There can be no free speech for the citizenry when the government speaks in a language of force. What is this language of force? Militarized police. Riot squads. Camouflage gear. Black uniforms. Armored vehicles. Mass arrests. Pepper spray. Tear gas. Batons. Strip searches. Surveillance cameras. Kevlar vests. Drones. Lethal weapons. Less-than-lethal weapons unleashed with deadly force. Rubber bullets. Water cannons. Stun grenades. Arrests of journalists. Crowd control tactics. Intimidation tactics. Brutality. This is not the language of freedom. This is not even the language of law and order. Unfortunately, this is how the government at all levels—federal, state and local—now responds to those who choose to exercise their First Amendment right to peacefully assemble in public and challenge the status quo.

    John’s ruthless videos never cease to enlighten as well as entertain me! He truly strikes at the heart of this dynamic of slavery. The target is always right where it should be. He says the word over and over; in Latin it means “state of control”. That is the enemy of freedom, as history has shown time and time again.

  2. CAN IT BE DONE? YES. WILL IT BE DONE? NO.

    THERE IS A REASON THE WORLD IS IN THE STATE IT IS TODAY. I MIGHT JUST ADD THAT THE “PROTESTERS” OF LATE ARE EITHER LAWLESS THUGS OR PAID/ALIGNED AGITATORS SERVING THE SUBVERSIVE INTERESTS OF THEIR MASTER. WHY DO YOU THINK THE CAMPAIGN OF INFLAMMATORY RHETORIC/PROPAGANDA IS BEING EXECUTED? ITS PRECISELY TO BRING OUT THE PROTESTERS; THEN THEY WILL KNOW EXACTLY WHOM TO GO AFTER WHEN IT IS TIME TO DO SO. IS IT RIGHT? NO. WILL IT STOP? YES, BUT NOT BY ANY MEANS ASSERTED/EXERTED THROUGH/WITH THE RULE OF/BY MANKIND:
